Website Design

Your customer’s experience is everything

You know you want a good, clean website design. But do you really know what your website needs in order for it to be effective?

The sad truth is that not all designers are marketers. When it comes to creating a website, you need to know that your website IS marketing. And its design is only as strong as the results it produces.

Actually, design is more important for converting visitors into customers than you may think.  Many things come in to play here: navigation, ease of use, organization, calls-to-action, words and message, imagery and the visual hierarchy (emphasizing more important elements over less important ones).

In addition, the more options a user has when using your website, the more difficult it is to use. To provide a better user experience, eliminating non-essential information ensures minimal distraction and increases the opportunity for conversions. It’s all about making a website simple and easy to use.

The main function of your website is to attract and convert customers and this can only be achieved when you have a good website strategy in place.

Content precedes design.

Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.

—Jeffrey Zeldman

 

Design Meets Strategy

With a firm understanding of the results you want to achieve, Graphic Design by Lisa will recommend a strategic plan to develop an effective website design to optimize your online marketing efforts.

Marketing online is not what it used to be.  Today it’s about aligning with your customer’s needs and wants, providing abundant value, and building a relationship of trust.  Your website is a key component to your online marketing and requires a smart and effective plan to ensure new visitors are converted to sales or highly interested prospects.

It’s all in the results.

“We cannot recommend Lisa highly enough.  She totally saved the day for our fledgling web site.  She quickly helped us with artwork and concepts that reflected who we were and what we wanted and combined all of that into a web site that is not only effective and professional, but one we are very proud of too.”  

—Elysa Dennett, President and CEO, Explorer Systems, Inc.

Why Choose Graphic Design by Lisa?

Each project presents new challenges in terms of features and functionality, which is why pricing can vary wildly based on any individual website’s purpose and audience. Our pricing usually falls above the cheap, package-type website (where your content is put up as-is without any thought to marketing or actually converting your prospects) and below a big agency’s service.

Each website we create starts with a thorough understanding of the results you want to achieve and is combined with effective design and smart strategic marketing.

And it’s done with style.
