For the EC's here that keep web sites: Have you found that business has increased since you launched it, as opposed to the years you did NOT have a web site?
No, but then our website wasn't meant to generate sales. It is more a reinforcement and sale support.BuzzKill said:For the EC's here that keep web sites: Have you found that business has increased since you launched it, as opposed to the years you did NOT have a web site?
I'm doing something wrong, Hack, mine has been dead for months. I have 0 knowledge of SEO apparently, cause my keywords just don't work for meIf business hasn't increased after putting up a website, you did something wrong :laughing:
A very simple website with even the most basic on-page SEO should get at least a couple calls per month.
So not a single customer has found your company via your website?No,
I doubt that any one sale could be directly attributed to our web presence.
Your first paragraph is correct, a website's goal is to get people to call you for work. While it could also do as Thomps says and educate your customers as well.Unless you're selling items directly from your website, a website is a means to know who you are and how to contact you. That's it. Nothing more.
It's a misconception to think having a website will automatically make you money. There are plenty of scams out there that want to "advertise" your website promising you business by search ads and what not. Just a crock of nonsense. I've been doing websites for over 15 years and if you want to make the most out of the internet get word of mouth advertising on user reviewed sites like Yelp.com or kudzu.
Faxing? No one uses your website? Do you live in 1980sville up there or something?So not a single customer has found your company via your website?
No. Not as an initial point of contact. That being said, I'm sure some of the numerous faxes that GC's send out each week to every contractor in town asking for prices were probably sent because they got our info from the web.
