Don’t be invisible, but don’t be viewed badly

I was driving to an appointment the other day and heard a commercial for a national broadband internet service provider and phone company speaking to small business owners about their services.  It seems (according to the comercial at least) that over 40% of small businesses are not online.  After stating this they said "if your small business is not online then it is like you are invisible".  This is a statement that we at Your-Web-Guys not only agree with, but would like to emphaisze. 

If your small business does not have a website, then it is like you are invisible!

Its true.  Many of your potential clients and even current or previous clients are looking for you online.  If you dont have a website then those past, present and future clients can and will not be able to find you to do business with you when they go online to find you.  But you know all that so i wont rehash it here.

The commercial went on to say that if you get your internet service with them then you get a website for free through their do it yourself service.  When I heard that I almost had an accident.  Let us review... if you dont have a website you are invisible, so make one yourself. 

Really?

We at Your-Web-Guys would like to respectfully disagree.  Lets see if that statement makes sense for other things you need for your small business;

  • Employees in professional uniforms make your company look better so you should make them yourself.
  • Businesses must have business cards so you should print them on your inkjet printer.
  • Computers are imperative to your company so you should build them yourself.
  • Your office needs to be re-wired so you should do it yourself.

Of course none of those statements make sense.  This reminds me of a quote I heard by Mark Twain "It's better to be quiet and let people think you are stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt".  Maybe it is better to be invisible online than it is to be online and really bad.  Just because you can do something yourself doesnt mean you should.  Many times your website is the first impression that you make on potential clients. 

Give us a call and find out exactly how beneficial a professional website can be for your business.  You may be surprised at just how affordable it really can be.

Very good first impression followed by a clean site and helpful support. Richard continues to be informative and adaptive to our wants and to tend to our needs. I believe in the weeks to follow we’ll meet our goals, then exceed them.

When the site crashed this afternoon (as all websites occasionally do), my phone call was answered outside regular business hours. They were already aware of the problem and were working on it. The site was down for a little over half an hour– not a bad response time imo.

And it has nothing to do with their competence or professionalism, but their office building is very zen

I have worked with several different web design companies just because of the line of work I am in, I can say without a doubt that YourWebGuys is the best! I have been working with them now for well over a year and have never second guessed their ideas, motive for the betterment of the company I work for, nor their pricing!

If I call Richard, he answers directly. And if I do have to leave a message, I get a callback within the day. An email sent to support is answered within hours!

I have learned so much from his team, and look forward to working with them for many more years.

When the Mansfield ISD Education Foundation needed a fast turn-around and professional service Your-Web-Guys delivered!! Your-Web-Guys helped our foundation design and launch a new and creative way for our parents and community to help us fund more terrific projects and get much needed resources into our classrooms to benefit children! This dynamic addition to our website seemed imposssible at first, but Your-Web-Guys made it a reality and now anyone in our community or the world can donate or contribute towards our innovative teaching grants. We agree that there are many other website design companies out there but we strongly recommend Your-Web-Guys for your website design and implementation.

I have found Your-Web-Guys to be professional, creative and very, very accessible when it comes to making sure my website is functioning just as it should. I strongly recommend this company for your website design and implementation.

There are many other website design companies out there and they promise a lot. But after talking with some of them I understood that their objectives did not include taking care of, or focusing on, small business. In contrast to that, I’ve found Your-Web-Guys to be geared to work with small and growing businesses

We needed a bold, effective and usable web page that attracted the customers we were seeking for our wedding and events venue. The process was easy and flexible and Your-Web-Guys was outstanding.

They were very knowledgeable and extremely patient. We have used web designers in the past, but Your-Web-Guys will be our designers from now on. And the page was done ON TIME!

Your-Web-Guys carefully listened to our corporation representatives as we discussed every element that we needed to incorporate into a web site. We had used other web designers, but none ever addressed future as well as present needs.

Your-Web-Guys accomplished a very successful design and we were VERY pleased with our experience and the end result.
