Sites That Might Need A Facelift

There have been many changes to the web in just a few short years.  Remembering back to the 90's all the text only websites, that had no graphics at all which made people not want to search as much as in 2017 and beyond.  Now with video, pictures, and social media, the web has become a place where many spend hours and hours every day.  Some websites like wait gutters and bend Oregon plumber might need to be brought into 2017, however, it doesn't always mean its a good idea.

Some of the oldest ugliest websites, out pull newer more creative websites by a long shot.  Only the business owner and the marketing professional know how well the site is pulling new business.  Sometimes it can be a good idea to leave good enough alone.  Then, when we see a newer site like veterans plumbing which may not do well at all, compared to dry ice Louisville with great photos of before and after makes us realize there are so many variables to how a site really works.

Your site may not need a facelift if it is working for you, however, sometimes it can be a good idea like this design x hair and  bend custom home builder did.  With photos and video really changing the web every day it can be a good idea to integrate them into your website.  There are a lot of options to create a newer more advanced website with video and photos, but if your site is working well you may just want to let good be.

Should You Include Social Media On Web Pages?

I don't think having social media on a website is even up for debate anymore.  Of course, you should include any and all social media that your business participates in.  Here is a company 911 plumbing and I cannot find any social media.  On the other hand, I find a bend custom home builder with social media at the bottom of the page.  Of course, I believe that finding a place nearer the top would be better it is still good that it included on the main page.

Here is an example for Bend heating that there is only one Facebook link.  More social media would only help this business in his local market.  Here is yet another example of an Aliso Viejo carpet cleaner who has no social media on his or hers website.  The more the better in this day and age because of all the reviews you can gain.  Consumers look at those reviews and make decisions based on those reviews.

Here are some to look at that have social media:

Burbank Salon
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing
Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse

Here are some without social media:

Capital Fence
Daves Chain Link Fencing
dry ice Louisville

Get all the social media on your website possible.  It will only help your business.

Great Custom Home Builder Websites!

If you are going to put together a custom home builder website you better get some great photos.  This just isn't a regular home builder but a custom home builder.  Don't you agree that a custom home builder should have some custom photos of their custom home building projects?  Here are a few that have done well for their clients.
First,  this Bend Custom Home builder DC Graham Construction has a terrific website.  It appears that they have had a professional take some terrific pictures of their custom homes in Bend Oregon.  This is a pro site and if you are doing a custom home builder website do not skimp on the photos.
Here is another website that did not skimp on the photos.  Rosewood custom builders have an incredible website as well.  The photos become so important in a site like this.  If you are a custom builder and have second-grade photos who in their right mind would ever want to do business with you.

Another Great Local Website!

I just thought this site for dry ice Louisville was an incredible local site.  First off if you wanted to buy dry ice Louisville, the site has everything you need to know.  Also, the photos on the site are well done and give the consumer exactly what they need to know.
Whoever put this content together on this page really knew what they were doing.  If this website doesn't pull conversions after a while then it isn't the sites fault.  Also, on the dry ice blasting Louisville page, another well-constructed page with all the bells and whistles behind the scenes as well.
The only thing I would add is to have more information in the footer from the webmaster who constructed this website because it's just that good.
