Small business owners have a lot of options when it comes to choosing who builds their business websites. Central Pennsylvania is flush with website designers ad ad agencies of all sizes, and more and more small business owners are attempting the DIY approach using tools like SquareSpace. With so many options, why should you choose Reich Web Consulting?
Small business owners have a lot of options when it comes to choosing who builds their business websites.
Some brave souls will choose to go it alone and build a site themselves using services like SquareSpace, Wix, or Godaddy’s Web Page Builder. Others will choose a budget “webmaster” who claims to be able to meet their every need for a seemingly low-cost. And still others will go in the opposite direction and hire a massive ad agency to create their business website. With all these options, where does Reich Web Consulting fit into the mix? And why should you hire us?
Thoughtful Small Business Websites
Automated tools like Square Space are missing one important feature: the human element. At Reich Web Consulting, we don’t just provide business websites from a template: we make them yours. We strive to understand your business, your customers, and how we can use your website to reach them most effectively. We base design and technology decisions based on your needs rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Can an automated website builder do that?
Experienced, Educated, and Reliable
Reich Web Consulting has three qualities you won’t necessarily find in your friendly neighborhood “webmaster”: experience, education, and reliability.
I’ve been making websites since, well… Google didn’t exist yet. Can we agree that’s a long time? Check out my project portfolio to see some examples. We prefer to let our work speak for itself. You can read more about my professional background on the About Us page.
I earned a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science from Bloomsburg University. Since graduation in 2006 I’ve stayed relevant by constantly reading books and online resources, and participating in paid training programs such as Lynda.com and Yoast Academy. Online marketing is a fast-changing business. You can’t trust a webmaster who can’t commit to changing along with it.
(By the way: if someone is still referring to themselves as a webmaster, that’s probably an indication that they’re a fossil by industry standards.)
We Make You a Priority
Reich Web Consulting loves building websites and online marketing solutions for small businesses. But we can’t meet all of your marketing needs. Any form of print, for example, is simply not in our bag of tricks.
Small businesses may be tempted to hire a large ad agency as a one-stop shop that can handle all of their marketing needs. That sounds tempting, right? But ad agencies are complex creatures with massive overhead. In order to remain on their radar you need to have the desire and the capitol to feed the beast. Often ad agencies are eager to get your business, only to push you to the bottom of their priority list because larger accounts are their bread-and-butter.
At Reich Web Consulting small businesses are our priority. Our mission isn’t to grow into the massive marketing machine I described above: it’s to provide our local small business clients with high-quality web marketing services. Rest assured: if you choose to work with Reich Web Consulting you’ll be treated with honesty, professionalism, and the importance you and your business deserve.
