Web Design


Website Design That Provides Maximum Return On Investment

Designing a website is not a cakewalk. We understand this and try to provide you with a solution that makes your website captivating. We consider who exactly is going to be using your website and what would you like them to do once you have their attention?

Typically, you need to look at your industry and decide how sophisticated the good or service that you provide is. If every job is custom, then often a phone call is better suited to handle the transaction. Or if the purchase is particularly technical or legal, is it better to have a request a call back feature instead, so that someone from your end who can handle those questions is actually facilitating the sale. Is your clientele computer savvy and would like to book online? Or are they a telephone purchaser who wants to be handled by an inside sales representative that assures them their decision is sound?

Look, we get it and we are confident that we can understand your business and contribute positively to your bottom line with your website.


Primarily we work in WordPress with either custom themes or Photoshop designs converted to WordPress. Themes work well for standard industries and for lower budget websites but custom web design is where we shine. Our design team scours the internet for features of existing websites that are working well for other companies. We then tweak the designs, so that your website is unique. We have some custom designs that we use such as a footer that we modify for most websites that we create. We are a firm believer in if “if it works, don’t fix it” and frankly our footers are engineered with precision. Why re-create the wheel for each customer when we can maintain 20% overlap between our customers are offer a superior product both from a search engine marketing perspective and user experience?

What Is A Wordpress Theme And What Is A Pro Theme?

A set of files that function together and help produce an interface to design a blog on, is called the WordPress Theme.

Basically the set of files is referred to as template files and the user is provided by the front end designing concepts and ideas. It is an extremely user-friendly platform which is used to publish a weblog and the functionality involved is a very simple process. Themes are made available free of cost and with an array of plugins provided, the WordPress Themes are a great source for bloggers to make their blogging experience enjoyable. Sometimes a small fee is charged for more advanced features provided to the user, depending on the user’s need. The WordPress Themes need to be installed in the website or the blog site of which you are the owner and the hosting company responsible for hosting the website or the blog will install the WordPress Themes The themes will depend on the topic and the subject area of the website or the blog on which the WordPress Themes is installed.

Getting Your Website Customer To CALL You NOW

Something else that needs to be considered is if your goal is simply to generate as many calls as possible because you can handle the call volume and it takes a conversation to demonstrate and sell the product or service to a client. We can direct customers to call you to find out specific answers to common questions.

For example, we can use :

“Please call our office to discuss this with our customer service team.”

If the client is looking for this product or service, they now need to call you to get any more information. Once you have them on the phone, your staff has an opportunity to earn their business and have them make a favorable decision and purchase something.

We also can increase the font and visibility of the phone number so that it is essentially front-and-center when they are navigating the webpages.

All of our phone numbers are click to call on mobile devices and desktops that have the proper programs installed to make calls installed.

We commonly put in links into the text so that a customer can CLICK HERE to call you right now from their mobile or desktop application.

We work with you to find a balance between function and aesthetics to bring you a return on your investment and deliver something that you can be proud to have as an extension of your branding.

Marketing For Websites And Why Is Design So Important?

A website design is not about showing the world how good of web developers you are, it is supposed to be an extension of your brand that pays for itself over and over with many benefits such as: leads, sales or telephone calls and even increased qualifying of potential customers that saves you valuable resources like support staff payroll.

With an seo optimized themed content package, we can set up an interlinking structure that will out rank your competition on Google and enhance your visibility to search engines.

This is serious business; we tie your website into knots ten pages deep with an overall strategy to maximize the return on investment for our customers. Some people try and copy our techniques but lets be honest, we are very good at what we do and we feel that we can deliver value well beyond the sticker price on our website design packages.

Small Business Web Design that Makes Cents

We like to consider specifics of the company into the web design. For example, is there a product or service that you can scale easily or that is more profitable than the others? We can essentially push your more profitable search terms with careful website design that makes it easy for your target market to select your service. We ask small businesses to pick one product or service that we will promote a little hard than the rest. Often this is the icing on the cake for seo return on investment.

We also ask practical questions like can you handle more call volume if it was to come through? Or is your phone time not as productive as it used to be and are you converting less calls to leads than before?

If your business can only handle a 100 calls a day and you are getting 120, we may as well qualify the website users with pricing, reviews, feedback and other content that saves your staff from saying the same thing over and over. Sorry, we don’t offer delivery in the middle of the night because our bylaws won’t allow it. By putting operating hours on the website you are weeding out the ones that were never going to do anything other than waste your time to begin with. You are also creating relevancy which will be the gift that keeps on giving as Google learns to measure quality of content and apply it to its Rank Brain algorithm.

Some designers focus on a site that is awe inspiring and try and win 1st place in a web design contest. We would rather convert your visitors into paying customers and contribute to your bottom line.

We also feel its important to note that the architecture of a website is very important. Google doesn’t evaluate how awe inspiring a site is. Instead they look for user experience factors such as mobile compatibility, loading page speed and how easy it is for Google to crawl your site. Google also considers the organization of your website and whether you provide easy access to a sitemap and robots.txt. Often these details are not part of a designer’s skill set and are not part of the initial design. Some web design firms believe this is an Seo task. At 123 Marketing, this is something that we consider the basis of a good website.

Sadly, many of our customers end up using a web designer through a friend of a friend because we all have those. They then want their website to show up on Google when their potential customers are searching for them and end up paying for a new website with us instead.
