Welcome to the website for the Austin WebKing, a small web design and development company catering to small businesses. My mission is simple and straightforward: to help your small business establish an aesthetic, affordable website that adds value by generating more clients and sales. As a small business myself, I understand the challenges you face – limited resources, a need to control overhead, and a tight marketing budget. I design websites without templates so that you receive a unique site that matches your small business look and feel. Above all, my services are cost-effective and your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Today, over 72% of the United States population has access to the Internet (Internet World Stats) and 76.5% of Internet users use the web to search for product or service information ( U.S. Census Bureau - [PDF]). A well designed website will help you retain customers that might otherwise connect with a competitor and generate new clients seeking your services or products. Learn more about why your small business needs a website.
Most small businesses don’t have the resources for dedicated Information Technology staff. And while widely available software makes creating a website less complicated, the first factor of a successful website is a design that reflects your mission and conveys a professional image. Research shows that "Unless the first impression is favourable, visitors will be out of your site before they even know that you might be offering more than your competitors" (BBC News). I design websites with a professional look and feel that work with your existing business image to promote visitor confidence. Learn more about my website design and development services.
The second factor in a successful website is being found. 84% of online Americans use search engines and 87% of search engine users report finding the information they want most of the time when they used search engines (Pew Internet & American Life Project - [PDF]). Having a website is not enough – you must have a website that can be found easily in search engines and one that separates itself from competitor sites. Using responsible, best practice Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques, I can help make your site search engine friendly. Learn more about my search engine optimization services.
