If you are looking for a new website, you are in the right place… My name is Oren Givoni and I’m a WordPress developer. I wrote this article to help you taking the right decision of picking your professional.
Nowadays, there are many options out there… Young unexperienced developers, programmers, web designers and lots but lots of charlatans… It is not so hard to build websites and there are many alternatives you probably heard of: WordPress, Wix, Shopify, Magento and much more.
From the other hand, there are many kinds of websites, but the question that matters is only:
“Do you have customers from the website? And if so – do you feel it serves the full potential?”
The difference from a good website and one that doesn’t work
A website is a process of giving information using 3 elements: images/ videos, texts and functionality. Once your potential client visits your website, he or she starts to experience your business or personality and go through a psychological process.
If the process is right, a desired outcome should happen and the user will do what you expect him to do – buy, ask for more details, follow you or at least remember you for time of need.
I always say to my clients, if your WordPress developer is a programmer, your website will technically work fine, but most probably clients will not find the right path and act the way you want them to. If you developer is a designer, the website will look great, but still – there are so many good-looking websites that don’t fulfil their potential in sales…
Here comes the marketing approach – the website should turn to your specific target audience, talk their language both literally and visually, give them a story that will direct them into performing a certain desired action. This is my approach.
Many people turn to website development companies, that have all the functions but what they don’t realize that they end talking to a project manager that is pushing the project and not necessarily has the right qualifications and skills to evaluate all the necessary requirements.
Many of my clients are other developers disappointed customers, they come after their websites are not working well and we re-do their websites. You should read carefully the below articles and pick the right website builder.
