A Fully Managed White Label Web Design Solution

As our partner in the web design process, you are our eyes and ears when it comes to communicating with the end-client. Considering this is a white label web design service, we never reveal our company name or information to your client, so making contact and gathering information is the part where you must come through major league! Finding out what the client wants and needs, checking likes and dislikes and gathering content are vitally important processes during the beginning stage of our partnership. The more accurate the information provided the easier the project will run. Having a happy wholesale web design client throughout the process from design to completed project makes for easy work.

Waiting for the magic of the first design and presenting to the client is when it gets exciting. Now the white label web design partner takes over. The hard work of collecting and collating information is now rewarded when the designer makes it all visual. First, the homepage and once approved, the inner page templates are presented for approval.

Once the design and layout of the new white label web design project have been approved and the client is absolutely in love, our development team takes the reigns on the project. At this time, our team begins developing the wholesale web design and making all the pieces come together and layout nicely. You and your client are given the opportunity to check the site to see that all is working well and to confirm the responsive elements are working as they should.

At this stage of the partnered white label web design project, WebDesign499 goes through full testing processes to ensure all is working with the website, contact forms have the right email addresses, social media buttons link and all features function as they should.

The migration has been completed and the site looks great. WebDesign499 is happy to schedule a training call with the white label web design partner or with the client. If you so please, WebDesign499 will call the client on your behalf, never mentioning our company and acting on behalf of your company, agency or firm. We consider ourselves web design consultants working for your company, so privacy and project confidentiality is our first priority. At this point in the project, the best case is for your company to work with the website so that easy support can be provided to your finished white label web design client. WebDesign499 support staff is available should any assistance ever be needed. The best result? A happy client.

Outsource Your Projects: White Label Web Design

Having a web design team on your staff and offering web design as an in-house service is not always the best solution! Having a design and development employee or employees is most definitely more often a cost rather than a profit. Not only do you need space and staff, but you also need to throw money at upgrading expensive equipment every few months. Add to this the fact that good staff is headhunted from you or leave to set up their own business and you can see that an in-house web design team can end up being a headache rather than a division that adds value.

When designing your white label web design projects in-house, you also need to bring in a steady stream of work to keep your team busy and make the company division cost-effective. What is enough work? That again is a question. White Label Web Design SolutionYou don’t want to keep your clients waiting, but you also don’t want to have too much staff hanging around in case you have a month where no new work comes in. In this industry, we see this all too often! Instant headache. What it really comes down to is about whether you and your team actually know what’s going on. Are you up to speed with the latest technology and web design trends. Did responsive web design catch you off guard or were you ahead of the pack? Do you know whether your design and development team know what they are doing or do you get some horrible shocks when presenting to clients and nothing works as it should.

It certainly makes sense for a large business to setup a web design and development team where turnover is high enough to employ a knowledgeable project manager and good staff. If you’re a small print shop, marketing agency, SEO agency or design firm, it could be a costly exercise that you may regret sooner than later! WebDesign499 takes that headache and stress off of your shoulders! Outsource your web design projects and make an amazing profit! You will be pleasantly surprised with how our current partner agencies are making out! With the WebDesign499 current pricing structure, small business websites start at only $499! This includes a fully designed website, built in a beautiful content management system such as WordPress, with 5-6 pages including photo galleries and contact forms!

Before You Hire An SEO Agency: Read This!

Many businesses are becoming frustrated with the SEO process due to neglect, broken promises and hyped up crap with zero results in the end. Not to mention that part about the price of Search Engine Optimization being costly, yet effective if done properly. Very effective, if done properly, is the key. So, we understand when a business owner comes to us frustrated and miserable because he or she is being taken for an “SEO Ride” as we like to call it. Your SEO agency is throwing you for a loop yet again. They never forget your credit card number, but it seems like they forget everything else about you, your business, your goals, and especially your SEO campaign. That monthly invoice shows up on time each month, month after month. You’re shaking your head because the phones aren’t ringing and nobody is finding your business on the Internet. Sound familiar? As much as I hope you muttered “no” to the screen, the sad truth is that a large majority of small business owners face this situation day in and day out, including many of our clients. In fact, many of our clients have used tons of different so-called “SEO agencies” before working with us, with little to no results, period. Usually, when they get to the end of their wits and give us a call at WebDesign499, we make it there last. We strive day in and day out to provide our clients the best possible services in the industry!

SEO Warning Signs WebDesign499Now, we are certainly not saying that every SEO agency sucks except for WebDesign499. That would be an assumption that no decent SEO agency would make. (Hint: If they do, that’s a no-no in itself right there!)

The truth of the matter is that there are plenty of talented, very successful SEO companies out there that offer solutions and services similar to ours, but unfortunately, for each reputable SEO agency that exists now-a-days, we can count 50+ that are willing to just accept your monthly retainer and run with it. So, we have compiled this list of some red flags to look out for before hiring an SEO agency for your business. Take a look below.

1. Too-Good-To-Be-True Promises & Guarantees

Have you ever heard the saying “If it seems to good to be true, it probably is”? We hope so, because you’ll need to keep it in mind when choosing your next SEO company to represent and work on behalf of your business. Now, plenty of people or agencies can promise your company a #1 spot on Google, Yahoo or Bing, but the truth of the matter is, nobody can predict how the Search Engines are going to respond. If an agency is promising you a page 1 guarantee, they are not being fully honest with you. Listen, WebDesign499 ranks many, many clients on the first page of the SERPs, but there is always the chance that the first page will be too competitive and it might not happen. It’s not that a reputable SEO agency like ours can’t consistently bring quality traffic and a return on investment to any website, it’s the simple fact that we don’t control the search algorithms, and therefore, we can only guarantee you’ll get our absolute best, which in many cases, is the first page top spots!

2. Take A Look At The Agency’s Online Reviews

Internet users see online search as the most trusted source of information about people and companies, and you should consider that powerful statistic before choosing any SEO agency. Pro tip, don’t rely solely on client testimonials posted on the company you’re considerings website, but make sure you visit and look through reviews on non-biased platforms such as Yelp, YellowPages and other directory websites. Chances are you’ll find little to no negative or constructive feedback on their website, but will find the truth here and there on other non-biased directory sites.

A simple google search for the company’s name with “reviews” appended to the end should do the trick. At the same time, not all negative feedback is created equal. Keep in mind that there are malicious people out there and competitor’s that will go out of their way to ruin someone or some place’s reputation online. Ensure you fully understand each situation to the best of your ability and use this existing client feedback as a platform to help you understand the reputability of the considered SEO company in question.

3. Not An Open Book (Non-Transparent)

This is very important and holds a lot of weight on our list. If a Search Engine Optimization company can’t be upfront with you about their link building techniques and strategies, their sources for content writing and their overall strategy, how can you trust them with your company’s online presence? Are you willing to risk a Google penalty and de-indexation over some shady techniques or strategies? I sure would hope not! Black-hat SEO methods can land you in big trouble with the Search Engines today and recovering from those penalties can be a massive uphill battle. If an SEO firm isn’t transparent and super-open about their methods, chances are there’s a good reason for that lack of transparency – they are covering something up or hiding something.

4. No Reports Or Statistics Shown Or Offered

Keeping the client “in the loop,” per say, is extremely important during an SEO campaign. If you can’t keep track of what your Search Engine Optimization agency is doing WebDesign499 SEO Agencyfor you, how can you trust they’re doing anything at all? Chances are, they’re not! Do they send out Analytics reports? Do they set up goal tracking? Do they have any type of project management system? These are all important questions to ask a Search Engine Optimization agency before signing on with them to represent your business online.

When you work with WebDesign499, we will provide you weekly reports and updates to keep you “in the loop” during our link-building and SEO strategies. We use Google Analytics and goal tracking to keep you up to date on every statistic important to you and your business. In addition, we provide a detailed rank tracking report sent out weekly for our rankings we are going after. For lead generation based campaigns, we also set up robust call tracking tools to keep you informed of every call or lead that we generate for your business, as well as the source of each call, whether PPC, Organic, Social, etc.

5. Bottom-Of-The-Barrel Pricing (Low-Balling)

According to https://placementseo.com/philadelphia-seo/, everyone loves a good deal, but don’t make the mistake of deciding on an SEO firm strictly based on their cheap, cheap price. Everyone knows you get what you pay for, in every scenario, including SEO. Have you ever heard the saying, “You don’t know how expensive it is to hire an amateur until you do?” It’s true! Hiring an agency with little skill or experience because they offered you a $300/month SEO service is going to be very, very bad in the end. When it really comes down to it, good SEO isn’t cheap. Quality SEO services require time, dedication, research, a quality, native-speaking content writer, a constantly evolving strategy, the list goes on. So if your potential SEO partner is quick to lowball their prices in an attempt to get you to sign on, it’s probably not a good sign. If they don’t value their services, why should you? Please, save yourself a lot of time and headaches and don’t hire the agency or individual offering you $300/month SEO and guaranteeing a page one ranking! Just don’t, please!

6. Absolutely Zero Evidence Of Their Work (No Proof)

Unless your SEO-to-be is a student, or a friend or family member looking to gain experience and build a portfolio, then there’s really no excuse to not have a portfolio or case studies of some sort, to showcase their skill set and their accomplishments. Look for complimentary or similar companies to yours that have had success. Don’t hesitate to reach out directly to those individuals as well and ask them how they’ve enjoyed working with the firm in question. You might be surprised at what you learn! (Hopefully a good surprise…) Any SEO agency worth their weight will be able to show you several page one, top three position rankings. If you google North Port SEO, you will see that our agency, WebDesign499, is #1 for our market for multiple key search terms. If you google Port Charlotte SEO or Charlotte County SEO, you will also see that we are an extremely competitive firm and go after our rankings hard. The point is, please, research the company’s SERP positions. Don’t take their word for it! Ask them for proof of rankings and examples of client’s they have ranked on the Search Engines!

The Bottom Line

What all of this really comes down to is the fact that if you don’t take the time to do your research and make an informed decision regarding your choice for hiring an SEO agency, it will more than likely come back to haunt you in your nightmares. Don’t make that mistake! Fully investigate each and every aspect of any Search Engine Optimization firm you are considering. Ask plenty of questions like the points we’ve made clear in this article and make sure to get the answers you’re looking for. Don’t settle for cheap or inexperienced SEO agencies.

At WebDesign499, we take seriously our responsibility as an SEO provider to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not to partner with us to help grow your business online. If we don’t think we’re a good fit, we’ll tell you! What we offer is not for every business out there! We get it and we’re willing to take the time to sit down and help you get it too! If you’d like to talk with us further about potentially joining the ranks of other successful WebDesign499 clients, we’d love to chat with you. Give us a call today at (561) 506-0398 or visit https://www.webdesign499.com/discovery-form/ and we will put together a beautiful website audit for your company and show you how WebDesign499 can benefit you today!

 

The Way To Hire A Port Charlotte Internet Marketing Agency

Hiring an Internet Marketing Agency to help your company expand your brand reach and develop better search engine rankings can be an excellent decision you can make in 2017, provided that you make a smart choice and work with a reputable company with proven results. So, what exactly does that mean? For this business working relationship to work properly, both parties must establish trust and confidence right off the bat with one another. Considering that there are millions of choices out there to pick from, here are some super important things to take into account before you go out and hire an Internet Marketing Agency.

1. Define your goals clearly and stick to them.

When it comes to your own company, nobody in this world knows your customer base and what they want better than you do. Before running out and hiring an Internet Marketing Agency to take over your company’s marketing strategy, make sure your business goals are clearly defined and bold.

SEO Agency Port Charlotte, FLA lot of people call a Port Charlotte SEO agency or Port Charlotte Web Design firm and tell them that they “want them to make their business better.” Many agencies will pat you on the back when you ask this question and rush to take your business and your hard earned money from you based on this question and offer. This always works out much in favor of the Internet Marketing Agency and much less in favor of your business! Allowing an agency to take over your marketing without clearly defined business goals can lead to a serious money pit and disaster with your newly found marketing efforts.

What exactly is it that you want to accomplish with your marketing? Are you looking to drive leads to your website so that customers call you? Maybe you want to increase your Social Media presence and engage more customers in that fashion? Does your company want to increase overall brand awareness and branch reach, making your company a household name across America?

Whatever you do, before you start hiring Internet Marketing Agencies, please make sure you know what you’re trying to accomplish ahead of time! Any Internet Marketing Agency willing to take your business before hearing EXACTLY what you want to accomplish is probably not the best agency to hire in this case. I am willing to bet they care less about your company and a whole lot more about your retainer! Sticking to this advice will save you a lot of heartache and money in the long-run.

2. Does the agency know how to measure a clear Return on Investment and campaign success?

As a business, you must have a really clear grasp or understanding of your numbers and figures. Your data is paramount when engaging in online marketing! Does your Internet Marketing Agency know, down to the penny, how much it costs your company to generate a new life-long client or customer? This information and data will come into play when measuring a successful or unsuccessful online marketing strategy and campaign.

How much is it costing you to generate a single new client from your traffic sources?

Which traffic sources or campaigns are currently providing the lowest conversion costs?

Do you have landing pages that are converting better than others? A/B Testing?

If you question your online marketing experts, they should be able to answer these questions without a problem of any sort. Get to know the different terms when it comes to measuring campaign success. If an online marketer is bragging to you that a piece of content they published for your company received an enormous amount of impressions but cannot reveal what type of return that translates to overall, it doesn’t matter because it’s not making you money!

Listen, it’s great that your content and your company is reaching so many people across the nation, but if it isn’t converting to dollars, what is the point? I love the saying, “If it doesn’t make dollars, it doesn’t make sense.”

3. Scared money doesn’t make money.

What you spend and put into your online marketing, you will get out of it. Hiring a “cheap” Internet Marketing Agency is not a good plan. Online marketing is expensive because it requires a certain skillset that is not taught to many. The tricks of the trade picked up along the way in SEO and Internet Marketing come from tried and tested methods and strategies that require a lot of time, a lot of manpower and a whole lot of frustration while learning the hard way!

People, please work with an agency that is focused on your ROI. Forget all the fancy talk about “rankings” and “dominating Google” and all of the other ridiculousness that is floating around out there. What matters is how much money is being put back into the business based on the investment. If you’re spending $3,000/month with an Internet Marketing Agency and only making $3,000/month on new clients, what is the point? Seriously?

Just like we do here at WebDesign499, look for an agency that is upfront and honest with you. Brutally honest to be perfectly clear. A transparent and open-book Internet Marketing Agency is always better than working with one that is not.

We understand that start-up businesses and new companies can not always afford the services of WebDesign499. If a company that is new comes to us with a small budget, we will discuss its goals and come up with the best possible plan of attack for the budget it is working with. If we honestly don’t believe your company will “mesh” or work well with us, we honestly tell you so.

Please understand that your monthly spending ability will directly affect and impact your campaign(s). Be very very scared of an Internet Marketing Agency that promises the world and the first position on the search engines for $300/month. Consumer attention and search engine rankings is a very valuable commodity now. Long gone are the days of the phone books and yellow pages. Consumer attention is constantly increasing in cost and competitiveness.

4. Plan on working with the agency for a long time.

Listen up people! Your sales and revenues are not going to shoot through the roof overnight. They aren’t going to explode and money starts overflowing from your A Good Internet Marketing Companybusiness pockets. If an agency is claiming that they are going to rank you overnight or in less than 30 days, they are lying to you! Please hire and work with an Internet Marketing Agency that is willing to be honest with you about the timeframe it requires to climb the search rankings and expose your business. The agency should be completely open and upfront about what to expect when starting an online marketing strategy for your business.

Keep this in mind. You are hiring a company to handle your online growth and exposure because that is what they do for a living! That is what they are experts at! A good agency won’t simply tell you what you want to hear! There are a lot of places out there that will play ear candy with you and tell you this or that to make you sign the dotted line and give them your business. Make sure you trust this agency and are 100% comfortable working with them on a month-to-month basis. This will definitely be a long-term relationship and not an overnight success story. If you’re looking to hire an agency for a couple of months and then kick them to the curb, this industry is probably not for you! WebDesign499 will pass on a client like this every single time! 90% of our clients have been with us for over 1 year already and we are proud of that statistic!

If you can trust that your agency has your best interests in mind, then you found a winning Internet Marketing Agency.

Critical Web Design Mistakes To Avoid

The design of your website is the first thing a visitor comes across. If it is boring and unappealing, then it may just be the last thing the visitor will come across on your website. Putting in mind the importance of your website as a marketing tool, there is need to make it attractive and easily navigable to your online visitors. This will encourage them to keep clicking and flipping through your content.
WebDesign499 Website MistakesResearch has shown that at least 90 percent of the customers will search for products online before making a decision to purchase them. Most of these customers will not tolerate spending their time on a poorly designed website. Ease of access and quality of shared information ranks high in online searches. Our experts at the WebDesign499 takes you through the critical web design mistakes to avoid when coming up with your website.

1) Poor Layout
Designing your website without a proper plan is a critical mistake you should avoid. People visiting your site should be in a position to understand the purpose of your business within seconds. You need to know what appeals to your visitors and their preferred communication tools. A homepage that is confusing and misleading will turn away visitors even before they start accessing your content. The general layout of your website should, therefore, be simple enough to appeal to your customers. It should also have a clear plan with visible content in a centralized location to give customers a quick access to the information they need to know.

2) Complicated graphics
Too much art on your website can easily annoy your visitors giving them reasons to navigate away. It is good to have animations and other interesting features on your website but you also have to remember that today’s internet user is more interested in searching rather than surfing. The cleaner your website is, the more likely it is to receive visitors. Much graphics will also just play a role in slowing down your website which is nondesirable for many customers. It is, therefore, good to keep your graphics as simple as possible.

3) Inapplicable content
Your content needs to be relevant to your business so as to appeal to your readers. Generating new content is good for search optimization but you need to stick to your purpose. Not updating your content is also a grave mistake as readers may easily consider your lack of dedication and turn away from your site. Sticking to your purpose also ensure you only attract the right people to your website. You also want to attract visitors who are interested in your business rather than those who aren’t. There is, therefore, need to keep your website up to date with relevant content.

4) No TOS
The statement on the Terms of Service should be somewhere on your site. It appears on the last page in most cases. This is crucial in protecting your business from litigation. Litigation may be brought against your business as a result of damages caused by the use of your site’s content. This damages may be a result of malicious activities by people not related to your business. Hackers, for instance, can interfere with the general operations of your business. It may not be possible to keep track of all the activities happening on your website and hence the need to have a legal basis to cover you in the case of such malice. A TOS is, therefore, a critical component that must be included in the design of your website.

5) Pop-ups
Pop-ups can be very annoying to your visitors as they have to keep opening multiple windows and pages as they flip through your website. In fact, Web Design Errors To Avoid WebDesign499most people have enabled pop-up blocking feature on their browsers since most pop-ups are associated with spam activities. You should, therefore, avoid using pop-ups if you want your content to be accessed by your customers.

6) No contact details
As you design your website, ensure you include clear contact details. Putting general contact information rather than specific contacts may deter customers from pursuing further inquiries on any product that interests them. Most customers prefer a specific email address or phone contact. If you have a blog, you also need to link it to your website. This will enable you to get more visitors to your site and maintain contact with them.

Conclusion
A proper design for your website is a key component of the business image portrayed to your customers. Most customers want to access information in a quick and efficient manner. The growth in the business competition also means you have to be up there to attract customers. A poor layout, complicated graphics, irrelevant content, and pop-ups will just keep potential customers away from your business. Not sharing proper contact details will also deny you an opportunity to interact with them and lacking a TOS statement will just open up your business to possible litigations.

All About Google AMP

Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)

Gone are the days when people rushed home to catch the news. Today, you can stay up to speed with the latest news through your phone or tablet. Publishers have taken advantage of this by continuously publishing tablet and phone accessible content because they gain a lot when their audience read their content. They get to earn money through ads shown on their pages as well as grow their online traffic. However, for a long time, publishers have lost numerous ad clients due to slow loading of web pages. Target audiences give up on reading content when the pages fail to load fast. As a result, they do not end up seeing the ads. This makes ad companies to stop advertising on the pages and it is a huge loss for the publishers. Publishers are not the only people facing this problem. Technological companies and other web-based businesses also face this challenge. Many discussions were done with technological companies and publishers and the Google AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) was created to solve the problem. WebDesign499 takes full advantage of the benefits of this wonderful new technology called Accelerated Mobile Pages.

What is Google AMP?

AMP is a project backed up by Google that aims at helping publishers and technology companies to have web pages that load faster than normal on mobile devices. In action, this project is made up of three parts. These include; AMP HTML, AMP JS, and Google AMP cache. The main difference between regular HTML and AMP HTML is the fact that AMP HTML includes the AMP properties. The properties make it possible to come up with very rich content compared to what you would be able to come up with when using HTML. They also give you a more reliable performance. AMP JS is basically responsible for implementing the performance you experience. It does this by managing the loading of resources and giving you all the custom tags that are required in order for you to have a fast and reliable speed. Google AMP Cache gets the AMP HTML pages and caches them and also improves the performance of your pages automatically.

How Does Google AMP Work?

Google AMPAMP was designed to contain a number of optimizations that enable it to make web pages load at faster speed. First and foremost, AMP only allows asynchronous scripts. This is important because it prevents JavaScript from blocking DOM constructions that cause page rendering delay. AMP is also able to statistically size all external source such as ads and images before they are downloaded hence preventing re-layout upon reloading of resources.

Basic Google Submission For Success

When you have finished developing your incredible website, the next step is to share it with the world by submitting it to search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing. After publishing your website for all the world to see, your content may start to show up in Google straightaway. However, for that to happen, you should know that it requires you to do a little bit more than just clicking the “Publish” button. If you don’t know or are not sure of how to submit your site to Google, this article is a good read for you. The paragraphs below will walk you through the things that you need to do so as to get your website added to Google’s listings.

How Does Google Find The Content Of Your Website?

According to Google, the search engine crawls billions of web pages using a large set of computers. The crawler is known as Googlebot, and it basically begins with a list of the URLs of web pages which were generated from the previous crawls and then adding sitemap data to those pages. As the Googlebot is crawling, it looks for new websites, updates or changes to the already existing web pages, as well as any broken links.
Add Site To GoogleIf your sitemap contains some new pages, Google will find them, crawl through the content and then possibly list them (the pages) in the search results basing on its 200 (and more) ranking factors. As soon as the Googlebot has finished crawling, the results are supplied to Google’s index. Any updated content or new websites will get listed accordingly. When the results are being processed, Google inspects the information on your web page, for instance: title tags, alt tags, meta description, and more. If one of your pages contains dynamic content, the crawler may fail to read it, and instead, crawl the default version. You are recommended to optimize your default version for search.
With the help of the Google’s crawler, there may never be a need for you to submit your site because it will automatically be discovered. However, this approach has a disadvantage, and that is, it relies on the timeframe of Google to crawl and index the content of your website, and this may take longer than you would like.

Checking to See If Your Site Is Included in Google’s Listings

If you want to see whether your website is listed in Google, simply start your search with: “Site: Yoursitename.com”. If there isn’t any content that has been indexed yet for your site, Google will inform you that your search didn’t match any results. In such a case, creating a sitemap which can be submitted to Google should be your next step.

The Time It Takes To Index Content

A content marketer and SEO specialist by the name of Casey Henry wondered how long it takes Search Engines to index web content. In order to satisfy his curiosity, he did a test to find out the amount of time that Google & yahoo takes to crawl & index content. From the results, Casey discovered that it took Yahoo and Google 1,773 minutes and 1,375 minutes respectively to just crawl his content.
Alternatively, when he submitted an updated sitemap, he discovered that it took Yahoo and Googlebot 245 minutes and 14 minutes respectively to visit the page. This implies that if you submit an updated sitemap after launching a new site or adding a few web pages, you may be able to start generating traffic as well as conversions on that very same day.

How to Submit Your Website to Google

If you have a new website, before submitting it at http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url, you must first verify your ownership in Google Search Console. On the other hand, if you are updating an existing website with a few new pages, you should update the sitemap so as to make sure that your new content is listed as soon as possible.
To update a sitemap, sign in to Google search console, go to the Crawl tab, and then to Sitemaps. While you are there, submit your updated sitemap so that Google can start crawling it at the earliest possible time.
You may or may not need to submit an updated sitemap whenever you publish a page. If you are dealing with content which is critically important and needs to be indexed within the shortest time possible, it would be best to go through the submission process manually. On the other hand, if you are simply making small corrections or changes to pages, you may wait for Google to crawl those pages and update its index.
