Website Design vs build you own

Mary Ann Ursua Wilkins - Friday, January 26, 2018


Website designer, website designer TX website developer Texas website development in Texas website development website designer TexasThis blog speaks about the relationship between professional website development, those build your own website companies and how they relate to Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  As a website designer and SEO marketing specialist my education is never ending so I am constantly reading and studying.  I recently picked up a book off of Amazon called "How to get on the first page of Google, the beginners guide" by Shawn R. Ward.  I am very impressed with this book and feel compelled to share the information within and my perspective of that information.   

Do It Yourself Website design

Chapter 1 of this book is right up my alley with what I am constantly telling potential clients when they call to ask about the difference between develop business websites vs. the easy Do It Yourself (DIY) website development that a person can build at places like Wix.com, GoDaddy, Vista print, Yola and others.  To begin with this "DIY" website development is made to look so easy on the commercials.  Just drag and drop and voila! you have a website.  Seriously folks it never works like the commercial says it will.  

Last year I had an old friend call me on the phone.  I had not seen her since high school (1978).  She has her own business and her competition was crushing her and she can no longer rely on the usual customers.  She had to upgrade into the 21st century and get a website.  I was happy to hear from her and and remembering the 1970's and how smoking hot she looked in those hip hugger bell bottom jeans with her tie dyed T shirt, I had decided that she was going to get my full attention.  She told me her tale of woe working with Wix.com.  How she has been racking her brain trying to get this easy to use DIY system to work as it is advertised.  I told her that she need not worry, I will take care of her.  She just needs to go through my list of 80+ custom websites for business that have been professionally built by me and pick one.  I will then change the images, text, logo and contact information and Voila! she has her professionally built custom website development.  I went on to tell her about the additional benefits her website would get from my company as apposed to any of the DIY website builders.  She would get 10,000 to 20,000 professional email campaigns, a blog, 10 email addresses unlimited email, hosting all included in the low price.  She said that the DIY website builder was going to charge her for each of these items, raising the price well above that which I am charging.  

 

DIY website builders vs Professional websites.

What these DIY website companies do not tell you is this, yes it is very easy to build a custom website for business, if you are Website designer, website designer TX website developer Texas website development in Texas website development website designer Texas website designer located in Texas or San Antonioalready skilled in website development!  If this sounds like a trap it is.  So once you have completed this easy to build yourself website (for those that can actually complete it) what you have is not custom website development, instead you have a poorly designed website that is difficult to navigate and will very likely chase away more customers than it will bring in.  Lets look at this another way.  Each custom website for business is basically the front line sales person.  It is the first contact between your company and a new or existing client.  If your website is poorly designed, unappealing to the eye and difficult to navigate it is as if your sales person has pulled up to a sales meeting in a 1978 AMC pacer that smokes, coughs and pollutes the air.  Unless what you are selling is old AMC pacer, you are going to loose every sale.  What you want to drive to a sales meeting in is a nice new Cadillac or Lincoln and dressed to impress.  Yes, the professionally built websites from Wilkins Websites are the Cadillacs and Lincolns.

Inexpensive SEO, can you afford it?

Mary Ann Ursua Wilkins - Thursday, January 11, 2018

seo services online, seo marketing service, seo marketing, seo prices, seo price list, best seoWhat do I mean when I refer to "Inexpensive SEO services online"?  SEO is Search Engine OptimizationSEO marketing service is the service provided by a reputable SEO company that can place your website high in the search engine result page or (S.E.R.P.).   There are 2 completely separate industries of SEO companies and 2 separate SEO price lists.  The first of which is the legitimate SEO company that work tirelessly everyday to place your website URL high in the S.E.R.P. so that you can be found on the internet search engines such as Google, Bing/Yahoo.  Lets face it, if you can not be found, your company is basically INVISIBLE.  The second type of SEO company is the inexpensive SEO marketing service that you find on sites promoting overseas IT support and  also some American companies.  An American Company?  Yes. 

American SEO Scam

I received a  phone call from a company right here in San Antonio TX.  He offered to get my website placed on the first page of google for a cheap SEO cost.  It seems that if he had done his homework he would know that my company also offers SEO to small business, but I am always searching for additional SEO marketing specialists so I gave him a quick interview.   I was working at my computer at that moment so I asked for his domain name or URL.  I pulled up his website then quickly checked his website ranking.  His website was ranked at over 15,000,000 in the world, this is not good.  I was polite when I compared my website ranking to his.  I said "For a company that specializes in SEO, you are ranked kind of high at over 15,000,000".  He replied "what is your website ranking?"  "150,000" I replied.  He hung up the phone.  Keep in mind that the lower your ranking the better.  It is similar to golf, the lowest score wins.  A perfect example is Google is ranked #1, Youtube is #2 and Facebook is #3, so you can see that my score of #150,000 is much closer to the top than his website at #15,000,000.

  This was an American SEO company that was trying to scam me.  If I had hired him, he would have worked for me for 3, 4 or 6 months before I noticed absolutely no increase in website ranking and no placement on the S.E.R.P. for the website I had him working on.  The money my client would have spent would have been wasted and the revenue lost from loosing potential business would have been even greater.  This inexpensive or cheap SEO company is an alternative to the legitimate SEO marketing service mentioned above and is very dangerous.  They take advantage of the fact that it takes several months of legitimate SEO marketing work to show any real progress in increased website ranking and being found high on the search engine result page (S.E.R.P.).  You must trust the SEO company working for you is actually doing the work you are paying them to do, and there is very little you can do to know that they are actually doing proper SEO marketing.  This is exactly how they take advantage of unsuspecting American companies.  By the time you find out that there is absolutely no improvement in your SEO ranking several months have passed.  These American companies have been paying for this SEO marketing service for months before it is found out that the work is not being accomplished or not being done properly.

Overseas SEO  

A few years ago I investigated working with an overseas SEO company, not just one, I tried many, hoping to find legitimate website designer, website designer tx, website developer texas, website development in texas, overseas SEO services online.  I would interview many, hire whom I felt was the best SEO candidate, then after months of paying them, found that the SEO cost was a waste of money.   I would fire this person, then look for another, I never found a legitimate overseas SEO marketing specialist.  It seems that they all began the same way, very humble, saying the right things in the right way.  Luring me into a place of security and confidence that this guy or gal will place my website at the top of Google and my business would sky rocket.  Notice I used the word "Confidence".  Being lured into a feeling of "Security" and "Confidence" is the foundation for the words "Con Man", "Confidence Man" or "Confidence Woman".  I had to face the facts, I had been Con'ed!   

I spent about $10,000.00 over a 2 year period, giving these Con men and Con women opportunities to do what they promised they could do, it was a giant waste of money.  I was certain that I could find the right person, I did not.  Think about it, 2 years trying to get a good SEO specialist from this collection of con men.  What was the lure used to get me into this con?  It was 50 to 1.  What is 50 to 1?  The money transfer from the USA to their country was every dollar I spent, was $50 to them, or every $100.00 was $5,000.00 to them.  While I was paying what they saw as a great deal of money, it was pennies to me.  I fell for the lie that these people were quality professionals that I could hire for literally pennies.  

The lost revenue I suffered in this 2 year period was even greater than the $10K I spent.  While my competitors were being found on the first page of the Google, Bing/Yahoo, I was no where to be found, my company was invisible.  My competitors were getting the business and the revenue from this business while I was getting the Con.  The potential revenue I lost because I was trying to save money was huge.  Basically, the SEO specialist that I could hire for just a few hundred dollars, could I afford this?  The answer is NO.  This was the most expensive inexpensive venture ever conceived. I take full responsibility for this failure. It was my greed that caused me to fail. Lets face it, thats how the con men get you, with your own greed.

The solution

seo company, seo cost, best seo, seo price list, seo pricesSo what did I do about this?  I hired an American born and educated SEO marketing specialist to work for my company full time.  This man has taken my website ranking from 16 million to 127,000 in just 6 months and my ranking continues to climb each day.  My business is now found on the first page of Google, Bing/Yahoo for many of the key phrases we use.  My business is no longer INVISIBLE, it is now COMPETITIVE.  The business that is being generated for me far exceeds the cost of his service, and this is all I ask of my employees, to produce more than it costs to pay them.   I now offer SEO services to other companies in need, knowing that my SEO services online can do for your company what my SEO marketing specialist has done for my company.  I have kept the prices reasonable and affordable by offering different SEO packages, different SEO cost for different levels of SEO marketing.  Notice I said "Reasonable and Affordable, Not INEXPENSIVE or CHEAP". The point I am making here is, by trying to save SEO cost on inexpensive or Cheap SEO services, you will spend far more money in the long run because the money spent is like throwing it out the window, and the revenue lost due to lack of business will be even greater.  I hope you consider my company to service your SEO needs.   My price list is below

Communicating with Google

Mary Ann Ursua Wilkins - Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Communicating with GoogleSEO Marketing Service SEO  Marketing SEO prices SEO price list

 

Have you ever wondered why some people are successful?  How did this person rise to the top when they do not have your skills,  your expertise or experience?  It is because they are great communicators.  This person is a success because he or she has mastered the ability to communicate with others.  This person hears what other people are saying, he or she understands it and responds in a manner that is heard and understood by the other person.  People find this person easy to work with so deals are struck, goals are accomplished and money is made, this is why this person is successful. Steve Jobs was such a person.  SEO marketing, Search Engine Optimization, SEO services online, Search Engine Optimization or "SEO" is basically communication between your website and people on the internet.  A person communicates with the search engine by typing in a word or phrase, and the search engine then communicates with websites that have relevant information that relates to what the person has asked.  

Your website appearance also communicates a lot, both negative and positive.   Lets use an example of people and clothing.  When someone is going for a job interview, they will very likely wear a suit.  When I was a young man it was proper to wear a blue suit, a white shirt and a red tie to an interview.  The colors Red, White and Blue communicated conformity or cooperation.  I appeared to be someone that can follow instructions and work well with others.  When I wore this suit and combination of colors I was always offered the job.  I would reply, "I thank you very much, may I get back to you next week with my answer?" Certified Veteran Owned business, Wilkins Websites Specializing in Website  Design, Website leasing, You see I had other interviews that might produce better pay and work conditions so I did not want to just take the first offer.   I have no idea if this is still a practice or not, but this was proper communication using appearance 30 years ago.  Here is an example from today's society.  If someone were to go to a police station to apply to become a member of the police force, he or she would not show up wearing gang colors and face tattoo's.  This would communicate to the desk sergeant that this person would not be a good cop.  How your website is set up, or its appearance is important as well. If your website is difficult to manage or navigate, it is not communicating properly with people that are searching the internet.

Now that I have communicated to you the importance of proper communication with search engines and communication with people through appearance, lets get a bit more technical, (Not too technical).  develop business websites San Antonio Websites that are successful have mastered communication with the search engines which is Search Engine Optimization or SEO.  These websites were likely created by a company that creates custom websites for business.  Wilkins Websites is a Website designer located in San Antonio Texas.  We are a Certified Veteran Owned Business. We create Custom Websites for Business.  Our websites are rewarded with high website rankings, a large amount of backlinks, are found on the first page of the search engine result page (S.E.R.P.) and have a great deal of website traffic.  So how do our websites communicate with Google, Bing/Yahoo so that our clients may have these things?  We are also a good Search Engine Optimization (S.E.O.) specialist as well as Website Designer.  Our Custom Website Development is created hand in hand with our SEO team.  We understand that SEO is not just a "one time set up and your are good" thing.  SEO is a constant battle.  It is quite possibly the most competitive business out there today.  

When your website development is complete, we have made sure it is pleasing to the eye and easy to navigate.  Then we register your website with the search engines like Google Bing/Yahoo.  For instance in Google, there is an area called Webmaster Tools Search Console.  Here we put in your website address or (URL).  Google will give us a short piece of code to place in the head tag of your website code.  It looks a little like this, <head>code google gives you goes here</head>, then we test.  Google then "Fetch's" your website, (their words not mine).  Google will then communicate with your website.  Next you choose times of day when it is best for google to "Crawl" your website (again their word not mine).  After that you must submit a "Site Map".  A Site Map is basically a page that has all of your website pages and links.  When all of this is complete, Google will then communicate with your website and "Crawl" your website and read it to find out what it has to say, what information does it have and then it logs this information into its algorithm.  When someone communicates with Google a search engine query like "Can I take advantage of Website Leasing instead of Website Design?"  Because Google has "Crawled" WilkinsWebsites.com its algorithm knows that Wilkins Websites is a Website Designer located in San Antonio Texas that has Website Leasing as well as Website Design.  If WilkinsWebsites.com has what Google refers to as "Relevant Content" to the query or question then this website is listed in the Search Engine Result Page (S.E.R.P.).   How high in the list of website design companies will depend upon how well written my content is, or does my website have "Relevant Content" and is the question answered with my website.  

There is so much more to SEO than this, but this answers the basic questions most people have, "What is SEO?" and "How does it work?".  If you are unhappy with your current SEO Marketing team because they are just not producing the results they promised, or you do not have an SEO specialist at all, feel free to give us a call or send us an email.  We are happy to help.  We look forward to hearing from you.  Our SEO price list is below.  Thank you
