Want More Sales and Customers? Don't Hire a Web Design Company

Before you commit to thousands of dollars for a new website, contact me and I'll help you avoid the common pitfalls of hiring a website design company.

Truth is, a fancy website isn't going to get you more customers...

Yes, you heard that right. Most people think that rebuilding their website with all the bells and whistles will solve all their problems. Run a few ads, get traffic, and bingo, you’ll magically get sales. I’ve seen business owners confidently set fire to their money doing this. Only to learn that it was a huge and expensive mistake. Let me save you from pulling your hair out. You see, it’s not all about the design. Have you ever seen a multi-million dollar ClickFunnel? Many look like they were built by a 2-year-old. But some have made $100,000,000 in less than five years, despite their sh!tty designs. So, before you go ahead and hire a push web design company, hire a web design consultant first who’ll save your business thousands of dollars in costly website mistakes.


I'm going to shoot you straight... you need more customers, not website traffic

You don’t have a traffic problem. You have a conversion problem. I mean, let’s be real. There’s no shortage of people browsing the internet (over 40,000 searches on Google every SECOND). There will ALWAYS be customers ready to pounce on a good offer. But that’s the kicker — it needs to be good. If what you’re offering is too confusing, or you’re trying to ask for the sale without building up credibility, social proof and using psychological biases in your content, it’s not going to work. You need a 24/7 sales machine that doesn’t take sick days, holidays, or compassionate leave. It sells while you sleep. Sounds easy, right? But it takes a lot of strategy and understanding of your target persona. Many business owners don’t do this because it’s boring and dry. That’s where a web design consultant comes in. They can help you completely revamp your website to attract sales.

Don't let them sink their talons into you. Web design company sales reps are like vampires

And their number one motive is to reach into your pockets. I know, it’s a little cynical to say. But it’s not unfounded. You see, it’s not my first rodeo. 

I’ve been in this game for 7+ years. I’ve worked alongside some of the largest ad agencies on the planet. And as an experienced web design consultant, I’ve never seen a single web design firm that offers clients tangible ways to make sales with the websites they build for them.

Web design companies rush through projects because they’re focused on profit. Worse, they convince you their mediocre work is worth over $5-100k, leaving you feeling frustrated because you’re left with a website that doesn’t bring you sales. 

Save yourself the stress by hiring a web design consultant first.

Get More Leads & Sales

I'm a little different from your typical freelance web designer. As I'm an award-winning digital marketer, I can build your website so that it converts more clicks into customers by offering proven strategies that actually work in literally hundreds of niches.

Have 100% Built-In SEO

Most clients assume that a web development company handles everything - including SEO. But it's not true. 9/10 web designers will NOT include SEO best-practices in their web builds. Most don't even know where to start. All of the websites I build have on-page SEO.

Get All Content Written

I started my career in Journalism. Having worked for the Australia times for two years, I ventured off into my newfound passion - marketing. All of the websites I build come with done-for-you copywriting. This kind of service isn't offered by web design companies... like ever.

Most-asked web design consultation questions

Websites are the lifeblood of modern businesses. Yet many companies leave it in the hands of amateur web design companies that call themselves “experts”. To prevent this, always seek out a freelance web design consultant first. The benefit of hiring an experienced web design consultant is that they design based on improving your conversion rate. Meaning more sales, booked appointments, and quote requests. They do this by turning stale traffic into profitable customers with copywriting techniques, SEO optimisation, and conversion rate optimisation.

This really depends on your business type. If you’re an ecommerce brand, it’ll depend on the number of products you have and the research required for copywriting and keyword research. Ecommerce websites can take approximately 4-8 sessions on average (full 8-hour days), whereas service businesses can be even shorter. Although design is a subjective thing, I build websites based on proven marketing science (a.k.a. conversion rate optimisation). Depending on the content involved, it can take 2-4 sessions on average for most service-based businesses.

Yes! That’s a great question. Most web designers and web design consultants will NOT write the content for you. But I’m a rare breed in this space because of my skills as an award-winning digital marketer. I’ll make sure your website is designed strategically from scratch, with content that has actually been written by me.

Unlike web design companies that charge you flat fees, web design consultants usually charge hourly. I myself work on websites on an hourly basis. The reason for this is to help you get the most of out your project with me. I understand there’s so many web design projects out there, so I’m not the greedy type to say that it’ll be some superficial guessed price based on my feelings at the time (which is what a lot of consultants actually do).

If you’re looking for a web designer in Sydney or Melbourne, you could probably find someone more local by typing “near me”. I’m based in the Gold Coast, but the good news is that I help businesses around the world from my home office. That includes Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, the rest of Australia, and the world.

You're only a few clicks away from more leads, sales, and customers.
