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 sales, but this will...
You’ve built a solid business, but your current website is outdated and is leaking potential revenue every day. You’re too busy running your business to dive into the technical aspects of website development, so you turn to a web design company. Here’s the problem: most people think rebuilding their website with all the bells and whistles will solve their sales issues. Run a few ads, get traffic, and bingo. I’ve seen businesses confidently set fire to their money doing this. Only to learn that it was a huge and expensive mistake. Here’s why…
Websites & landing pages designed to convert traffic into real sales
Web design companies treat their clients like numbers. 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 $5k-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.

In reality, you need more customers, not more 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.
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.
