I’ll admit it, for years I ran my business with a very awful looking do-it-yourself website. As a website content writer, I was pretty embarrassed when potential clients asked to see my own website. My content was good, but the design was very amateur.
In 2013, I finally hired one my of my website designer partners to create a brand new website for me. My graphic designer updated my business cards and in a month I had a website I am proud to own. It was extremely affordable and now it truly represents my brand and level of expertise. And it was so affordable! I wish I had done it years ago.
But my website isn’t just pretty. The search engine optimization (SEO) is outstanding.
Try this: Google your name. If you have an active LinkedIn account, chances are LinkedIn will appear with a higher rank than your own website.
Just two months after my website launched, when I Google “Liz M. Lopez” my website is ranked higher than my LinkedIn profile. I’ve had that URL for years, but it wasn’t really effective until I had the right web design and SEO in place. Now I get l clients from people finding me on the internet.
