PJ Cook has been a Web Designer for over 15 yrs! I have worked and learned from some of the most talented folks in the industry. I am also a avid Photographer who "went Pro" 5 yrs ago when numerous friends convinced me I have an "eye" for cool photography (and winning a few world-wide photo contests). It is my passion! I work with a digital cameras and don't put a limit on the number of images taken for you. You get every image I capture on a CD/DVD. By The Way, all photography is INCLUDED in my Web Site fees so you never have to worry about someone suing you for rights on a photo (because they are yours)!
If your website is out of date and no longer working the way you need it to, then having your website redesigned is the answer. Websites need continuous refinement and improvement to not only keep your ranking high on the various search engines but to keep your visitors coming back. Browse through the Internet for a few minutes and you will discover numerous websites that look old and obsolete. There are many reasons for website redesign (New Location, Partner has changed, new line of business...), some of them not as obvious but they are at the core of the site.
Image IS Everything!
Doing business on the Internet is no different than doing business in "real life"... image is EVERYTHING! Don't allow your website to make an unfavorable first impression. It is no longer simply good enough to have a website. Your website must capture the visitor's attention, have new information, and engage the visitor, or as quickly as they came they will be off to your competitors website.
I believe you can still accomplish these goals without
you doing the work. You're busy enough as it is. Why spend your
valuable time trying to figure out how to use the software that came
with your website 'package', or worse yet, pay someone else in your
office to handle it for you? You need to concentrate on "What
you do" and leave the web design/maintenance to someone who can do
it quickly, efficiently, and at low cost. It just makes sense!
Many times you will find that the expensive software or 'state-of-the-art' wed design technology you purchased really boils down to the company walking away from your project, looking just like everyone else sites (because they used templates) and more work for you in the end. You are taking time away from what is really important: taking care of your customers.
