In 2022, a business website is no longer a novelty – it’s a necessity.  If you want your business to be competitive in 2022, you will need a website that outperforms your competitors in user experience, search engine optimization (SEO), and conversion rate optimization.

Businesses throughout Malaysia and Singapore have already digitized their business during the covid pandemic which made today’s internet a highly competitive environment.

E-commerce giants such as Lazada, Rakuten, and Shopee helped to persuade consumers in Malaysia and Singapore to adopt e-commerce on a daily basis.  Internet users have become accustomed to visiting quality websites.

Website builders such as Shopify, WordPress, and Wix have made it easy for many people and companies to build their own websites without the help of a professional web designer.

While building your own “business” or eCommerce website might sound like a great idea.  You have to weigh the pros and cons of using an easy to use website builder.

Your company’s website presence is your online storefront. How many people do their own renovation for their shop lot?  Then why build your own website for your business?

Converting website visitors into paying customers will need a special understanding called customer-centric web design.  A customer-centric design will focus on your potential customers, which will lead to more conversions/sales and a lower marketing cost.

The money you save by using a DIY website builder will pale in comparision to the marketing savings you will recieve when you hire a professional web design company.

The importance of web design

Web design has become so important, in fact, that it can even make or break your business. If you’ve got a poorly designed website, there’s a good chance that you’re not going to be getting the kind of traffic and engagement that you want.

Most businesses will use paid advertising for their products and services.  They will send their advertising traffic to their website.  A professional web design company can significantly increase your websites conversion rate.

A small increase in conversion rate from say 2% to 4% can effectively double your advertising results. So spending a little more with a professional website designer, could save you a ton of money in online advertising.

This is why it’s so important for businesses to have their web design created by professionals who are experienced in user design and digital marketing. When you have your business focused on the right things, you’ll see more website visitors and increased sales.

How to choose a good web design company?

People often ask us how to choose a good web design company. There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a good web design company. Here are some questions to help you make the best decision possible:

What is your budget?
– Are you working with a marketing agency or are you going solo?
– Is this for your business or personal site?
– Where will you host your site?

A good website design company will take the time to understand your business goals.  They will also research your products/services to learn why your products and services are better than your competitors.

They will help to create a unique selling proposition (UPS), that turns web visitors into customers. A good web design company will also be available to train you and your staff on web maintenance.

Small Business Owner

Focus on your business plans

A web design company should help to open new doors by exposing your business to the latest trends in web design and digital marketing.  They are professionals and should be aware of the latest technologies and apply them to your website.

They should have a good track record of helping to build a company’s presence online. Their websites should not only look good, but perform in both organic search and sale conversions.

Search Engine Optimization and Google AdWords is expensive!  The money you save with a low budget website will pale in comparison to the extra money your have to spend on marketing a low quality website.

A Web Design Company will Save you Money

The two biggest hurdles for most businesses when it comes to getting a website up and running are time and money. Generally, if you’re an entrepreneur or a small business owner, you don’t have the budget for a custom, high-end website design.

But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have an attractive, professional-looking site. That’s where web design companies come in.

A web design company can help you get your site up quickly and with a limited budget (most good web design companies charge between RM1,000 and RM 5,000 to build a professional website).  Check out our web design package prices.

Hiring a web design company will save you time, money, and frustration. If you decide to take on the project yourself, you’re heading down a long and expensive road.

I can remember when I built my first website back in the day. I had no idea what I was doing, but I managed to learn enough to get it done. What I didn’t realize at the time was that it cost me much more money than if I would have just hired someone!
