A few years ago, having a website meant that your company was on the cutting edge. Now, it is almost necessary if you want your company to be relevant to millennials (people in their 20s and younger). Not convinced? Ask a 25-year-old near you how often they use a phone book versus looking up a number online. How many subscribe to newspapers or listen to local radio, versus online media? What is even more crucial is having a website with the performance to compete with all of the other websites out there. How does Cross City Creations provide that?
The Power of WordPress
According to a survey conducted by W3Techs (see link), over 25% of all websites use WordPress, a powerful content management system (CMS). What does this mean? Aside from its primary use in blogging, WordPress can be used to create ecommerce websites with many products and options, including shopping carts and credit card integration. There are thousands of plugins available to add functionality for nearly endless possible requirements, and a well-designed WordPress site is future-proof. Designs can easily be tweaked and reworked, even from the ground up, without affecting the content of the site (text, products, images, etc.).
Performance Through Search Engine Optimization
What good is performance if no one knows about it? That is why another service included with a Cross City web design is optimizing your website for higher ranking in search engines like Google, Bing, or Yahoo. Great care is put into the wording of pages, titles, and even the data stored in image files, to ensure that customers are able to find your website. This includes location services! When someone from Corinth or another North Mississippi area searches the web for a business in your field, you can be sure that you’ll be near (or at!) the top of their list.
