    Hi I’m wanting to sell Web development services online and am having a lot of trouble converting the visitors into sales. I’m looking for small business owner who are willing to make a website for their business. I am talking about some great website like http://www.webalive.com.au and they have a pretty good visitors to sake ratio. But my website http://www.supremesupports.com.au isn’t selling at all! My business is based in the Sydney but have no idea how to get more traffic and sales from Sydney region, any help would be very much appreciated.

    well with all the “mail messages/cold calls” i get I am sure no one finds a web dev from their website. and mostly because they get pressured into it from the mountain of calls you get from X or Y tech name. claiming to make you a site cheap and perfect for your customers.

    [USER=114899]@supremesupports[/USER] – I think there are some very good things about your site but for almost every good thing I see, I also see something that doesn’t work.

    Here is an example:

    I was very pleased to see a case study section on the site and some of the way the case study was written was very good – especially the results the business achieved.

    But when I went to the site, the site literally didn’t work – it was very slow loading and when I clicked on a brand name eg, Dulux, the site froze and an unresponsive message came up.

    I snapped a pic for you:

    I believe that you need a marketing and possibly copywriting expert to work with you to bring everything together on the site so that it is a showcase for potential customers to gain confidence in your services.

    Every part of the site needs to build confidence in you amongst potential buyers but equally people have short attention spans so that confidence can easily be un-done and that will kill any prospect of a sale.

    At the same time, for big ticket purchases such as you are selling, you website should be a small part of the sales process so if you expect it to do more for you than is the industry norm, you will have to also look at your overall sales strategy.

    Good luck.

    I would imagine website development is usually about contacts, word of mouth as it is a trust related service much like a tradesman unless you’re looking at cookie cutter low end websites which has to unfortunately compete with the website DIY builders. Why don’t you directly approach a niche of businesses and try to cold sell them?

    A couple of things I noticed about the site needs addressing

    • Navigation
    • Colour Selection

    Cheers

    I hate to say this but how can you promote web development services on line and not know how to get visitors to convert?
    Isn’t the job of a web developer to develop sites that convert visitors?
    You might want to rethink your business and find one that you can compete in.
