Even though the internet has grown into such a powerful marketing tool, there are still some businesses that put very little value into their own website or just don’t understand how to position the site correctly online for what they are offering.

Proper web development has rapidly changed over the past few years, but many of the fundamentals are still the same, but believe me when I say this, very few “web designers” understand anything about how to build a website that performs for a business. Why don’t most web designers know how to develop a site correctly? – Many web designers come from graphic design backgrounds and know next to nothing about business. Unless you can give them very clear instructions on what you want, you are going to miss the boat. Make sure if you are considering hiring a company for web development that they have a strong understanding of marketing principles and understand how your business operates.

The more time you spend enhancing your website for conversion and making it user friendly the better return you will get from any online traffic you are driving to it. Understanding the role of your website is key to successful web development. For most the main goal of their website is to act as a sales tool for their services and products. But your website can do so much more then process leads/orders.

Here is a list of things your website can do if the web development is done properly:

1. Act as a forum for discussion and a resource for consumers.

2. Engage customers and build their interest in your company and product.

3. Collect names and email addresses for interested consumers to build a relationship with.

4. Take those leads and build a database of targets to communicate with.

5. Encourage and partake in sharing information through blogs, social media and RSS feeds. Reach out to people and encourage them to reach back.

Building the number of prospective leads builds the value of your business. Creating a website during the web development stage that's set up to grow your business will benefit you forever. Use your website to share promotions and discounts and pay attention to what works using analytics data. Measure their effectiveness and calculate the income generated from these types of incentives.

When done correctly web development can create an extraordinary tool that will grow your business. Thinking big in the development phase can set the bring success in the future. This all sounds great but it can be complicated for a small to medium sized business to implement on their own. Consider hiring a quality internet marketing company to handle it for you. If you chose the right online marketing company, it will be the best investment you have made in your business in a long time.
