Website Design Done Differently

The Outcome You've Wanted

Ever get the feeling that "If you build it, they will come" doesn't necessarily apply? Or at least didn't do as well as you had envisioned. If you've been in business long enough, you've probably had your share of disappointments with companies offering website design in Nashville who seem to over promise and under deliver when it comes to their inbound marketing efforts.

It is completely understandable if you still feel hesitant because of all the hype surrounding marketing. If you've tried working with web designers who don't offer custom website design in Tennessee, you probably discovered one thing. Regardless if they're in Nashville, offer web design in Franklin, Spring Hill, or as far south as Columbia, the canned, off-the-shelf website templates you were attracted to as a quick fix were exposed for their shortcomings. It never delivered your desired outcome.

There is nothing more expensive than a cheap web design that doesn't work.

Now add to that, in 2020 small businesses faced the ultimate challenge to simply survive. But that revealed how much a web designer and development professional was necessary to create a website beyond an online, cookie-cutter brochure in order to remain profitable.

The take away from that was a company's strategy can no longer be doing business exclusively offline with just a peripheral web presence. Businesses that did position themselves with a useful website solution their visitor could benefit from, emerged with a win. Prospects and customers could view, engage and do business online as easily as face to face.

While the big box stores got through it, Small Businesses that didn't adjust, either struggled to survive or failed. This underscores why custom web design is important for your business to be successful.

The website is a tool to get you there. But it is very important to understand its value depends on how much it helps your audience first. So identifying the underlying causes for the symptoms you're experiencing is a crucial first step. Not selling you website services.

Take advantage of a Tennessee web design company that provides a decidedly different approach. One that helps you first identify your actual needs and opportunities via a discovery process before making a recommendation. Based on real world data.

Diving Deeper
Your Best Road Map To Growth

Big Picture Web Design helps service-based businesses figure out the root causes to their online challenges, what their prospects value most, revealing your actual needs and opportunities. Then create better solutions that connect with the audience. It's about taking a comprehensive look at how each part of your inbound marketing strategy will fit together so that we can create an integrated approach that achieves a successful outcome. User focused. It's all about your audience.

When it comes down to it, We're doing the due diligence work for you. You'll have the best road map to growth defined by an in-depth discovery done with you and on your behalf. Discovery validates your online efforts, revealing a path forward. Confirming what is believed to be true or reveals what is true by investigation or audit of a potential online endeavor. To confirm all facts or uncover new risks and opportunities not yet known. That becomes the basis for a proposed website solution that is user focused and delivers high value to your audience.

Creating a site without doing discovery would be like a Doctor writing a prescription without a diagnosis and would be considered malpractice.

"The Greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge". ~ Daniel J Boorstin

Love Their Problem, Not Your Solution

More often than not, a recurring pattern is those visiting a business website do not see how they benefit. It doesn't align with what they value or help them get what they want - "what's in it for me"? Why?

The vast majority of owners are already emotionally and financially invested in their endeavor. But the prospect is not. They don't care what the owner is invested in. The prospect only cares about their needs. Yet, the goods and services offered are initially based on what the owners want and like, then in some cases assume there is a market for what they like, and try and fit a marketing message that aligns with their objectives, but not what the prospects value. Even if there is a market, the message, product or service needs to align with the prospect.

The question and approach should be, what is your market starving for? The site is for your prospects and customers. So it needs to be created with that in mind. It's about discovering their underlying issues that contribute to each one of your prospect's problems—and then creating online solutions that address them directly.

What Some Web Designers Won't Tell You.
Commodity vs Outcome

Another Nashville web design company may buy an off-the-shelf template and change out the images. Then put your images and content in and sell that to you as a custom site.

The first problem is your business needs to stand out from the other small business sites. That's hard to do when your site is using either the exact same layout or similar to hundreds of others who use the same template. You're hiring a Internet Agency that bought another designer's work and past it off as their own, then mark it up for a profit.

You'll have no problem finding a Tennessee web design company that provides off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all solutions but solely focuses on what is believed to be your broad needs. They're selling the website and services. Not the Outcome you need. That's inferred.

In reality, the catch-all commodity approach doesn't actually know what your specific goals and needs are, doesn't know what your customers really value, doesn't consider your market conditions, competition and doesn't tell you what the best strategies and tactics should be used in your specific situation. Why? Because it assumes designing a website itself is your end game.

How can someone, you never met, who pre-built a template, know in advance what your specific needs and opportunities are?

Now imagine gaining prospect insights that help you communicate your message better.

Clearly understand the digital landscape - competition, strategies, tactics.
