Website Design Done Differently
In 2020 small businesses faced the ultimate challenge. It also was revealing how much a website design and development professional was necessary to create a website beyond an online, cookie-cutter brochure in order to remain profitable.
Many small businesses websites were not able to pivot. A company's strategy was doing business offline with just a peripheral web presence. For businesses that did position themselves with a useful solution, emerged with a win. Prospects and customers could view and engage and do business online as easily as face to face. For businesses that didn't adjust, either struggled to survive or failed. This underscores why custom website design is important for your business to be successful.
No matter what the world throws at you, take advantage of a Tennessee web design company that offers semi and fully custom website design and development, and never miss a beat. You can be sure we go about getting better results with a unique approach that a typical Nashville web design company doesn't take.
You may have even tried working with website designers or a web design agency in Nashville or middle Tennessee - Spring Hill, as far south as Columbia or companies that do web design in Franklin. But the canned, off-the-shelf website templates were quickly exposed for it shortcomings.
- Are you struggling to figure out how to use your website to your advantage?
- Tired of your current website designer's unresponsiveness and you have to do everything to "move the needle"?
- You're starting to realize the limiting constraints of your current online approach.
- Are you tired of trying to figure out marketing strategies on your own that can get you a better outcome?

Always sell what the Market is starving for. Not what you want them to buy.
If you're tired of trying to do this yourself or working with an agency, asking where to hire a website designer only to realize they don't seem to care about your company's success as much as their own bottom line, then this may be the breakthrough you've wanted.
We're not just about designing pretty sites. Big Picture Web Design helps service-based businesses figure out the root causes to their online challenges, what their prospects want, and discover their actual needs and opportunities. Then create better solutions that connect with their 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. Designing a website without doing discovery would be like a Doctor writing a prescription without a diagnosis and would be considered malpractice.
“If you want to sell to John Smith what John Smith buys, then you have to see the world through John Smith's eyes.”
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 and decide to offer goods and services initially based on what the owners want and like, then 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 web site is for your prospects and customers. So it needs to be designed 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.
Other Nashville web design companies may buy an off-the-shelf website design 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 websites. 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. That's not website design. You're hiring a web designer who 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.
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 want, doesn't consider your market, competition and doesn't tell you what the best strategies and tactics should be used in your specific situation. Why? Because it assumes having a website design itself is your end game. How can a pre-built website template know in advance what your specific needs and opportunities are?
Always remember that your talent never limits you. What holds you back is a limited vision of the opportunities that match your talent.
Doing the due diligence of Discovery validates what is believed to be true or reveals what is true by investigation or audit of a potential endeavor. To confirm all facts or uncover new risks and opportunities not yet known. That becomes the basis for a proposed website design solution that is user focused and delivers high value to your audience.
The website is NOT the end game. It's a means to the end game. A tool to be leveraged. If having an Internet design was all we needed, then everybody would be wildly successful.

This ensures the project stays on track. You'll know we're meeting deliverables and milestones. It's a very transparent approach.

No risk to find out more. Set up a time for a phone call. We'll both get a high-level overview of your needs and you'll learn about our approach. If it turns out that we do not have what you need or our conversation goes beyond the scope of what we can do, we will try to recommend someone else for you.
One Nashville Company went through the discovery process and found out that 85% of their phrases were not searched on by their prospects. The company's approach was based on assumptions and they didn't do any keyword research.
False assumptions about your customer, market, competition or seo strategies can create confusion and set up unrealistic expectations.
"The Greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge". ~ Daniel J Boorstin
