There are TONS of website design companies out there. Some build on WordPress, some build on their own proprietary systems, while others use Joomla or Drupal—and, yes, some still build static websites that don't sit on a content management system (CMS).
Here at TMR Direct, we believe in a couple of things when it comes to website design:
Some days it feels like the web is changing at the speed of light—but that's not really a good reason to redesign your website, is it? Well, maybe it is! Since there are a few categories of websites today, let’s first identify where you are!
Static website - only a webmaster or web designer can make changes to your website
Flash website - same as a static website, but isn't being found by search engines
Website on a CMS - your website was designed on a content management system, but you're still pretty limited in your ability to make changes. You can only edit a few areas of the site.
Website on a robust CMS - your site was built on something like WordPress where you can add and edit pages, upload photos and videos and you have a blog.
Website on a Robust CMS and connected to a Marketing Toolset - same as above, plus you are actively working with integrated marketing tools to grow your website's value.
So...where do you stand? If you're in any of the first three categories, it's time to upgrade. You won't be able to grow your business through your website with these setups.
If you're in the fourth category, you may be looking for a fresh design or to integrate with a marketing tool set. It probably makes sense to chat about your goals—schedule a 30-minute website evaluation now .
If you're in the final category, you're in good shape but might be struggling to get the most value out of the system. We should steer our conversation toward inbound marketing rather than just website design. Schedule an inbound marketing evaluation now .
