As a small, local business owner, the goal isn’t to get people to visit your website. The goal is to get people to come into your store, or call for an appointment.
A website is a marketing tool. So, getting people to your website is about making sure your marketing dollars are well spent.
Good web design begins by asking the questions, “Who is it we want this website to serve?” and “How can we do that?” After studying the Conservancy for a bit, learning about its mandates, what it’s been doing and what it wants to do, I came to realize that there are about five major groups who would benefit from this website.
