MEMBER TIP
WHY YOU NEED A PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE
By Doug Kelly, 5by5 Design

Do not settle for less when it comes to your website. A professionally designed website helps your business stand out and insures your success. A website is your online business brand. Would you lay the foundation for your new home yourself? Of course not! We would hire a professional to insure that we get the best results possible. A professional designer knows how to make a great first impression, and those are very important, and if your website represents your company in a professional manner you will gain customers that would otherwise be missed or lost.

Professionalism
When hiring a professional designer, not only should they know how to create a beautiful image, but also how to give you the image that's effective for your business. An effective website should be unique, easy on the eyes, be easy to navigate, and load efficiently.
