The Keys to a Manageable Website That Doesn’t Suck Up Your Time and Drain Your Pocket

Do you find yourself trapped in a cycle of hiring designers every time you need to make a simple edit to your website? Are you tired of spending exorbitant amounts of money just to keep your website up and running smoothly? I’ve witnessed this struggle far too often – business owners whose websites become a drain on both their time and their wallets. I have the keys to a manageable website that will save you precious time and money in your business, the two things we all crave more of.

You should be able to edit your website yourself

Do you get overwhelmed just knowing you need to make an edit to your website? This is why the platform you build your website on is so important. It should be built on a platform that is easy enough for you to manage on your own. Yes, that’s right – you should have the power to handle basic updates yourself! In this digital age, there are countless website builders vying for your attention, promising drag-and-drop simplicity. However, don’t be fooled by clever marketing tactics. Take the time to evaluate which platform suits your needs best, both in terms of scalability and ease of management. Finding the perfect balance between these two factors may seem challenging, but it’s the key to saving time and money.

Imagine being able to effortlessly edit photos and text on your website without dealing with lines of code or relying on a designer for every little change. That’s the freedom you deserve as a business owner. Of course, there’s a learning curve involved, but the overall process should be straightforward and manageable for you. Don’t let website management become an impossible task – reclaim your independence and take control!

Get the most out of your contact forms

Now, let’s talk about contact forms. Opening your inbox shouldn’t be a daunting task. You certainly don’t need a flood of emails pouring in from various sources on your website, leaving you confused about who needs your help and why. Even worse, imagine having contact forms that seemingly go into a black hole, leaving you wondering if they even reach the right place. Your contact forms are often the first point of contact for potential customers, making them vital to your success.

It’s crucial to know where your contact forms are going and to keep them to a minimum. Develop a strategy to efficiently handle your valuable leads. Simplify your forms, clearly label them, and ensure that when a lead arrives in your inbox, you have all the right questions to assist. Additionally, diligently test and re-test your contact forms to guarantee they’re functioning properly and delivering to the correct inbox. Missing out on potential revenue because messages aren’t reaching your inbox is avoidable! 

Protect yourself from tech-savvy predators 

“I am paying $500 a month to keep my website up, and I don’t know what it is built on, and how to login” My jaw DROPPED, and my heart sank a little, knowing there was a better way that could save this business hundreds of dollars a month. You need to protect yourself from predatory business models that can drain your time and money. It’s essential to have a basic understanding of websites and how they work. Know what platform it is built on, where it is hosted, how to log in, and where the domain name is purchased. This knowledge will protect you from being taken advantage of by exploitive companies charging exorbitant fees. Maybe you are an owner who is paying hundreds per month for website services that should cost a fraction of that amount.
