This is an interesting business! If you're a traditional local business, you might miss the simplicity of just listing in the Yellow pages. The rules were simple. You named your business beginning with the letter "A". Or two A's. A-Abel! You bought 1/4 page, 1/2 page and full page ads and they were not cheap. Well, now that the Yellow Pages have become nothing short of a door stop and the web has basically taken their place, it's not so simple.
We get it! You just want the phone to ring!
In many ways, you're looking in the mirror. We are a local business dealing with the same challenges of most businesses who depend on a local market. We eat at the same restaurants, shop at the same stores and probably talk to a lot of the same people and businesses that you and your company deal with. Our office is right down the street from your business. There's a Starbucks logo on the entry. 50Bubbles only does business face to face. We prefer to meet you on your turf.
50Bubbles was founded to serve the same small business community of which we are a part. In 2004, the owner left a huge corporation to start his own web design business. To get up and running as quickly as possible, the company was established as a WSI franchise. It didn't take long to realize that clients needed web marketing...not some guy or company who could build a web page. The big mistake clients were making was assuming the web design company understood web marketing. Nothing could be further from the truth. Web designers and programmers know where to put keywords on a website. What is missing is how that website gains exposure in the internet community and how the site turns visitors into customers. Marketing factors influencing your traffic and conversions are something most web developers care very little about.
And the web marketing landscape is still changing...so fast that our clients can't keep up! Good web design converts visitors into customers. That takes a LOT of skill. Beyond the visual, there is lead capture and lead nurturing, content management, content marketing, social interaction, internet advertising, web communications, mobile websites, mobile marketing and more. Every client of ours has a strategy specific to his market.
At the end of the day, our clients want more customers. We deliver customers via effective web marketing.
