Google research on local search behavior reveals that local searchers are poised to take action. According to their findings, “50% of consumers who conducted a local search on their smartphone visited a store within a day, and 34% who searched on computer/tablet did the same.” This means ranking in local search has a direct impact on in-store traffic. When your customers perform an online search for the name, address, phone number, or any other relevant local data about your company, how do you rank?
Professional photography is a critical investment, and it is one that will separate you from your competitors. When your customers visit your website, it is an opportunity for them to get to know you better. Professional photographs will also help with your overall website design, visitor engagement, and customer conversions. The small investment required for professional photos will be forgotten as you realize the residual impact the images have on your bottom line.
Video rules the web today. According to Mist Media, the average Internet user spends 88% more time on a website with video. Advancements in technology have provided limitless opportunities for video production, and web users have proven that videos do not have to be professional masterpieces to be consumed. If you are ready to take your web marketing to the next level, a video is the best place to start.
The aesthetics of web design are important. However, it is pointless to have an attractive website if people cannot find it. Perhaps the largest sin of most web development firms does not involve SEO from the start of the project. When SEO is an after-thought, companies may have a beautiful website, but they will lose the most important battle of all -- the battle for search rankings. Don't lose what you have worked so hard to build with your business. Make sure you are ranking in search for the valuable and relevant services and products your company offers.
Jared, Andy, and the BlinkJar team were a pleasure to work with in building our new website! They took the time to understand our business and our goals and crafted a fresh, clean design that boldly tells our story and functions for our needs. Our new website is now a great marketing and engagement tool that allows us to enhance our relationships with LSU alumni across the country! Blink Jar is responsive, creative, and knowledgeable and we are grateful to have them as an extension of our marketing team.
Excellent partner to complement our communication strategy- totally worth the investment! Our website was in need of a face lift in order to engage our statewide member based organization. The team of professionals at Blinkjar evaluated who we were and what we were about and made the design and functionality changes to help us better connect with more of our members and increase traffic. The team is great on responsiveness and follow through and we've seen the difference the partnership has made for our organization through the analytics and tracking.
BlinkJar has done a wonderful job on reinventing my website to make it new, fresh, organic, and inviting for my patients and prospective patients. Everyone at BlinkJar is GREAT to work with on changes and added services. I can email or text at any time of the day and always get a speedy response. They even help create blogs and social media content. I really don’t know how they are able to do all the amazing things that they do for me. They make me feel like I am their only client. Would highly recommend them but I really want to keep them as my little secret :-)
We worked with BlinkJar Media in developing our new website and the handling of all of our marketing needs. They have been exceptional; from working with our budget in website development to meeting the needs of our customers in promoting our products. They are a hands-on company that truly cares about our success! We highly recommend Blinkjar Media to anyone in need of website development services.
Responsive design is a web design philosophy aimed at building websites that "respond" to the device they're viewed on. This means no poor user-experiences like a paired-down mobile site, or zooming in to view small desktop-rendered elements. Instead, your site's design and layout will gracefully shift to suit your screen, whether you're on a phone, tablet, or laptop.
We're a team of designers, developers, marketers, writers, SEO-experts, and more. We live and breathe the modern web every day, and we have years of experience with managing web projects for clients in a variety of fields.
Absolutely. What's the use of a beautiful new website if you can't be found? It only becomes more crucial over time that you set yourself and your business apart on search engines.
Most websites will take about 8-12 weeks in design and development. During this time, we do lots of quality testing and regularly send previews to make sure we're building the website you envision.
We want you to love your website. Part of quality assurance means being available after a website launch for working out any unforeseen changes or issues. It's also important to us that you feel comfortable with managing your site, so we're happy to give tutorials before we hand it off to you.
