The Best Web Design

Seattle Has to Offer

Seattle is the land of milk and honey for many businesses.

Perhaps that’s why Forbes ranked it as the top U.S. city for businesses in 2018, and even now, several years later, the city is still a thriving tech hub. Of course, tech isn’t the only thing that Seattle has going for it. The home of grunge culture also has a thriving community of local and small companies, all trying to reach their business goals.

Lead generation. More sales. Growth.

These are all things your small business wants, and they’re things you’re not going to get without the help of a web designer. Why? A web design firm can do something that your business sorely needs – get you online so you’re in front of the 63% of people who jump online to learn about products before they make a buying decision.

So, you need a web design company in your corner. With NEWMEDIA, you get a web designer and web developer in one package that’ll help you get your business online and create the growth you need to take Seattle by storm.

What Do the Best Web Designers

Do for Your Business?

That all sounds great, right? Working with a web design business to craft your site creates more leads and nets you more sales. But you need more than that assertion. Even though you believe that quality web designing can do those things, you need to know how it will do them for you before you put down your company’s hard-earned money with an agency.

We get it.

And we’re going to explain the crucial role that top web designers can play in your business development.

Wow People From the Moment They Land on Your Site

Anybody can build a website using the off-the-shelf tools that are all over the web. You’ve seen them advertised before. Come to a so-and-so provider and create websites for free using templates and drag-and-drop methodology. Quick. Easy. Cheap.

And terrible for companies that want to actually get ahead in the online game.

The problem with these sites is also their main selling point – building from a template.

That makes the job of your in-house web development team (i.e., the intern you’ve assigned to create your website) easy. But it also means that your site can never make a great first impression on somebody who visits because it’ll look just like numerous projects that have also used the exact template you chose.

Why does that matter?

Because first impressions matter:

website design stats first impression

Two stats – it takes half a second for somebody to form a first impression of your site and 94% of that first impression comes from the site’s design.

One message (and it’s in the image) – website design matters a lot.

You need to go with professional services to build your website because it’s these services that build a site that’s capable of wowing people from the first glance. You need that wow factor to intrigue visitors into sticking around and checking out more of your website. Templates can’t deliver that wow factor. They just get you online, with no thought put into keeping the people who visit the templated site around.

Keep Your Bounce Rate Low (And Visitors on Your Website Longer)

We talked about keeping people around long enough for them to figure out what you do and (hopefully) send an inquiry your way.

Making a great first impression is part of that – think sticking around for a date because your other half looks the part – but it’s not everything. Once somebody’s judged your digital book by its cover, they’re going to start exploring your website. If they don’t like what they see from there, they’re going to do one thing:

Bounce.

That’s the term your web development agency will use to describe people who land on a website and leave soon after. They “bounce” away, often never to return:

website design stats first impression

This chart highlights the bounce rates for different types of websites, and if there’s one thing you can take away from this chart, it’s that a lot of people bounce. E-commerce websites see up to 45% of their visitors leave, often never to return, with B2B websites having bounce rates as high as 55%.

Why does this matter?

If people bounce, you can’t sell to them. You get no leads, so your site can’t become the sales powerhouse you need it to be for your Seattle business. And here’s where website design comes in – a good-looking site that makes it easy for people to find what they need from you and reduces your bounce rate. Visitors stick around longer. You get more chances to sell.

Creative Solutions Navigational Issues

“Makes it easy for people to find what they need from you.”

If you’re paying attention, that little phrase from our discussion about bouncing will stick out to you. And it’ll make sense – customers love convenience. The easier you can make it for them to buy, the fewer “sticking points” they’ll hit, resulting in more sales.

In web design, that ease starts with your site’s navigational structure. And if you’re not making it easy for people to find what they want, they’re going to leave and never return:

website design stats first impression

There are a few stats here that highlight the importance of good web design. Take the one about 38.5% of people leaving if they think your site is outdated – that’s over a third of your potential business flushed down the toilet because your website doesn’t look great. But it’s the one about navigation that takes the cake for us.

If people can’t find their way around your website, 61.5% of them (nearly two-thirds) leave.

You don’t get a second chance. You don’t get to talk to them. They just leave, becoming a number in your analytics and nothing more to your business.

Now, navigation isn’t much of an issue if you only have a five-page website that’s easy to move around. But think about the struggles of the average e-commerce seller who may have hundreds of products or the content-based website that has literally thousands of articles. Those sites need (and we mean need) to make it easy for both desktop and mobile users to move around to keep those visitors on-site and primed to buy.

Quality website development and design make that happen by creating the user experience these visitors expect.

Aid You in Brand Identity Development

Let’s move into something that’s likely a major target for your business – brand development.

Why do we say that’s likely a major target? The stats tell us that it is:

website design stats first impression

This chart from Smart Insights lays the desire for great branding out in the open. A staggering 70% of marketers involved in social media say it’s one of their top priorities, with 46% saying that growing their brand’s audience is right up there.

Branding matters.

It’s how people identify you and, ultimately, grow to trust your Seattle business.

Now, imagine this scenario – you’ve put out a ton of marketing literature and decided to build a website. The site is functional, and it looks decent, but it doesn’t match the branding you’ve used for the rest of your marketing. The colors aren’t quite right, and the language is a little different. But it’s “good enough,” so you launch the site.

That site has a high bounce rate.

The reason – a lack of consistency. You can’t create a brand identity if that identity shifts between each piece of marketing material you put out. Your business isn’t a shapeshifter. It can’t just change its looks on the fly and expect people to keep track. Your customers (especially the new ones) often rely on your branding to identify who you are so they know they’re dealing with the right people.

Any confusion you create (such as confusion that stems from different branding between websites and other marketing efforts) is a barrier to building the trust your customers need to have in your business. Web developers and designers who know that marketing needs to start with consistent branding and build websites that your customers can trust.

Launch You Ahead of Other Local Businesses

It’s fair to say we’re living in a digital age, right?

You have a device in your pocket that can access everything the internet has to offer. And most people, when they decide they need to find a thing, go straight to a Google search to get it. That’s not going to stop. The “old” ways of doing business – physical marketing, call centers, and broadcast advertising – still exist, but there’s a major digital component at play when millions of people rely on the web to learn about businesses.

And yet, despite digital being so dominant, a huge chunk of small businesses still didn’t have websites in 2022:

website design stats first impression

We could spend pages talking about the reasons (excuses?) why. Too expensive. Don’t think you need one. Blah blah blah. But the fact is that 27% of local businesses don’t have websites in an era where Google alone processes 8.5 billion searches per day.

That’s bad news for 27% of businesses – the thousands of potential customers who are looking for them online aren’t going to find them.

But it’s an opportunity for your business. By simply having a website, you propel your company ahead of about a quarter of your competitors. Just like that! You have a digital presence, and they don’t, so you’re going to get customers that they don’t even know exist.

Web designers help you get a site up and running so you’re not in the 27% of companies that don’t have one. Then, they focus on developing absolutely amazing online experiences so you get a constant stream of new customers while your web-unsavvy competitors get left in the dust.

Our Seattle

Web Design Services

By now, you get why a deep understanding of what makes a great website is as important (if not more so) as having a website in the first place. Any old site won’t do. You need something special, and that’s what NEWMEDIA delivers with these services.

Here’s what we offer

New Website Design

Let’s start with the obvious service – new website design. This is the service for that 27% of Seattle companies that don’t already have something online, and it’s a service that we walk you through from start to finish.

You get a project manager who discusses your goals for the site and pulls from the branding you’ve used in previous projects to design something unique to your business and, crucially, capable of supporting you as you grow.

“Unique to your business” are the keywords here.

NEWMEDIA isn’t a website farm. We don’t churn out sites by the dozen by relying on templates and creating sites that all look the same. We create unique websites. Sites that attract more traffic (and keep it there) because they’re made for your business rather than being templates that can work in various industries.

Website Redesign

Of course, 27% of small businesses not having websites means that 73% of them do – and yours may be one of them. If you’re here, you already have a feeling that you need to update that site (or have it redesigned) entirely because it’s not delivering what you expect it to deliver.

At least, you think it’s your website that’s the problem.

Trust us – it probably is.

We shared some stats earlier that showed you that over 30% of people bounce from websites because of outdated designs. But you’re not out of the woods just because nearly 70% of people stick around a little longer. They’re judging you, and what they see on your site is a reflection of what they’ll get from your business in their eyes:

website design stats first impression

Three-quarters of people say that they judge your Seattle company’s credibility based on its web design.

Let’s crunch the numbers.

You get 1,000 visitors to your outdated website. Straight away, 300 of those visitors leave. They see an old site, and they’re gone forever. Of the remaining 700, 75% of them are casting judgment. That means you’re on the back foot with 525 people who are wondering if they can trust you because you’re old and outdated site is suggesting that they can’t.

So, that’s 825 people who are either gone or have one foot out of the door.

A website redesign that brings you bang up-to-date means far more of those 1,000 visitors stick around and (potentially) become leads.

You get that redesign with NEWMEDIA.

Web Development

Many people conflate web design and web development, thinking that they’re the same thing.

They’re not. Rather, they’re like two sides of the same coin – you can’t have one without the other.

Starting with web design, this is all about how your website looks and feels when somebody’s browsing around. It’s the visual elements – your branding, content, and imagery – and how they all fit together to create an experience that keeps your target audience around.

But on their own, these visual elements don’t do anything. The links in your navigation bar won’t go anywhere. Neither will the forms. And the site will essentially be a picture with no interactivity or working parts at all.

That’s where website development comes in.

Development handles all of the stuff going on behind the scenes that makes your website work. It’s the coding languages that bring the whole thing together, the databases to which your forms deliver details, and the interactive elements that make your website interesting. Without development, the web design process just leaves you with a bunch of pretty pictures that aren’t linked together.

Thankfully, NEWMEDIA does more than just Seattle web design. We develop sites, too, giving you both sides of the coin in one agency.

WordPress Development and WordPress Maintenance

WordPress is the big name in the content management system (CMS) game. And if you don’t believe us, just check out these stats:

website design stats first impression

There are literally hundreds of millions of websites, and 41.4% of them are powered by WordPress. That’s massive. Move over to the other stats and you see that 64.9% of sites that have a CMS (i.e., a behind-the-scenes system for adding, editing, and deleting content) use WordPress.

It’s just that popular.

“But hold on a second,” you say. “I’ve heard of WordPress. It’s one of those tools that can help me build my own website with templates. I thought you said that templates don’t work.”

You’re right on both counts. WordPress does offer templates and templates aren’t ideal for a Seattle business that wants to stand out. But WordPress is also so much more than its templates – it’s a CMS onto which you can place any design you create.

Or, more accurately, that NEWMEDIA creates.

Our work with WordPress isn’t about using its templates. We build unique designs, port them onto a CMS with which you may already be familiar, make sure that CMS has all of the plugins you need to make content management a cinch and maintain that CMS so it’s always working for you.

Responsive Websites and Websites for Mobile Devices

More people use mobile devices (think smartphones and tablet computers) to access your website than laptops and desktop computers.

That’s not opinion – it’s fact:

website design stats first impression

By the end of 2023, about 60% of the traffic your website gets will come from mobile. So, what do you think that means if your site looks terrible on the small screen?

Bouncy bouncy.

People leave (60% of them), and you have a massive loss of potential leads.

NEWMEDIA remedies this with two services: mobile website and responsive website design.

Mobile websites are exactly what they sound like – websites built specifically for mobile devices. They don’t display well on desktops, but they look so good on mobile that you’re guaranteed to keep the 60% of people using smaller devices on board.

As for responsive websites, they’re different beasts. These websites respond to the device the user has, morphing on the spot to display the best version of the site for that device (and even the browser it’s using). You get two in one – a desktop and a mobile site so you have one site that captures both audiences.

Content Management System Implementation and Integration

We’ve touched on what a CMS does when talking about WordPress, so we won’t belabor the point here – it’s software that sits behind your website and allows you to manage the content that the website contains. In real-world usage, that means no coding and no tweaking designs to get content to display properly. The CMS handles that so you can focus on writing words and uploading images.

But WordPress is just one CMS.

Yes, it’s the most popular one around, but it’s far from the only CMS, and it may not be the CMS for your specific business needs. If you fall into that category of companies that don’t want to use WordPress, you have other options – another off-the-shelf CMS or a custom-made one that integrates into your website design to deliver the specific functionalities you need.

NEWMEDIA does both.

If you have a CMS you prefer, we make sure your website works on it. And if you need one built, then don’t fear – our coders can make it happen.

Logo Design and Graphic Design

We talked about brand identity earlier (remember – 70% of marketers say that increasing brand awareness is a major goal). That identity starts with creating consistency. Consumer trust is the flower that sprouts from the consistency seed, and that consistency comes from keeping your logo and graphic designs in check.

NEWMEDIA can do that.

Our graphic designers follow your existing brand guidelines or create new ones for companies that don’t have them. And with those guidelines in place, we handle everything from the smallest of images to full site redesigns.

As for logos – we make them. And we make them well.

Why does that matter?

website design stats first impression

Your logo is key to your brand awareness and identity goals – 75% of people say they rely on a logo to help them identify companies. A boring or, even worse, forgettable logo means your business is like a head without a face. People won’t recognize it.

Let us design you a new logo and you’ll get imagery that the majority of people who rely on logos to identify businesses can instantly recognize.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Having a gorgeous website is a great first step.

But it’s just that – a first step. Without some form of SEO strategy, that site may never reach the people you need it to reach. Remember – 63% of people go online to find out about businesses, and the vast majority of those people head straight to search engines like Google to find them.

Your goal with SEO is simple. Get to the top of the rankings for the keywords that are most relevant to your business. And if you can do that, the results are phenomenal:

website design stats first impression

The first result in Google gets 28.5% of all of the clicks for a search, with the number dropping to a measly 2.5% once you get to the bottom of the first page. For context, imagine that a term gets 1,000 searches per month. Of those searches, the first page on Google gets 285 of the clicks. The 10th? Just 25.

SEO covers all of the digital marketing techniques that make sure your site is in the 28.5% of clicks bracket. Keyword research and implementation. Content creation and optimization. Backlinking (good backlinks only) and all of the technical stuff, like clean code and proper metadata, all go into this SEO soup. And NEWMEDIA are the chefs who make that soup the best in your industry.

Digital Marketing

SEO may be the big hitter in the digital marketing game, but it’s far from the only one. Social media marketing. Email marketing. Paid advertising campaigns. They all combine to form the formidable online strategy that transforms your new website into a lead generation leviathan.

And here’s the best part – when done well, each of these strategies delivers exceptional ROI:

website design stats first impression

First Page Sage lays it out.

SEO delivers 748% ROI, which translates to $7.48 for every dollar you spend. Email marketing is a major money-maker, too, with 261% ROI, and the combined social stats show you that LinkedIn and Facebook are effective ways to get more eyes on your website and more money into your company’s bank account.

Digital marketing isn’t website design – You don’t have to do it to get a great website. But if you want more people to see your new site, you need digital marketing from Seattle’s best digital agency (hint – that’s NEWMEDIA) to maximize your ROI.

Why Our Seattle

Web Design Agency

By now, we’re sure you get it – a Seattle web design agency can make a big difference for your business. The only question left is simple – why NEWMEDIA instead of the dozens of other agencies in the city?

We’ve Worked with Major Brands

Past clients of NEWMEDIA include the YMCA, CBS Television, and Delta Airlines – all leaders in their fields and all massive companies that have trusted NEWMEDIA to create websites and digital marketing strategies for them. Companies of this size won’t trust just anybody. They need to see results, and they need to trust their agencies. The fact that they’ve worked with us shows you that we deliver – and we do it for businesses of any size in Seattle.

Delta Sky Club

The new Delta Sky Club website portal, designed and developed from scratch by NEWMEDIA, allows Delta passengers who go online in any of their Sky Club lounges across the U.S. to quickly get news, weather & stock market information, in addition to tracking flights on any airline (not just Delta!), searching directly in Google, and getting maps and driving directions to/from any address on Earth.

California Almonds

NEWMEDIA Los Angeles, in collaboration with Sterling-Rice Group (SRG), built a new website for the Almond Board of California under an aggressive development timeline. We built a multi-language website for them while ensuring a consistent user experience by bringing all four existing websites into a single universal system. Our team of experts delivered this mammoth project even after the deadline was shortened by four weeks.

Six Flags

The Six Flags team reached out to NEWMEDIA for a complete website redesign and multi-site ecommerce web development. We redesigned the website to change its complete look and feel and organized content into categories and subcategories to simplify content discovery for visitors. Over the course of the project, we worked in close coordination with the Six Flags team to deliver the website quickly before their parks reopened.

PostNet

PostNet approached us to completely redesign all their websites, including those of franchisees. We developed a fresh responsive website for them to offer a consistent browsing experience to visitors irrespective of the screen size of the device they use to access the website. Additionally, we developed a tool to help visitors find their nearest PostNet center. Finally, we designed the 300+ franchise websites for them with local SEO and franchise SEO.

YMCA (The Y)

YMCA (now “The Y”) is an organization that we’ve all heard of and/or been a part of at one time in our lives. YMCA of Metro Denver came to us for a fresh website design that would communicate their mission of being for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Even more exciting, they had just had a brand refresh and this was the chance to support that refresh with a complementary website.

Haystack

When CBS Television was producing the show that came to be called Haystack Help, they needed a complex yet easy to use website application to direct the TV viewers to visit, and their search for a Denver website developer led them to NEWMEDIA. Initially, prior to contacting NEWMEDIA, they had selected another web development partner for the project. Then, there was a problem…

NEWMEDIA.COM
