Bubble Beep creates friendly mobile apps to ensure our clients can keep in touch with their customers even when they are on the move. Developing an app is a strategic decision and an investment in the future of your business. Stay ahead of the curve, it is time to get mobile!
Not all businesses can effort or need a mobile app, but having at least a ‘mobile friendly’ website is now crucial to business survival. More than half of all searches for products and services are now conducted using a smartphone or mobile device. This figure is expected to climb to 90% in the next 5 years.
We will help you create a mobile site that actually acts like an app and expands for desktop visitors. We design mobile sites with a view to emphasize key pages from the website which can enable the mobile user to get the necessary information and take action.
Your website becomes more important to your business every day. It’s how the world does business. Yet so many small business websites are behind the times. Outdated designs and inaccurate information give customers the wrong impression right off the bat. Sites that don’t resize to work well on mobile devices make finding information difficult. Most users try to compensate for the problem by zooming in so they can see the text and click the links, but this makes the experience both cumbersome and irritating. When you make it difficult for users to find what they want, chances are, they’ll leave your website and find a better site that’s easier to use – maybe even a competitor’s website.
Problem 1 – Costs
Great websites cost a lot of money. At Bubble Beep, we know it because we’ve been building websites for a decade. But the Internet has changed a lot since then.
Today’s custom designs are more complex than ever and that means we need to charge more than most small businesses can afford.
Problem 2 – Time
Custom websites naturally take more time. It takes 90+ days to build a typical website because it requires lots of decisions and involvement from you.
We start custom websites from scratch, building them from the ground up. Each site is unique, so it takes time to get everything right.
Problem 3 – Convenience
To save money, you might have considered building a website on your own with a do-it-yourself company. But the reality is that most small business owners don’t have the time to sort through all the technical details. No matter how easy the process seems, you still need to know a bit about design, programming and copywriting to get your site working right. If you had the time for that, you would probably have a great site already.
So you don’t have the money for a custom website and you don’t want the hassle of building a site on your own. What if there was another option?
We’ve thought about this a lot. We wanted to find a way to get back to helping the customers we love – small business owners. So we’ve streamlined our processes to help you build a site that has everything you need, without the complexity and customizations you don’t. We’ve made great small business websites affordable again!
What does graphic design really have to do with your marketing strategy? Think about the most powerful brands that you know, and then consider your own business – the materials you distribute on a regular basis, the logo and branding of your company, and the way you’re represented at trade shows and special events.
Are you being displayed powerfully and professionally, or are you lacking in the visuals that people remember even if they forget your company’s name?
Here are five reasons graphic design is something you should care about.
1. Graphic design increases brand recognition.
If your marketing efforts are backed up by a strong, unified design that carries from your color palette to your logo to your postcards and annual reports, you’ll start to become recognized.
2. Graphic design says that you’re professional.
When you see a truck with a hand-painted “logo” or get a piece of direct mail that looks like it was designed in Microsoft Paint, you’re not likely to think the company is very professional. On the other hand, great graphic design has the opposite effect, showing that you’re legitimate and qualified.
3. Graphic design communicates.
“A picture’s worth a thousand words” may in fact be an understatement. Expert graphic design can communicate things about your business that would be difficult to put into words. Furthermore, visual aids and images in your marketing materials improve the chances that your prospects will truly understand what you’re selling.
4. Graphic design is advertising.
In other words, strong graphic design isn’t just a bunch of images in an ad or whitespace filler. Rather, it’s integrated with your branding and your advertising in a marriage that offers more than just a message or an image alone.
5. Graphic design is money in your pocket.
Bad graphic design sells poorly. Once you’ve paid for marketing materials that employ subpar graphic design, you’ve already thrown your money away because you won’t see the ROI that you need. On the other hand, an amazing graphic design tied to a compelling message is a proven technique for generating interest and driving sales.
Digital media is so pervasive that consumers have access to information any time and any place they want it. Gone are the days when the messages people got about your products or services came from you and consisted of only what you wanted them to know. Digital media is an ever-growing source of entertainment, news, shopping and social interaction, and consumers are now exposed not just to what your company says about your brand, but what the media, friends, relatives, peers, etc., are saying as well. And they are more likely to believe them than you. People want brands they can trust, companies that know them, communications that are personalized and relevant, and offers tailored to their needs and preferences.
