When you think about web design, flawless photos and a gorgeous color scheme may come to mind. But, while those are necessary website components, your site should be more than just beautiful; it must also be strategic. In other words, your website should include relevant, helpful content with a straightforward navigation that makes it easy for visitors to buy or learn more. 

Every creative entrepreneur should have a strategic website because your website is the best way for people to find you and learn about the valuable solutions that you offer. And, by creating a website with excellent copy and user-friendly design, you’ll give customers a preview of the pleasant, professional experience they can look forward to when they work with you.

Friend, I know it’s tough for creatives to find time to build an entire strategic website! That’s why Octavia Elease, a ShowIt web designer, works with creative entrepreneurs so they can save time and communicate their value with websites designed with the customer in mind.
