When building a small business website there are a lot of options to consider. For example, should you pay a graphic designer to assist in the layout, should you hire a company to program the site for you, or should you keep 100% control over the design and code by building your own website?

While we may be a bit biased, we think that having ownership of the look and feel of your small business website is essential to showing your brand and demonstrating your dedication to your business.

With the return of Daylight Savings Time here in the US, we are finally starting to see springtime on the horizon. And as the northeastern part of the country finally starts to thaw, you can feel the excitement about shedding winter layers and actually taking time to think about style again. With that in mind, we thought today was an excellent time to feature a Webs user website that we really enjoy: Man Of The Hour Magazine.

Not only is this an excellent online magazine website example, the site is jam-packed with insightful lifestyle articles. As described on their Facebook page, Man Of The Hour is “dedicated to cultivating the emerging generations of sophisticated men.” If you’re thinking about starting an online magazine or journal and want to emulate this website, take a look at the 3 things that make this a site successful:

Spring is only 21 days away here on the East Coast, which can mean only one thing: wedding season approaches!

To get into the spirit, we thought we would browse some of our amazing Webs user sites and feature a few services that are devoted to making your wedding occasion a special one.

But first, let us remind you what makes any website a great website:

We surveyed the inside experts here at Webs – from the people who make our tools to those who help users make the most of them – and found that 64% of respondents have not purchased something from a website due to its design or its content.

Majestic Wonders Website Header

Every few weeks, we feature Webs users here on the blog and highlight many of the interesting ways that they are using Webs to create truly stunning websites.

Recently, we’ve featured a dance psychologist, a beautiful art store, and a Turkish ice cream company!

In those posts, we’ve shared how you can achieve similar designs, use the same features, and learn from the experience of others.

Today we’d like to dig a little deeper and share a full small business success story. Several weeks ago, I reached out to Kerri, the owner of Majestic Wonders Photography, to see if she would be interested in sharing her story on the Webs blog. As a product owner on the Webs team, I was interested to hear more about her experiences with Webs and how our products helped her business succeed.

Perhaps the weather is perfectly fine wherever you are, but here in the Washington, DC area, it’s cloudy and in the mid-twenties. Which is why today’s Webs user example site will feature a tourism company in the state of Kerala, India, where it’s in the mid-eighties right now.

In addition to beautiful imagery and a nice-looking layout, the Swapna Kerala Holidays website succeeds at one of the most important things for a business in the travel industry: establishing trust. Whether within their own country or to the other side of the world, most people get a little anxious around travel. Which is why it’s so important for a company that serves travelers to convey through their website that customers are in good hands when choosing their services.

Puzzle Pieces

Search engine optimization (SEO) and social media go together in the digital world like smartphones and teenagers. You really can’t have one without the other, but a lot of people avoid SEO completely for their websites – not to mention their social media content – because they don’t know where to start.

SEO can certainly be confusing, and it’s changing constantly. However, knowing the basics of SEO and keeping up with trends is a good way to grow your business’ exposure. SEO is a means of boosting your web presence’s rankings in search engine results when people query ‘your’ keywords. Oftentimes the phrase “web presence” is used interchangeably with “website,” but that’s just because it’s most common. You can actually use SEO best practices, such as those detailed by Moz, anywhere you have control of content online. Here are just a few reasons why your social media presence should be part of your overall SEO strategy:

Example website

It’s Friday afternoon, which can certainly make you feel like dancing. Which is why we thought a great choice for today’s example site would be www.peterlovatt.com – the online home of Doctor Dance.

Peter Lovatt is a Dance Psychologist in England, where he is a Principle Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire. Lovatt also runs the university’s Dance Psychology Lab, which sounds like a pretty great place to hang out. Perhaps not surprisingly, his website is also a great place to hang out, because it is well-branded, easy to navigate, and full of rich imagery.

Lezzetli ice cream website

Given that we live and breathe small business marketing at Webs, it’s no surprise that seeing our users whip up a great website for an interesting business really makes our day around here. Today’s day-maker? Lezzetli Turkish-Style Ice Cream.

This mom-and-pop-style ice cream company is run by a couple who fell in love with traditional Turkish ice cream while traveling, and decided to bring the tradition back home to New York City.

One thing that shows Lezzetli is serious about their business is their consistent brand. From their web, to their social profiles, to their physical packaging, everything reinforces their energetic and natural style.
