It's why you'll spend more time than you expected searching and talking to web developers.
And it's why even after talking to them you still won't know if you're making the right decision.
That's because it's difficult to know if you found the right fit after just looking at portfolios and making quick phone calls.
It's a tough situation for small business owners until you realize that...
A good website is not about creativity or talent.
Making a good website is a strategic process based entirely on data, psychology and following proven formulas in order to maximize conversions.
By using the correct, well-thought-out strategy for your individual business, you can persuade your visitors on autopilot.
Conversion focused web design is based on the science of how people interact with websites and what makes them take action.
The initial goal of a website, before you do anything else, is to use your website to make people like and trust you first.
In order to get people to like and trust you, you have to understand who they are and what motives they have.
To get to know them you need to research them...
Or you can risk it and not do any research.
But I don't like to base my business on risk, and I doubt that you do too.
This is why my first step of any website project is to do heavy research into your customers and your competition.
Research helps me get into the minds of your customers and competitors, which allows me to find out:
All of this information helps create a website that allures and reverberates with your audience.
And a website that allures and reverberates with your audience is how you get a website that works on autopilot, bringing you new business while you sleep.

I promise that this won't be a "sales-y" interaction. As a result of receiving so many inquiries, I'm fortunate enough to be selective about what projects that I take on – I have no need to sell or pressure you into something that's not in your best interest.
"Before starting our websites, my primary concern was making sure we got a return on investment for our project. Keith understood our concern throughout the whole process – and got it all done in a reasonable amount of time.
It's very important that our name and events are in front of the public eye. Keith recognized that having a well-done website with simple, but clear information was our priority. Being in front of the public on social media is our number one way to bring in new clients and to promote our events.
Keith was always responsive and able to offer quick solutions and assistance whenever asked. He worked with us to clearly define the goals of the project and has a fast response time for requests, help or adjustments to the site.
I love working with Keith and Buckle Up Studios. His turnaround time is fast and he was able to take our sometimes vague instructions and vision and turn them into a great website."
"I wanted a new and better website for my business, but had no idea how to go about making the changes I wanted. Luckily Keith at Buckle Up Studios was patient and willing to sit down with me and question me on everything I wanted the site to do, as well as give helpful tips and suggestions.
I couldn't be happier with the end result. I now have a better website, a better product for my customers, and a better business for me.
I'm very happy with my website's ascetic and ease of use, but equally important was Keith's patience and willingness to sit down with me and figure out exactly what I wanted (sometimes when I didn't even know myself).
I love the work that Buckle Up Studios has done for me and I would and have highly recommended him to others!"
"There are two things in life that I don’t do... math and HTML.
I have known for a while now that it was time to breathe new life into my web presence and how I display my photographic voice online, but I had been kicking and dragging my heels because, quite frankly, the World Wide Web scares me.
Keith has been just awesome. He has a quick response time, which is great for people like me who have the patience of a hummingbird. Added bonus, he was able to understand Kelley-speak when I tried to convey my website needs.
He kept me under my budget, leaving me with all sorts of warm-fuzzy feelings. I shopped around with a couple different website builders and by far Keith was the easiest to communicate with, and was quick in making my website needs come to life."
"From Start to finish, Keith was on time on point & wouldn't let me slip behind, had me get all my info and images in and always responded to my emails promptly. I should have just contacted Buckle Up Studios sooner."
"Keith is very knowledgeable regarding all aspects of web development and I was able to trust him, which is extremely important for me in doing business."
What happens after you contact me?
Once you contact me I'll send you a list of about 10 questions so that I can learn about you and your business. Based on your answers, if I think that I can help you with your problem we'll schedule a phone call to learn more about each other.
How much does it cost?
Of course, this answer varies with every project. I aim to be a valuable asset to your business and to get you a return on your investment.
Do you work with every client?
No, I'll know early on if a project is a good fit – if it isn't I'll let you know quickly. Working together to help you accomplish your goals is a big endeavor, so we need to have good chemistry and I need to make sure I can give you a return on investment.
Don't waste another day with a website that's not firing on all cylinders.Fill out a new project application »
I'm not going to sell you or pressure you into something you don't want or need, the first step is to see if we are even a good fit for each other.
I'm only available for 2 new projects per month. Scheduling is first come, first served. The sooner you get started, the sooner you will have the website you need to get your business unstuck.
