Website Design Bournemouth, Dorset, UK by Thumbprint
Website design in Bournemouth, Dorset is hard. There are so many people doing the same thing, offering the same thing and saying the same thing. So, I decided to write a post that isn’t trying to sell anything or have an ulterior motive for marketing or win any business. This is just about me and what it is like to work as a website designer.
The inspiration for this this post came from a phone call I had from Yell today. The sales person was trying to persuade me to invest in some advertising that would place Thumbprint 2nd in the list of results for the search term ‘website design Bournemouth’. He asked me a question which I found impossible to answer.
What do you do and what services do you offer that makes you different from the other website designers in Bournemouth?
That completely stopped me dead in my tracks! I was desperately searching for something to say that would provide an adequate response to his question but nothing came to mind. That’s because the answer is, quite simply, “Nothing.”
Thumbprint Website Design Bournemouth doesn’t do anything differently or better than any of my competitors. When I say competitors, I mean all the other designers that appear in the first couple of pages of search results. The fact they appear in the top 20 positions means they are serious about what they do and they also do a good job.
The only real difference from one website designer to another is how we portray ourselves online. What do our websites say about us as designers? What impression do they make? Have we got the formula right that makes you decide to choose us to provide you with website services or are you going to move along and see what the next company has to offer?
Despite not having any discernible differences in terms of the services and end results from other website designers, I absolutely love what I do. I get to work from home, choose my own hours, choose the people with whom I work, don’t have anyone telling me what to do or appraisals and pay rises and bonuses to sweat about and I get to be a fussy, fastidious perfectionist and the time I need to do it. It might not mean anything to anyone else but I put heart and soul into the websites I build and I’ve never done anything less than I would expect to have for myself.
Don’t get me wrong, if you are reading this and trying to decide whether to give me the job, Thumbprint is the best website designer in the world………of course!!!
