Who needs a website designer? Today, any company, professional, public figure, consultant or self-employed freelancer needs an exciting web presence that describes who they are, what they do, and why people should want to be their customer. It is simple to find a website designer happy to build a website for you. How do you know which one to choose? Which one will help grow your business? You need a website designer that will help you stand out from the rest.
First: Go Local
A business-critical website needs to be in the hands of professionals, preferably ones you can reach out and touch to hold accountable. A site that effectively conveys your message is a product of more than one website designer. It’s created by a team working on your behalf: a team that must be accountable to you, who knows your potential customer base, and who is in touch with the vibe of the places you live and work. A local company has that insight into your world and they’re right there with you, a real partner in the community. A remote website designer may be a perfectly good technician, but they don’t have a reputation in the community to uphold. You do. Shouldn’t your website designer, too?
Second: Marketing Matters!
What’s Wrong with a Standard Website?
Nothing, as long as your business is exactly where you want it to be. A boring website by a novice website designer is like a phone book entry: it is useful as a reference for current customers. But that’s not going help your business grow and thrive. A website designer that can really generate new business needs to have skills beyond technical and programming ability to get your phone ringing. There’s a reason that a website designer is taught in the computer science field and a marketing expert is taught in business school. Marketing specialists know how to analyze the potential customer base and create a campaign to garner lots of exposure to that group. A marketing expert working together with a top-flight website designer can make websites that grab a potential customer and don’t let go.

Seeing is Believing
There’s no need to take Ad Army Group’s website design skills on faith. Check them out for yourself. Ad Army Group has worked with many companies and celebrities to create unique and eye-catching internet presences — like these.
Grant Fuhr, Darryl Sittler, and Eric Lindros
Five-time Stanley Cup winning goalie Grant Fuhr needed a website that represented his background, personality, and current endeavours. Ad Army Group’s website designers created Grant’s website to effectively convey that all for fans and prospective employers. Note the clean layout, the vibrant colors, the dynamic displays, the still gallery and an engaging video. It all pulls together in a fascinating view of a great athlete and a great marketing platform for those needing inspirational speakers.
While still in the hockey business, Daryl Sittler’s website, also created by Ad Army Group, has a different look and feel from Grant Fuhr’s, reflecting the differences in their personalities and play styles. Eric Lindros’ official websiteis different yet, though still eye-catching and exciting. It emphasizes the charity fundraising efforts of the famous power forward.
What all these athletes’ websites have in common is that they are more entertainment than advertising. Ad Army Group has captured the excitement of hockey and the personalities of these hard-driving athletes through their combination of marketing expertise and website designer excellence. The websites make it enticing for the visitor to browse through the pages and keep reading, listening and watching. Once a potential customer reaches the ‘Booking’ tab, they want to get to know these athletes better and hear what they have to say in person. The sites reflect their inspiring personalities and beautifully convey why we should want to listen to their message.
Ad Army Group goes far beyond the sporting world! Vanessa consulted with Ad Army Group when her celebrity status was very new. Paul Cookson showed Vanessa how she could leverage her initial fame into a well-rounded career, adding radio and a column to her TV credentials and creating a clean and crisp website to effectively display Roman’s portfolio of products to both fans and new viewers alike, and shows niche fans the other areas of her work. Expertise liek this is what builds long and successful runs for celebrities and businesses alike.
