Distractions! They come when you least expect them. Staying focused in any business can be a challenge to say the least. Keeping your eye on the prize is very difficult. Personnel problems, marketing issues, price increases, shipping details and on and on it goes! Add to the mix your website and all it entails, it can all combine to drive you nuts. Why add one more diversion to your plate when you could leave the website design, development and maintenance to a professional company?

At VisionAmp, we have seen many businesses that begin with great intentions absolutely drown because they had too many irons in the fire. Most successful businesses we work with have purposefully chosen to focus on what they can do and they do it well. They also realize that utilizing the skills of others to bring strength to areas where they are weak is key.


Here are some signs that you have let distractions get the best of you and your business:

1. Your website looks the same way it did when you launched it

Many people have the “Build it and they will come” mentality when it comes to a website. Create it, leave it and hope for the best. Maintaining fresh online content is critical. If visitors land on your site for a second or third time, it’s probably because there’s something new to see - new products, fresh pictures, updated news etc. If they don’t return - 1, you didn’t have time to mess with it and/or 2 - there is no back door access that lets you upload fresh content from anywhere, anytime. It was just built the wrong way.

2. The website crashed days ago

This usually happens when you’re too busy to monitor the site. It also means that nobody was on your site to even notice something was wrong - so there was no one to call in and let you know you had a problem. When VisionAmp builds your site, we have built in monitoring software that lets us know the minute a site goes down. While this is rare, it does happen. It also means that with us on your team, your site will be back up and going WAY faster than if you tried to manage it and fix it yourself. 

3. Customers get no response

Today, people have grown accustomed to immediate results. Fast internet, fast restaurant service, as well as almost immediate response to questions they have about products you have for sale on your site. They may be needing more information about your business and the services you provide. If they get crickets, they will quickly jump to one of your competitors who will more than likely give them the information they need.


If you snooze you lose. We design websites that can alert you the instant someone is requesting information. In addition to this, there are other auto response programs we can implement to assist you in responding to frequently asked questions and more!

4. Decreased sales

This one is huge! While you may be depending on your brick and mortar business to bring the bank, more and more customers are letting their fingers do the walking FIRST. If they are turned away by your site due to neglect, they probably won’t darken your door. Also, as with any business, things change - and this includes new products and services. If you are distracted and don’t keep your inventory up to date on your website, you will quickly see a decline in sales. Customers may see one thing online, only to discover that it’s no longer available
