A web design testimonial from Todd Colchin

Today at the Westside Business Builders meeting, Todd Colchin of Colchin Automotive & Diesel gave Katz Web Design a testimonial:

Our website is just barely up — and we’ve not done anything with it yet — and yesterday, we got two new customers who came into our shop who found us by our website! They were both 18-25 years old.

Having a website is vital, especially if you want to appeal to younger customer base.

Today, a business associate asked me “I know about blogging, and it seems like a waste of time. Why is blogging worth the time?” I was able to reply with some very convincing arguments — and in a way, I reminded myself about the value of blogging.

How to get better search results with 5 simple steps

Search Engine Optimization is not voodoo; it directly translates into how well your website performs.  The Ignite Matchmaking website was not performing well last September for their main keywords.  Katz Web Design redesigned their site, optimized the site for their keywords, and now, look at their ranking:

  • Denver professional matchmaker: 1
  • Denver match makers: 2 (up from under 1000)

  • Denver matchmaker: 3 (up from 508)
  • Matchmaking denver: 4 
  • Denver matchmaking: 5 (up from 112)

Real Results from a Website Redesign

As I previously mentioned, I recently redesigned the Ignite Matchmaking website. I spoke with the site’s owner yesterday, and she told me she was overwhelmed with new business because of her website.

Since Katz Web Design redesigned my site, I’m completely overwhelmed with leads. I have 11 from last Thursday and Friday, and then I have 11 from just this week (Monday and Tuesday), and those are only the people who fill out the contact form on the website!

Before the site was redesigned, the site was getting 2 emails a week. Now I’m overwhelmed with the number of qualified leads I’ve been getting!
