“When it comes to online marketing, I’ve certainly learned a lot over the last few years, I’ve sold more than $15 million online.
When I started online, I had no design, you’d be horrified to look in the Wayback Machine and some of my properties. And you might want to vomit. I’m a huge convert of good design. If you want to have a good design, you have to invest but what it does, is it really lifts the perception of the brand, the confidence of the buyer, and the professionalism. Just take a look at the top authorities or gurus in any field, and the majority have a professional-looking site. It’s just how it is.
And quite interestingly, I’ve seen some people who aren’t even that on I would, I would say they’re not that talented or special, but really great designers carried them a little further than they might have got otherwise.
And one thing is for certain, design is more important online than you would think. And that is because people need to give you trust, and they make an immediate impression about you when they land on your website.
I’ve been using the services of Greg Merrilees and Studio1 Design, because I know that he’s got a great eye for design and he produces some amazing stuff.
And that’s why he’s designing for a lot of the top names on the internet.
They are worth the investment. If you’re going to spend some money on design, get someone who’s connected to the online world who has a good eye for design, but also understands conversions, and can really translate your vision.
If you tell them what sort of business you have, they are going to listen to you and come with some very accurate design concepts.
Studio1 designed both my websites, my podcast designs, my logos, and my book cover. I’ve even worked closely with Greg in his business and having that great relationship has given me an insight into how good his designs are.
I do recommend Greg Merrilees and Studio1 for design.”
