Websites That “WOW!” Your Customers! (And You Too!)
First impressions mean everything in business. These days, it’s often your website that makes that first impression, and far too often, websites send potential customers straight to the competition, and you don’t even know about it.
Think of your own browsing habits. When you hit a website that doesn’t have what you’re looking for, is hard to navigate or is, well, ugly, what do you do? You find one that works for you. We all do it.
So, how does your website stack up?
Since 2004, we’ve been working with business owners just like you establish a solid presence on the web. We build websites that not only “Wow!” your prospects, but our sites are designed to turn browsers to callers. That’s our goal with every website- to get your phone ringing.
There are a lot of web designers or web developers around Snellville that can make beautiful websites, but we’re amazed at how often the idea of conversion gets ignored. Conversion is what happens when your browser executes your “Call To Action”- calls you, fills out a form or buys something. Obviously, if prospects are contacting you from the website, that site is “working” which makes you, the business owner happy as well!
The staff at Make It Loud brings over 15 years of experience to every web design project. We can help with all your digital marketing needs. A great looking website is a great way to start marketing your business. Call us and let’s get started today.

Web Designers With Experience
Your website is your digital front door, so it’s kind of important, wouldn’t you agree?
Then, why do so many businesses turn to people without experience to build their business website?
Look, we get it. When your business is young, you spend as little as possible to get going. A lot of people walk into our shop and tell us how they got their cousin’s college roommate to build their site for $500, but they now realize that they’re not getting much (read any) business from it.
That’s where hiring an experienced web developer can really pay off. In all the years we’ve been building websites for business owners, we’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. Your website should help you on many fronts. It should:
- Be attractive for your industry.
- It should have a clear call to action (CTA)
- It should be easy for browsers to find what they need (and what you want them to find!)
These are just the basics, but to our surprise, there are a ton of websites out there that don’t meet these basic needs. That’s where our web designers can help.
We get a lot of calls from business owners who have tried “do it yourself” (DIY) websites or hired “a guy”. To a person, each caller has said they’ve gotten “nothing” from their website. They’re pretty discouraged.
These days, the cost of a professionally developed website can be a wide range. We have local competitors who don’t begin to design a website for less than $10,000. At Make It Loud, we feel like you shouldn’t have to take out a second mortgage to have a great looking, conversion-friendly website for your business.
Of course, the price of a dependable website depends upon the functionality you need. Some clients need an e-commerce function or they need their site to integrate into another system. This often requires more work, so it’s natural for it to cost more. Contact us. We’ll be happy to give you a quote on what it costs to develop a website that will serve your needs and your sales staff will be proud of. In fact, we’ll help you with all your digital marketing needs.
Web Design That Makes Your Phone Ring More!
Let’s be honest, the average person has the attention span of a goldfish while browsing online. That’s why it’s essential that your website makes a great impression. In fact, you have less than 6 seconds before your browser decides to read more or move on. For business owners in Snellville as well as anywhere else, your conversions or sales are made or lost from there.
These days, Google is where roughly 70% of the U.S. population turns to solve all their problems. If your business isn’t online, you are leaving money on the table because your competitors certainly are there. It’s hard to get the clicks if you’re not there!
That’s where Make It Loud can help.
Sure, your website needs to be beautiful. That’s a given, but is your site conversion friendly? This is the term used to describe turning “looky-loos” into actual paying customers. Believe it or not, we see a lot of websites where the business owner wants the browser to call them, but the phone number isn’t even on the homepage. It’s essential that we make it easy for the browser to follow through. We think that a site that doesn’t convert well isn’t serving you well.
For more than 15 years, we’ve been helping business owners just like you not only establish a professional online presence but convert browsers into customers.
Web Designers Who’ve Seen It All
Because we’ve been around so much longer than most web designers, we’ve done sites for a wide variety of different industries.
Some web design firms claim to specialize in websites for certain industries; dentists, attorneys, etc. They often claim that they have special insight into digital marketing for those industries. While they might have some familiarity with those industries, there is also a lot of duplicate content that gets put on sites across the country which can hurt your visibility.
With all of our experience, it’s very likely that we’ve worked with many different companies in your industry, so not only have we seen what works, but we have the unique ability to see what has worked in other industries as well.
The reality is that every website begins with a framework and a layout. The only things that differentiate a website for a dentist and one for a plumber are the colors, images, and content. Don’t get fooled by web design companies that say they specialize. The real difference is how the site gets marketed once it’s live.
Two Types Of Web Designers
It may be an oversimplification, but it’s been our experience that there are web designers who build sites and keep the “keys” to the site. The truth is that these web developers are working to maintain an ongoing revenue stream by holding customers hostage so that when they need any changes, you have to pay the web designer to get them done- and wait for their schedule.
We’ve always been the other type of web designs. We feel strongly that you should have complete access and ownership of your site. If you want to make changes, you should have the ability and know-how to do so- on your schedule!
That’s why we train all our customers on how to change the content on their website. This puts the hub of your marketing firmly in your hands. We’ll manage your site if you want us to, but after our training session, most customers feel confident in making the changes themselves.

Web Designers With A Retail Shop
Nearly 7 years ago, we asked ourselves, “Where does somebody go to talk about digital marketing?”
It was a weird thing to ask ourselves, but the question haunted us a bit. That’s part of why we decided to open a retail shop up between the Mall of Georgia and the Gwinnett Stripers stadium.
We get a lot of people who walk in and say something to the effect of, “I’ve driven by your place for months now, and I wanted to come in and talk to somebody about an idea I have”. We’ve had the privilege of helping many business owners get their start.
Unfortunately, many of our customers have had negative experiences dealing with other web designers. Usually, it was a cousin’s friend’s kid who started the website but got bored and stopped returning calls. These people take great comfort in the fact that they know where to find us, and we’re clearly not going anywhere.
Believe it or not, there are local web design firms around Atlanta that won’t touch a site for less than $8,000-$10,000. While there are certainly some websites that need to cost that much and more, the majority of business owners don’t need anything nearly that complex or expensive.
On the other end, there are web designers out there that charge a nominal monthly fee. Over a short amount of time, these websites can cost way more than they have to because the monthly fee never ends. Be careful about financing your website because it can cost you more than you would ever pay directly.

Custom web will help create a personalized experience for both the company and the target market.

User-Friendly Web Design
Far too many web designers create sites for business owners who end up with no access or understanding of how to use the site they have. Since the website is the hub of your entire marketing, not having a working understanding or access to your site handcuffs the business owner. We spend the time to teach our clients how to update and make edits to their site, so they have control of this essential aspect of their business. To us, that’s the ultimate meaning of “user-friendly”.
Come by our shop and let’s talk about your digital marketing needs. We’ll help you identify the right direction for your business. Let our experience help guide yours.
For years, the saying around Snellville is “Everyone is someone in Snellville”. We certainly think that about the business owners!
Located in the southeastern part of Gwinnett, Snellville began around 1879 as a small settlement called New London. At the center of town was a small goods & supply store run by Thomas Snell and Charles & James Sawyer. The store was so successful that people began to settle around the store. Eventually, the settlers decided to change the name to Snellville.
The town has grown to nearly 19,000 residents. With parks like Briscoe, Lenora & South Gwinnett nearby, there’s always something to do. Shop for antiques or bargains at Ally’s Attic or Unique Treasures Flea Market. It’s a short drive down Highway 78 to Stone Mountain Park. There are great schools and plenty to do around Snellville.
