Some of the absolute worst websites in existence are in the category of “Outdoor Sports,” and more specifically hunting guides, fishing guides, destination locations and lodges. It’s not like they don’t have or make the money to afford the most important advertising component of the 21st. century, often they just don’t know any better.
So many people in these professions may have started out hunting, fishing or guiding as a hobby, and now they are caught up in doing it for a living. Before the “Great Recession” you may have been so busy you thought it would never end, and a website was an afterthought. NOW, perhaps you are struggling to keep a fishing guide business going, or a lodge or hunting outfitter. AND you still have that same website you had during the good old days. Guess what? It isn’t working anymore!
What you need is a website that feeds people’s need to know, about you, your guide service, your outfitting service or lodge. A site like this one, the one you are looking at right now, will satisfy people’s need to know. You can post images of clients with their catch, kill or whatever it is that you make happen for them. And, you can do it easily and virtually in real time! Trust me, if it weren’t easy, I wouldn’t be doing it right now!
Don’t believe me? Take a look around at websites that are full of content like video, music, photographs and entries from the field, and you will find the vast majority of them were created by WordPress. And since I spend a lot of time outdoors, I already know what you need on your website to make it work for you, and drive more people to your outdoor oriented business.
There’s an old saying, “Nothing any good was ever free,” and like it or not, we still have to make a go of it in a capitalist system. If you already have a website, then you know it’s an asset, and the fee you paid to have a professional to design and host the website is part of your CODB (Cost Of Doing Business) and a deductible expense. That said, if you already have significant traffic to your website, there is a very good possibility that you will see more traffic, and have an easier time converting visits to customers IF you use your new wordpress site to its full potential. Remember; Google loves wordpress.
I think you will find your ROI (Return On Investment), when it comes to the incredibly affordable rates at Denton Digital, to be amazingly high. A perfect example of a outdoor business I took from nowhere to front-and-center is www.dfwflyfishing.com. Recently retired, the owner of the site had zero presence when we began discussing his needs for a website to highlight his fly fishing guide services. He immediately saw a bump in his business, as people he didn’t know found him, and people referred to him from fly shops and other people, finally had a place to go to initiate contact. And there is still enough content on his site to continue to generate traffic – even though he hardly posts new entries anymore. Amazing!
Denton Digital is here to bring affordable websites to businesses and individuals, sole proprietors and small companies. When considering pricing (fill out the “Contact” form to get current pricing), don’t forget that wordpress sites comprise probably the most successful platform for currently doing business on the internet. And, again, you will have full control turned over to you to run your site, and generate the precise content you need to drive traffic to your site. Besides that, you can also add plugins that make it easy to feature photography, video and integration of current social networking sites you already use; facebook, youtube, twitter, pinterest and many more.
