Designing Websites To Be Google Friendly And Grow Your RVA-Based Small Business

M.J. Web Design serves clients in Richmond, VA, and around the country by designing websites that sell. Not just look pretty. Oh, and EVERYONE gets a FREE 30-minute strategy session.

Have You Considered How Your Web Design Agency Should Be Designing Your Website?

This is Michael, the CEO of M.J. Web Design and I want to say welcome to the site. I want to greet every visitor and tell you what my web design agency is about. “RESULTS”. That’s why the websites we build, the copy we write, and the graphics we create, are designed around sales and conversion. You won’t find complicated, techy words on this website in an attempt to sound fancy. 

My agency concentrates on making you money and feeling pride when you see your website: and we do that by designing you a website that sells to your audience, and doesn’t just “look pretty”. Many business websites talk too much about themselves by saying we do this, and this, oh and this. While they should be saying “we will do this for YOU”, and “YOU will feel like this when we provide you this”. 

If that’s the kind of website you want designed for your business, your blog, or your non-profit, keep reading. You can contact us through any button and obtain a FREE 30 minute consultation and strategy session.

Is Your Website's Design Not Contributing To Your Business's Growth?
Do You Feel Frustrated About It?

Wasted Time?

Many business owners waste time designing and running websites that don’t bring in clients.


Have you tried to market your business with Google or social media but people don’t call? Not sure what to do? 

Losing to Competition?

Do your competitors seem to be growing and taking your customers? Do they rank above you on Google?

Lack of Guidance

Own a startup or business and don’t know web design? Maybe you aren’t sure where to begin marketing online?

The Benefits Of Fixing Or Updating Your Website's Design

Here are some statistics that show how keeping up with a website’s design is imperative in order to keep your business selling its goods and services. Here’s a link to the top 25 web design statistics on Hubspot.com.

0 %

Purchases Via Mobile

This is the percent of retail purchases that will be made online using a smart phone. If your website’s design doesn’t look incredible, has a poor user experience, and loads slowly on mobile devices, your company is going to be losing a lot of money.

0 %

Poor Usability

Your website has to have impeccable usability. That means your web designer should create a user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) that promotes easy navigation, has color schemes that are easy on the eye, and follows modern web design concepts.

0 %

Prefer Direct Response

A study completed in early 2022 showed that millennials and boomers preferred to receive marketing in the form of “direct response”. This means they prefer website pages written specifically to sell to them (as who they are), vs. just being beautiful.

0 %

No Call To Action

This is another example of how web designers concentrate too much on beauty vs. lead generation. They don’t incorporate any “direct response web design” strategies. A website should have a specially crafted call to action on each page, tailored to a specific target audience.

One Of Our Featured Website Designs

Greenshield Pest Control is a local pest control company in Richmond, VA, that services almost the entire state. Their manager found us through a Google search and set up a free meeting. They advised their SEO company brought in traffic, but no one was calling (does this sound like you?). We discovered the previous company ranked their website for a pest control company in Canada by the same name!!! The original website was designed poorly as well, and wasn’t optimized for SEO. We completely redesigned their website, optimized it for local SEO, and now they are receiving phone calls and signing new clients on a regular basis.


Our client Greenshield Pest Control of Richmond, VA, site before our redesign.

Here’s just a small sample of what our client had before we came on board. The headers were in the wrong order, the images had no “alt” text, The content wasn’t easy to read, and the photo had terrible alignment. 


Redesigned service sections with more branded color, text, and headers optimized for SEO.

What we did with the service sections is just one example. We made sure the background had more color and the other sections were white to provide emphasis on certain sections. The content was aligned properly and multiple headlines were created. One for SEO, and the other for sales purposes.

For every client we design a website for, we set them up with SEO and speed optimization.
When you design a website, it's best to hire a web designer who can have copy written to invoke emotion in the website visitor.
Web designers use graphics like the one here to promote a message.

Your Web Design Agency Needs A Process That Will Make You A Success

Our Web Design Process Is Unique And Designed To Get You The Best Website To Accomplish Your Goals

We designed our process to be more in depth than most web design agencies. Too many web designers just meet, build, and collect thousands of dollars. But, we want to go above and beyond.

Free Consultation

We offer every potential client a FREE consultation. Your consultation won’t be with a salesperson or project manager, it will be with the CEO directly. You will learn about us, the procedures we take, and our strategies for making your website something you will be proud of.

Business Info Forms

We take very in-depth notes, but our intake forms are designed to really get to know your business. When you design a website, it has to be for the people you wish to sell too. That’s why we want to know all about your customers and target audience.

Discovery Time

Once we get all of the information necessary, we aren’t done preparing. At this point, we research and discover the sites in your industry with the highest level of conversion, and we figure out what makes that website work. We then go over more of your design needs.

Your First Draft

Most web designers call this a wireframe. It’s essentially a rough draft and can either look like an architect with drawings or be done on Adobe (or other design software). Others build the website on a staging area (what we do). Then you will get to review it. 

Approval And Edits

After you receive the rough draft, you have the time to look it over. There’s no rush. We want you to be overly joyed and proud of your website. Once you approve the design, the copy, and the graphics, we will make any edits you want.  

Going Live

Now that we have made all of your edits and the final draft is ready to go, we don’t just launch it and move on. We show it off to groups of people that fall within your target audience to make sure it’s ready to go. Then, when it proves to be the best of the best, we submit it to Google and launch the site.

We Use The Best Website Builders And Content Management Systems Available

Not all website software is created equal. M.J. Web Design Richmond, VA does everything custom. That means when we meet with you we will interview you and utilize the web building software that is best suited for YOUR needs.

Do You Want A Website You Can Feel Proud Of. One That Will Work For You?

Web Design FAQ

If you have a question that’s not listed. Don’t hesitate to contact us here.

Yes we do! Our main office may be in Richmond, VA. But, since web design is a service that can be provided through the internet, we can work with any business owner in the state. We have traveled to Virginia Beach, Alexandria, Norfolk, and other counties and cities in the state.

It is not. Our company is a full-service web design company. Some of those services are UX and UI design (user experience and user interface), graphic design (setting up branding materials including logos), website maintenance (ensuring your website stays fast and secure),  eCommerce web design, content copywriting, search engine optimization, and other forms of digital marketing.

If you’re not sure whether hiring a professional web designer is the right choice for you, consider come of these questions.
  • Are you confident in your abilities to optimize the website for SEO and get it towards the top of the rankings?
  • Have you studied web design and can create something custom that sets you apart from the rest of the industry?
  • Have you read up on current web design trends?
  • Do you have the time set away to learn UX and UI web design principles, SEO, content management systems like WordPress, responsive web design, and more?

If you’re not sure about whether you can, or have the time to tackle these then we suggest you hire a professional web designer. Nothing could be more detrimental to a new business than a bland, boring website.

Web design prices vary based on what is being offered, the size and complexity of the website, and the overhead of the agency itself. M.J. Web Design is run remotely and has been set up to provide more value in return for your money. For example, many agencies charge $3,000 just for a basic website and setup. Our company will take custom photos, optimize the website for SEO, write custom copy, and provide all the necessary services at the same price to get you off the ground and running. Forbes has a great article on the average web design costs in 2023.

It’s okay if you’re not sure about your budget. We are here to help you. You’re not the first small business owner we’ve helped and you won’t be the last. You can pay off your website in separate payments if needed or have it build step by step. There are many ways we can get you the best of the best without destroying your bank account.

Of course you will! We will work with you and even provide training videos so you are able to update and maintain the website. But, if you’re not sure whether you can make it beautiful or you have time constraints, we do offer affordable website maintenance plans.

M.J. Web Design performs very intense discovery and research into your personal industry. We have developed websites for contractors, 3D designers, real estate agents, and others. Thanks to intense research and by studying successful competitors we’re a solid choice to work with.

If you already have a website and it doesn’t appear on Google, more than likely it was never optimized for search engines (SEO). We highly recommend getting a first time optimization when you hire us to design the website, even though it’s not a guarantee of high rankings. If any web designer or SEO specialist promises they will get you to the top: buyer beware! The industry is filled with scammers and those who don’t have the proper experience but overly promise.

There are many different website builders (WIX, Squarespace, etc.), and content management systems (WordPress, Magenta, Joomla, Drupal, etc.). Even though we have experience on multiple platforms our web designers prefer sticking to WordPress. WordPress has the widest array of plugins (software), features, and customization. There’s a reason WordPress powers 810 million websites. We have certain web design and SEO packages that cover your website migration and redesign should you already have one on a different platform.
