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.
Does Your Website Result In Any Of These Feelings?
Many business owners waste time designing and running websites that aren’t bringing in clients.
Did you pour research and effort into building your website but it isn’t resulting in clicks and leads?
Do you every type keywords into Google and for some reason you don’t see your website come up?
Do you own a small business and just need guidance and consulting to improve 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 it’s goods and services.
This is how many people will be doing all their online shopping via mobile devices. What makes this statistic worse is if your mobile site doesn’t load in under 1.5 seconds, people will bounce and you’re going to lose a ton of money to your competitors.
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 follow modern web design concepts.
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 just being beautiful.
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 specifically crafted call to action on each page tailored to a specific target audience.

Too many web design agencies in Norfolk, VA, and around the country concentrate solely on beauty. Thus the website just becomes an online billboard people glance over and then continue on. We will design your website to specifically target an audience/niche and sell your products and services.
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.
We take very in-depth notes, but our intake forms are designed to really get to know your business. When someone designs a website, it has to be for the people you wish to sell to. That’s why we want to know all about your target market, customers, and target audience.
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 that have the highest level of conversion, and we figure out what makes those websites work. We then go over more of your design needs.
Most web designers call this a wireframe. It’s a rough draft that will either look like an architect’s drawings or be done on Adobe (or other design software). Some designers will even build the website on a staging area (what we do). Once this is completed you will get to review it.
When we have the rough draft complete, we will create an interactive video and full-page images you can review. 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.
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 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.
