Images / Videos
While many sites choose to use stock images, NEXTFLY strongly encourages the use of personalized images for your business. Potential clients feel more connection to sites that have images the location, employees, and portfolio over sites that have stock photography. Additionally if you are selling products on your website, it is extremely important to have high quality images.
While we do not offer photography or videography, we do have recommendations of local companies that can help you out. We have recommendations with all different skill sets and price ranges.
Aside from images, another valuable asset to your website is your verbiage. While NEXTFLY does offer content writing services, no one knows your business and your voice better than you. To have a high ranking site you will want to have as much text on your pages as possible. We suggest having 750 words or more per page on your site. The more content you have on each page the more our Search Engine Optimization Specialist have to work with when optimizing your site.
We understand that not everyone has the time to come up with this much wording. This is just a rule of thumb, if you have to have less text, it is important to have well worded copy. You want your clients to come to your site and easily understand your business and what you offer.
