Fox Business just featured Urban Martial Arts in an article about web design for small businesses.
In the article, Carmen discusses how investing time and money into our business’s website design and search engine optimization was worthwhile:
As your small business grows and expands, it makes sense to hire outside help to develop your website accordingly. Professional Web developers bring a deep understanding of the latest technologies and online marketing practices. But be prepared — you’ll likely need to hire both a developer and a designer, and you should consider this a major business investment.
Although outsourcing website development can sometimes require spending thousands of dollars, the results pay off over time. The owners of a martial arts studio in New York City found an experienced developer to help improve their search engine optimization.
Redesigning the site is bringing many more potential customers through the door, says Carmen Sognonvi, co-founder and co-owner of Urban Martial Arts in the borough of Brooklyn. “We went from getting one or two leads per month through the site to now getting one or more leads per day.”
(In case you were wondering: No, that is not Carmen in the photo. LOL!)
