They build websites that are able to qualify, educate, and nurture leads for you with smart content and smart CTAs.
They've given a very comprehensive description of what to expect when you choose to build a HubSpot website with them.
They emphasize how important it is to have a powerful tool to manage website content, fully responsive design so your website can be used on all devices. One thing we love about Guava Box is how honest they are about the platforms they use:
"WordPress is awesome, and, when updated and configured properly, is as secure as any platform out there – and superior to most – but it’s a major liability when it’s not updated consistently. Unlike a faceless international hosting provider where you are merely a customer number, we treat your website like the gold in Fort Knox."
They also talk about how important it is to set clear expectations right from the get-go to stay on track and achieve goals. They share this 8-step process:
- Agree on the project scope and terms. Several important variables to consider here are:
- Who will be creating content?
- What is included beyond just the website (search engine optimization, social media integration, lead nurturing, etc.)?
- What is the time frame and budget?
- What kind of complex functionality is required?
- Understand your audience and define your goals for the website.
- Establish the user flow, navigational structure, and primary pages.
- Design mock-ups and choose a design.
- Create, refine, and proof the content required for the site.
- Develop the framework, implement the content, and optimize each page.
- Review the website and make necessary changes and improvements.
- Configure redirects and make the technical transfer to launch the site.
