Atlanta-Based Agency Develops Google Docs-Based Methodology To Help Businesses Streamline Their HubSpot Web Design Process


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012

All web design projects have at least 3 stages: strategy, design, and implementation. Often, companies start the graphics portion of their web design before addressing their messaging and determining how their website will help them capture more leads, often leading to higher costs, frustration, and an ineffective website.

One of the major web design pitfalls that we have seen, is the tendency of business owners and marketers to focus first on the look and feel of their website. said Eduardo Esparza, president of Market 8, this only leads to countless revisions, increased design costs, and ineffective websites that do not support sales growth.

Last December of 2011, Market 8 launched a series of web design templates for the HubSpot CMS and a methodology that helps companies understand their messaging and their lead conversion triggers.

Companies adopting HubSpot and immersing themselves in inbound marketing, need to be thinking about how to generate leads through their website. Our methodology for HubSpot web design forces companies to think about what they want to say and how leads will convert; we then help them execute their message and their lead capture process with custom graphics, custom calls to action buttons and a series of web page templates that they can reuse as they create their content, said Esparza.

Market 8s HubSpot web design is facilitated by a proprietary, easy to use Google Docs-based Implementation Workbook that allows efficient collaboration between clients and the Market 8 team.

Our process is designed to facilitate collaboration, Esparza said, sometimes we see up to 6 people working and discussing different aspects of messaging, content and conversion, simultaneously, in a single Google spreadsheet; this eliminates e-mailing information, version control, and allows for quicker implementations and a better end result, every single time.

Market 8s hubspot web design templates have a starting price of $ 950 and are available in 4 different layout structures and implementation levels.

Growthink’s Dave Lavinsky Reveals 8 Ways Business Owners can Increase their Company’s Value


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2012

Entrepreneurs who really do roll up their sleeves and get to work on something great for several years or more, owe it to themselves to have a final result for their efforts that is truly a masterpiece. This is according to Dave Lavinsky, co-founder and President of Growthink Inc., a leading entrepreneurial consulting firm whose extensive suite of products, services, and tools help entrepreneurs to accelerate the growth of their business.

“If and when it does come time to sell your business, you want to be selling from a position of strength-to sell it when it is at its most valuable point and not when you’re burned out, in ill health, or in some other situation where you are rushed or won’t make nearly as much from the sale,” says Lavinsky.

Lavinsky believes that businesses should have the end in mind, and encourages entrepreneurs to envision what their future “sellable” business will look like. “This will give you an ideal to work towards and guide your plans and work,” he said.

The following points were highlighted by Lavinsky to help entrepreneurs increase the value of their business to themselves and to potential acquirers:

#1 – Positioned in its Clearly-Defined Niche

“Your business must be the best it can be at what it does, without trying to be everything to everyone,” said Lavinsky. “A business that knows its customer segments, their needs and language, and how to solicit a response from them is a lot more valuable than one that is a mixture of everything, or an unknown in its market.”

#2 – Coach Your Team to Run the Business Without You

“Could other people ever run your business without you?” asks Lavinsky. “They’ll have to, if you’re selling! So why not make this your goal from Day One?”

Lavinsky suggests to make an organizational chart of how the business will look when it’s time to sell it.

“List all the various workers in marketing, operations, and those they report to. It’s okay if it’s just you or a handful of people currently filling all those roles. Doing this will help you organize who is going to do what in your business before you hire a new person,” he says.

“Then, over time, you can find other people to fill those positions one by one until you’re out of the picture.”

#3 – Build Relationships with Customers

According to Lavinsky, “goodwill, such as your reputation and brand in the minds of your current and prospective customers, is considered an asset on your company’s balance sheet. You build this over time by treating people right and maintaining good relationships.”

“If you intend to sell your business someday, or if you just want to have the option, this is something you have to make a priority throughout the business’s life. You can’t just start doing it well suddenly in the final year. Relationships and recognition take time.”

#4 – Be Stable

Lavinsky warns businesses not to become overly dependent on any one customer, vendor, employee, or anything else.

“Diversify your strengths. If you have any ‘whale’ customers that make up a large portion of your business, try to get at least 80% of your business from other people,” said Lavinsky.

“The new owner does not want to take the reins and have revenues drop in half in the event your biggest customer leaves.”

#5 – Maximize your Revenues

“This one’s self-evident, but deserves to be highlighted. A company with higher revenues and which shows growing revenues will be more valuable and attractive to buyers,” says Lavinsky.

#6 – Hold Expenses Accountable

“You boost your net profit (and therefore the value) by reducing your expenses. However, no one ever shrank themselves into wealth. You’re not going to grow your business by keeping expenses lower-but the numbers will increase as it grows,” said Lavinsky.

“Your goal is to keep the percentages the same, such as keeping advertising at 20% of your revenues whether earnings are $ 100,000 or $ 1,000,000 per year. Basically, you’ll want to make sure that budgets are made and followed, to keep spending within projected limits and to avoid costs creeping up that don’t generate more revenue in return.”

#7 – Keep Great Records for the Next Owner

“Keep excellent records of everything for the new owner-your files, databases, customer communications, marketing materials, financial records, employee agreements-everything.”

“Committing to do this now will make your life so much easier between now and the time you sell. Keep good records for your own efficiency, protection, and to make your business look a lot more attractive to buyers than one where all the records are filed away in the old owner’s head,” said Lavinsky.

#8 – Develop a Plan for When It’s “Done” and Ready to Sell

“I don’t want you to have plans on top of plans, but each of these will take certain actions to make them happen. So here’s what to do: Add these end results into your existing business plan, and use your best judgment when choosing how to make each of them happen in your company,” said Lavinsky.

“When it’s all said and done, the next few years are going to go by whether you maximize your business’s value or not. At the end of, say, 5 years, would you rather have a stable, attractive, polished business ready to sell for top dollar, or be left taking what you can get for what you have?”

Lavinsky also reminds entrepreneurs that they have the time to implement the strategies up until the day for selling their business finally arrives.

“You don’t have to do it all now!” he said. “Just add these elements I described to your vision of what you want your company to be, and keep your eye on it until the big day finally comes.”
