Our Love Affair with Yext

Goober Yext

In honor of our 1-Year Anniversary with Yext, here’s a post about how much we love them. As of February 1st, our company has had a service agreement with Yext for a full year. It has changed the way we run our business and the way we pitch new services to clients. Most importantly, it’s been an incredible asset to our clients.

This isn’t Paid Advertising I promise.

Ok, I got a little carried away there, but Yext truly has been an amazing service addition to Techno Goober. They offer a variety of services that fit right in with our robust web management offerings. Our clients (and our own web presence) have benefited greatly from our relationship with Yext.

If you aren't using @Yext, then your business could be suffering. The kicker? You might not even know. #goobertips Click To Tweet

Internet Privacy Practices for Businesses

Online Security is a must

As small businesses, it’s important for us to be conscious of the security needs of our clients and customers. As a web development company, in particular, we must always be thinking about how to maintain the privacy and security of our clients AND our clients’ clients.

Collecting Information

As a business, it is necessary to collect information about your client. This information can be used for a variety of purposes from leads to newsletters or even internal research. The most important thing that businesses must remember when collecting any information from clients is to collect only what you need and maintain transparency.

I Hate Contact Forms and Our Clients are Better Because of It!

Contact Us

Frank Payton, the Uber Goober at Techno Goober, shares his thoughts on contact forms after over 10 years developing websites one client at a time.  

Websites Generate Sales Leads

The core of Techno Goober lies in our ability to produce a quality website that produces leads. The most important reason to have a website is to have an online presence. That online presence lends credibility to your company or organization. It would be nice that your investment resulted in some return though right?

One of the methods for capturing leads from your website has always been the contact form. The goal of the contact form is for the user to fill it out. Then you receive it and contact them resulting in sales. Sounds pretty simple, but the flaws are undeniable.

Over time, I have come to despise this required form of lead generation, but my hatred has put our client’s websites in a better position because of it. 

Test contact forms regularly to ensure the emails are not going to Spam. #webdevelopment #goobertips Click To Tweet

How long does it take to create a website?

The short answer is 3-4 months.

The long answer is… as long as it takes.

Why does it take so long?

Web development takes a lot of work. Our projects run anywhere from 30 hours to 60 hours of work or more. That may not seem like three months of work, but we can’t do it all at once. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
