Grow your small business with a Google-friendly website

An amazing website can act as your full-time lead generation machine.

Websites optimized to show up on Google reach people where they are. When they search for your services, your website should be one of the first things they find. So many small businesses put off investing in a new website because they are worried about cost or return on investment.

Emerge has built countless personalized sites, including our own, that don’t require any expensive website development fees. This makes your site affordable, easy to use and primed for Google.

Other web design companies cut corners and leave out crucial steps that ensure your website shows up on Google and works well on mobile. Without a stellar website you could be missing out on leads every day. Call Emerge to get a consultation and expert advice at no charge. From there we can start building your new site at a price that works great for your small business.

Digital Marketing and Web Design Services for Alexandria, VA

If your marketing is the solar system, then your website is the sun that everything else orbits around.

Think about it, you can use email marketing, social media campaigns and paid ads to push people to your website.

Even print marketing materials can be used to promote your site. But if you don’t have the strong foundation of a good website, then all of your other efforts are pointless.

Your website can work when you’re busy. It gives potential customers a place to gain valuable information, request your services and learn more about your business.

A wowing web design with convincing content can be all it takes to turn a cold lead into a hot one. Once your optimized website pulls them in, it’s all up to your team to close the sale.

So how do you get your website to work for you? You need it to be searchable, scannable, and easy-to-use. Emerge can build a website that acts as a funnel for new users. With the right guidance your users will take that leap to the contact page. 

Emerge builds websites that are:

Google Friendly

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a combination of best practices designed to help your website rank higher on Google. This means ensuring your website is high-functioning enough to win Google’s approval.

Emerge handles the technical aspects like site speed and basic security measures. Every website project includes initial SEO work. This involves our team ensuring each of your page’s titles and descriptions on Google are written to get the most search traffic possible.

While initial SEO gives you a fighting chance to rank online, it is not guaranteed success. An ongoing SEO plan in the future can help you grow online against your competitors.


Mobile responsive

Do you ever open a website that was clearly never designed to work on mobile?

You’re constantly zooming in and out, things are cut off and it’s impossible to find what you need. Desktop-only sites are frustrating and can send customers running to your competitors. That is, if they ever reach your website in the first place.

Google is not a fan of sites that aren’t mobile responsive. In fact, it can tank where you rank.

Emerge makes sure your website adapts to fit desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile phones to reach all of your potential customers.

Packed with quality content

One of the most important things about your website are the words displayed on each page.

Your written content is going to make all the difference in how many people reach your website, how long they use it for and what they do while they’re there.

Emerge’s talented copywriters focus heavily on two things: SEO and conversions.

Our team weaves your industry’s most popular search terms throughout your website to help it show up on Google.

Once a user reaches your site, each page is written to engage and entice them. The copy catches their eye, holds their attention and encourages them to take that first action. With convincing content you can increase clicks, calls and contact form submissions.

Champions of your brand

Building an effective brand is integral to great marketing.

You have to fully map out your business’s purpose and goals. Emerge includes a user experience strategy session into each website project.

During our Discovery Session, you’ll get to share what makes your business tick and who your customers are. From there, Emerge creates a marketing strategy to inspire your website’s design and content.

Attractive and Appealing

Your website should capture the user’s attention, in a good way.

You’ve seen the sites that are overcrowded, outdated or strangely styled. But when you open a site with a clean, modern and interesting design it makes the right kind of statement.

Emerge has experienced designers who listen to your preferences to apply a web design perfect for your brand.

Allie, Sam, and Jonathan helped me make my very first professional website, and did an incredible job! Having a website built is one thing, but running, editing, and managing it is quite another. Their care and attention to making sure that I was comfortable and ready to take it over was stellar.
If your small business needs a website, the only team you should hire is Emerge Richmond. They led us through a discovery session that helped us vocalize our marketing needs and tailor our brand to our future customers. It was all based on what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. They're a top notch professional team & stayed in constant communication with us throughout the project's development life cycle.

From initial conversation to totally re-designed website, working with Anna, Jim, Jon and Patrick and the rest of the team from Key Web Concepts/Emerge has been a great experience. Having to meet virtually because of the pandemic was not a problem (we still have yet to meet in person). They came in on time and within the budget (important for a small non profit) and were very responsive as they led us through discussions about what we wanted for the new website. They continue to be responsive as questions arise about editing pages in Word Press. Great experience working with Key Web/Emerge.

Website design questions

How much does a website design cost?

The cost of web design depends on your company’s goals.

Your website design cost is determined on how many pages and features you need. A simple brochure website could need only need a few pages and would take less time to complete than an website that needs to sell multiple products online.

Emerge offers a discovery session to help you build what you need right away. This is a low-cost activity that helps you understand what matters most to your business so you can invest in the most efficient website possible.

What is a discovery session?

Do I have control of my website?

 Absolutely! You paid for it, so you deserve to have ownership of your website without any strings attached.

When your website is ready to launch, you will be trained on how to operate it so you can update your  website without having to depend on us. The training session will be recorded so you can refer back to it to refresh your memory.

If you are too busy or too uncomfortable making changes to your website, we will be available to help via phone or email.

Can you design websites for any industry?

Emerge has years of experience designing websites for many industries. 

From construction to hair salons, Emerge helps create a path to success with our discovery phase.  This activity helps us understand your brand and its industry to design a personalized website that matches your audience and goals.

What is a Discovery Session? →

How long will my website design take?

To be honest, it depends on a few factors:

  • How fast you can respond to us
  • The number of features you want on your website
  • The amount of pages you need for your site
  • Your ability to provide content (pictures and writing the website pages)

For small business owners, providing photos and written content can feel like a homework assignment.

That’s why we offer photo and copywriting services to help you get your website designed faster.

Schedule a consultation today to see how we can help create content for your website.

How do I get my website on Google?

Depending on your industry and services, there are tons of factors that come into play when you are trying to rank your website on search engines.

With Emerge, your website is at least designed to be Google-Friendly through initial search engine optimization (SEO).

If you’re going to spend money on your website, don’t you think your website should at least be ready for Google to see it?

While initial search engine optimization (SEO) is a boost to your website, it’s not a guarantee of first-page rankings. If companies promise you fast, first-page organic rankings for your website, please take caution, because not all that glitters is gold.
