Maybe you have considered using a ‘template’ based provider like WIX, Weebly, Website Builder, SquareSpace or similar which would allow you to build your own website, however while these websites are cheap to get started, the true cost is in the LOST OPPORTUNITY for your website to rank well in search results, attract visitors, and convert them into new customers. What makes it so difficult for these websites to rank well is the lack of knowledge in using all the intricate elements (headlines, text, images, image names, alt tags, links, keyword density, etc.) that can impact organic search engine ranking and the clunkiness of these templates often causes slow loading speed, higher bounce rates, lower conversion rates, and a lack of opportunity to optimize individual pages, costing you exposure to potential new business customers. It’s almost like going through the effort of designing and printing business cards but keeping them on your desk.

I would highly recommend her to anyone.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

I can always count on her to come up with a creative solution to a problem and she has helped me double my online sales. She is responsive, reasonably priced, and has a warm demeanor that makes a special working relationship.

“Hi Scarlet,… Guess what? I sold about 16 Yanmar machines overseas worth over $——– because of the website you did and the great search engine optimization,…..The other day a customer told me that he spent about 20 minutes on the site because he liked it so much. I remember when I started the site my Dad thought it was the biggest waste of money he had seen and it took about 2 years before he liked the idea. He really likes it today though.”

The first time I met with Scarlet, I knew that she completely understood the image I was attempting to create with my website. Although discouraged against using black and white images by other website artists, Scarlet was not afraid to experiment with my ideas. After our first meeting, she responded most promptly with the first “draft” of my website, and she had a remarkable creative talent for visualizing what I described to her in our initial meeting. Her maintenance of the website and response to continued changes and updates to the website has been remarkable. I would highly recommend her services for website design, hosting, maintenance, photography, and other creative concerns involving this form of marketing.

It was our lucky day when we were referred to Media Focus from another one of Scarlet’s satisfied clients. We were totally ready to have our current website taken to a higher level, and Scarlet’s performance certainly didn’t disappoint! From our initial meeting over a year ago to our present working relationship, we have been impressed with her professionalism, creativity, expertise and prompt attention to our needs and details. Being in advertising and marketing for years, I had some definite ideas for image and content, and Scarlet listened and respected my input. Combining my contribution with her know-how, she was able to execute the project beautifully. She is extremely knowledgeable on search engines and how to position a website with keywords that will give it maximum visibility. After all you can have the most sophisticated website in the country, but if people can’t find you, it is of no value! We have had new patients on a regular basis come to us as a result of our website, and we are grateful to Scarlet for such a professional and effective website that has given us great results.

When hiring Scarlet & MediaFocus, I came with a pre-conceived design that demanded customization & specialties’. Scarlet & her team accepted the challenge, researched the issues and presented solutions that enhanced what we were looking for within the budget we requested. There is a definite contender in the local web market that I have already recommended to other companies. MediaFocus.

By working with her for better Search Engine Optimization, we have continuous visits to our web site and more business. For us, this has been much more rewarding than placing ads in magazines.
