You’re Blowing Your One Chance to Make a Great First Impression
Think about this: Is your website a Walmart greeter or a Nordstrom shoe salesperson?
Your website has to be more than just a pretty face in cyberspace.
It’s a terrible idea to think that all your website needs to do is to look good. It is crucial that you optimize it in such a way that it attracts potential clients, impresses them, and gives them a memorable experience.
No matter how much of an eye-candy your website is, if it is not doing its job then you’re no worse without it.
Beyond a nice looking homepage, a website is the world’s window to your business. A great website should both be attractive and interactive. It encourages people to interact with you and, ultimately, to do business with you.
Fingerprint Marketing strives to create that perfect balance between aesthetics and online visibility to maximize your business’s market potential.
We’re also experts at all of the confusing back-end stuff like SEO, responsive design, navigation, integration, and e-commerce (is your head exploding yet?)
Here at Fingerprint Marketing you can rest assured that after we’re done with you, you’ll have website worth showing the whole world to. Best of all is that you’ll get more from your website than you’ve ever expected without the extra effort.

Branding & Appearance
Your website IS the fingerprint of your business. It is one of the easiest ways that your customers will find and learn about you. Your site has to be unique. It has to make a connection between you and your clients. It must clearly communicate your message in a way that is easy-to-understand and yet compels your visitors to take action. With your website, you are in control, if you’re convincing enough, you could practically make them do anything.
At Fingerprint Marketing, we mercilessly kill the boring stuff, bury the cookie-cutter crap, and burn the blah-blah. You need a website that is the perfect fingerprint match to you, your company, and your message… and that’s exactly what you’re going to get.
Get In, Get Out
People visit your website because they have a problem and they want it solved. Thus, your website needs to show that you have what it takes in the shortest time possible. 8 seconds! That is all you have. Even a professional bank robber can’t get rich in such a short period of time.
You have so much to tell, and you need to do it fast! Your website must take your viewers hostage in very short order or they’ll escape and run right to your competitor.
We know how to capture them so they not only see you but they “feel” you… who you are, what you do, and most importantly, what you can do for them.
The Down & Dirty
User Experience & Speed
Even if you’re the most highly skilled hitman on the planet and have tons of happy customers, they’ll stab you right in the back and hire the other guy if your website is slow or the navigation sucks.
Nobody, and we mean nobody, tolerates a slow or poorly designed website. Everyone knows what they want and the last thing they’d want to do is wait for it. Look, there’s a ton of cat videos we wanna watch and if your website is keeping us from doing that, you’re going to jail!
Go Mobile or Go Home
How to Lose Half Your Loot
Any website not able to adapt to mobile users can be described with one word, “criminal.” In fact, 51% of people who are casing your joint are doing it from their smartphone or tablet…. 51% – that’s more than half (obvious deduction, we know) and that number is
What’s scarier is that Google wouldn’t think twice to trash your website if it doesn’t adjust to mobile phones soon! And believe me when I say that the last thing you’d want to do is make an enemy of Google search bots. That police force has all kinds of ways to incarcerate your virtual real estate.
(PS. We love you Google)
The geeks at Fingerprint Marketing will make your mobile site sing like a bird (those geeks, and we love them too, call this “responsive” and “optimized’ but we’re just gonna keep it real simple for now).
Create Some Razzle Dazzle
Engagement and Content
We know that your site has to be visually stunning to command attention. But how do you keep potential customers on your website so they can get to know, like, and trust you – 3 critical things they must FEEL before they’ll pull the trigger and shoot at the Buy Button?
Simple. Show them quality. Interesting stuff. Entertaining stuff. Offer them something that will brighten up their day. In this digital world, it’s called “content” and it comes in the form of words, images, voices, videos, etc. It is crucial that you also have something that sells and not just tells. (Oh, and if you don’t know the difference between content and sales copy, don’t worry – that’s not a crime around here!)
For most business owners, creating content and copy is the harshest sentence that can be handed down. It’s pure torture to produce regular blogs, reports, videos, eBooks, social media posts, sales letters, ads, landing pages, and other compelling words that will wow the crowd and keep them engaged.
But here’s some really, really, good news and it might come as a surprise to you. There are good people in this world (some who work for Fingerprint!) that LOVE to create content. Don’t believe me? Well, you should. They find it a delight to sit in a 6’ x 9’
cell room, with nothing but a computer and some caffeine and crank out content that looks and sounds like it came straight from YOU! How do they do that? We have no clue. And we don’t ask. We feed them great food and delicious drinks then, boom! A few hours later tons of content is staring us in the face. As long as it works, we don’t ask.
The Getaway Car
Search Engine Optimization (a.k.a. Making sure people can find you from Google and Bing)
Imagine this: you’ve just succeeded with the greatest bank heist in history after years of planning. Jacked on adrenaline and carrying your big bags o’ cash, you run out the door to join your partner-in-crime who is waiting in the getaway car. You turn left. None. You look to the right. Hmmm. Did you partner just abandoned you? Or is it just hard to find it? You and your partner were so good in making sure that no one would find your getaway car, that you ended losing it yourself. Still wondering where your white sedan ended? There are only 6.8* million white cars on the road so why can’t you find it?
Do you see the point? Perfect content is useless if it’s just a copycat of existing ones out there. That trail of evidence must lead straight back to you… and unlike a criminal, leaving this revealing evidence is a good thing!
(*That “6.8 million white cars” thing is legit… we looked it up!)
