I have an ongoing need for Web Designers.
My site, http://www.geercom.com , turns up in the top five in Google for
the following three keyword phrases: technology writer, technology
journalist and technical journalist.
However, I only get a few conversions a year - people calling or
e-mailing to inquire about my (writing) services.
I want to keep the features and strategies that keep the site that high
up in the search results while getting a design that will get people to
contact me about hiring me as a professional writer.
When applying to the e-mail address given here (do not call without an
appointment), use a subject line that makes it clear your message is
You need to have done multiple sites for writers and they need to be
able to tell me that they experienced an increase in inquiries/business
as a result of the design you provided for them.
More details on contact.
Re: I need on-going applications from Web Designers
Your site could use a redesign, but I think the main problem is the text
on the index page. It's very weak for a writer and doesn't inspire any
confidence in your abilities. I suggest you work on that before you go
hiring someone to do a redesign.
As for your search engine ranking, I believe the most common phrase for
what you do is "technical writer" and so I don't think those other
phrases bring you many visitors.
