Meet Your Local Website Design & SEO Consultant

Website design, digital marketing, search engine optimization SEO, search engine marketing, and online marketing are all those skills I would have never developed, learned and mastered provided I had never decided to start my own business that required online presence and a website. 

Digital Marketing Consultant, Saskatoon
Online Marketing Consultant

Hi, my name is Saqib Irfan.

I’ve been designing websites for small business for nine years now but the first four years were a nightmare!

My clients were being held to ransom by low service level, high ongoing rates, broken platforms and all that without any relationship.

 

In 2012 I decided to change all that. I was done with the norms and wanted to blaze the trail for small business owners who (like myself) could not afford $10,000 or more on a website.

I have successfully challenged the industry and opposite to how it has been all these years. Although I am still on a mission, I am in a better place.

Long story short, I introduced a better way for Small Canadian business, to manage run and afford websites by launching: WebsiteDepartment.ca

My trusted web techie and I developed a website building platform that enables us to craft beautiful, easy to navigate and manage websites that are remarkably affordable and profitable for you.

We save Store Anything Fast and Easy in Saskatoon, $12,000 and we could save you the same plus more on our ongoing website costs. All are joking aside!

What I believe in

My Website Design Philosophy

Let’s declare it that you build a website to generate more qualified traffic that will buy your products and services. 

The website design approach I take is simple and has worked wonders for a number of Small Businesses, just like yours, achieve that goal by implementing three key basic digital marketing elements:

 

  • Generate Targetted Traffic 
  • Increase Conversion Rate (CRO)
  • Grow Customer Base
We All Know This Fact, Traditional Websites Are Dead

What You Need In Business Today

Yes, they are. The website now is just like the salesperson of the person.

The website has become an inbound lead generation platform which has a sole purpose to score and delivers high quality leads for your business.

Why hire website design consultant
Why I started another Website Design & SEO Company? Don’t we already have several digital marketing agencies out there offering same services? 

It all started back in 2007 when I had an online business plan and needed a website built for that business project. 

Just like what anyone would do, I called a couple of local website design companies.

I soon realized there were two types of web design agencies:

 

  • Professional Website Design Companies who charged tens of thousands of dollars for a website project. 

  • Small Website Company which is a one-man show and operated by someone who has done a crash course on website design and outsources most of the web development work to overseas. 
When I decided to build an online business

3 Major Challenges I Faced

  • #1 Challenge | Affordability I did not have thousands of dollars to invest just in a website project.
  • #2 Challenge - High RiskSmall business website companies had no credibility. No big firms had worked with them and their own websites were not functional.
  • #3 Challenge - Digital Marketing ConsultationNo website design company, be it the professional or small one, offered any digital marketing consultation. My whole business idea was to generate traffic and no one talked about it.
Steps I Took To Overcome Challenges:

MY AHA Moment!

I dropped the idea of online business and enrolled in website design and digital marketing courses. 

I figured this was I will be able to design a website at a reasonable rate, market it and also I will be in a position to help other entrepreneurs and small business owners facing similar challenges.
