Get a simple plan to build and grow your online business. It’s free! 

When your small business has a solid, professional website, it feels like everything is right in the world.

You have a place to invite your prospects, and a way to build interest in all the products and services your business offers.

The bonus? Your website is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s your always-on sales force, ready to move your visitors from prospects to customers.

Tell me your website challenges

What’s that you say? Your site isn’t living up to those lofty standards?

Here’s a secret: mine isn’t either. Every time I visit these pages I see things I want to change.

That’s the beauty of websites. They can always be tweaked and improved.

I’ll be working behind the scenes to make mine better in the months ahead. Because a website is never “perfect,” and it’s never really “done.”

Share your website challenges here

Today, I want to hear from you. What element of your website are you working on right now? What do you want to improve? Let me know in the comment section.

10 thoughts on “What’s Your Biggest Website Frustration Right Now?

  1. Hi Pamela,

    My biggest frustration is that I don’t have a live website!

    I am now trying to get my logo “set”. I created it in a bunch of text boxes
    with an image pasted in also. I know, pretty lame. But not having the right
    tools, that’s what I’ve done. And now the big challenge is to find someone
    who can put it into a clear jpg so I can use it both digitally and in print.

    Can you direct me? Graphic designers don’t want the job, so who do you think
    could help?


    • Hi Kate,
      I’m willing to help you with your logo.
      I see that Pamela will put you in touch with me.
      As a side note, I build my own websites all the way from scratch.
      I don’t really like “WordPress” for the type of sites that I build.
      I’ve used WordPress quite extensively in the past but now I’m back to using XSitePro.
      By the way Pamela, I’ve signed up for your “Brown Bag”, the “Setting Up Your Website the Smart and Easy Way” course and the “Design and marketing tips”.
      I am a firm believer in learning as much as I can.

  2. Hi Kate,

    I know lots of designers read this blog. If you’ll give me permission to share your email address privately, I’ll be happy to connect you with anyone who’d like to help.

    Calling all designers: this doesn’t sound like a difficult project. Do you have time in your schedule to help Kate?

    If so, just leave a comment and let me know. I’ll share your email address with her privately, and you can take it from there!

  3. that My opt-in box in BELOW the fold–and not very effective..because no on “opt-in” My site also doesn’t effectively showcase my work—it was designed when my portfolio was limited…now that I’ve done more varied work–my site doesn’t showcase very well

    • Those cool graphics at the top just take up too much space, don’t they? Good luck getting it sorted out, Janeen. Maybe you can figure out a way to move it up a bit so it’s more visible.

  4. That it’s not optimized for key words and search. My designer did not have this skill set and I’m trying to figure it out. I’m going to create a website for my neighborhood association using Site Set Up Kit. I am hoping that I will learn by doing and that it will make me more comfortable with my own site so I don’t have to rely on the designer. I’m also trying to understand Google Analytics better. I have bought the SAMS book and plan to dive in. Also, need to start the next phase…blogging/newsletter to promote business/website. I think I know what to do but it all takes time and before you know it, another month or two has gone by. I have to trust that all my investment in our marketing plan will pay off :). Some days, it’s great. Other days, it can feel daunting!

    • One small step at a time, Nancy. It will happen! Once you’ve established these things you can build on them … but establishing them is daunting.

      The good news is that they don’t have to be perfect. Everything can be improved over time (well, unless it’s a brochure and your printer has just delivered 20,000 printed copies 😉 ).

  5. My biggest frustration was dealt with this week: my site is now mobile responsive.

    I converted my site to a new theme and tweaked my design along the way. After customising the theme, I needed to change the layout of some pages so they looked good on different device sizes.

    I also discovered that Android and iOS devices don’t recognise telephone numbers in the same way. I addressed that this morning.
