Career tips What every freelancer’s website must have to get new business By Guest Writer Last updated Feb 22, 2023 Danny Matthew’s simple website design is proving to give his business results Danny Matthews, the founder of Danny & Co , a Cirencester-based branding and design studio for small businesses, thinks he knows a thing about website performance. He is so confident in this area he says he can visit any website and tell you whether it performs or not in less than a second. Be informed, be Freelancer Informed! | Freelance Informer “It’s all down to the first line of text,” says Matthews. According to Mathews if you visit a website that starts by telling you how many years of experience they have or why they are the best at what they do, your “brain recognises that the message isn’t about you and you leave.” “So the biggest blooper of websites I see is not putting the visitor first.

Any weblinks that can take a prospective client to the project are an added bonus.
