Welcome, dear fellow tradesmen, to a tale of laughter, chaos, and lessons learned the hard way. Today, I’d like to share the epic saga of why entrusting your beloved niece with the task of building a website for your trades business might not be the wisest decision. Brace yourselves for a rollercoaster ride of comedy and mishaps! This is a true/ fictional story.

Chapter 1: The “Tech-Savvy” Niece:

Picture this: my niece, Lily, armed with her flashy laptop, an array of colourful stickers, and an unshakeable confidence in her tech skills. With dreams of creating a magnificent digital masterpiece, she eagerly volunteered to design a website for my humble trades business. What could possibly go wrong?

Chapter 2: The Dazzling Design:

With boundless enthusiasm, Lily presented her dazzling design ideas. Think psychedelic colour schemes, animated GIFs of dancing tools, and a font size that could only be deciphered by ants armed with magnifying glasses. I realized then that my dreams of a sleek and professional website were about to be shattered. When we build a custom website, we always make sure that it’s “on brand” represents your business in the best way possible. 

Chapter 3: The Glorious Typos:

Bless her heart, Lily had an undeniable talent for typos. Despite my painstaking efforts to proofread her work, every page was riddled with grammatical blunders and misspelled words. “Toolz” became “Toads” and “Services” turned into “Serbices.” My trades business suddenly seemed like a comical circus act rather than a reliable service provider. You might be a tradesperson, but you will also need to look professional. We proofread every website to make sure it is error free. 

Chapter 4: The Unintentional Popularity Boost:

To my surprise, Lily’s website attracted an unexpected surge of visitors, though not for the reasons I had hoped. It turned out that the “Contact Us” button was mistakenly linked to a video of sneezing pandas, and the “Pricing” page led to an endless loop of adorable kitten gifs. Who knew that hilarity could inadvertently boost website traffic? User Experience (UX) is one of the most important factors when you want new clients from your website.

Chapter 5: The Accidental Art Gallery: The Arty Website for My Trades Business

In an attempt to showcase my previous projects, Lily added a photo gallery. Unfortunately, she failed to compress the images, resulting in a website that could rival the Louvre in terms of loading times. Visitors had ample opportunity to contemplate the meaning of life while waiting for a single picture to appear. Patience is indeed a virtue. P.s. Did you know that the mobile loading speed of your website determines your rankings in search engines?

Chapter 6: The Final Straw: How Not to Build a Website for My Trades Business

Despite the comedy of errors, I held onto a glimmer of hope that Lily’s creation could be salvaged. That was until I received an email from a potential client who had stumbled upon the website. The email read, “Your website is hilarious! Can I hire you to build a clown-themed bathroom?” That’s when I decided it was time for a professional intervention. The audience was off! You have to target people who are interested in the services you offer right now. We can help with that!

Conclusion: Why I Will Never Again Trust My Niece to Build a Website for My Trades Business

While my niece’s intentions were pure, the chaos that ensued from allowing her to build a website for my trades business was nothing short of side-splitting. From a typo-ridden wonderland to unintentional panda and kitten festivals, it was a wild ride. I’ve since enlisted the help of a professional web designer, and my trades business is flourishing in the online realm. Remember, dear readers, sometimes it’s best to leave certain tasks to the experts. And Lily? Well, she’s found her calling in the world of stand-up comedy.
