Keep an eye on the content
Content is the most important part of you website so be very careful while creating the content. Not everyone is gifted with the creative skills if you are well and good if to then you can consider hiring a writer for the purpose. See their previous work and go through the digital copies they have already written to know about their writing quality. But most importantly you can first go for a sample text by asking them to prepare a small portion of your website as it is more important that their work should align with your requirements. Hire them only if you find the content engaging and screen at least 3-4 good candidates before choosing the right one.
Good website content should establish your identity with authority but without giving you the identity of arrogant salesman. The content should be short, sweet and to the point and most importantly knowledgeable. Audience like the content that enlightens them on a specific matter. Identifying and touching the pain points of your clients- not only touching but soothing them with solution- would be a sure shot policy to earn some positive points and few immediate conversions too but the major gain is to attract the loyalty of the audience that will help you in the long run.
Other things to take care of

Besides, you don’t have to start pitching the sales as so as you make acquaintance with every person of the community. Allow the things to take the natural route. You might tell them about your services while speaking on the business. Timing and presentation matters the most here.
