Website Design A professionally designed website will give your business a professional image
OK, so we've had the chat and you're now raring to get your business online. What happens next? If you have an existing hosting and domain name provider, we'll need the details from you. If not, don't worry! We can arrange and manage all your hosting and domain needs! Now, there are four stages to our website design service:
We work on some design ideas for the look and feel and layout of your new website. We email them over to you and work with your feedback until we reach a design you are happy with.
3. Add Content
This is where you come into play! You are the best person to tell your audience what you do or sell. Send through all the text and images (if you don't have images we can source them for you), let us know what text you want on what page and we'll do the rest.
4. Go Live
The most exciting bit of the project! We've checked it, tested it and now it's ready to release it out into the world. Now it's time to tell everyone about your awesome new website.
If you've opted for a CMS (Content Management System where you can edit and add the content yourself), we offer initial support to help you get to grips with managing the content of the site yourself. We're always just a phone call away.
There are different types of websites to choose from and it depends on what you want from your website and what type of product or service you offer.
One Page Website
We can create one page websites if all you need is your contact details and a brief description of what you do. This is great if your budget is slim and a great way to start building your online presence.
Static HTML Website
Sounds more techie than it actually is. This is a multi-page website where you want the standard content of a website but don't see yourself wanting to make many edits throughout the year.
CMS stands for Content Managed System which basically means you, the client can edit and add content yourself anytime, anywhere. If you have a portfolio of work, want a blog site or regularly update clients with news and events, then this is the website for you!
If you want to sell products online then this is the option for you. Our online stores are PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant making them safe for users to shop online whilst also protecting you.
OK so when you buy a car you don't want the hassle of carrying out all the servicing and maintenance yourself. After all if something goes wrong you end up with a car that doesn't work. Websites are the same. You don't want to be spending your time searching for hosting providers, creating databases, finding the best FTP client etc, when you can have us do all that for you.
We can provide 99.9% uptime guarantee, set up all your email addresses for you, secure domain names, create databases...pretty much all the things that you shouldn't have to worry about which allows you to focus on running your business.
8 Reasons To Have A Website
- About 80% of consumers use the internet to search for products and services they need before they make a purchase.
- A professionally designed website will give your business a professional image.
- Unlike print ads which quickly become outdated, your website can provide current information and news.
- A website helps you reach out to a wider audience.
- If you don't have a website your customers may look elsewhere.
- Your competitors will have a website, why don't you?
- A professionally designed website will rank better in a search engine rather than a free DIY website.
- While social media is a valuable marketing asset, not everyone is signed up to sites like Facebook or Twitter. A website is accessible anytime to anyone online.
