Web site design & development.
Whether you are looking for an online business card style site or an advanced content management system (CMS) backed web site, I can customise a solution to meet your needs and budget.
Content Management Systems (CMS)
I can develop you a site using a content management system so that you or your staff can easily update and add content and details to your web site. This is an ideal solution for anyone who wants the facility to easily change their product range, details and pricing, or keep their customers informed with news articles or customer testimonials. The possibilities are endless, but the solution always remains easy to use. Of course, if you do not wish to update your own web site then I can take care of that for you.
Why not make use of email as a fast efficient and highly cost effective way to communicate with your customers. Informing your existing and potential customers of your business news and latest offers can be a great way to increase custom. By using an email marketing system I can ensure that the correct message reaches the correct people on your behalf. They will be able to add or remove themselves from your mailing lists so you will not get a reputation for spamming customers and by integrating the system with your web site you can add to your overall internet presence.
Email, Domains & Hosting.
These are not the most interesting of subjects but they are important to your online presence. I can provide email that gives your business communications a professional image by using your domain name so you can have email in the form of name@company_name.co.uk. I can register domain names on your behalf with a variety of endings such as .com ,.co.uk and .org. either for immediate use on the internet or in order to secure your brand names from being acquired by others. And finally I can arrange hosted web space for your web site to live on the internet using a variety of services from the top companies in the hosting world. All these services ensure that your web site portrays your company in the professional manner that it deserves.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Once you have a web site you need to attract people to it. This can be done by using traditional advertising methods, but search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing are rapidly becoming the most likely tool that your customers will use to find a product or service. This is where search engine optimisation, or SEO for short, comes in to make sure that it is your web site that they find when they do an internet search. All the web sites that I design have SEO friendly features built in to them, but if you already have a web site then I may be able to add many of these search optimising features to it for you. I can also carry out work to ensure that your site is listed on many search sites, including all of the major search engines, and that they are crawling your site correctly for the content that you wish to be found. Services also include the creation of content and link building to aid SEO.
With the whole world becoming Internet connected even from devices like TV's and mobile phones, the last few years have seen a boom in social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. These services are not just for fun, they can be a valuable business tool and resource. They can be used to communicate with your customers and attract potential new ones to your company and your web site. If you have not got the time, expertise or inclination to set these and other services up and start tweeting and poking people, then I can take care of that for you. This is just one of the many ways that I can help you to increase your Internet presence and attract more visitors to your web site.
