Website Design, Hosting and Maintenance
To survive in today’s competitive online environment your website needs to be properly designed and structured, both on-page and ‘behind the scenes’. It should be user-friendly, have good content and be properly optimised to rank well in the search engines.
You also need your website to be listed as high up as possible in the search engines, otherwise you will be almost as invisible as if you didn’t have one at all. The world will not beat a path to your door if they don’t know where that door is!
If you are in business and you don’t have a website you are at a serious disadvantage. Your competitors could easily be getting the business that is rightly yours.
- Your website design should be fast-loading, easily-navigable and restful on the eye. Reading from a screen is a lot different than from a document, you shouldn’t be making it even harder by bad design elements.
- It should be accessible and readable from all devices. In a few years time hand-held devices (tablets, smartphones, etc.) will account for over 50% of all internet traffic.
- It should be structured from the outset to get noticed and be ranked highly by Google. Obviously there are many other search engines (like Yahoo, Ask and Bing), but get it right for Google and the rest will follow.
- Your website should be a showcase for your business, not the web designer’s creative genius! Your potential customers won’t wait while your bloat-heavy website loads into their browser, they’ll just click to the next one.
- I can create your website from scratch or I can evaluate your current site to maximise its potential. To work at its best your website should be optimised in three ways: visually, structurally and, most importantly, for the search engines.
