Good design simplifies complicated concepts, especially on the web. We build your site to accommodate all users by limiting your file/page sizes so they can be viewed quickly by users with slower modems as well as those with faster connections.
Once your site is up and running, you should keep the content fresh to avoid drifting down the rankings. Without constant attention, websites turn into cobweb sites. We can help with updates or provide a Content Management System (CMS) so that you can update the site yourself with new content.
If your site is constantly changing then you'll need to be thinking about backups, in case of problems on the hosts servers, or in case of attack by hackers.
Web site security isn't a switch that you turn on and off. It's a scale that you move up and down.
There are some very basic things that you can do (and which surprisingly most sites forget about) to protect your site from hackers. There are also some advanced principles that can be applied to make your site watertight.
Spamming, cross-site scripting and SQL injection are the more common forms of attack and we tackle these first. Then we consult with you to find the best and appropriate level of security for your site.
A good looking website isn't enough to win business. Once your site is running smoothly, you'll want the world to know about it.
You need to be easily found. With the right approach we can help you get higher up the search engine rankings so that potential customers see you on page one of their search.
Don't forget to use the more traditional marketing approaches too: put your website address on everything you do — ads, brochures, letterheads, business cards and other materials.
Do I need a website?
Well, your website is available for all the world to see all of the time. You don't have to be there in person and you can sell almost any product or service online.
If you need something to:
• Be your shop window
• Promote your corporate image
• Provide information
• Enhance customer service
Then the answer is yes!
How do people find my website?
Most people online use only a handful of the major search engines to find what they're looking for. We can develop a search engine marketing strategy for you to help your site find it's way to the top of the rankings.
Getting to the top of those rankings is a black art. We have some firm opinions about what works and what doesn't. For instance, we find that one of the most reliable techniques is simply putting the relevant keywords into the content of the page whilst preserving readability.
We can help.
