what it is you want your website to achieve is the first step in designing a sucessful website.
Building a website for something which people are not looking for can, and probably will, be a waste of time and money.
There are numerous tools available on the internet which you can use to find out what people are searching for online, such as this keyword tool (opens in a new window). The key to having a sucessful online presence is all about finding the keywords which have the largest potential audience based on the number of people searching for your product or service using that phrase.
As an example, let's say you own a bakery. The number of people who search for 'bakery' online is very low, but the number of people who search for 'wedding cake' is high. So to get the best results for your business, it would be advisable to either focus your entire website or at least a specific web page on wedding cakes. Then the visitor you have on your site has found what they are looking for and they are now a potential customer.
By optimizing your site this way, you are giving yourself the best chance to achieve the best results for your business.
Part of my Web Design service includes research on what search terms people are likely to search for online and determines what information you should include on your site to cater for this.
Attractive Professional Design
Before you design your website you must first figure out what you want your visitors to do. Do you want them to leave their contact details, send you an email or pick up the phone and call your business for more information?
Deciding at the beginning, what you want your visitors to do is essential for designing a sucessful website.
If you want your visitors to take a specific action, then every aspect of your website must further that objective. I designs websites that are geared towards getting the highest number of people to take the action you want them to.
FREE Website Health Check
Is your website under-performing?
Unhappy about the levels of traffic being recieved from the search engines?
Ranking low in the search engine results?
Your website loads up slowly?
If you can answer YES to any of the above questions, it sounds like you website could do with a service!
Just like everything else, from time to time your website needs a service, or a refresh, to make sure everything is working correctly, and optimized. Your site can have a FREE Website Healthcheck, just click here and enter your details.
I will evaluate your current site, and give you a free report whether your site required a service or not. I will also include a quotation for undertaking the service with my report.
Once you have decided to have a website designed and published, you need to have it hosted.
There are a lot of hosting companies available on the internet, some cheaper than others, but remember, you get what you pay for. If you want the most cutting edge hosting available, with the most secure connections, you're not going to get it for £2.99 per month.
I can locate and setup your web hosting for you, if you are unsure of what to do. It will be registered in your name, and you will have full access and control.
The price for this will vary depending on what type of hosting you are after, what features you need, and the level of encyption (if required).
Domain Name Registration
Once you have decided to have a website designed and published, you need to ensure that you get the best domain name you possibly can, to achieve the desired results.
I can register your domain name for you, and keep it renewed. I can do this for £25.00 per year (for .co.uk or .org.uk) or £50.00 per year(.com, .net or .org)
