What makes a great website?
A great website needs to feel authentic. Real photos, genuine content. If you are UK pest control company it is pointless having stock photos from America - destroys your credibility. Having the "right" words in the Metal Description, Metal Title, Page Names, Domain name all of these will help your website come up in Google searches.

What do you love most about your job?

(To be strictly honest they are often very shy about revealing that fact, but they cannot help slip the stories about new customers, and new markets. )
What inspired you to start your own business?

Links - Link Analysis of Your Competitors
Some people are aware of the importance of links to your website, I can tell you where your competitors are getting their links from. Good links can help improve your visibility in Google. Knowing where your competitors are getting their links from can be a good start.
Marketing help can boost your visibility in Google. Taking notes and translating those in to website pages. Editing text to make it more search engine friendly.
From business cards to pads to leaflets, from creating artwork through to getting the print produced and delivered, so your company logo matches from your website, business cards through to van livery.
Many of my website have benefited from my photography, but I know my limitations and where there are more challenging subjects I have good relations with professional photographers who know how to take a photo to the next stage.
From writing the script to getting it produced and hosted. I have much experience in this area. Most videos are too long and too boring.
Many people claim to be website designers, or build a website yourself in just a few minutes. Turns out that most people actually do not know what works in Google and what does not. How to create pages correctly, how to code those pages. - A website can look like a website, but if it is not built correctly that will be penalised in Google. if you have a lot of pages and have spent good money with a website company, I have provided a report for the website owner to take back to the current developer and point out what they have missed out.
Mobile Phone Friendly
Many people come to a website via a mobile phone. All the websites Miraquel builds and has done for the last 4 years have been mobile phone friendly. That is to say one website which changes shape to fit the viewing device. This is the preferred option in the eyes of Google. Most people will get to any website via Google in one form or another. Also known in the trade as a "responsive website" because it changes shape.
Search Engine Optimisation SEO
Search engine optimisation (SEO) should be built in from the start. From the domain name, and then to every element. You would be mad to accept a house builder offering to add the foundations in a few months time so why would a business accept adding SEO after the event? I have helped businesses retrofit SEO but it is the wrong way round. It can help for certain but it seems an odd way to go about building a website. Not applying SEO to a website is a great way of keeping the cost down for the developer as it save a considerable amount of time and it will only be a few months down the road after they have been paid that it will come to light that there has been no SEO. SEO is applied to all the websites Miraquel builds
The truth is that many small business owners do not either have the time, or inclination to write the copy for their website. Solution, I have written the words on most websites I have built. They have then read the words and suggested amendments. This approach has lead to the rapid development of websites. To get a feel for the words I have spent time on the phone or meeting up before writing the words.
