Q&A

The best websites are those that deliver the right information to visitors when they want it - and as quickly as possible, irrespective of the device they are using.

The visitor should be able to tell in a moment exactly what you do and what's in it for them; typically you have less than five seconds to make the right impression before they leave.

A competent website looks clean and fresh and easily readable - remember that not all visitors have excellent vision. They must be easy to navigate with information where it should be - the fewer keystrokes the better.

Once they like what they see they have to be able download information, perhaps to get in touch with the minimum of effort. Alternatively, buying from you should be a simple task - and secure.

If you offer support, make sure it is easy to access, and if it is a chargeable service, make them feel they are getting value for money.

There are dozens of possible questions on this subject. Below I have listed the more immediate and essential ones to be getting on with. Before you work your way through them I'll say that all of this might seem like a lot of work, however it is mostly quite straight forward - because you know more than you might think you do!

I am happy to guide you through this process to ensure your success.:

1. Have you had a website of your own before? If so, do you have a Google analytics account?
2. Do you own a domain? Have hosting? Or are you starting from scratch?
2. Do you have content (text and images) prepared that you want to put on your new website? A logo/colour theme?
3. What does your business do - in your words? What makes it special?
4. What do you want your website to do for you and your business? Informational, contact, selling product? Start small, build up? Make a short list.
5. Can you identify and define your target audience?
6. Do you already use social media? Do you generate any business from your social media?
7. Are there three websites out there that you really like?
8. When do you want your website to be live?

My favourite part of this job is working with people - getting them on the ebusiness ladder and watching their success come from our joint efforts. This is because I know that success is always a team effort.

There were a number of factors in this decision. As I worked all over the world creating solutions to problems using local resources, I realised I was essentially working for myself, completing targets and projects for someone mostly un-involved in my efforts. The move was a natural progression.

You will see from my testimonials that I fully engage in my projects to ensure their success. I help my customers understand the whole process. If they choose to manage the website themselves, I instruct them on how the website was built, the facilities within, what to change to get the best out of it and, of course, how to back it up. To minimise cost of the build, I will use free of cost plugins and templates where possible. If you have specialist needs I will investigate these prior to confirming a price for the project.

Today's Internet is a complex and noisy place in which you strive to be noticed.

Search engines also offer advertising mechanisms at a price. How do you know which is best for you?

Social media is not just about sharing what you had for lunch or arbitrary opinions. For business it is a very positive way of connecting directly with your customers, helping them with issues and being seen to support their needs. This positive approach in turn has been shown to drive more business. It prevents arbitrary and uncontrollable reviews online from becoming the experience barometer for prospective clients. Through appropriate use of social media you can manage and support the reality of your business. Let us help you to achieve better results.
