These days there are many different ways to promote your business online, with Facebook pages, Twitter, Blogs, and even companies offering build-it-yourself websites for free. All of these options are fine and have their place in the online world of promotion, but not entirely suitable for all people. That’s where we can help.
Based in Upminster, Essex, we specialise in creating professional, functional, attractive and search engine friendly websites for small businesses and sole traders.
Small Businesses and Sole Trader website design
Our focus on the smaller business owners allows us to be personal, and easy to deal with. Rather than taking on huge projects at a high fee, we can offer a quick turnaround and ongoing support at a low cost.
All of our websites are professionally constructed using WordPress, which is a database driven content management system, and we use certain criteria within the construction process to assist your new website in being found on Google.
Once constructed, and entirely optional, having a website built with WordPress allows our clients the opportunity to add news, images and information themselves, from their own laptop, tablet or even a smart phone.
Once we have spoken to you and agreed a plan of how you’d like your website to look and what pages you require, we set about building the site. All our websites are custom designed according to your companies’ needs. We will work with you throughout the design process giving you plenty of opportunities to provide input into your site. We recommend you use high quality images to make your site look professional, and if you don’t have any, we can organise professional stock images to reflect your business.
It is critical that your website reaches your target market and we can offer services that are tailor-made for small businesses to help you to achieve that, whilst you carry on running your business. We will work with you to reach your audience creating an eye catching and professional web site design, whilst working within your budget constraints.
Whether you already own your domain name, or would like us to buy and secure one for you, we can set up a website on your desired domain name. We offer advice on which names are best, which are available, and whether or not it’s worth spending extra on a premium name that is already owned. Your domain name will be promoted by you, so it needs to be memorable for your clients and prospective new customers. There is no use having a long winded domain name with lots of hyphens if people can’t remember it, that means word of mouth promotion is almost impossible. We have plenty of experience when it comes to buying the right domain name, so if you don’t own one yet, we can help you.
We think that a professional domain name email account helps promote your business so much more than a free email from Yahoo or Gmail. If you pass someone your email address and it includes your domain name, clients are far more likely to take a look at your website too. We can provide email accounts for you, and your additional staff if required.
Web hosting is required for all websites and email accounts, it’s where the files are stored, on a server connected online. Without web hosting, there is no website.
We offer web hosting with all of the sites we build, and with our monthly fee we also include:
- Fast Private Servers
- Ongoing support
- Free text and image changes to existing web pages
- Security updates to stop you being hacked
- Email account(s)
- Domain name
