As a small business or startup it’s critical you have a website that works. Speak to me about getting an online presence to be proud of
Services to promote your business online
Without doubt, a website is the most cost effective way to promote your business or service online. As an always-on marketing tool your website needs to do some basic things really well:
- Load quickly. Pages need to load in 2 or 3 seconds or less
- Be intuitive and simple to use. A clean layout that adapts to any device means users can find key information quickly
- Have clear, quality content. Your website needs to be read by humans and search engines. Poorly structured content will impact findability
- Be findable. All content, images and code must be optimised for voice, Local and Google search
- Use Googles free business services. Configured with key schema data to promote your business to Google users
Getting these things sorted properly will get an online presence that works for you. I offer a range of web design and build services to address all these areas of website design.
I can improve your online profile
I know what it takes to set up and run effective online presence. I make, manage and optimise websites for local businesses; my web design services include everything necessary to get an online presence to be proud of.
You might think that if you work with a smaller web design services firm you won’t get the quality or service you’d naturally associate with a bigger agency. That’s not the case. I don’t have the overheads of a large agency and if you’re doing a project with me, you know it’s me working on it and not the latest intern.
Responsive web design
Most searches are now performed on mobile devices so its important that your website adapts to suit any modern device. I design websites for all screen sizes so your content is crisp and clear regardless of the device being used.
I pay attention to performance and always test, test, test to make sure you get a quality online presence which truly reflects the quality and professionalism of your business. Read more about responsive web design.
I have over 12 years experience in WordPress software. If you want your site converted into WordPress so you can edit it yourself, or some help to improve your existing WordPress site – I can help. I know the product inside out and whatever your issue is, I’ll most likely be able to help.
No more than ever, search optimisation is a critical facet of your website’s performance. People use computers, mobile devices and even digital assistants to search for products and services, and your website needs to be optimised for them all.
Your content structure and website code all effect how well search engines rank your site. I follow Google best practice to enhance your findability for all search approaches. Read about my approach to Search engine optimisation.
Website management and care plans
Keeping your website up to date and optimised will help it perform better. If you’re too busy to manage your website, I can do it for you.
My care plans cover updating content, performance monitoring and security upgrades to software. I’ll do the necessary to keep it running smoothly without any hassle for you.
Google free business services
Google’s free business service will improve your profile in local search, if it’s set up properly. I can help you claim your listing and make sure the profile matches your preferred search terms, business specifics and contact information. It’s important to get that right. Google will do the rest.
Digital health check
How fast is your website? Is software up to date? Is Google reporting any errors and do you know how many visitors you’ve had this month compared to last? A review of your website can highlight potential issues and allow you to fix them before they become a problem. See what’s involved in a digital health check.
