SEO & Web Design
Commonly, the budget for a new website is primarily spent either on technical features ( spinning pictures etc.) or fantastic graphics or maybe a bit of both. You will probably want these features, but what about making sure that the copy writing is really compelling and takes account of the ‘on page optimisation’ required to get your site easily found on the search engines? What calls to action will you use to ensure visitors actually do something in response to visiting your web site. Will you have a great method of collecting the names of visitors to the site – so that you can follow up and start building a strong business relationship.
Your website hosting is a very important ranking factor which is often overlooked. If you are hosting on a poor quality shared server in a lost and forgotten corner of the universe then do not be surprised if you are struggling to be found. I can host your website on UK based servers with great uptime and customer service. Google takes into account the geographical location of your website for obvious reasons.
I have spent years owning and running a succession of businesses all mainly in the high street retail sector. I was quick to start offering products for sale on the internet and quickly learnt that being high up in the search results is critical. I also leant to look at the boring stuff: site loading times, mobile style sheets, browser compatibility, targetting search terms, your competitors' activities and lots of other things that quite frankly most web developers don't want to know about. It is not sexy but it is critical for online success. I am not a graphic designer or a coder but a Digital Marketing Professional.
