Web Design is Important

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom,Websites — Tags: , , — needahand @ 10:21 am

Web Design is Important – If you are trying to promote your club or business using a website it is important to realize the significance of good web design. This is especially important with regards to a business, because your website will be representing your business online and should have much the same impact as a shop on the High Street. In other words first impressions are important and when a person first visits your website, you will want them to have a good impression and stay on the page, have a lokk round and come back again when they are looking in the future. If a customers first impression is that your website looks awful, then the chances are that they will never return (except by accident) and you have lost one potential customer forever. This may also have an impact on your offline business as the customer may associate poor design with poor customer service. Getting an expert web design professional should be your first task when setting up a website, doing it yourself on a free website platform is not a good idea as there is counter productive advertising and more chance for a visitor to leave your site.

Digital Marketing Tips

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom,Websites — Tags: , — needahand @ 5:37 pm

Digital Marketing Tips – How do you decide what to do with your digital marketing campaign? One of the factors that influences success, failure or otherwise from one perspective would be to look closely at your website, whether it’s a traditional business or a purely online business and that’s probably the best place to start. What are the other digital assets that you might have? A mobile website, You Tube channel, a Facebook page, maybe a linkedin profile, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, some of electronic direct mail like a newsletters and more, do you have a blog, do you have a forum? All of these digital assets need to be assessed. When it comes to looking at your website in particular you can look at the numbers.

Firstly look at the your website conversions, are you attracting enough quality leads, are you make enough sales, if that number is not right then you should perhaps look at the traffic, where does it come from, they they come back again and again and are they buying anything? How many unique visitors per month are you getting, and what is the percentage of new and repeat visitors. What is behind these numbers, what’s the percentage of hits on those particular pages which are performing well, and then what can be done to improve things.

What’s the competition getting up to and what digital marketing initiatives should you be undertaking, these are the sort of things that we want to look into to make sure that we’ve got the strategy right and then we’re building the digital assets that are going to support the business plan to help you move forward with your digital marketing program. Good Luck

Finding Web Designers

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom,Websites — Tags: , , — needahand @ 5:59 pm

Finding Web Designers – If you are planning to get a new website to promote your business or hobby then you may well be looking for a web design specialist to help you with the task. While of course it is possible to create a website by yourself using readily available software and tools, it may a bit beyond most people and website creation alone is just one small cog in a large wheel of what is really involved in the whole process of putting a website online and having success with it. There are multiple devices to consider so that your site will look good however a person decides to access it, there is SEO, how will your website rank on search engines once it has been published and there are many other things to consider and know about before customers start beating a trail to your door via  a website. Hiring the services of a website designer is probably the best idea if you want the whole process to go smoothly and avoid the many mistakes and pitfalls that can befall a beginner.

Aylesbury Businesses

Filed under: England,United Kingdom,Websites — Tags: , — needahand @ 1:37 pm

Continuing my series of local business websites for the Aylesbury area of Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, I have just done a new site for an Aylesbury hairdresser, which should be handy for those seeking hairdressing and beauty services in the Aylesbury area. These local business websites are fairly easy to get decently ranked, and certainly bring in some business for those who choose to do them. The website is not finished yet and is pretty basic, but at the end of the day it is the rankings which matter, so I will be watching it closely over the next few months to see how it progresses. I shall be adding lots more Aylesbury business websites shortly as it is part of an experiment that I am trying out..

Websites for Sale

Going slightly off topic for a moment (if I have a topic!), I have several websites that I am currently considering selling. As I now have over 100 domain names, it is getting a little tough to keep up with them all so for now I am listing 4 which I would consider selling at the right price, 3 of them are Spanish based websites dealing with property sales (or rentals), the other is for personal trainers in my home town of Aylesbury. The Spanish property sites are based in Torrevieja, Villamartin and Moraira, and are all a little different in construction, though the Torrevieja and Villamartin ones both use wordpress so would be easy to export in their current form. The Torrevieja property site uses a plugin and can be viewed here: Torrevieja Property Site, it only has a couple of properties on at the moment, but of course if you purchased it, you would no doubt want to add your own properties. The Villamartin property on used a theme called classipress, so you would have to buy your own license if you wanted to keep it in its present form, it can be viewed here: Villamartin Property Site, again it only has 3 properties on at the moment though I will add more when I get time. This one is already on page 2 of google.co.uk for its keyword, so could be very profitable for anyone selling property in the Villamartin area. The third property site is for Moraira property (Moraira is in the northern Costa Blanca). This website was produced with Dreamweaver, so anyone using this software could easily have all the files transferred, and use ‘as is’, you can view this site here: Moraira Property Site. The final website that I have for sale (there will be many more), is for personal trainers in Aylesbury. It may seem a little weird but I am constantly getting requests to list personal trainers on my many town information websites, so I guess there must be a demand. This Aylesbury personal trainer website will shortly appear on page 1 of google.co.uk and hopefully will be at position 1, so it would be a great money spinner for anyone offering these services in Aylesbury, or wanting to list services for a fee, as it is in its current form. You can view this website here: Aylesbury Personal Trainer. So there it is, all 4 websites are for sale (no hurry), and I will part with them for the right price, they are not currently providing any income as I have not added Google Adsense ads to any of them, though this could easily be done, and would in time get your money back.
