Website Design FAQs
Some FAQ's regarding our website design & internet services ;
Can we view the design work in progress?
Yes - during the website design and build process we will give you a specific URL where you will be able to view the development of your web pages.
Why do we need a web site?
A website is a 24 hour shop window where people can find information about your company products & services, contact you through it or order your goods online. Not having an internet presence could mean that your customers may be taking their business elsewhere.
We are not looking for E-commerce - can a brochure website still bring us new business?
Websites are an indispensable aid in attracting new custom for growing businesses. They really can save you money in the long run. How much does it costs to send out marketing material to each interested customer or company? Instead, direct them to your website which will contain all the up-to-date information they need.

How will potential customers find our website?
Your site is now finished and live but your customers need to know you are out there. Of course you can include your website address on company literature, business cards and brochures but website promotion in the search engines is of vital importance to attracting new business & enhancing your company profile.
Will the search engines find our website?
In order for a search engine to know your website is on the Internet (and for someone searching on that search engine to find you) your site details must be 'submitted' to that engine. Otherwise your website will effectively remain "Ex-directory". The web pages need to be optimised so that they are search engine friendly. On completion of your website we will submit your site to Google and the all important top search engines.
Can search engine optimisation & promotion really make a difference?
Our clients tell us on a daily basis what a dramatic influence a professional website, fully optimised and promoted through the search engines has had on their business. Find out more about website promotion & marketing.
Can a small business benefit from having a site?
Without a doubt ! A web site, however big or small, with or without E-commerce, is a golden opportunity to profile your business and demonstrate products and services. No business is too small to benefit from the advantages of having an online brochure or selling goods and services online. Can customers find your business on Google Maps? ... if not they may be finding your competitors.
