What is a website?
A website is the digital face of your business. If potential clients discover your business through the internet, your website gives the first impression of your business, products and services. Therefore, having a well-designed, professional and responsive website should be your marketing priority.
Additionally, a website should rank highly in search engine search results so that your ideal client can find your business online.
Our range of website services provides you with a website that fulfils the needs of your business and its marketing goals.
Website maintenance is a process that occurs once the web design process is completed. It includes continuously checking the website for errors or mistakes that may appear over time and ensuring that all aspects of the website are up to date.
Additionally, it includes making sure that the backlinks on the website are functional and updating the content on the website to keep it relevant.
Website hosting refers to your website being stored on a server. Through this server, visitors can access your website on their own devices.
Without a website host, your website would be inaccessible to your users. We make use of Afrihost to host the websites that we design.
Copywriting is the process of creating content, specifically text, for advertising purposes. In the case of website design, copywriting refers to the writing of the text on your website.
The text is written in such a way that it communicates a specific message to your website users while also making it more likely for search engines to find the website. This is part of search engine optimization.
Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is the process of optimising a website so that it is ranked better by search engines such as Google. The better your website is ranked, the higher it will appear in the results of a search engine.
With good SEO, more people will find your website. Improving SEO includes doing keyword research, writing good copy (ensuring that the text on your website is readable), adding links to other pages on your website and to other websites and ensuring that all components of the website are up to date.
What do you need from
me in order to create
In order to create your website, we need the following from you:
Text for your website: This text should include all information that you want on your website. Alternatively, we can write the text for you. In this case, we would need to meet with you to discuss the exact nature of your business.
Images: For your website to look professional, we require good-quality photographs. Depending on your business, these could be images of your products, photographs displaying your services, and images of your team. You can send us these photographs, or we can visit your business to take the photographs. Alternatively, you can also buy stock images online. A good example of a website to find stock images is Envato Elements.
We also require the payment of a deposit before beginning to create your website.
My company is
rebranding. Do I need a new website?
This depends on your current website and whether it aligns with your marketing goals and your company brand. Of course, your budget also plays a role. We believe that it is good practice to regularly update the design of your website. Why don’t you meet with us, and we can discuss whether you need a new website or whether your current website simply requires a facelift.
What are the benefits
of having a website for my business?
Having a website gives your business an online presence. In a time where most people turn to Google or other search engines to find products and service providers, having a website allows more customers and potential clients to find you. A well-designed, professional and responsive website lets your clients know that you are serious about your business and the products and services you offer.
If you own a business that sells products, you can also sell these products directly through a website. This means that even people who cannot reach your physical store can purchase items from you. An e-commerce website allows you to increase your sales and serve a larger community.
How long does it take
you to create a
The time taken to create a website depends on a number of factors, such as:
the number of pages required
whether or not copywriting services are required (or whether you as the client provide us with all text for the website)
whether you can provide us with photographs (alternatively we can buy stock images for your website, or take photographs for you)
how quickly you provide us with the information required for your website.
If you send us all the information required for your website, the design can be completed in as little as a week.
Why do you use WordPress
to design websites?
WordPress is a content management system that allows us to create responsive websites easily.
This means that the websites we design can be used on all devices, including cell phones, laptops, desktops and tablets. It is free to use, easy to customize using themes and plugins, and it is secure.
It also makes it easy to improve the SEO of a website. Using WordPress gives us the freedom to provide our clients with websites that they are proud of.
Every project presents its own goals, audience, and opportunities. Our approach to great projects begins with a time-tested process that discovers and addresses the unexpected.
