Why get a website?

A website, no matter how small, will greatly increase your visibility on web searches. Google My Business is OK for local audience but to reach a wider, specialised market you’ll need a website. Social media posts make incremental differences to your visibility and are good for feedback, but a proper website will get your business found.

What do I need?

You’ll need web hosting, a domain name and I’d recommend WordPress (free) as a basis for your new site. It can be as elaborate as you want and will work on mobile devices. I can sort all this out for you and you can update the site or get me to do it for you.

If your website is not working for your business, I can install WordPress and optimise it for search results. Themes can upgrade your website to look like the big companies’ sites.

I’ve done this for many growing businesses, some of which are listed below.

See some local business examples below:

Landing Page design. This is the (top half) of the page you are redirected to when you click a Social Media advert. It should never be your Homepage. Although the product is energy-efficient windows and doors, that’s not really what people are buying. Sell the sizzle, not the steak.

HTML Websites

Long before WordPress came along, I started web design using Dreamweaver, an HTML design application. I even hand-coded pages. Here’s an example:
