Strategy to Website Design and Results !
The strongest capability that I will deliver to you is the ability to translate your Business Strategy and Business Goals into a workable Digital Marketing Solution. When I first begin a relationship with you, the client, the last thing from my mind initially is what should your website look like? The first thing I like to do is to get to know you and your business. What goals do you have? what is the nature of your business? what is your business model? How can we measure success? There are many people that know how to build a website, but there are not many who know how to interpret your business plans into a Digital Marketing Strategy that will form the basis of the website design. From this it will become clear on what design, look and feel, content and functionality you need and how the website will interface with your business processes to ensure we achieve your goals.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is very important. Having a website that cannot be found by Search Engines is the same as having no website at all. There are many factors to consider in developing a SEO strategy, one of the most important is the quality of the content that is on your site. It has to be “valuable” content and highly relevant to the nature of the business that you are in. I can work with you to ensure that we have a SEO strategy which covers content and social media that is effective and practical.
With adaptation we can aim to get you high up in the search engine rankings. This is an on-going process however, even after your web site goes live you have to work hard to ensure that the search engines see you as continually “relevant”. I will give you clear advice on how to maximise your relevance and rankings even after we “go live”.
Content & Copy
Quite often clients find that they do not have the time to write the content themselves. If this is the first time you have had to write your marketing narrative and describe your business in a way that is readable on a web site, then it can be quite a daunting task. Given that I have had a great deal of experience in this area then I do offer to take this task on for you. It can mean we get the website completed quickly and up and running to start delivering on your goals.
Hosting & Maintenance
If you decide that you would like me to host and maintain your website, then I will be glad to help. It is important that your site is hosted with a trusted provider who can ensure 99.9% up time and quick download times for your clients. I use one of the best hosting companies in the UK, and they provide 24*7 support.
I will also ensure that all software / licences are updated and that the site is backed up regularly. I will also keep you informed of any new digital developments that I think your business could take advantage of.
John was recommended to us by our IT service provider, Sensible Solutions. Over the last few years we have unfortunately encountered poor advice and service from numerous web designers and hosters and having wasted time and money, were on the verge of giving up. John was presented with what is likely to turn out to be one of his biggest challenges, not by our website but by winning our trust.
We have found that John is able to deliver what he promises, along with sound, understandable advice. He has shown us shown us that he really knows what he is talking about but most importantly, is able to explain it in simple terms. We have learned so much in such a short space of time which is so important when trying to achieve the maximum results.
We would have no hesitation in recommending John.Mr and Mrs Middleton
