As many people already know, we have been producing websites for many years and we now have a dedicated site to promote this activity at www.raysmith.co.uk/webdesign check it out.
Many designers can knock up a pretty looking website (and many can’t) but that is only half the story. We work with the client to try to understand first of all what they expect the site to do for them. Some simply want an online brochure, some want to sell their products online, some just want followers but many have no idea at all and that’s where our expert knowledge can help. .
Once the basic design and content have been decided the way in which the site is constructed is crucial. Anyone can build a DIY template site from website hosting companies or even some Banks offer this service. The problem is your pretty but not unique website will never get found by the search engines and your domain name will usually be a sub domain of the hosting company so anybody searching for you has no chance so what is the point of wasting your money?. .
If the basic building blocks of the HTML coding is successfully checked as XHTML 1.0 Strict against W3C Markup validation Service then you are off to a good start. (you would be surprised that some so called webmasters have no idea what this means). .
We have tools for ensuring that the content is also web SEO friendly and easily indexed by Google and other search engines. When your new website is handed over we can teach you how to use these inbuilt tools if you are going to add your own content or we can offer a site maintenance service for a small monthly fee. .
Of course there is more to a good website than all the boring technical stuff that you don’t need to know or worry about anyway. When it comes to showing off your wares or premises we can offer photographic and Photoshop skills too and once you are up and running we are still here for help and maintenance. .
Even if you don’t want a website and you have a small business you need to think about how the internet can help drive traffic to you. We offer a local marketing service that will get your business noticed on all the internet search and social media portals so whilst you have no website you are still making smart use of the internet. .
