Here are some Frequently Asked Questions from clients and website visitors. If you still have questions that aren’t answered, please do get in touch & we can arrange a chat 🙂
Now… think of your website as your online shop window – and in today’s world where more and more people use the internet each day, to do more of their routine information gathering, you cannot afford to be without an online portal into your business.
You also need to ensure that your website is mobile responsive. Since April 2015, this has been a factor in how Google ranks websites, so it is IMPORTANT! Over 50% of search engine searches are now done on mobile, so you could potentially be missing out on clients if your mobile doesn’t measure up.
You must always own your own domain name!! It’s a valuable business asset, and that’s why I get YOU to buy your own.
I don’t design sites from scratch, as that take a lot of time (and hence increases costs). The templates I use allow for a LOT of customisation for my Bespoke Package clients. The Starter Package is a bit more limited (on purpose) to keep costs contained.
My aim is to get people a professional & beautiful site in a short time.
I do the technical configuration as the Administrator for your website; it’s important for the security and integrity of your website and data to have one user to do the technical stuff, and another login that is used for the content management side of things.You will get the admin details once the site is handed over … it is YOUR website, your domain, your business!
One thing that is very important with The Simple Web Company, is to empower people to gain the confidence to manage their own website, and with the basic manual, tutorial and support during development, that I provide, that works very well! However, please be assured that if there are things that you don’t feel confident doing yourself, we do also provide add-on support at an hourly rate, so you won’t be left in the lurch.
It can be added in to a Bespoke Package, and if a client taking a Starter Package would like SEO done, that can be quoted for as well. I work with an SEO guy close to where I work, and we collaborate on getting your site to do well with the search engines.
Having said that, blogging is a great way of getting more search engine attention, so it’s worth thinking about if you have the time to schedule it in as part of your marketing.
- Create streams of (passive) income through online sales of ebooks, courses and other digital products (which means more money)
- Establish yourself as an expert (which increases credibility)
- Get your website indexed quickly by search engines (especially Google) … which means more traffic
- Manage and update your websites quickly (which saves time and effort)
- Interact with your customers and subscribers (which increases loyalty)
- Quickly post content from a variety of sources, including video (which provides flexibility)
- Benefit from the power of the Social Bookmarking and Networking Sites (which means even more traffic)
- And a lot more….
Hopefully these questions have helped you! Please get in touch if there is anything more you’d like to chat about!
