How To Choose The Right Web Designer

For the majority of us whether we are looking to create a new website or refresh the image of our existing website we will seek the help of a web developer. Designing and developing a website is not an easy task and with an average website’s lifespan lasting approximately three to five years it is important that you find a web developer that is right for you and your business. Here are some things to think about when it comes to choosing a web developer to avoid any costly expenses further down the line.

You will want to choose a web developer that has plenty of experience; you don’t want to end up being their guinea pig! Take a look at their website advertising their business, if they are going to be developing yours then you would expect for them to have an exceptional fully functioning website themselves. In addition to this take a look at their case studies. Do they have examples and evidence of working with similar businesses to yours? If you are a multinational business and have a global brand it is unlikely that a one man band Web Design Company that only has experience with dealing with local businesses is going to be capable of fulfilling your businesses demands.

Optimise Your Web Design So It is Search Engine Friendly

A good website design and structure is fundamental to your website’s success, especially one that will interact and comply with search engine rules and regulations.

Here are some useful things to consider when developing your website that will improve your website listings in search engines:

-Only link to useful content or to give credit for someone else’s work. In the past people used to provide a link to someone else’s website in the hope that they would in return provide a link to your website. However, nowadays Google no longer see’s these links as valuable and instead treat them as a form of spam. Google does still value links and linking will still assist in where you appear in search engine listings; however it is important that linking is done in the right manner.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Benefits Of Having A Blog Feed Included In Your Web Design

-Keep your customers up to date. A blog feed is a simple and effective way of quickly alerting your customers to any useful information. This might include a new product launching, Christmas opening times or perhaps a special offer that you might have.

-Publish product reviews. As there are so many similar products available to buy on the internet customers often want to find as much information as possible about a product they are about to invest their hard earned cash on. Including product reviews on your website are a great way of providing your customers the extra information they are looking for. A positive product review could be the difference between getting that extra sale and losing the sale to someone else.

-Raise brand awareness and drive traffic to your website. If you have an active blog feed that is posting useful and interesting information, it is likely that you are increasing your brand awareness and brands visibility. People reading your blog might be encouraged to share an entry on one of their social media channels. Your brand/business is then introduced to a whole new following of people. This can sometimes drive traffic to your website. If people read a blog entry about a product they are interested in, it could even result in a sale. Read the rest of this entry »

Snapchat For Businesses

Snapchat is a mobile app that is a new social networking channel that is beginning to sweep the nation. The original function of Snapchat allowed you to take a picture and send it to your friends for a time period between 1 and 10 seconds. Once your friends viewed the photo and the time was up, the photo was gone forever.

Building on this, recent developments within Snapchat now allow for a story to be posted to your Snapchat timeline. This involves posting just one or a selection of images to your timeline that can be viewed as many times as your friends wish, but the post will only be available for 24 hours then it will disappear never to be seen again.

Online marketers have jumped at the chance of utilising this unique social media channel and have begun to incorporate snap chat into their business marketing plans. Read the rest of this entry »
