A great deal of companies are already online and many more are about to take the first step into the world of on-line promotion. Before you start, it's important that you think about what a Website can do for you.
Your site may well be the first contact a client has with your Company so it's got to be clear, concise and effective. If it's not you could be losing valuable business. As the 'shop front' of your business on the Web, your site will create an immediate impression of your Company. It has to be well designed both visually and from a 'navigational' point of view. It must also represent your individual identity, whether a reflection of existing promotional materials or a whole new image.
The Blue Custard Design Studio can cater for all types of business's big or small. We can create you a fully featured database driven site or a more simple but no less effective brochure style site. Check out our portfolio to see some of our most recent work.
There are at least four areas to maintain a successful website:
- Content - Your content needs to be alive, current and accurate. With fresh information people will have a reason to return to the site time and time again.
- Technology - Technology changes so fast that some say a "web year" is one month! A site begins to look and act old without regular updates and upgrades. Furthermore components of the site can malfunction requiring maintenance.
- Promotion - Visitor activity should increase over time on a successful Website. Regular reviews of your META Keywords and Search Engine submissions are paramount to ensure a high ranking.
- Response and Customer Service - Site visitors, customers and members often need a response. They may have questions, comments, complaints or suggestions. We can help you communicate more effectively with them more freely and more quickly.
We have a wide variety of maintenance options available to help your business stay in touch with your customers needs and stay ahead of your competitors.
Once your new website is live we do not abandon you! We will be there to provide you with backup should you have a problem or require an alteration for your site.
We provide technical support for all our clients both during the web build and thereafter, and for any of the other services we provide. There is no time limit on this support and you can ask us as many questions as you like.
We offer website maintenance support at discounted rates for clients that need more regular support and a faster turn-around on website changes, based on a website maintenance retainer for an agreed number of hours each month.
