Whether you need something simple, or a little more complex, Southport Hosting are fully equipped to design a website which is specific to your needs and will promote your business 24-7.
What You Need To Know
It doesn’t matter what your business is, having a website, even a basic one, should be part and parcel of your marketing and advertising strategy. A website allows you to have a 24/7 sales person permanently available to promote your company, products or services. It allows you to have an online presence to direct people to and allows you to be found when people search on search engines… if you are not there, they can’t find you and will likely go to a competitor!
Statistics in an ongoing consumer tracking study conducted by BIA/Kelsey is that 97% of consumers use online media to search for local businesses and products. Don’t have a website or a web presence? Chances are YOU are losing business, NOW!
Most people make up their mind about a website on average in about 4 seconds. On the web, first impressions really do count! Make sure you give the right first impression by offering the viewer the best possible experience and the one which fits their need quickly and effectively.
Some less than reputable website companies copy website templates for new customers, even those in the same marketplace! Don’t be caught out… we offer bespoke websites for all clients!
If a website designer tells you that once your website is built the customers will come flocking to your door and that you’ll be the top of the search engines in a matter of weeks, run for the hills. Having a website is not a short term strategy – and it’s unlikely you’ll see any immediate impact for a number of months.
Search engines use a number of key factors in how they rank your website – including site age, relevancy to the content matter, whether your site is keyworded correctly, whether your site is being updated regularly, how much traffic your site is generating and much more. Most of these factors do not occur overnight, and only a successful strategy of your site being updated with relevant content, good social media interaction, good online and offline SEO as well as actively promoting your site will enhance your reputation and increase your rankings.
Remember… the website is for you and your business. If you are not happy with it, chances are you won’t promote it successfully, which in turn means it won’t be a success! If you think something is wrong, ask why it’s that way. If you don’t link something a particular way, ask if it can be done differently.
Your website is working to build YOU a website… not themselves one!
