I need a straightforward website that showcases my business, can you help?
Is there a way that I can update the content myself?
I’ve heard of responsive website design, is it important?
Can you link my social media to my website?
Is it possible to monitor how many people are visiting my website?
Your website is your online shop front or corporate brochure; it’s an essential tool for communicating your brand, showcasing your product and guiding your customer to the information they need. Your website is the icing on the cake; a visual summary of months of hard work, dedication and number crunching to justify an idea’s feasibility. Because of this, it is not surprising that many entrepreneurs have visualised their idyllic website well before they need to. But when the time comes, it should definitely be more than just a pretty face.
Cost effective website design
In succession to the ‘bells & whistles’ approach with 3D animations and flash pop-up graphics, the website industry has taken a welcome step forward into the user-friendly arena; sites with contemporary colours, simple navigation and editable pages.
An effective website has creative content, relevant keywords and appealing imagery. Anyone has access to website builders such as WordPress and Squarespace, the secret is how well you can put all of the above together. This is where Landsker can help.
Designing for mobile devices
The launch of the iPad and Android tablets has fuelled the need for websites with responsive design; a site with a flexible layout that can adjust depending on which device it is being viewed. Responsive websites enable the reader to view content at regular size and access menus more easily. The percentage of customers accessing the internet via a mobile device is constantly rising. If you want your customers to stay on your website for longer, ensure it is responsive.
Manage your own web content
It is common for organisations to have a website designed, at what seems like a fairly reasonable cost, to then find that each future change (no matter how small), equals an hour of design time on the bill. Having your website created on a platform such as WordPress gives you back some control. Once the core elements have been designed and your site is active, with a bit of guidance, you have the freedom to edit essentials such as price lists and event dates, at your own convenience and at little cost.
