One of the reasons we set up our own website design company was the disappointment of seeing poorly designed websites that failed to market small businesses to their best advantage. The Internet gives small and medium sized businesses the chance to compete on an equal footing with much larger companies, but often this advantage isn't exploited.
For many people, your website will be their first contact with your company. This is your chance to establish your brand as a force to be reckoned with even if it's a small home-based business.
Mucho is the website design champion for SMEs:
- We design websites that put you on a level footing with much larger businesses;
- We design websites that will keep you ahead of the competition for at least five years;
- We design websites at a price you can afford, and if you want to avoid costly mistakes, you can't afford not to use us.
Most websites need updating approximately every five years due to the ever-changing nature of technology and the Internet. For example, in the last five years screen size, resolution and colour depth have improved; bandwidths have increased, and new technologies have become available.
If you're not sure what needs updating on your website, just email us the website address and your phone number and we'll tell you how it can be improved. The six most commonly needed upgrades are:
- Visual Interface
Just as people need new clothes, regular haircuts and a fitness regime to keep them looking their best, most websites need a facelift once in a while to make sure they look fresh, professional and up to date. As a simple example, websites can now be much wider and photos larger than they were 5 years ago.
- Website Navigation
If you've added sections to your website, or removed them, since it was first set up we may need to tidy up the navigation system so that people can find the information they need fast.
- The Coding or Software
If newer versions of PHP, MYSQL, HTML, CSS or any other technology used on your original site has been released and it offers advantages in in terms of security, functionality or download times we will upgrade your site. We are able to alter a site so that you can update it yourself if needed.
- Search Engine Optimisation
We will maintain and, when possible, improve your search engine ranking and come up with alternative ideas to boost your search engine ranking. We can also set up a Google analytics account so you can view traffic and measure the success of the site and set up a Google sitemap to help Google index the site and display the results correctly.
- Adding a Blog
Blogging is becoming more popular and providing a cost effective way for small and medium sized businesses to establish themselves as experts in their field and attract targeted visitors to their website. We can add a blog within the framework of your existing website, and we are able to give you tips and tricks on updating your blog and adding new content for it. If required, we can also ghost write your blog.
- The Copy
If the wording on your website is dull, confusing, too long, too short or designed for print rather than for reading online, then people won't read it. Often rewriting websites so that the copy is stylish, persuasive and fast to read is a quick job and an easy way to get people to stick around and find out more.
