I will come and visit you to establish what you want to get from your web site, whether it's a new web site or the upgrading of an existing web site.
From that initial review meeting, I will provide a plan of action where you can see what needs to be done and you can budget your costs and establish timescales.
I will provide a report on your web competition with distinct guidance on what actions we need to take to improve your chances of online success.
Where necessary, we can work with our freelance professional designers to ensure your brand is the driving force behind your web prescence (see this fashion boutique called Delly + Maple). If you are already working with a PR or design agency, they can still create your web site design, and I will build and maintain the site on-going (see this organic cereal company). Alternatively I can develop your site from a professional template - because this keeps the design costs right down (i.e. less than £150), and means the time it takes to get your web site designed and built is minimal, sometimes just a few days, depending on content and site features (see this spill training company). I didn't do this one, but it's a good mate of mine who is a fantastic carpenter in Taunton, so I would like to link to him too; www.pcoles.co.uk.
If you require more than a static web site, I can develop that for you, either from scratch, or by using and / or tailoring an off-the-shelf application (we don't want to re-invent the web if the hard work has already been done, and paid for).
With some companies this can lead to huge bills for the work, and for highly complex systems, it can be so, but for the majority of small businesses, a bespoke database application can be developed and launched in a number of days, at a very reasonable cost.
I have some examples where I have developed database driven web sites for specific tasks so you can see the results, and learn about the process.
A lot is talked about search engine optimisation and if you haven't come across the SEO TLA, you soon will ! If you need your web site to be found by potential customers when they search the internet, creating your web site is the first step, but it must also be conceived and implemented with the search engines in mind if your web site is to be found when people search. The world of web search changes constantly, with new ways of getting good results, alongside new ways of losing traffic through simple, but incorrect actions !
So much matters...
From the content you create, to the web page layout, to the names you give the web pages, to the images and links you include on the web pages... it all adds up to create a site that will be found, or, will not be found...
"Hi there, I just wanted to thank you for introducing me to Tony Phipps. He came round yesterday and he very kindly talked us through all the things we should be doing to help get our site up the Google rankings! It was invaluable advice and very gratefully received. I cant believe just how incredibly complicated and ever changing the world of SEO is !! Thank you again."
"Tony Phipps who also does some SEO locally might be just the person for you. He helped us to find our web developers a couple of years ago as he builds small websites and is quite comfortable with the dark arts of SEO so he might be your man, I certainly know that he always does more than he says he will (or charges for) and even a couple of years after we stopped working with him professionally he sends us in an email telling us that we're missing a trick of some sort!".
