So you’ve realised that everyone has a website these days, and you’re feeling a bit left out. Or maybe you’ve got one, and it looked great a few years ago, but now it needs a new twist.
Not only that, but all our sites are now responsive as standard making your website accessible on desktop computers, tablets and phones.
All our websites come with 1 year’s free web hosting*. Awesome.
It’s not just about having a ‘web presence’, it’s also about gaining your visitors confidence so that they are prompted to get in touch, make a booking or buy a product. That confidence won’t be very strong if your site is so out of date that they can’t even work out if you are still trading!
Regardless of the size of your site, seeing some online activity does gain an element of reassurance with your visitors.
It may be that you need to post regular events or promotions. Perhaps your latest portfolio items and gallery photo’s or a regular newsletter. A Content Management System will allow you to control the content yourself, without the need for a great deal of technical knowledge. They control all the styling for you, so all you need to worry about is writing some text or uploading a photo.
There are a range of cost effective Content Management Systems available with different levels of functionality, and we can help advise you on the most suitable for your needs.
Your website’s not just a pretty face, you know. If you want to sell something through it too, we can help to find the best e-commerce solution for your requirements.
More and more consumers are purchasing through the internet and having an online shop can really widen your customer market. We can make the buying experience an easy and safe experience for your customers.
We’re not going to shy away from the fact that E-commerce sites are going to take a big chunk of your budget. You should be prepared for costs in thousands, rather than hundreds, along with higher ongoing maintenance costs. If it is something you’d like to pursue, we want to be sure that you are aware of all the commitments an e-commerce site involves. Do get in touch so we can explain the various options available to meet your needs.
So you’ve gone to all the trouble of getting a new website, or perhaps you have a new product that you want to shout about. Now you need to let your clients and contacts know about it. Email marketing is the way to go.
You can communicate your message quickly and cost effectively, and you can be smart about who your target audience is. Twist can design an eye catching HTML email that won’t go directly from your clients Inbox to their Deleted folder. Not only that, but we have the tools to provide you with valuable analytics for Open and click tracking, Forward to friend reports and bounce reports. You can even integrate it with your Google Analytics.
And once you have a template up and running, you can continue to use it time and time again.
However, no one likes to receive spam email, so our systems will only allow you to send emails to your existing clients and recently made contacts. We take people’s privacy seriously and insist that our clients adhere to our Anti-Spam Policy. We make no apologies for not allowing bought email lists to be used.
Search Engine Optimisation and Social Media go hand in hand as a way of increasing awareness of your brand, product or service. And the good news, is you can do most of it yourself.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is fine tuning your website to get the best possible results in the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo! And Bing.
Having a well-designed website is all well and good, but not much use if nobody can find it.
All our websites are provided with a standard level of SEO and submitted to the major search engines, but there are lots of things that you can do yourself to help improve your search engine listings.
None of us can escape social media, especially as it seems the quickest way to spread news. So why not take advantage of this by setting up your own Facebook page or Twitter account to tell people about your latest offers or to provide a friendly face to your company. You can even link your posts to your website for a quick and effective way of channelling traffic to your site.
Visit our blog to get some helpful hints and tips on both SEO and Social Media.
So now you have a sparkly new website, but where do you put it? And how do you get one of those really catchy web addresses?
We can provide website hosting for any sized site, along with your chosen domain name (as long as nobody else has already taken it!) and setup any email accounts you need.
Maybe you’ve already got all that but fancy a change; we can guide you through transferring your hosting and domains from your existing provider to Twist.
