Website Build & Maintenance

We can offer a full website design and build in WordPress which will be search engine friendly and up to date with current technology.  The beauty of WordPress is that it is constantly maintained and updated by a group of developers which effectively makes it future proof, as they keep it up to date with technology changes.  You can also create users with different levels of access to manage and maintain the website.

Search Engine Optimisation

Many years ago, you could have a website built and just sit back and wait for the phone to start ringing.  These days there is a bit more work involved.  In an ever increasingly competitive online world, it’s essential that your business has online visibility and expectations from your visitors are high.

Search Engine Optimisation is an often overlooked but essential service that helps your new website to rank better in organic searches.  Achieving good organic positions in Google takes time and effort, and SEO work is ongoing to gradually increase and maintain your positions.  Our local SEO service involves ‘on page’ and ‘off page’ work to help build and improve your reputation, visibility and brand awareness.  This ultimately leads to more traffic to your website – more traffic = more potential new customers.

Social Media Management

To take your online visibility that one step further, a great way of interacting with your customers is through social media but very often it’s the one thing busy business owners have no time for.  We can take care of that for you by researching, planning and posting quality information through social media channels on a regular basis.  The aim is to increase engagement with your customers, which will help to keep you at the forefront of their minds when they need the service that you offer!
