Does`nt time just fly by? It`s been 8 months since my last confession (whoops! I meant blog post). Here`s a quick update for the lovely visitors of Sitebee. I`ve not fallen of the edge of the planet, however I have been busy working on Gigarank, my other bit on the side.
I`m back on the scene again with Sitebee, I`m currently in the planning stages of a full revamp of the Sitebee website, think i`m going down the static route this time, leaving WordPress in the shadows for blog entries only. Only one problem I cannot decide on a layout that represents Sitebee, I`m very good at branding other companies and their websites but not my own. How do that work?
Updates and a sneak peak coming soon, see you shortly.
Feel free to contact me if you require any freelance web design or digital marketing doing.
Just a quick heads up, over the Christmas and new year period I will be taking a well deserved break for a few weeks.
All outstanding work will be completed and all regular Sitebee users will receive their service as usual. I`m currently not taking on any more work until I have cleared the backlog and taken my well earned break. Sitebee would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a prosperous 2015.
Sitebee are looking for a copy/ content writer to help with the some of the projects we manage, we need a talented creative native English web content writer based in UK for writing website content, blog posts, articles and press releases.
If your interested, please contact us with some examples of your work and your rates.
The year is coming to an end, I`ve moved into the big city (Manchester) and looking forward to the new year ahead. I have ordered the fastest broadband package that BT provide to build and publish websites even faster oh and watch Netflix.
This year I have been reasonably busy building and developing my GigaRank hosting brand, which I have to say has done far better than expected with over 25,000 visitors and growing per month. I`m looking forward to redeveloping the Sitebee website completely and developing an even stronger brand and web presence.
Bolton has many talented web designers, I know this because I frequently research the competition from local Bolton web designers. It`s not just the same in web design, 99.9% of all businesses have competitors. Your competition is most likely researching your company website on occasions and seeing what you`re getting upto, I would go out on a limb and estimate upto 10% of your website traffic is from your competitors.
The fact is in any business competition is tough, if your competitor is ranking higher than you in the search engines or has a more user friendly website there`s a chance that could sway your potential customer into using your competitor. Don`t let that happen!
Sitebee have many years experience (almost a decade) in developing and publishing websites that are user friendly and search engine friendly. We won`t bore you with terminology (lingo) you don`t understand, we will build you a great website or revamp your existing website that will enhance the visibility of your business on the Internet.
New Website Build
Are you starting a new venture? Have you been thinking about having a new website built? Well hopefully you have started a smooth and pleasant process by visiting Sitebee. However big your aspirations we can help by creating you an engaging website that you and your visitors will love, whether you need 3 web pages or 300 web pages our experience in designing and publishing websites will ensure you have a beautiful visitor and search engine friendly website.
Have an existing website that requires fresh new up to date responsive design as your tired of looking the same old design? If your website is looking outdated you could be losing customers, just think for a moment, when you visit a website and it looks tired and old would you click off and visit another website that is better designed with a more friendly user experience?
Mobile Device Friendly
Another example would be; is your website mobile device friendly? The traditional way of using the internet on a desktop or laptop computer is dying! Your customers are now searching from mobile devices such as Smartphones and Tablets. If your existing website is not mobile device friendly research suggests that the visitor is more likely to leave your website and find another website that is mobile friendly as it`s a more visitor friendly experience. All website that Sitebee design are mobile device friendly (responsive).
The Web Design Process
If you have never had a website built for you before the process could be quite daunting, where to start, what do I need? How pages do I need? Let me help put your mind at ease, our experience in communicating with our customers is second to none, we help take out the worry in having a new website designed and launched on budget and on time.
Have you thought about?
How many web pages will your new website require?
Most of the websites of the websites that Sitebee build are around 5 to 20 web pages in size, for example if your a Bolton based tradesmen a small typical website would consist of the following pages; Homepage, About Us, Services, Testimonials, Contact Us. That`s really all you need, If you provide more than one service then we recommend you have a web page for each individual service you provide. If you want to sell online, your ideal solution would be you have an eCommerce website built which allows for a new web page for each product you sell.
Who will be writing the content for the website?
This is probably the most important factor in having a new website built, Ideally your better off writing the text for your website as your the one with the experience in your field. You should aim for around 5 to 10 paragraphs of well written text per page. Don`t worry about the optimisation of the content we can do afterwards. If your busy schedule will not allow for you to write the text for your website then we can do it for you, make sure you tell us first so we can factor it in on the quote we provide you.
Do you have a domain name and hosting?
To publish a website online it will require a domain name, ideally something short and memorable, if you already have a domain name then great we can use it to publish your website online, if not we can register a .com .co.uk or .net domain name for you a cost of £10 per year. A free domain name for the first year is provided with most of our Bolton web design packages.
You will also require web hosting, that`s the server space where your website files will be located. Here at Sitebee we have our own dedicated server is that secure, very fast and powerful. Any new website we build will receive 12 months free website hosting, £40 per year after that.
