Why Have a Responsive Website

So why have a responsive website, well… why would you not.

What is a responsive website, a responsive website is where the site will resize images and re-align text so it’s is viewable on laptops, tablets and mobile phones.

If your website is not responsize then your target audience will not be on your business page for long due to images being to large and having to swipe the page over. With a responsive website you will only need to swipe down while you are reading as the pages will fit automatially on your device.

If you currently don’t have a website and don’t want to invest too heavily then we have a package suitable for you.

Below is a link to a sample responsive site:

Quick Access Company Phone List

I was asked if I could create a phone list for a company from MS Access, I was sent a list of names and numbers across 4 different companies but all under one group. So I set about adding all the data to a Microsoft Access database this part was quite time consuming due to the quantity of employees there were.

I set about designing the form and importing the contact details adding a search box so it was easy to find other employees via their first name or surname within the company. Some of the detail boxes were disabled as no one needed to edit these, the database can also be  password protected to stop anyone tampering with your data.

Artists Marketplace Website Build

I was approached and asked if I could build a marketplace website for artists, my client was frustrated by how much comission art websites take so they wanted to build a marketplace that would be free for some time and then a small comission taken when a piece of art is sold, they wanted each artist to have their own store, set their own prices and carriage.

So I done some research on exisitng marketplaces and what was required, came up with a plan and presented to my client.

I supplied a complete website, marketplace, SSL cert, hosting and maintenance.

My client is happy and has their own marketplace where they can sell there own art and artists can create their own store.


Community Website build

New Malden Residents Association approached us for an updated website, they wanted something that was easy to use something which can be upated on a regular basis and have the ability to make it how they want it.

We decided to use wordpress on this occasion for the website as this is  like using a word processor and easy to use, lots of addons should they be required.

For a community website we felt this was the best option to go with due to the ease of use, contributors can be set up easily and the amount of addons you can get on the platform.

You can check this out HERE.

What is SEO?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, this is a way of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results.

Why do people need Search Engine Optimisation? The answer is fairly simple: to get their business online and out there to potential customers. With so many ways of doing this nowadays, it can be a little daunting.

A search engine is awebsite you go to in order to search for something specific, you would probably visit Google, Bing or what other search engines you use.
Once you type the words you want to search for in the search engine you will then be presented with a whole host of websites you can visit on your chosen words.

Have you ever considered how this happens andwhy you would want to insert keywords into your website?

So Google has a crawler that goes around and gathers information about the content they find on the Internet.
The crawlers will then start to build and index whihc is then fed through an algorithm that tries to match your query, this is know as the Search Engine part of SEO.

What about Optimization?

This is were the people who write the content that goes on your website are using specific keywords so that the content for the search engines are able to understand what they are seeing.

Optimization can take different forms. anything from title tags to meta descriptions. There are many different ways of researchng for keywords which we will cover in another post and this will help write SEO-friendly pages and help search engines understand your content.
