"When we met you, you listened and gave good advice. Ruth was very good with the visual side and got the 'mood' of what we were selling. You were friendly and came to the house, so it was a good quick service from you; you gave us the confidence to use your skills.
You came back with some very good ideas which were very different from any other website I'd seen and still is to this day very different. You are always there at the end of the phone, your service is second to none. We never have to wait for you to attend to our needs."
If you have no web site at present we can help you with the complete process from registering a name, designing and building a site, through to hosting it and keeping it up to date. If you already have a web site but wish to update it we can help you with a re-design, re-styling, or adding online availability features. We work from the text and pictures you have prepared and can make constructive suggestions based upon our experience.
We host your web site and email service using the top rated UK hosting provider. We take care of getting your web site working smoothly with fast page load times and provide you with web analytics to monitor visitor numbers and behaviour. We take monthly backups of your Joomla website and protect it from attack by hackers.
We can build static websites using Dreamweaver or more dynamic ones using a CMS such as Joomla. The benefit of a CMS is that is easier for our clients to update their website themselves quickly and easily from any web browser.
We build attractive and easy to use online shops in Joomla. Our clients can manage their shop quickly and easily from any web browser.
As part of setting up a Joomla website for clients we give them a succinct training course in how to update, grow and adapt their website to changing business needs.
During its construction we optimise your site to be found by search engines. Once your site is finished and online we submit it to the top search engines so that potential customers can find you.
We run complete search engine optimisation and internet marketing campaigns for clients in order to keep their web sites at the top of Google and the other major search engines for their chosen key search phrases.
See our SEO services page for more details.
Often the hardest part of creating a new web site is knowing what to say. Don't worry, we can help - from brainstorming with you what key messages you want to send to your customers, to writing important passages or the whole site. In addition, we always carefully proof-read every page for grammatical and typing errors.
We offer a digital photography service to all of our clients. We can arrange for a photographer to come out to you to take any digital images that may be required for your web site.
We also have a preferred supplier arrangement with a local firm of professional photographers if that extra quality is required. The strength of their service is based on many years of experience in commercial photography. This, with a thorough understanding of lighting techniques, combines to give a totally professional service from start to finish - essential when creating quality images for the internet.
If you do not yet have your own domain name, we can advise you on its choice, check availability and register it for you. A .co.uk domain name costs £40 for the first two years and £20/year thereafter. A .com name costs £50 for the first two years and £25/year thereafter.
For smaller web sites Adobe Contribute is a good web page editor that allows you to update the site yourself. For larger sites we can set up a content management system (Joomla). If you do not have either the equipment or the inclination to keep your site up to date we can do it for you for a monthly maintenance fee, or on an ad-hoc basis.
If you want to send a regular email newsletter to your customers we can help you plan, design and implement the campaign. We can do anything from just designing the first newsletter to running the complete system to your timetable on our email database. This includes keeping your list of customer email addresses up-to-date and dealing with all opt-out requests.
We have over fifteen years' experience of designing and developing database systems for the PC and Mac using 4th Dimension, a powerful and flexible relational database. A number of these databases have been specifically designed to handle the administrative tasks of running holiday cottages.
A number of our databases provide online and offline links to web sites in order to make the task of maintaining those sites simpler, quicker and in some cases, delivered in real time.
