Beautifully crafted, slick websites that enhance the image of your business and give customers confidence.
We like to take advantage of the free tools that are available from industry giants such as Google and Yahoo! to give you a great solution at a great price.
Complete adherence to web standards means your site will work as intended in all modern web browsers (IE7+, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera) and optionally on mobile devices to maximise your audience.
Keep in touch with your customers by periodically sending them a newsletter to update them on your products or services. Marketing e-mail guidelines require that an "unsubscribe" option be included with every such message so we use a service called MailChimp to ensure full compliance and to avoid having your message end up in the Spam folder.
We can design your newsletter in the style of your website or brand and we have corporate communications expertise to assist in developing an effective message.
Add a Contact Us page to your website that will automatically collect e-mail addresses for your newsletter distribution. We can build this for you.
Does your website pay for itself? Who is visiting your site - are they potential customers? Is your site getting your message across?
All our sites are created with a Google Analytics account that gathers information about the visitors to your site. We will review this information and send you a periodic report to help you evolve your web presence.
When you want to target your advertising at a very specific audience Facebook is a great option. With a massive number of regular users Facebook has the reach and since its users give lots of information about themselves it allows Facebook to present advertisements that are likely to appeal.
You only pay when someone clicks so you can design several different approaches for your advert to appeal to different customer groups.
We can help you build a Facebook page for your business and develop a strategy to increase the number of individuals and businesses that 'Like' you. With an attentive audience you can communicate directly with people that want to hear what you have to say.
If you have something interesting to say Twitter offers a great way to make your message go viral.
Even allowing for the increased use of smart phones (iPhone, Android, Blackberry etc) evidence suggests that SMS text messages are a more timely way to communicate with your customers or members.
We can offer solutions for two-way SMS communications using short codes and keywords where required. We can link this into your existing databases, create a new database to store contact information or build secure web forms that allow you to initiate messages with a few clicks.
Replies can be sent to your own phone or handled by our system, for instance we can summarise or categorise replies automatically.
Our analysis of traffic to the sites we manage suggests that some 70% - 80% of search referrals come from Google. So it makes sense to give special attention to how your site appears in Google's many search sites, including Location based search.
We can help you devise a strategy to attract customers via Google.
