Web Development & Hosting
Having a website is now an integral part of operating a business. Customers use websites to see what products/services you are offering, to get in touch with you either by obtaining your contact details through your Contact Us webpage or by using the Live Chat function or even just to confirm the legitimacy of your business.
Like all our services at Thinking Machine, we offer a pick-and-mix when it comes to your website.
Website design and development
We can provide you with ‘the works’ to get your website up and running. We can design your website, write the content and then have your website developed by our experienced developers.
From the simple to the very complex, we can build it all.
We can provide storage space and access for your website on the Internet through our Web Hosting service. This basically allows your website to be accessible on the Internet.
If your website isn’t hosted, it would be like Adele performing a concert without an audience. You have an amazing website but no one can see it because it’s not on the Internet.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Many businesses and small businesses in particular, don’t invest in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). You may be wondering why you should spend your money on this, so I’ll give you an example.
You’re a restaurant owner of a great new Italian restaurant with an amazing website that shows your menu, specials, contact and location details, but customers are just not coming through the door. The problem is that when customers are searching on the Internet for Italian restaurants in your area using search engines such as Google and Bing, your restaurant doesn’t rank and therefore doesn’t show up in the Google or Bing search results.
This is where SEO comes in. It helps to ensure that your business is one of the top ranked businesses for your location, so customers can find you more easily and ahead of your competitors. SEO can be used for any type of business – local tradesman, a small clothing boutique, a hair salon or even larger businesses such as an accounting or law firm and even power companies.
