Website Building & Design
Want your website to be noticed? Once it is built it needs to be found. By everybody!
Emmie’s website design business is based in Cape Town. We design & develop professional and well thought out websites for businesses around the world.
The two concepts, logical & creative, do not seem to go hand-in-hand when it comes to website creation. It either looks pretty and isn’t functional, or it is functional and looks unattractive. Emmie’s Web Design encompasses both. Professional, well-thought out websites that are well-designed and for wherever you are in the world. Although this website design business is based in Cape Town we can build and manage websites anywhere in the world through the utilisation of technology and strategic partnerships.
At Emmie’s Web Design there are various modules to choose from, so as my client you get to pick what is right for your business. This also means you can add new functionality at a later stage and that is ok too. There are a number of parts to Emmie’s Web Design business:
- Website Strategy 30%
- Website Creation 60%
- Website Management 10%
- Customer Happiness 100%
Website Designing – First Things First
Before website designing can begin, a good understanding of who you are, what you are offering, what you want to achieve and who your potential customers are, is required. For a small business owner this is usually a daunting task and often leads to procrastination. I offer a coaching service to move beyond the ‘stuckness’ and discover all that you need to get the foundation of your business laid out and then to create a beautifully designed, authentic website for marketing your business.
And Then …
There are practical steps for website designing, including a lot that goes on behind the scenes. Setting up everything in an ordered and structured way makes it easier to use, easier to find on search engines and easier to maintain. All three are very important. When we decide to work together we can setup a meeting and talk through exactly what you are looking for. I personalise your website so the essence of you can shine through. This is really important as it shows your prospective clients exactly who they are dealing with. Remember these days people tend to buy from people! It is certainly a large portion of their decision making process.
Layout, Content & Design
A well thought out layout for your website is essential.
You want your potential clients to enjoy the experience of your site.
I will guide you as to what is required to make it succinct and friendly.
I will also take the time to understand you, so that your site reflects who you are.
Other Things To Consider As Added Extras
- Integrate newsletter/sign-up list capability.
- Create a booking form to understand exactly what area of your business the client is interested in.
- To you have products to sell? In which case maybe we will need to implement an online ecommerce shop.
- Install Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) to make your products findable in search engines.
- Links social media engines – LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, etc.
- Integrate Google Analytics to see how website is performing.
Website SEO what? I hear you ask. Well, it stands for Search Engine Optimisation and if you don’t implement it on your website there is a distinct possibility you won’t appear very high up on Search Engines like Google, Yahoo and so on. SEO isn’t for everyone, however it is for most. The idea of SEO is to make sure that websites are updated and that they do what they ‘say on the tin’. Keeping it relevant is integral.
If you are investing in going online we can make sure you have good SEO. It will increase your business.
Your stunning website is built, so now what? It will need to be maintained monthly as updates continually need to be uploaded and content will need to be refreshed on occasion too. I am sure this sounds very unfriendly. Website management is the way forward!
I charge a small monthly fee for website management – to update the site and to make small content changes. This enables you to concentrate on your own business and know your site is in safe hands. I also offer this service to sites that haven’t been built by me so feel free to contact me to enquire on this. You are free to do what you are good at and now you can relax!
