Web design

Show off to the world all day, everyday.

  • Help customers remember your web site address.

    Your website address, also known as domain name, is what customers type into their Internet browsers to find your website. It is also what comes up in search results.

    • Make it easily identifiable by using your company name or your main product or service
    • Try to keep it short and snappy.
    • Avoid words that are hard to pronounce or remember, as well as special characters such as hyphens.

    Tell customers what you exactly offer.

    Potential customers are busy, so make sure you get to the point quickly, before they leave your site and take their business elsewhere.

    • Help customers understand the range of your products and services by including details
    • Describe the types of customers that you serve so you can create the right expectations
    • Check for misspellings, repeated words and incorrect grammar
    • Don’t use jargon or fancy language

    Show your customers why you’re special.

    Give people reasons to do business with you.

    • Include your three of four unique selling points
    • Include any awards, customer testimonials, reviews or news coverage about your business
    • Get a second opinion from a friend to see what information they find most compelling

    Highlight qualifications and experience.

    Help establish trust with your customers.

    • Show qualifications and industry credentials
    • Make sure your logos are shown prominently on each page
    • Include customer testimonials or reviews

    Get the right content.

    Use good photography

    Pictures encourage customers to contact you

    • Show authentic photos of your products, your store, facilities, equipment and friendly staff
    • Make sure your images are well-lit and in focus. 600 pixels by 400 pixels is a good rule of thumb for image quality.
    • Be careful that the background isn’t distracting.
    • Write clear captions for each image with relevant information such as product characteristics, dimensions, weight, prices and whether it’s available in store

    Make it easy for customers to find you.

    Tell them where you are

    • Include the basic information customers need to find you. e.g. an address and map
    • Give directions that are simple and easy to undertand for customers commuting by foot, car and public transport
    • Be specific in your descriptions, e.g. if you can travel to your clients, be clear about how far you can travel. If you deliver, what’s your delivery area?

    Show what you charge.

    Keep potential clients from searching high and low

    • The more comprehensive information you can provide about your prices, the better
    • State what is and isn’t included, so people don’t wonder about hidden extras
    • Make sure special offers and promotions are easy to find
    • State clearly if your rates vary

    Make it easy to contact you.

    • Provide multiple contact options, e.g. phone, email, fax, and online forms. Display them prominently
    • Keep your online forms short: name, phone number and comments
    • Display your hours of operation in your ‘contact us’ page
    • Make sure you answer emails, phone calls and inquiries quickly

    Keep your content fresh.

    Update your site regularly and give your customers a reason to keep coming back

    • Include on the homepage information that keeps customers up-to-date with special offers, new products and events
    • If you use social media for business, include their links on the webite
    • Give customers the option to sign up for a newsletter from you but make sure you can send out regular updates

    Be found on search engines like google.

    How google search engines work.

    Many customers will turn to search engines like Google to learn more about your business. They type into the search box ‘keywords’, which are relevant words or phrases about your business. As a result, two different types of search results appear:

    • ‘Natural search results are determined by Google’s search algorithm and cannot be altered.
    • ‘Paid’ search results show up as ‘ads’ on top or on the righthand side of ‘organic search results. They are served through through Google’s advertising platform, Google AdWords.

    Help your web site be found in natural search results.

    • There is no magic pill for appearing ‘on top’ of the Google search results. At any point in time, the Google search algorithm will show only the most relevant website in response to what people are searching for.
    • Make sure your website has it’s own .com.au web address so it can be identifiable in natural search results
    • List your website on Google Places so you can appear in local search results
    • Help Google understand what your website is about by including as much relevant content as possible, such as descriptions of your business, photos and news.

    Help your web site be found through paid search ads.

    Through Google AdWords you can show text ads as paid search results alongside organic search results, at the exact moment when people are searching for related products or services.

    The two types of search results are independent of each other so paid search is a quick way to improve your online visibility even if your website doesn’t have a high ranking in natural search results.

    Google AdWords is a powerful and cost-effective way to get new customers to your website.

    • You can control whether you want to show your ads to people searching in your town, city, or anywhere in the world.
    • Pay only for results. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad and connects to your website.Also, you control how much you spend each day—and how much you’re willing to pay per click.
    • No obligation. There’s no minimum term or commitment.
