Q: Does my business really need a website?

A: We live in a world that relies on the internet. Around 40% of the world population has an internet connection today – that’s over 3 billion people!

A website can reach a wide audience that might not otherwise be available to you. A website is available 24/7 and allows potential customers to find out more about your business, products and services at their convenience.

Q: I am happy with my website, why should I have it redesigned?

A: Design and coding trends are always changing. Something that was build even three years ago is now out of date.

It is important to show your customers that you are proactive and are not standing still. The first impression a customer or potential customer gets depends on the appearance of your website. A visitor will be interested and explore your site if it is appealing, easy to navigate and offers useful information.

Q: I don’t have any technical knowledge, can I still have a website designed for my business?

A: Of course! We take care of the whole process from start to finish and explain things in language you can understand.

Q: Do I need a mobile website?

A: The world has officially gone crazy for smart phones. Recently mobile internet usage has overtaken the PC, so now it’s more important than ever to embrace mobile technologies and make your website compatible for all devices.

There are two options: have a sperarate mobile website, or make your website mobile responsive. In most cases we suggest having a responsive website as it’s better for search engines, easier to manage one website and caters for all visitors.

Q: What is website hosting, do I need it?

A: Hosting is essential as it provides a home for your website on the web. When you visit a website you are requesting data from the server where the website is hosted.

We provide lightning fast, secure hosting at a reasonable cost. We also take care of uploading your website once it is ready to go live.

Q: What is a domain name and how do I get one?

A: A domain name is your website’s address, so our domain name is: www.thewebtaylor.com. Purchasing a domain name can be a daunting task for someone who hasn’t done it before. We offer domain registration and management to all clients.

Q: How can I get more visitors to my website?

This is the process whereby a website is optimised to be read and indexed by the search engines. By conducting specific SEO activities for your website, The Web Taylor can help improve your position within search results and therefore increase your number of visitors.
