Why Do You Need A Website?

Even if you are a shop on the high street of Cardiff and have your customers coming in your physical front door, a website is still necessary.

We live in a new world, a digital world and most of us will visit a companies website first before visiting the company.  Whether you are a butcher on the Cardiff high street, a farmer just outside the city, a plumber or an architect.

Your website is your shop window, people will judge you whatever your business is based on your website.

Every business in Cardiff is different but all will need a website, whether it is a basic website with 3-4 pages, or an e-commerce website with thousands.

What Kind Of Website Do You Need?

When it comes to price, the question of what kind of website do you need?

Brochure style websites are fairly simple to create to showcase your products or services.

If you are an architect or a plumber, a brochure style website would be ideal, comprising of anything from 5 – 50 pages.

If you are looking to take online payments (such as Amazon or another online store), an e-commerce website would be better suited.

How Much Would Web Design Cost?

This is not a simple question, as there are a number of factors to consider:

  • How many pages would there be?
  • Would you require a payment gateway?
  • What about marketing, to get visitors?
  • What web platform would you need (WordPress, Joomla etc.)?

Of course all web designers in Cardiff set their own rates, so it is important to shop around and compare.  Larger web designers in Cardiff will charge more because they have higher running costs and higher profit margins that freelancers or smaller agencies.  However paying more will not necessarily get you a better website.

Have you considered the website content?  Who would write the content of your website, you or the web designer?

If you can be involved in producing the content, your message should come across clearer since no-one knows your business like you do.

Communicate Your Message

All web design companies in Cardiff carry different industry experience.  Some will have worked with finance companies, agricultural companies, construction, engineering.

All industry sectors in the UK are different, each company in each industry needs to fit in yet stand out.

Can a web design company that has lots of clients in the health and beauty sector produce a corporate website for a bank such as TSB?

We would advise that no, they probably would not create a website that fits into the financial sector and that communicates trust to the banks customers.

Consider Your Marketing

Once your website is set up, that is not job done.  You need to get visitors to the site.

In the short term, PPC advertising is a good option, quick to set up and you should start getting enquiries within a couple of weeks (hopefully).

Long term, SEO to get you ranked on the search engines, but this takes time (certainly if you are in a competitive industry such as insurance or marketing).

A big part of marketing is content creation.  Search engines rate your website based on your website content.

New content in particular is important for your website being found online, as any web designer in Cardiff would tell you.  The blog is a great way to create new content, will you write new posts, or do you need the agency to (or a content creator)?

Social media is a big area for marketing these days, not just from getting tweets, Facebook likes and shares, but for SEO.  The search engines now place a lot of trust on social media platforms, so your ‘social media footprint’ needs to be there regularly.

Comparing Multiple Quotes Is Important

Web design prices in Cardiff do vary, mainly because all web designers are private companies and set their own fees.

Price is always a crucial factor when it comes to design work; indeed a cheap website is not generally the best, and the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ applies. But there is no point in paying for a more elaborate site than you need, so comparing quotes in the light of your ‘brief’, which should be as detailed as possible, is always a wise thing.

As mentioned, all web designers are different.  Some have been designing websites for 6 months, some 6 years and some since the internet first landed.  Some have experience working in the farming industry, engineering or retail.  Choosing someone local that knows your industry sector will only deliver you a great website that communicates your message.
