Why You Need A Website

These days, every company needs to have a website.  Whether you need it or not, every company needs to have a ‘presence’ whether you are restaurant in Oxgangs or Ravelston golf club.

Your website is your ‘shop window’ and it is often the first place that your customers will go to before coming to you in person.

Your website needs to reflect your brand, and to look modern.  Most of us can tell the different between a modern website and a dated one.

What Kind Of Website Do You Need?

Are you an established company that needs something more bespoke?  Are you a new company on a budget?

Some of the following points should be considered when getting quotes:

  • How many pages are needed?
  • Would you like regular content created?
  • What about social media ‘tweeting’?
  • Do you need a payment gateway?

We want to help you find the ‘right’ web designer in Edinburgh for you, not necessarily the cheapest.  We have put together 7 tips on choosing a web design company in Edinburgh that may help you.

Certain businesses are well suited to certain web platforms like WordPress, but some are not well suited.

Not all web designers in Edinburgh work with certain website platforms so it is wise to find out which web platform is best for you, then find the web designer.

What Web Platform Is Needed?

35% of all websites are built using WordPress, which is a well established platform. There are over 15,000 plugins to customise your website and make it truly unique.

Joomla is another web platform that is available to both large corporates, and small companies in Edinburgh.

Webflow is another popular web platform that is used by web agencies in Edinburgh, and nationally.  It is used by over 3.5 million designers around the world.

We do advise talking to different agencies, to get a good feel for which platform is best for you, for your products and your services.

The Next Step Is Marketing

Once your website is created, the hard work begins, getting people to it.

The search engines do not know you and it will take time to rank you.  If you are a new business/website, you will go to the bottom of the search results since you have no history and the search engines do not know you.

For this reason, you need to put in a lot of hard work in order to get onto page 1 of the search results for your particular keywords.

There are lots of options available at this stage, which led to be considered carefully.

  • SEO – Getting you ranked in the organic results will take time and could be expensive depending on how competitive your industry is and how many competitors there are locally.
  • PPC – PPC advertising is a short cut to appearing on the search engines.  Each time someone clicks on your advert you pay a small fee of around £2.00.
  • Social Media – Social media websites like Facebook and LinkedIn are free of charge to use.  There are sponsored options should you wish for more exposure which are more competitive than search engine paid options.

Not all web designers in Edinburgh can help you with ongoing marketing.  Some do offer digital marketing but it may be wise to get quotes for this also rather than you using them for marketing just because they are designing your website.

The main thing that search engines look for is how relevant your website is.  A blog is a great way to add new website content, again something that search engines like for ongoing ranking.

Compare Prices Locally

All web design agencies in Scotland set their own prices; large agencies normally charge more than freelancers due to their experience, resources and overheads.

There is no industry standard for web design so it is good to shop around and find a local designer that is cost effective for your budget, as website design prices do vary.

Choosing a web designer that is right is important in order to get the right look and feel for your site.
