You need a website, a new one, a replacement, but have you considered the following:
Will you be producing the content for each page (the text and information about your products/services)?
Most web designers in Mansfield will be happy to produce your website content or use a junior copywriter to do it. However no-one knows your business better than you, so one way or another, you do need to be involved to ensure your message is communicated effectively.
The hosting of your website is actually quite important, for a few reasons.
Some web design companies in Mansfield can host your website if they have servers, for a monthly fee. However is this best for you?
There are a large number of web hosting companies in the UK such as Fasthosts and Godaddy which you may have heard of. Shopping around for quotes before hand may be wise, costs vary from £20 up to around £60 depending on the size of your website.
Once your website is created, that is where the work begins; you need to get people to it and enquiring.
As soon as your website is produced, it needs to be found on the search engines, and this takes time for them to go through it and rank it. This will be an upward struggle, as you are a new fish in an already established pond.
In the long term, SEO is needed (this is quite complicated, but it is basically doing work around the website to ensure it appears on page 1 for your search terms. Depending on how competitive your industry is, this could take months or could take years!
In the short term, PPC advertising is good, to get you to page 1 for your search terms for a small fee (this could be £3.00 up to £20,00 upwards for a click).
Social media marketing is quite new in the marketing world, and could be very effective for you as it has been for many modern brands. Social media marketing is free, if you have time, give it a go; if not, talking to a social media marketing company is a good idea.
For companies around the town it does make sense using a local agency rather than web designers in Nottingham, London or even further away.
Working with someone local means that you can have the chance to get to know them, get to know the team and chat through the kind of site that you are after.
Most do shy away from meetings as it takes time away from designing for other clients (less profitable). However in today’s economy, getting value for money is important.
Choosing a web designer who knows your industry is also very important; asking them what sites they have produced for companies similar to yours and having a look through their portfolio is a worthwhile action.
It may also be good to chat to some of their current clients, to find out what they are like to work with; can they keep to deadlines and are they providing value for money?
As all web design agencies in Mansfield are different, the rates they charge are also different. It is important to look around and compare website design prices so as to avoid paying over the odds.
No-one likes overspending and as they can be very expensive, it is important to compare quotes in order to get the best deal.
The small town of Mansfield is situated in Nottinghamshire in the centre of England.
Originally the name comes from that of the River Maun, which the town lies alongside.
It is known for its coal industry, which boomed around the Industrial Revolution, and its brewing industry;. The brewery was the largest independent brewer in the UK until it was bought out in 1999.
As the coal and brewing sectors have declined, the town has declined with people becoming more involved in the services industry, or commuting to neighbouring Nottingham.
