Why Did You Need A Website?

There are thousands of companies in Suffolk, from the normal companies you would find in the capital cities of Ipswich and Bury St Edmonds such as banks and pubs, to smaller companies based in the towns and villages.

All companies in Suffolk require a website in our modern digital world, but all companies in Suffolk require one for different reasons.  For pubs or hair dressers, a basic website is needed just as a point of reference.  E-commerce businesses that take online payments need a website to actually function.

If you require something basic, you can actually build one yourself.  There are many website building programs that can create a very professional looking website, however they may lack the functionality of a website created by an experienced web designers in Suffolk.

Here are some of the well known web building websites:

  • Wix
  • WordPress
  • Fasthosts
  • Shopify
  • Squarespace
  • Hubspot

Most of the above have been created so they are very easy to use.  We live in a very multicultural society in the UK so they have been created to be accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Choosing A Local Web Design Agency

As there are hundreds of creative agencies in the county to choose from, working with someone that is local does come with its advantages.  There is normally a kind of loyalty that comes with working with an agency on your doorstep, arising from the opportunity to meet in person to discuss designs in depth.  

Selecting a web agency that has worked in your market is also something that is good to do; by looking at the agencies track record of clients this should give you a feel for how well they know your market.

Choosing The Right Web Design Platform

All websites are build on a website platform, and each one is different from the other.  Some businesses in Suffolk would be suited to one website platform, whereas some would be suited to a different one. 

Here are some of the popular website design platforms:

  • WordPress
  • Joomla
  • GoDaddy
  • Weebly
  • Webflow
  • Shopify

Most web design agencies in Suffolk only design on one or two different web platforms, so it is important to select a designer that can design on the platform that is right for your business.

Do Not Forget Your Marketing

Once your website is live, nothing will happen, since the search engines do not know it.  You need to do marketing so that the search engines can index your website and rank it in the search results.

Brand new websites go right to the back and have to work in order to get onto page 1.  For competitive industry sectors, more work is needed to be done to get onto page 1 for your chosen keywords and search terms.

Internet marketing is needed, which comprises of a few different areas of marketing:

  • SEO or search engine optimisation
  • PPC or pay per click marketing
  • Social Media

Very few website design agencies in Suffolk can do digital marketing, since it is very specialist and very new as marketing goes.  Once your website is live, what you need is website visitors.

Search engine optimisation or website optimisation is very much an unknown, since the search engines ranking algorithm is known only to them.

PPC advertising is very popular with small and large companies, since it is a quick way to get people that key in your search terms (such as solicitors in Ipswich or builders in Bury St Edmonds).

Social media is a very new and powerful form of marketing, and the best part is that it is free of charge to use.  It just takes time to produce posts, tweets and videos.  Websites like TikTok get millions of people viewing videos each day.  Facebook is also very popular.

Each social media platform is different, choosing the right social media platform for your business is important, as not all may be suited to your brand.

Compare Multiple Web Design Prices

As Suffolk is mainly rural web design prices tend to be a little lower in terms of hourly rates than from web design agencies based further south in London or other cities where overheads such as rent and staff costs are higher.  

However it is worth looking around at different website design agencies.  They range from budget to very expensive; however, as they are the first thing that customers will see of your business on enquiring, there is the need to have the best ‘shop window’ possible at the best price.

It is not about comparing quotes in order to find the cheapest quote, as you would with insurance, that is not how marketing works.  It is about comparing quotes to find the ‘right’ web design agency in Suffolk for your particular business.

Suffolk In A Few Words

This county which forms part of  East Anglia is in the east of England.  

It has just under a million people within the county and covers roughly 1,500 sq miles.  

Historically this area was low lying fens that commonly flooded, and has many stone age artefacts.  

The main city in the county is Ipswich and the area is best known for farming and tourism (something the council are pushing).  

One notable character was Simon Sudbury who was made Archbishop Of Canterbury in 1375, crowned Richard II, was captured in the Peasants Revolt and beheaded.

His body was buried in Canterbury and his head in Sudbury, Suffolk.

Other notable people from here include composer Benjamin Britten and painters Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable.
