Your Virtual Shop Window

In today’s world, every business needs to have a website, whether you are an online shop like Amazon, or St Cuthbert Mayne School in Hele Cross.

Your website is an investment and is what your customers will rate your business on.  Your website needs to reflect your brand and therefore needs to look up to scratch.

Your website is your shop window, it needs to be attractive and modern.

Choosing Someone Local

When choosing web designers in Torquay, it is important to find out about their experience.  Even though there are hundreds of web designers in Devon, using someone local is preferable.  

The websites they produce may all look good, but it does not necessarily mean that they will work well.

Having a background in your industry means that they know what kind of designs will work for you, how to set up the layout of the site, etc.  Different websites work well in different industries, and some do not.  

It is advisable to arrange a meeting with them, to chat through ideas face to face, get to know the team, see where they work, and quiz them about their track records.  

It is also advisable to chat to some of their current clients, find out what the service is like, what their reaction times are like, are they getting a ROI (return on their investment), and are they seeing fruit?  Get some advise on the web development platform they will use.  

Will a WordPress website be best, or Joomla, or a different one?  There are in addition many larger website design agencies in Plymouth that can help if needed.

Consider Your Marketing

Once your website is created, the hard work begins, getting people to it.  After all, what is the point in having a website if no-one visits it?

Getting website visitors is not an easy job, the internet is a big place with billions of websites.

If your business is in a competitive industry (such as insurance or marketing) then you will have a lot of competition, possibly with deep pockets.

  • Pay Per Click Advertising – In the short term, PPC advertising is a quick way to get website visitors.  By sponsoring your keywords in your area of the UK, your advert should appear at the top of the search engines whatever hours of the day you wish.  PPC advertising is quite complicated so using a specialist to set it up and monitor it for you.  Not all web designers in Torquay can do PPC advertising, so it may well be worth getting quotes on this separately.
  • Search Engine Optimisation – SEO is going to be the long term goal, having your website appearing in the organic results of the search engines.  However appearing on page 1 of the search results will take time as you are competing against well established businesses that have been online for some time.  Again, depending on how competitive your industry is, it may take a lot of time and a lot of money.  SEO is specialist and few web designers in Torquay can do it.

Marketing of your website is just as important as getting a website created.

Marketing takes time and is never over, it is the job that requires dedication and experience.

Compare Web Design Prices

As there are lots of web design agencies in Torquay it is advisable to shop around and compare quotes.  

All web design companies will charge a different amount for the same site, as there are no set design rates, and website design prices vary depending on their overheads, staff numbers and profits.

It is not about comparing quotes to find the cheapest web designer, but the ‘right’ web design agency for your business in Torquay.

Torquay in a Few Words

It is nicely situated on the south coast of England in the county of Devon.  

There has been a human presence in the town since the time of prehistoric man as hand axes have been found around ‘Kent Cavern’, a cave system formed by rivers thousands of years ago.  Even Roman offerings were found at the caves, despite there having been no Roman presence in the area.  

It has always been a town of fishing and agriculture.

During the war years of 1939-44 the town was considered one of the safest places on the south coast, and evacuees were sent there.  

It now has an economy based around tourism (chosen for the comedy series ‘Fawlty Towers’ by John Cleese), and has a population of around 70,000 according to council statistics.
