Yet most small to medium sized businesses either have ineffective websites, or no website at all! In fact,

Over 98% of businesses are not taking full advantage of their online opportunities!

5 things we've learnt about business websites

Since 2004 we have worked with over 700 business owners to get more new enquiries, increase their sales and improve the image of their companies online. We like to think we've learnt a thing or two over that time!:

  1. First impressions count - our design team can give you a fantastic looking website tailor made to your business.
  2. The way the text is written makes a big difference - our copywriters can produce well written, customer focussed and search engine friendly copy to convince your customers that you are the right company for them.
  3. Why have a website if it can’t be found? We have a team of experts who can help your website get above your competitors in Googles search results - as well as promote you in Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn.
  4. Websites go out of date quickly - Our unique, flexible content management system JDR Enterprise allows you access to your own website and makes it easy for someone with only basic computer skills to update the text and pictures, and even add and delete pages.
  5. Online sales websites don’t always work! Just creating an online shop is not enough to give you a flood of orders - the right design, functionality and ongoing management and optimisation are critical to making your online business a success.

Choosing the right company to create or promote your website, mobile website or mobile app is an important decision and we have designed this website to give you information to help you make informed choices. You can see lots of examples of websites we have worked on, testimonials from other business owners who have made the decision to work with us, useful articles and information about the full range of services we can provide, and more articles by Will Williamson.

How to get Google reviews for your local SEO

Most business owners get contacted regularly by companies offering to 'get you to the first page of Google'. But surely they can't all be right can they? Not everyone can be on page one can they?

How do you do it?

If your company mainly deals with customers from your local area, then you need to ask your search engine optimisation company about Google Places.

From an SEO perspective, Google Places uses a different algorithm to Google’s usual results and if you want to be ahead of the competition, you need a company that can get you found...
