The Internet & Web Design Service A Must For Rural Businesses

DISPELLING THE MYTHS

The internet is huge business and if you do not have a web site you are considered to be living in the dark ages, unless you have an understanding of how it all works it all seems rather too complicated to manage yourself.  Hence the dramatic increase in Web Design Consultants, YES US TOO! unfortunately there is a tendency to use technical jargon to make it seem more complicated than it really is giving justification for the exorbitant fees that are being charged. 

After all a web site is merely an electronic version of a brochure and if a printer wanted thousands of pounds to design and print one for us there would be no brochures out there.  Fair enough an e-commerce site is a little more complicated but not that much.

From a business prospective a web site makes sense as it is permanent advertising world wide, informing everyone about your business and what you have to offer and an easy reference to direct enquiries, providing full information about your business, goods and or service.  A dedicated business email address presents an enhanced professional image to the market you are trying to attract, reinforcing your professionalism and creating confidence.

There are a host of programmes out there specifically designed to enable anyone with a little computer knowledge to design and manage their own web site without the need for loads of technical knowledge such as Microsoft FrontPage (my favourite) or Dreamweaver etc.  Web designers have frequently informed me not to use FrontPage as it is considered inferior yet every web host I have come across is always up dating to the latest FrontPage release.  The truth is that these sort of programmes enable everyone to do the job themselves, saving thousands of pounds in web design fees.

If you do decide to use a web designer ensure that you are in a position to manage your web site on a day to day basis, and having made this decision here are some of the reasons why we would like you to consider using our service
