A website can be a powerful marketing tool
 

Having a professionally built and well-maintained website can help you gain a competitive advantage against your competition, while also improving your business image and credibility. Having an online presence can offer extensive benefits:

Increase your visibility. Consider the potential market you can reach with it, allowing your business to break through the geographical barriers and become accessible from anywhere in the world.

It is always accessible. A website is available to customers 24/7/365, providing them with the convenience of reviewing your services and products, even when your business office is closed.

A website targets a wider market. It’s a great place to promote your business. Whether you are selling products or services, with a website you can make them available globally. No matter what type of business you are in, a website is a great place to showcase your work.

A website will save you time, money and improves productivity. Providing information to customers takes time; telephone calls, face to face meetings and answering emails, to mention just a few. With an online catalog of your products and services, you can provide all the information your customers need 24/7, saving you time and providing the opportunity to engage better with your customers, giving them an excellent service.

Clearly, your website has the potential to be your most powerful asset and the centerpiece of your marketing efforts. But, it is vital that a website is geared towards satisfying consumers expectations; it is an engaging experience, with high-quality content and functionality that makes e-commerce an enjoyable and simple experience.

From Responsive Design to Content Management System (CMS), Google Analytics to Search Engine Optimization (SEO), to mention some, you can create a website that it is not only attractive but functional for you and your audience.

Investing in good web design could turn out to be the most profitable business decision you will ever make. Whether having a website designed brand new for the first time or redesigning an existing one, the hiring decision you make will dictate your website success.

With so many web design companies to choose from, it can become overwhelming deciding which one is the right fit for your business. But actually, the best approach is to use a thorough hiring process. Find out in detail how they work.

At Folio Web Design, we have a very particular approach. We start the process with an initial discussion. We arrange a meeting to come in to discuss your business and your objectives for the website. Our aim is to understand how you operate and how best we can provide our services to you. To create the best website for your business, we take time to understand you, your brand and business goals.

After our meeting, we produce a proposal based on our discussions, and if you are happy with our proposal, a series of steps are followed in order to deliver exactly what we have agreed. From design process throughout the development process, we'll provide you with a staging area. This will allow you to see the progress we are making and allow you to provide feedback on the look and feel of the site. We'll ask you to test the functionality as the site is being built. This keeps delays to a minimum and satisfaction to the max.

Once the new Website gets launch, we'll provide full training for your staff and with a maintenance contract, we'll always be there to help. There's no point having a new site if you don't know how to use it. From Hosting to Business Emails to Search Engine Optimisation, all of these features are standard in our designs.

We aim to keep our business process as simple as possible, but what it is very important, is that you are kept informed every step of the way and we are always available to discuss the design evolution of your site. We want you to be totally happy with every aspect of your new website.

It's our commitment to detail that sets us apart. We aim to build a long-lasting relationship through trust and commitment. We see ourselves as your business partner, because “Your success is our success”.
