Website Service Plans

Every website owners needs are different and from our experience some need more assistance than others, so we have developed a range of affordable plans to suit most needs and budgets.

Our four website service plans have been built around the requests from clients for different services over the last few years, most noticeably the need for more frequent backups, as CMS based web design has grown so has the sofistication of its users, we have actively watched some of our sites grow from 70 visits a month to 5,500 visitors a month, and the amount of content grow from a basic website to 100's of pages - more users and more pages mean more to lose should your website fail.

As more clients signed up to our website service plans we built a support desk to handle requests for assistance rather than just relying on emails, here you will be able to raise support tickets, watch, manage and interact with the process of dealing with these support tickets all in one place and of course alongside this we have developed a series of help files as a 'how to' guide to growing and maintaining your website.

Email Marketing

So you have your website, along with the other 861,379,000 websites that form the internet (Numbers current to January 2014) so how are you going to drive traffic to it? well there are a number of different ways to advertise your business on-line including, listing it with the major search engines, adding your listing to the major business directories, using social media - don't forget the power of Facebook. But our experience shows that one of the most successful is email marketing, to put it simply you can track, what, where, when and who opened your email, and what links they clicked on, oh and when they did it, using our monthly reports.Example:So if you sold shoes online, and I was clicking on brown shoes, why would you try and sell me black shoes? Think about it the power of email marketing lies in the statistical information that  can be provided. Read more about how email marketing can help your business.

SMS Marketing

If your business also collects mobile numbers as part of your data collection process, then SMS Marketing could be great for you. SMS Marketing is your route to staying intouch with your existing clients, and not letting your prospects slip away to your competitors, hands up who takes their mobile phones with them everywhere? Hands up who checks their mobile phones even when in meetings? I bet 90% of your office or work place would admit to one or both of these, and now with wearable technology coming along SMS Marketing is fast becoming the route to getting immediate action from your marketing spend.
