As a small business, we understand that you have a limited budget. However, that definitely doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on quality when it comes to your website. So, without further ado, here are some cost effective web solutions for SMEs.
If you specialise in one area or service, such as hairdressing, then we can build a simple one-page site that gives your customers all the information that they need in one quick view. This type of site uses anchor text to pull users to desired sections of the page, so it can still be optimised for SEO.
With a chatbot, you can easily capture leads from your website and respond to your customers’ burning questions quickly and easily. And if you aren’t on hand at that moment, then you can simply get back to them via email once you’re free. Chatbot features can be edited to suit the needs of your business, so they’re ideal for companies of all sizes.
Instead of coding two versions of your site (one for desktop and one for mobile), we can simply design your site to be responsive to the device that it is accessed on. What this means is that your site will automatically serve the layout that is best for the device and so you only need one version of its code.
A good CMS
A content management system (CMS) is a platform that allows you to edit a website without having to understand code. This then allows users to add content such as blogs and updates, or make tweaks to the site’s content without having to contact a web developer to do it for you. An example of a CMS that everybody knows and loves is WordPress, but there is a plethora of others, too.
Leading on from our last point, having a blog on your site is a fantastic way to bring in free, organic traffic. All it takes is the time to research blog topics and write compelling content. If you don’t fancy yourself a write, then you can also hire out blog writing services for fairly low costs.
