Top Tips for Choosing the Right Web Agency

by Saul Edmonds
5 Top Tips to Use When Hiring a Web Developer.png
“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Kofi Annan

How to Choose a Web Agency

Whether you are looking for a website design or website redesign, the first step in this process is choosing the right web agency for you and your business.

This is an important decision and a key investment. 

The ideal web agency will become a trusted partner in your business strategy, in both the short and long term. Most websites have a 'lifespan' of 2-3 years due to emerging technologies. Getting the 'right' web design will impact your business positively during this time. The 'right' website will deliver a measurable return on your investment. 

Choose a web agency that can deliver a custom designed, high quality web solution tailored to your budget.

Getting Started

Begin with research. Be proactive. Ask other businesses for recommendations. Look through web agency portfolios online. Read testimonials. Develop a clear picture of the style of websites you prefer and types of features you wish to include in your project.

Web Agency Shortlist

Which web agency is the best match for you? Develop a shortlist of potential providers. You may be influenced by geographic location as many people prefer a locally based web agency, however Skype provides an opportunity to meet with designers any where in the world. Also consider the size of agency you are looking for. Smaller, boutique agencies often provide greater flexibility, lower prices and a more personal service than their larger counterparts.

Consultation and Quotation

Make contact with one or more agencies from your shortlist. Discuss your brief in detail. Request a quote and timeframe for your project delivery.

Key Questions 

When reviewing your quote, consider the following questions:

  • Do you feel you can communicate with the web designer? 
  • Do they understand your brand?
  • Are the web designers professionally qualified?
  • Can the agency provide a range of web design services, from CMS to eCommerce and Mobile?
  • Does the web agency have comparable projects to yours in their portfolio?
  • Does the web quote present good value for money while keeping within your budget?
  • Can the web agency provide strategies to market your website on completion?
  • Does the agency understand the importance of social media in online marketing?
  • Can the web agency assist with SEO?
  • Does the web agency offer free after sales support?

    How to Choose A Web Developer

    by Saul Edmonds
    web development

    How to choose the right web developer for your business.

    What is web development?

    The term 'web development' relates to the technical and structural aspects of a website's functionality. It is the 'web developer' that makes a 'web design' work in practical terms.

    Web Development includes such elements as domain management, sitemap architecture, programming, specialist coding and security procedures. 

    Web development is a highly specialised field that includes several disciplines such as web programming, information systems and architecture, internet application as well as an understanding of usability and online marketing.

    A successful and highly converting website needs to 'look good' (with a visually appealing web design) and 'work well' (with integrated web development systems).

    Your Business and Web Development

    Every successful website needs to be 'found online'.

    Professional web development boosts search performance. A well developed website is built to be search engine friendly. SEO (or search engine optimisation) refers to the techniques designed to achieve search rankings for targeted keywords.

    It is estimated that more than 76% of all purchase decisions are made online.

    A well developed website that is highly optimised for keywords is essential for businesses today. To remain competitive, every business should identify their target market. Today that target market is found increasingly online. A well branded, user friendly and professionally developed website will boost profitability.

    Audiences are increasingly sophisticated and well informed. 

    Every website should be designed to meet the requirements of your target market. A professional web development company will take time to understand the specific needs of your prospects and clients. Features and functionalities best suited to conversion and service will be carefully implemented into your website. Every website should be designed and developed for success.

    Choosing the Right Web Developer

    Quality web development is always in demand. Web development is a high growth industry. 

    A customised website should deliver significant ROI. Online marketing and increased online visibility is a must for every business. A marketing plan that includes internet promotion, a social media strategy, eCommerce, email newsletters and SEO will drive traffic and increase profitability.

    A quality website is the foundation of a successful internet marketing campaign. 

    Take care to ensure your web developer is experienced and professionally qualified. 'Cheap' or 'Budget' websites can be false economy. Take time to choose a web developer with an extensive portfolio and client list who can demonstrate proven results. Ask for testimonials. Getting the right website is the best investment your business can make.

      5 Top Benefits of a CMS Website

      by Saul Edmonds

      If you are in the market for a new website or website redesign - you may be considering a Content Management System or CMS. 

      What is a CMS?

      A Content Management System is a system that is used to manage website content. Well known CMS platforms include: wordpress, joomla and squarespace. Managing content refers to the creating, editing, publishing, and distribution of website content. 

      What are the benefits of CMS?

      There are many benefits of having a website with CMS.

      The most important of these is ease of use.

      In fact, at Roundhouse the majority of websites that we develop make use of a CMS. A CMS is our preferred choice for both beginners and established professionals. Read on to find out why.

      1. Easy Editing of Web Content

      A CMS is easy to update.

      No specialist knowledge is required. Every CMS based website owner can easily add their own text, data, blog posts, videos, photos and other content. No technical expertise is required - this saves money as everyone can DIY for website changes. The website owner simply logs in to an Administration panel via the internet.

      Your web developer will ensure that your CMS website is designed for updates. This means that your web design and layout will be structured to maintain visual appearance and functionality - even with the addition of extra pages. No additional 'design fees' are incurred. 

      2. Value for Money

      A CMS Website has a lot of complex functionality built right in. 

      This is a real money saver. 

      A CMS offers the website owner a range of highly sophisticated features that do not require extensive customisation or 'build from scratch'. 

      Every CMS system has an extensive range of options. 

      Such functions include instant mobile site generation, built in social media broadcasts and feeds, built in e-commerce features, image upload and publication from smartphones, instant editing, cross browser compatibility, time-based publishing, seo optimisation and much more. 

      Note that every CMS offers different benefits. Discuss your particular requirements with your web designer.

      3. SEO Optimisation Built In

      A CMS Website is friendly to search engines. 

      This means that the search engine robots are can easily find, read and reference your information. Being found is the key to SEO and achieving search rankings.

      Built in SEO features typically include: easy to customise page titles, headers and meta data; easy to add 'keyword focussed' URLs and easy to customise image alt tags. Optimise these to target your preferred keywords.

      A CMS which features social media sharing integration and a mobile-responsive design will also boost SEO performance significantly.

      4. Design Flexibility

      Even with lots of predefined functionality, a CMS website is still highly customisable. 

      A unique CMS design can be customised to best deliver your brand to your audience. 

      A CMS website should be visually consistent with your brand style and colour. The design should be refined to enhance conversion, where your website visitors become your customers. Pages must be easy to navigate and product information readily found.

      5. Web Analytics

      A key element of any website's success is the monitoring of performance metrics. 

      The CMS website owner can login to view such analytics as traffic (the number of unique website visitors per day), referrers (where the visitors referred from - for example: which specific links, search engines or social platforms did people click from to arrive at your site?), specific search engine queries and more. 

      This is a great way to track the popularity of your website. It helps to better understand your user. A CMS will also provide statistics for page views, time spent on the website, the geo-location of visitors and more.

      A CMS web solution has many benefits. From customisable design, extensive functionality and affordability - it is the ideal solution for most small to medium business owners.

      Roundhouse is a Gold Coast based web design company that specialises in CMS based web design. We develop customised CMS websites to build your brand online. Contact us to discuss your next project.

        8 Essential Ways to Promote Your Website

        by Saul Edmonds
        8 essential ways to promote your website

        8 Cost Effective Strategies For Website Promotion

        At Roundhouse, we specialise in developing websites that work.
        However, a quality website is just the start of the story.

        Every new website needs a clear promotional strategy to ensure it gets seen by the people who matter - your customers, your prospects and your online community.

        Read on for some great ways to promote your website - all without breaking the bank.

        1. Get SEO Built In

        Professional search engine optimisation can be a costly exercise. However, a solid  foundation for your website's search engine performance can be built in from the ground up.

        How? Ask your web designer to include relevant keywords for your business in titles and tags throughout the site. Ensure images and videos are titled according to your key phrase and that your website text is well written and targeted to your niche market. If relevant, add some location information into your text (such as ‘Personal Trainer North Sydney’). 

        Talk to your web designer about low cost ways to boost your seo performance through onsite optimisation.

        2. Domain Email

        Ensure that your email address incorporates your domain name. If you have free accounts at gmail, hotmail, yahoo etc - it is still a good idea to make full use of your website domain name and hosting.

        A domain email is professional representation of your company. It informs people directly about your business, and refers them to your website for more information.

        3. Email Signature

        Be sure to include your website address in your email signature. A detailed email signature gives your correspondents more information about you and your website.

        4. Email Newsletter Campaign

        Send all your contacts an email announcing the launch of your new website. Ask for genuine feedback and request opinions on your web design and site usability. Customers will appreciate that their ideas are valued. Remember that every website should be designed with the user in mind.

        Email newsletters have a good conversion rate and should be a feature of your business marketing schedule on an ongoing basis, ideally monthly. Get talking (and start writing!).

        5. Business Cards

        Every business has a business card. They are the undisputed printing essential for every company - and have yet to be replaced in any meaningful way by a digital version. 

        Always feature your website address prominently on your business card - it makes it easy for people to find you online. Also state your web address throughout your business stationary - from letterheads to flyers and catalogues.

        6. Signage

        Signage advertising is a great way to establish your brand and logo identity in the public space.

        Be sure to clearly feature your website address in all your business signage. This includes shop signage, banners, car signage and more.
        Take every opportunity to get the word out! 

         

        7. Web Competitions and Special Offers

        Announce a competition to celebrate the launch of your website. Offer a highly desirable prize which requires people to visit your new website - such as to fill in a competition entry form. Consider giving specials and deals where appropriate in order to motivate visitors to return on a regular basis.

        8. Articles - Write about your product or service range

        Articles are great for spreading buzz. Plan a weekly article writing schedule targeting relevant yet diverse aspects of your business. Publish some of these articles on your website’s blog if possible - but also submit articles to directories such as squidoo.com. (Ensure that every articles is unique - the same article should not be included both on your blog and submitted to article directories. Google has a very strict policy on the distribution of duplicate content.

        Article distribution will enable potentially hundreds of additional people to locate your new website.

        Conclusion

        Apply these principals when launching your new website to see an immediate boost in visitors.

        Keep in mind that web promotion is an ongoing project. Spend a little time every day spreading the word about your website - and your business will thank you for it!
