The website options we offer and how we work.
It is now generally accepted in today’s ever competitive marketplace that every business (big or small) needs to have a web presence. Websites are considered to be the second most powerful advertising tool available, second only to direct referrals by word of mouth.
We understand the importance of designing a website solution that meets the needs of your business and more importantly the message you are conveying to your target audience.
E-Commerce is an increasingly important aspect of any business and if you currently still only offer sales by post, telephone or fax you are definitely missing out on potential sales from the ever increasing number of online shoppers. Don’t be put off by assuming that an e-commerce solution is out of the financial reach of your business, we offer competitive packages to meet all budgets and needs.
An ecommerce solution is no longer only a luxury for larger companies. Many smaller niche markets have introduced online shopping facilities which have greatly benefited the companies by increased sales and allowed for a global reach of their company and products than they ever imagined possible.
We will work with your company to find the solution that best fits your company’s needs whether you have 1 or 10000 products to sell. We are with you all the way and you can be sure that the solution we offer is unique for you only.
If your website is a few years old and is looking slightly outdated why not consider refreshing the design with a makeover? It’s amazing how a small change in layout or colour scheme can give the site a whole new look and feel. Also, remember that ‘content is king’ so be sure to update your text and keep the content fresh.
A makeover ranges from a small ‘freshen up’ to adding extra functionality such as a clients area, online catalogue or newsletter system. There is so much more to be gained from your site if its full potential is realised.
Improve Client Focus: The existing website does not produce results. In these cases, the existing website focused on the company’s greatness and generally ignored the client’s problems. This format causes the visitor to quickly lose interest in the website and click away.
Enhance Design: The existing website does not support business objectives. The website may look attractive and even get good traffic, but it does not convert visitors to clients. The website does not hit client hot buttons and does not facilitate the client to take an action (buy product, complete enquiry form, etc.)
Improve Search Engine Performance: The existing website cannot be found in Google. In today’s very competitive search engine environment, a website must frequently be designed from the ground up to rank well for your given search terms in Google. We do have techniques for improving search engine performance without dramatic changes to the existing website.
Freshen-up the Look: The existing website looks boring. The colors are dark or drab. There are no rollovers and few or poor quality photos. The text may be on a dark or textured background that is hard to read. We can usually give these types of sites a quick visual makeover in just a few weeks.
At Ely Web Solutions, we have staff that have been involved with every aspect of the internet since 1995 and in doing so have developed an orderly procedure that has been proven to work time and time again.
The Initial Consultation: This meeting will take place at your premises and is totally free without any obligation. The goal is to develop your ideas and discuss the way forward. We will answer any questions you may have about the design process and make suggestions on the best way to reach your potential audience.
Estimate Preparation: Once you have decided that you are confident with our business plan for your website we will prepare a detailed estimate for the cost of the project.
Signing of Agreement: Once you have accepted our estimate we will prepare a standard agreement for you to sign. This will outline all work we intend to do along with the costing estimate. Upon signing the agreement a 50% deposit will be due.
Production: We will now collate all the information we need from you. This will be the text and graphic content we will need to create the initial template. We will assist you in pulling together the text, logo, graphics, and photographs needed for the site.
Page Layout Drafts: It is our policy to keep you the client fully informed of every step we take in the design process. After all, it is your website we are designing for YOU! Access to your website will be granted through your very own control panel. Here you will be able to view your website’s progress.
Launch and Marketing: Payment balance is due and payable at the time when the site is uploaded to the server and is “live”. Once your website is launched we will submit your website to Google and will monitor your rankings in Google to ensure you get a high placement.
