Useful tips for creating a website:

  • Think about what your customers want to know, not just what you want to tell them.
  • Use professionals to help you. An unprofessional website can potentially put customers off.
  • Update your website regularly, especially if you include information about your prices.
  • Make sure your contact details are correct and easy for your customers to find.
  • Promote your website in your marketing material and include it on your business cards.
  • Find out how you can make your website easy for search engines, such as Google, to find.
  • This is called search engine optimisation (SEO).
  • So the only thing you need to do is choose a domain name and personalised email account names. 
  • Then you’re off and running, it’s promoting your business in any way you want.
