SEO – Search Engine Optimisation, Website Design, Website Portfolio, Website Promotion & Social Media For Small Companies
After years of building websites for people, I have just assembled a website to advertise my website design service. My main business is computer repairs and support for companies and home users in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, but have gradually evolved my website skills to build a number of websites for friends and local companies.
I pride myself in building sites that’s first purpose is to get relevant visitors (new customers for you) to the website. I always consider this first before any other aspect of design. I like to keep sites simple and have design skills for small websites, but am happy to work with any artist designer to enhance your website.
I am also willing to help you improve the performance of your existing website & internet presence. This means I can set up systems, provide advice & tasks for you to action, all with the aim of getting your website more relevant visitors.

Only Choice For Site Hosting – Isomerise Website Design Gloucester
After years of building websites for people I have just assembled a website to advertise my website design service. My main business is computer repairs and support for companies and home users in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, but have gradually evolved my website skills to build a quantity of websites for friends and local companies.
The Best UK Website Hosting Company From Experience
I have built nearly 40 websites over the last 5 years, some to learn my trade, many for customers and friends companies and a few content sites to earn advertising revenue. I have tried various hosting companies including free hosting, website companies where I earn a large commission for introducing new customers.
These have not quite hit the mark for me so now I always recommend “Krystal UK Web Hosting”
Reasons I Will Recommend…
- Not the cheapest, but works out cheap if you need between 2-10 sites.
- Genuine UK hosting so Google knows you are UK based.
- Very good support staff, they go the extra mile.
- Never had any down time.
- Very informative knowledge-base and easy to understand.
- A very good selection of Apps you can install for inexperienced website owners.
About Budget Websites
A budget website typically costs £30 per year for domain name and to host on the Internet. A custom website can then be built for you to match your price or possibly we could implement a “WordPress Website” so you can expand your own site with a little guidance from me.
Typically cheaper websites have fewer pages, less intricate design and don’t usually have pay online features.
I can deliver a cheap website solution for your business.
I see a cheap website as a dip in the water for potential customers. Once a cheaper website has started performing and getting new business the natural progression is to then expand the cheap website gradually to cover all aspects of your business.
Web Site Promotion
How To Promote Your Website
After years of building websites for people I have just assembled a website to advertise my website design service. I pride myself in building sites that’s first purpose is to get relevant visitors (new customers for you) to the website. I always consider this first before any other aspect of design.
A website can be promoted in lots of ways, although a promotion strategy will very much depend on your products or services and your target market.
Example Website Promotion Strategies
Search Engine Promotion – Getting visitors from potential customers using any of the major search engines, including Google, Yahoo & Bing. More about Search Engine Promotion.
Promotion Using Social Networks – Using social networks to connect and build relationships with potential customers to your website.
Online Advertising – There are lots of ways you can purchase advertising space on websites to promote your brand. This very much depends on budgets and your target audience.
Videos & Multimedia – Some products or services can be promoted by creating videos and multimedia. Some of these go very viral bringing vast numbers of visitors to your website. YouTube is the most popular. Example : Andy Field Magician Put a few videos on YouTube to save on website bandwidth for some demo visitors for his magician business. He is now the 2nd most popular magician online and has had more than 7 million video views. More about video promotion.
Offline Promotion – Using magazines, publications or leaflets to encourage customers to your website.
I am also willing to help you improve the performance of your existing website & Internet presence. This means I can set up systems, provide advice & tasks for you to action, all with the aim of getting your website more relevant visitors.
SEO – Search Engine Optimisation
Website Promotion | SEO |What Is SEO ?
Search Engine Optimisation | SERP | Search Engine Results Page
SEO or “Search Engine Optimisation” is the process of making a web page or website more visible in search engines for specific search terms.
SEO Example 1 – Andy Field Is a Gloucester based magician so would be sensible if potential customers searching for magician in Gloucester found andyfield.info towards the top of the search results. “”Search On Google””
SEO Example 2 – I also as my main job fix computers in Gloucester so some one searching on Google for computer repairs Gloucester would be someone who I would like to visit my website.
This does not happen immediately but over time and with a little effort your website has the potential to come towards the top of the organic (Not Paid) search results.
What Is The Most Important Consideration of SEO?
Thoroughly researching what people actually search for to find your product, you would be surprised how different people search on search engines. We can work together to build a list of searches people are more likely to search for I also ask advice from a group of people of different ages, sexes and backgrounds for their input on your product or service. This then covers all bases.
The text of your website including titles and photo titles should incorporate words and phrases from our list. Your site text should always be interesting, legible and accurate in the first place but try and place these words if possible.
Once your site is in place people will want to link to your website if they like it, the use of these keywords in the link is also very important. I have a list of sites that you can post your website on, these also include the most popular social networking sites. The more your site is talked about on the Internet the better.
How Do You Measure Success Of My Websites SEO ?
When setting up your website or taking over one of the first things I do is to install “Google Analytics” this tool allows me and you to monitor all information about visitors to your website. Google Analytics allows you to study the following.
- Which websites referred visitors to your site?
- What was typed into search engines for people to find your website?
- How many visitors you get in a day, week or month?
- What devices are people using when viewing your website?
This list does not show you the full capability of Google Analytics which will probably amaze you. For a full detailed feature list “See Here”
Website Hosting Affects Search Engine Performance
If you target UK based customers it is best to have a UK IP address for your website host.
I recommend “Krystal Hosting” a good, reliable and fairly priced host.
