Why do I need a website?

A website is more than just another advertising tool. Here are just a few functions it can perform:

  • Pre-sell your services to prospects
  • Establish a one-to-one connection with customers
  • Showcase products / services / special knowledge
  • Build brand image with your unique design
  • Expand customer service
  • Your site is open 24/7
  • Prettier than a yellow pages ad
  • Economically extend printed materials
  • Distance is not a limitation
  • Today, people expect you to be online

I thought only large corporations had websites, can my small business benefit from having a website?

Absolutely. A site on the Internet can give your small business global exposure, making your business available to people all over the world, not just in your local business area.

Do I need a large site? Can it just be one or two pages and still be effective?

How large your site is depends on the type of business that you have and your personal preferences. In some instances, a single page "business card" type website might be just what you need. In other cases several pages might be a better solution. It all depends on you and your businesses needs. Your site can be as simple or as complex as you like.

How long will it take for my web site to be designed?

The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.

Will we need to have a meeting in connection with the website design?

In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs onto the Internet in a private place where only yourselves and us can view the content. We then liaise with you regularly to discuss the web designs in order that the website design and functionality is exactly as you wish.

Once my website design is completed -what aftersales service do you offer?

We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer web site maintenance so that your website need never get out of date

In what format should I supply words and photographs about my business for my new website?

It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form - for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.

Will my website design be" Search Engine" friendly?

All our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules etc.

I run a small/medium size business and want an online presence to promote my business in a professional manner to new customers and to provide a more professional image to existing customers. What do I need to achieve this?

You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and hosting facilities for your website. You also need the website to be uploaded onto your hosting facilities and promoted to the search engines.

If I choose a CMS System 0r Content Management System - can I be sure that my webpages are "Search Engine Friendly"?

Do I need a database on my website?

This will depend upon the amount of information you wish to be displayed on your website. If you have many products/services, then it may be advantageous to have a database incorporated into your website design. We will discuss this in detail with you and if a database is advised we will explain in detail exactly how this will work. We can tailor your website design to suit your specific requirements.

How do I update my website?

There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. The method you choose and the functionality we build into your website design is solely up to yourself although of course we will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs.

If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask Fondue to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependant upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present.

We can provide an on line content management system where you can either update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website. e.g. company news.

Alternatively we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire product ranges to the website in one action using spreadsheets etc. We can also add databases if you wish.

Am I tied into Fondue for any site maintenance or updates I wish to do once my website is designed?

No once your website is designed it belongs to you and you can commission anyone to update it for you - although of course we would like to think that you are happy with our services and will continue to use us for your website maintenance.

Will everyone see my web site the same?

Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their individual computer settings and toolbars. We design sites with that in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. Obviously as technology alters then eventually all websites may need reevaluation.
