Through our sister company Websites Your Way we offer a number of web services:
Deciding if your business needs a web presence is the easy question, the harder question is why?
Should it be a way of finding new customers or a way of providing information to already primed customers? Should a website be a shop, a showcase or an advertising hoarding? Of course a website can be all of these things, but what should be its focus?
Social media has replaced many functions business websites used to offer. News, information about new products, and communicating directly with customers are almost exclusively handled by services such as Facebook and Twitter for small businesses. Social media also offers a wide and diverse advertising reach and other services offer shops and sales portals for products and services. It could be argued that a small business can function completely without the need for a dedicated website, in fact many small businesses do.
So in this day and age why should you have a dedicated website at all?
The best way to think of it is as a focal point, recognition, authority and most importantly a fixed trusted location for your customers to learn about your products and services and where they can be presented as more than marketing sound bites.

“I liked the look of my existing website, but wanted a newer, more user-friendly one built in WordPress. Matthew paid close attention to my brief, and came up with a site which looked very much like the one I had, but with a more up-to-date feel, as well as being mobile-friendly and far easier to use. I was very pleased with the result, and I am now ensuring I keep my website current, which, frankly, I hadn’t been doing”. Jo Smyth Word Worker http://wordworker.co.uk/
