Building Your Own Website Can Be A Mistake

By Branding, Ecommerce Web Design, Search Engine Optimisation, SEO, The Web Surgery, Web Design, Web Design UK, Website Design Business

wed design londonThe Biggest Mistakes of DIY Websites

Opting to build your own website is something many new business owners try out and most soon decide it isn’t worth the hassle and opt to use a designer instead. A DIY website can save your business a little money but in the long run it won’t be up to the task of promoting your business and getting you the ROI you need to succeed. There are many big mistakes that come with trying to wing it and build your own website and here are some of the most common and most damaging ones.

Not Understanding your Business Needs

You may be convinced what you need is a simple landing page so people know who you are and what you do. We regularly hear the phrase ‘I just need a simple website’ and this is never usually the case. What our customers want is an effective website, one which gets the results they’re looking for and one which challenges and exceeds their competitors. We’ve said it before but your website can be the most powerful tool you have for promoting your business so it needs to be effective in bringing in business and not just a simple template design which you don’t know how to use.

Not Understanding your Audience

It is very easy to get wrapped up in web design if it isn’t your job. Changing colours, sizes and repositioning images can be quite overwhelming and you may spend hours fiddling with colours and sizing to your personal preferences rather than thinking about what your audience needs. Does your website match the ideals and opinions of your target audience? Your website is not part of you, it’s a reflection of your business and should be tailored to suit your business customers. You may love the colour purple but if it doesn’t fit with your brand then you need to avoid it. Many small business owners have template sites setup which perfectly match their personal tastes but don’t actually consider the preferences of their audience. A professional web designer works to construct a website that you are more than happy with but also suits your industry and your audience.

Not Understanding what Google is looking for

Many small and new business owners are shocked to find their website isn’t even close to the first page on Google. There’s a misconception that building a website and leaving it there is enough to please Google and other search engines. This is simply not the case and as we know search engine optimisation is an absolute must to help push your business into the consciousness of Google and other search engines. Optimising your website involves certain elements of design as well as content and building a website yourself, with no knowledge of this, often means that you end up with a site that simply cannot and will not be found by Google. A professional designer will ensure your design is SEO ready and may also be able to advise on how to continue your strategy and implement it regularly to ensure your search engine results page improves.

A DIY design may seem like a cost-effective first step to get your business online but it won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. A professional designer is an investment in your business you won’t regret.

By Branding, Graphic Design, Marketing, Search Engine Optimisation, SEO, The Web Surgery, Web Design, Web Design UK

Olderpreneur Business Startup Pack

The Web Surgery have designed an Olderpreneur Business Startup Pack to help older people wanting to start up a new business.

Through research we found that the fastest growing age groups of business owners is in the 65+ age bracket. Barclays bank found a 140% increase in businesses opening in this age bracket between 2006 and 2017 compared to just 23% for those aged between 25 and 34. The increase in “olderpreneurs” means that there is a growing market for support for entrepreneurs who have a great range of life experiences, work backgrounds and knowledge.

The Office of National Statistics found there were over 1.8 million self-employed people aged over 50 in 2015 and this figure is only set to increase.

Consultant Website Designers

By Branding, Graphic Design, Medical Web Design, Medical Website Design, Photography, Search Engine Optimisation, SEO, Web Design, Web Design UK

Are you a Consultant looking for Website Designers?

Medical consultants and similar professionals may carry out 90% of their work person-to-person but this doesn’t mean they aren’t being looked for online.

Whether you’re an NHS professional, working private practice or a mixture of both, having control of your own online presence is a must in the modern age. Your own medical consultant website is the best place to start. It is an opportunity to share all the information about your work and your clinics. If you offer your services at a range of different clinics and medical centres it can be particularly useful to have all the information in one place.

Medical Consultant Website Design at The Web Surgery

The Web Surgery is a professional website design company.

We work with professionals in many sectors including a large number of medical professionals and medical consultants. We have the experience to ensure your medical consultant website design is professional, fitting of your work and services and exactly what your potential patients and existing patients are looking for. We can provide guidance and advice on the right design features for your site as well as bringing it all together.

Medical Consultant Website Design

Your medical consultant’s website needs to reflect your experience, knowledge and services.

Key to the design will be good navigation and the opportunity to help your patients and potential patients easily access your latest information and find your clinics.

A good medical consultant website design will make it easy to find out anything you want to share. You will probably choose to have a full biography present, as most people searching for your name will expect to find out a little bit about your work history and career. You may also choose to publish links to any research papers and publications you have contributed to.

This information can be easily incorporated into your website but kept separate from the general information listing your clinics and services, making it easy for the visitors to find exactly what they’re looking for.

Now That You're Gone - 26 October 2017

The Urban State New Single Release – 27th October 2017

By Marketing, PR, SEO

Infectiously catchy pop collective, The Urban State, are ready to fill the dance floor once again, with yet another great offering from their latest album, Introducing Angela.

“Now That You’re Gone” is the second release from the album, and is in keeping with their unique and eclectic sound. Pop beats marry perfectly with soaring vocals, giving the listener all of the feels, all of the time.

Listen On Spotify

Full of funky beats, blaring horns and soulful breaks, “Now That You’re Gone” may tell a woeful tale of missing someone, but the track is anything but down beat.

An ebullient out pouring of emotion, “Now That You’re Gone” has a retro feel, that delivers driving beats with enthusiastic vocals. No time to wallow in the sorrow of a missing lover, the track makes a break-up feel like the funkiest thing to have ever happened.

Our protagonist, in this case singer Angela, tells the tale of a lover filled with regret, sitting alone and crying, but as a listener you definitely won’t be feeling woeful. As the first track on their new album, “Now That You’re Gone” envelops you in the soul and sound of the collective, and promises good things to come.

Being a successful electronic pop and disco collective, The Urban State pulls together the very best of pop, funk, soul and disco to continually produce, toe-tapping upbeat numbers that will have you singing along in no time.

From the opening beats, down to the jaunty vocals, “Now That You’re Gone” uses the awesome power of electro-pop to punctuate existential woes. Join The Urban State on a journey through the tumult of human emotions, using bright beats, quick tempos, and lyrical vulnerability to make even the darkest days seem like the perfect time to strut your funkiest stuff.

Buy on iTunes

Now That You’re Gone is released on 27th October 2017 and is available to download on iTunes – Listen Here.
