Fresh nibbles to tease your website palate
Dear Friends,

Websites you can update yourself


Updating your own website is something many people ask about.  Applegreen has started using the blogging platform WordPress, which has evolved in recent years into a content management system that enables the building of static websites for updating by non-specialists.  The training for users is minimal, making the system ideal for churches and small organisations.
 
There is slightly less design flexibility with WordPress compared with a hand-coded site— but the trade-offs are clear, including the freedom to update and the low pricing.  Applegreen’s prices start at £275 (excluding hosting and domain) for a design like www.handschurches.org.  A wider choice of appearance can be obtained by purchasing custom WordPress “themes”.

Marketing


If your business operates in a crowded market, you should remember that your website will only work for you if you work for it.  A website alone will not be enough to get you clients if you are a new entrant to your market.  What it does do is showcase your services and abilities and give prospective clients a chance to have a good look at what you do before getting in touch.
 
So you still need to advertise;, and you can also add social media, such as Facebook, Twitter or even a blog, to your marketing armoury.  Consider paying Google for “adwords” that enable your keywords to appear top of a list of searches.  Read more on our Tips-SEO page.  The more time and commitment  you put in, the more your website will pay off.

Smile, you're unique


If you run a small business you will know that personal service and attention to detail are everything.  At Applegreen Websites, we aim to match your attitude to your clients with our own individual attention and bespoke design.
