Web Sites :

Q. " i know what a web site is... but why do i need one as i don't want to sell anything over the internet"

A. your web site is a profile of your business on the internet ' your customers can access your web site and take a look around learn about your services or products.

on your web site you can show visitors the quality of your work through galleries 'SLIDESHOWS OR VIDEO of your completed jobs or provide them with much more information about your services than possible through an expensive advert in a newspaper or yellow pages.

by using your web site to profile your business 'goods or services you can cut down on your advertising costs by simply putting your web site address ( known as URL or Domain name )at the bottom of your LOCAL SHOP NEWSPAPER advert or on your trading vehicle

most of your potential customers now have access to the internet and more and more of your customer will soon be asking "do you have a web site " you want to be able to answer "yes 2 and provide them with the address ....because your competitors probably can

Web Site URL ( address or domain name )

A. if you run your business from home or from business premises your business has an address (example : 121 the high street ) your web site is the same. a URL is your business address on the internet . we purchase a domain name for you ( example www.mybusinessname.co.uk ) then we do a bit of internet magic ...and then you tell your customers your business address on the internet and hey presto they type it in www.yourbusinessname.co.uk............ and they are on your web site. looking at your business
