Can we view the design work in progress ?
Yes - during the site design and build process we will give you a specific URL where you will be able to view the development of your web pages.
Why do we need a website?
A website is like a 24 hour shop window where people can find information about your company products & services, contact you through email, order goods online. Not having an internet presence could mean that your customers may be taking their business elsewhere.
We are not looking for E-Commerce - can a brochure site still bring us new business ?
Websites are an indispensable aid in attracting new custom for growing businesses. They really can save you money in the long run. How much does it costs to send out marketing material to each interested customer or company? Instead, direct them to your website which will contain all the up-to-date information they need.
What do we put on the website?
When defining the content of your website it is necessary to ensure that the information is quality content relevant to your potential customers and site visitors. Abbenet offer a full copywriting service or we will advise and assist in determining the text emphasis of your site. Images, logos & graphics will mould and define the branding & presentation of the site. You can provide these to us in electronic format, or the graphics & photography can be done entirely at Abbenet. Website content will always be different for every company - contact us for more information and a free initial consultation.
We need to register our web site with the main search engines
Abbenet will register your web site by hand with the top search engines. However, this alone does not GUARANTEE that your site will be found. Find out more about website promotion and search engine registration.
How will potential customers find our website?
Your site is now finished and live but your customers need to know you are out there. Of course you can include your website address on company literature, business cards and brochures but web site promotion in the search engines is of vital importance to attracting new business & enhancing your company profile.
Will the search engines find our site ?
In order for a search engine to know your site is on the Internet (and for someone searching on that search engine to find you) your site details must be 'submitted' to that engine. Otherwise your site will effectively remain "Ex-directory"! The web pages also need to be optimised so that they are search engine friendly.
On completion of your website we
will submit your site MANUALLY to the all important top search
engines. We do not
use software to do this as our experience is that you achieve
much better results and higher and consistent search
engine rankings & placements by 'hand' submissions.
Can search engine optimisation & promotion really make a difference?
Our clients tell us on a daily basis what a dramatic influence a professional website, fully optimised and promoted through the search engines has had on their business. Find out more about website promotion & marketing.
Can a small business benefit from having a web site?
Without a doubt ! A web site, however big or small, with or without E-commerce, is a golden opportunity to profile your business and demonstrate products and services. No business is too small to benefit from the advantages of having an online brochure or selling goods and services online!
We are unhappy with our existing site, can you help?
If you already have a web site but are unhappy with its design / content / structure / search engine rankings, Abbenet will be able to help you. All aspects of your site can be reviewed and we will be happy to advise you and provide a quote based on your requirements.
Our existing site is not being found by the search engines. Can Abbenet help?
Abbenet specialise in all aspects of website promotion within the search engines. If your site is not achieving good rankings or listings then contact us and we will be happy to look at the code of your site and recommend an optimisation and submission strategy.
Our company is too busy to "look after" the website?
We can offer you a package of ongoing website management and maintenance with regular updates, traffic monitoring, search engine resubmission and full support. We are committed to our ongoing service to you.
Do you offer a photography service?
Yes. We offer a high quality photography service with either digital or SLR. All digital still images are taken on a 5 megapixel camera which gives high resolution and sharpness.
We already have a domain name but no web space?
If your domain name is not attached to any web space (or needs to be moved from an existing web host), this will require us to migrate the name(s) across to the web server.
What is web space?
A domain name without web space is a number plate without a car. A web hosting service provides a portion of web space which is electronically attached to your domain name in order that your site can be placed on the internet.
Can we find out who is looking at the site?
A tracking facility can be installed on your site and you will be able to log into your own account to view your daily statistics. If you would like us to maintain your website for you, we can monitor your statistics on your behalf.
Can we update the site ourselves after its completed?
Abbenet can provide you with a content management solution suitable for your site and your business requirements.
We would like a FLASH web site ?
Abbenet are happy to provide FLASH animation and interaction. Please contact us for more details & a quotation.
Can we have promotional video clips on the site?
Yes. We provide a video service for website video clips. We also offer high quality video and DVD production. This can be used to promote your business as an audio visual presentation.
