It is unfortunate but the web has suffered a bad press over the last few years. What with many of the new dot.com businesses losing fortunes, credit card fraud, pornography and numerous Internet scams, getting online can be a daunting and difficult prospect for the Internet newcomers.
The first experience of many businesses with the Internet is often a bad one. Common complaints include the web site being difficult to maintain and an apparent lack of interest from potential customers. As a result, instead of identifying and correcting the problems, many businesses lose interest and hence lose a valuable asset. Many of these problems can be avoided by good web design practices.
For the Internet novice, obtaining a professional Internet presence can be a complex, difficult and often costly process. Experienced Internet users are fully aware of the constant bombardment of spam emails advertising cheap web hosting, domain names, search engine submission packages etc.
Making the correct decisions in the initial stages of design as regards to web hosting and type of website etc is vital. We have seen a number of clients who, either through being badly advised or attempting to save money, have to have a total redesign of their websites after only a few months when they have realised that their site is too difficult to maintain, does not have the necessary features etc. Having to change web hosting companies can, in some cases, be extremely problematic as it can mean losing search engine rankings, having to send requests to all reciprocal link sites etc. Ellipse can help guide you through this potential minefield and give independent advice saving you wasted money and resources.
If you already have a web site we can review this for you and outline potential problems, features that may inhibit usability and make suggestions for improvement and development.
