This month we want to put to bed the myth that you can build your own website or get one for free, and it will give you excellent online visibility. Here at it'seeze Ipswich, we have new and returning clients who have been tempted by 'free' website builders or 'special offers'. Therefore, we wanted to share the pitfalls and help you to understand why an it'seeze website really is a better option for your local business. 
Everyone wants to be at the top of Google. You can do this organically or by paying to be placed there. We benefit from the infrastructure of a national company, who are based in the UK. So when you sign up with us you are essentially renting a system that is tried and tested. All of our websites are optimised before they go live and are easy to maintain and edit going forward. When researching, please try to find a free provider who is ranking highly on Google, it certainly is a challenge. That is because it is a contest in the search rankings, think of it as a car race. The streamlined sports car with the right tyres and engine will win over the ordinary cars on the road. There are many elements to winning the race, but unless you have the correct specification in the first place you are unlikely to triumph. 
 
We spend so much time understanding our clients' brief and working with them to get their website ready to go live. The process is bespoke, because we always meet potential clients face to face and listen to their needs. The beauty of being local is that clients can come in to the office and finalise their websites, if they prefer to do so face to face. it'seeze Colchester & Ipswich have been operating for 10 years, so we understand how to service local businesses. You can check out our 5 star Trustpilot reviews here. 
 
Features are really important on a website as they can make or break the visitor experience. Self build websites are designed to make your life easier but not that of the web user. Websites need to be mobile friendly, as over 50% of visitors normally search on their phone. They also shine if the images are high quality, and they flourish organically when updated regularly with unique content such as a blog. An SSL security certifciate comes as standard with all of our websites, which is significant as again many users will exit the website if it is not secure. 
 
Most of us would not normally build our own extension. Embarking on a new website project is the same. Our experience and local expertise backed up with national infrastructure make us the smart choice. If you would like to book a free consultation, please call us today on 01473 845 123.
