Domain Management: A Strong Web & E-Mail Identity

Domain ManagementObtaining an appropriate and relevant domain (Internet address) for your business is very important.

Not only will it be used to identify your web site, but it will also act as the suffix for your email addresses (i.e. www.companyname.co.uk & info@companyname.co.uk).

A good domain name:

  • is easy for people to remember
  • reinforces your business brand
  • helps potential new customers to find you

Domain Management Services

Domain management requires a good deal of time and knowledge.

Our domain management services include:

  • Finder Services – We provide you with a list a of suitable available domains
  • Registration Services – We manage domain purchases, registrations and renewals
  • Configuration Services – We configure your domains for web and email usage

Web Hosting: Publishing & Running your Website

Web HostingThe term web hosting refers to a group of services that together enable you to make your website accessible via the World Wide Web.

Web hosts are companies with data centres that provide you with web servers that will run your website and ensure that it has secure, fast and reliable Internet connectivity.

In addition, they provide a range of tools to manage and run the site – e.g. some enable your website to use advanced visitor-friendly facilities, whilst others ensure that your site is reliable and always available.

Content Management

Keeping Site Content Fresh

The best way to keep visitors on your website (and to keep them coming back to it) is to provide them with fresh and relevant website content – i.e. text, graphics and multimedia.

Search Engine Optimisation: Getting To The Top

Search Engine OptimisationRanking highly in search engine results is the very best way in which to improve the volume and quality of traffic to your website.

Optimising a website for search engines is key to achieving a high ranking – this requires a knowledge of how search engines work and what people are searching for.

Search engine optimisation involves editing your site content and its (HTML) coding to increase its relevance for specific keywords and phrases.

Search Engine Optimisation Services

We have an excellent track record of achieving consistently high rankings for our customers. Unlike many of our competitors, our search engine optimisation services are included as standard.

  • Our sites are designed with search engines in mind
  • We provide feedback to customers on what searchers are looking for
  • We work closely and often with our customers to identify keywords and phrases to use
  • We compare your site with those of your competitors

Social Media Connectivity – Increasing Website Traffic

Social Media Connectivity

Word of mouth has always been a great way to extend knowledge of your business.

With today’s web and mobile-based social media technologies, the opportunities to further knowledge of your business are extraordinary.

Using social media technologies (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn etc.) to drive traffic to your website can be a highly effctive marketing strategy.

Kendall Internet can help you to select and use such technologies to increase the number of visitors to your website.

Call us on +44 (0)1344 423340 for further information.

Website Reporting: How Is My Website Performing?

Website ReportingKnowing how well your website is performing is vital if you want it to work as an effective tool to support and develop your business.

Who visits? What are the most/least popular pages? How do visitors find the site? What search engine keywords are visitors using?

These questions, and many more, need to be answered if you are to judge whether your website is working or not.

Website Reporting Services

All of our customers have on-line access to a vast range of website usage statistics, including:

  • Visitors – Who visits you website?
  • Traffic Sources – Where do visitors come from and why?
  • Content – Which are the most/least visited website pages?

You can also:

  • Create custom reports that present the information you want to see organised in the way you want to see it
  • Put all the information you need on a custom Dashboard that you can e-mail to others
  • Compare time periods and select date ranges without losing sight of long term trends
  • Schedule or send ad-hoc personalised report e-mails that contain exactly the information you want to share

Call us on +44 (0)1344 423340 for further information.

Brochure Websites: On-line Company Brochures

Brochure Website

The simplest form of business website, the brochure site, is a website that has very infrequently updated content.

Often they contain the same company information that is used in a company’s existing printed promotional materials – hence the name.

Brochure sites usually contain the following information:

  • A summary of your company and its products/services
  • How to contact/find your company and a contact form
  • Required legal statements and a site map etc.

All Website Services Included

Most web design companies do not offer brochure sites with any attached services – such as search engine optimisation or reporting.

Kendall Internet is different – we believe any website without such services will fail to deliver the intended benefits to your company. What is the point of having a website if you can’t find it via search engines or you have no idea if it is being visited?

Call us on +44 (0)1344 423340 for further information.

A Database Site

Database Website

A database site is a website where much of the content is stored in a web database.

Using a database enables large amounts of data to be stored, managed and displayed without overloading the visitor with information, or slowing down the display of the website pages.

Using a database website is a good choice:

  • For information normally found in a directory or catalogue
  • When you have many product or service categories
  • When you want to give your visitors the opportunity to compare products/services

Call us on +44 (0)1344 423340 for further information.

Community: Shared Views, Experience & Knowledge

Community Web Sites

Community sites bring together visitors with a common interest to share information.

As such they are websites where visitors are encouraged to interact with the site – for example by posting comments etc.

Community sites can span geographical boundaries – bringing readers worldwide together around a shared topic.

Examples of community web sites include:

  • Forums & Message Boards – online discussions in the form of posted messages
  • Community Blogs – posted articles submitted by and commented on by readers

Call us on +44 (0)1344 423340 for further information.

Blog: Shared Information and Interaction

Blogs

A blog is a discussion or informational web site that is also usually interactive.

It consists of “posts” (articles) that visitors can respond to and comment upon.

A blog can be a very useful business marketing tool, as it provides a highly cost-effective way for a company to engage directly with its markets/clients/customers.

Blogs are also great tools for clubs and societies to inform members and other interested parties of club and member news and activies.

Due to their structure, blogs usually have built-in search engine optimisation and are therefore more likely to rank highly in search engine results.

Call us on +44 (0)1344 423340 for further information.

Hybrid Websites – Mixing It All Up

Hybrid Websites
