Applegreen's Website Services
What we can do
Applegreen has handled websites from design stage to completion, working closely with clients to produce the best results for them.
We have also taken on, for management purposes, websites designed by someone else and either adapted the code or rebuilt it as necessary.
Applegreen encourages the integration of other platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Wordpress blogs into websites. These are effective ways of attracting attention and driving traffic to your website. If the prospect of keeping up a regular blog daunts you, let Applegreen take the strain and help turn your ideas into clear blog posts with searchable titles.
Applegreen designs in code which cannot be updated by the client, but we do work with technologies that offer easy updating. For example Wordpress, the foremost blogging platform for professionals, now supports websites that can be updated easily by the user. Ask Applegreen about designing for Wordpress.
We offer basic SEO, agreeing keywords with the client and placing them in high-traffic locations on the website.
Applegreen can build simple databases to capture client contact information, for example, for future mailouts.
What we can't do
We do not offer complex databases, but can recommend other developers who do.
Some websites built by other developers using out-of-date technologies cannot be taken over and updated as they are. Applegreen may need to rebuild from scratch, respecting the original size and look, and we can assure you that the result will be every bit as good if not better.
Applegreen does not promise the earth, moon and stars on a platter when it comes to SEO. Seach Engine Optimisation is a complex and evolving field in which expert advice can be expensive. Some commentators say you should consult a SEO specialist before you approach the web designer. Applegreen says if you go down this road, decide in advance how much you want to spend. While larger companies may be able to pay several hundred pounds per month for detailed tracking of web traffic to their website, this may not be appropriate for smaller businesses or organisations.
