Here’s what Cameron, a North Brisbane electrician had to say about working with us:

“I’m an electrician and the Brisbane Hosting team recently launched my new website. Straight away I’ve seen an increase in new leads and have received really positive feedback from new clients who were impressed with the layout and how easy it was to navigate. 

Not only did Brisbane Hosting manage the website development and hosting, but they also wrote all the copy. It was a really valuable exercise to sit down with the team and drill down into each of my services and points of difference so that my website accurately reflects how Armitage Electrical can help our customers. I would highly recommend these guys if you’re looking for a web developer Brisbane.” – Cameron A. 

Finding a reliable website developer Brisbane

We know it’s challenging finding reliable suppliers, let alone IT professionals who speak your language.

We have hundreds of happy clients that we manage website hosting for each year, and have completed thousands of web build projects across every industry imaginable.

And the best part is, we’re transparent with our costs. Our web build or website re-skin packages are very affordable. We cut straight to the chase and only recommend what you need.

Your new website needs to do more than just look good – it needs to be functional and Google friendly if you expect to generate leads from it.

What’s involved building a website? 

Our process:

  1. Request a quote – give us a call or drop us an online enquiry here.
  2. Deep dive workshop and copywriting – if required, we can help write Google friendly copy for your new website – or we can bring across existing copy/pages if available
  3. Web build – we’ll manage your new theme installation and website build from start to finish including creating your new homepage, service or product pages, and contact pages. You can supply all your copy and images – or we can organise this for you.
  4. Optional extras – we’ll also recommend which additional items your site might need. Some will be mandatory such as a SSL Certificate to make your site secure (Google made these compulsory in July 2018, find out more here), while others are optional but are designed to help you generate more leads
  5. Maintain your site with a care package – websites are not a set and forget, we strongly recommend all clients ensure their website is updated regularly (read our blog here) – there are some parts our clients like to do themselves, otherwise we can take care of it for (including full site back up and checking for hacker files).

Small Business Website Checklist – 5 Things Your Website Needs in 2019

To help set your business up for success, we’ve pulled together our small business website checklist featuring 5 important things your website should have in 2019.

You’ll find some new software features such as a Facebook Chat, others you may already be familiar with but perhaps didn’t implement in 2018.

Need help with any of the below? Contact our friendly team of web developers and marketing experts who can help get your website and digital presence optimised. Call us on 07 3899 2977 or email us here.

1. Install an SSL Certificate on your website.

We cannot stress enough how crucial this is.

A SSL Certificate encrypts data that passes between a user’s internet browser and your website server. It’s recommended for all websites, not just e-commerce sites as it helps protect personal data you collect on your website, including contact forms.

Why do you need one? Google set a deadline of 1 July 2018 and since October 2018, any website that doesn’t have an SSL has been prominently displayed as ‘Not Secure’ by Google. Some browsers won’t even loads websites without SSLs, forcing the user to confirm they want to proceed to an ‘unsecure site’ which is a big deterrent for potential customers.

Google also indicated that not having an SSL Certificate would impact your organic rankings. Find out more here.

Haven’t got an SSL Certificate? You need one asap. Email us here. 

2. Ensure your website is mobile friendly.

With more and more customers searching via mobile devices rather than desktop, if you expect your website to convert leads – it needs to be mobile friendly with a responsive theme that’s easy to navigate no matter what device it is accessed from.

Why is this important?

Consumers now spend more than five hours a dayon their smartphones.

69% of smartphone users also say that they are more likely to buy from companies with mobile sites that easily address their questions or concerns.

 3. Blog regularly.

Want to improve your organic Google rankings? You need to be blogging regularly.

 To get the best ROI on your blogging efforts your posts does need to tick a few boxes such as optimal length and optimised set up. This will give you the best change of ranking well for your desired keyword or phrase.

Not sure what to blog about? We always recommend starting with client case studies – a great way to showcase positive reviews and demonstrate your expertise and work!

4. Consider installing Facebook Chat on your website homepage.

Make it easy for your customers to connect with you.

A common challenge we’re hearing from clients is that customers are becoming increasingly impatient and don’t want to wait 24 hours to receive a response from an online or email enquiry they’ve submitted.

Depending on your target audience, enabling FB Chat on your website homepage may be a great solution to make it super easy for potential clients to contact you.

It means that you’ll also get an immediate notification about the enquiry through Facebook messenger on your mobile devices.

You can also set up auto-responders which manage the potential customers’ expectations about how quickly you will respond.

5. Proactively requesting Google Reviews from clients.

Are you proactively reaching out to customers to ask for 5-star Google Reviews? You should be.

Having positive reviews not only helps with lead generation (helping drive word of mouth online), but it can help reduce the impact of getting a negative review.

People tend to publish a review when they have something to complain about – so get on the front foot and establish a good rating to begin with.

This will mean, that if you do happen to get a less than favourable review, it will have less impact on your rankings or positioning in the Map results in a Google search.

Why are reviews important?

93% of local consumers use reviews to determine if a local business is good or bad.
