Our sister business Broad Ribbon Designs will help you create an online presence. We specialise in building online businesses via blogging, publishing, and a technique called content marketing, which is essentially a way of engaging with potential clients through storytelling and the sharing of useful and relevant information. You can read more about this on our blog post here.
Broad Ribbon Designs predates Optimate Web Hosting by two years, having built its first site back in 2000. We are in fact the same people! We know hosting and web sites intimately from years of experience with both, and can advise the best approach for you without any hidden agenda. We really do have your interests at heart — as our testimonials show.
We’ve done this too long — for others as well as for ourselves — to know that it is futile beginning with a large-scale project. It will never get off the ground, it’s just too overwhelming, especially if you’re new to this. We suggest beginning with ‘just enough’ to go public with, then grow accordingly.
‘Just enough’ could be a very simple information-style site that at least gives you a web address (and email address) you can promote, and which starts the process of being indexed by search engines’. Or it could be an ecommerce store with a small number of products — again just to get you out there — which you can add to over time, perhaps during some quiet night-time hours!
Either way, we do recommend a blog be incorporated, as this is a great way of interaction with visitors and clients, as well as keeps your site ‘fresh’ in search engines’ eyes.
If you don’t wish to do this yourself, or the very thought terrifies you, we are more than happy to do all the ‘content marketing’ on your behalf.
This is because we have to rely on our hosting setup as much as you do. We absolutely have skin in this game. If we let you down, we let ourselves down, and that is not going to happen.
Should none of our web hosting plans quite suit your needs, we can certainly tailor one that will.
