Why you need a website
In a recent survey it was revealed that 46% of small to medium size
businesses in the UK do not have a web presence. The main reason
given was that they thought it was too complicated to sort
everything out. However, over 80% of commercial companies
maintain that their website is responsible for their increased
business. Many of our clients say that their own business would be
dead in the water without a website.
Web Magik's business has been built
on customer satisfaction. We wholeheartedly embrace the notion that
"The Customer is King". That means that we're not happy unless
Web Magik is your one-stop-shop. We can do it all for you. We
purchase the domain name, arrange the web hosting, design and, if
you need it, maintenance and updating of your website. It couldn't be easier.
Over the past nine years we have carried out a great deal of
contract work for large, professional web-design companies, so we
know how much they charge. Whenever we quote they add their slice
... and that slice is considerable. From experience our prices are
some 40% to 60% lower ... and those are the prices we maintain for
our own business clients.
How do we do it? Simples: we don't
have the overheads of an opulent office suite and we're not greedy.
So long as we make a living we're happy.
Web Design or Redesign
Whether you want your first website or your existing one is looking
a little "behind the times" we will take you through the design
phase step by step, incorporating any ideas you might have ... and
we don't stop designing until you're happy with it. After that we
build the whole site and populate it with your copy. Job done!
You don't have the time to manage your own website? No problem. We
can take the burden off your hands. If you only need occasional
updates then we can manage that for you and bill you on an ad hoc
basis. If you require a more regular amount of work (and many do)
then you can retain us on a monthly basis. We'll keep a fair record
of the work we do so that you can see that our charges are fair.
No problem. Multiple email addresses? Again, no problem. You can
have up to five email addresses per domain with whatever prefixes
you like. We will furnish you with all the information to use your
email with Outlook or Outlook Express or you can use our simple
"web-mail" system. At last you can stop using those unprofessional
looking hotmail and yahoo accounts to conduct your business.
Need more than five email addresses?
That is easily arranged.
Your website is your lifeline. For that reason we use only the
best servers. Ultra-fast, efficient, green and ultra-reliable, we
have experienced a total of just two hours down-time over the past 9
years - that's a staggering 99.997% up-time. The servers we use are
the best available with back-up systems to their back-up systems,
multiple backup power generators and built in redundancy to ensure
that when someone accesses your site it's there.
You get what you pay for. I have lost
count of the number of clients who came to us because their "cheap"
web hosting was far too slow or unreliable. In today's world of the "Super
Highway" the average surfer will only wait 20 seconds for a webpage
to download before moving on. What would you really choose if
the difference in price was just a few pounds? A
Rolls Royce or a Trabant?
If it's available we can buy it for you and we only charge you cost.
You can have multiple domains all pointing to the same website
If you need a web-shop then you've come to the right place. We've
produces dozens of e-commerce sites over the years. We use the best,
most up-to-date systems and payment by customers can be made in a
variety of different ways. Just talk to us about your requirements.
Want the ability to update some parts of your website yourself? No
problem. Just tell us what you need to change yourself and we can
build a bespoke Content Management System (CMS) for you. CMS is
web-based and works just like a word processor and needs no
technical knowledge by the user. You'll be able to add and
delete stuff with the click of your mouse.
Guest Books, Bulletin Boards, Blogs, etc.
We have the software and the know-how from ten years experience to
produce whatever you need and seamlessly blend it in to your
website, no sweat. Just tell us what you need and we will produce
Search Engine Optimisation
It's no good having a website if no-one can find it. We have the
tools and the know-how to elevate your domain through the Google
ranks. SEO is a secret that many companies offer at additional cost.
