In the world that we live in today it is a necessity that every business has a website! With numerous search engines and directory websites, everyone searches the Internet for a business in their local area whose services they are seeking. Without a website you will stay behind the times and will have poor results as a business!

As I said above having a website is a necessity in the world that we live in today! The main reason to have a website is to promote your business and the goods and/or services that you provide! Having a website is a form of advertising that is almost 100% guaranteed to work!

At SDP our website design services are affordable and unique! We use the latest technology to develop our website’s and choose a Content Management System (CMS) based on your computer ability and your website requirements. With a growing portfolio of 60+ website’s you can rest assure that your online presence is safe with us.

Now you are probably wondering if you can afford a custom designed website? The simple answer to this question is YES! As a small business ourselves we understand that the budget can be tight. This is why I work
hard to keep our prices cost effective so I hope I can assist you online and at the same time not break the bank!
“A website is essential to any business which is operating in today’s society”
You may already have a website, but is it actually working for you? Is it generating leads and turning them into sales? Are those sales high enough? Is your website mobile ready?

If you answered no to any of those questions then you need to contact us ASAP for a no obligation FREE quote.

It is essential that all website’s are mobile responsive (work on a mobile), as well as adapt to fit any sized screen on any device.

Gone are the days of using Flash to build sites, as well as just HTML – today website’s need to be built using HTML5 or an equivalent coding technique. Statistically, over 60% of Internet users are accessing your site on a mobile therefore it’s vital that they can see your site! A simple way to determine if you site is mobile responsive is, if you have to ‘pinch and zoom’ to read text on the phone then its not mobile responsive!

Alternatively you can test your sites responsiveness by using Google’s Mobile Friendly test at https://www.google.com.au/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

Our website design packages start at $500 + hosting & your domain name. You’re probably wondering why our prices start so low? This is because we have built so many sites that we know exactly what we are doing so we
can build a site in less than 24 hours if required (and yes that can happen!).

Please continue reading through this booklet, where you will find out more information about our services and how we can help YOU BUILD YOUR BUSINESS!

MORE DOMAIN NAME TIPS
WHY SHOULD I REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME?

Registering a domain name is your first step to your company’s online presence!

There are many reasons why companies register domain names.

Some companies are keen to register a name and build a web site straight away, others just to have a professional email address that represents them on the Internet.

Companies may also register a name and keep it for future use, or to protect Brands/Trademarks.

WHICH DOMAIN NAME SHOULD I REGISTER?

To gain the best advantage on the Internet you should consider registering your company name as well as any abbreviations.

Abbreviations are very important if you have a long business name.

A three letter Domain name like www.xyz.com.au is far easier to remember than a long domain name.

It helps when customers want to visit or revisit your site for you to have a short, easy to remember domain name.

I AM AN AUSTRALIAN BUSINESS OWNER. SHOULD I REGISTER A .COM.AU, .NET.AU OR .COM DOMAIN NAME?

A .com.au name is certainly the flagship of Australian domain names. It is well recognised by Australian consumers, who instantly identify that companies bearing the .com.au suffix are Australian Companies and have passed the eligibility to hold a com.au domain name.

Registering a .net.au domain name can also help with your marketing efforts. It can be an excellent choice if the .com.au or .com name you want is registered by another company.

The .com suffix is certainly one of the most recognised suffixes in the world. If your business wants to trade and compete on a world scale then a .com name will help brand you as an international organisation.

Many businesses choose to register all three (com.au, net.au and .com) to protect their trademark or to assist in their on-line and off-line marketing efforts.

If for example you own www.mywebsite.com and www.mywebsite.net.au but the main website you have is www.mywebsite.com.au, users could find your web site at all three of these addresses.


BELOW IS A LIST OF DOMAIN EXTENSIONS AND SOME EXPLANATIONS ABOUT HOW THEY ARE USED:

.COM.AU

AUSTRALIAN DOMAIN – ABN/ACN/Registered Business Number or Australian Trademark Number required.

Domain Name must be an exact match, acronym or abbreviation of the name of the registrant’s company or trading name, organization or association name or trademark, OR, be closely and substantially connected to the registrant.

.COM

GLOBAL DOMAIN – This is an open domain space, there are no requirements to own one.

.NET.AU

AUSTRALIAN DOMAIN – ABN/ACN/Registered Business Number or Australian Trademark Number required.

Domain Name must be an exact match, acronym or abbreviation of the name of the registrant’s company or trading name, organization or association name or trademark, OR, be closely and substantially connected to the registrant.

.ORG.AU

AUSTRALIA (NON COMMERCIAL ORGANISATIONS) – Domain Names are for non-commercial organisations, including:

An incorporated association; political party registered with the Australian Electoral Commission; trade union or other organisation registered under the Workplace Relations Act 1996; a sporting or special interest club operating in Australia; or a charity operating in Australia.
Domain Name must be an exact match, acronym or abbreviation of the name of the registrant’s company or trading name, organization or association name or trademark, OR, be closely and substantially connected to the registrant.

There are many different sorts of domain names, but the one most commonly used by Australian businesses are .com.au (dot com, dot au)
domains.search

The best domains should be easy to spell, not be too long and if possible describe what your business does.

For example one of our clients designs and makes custom headwear called fascinators. her business is called Cailin Alinn, but her website name is www.UniqueFascinators.com.au

All of our domain names are registered through our partner company in Melbourne – domains now!

To check domain name availability, purchase or new a domain name go to www.domainsnow.com.au

A QUESTION ASKED ALL THE TIME…
I have been asked time and time again “How can I get better google results?” – well the simple answer is you need to implement various Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) techniques. We offer a wide range of SEO services, and we guarantee our results.

One of the most important things in getting good results is ensuring you have a good website! It is almost impossible to get good results if your website is not presentable! Ask yourself this – is my website good enough? Not sure? I classify the following as a presentable website…

A presentable website needs to have:

Simple navigation.
Easy to read content (unless your website is aimed towards a specific field, it is important to keep your content easy and simple!)
Good images that are High Definition – professional photography is definitely worth it for your business website.
Contact details easily accessible.
Yes, there are some exceptions to the above guide however for most small business websites the above would apply to you.

Now to the big question… how do I get better google results?

The answer to this is simple – CONTENT. CONTENT. CONTENT.

Having good website content is vital for good search results, if you make sure you have appropriate content with keywords you will get good results.

Links on your site to others and links to your site are both very important, google works using linkage from different sites on the internet, therefore if your site is linked to other sites and visa versa you have a verified site.

Speaking of verification when you develop your site, you need to submit your sitemap to google – you also want to make sure you submit your site to google’s webmaster tools. I can’t speak highly enough of webmaster tools; they are the essence of my SEO work.

As a professional SEO agency, we use a wide range of free and paid SEO tools; including website analysis.

Another important aspect on your site is having good meta data, so many site’s are missing out on good quality meta data… make sure you have good keywords and especially a fantastic meta description.

Now you are probably wondering what is meta data?

Meta data is the information in which search engines, like Google, read about your website when they are indexing it. Meta data consists of two things, one being keywords and the other being a description.

The meta keywords, are the keywords in which you are putting on your site for search engines to reference you to. For example a florist in cairns would be using keywords such as flower, roses, valentines, cairns.

The meta description is the 2 lines of text you see when you search something on Google. This is a great selling point as it gives you somewhere to quickly lure people onto your site.

Now, there is many many more aspects towards Search Engine Optimisation, however I don’t want to bore you with all the geeky technical things… If you’re looking for quality SEO then please contact us.
