30/09/2016 Should you put your price or price range on your website? 

It’s a question I often get asked when I speak to perspective clients and it’s always a difficult one to answer. Of course, there are pros and cons depending on your industry, service, products and price point. 
Our website www.itseeze-colchester.co.uk does display our packages and pricing structure and many people tell us that it was the main reason they called. Our prices and packages are clear and easy to understand so people feel they know what they are getting before they make contact. 
That’s not to say this works for everyone! Promoting the prices for some services or products is just not possible without a consultation first - especially if you cannot bundle your products or services into a package without establishing the needs of your prospective client first. Having said this, I still think it’s important to give an indication of price or a range of expected costs as early in the process as possible because it’s one of the biggest questions we need to answer. 
Trust: Customers may be put off by companies who are not forthcoming with their fees and costs. They simply won’t make contact because they will assume that the cost is too high or too low for them. You'll never know just how many potential clients you've lost because they never contacted you because the 'assumed' what your costs would be. 
Price range: Some customers like to understand a ballpark price range before they make contact to avoid wasting their time and effort later. 
Clear pricing: Today’s consumer expects clear pricing. Just take a look at your own buying habit - if there isn't a clear pricing structure or at least a guide price then would you just move onto another website to find that information? 
Marketing to solve your clients problems: Your company website is there to help establish your brand and reputation and your aim is to solve your clients problems at a reasonable / fair price. So you need to convince your visitors of your transparency and the fact you are trustworthy as quickly as possible so hiding your prices defeats that objective. 
Some business owners may not publish their prices for a range of reasons - the most common being fear of losing the prospect before they make contact and/or not wanting to give away important information to competitors. 
Although the 'hidden price approach' may have worked a few years ago, today’s consumers don’t like one of their main questions being left unanswered, as they are time short and hungry for information. 

22/09/2016 Check out our new roller banner...

29/07/2016 Lost in the web? 

As we all know the world wide web is evolving at lightning speed and over the last 7 years (since it'seeze first opened our doors in Colchester) there have been some massive changes.  
By far the most important (in my opinion) has been the move to browsing on tablets and mobile phones but another change we have noticed is people looking for specific services just want to get to the facts.  
So when we design websites in 2016 we need to make sure the user can not only navigate the website very easily (on any platform) but also get to the information they require quickly without having to click page after page or read through paragraph after paragraph of text. 
So take a look at your website, see how easy it is to navigate and look at it from a new clients point of view. Are you getting to the facts? Can you get to your main services quickly and is there a useful call to action at the end of the line? 
Of course it'seeze are happy to review your website for you for FREE just click here and we will get back to you with some useful suggestions. 

08/07/2016 Some new website designs from it'seeze Colchester

17/05/2016 Why is speed so important when it comes to your website? 

Almost half of all web users now expect a website to load within 2 seconds or less and most will abandon a site that does not load in 3 seconds. This means that if your website is running at a snails pace you are going to loose out on business. 
If you are selling on the web 79% of all on-line shoppers who have trouble with website performance say they won’t be returning to buy again and about 44% will tell a friend if they have a poor experience shopping on a specific website. 
So it’s worth having a quick look to see how your website performs on both mobile and desktops, luckily Google provide a little tool and you can try a website speed test here: 
You can also contact us if you would like a full website review by clicking here…

05/05/2016 It’s not as simple as “mobile friendly” it’s more “how mobile friendly” is your website? 

Before speaking to potential new clients we always review their existing website and the first thing we look at is how mobile friendly their website is across tablets and mobile telephones. 
With over 70% of searches now done on mobile platforms it’s really important that when people find your website it displays correctly on all screens. 
Looking at so many websites it’s clear that there are many different variations of “mobile friendly” and not all work so well… 
A few years ago the mobile problem was solved with two websites, one designed for the desktop screen and another sister website designed for mobile screens. This is all very good but the main issue is that you are running two websites so two lots of SEO and two websites to update. 
Other solutions appear to fit the website into the screen but then the website is very small making it unreadable forcing the user to zoom in and scroll across, so not really user friendly. 
Other examples we see are half mobile ready websites so the text is re-sized and fits the screen but images and logos either load incorrectly or don’t re-size making the website look broken on a small screen. 
If your aim it to encourage users to call you on the telephone or fill in a form it’s important that this is made as easy as possible on all screens. Forms should be finger friendly and telephone numbers should become one touch buttons. 
So if you think your website has been made mobile friendly it’s worth having another look or let us have a look for you by filling in this form…

23/03/2016 Ever wondered how to improve your Google Places page ranking? 

Google places or Google my Business is the list of local companies next to the map that appears in many searches. To the left is an example for "website design Colchester" 
So how can you improve your company listing in this section? Assuming you have claimed and verified your business page I would suggest you add a unique company description about 250 words (avoid key word cramming) and make sure it's not just copied and pasted from your website or another index - remember Google dislikes duplication! 
Make sure your address is correct and your business opening times are added. It's also important to add the main services you provide in the categories section. Google allows you to list up to 5 services, so make use of the space wisely. 
Google is also looking for address and phone number consistency across the web for your business so submitting your company to business directories will help Google establish you are a genuine company. If old addresses / details display in some directories then either update them yourself or contact the directory to arrange an update as they could have a negative effect on your listing. 
It goes without saying that you need to list your business address on your website 'contact us' page but I would also advise putting your address in the footer (bottom section of the page) of your website. Also embed a Google map onto your contact us page and display your phone number and opening times clearly. 
Once this is all done it's time to start requesting reviews, You need to ask clients to leaves reviews on your page. 
If Google sees your page contains reviews, it will list your page over a page that does not. 
If Google’s approach to search is providing the searcher with the most relevant up to date search result possible then regular reviews on your places page will help! 
Finally, I would suggest that you review and tweak your Google business page every couple of months. You should replace old images, tweak your company introduction and make sure all directories display the correct trading address. Simple stuff that shows Google you run an active company!

30/9/15 How to boost your Google Ranking - Part Two...

23/9/15 How’s your Broadband speed…? 
BT have made pledges this week to make the UK the “fastest broadband nation” after being criticised by competitors about the quality of UK broadband.  
A BBC article yesterday outlines some of BT’s plans which include aiming for a new universal minimum broadband speed of 5-10Mbps, plus 10 million premises to receive speeds of between 300-500Mbps by the end of 2020, with 1Gbps also provided. 
Even if your current speed isn't’t as good as you’d like, don’t worry! It’seeze websites are designed to load super fast. All images are re-sized to look great on any size screen and be web-friendly. Any video content is hosted from external sources rather than being embedded in your site and we use HTML5 to build our sites because it’s fast loading. Google loves a fast-loading site which improves your search engine ranking. 
So, what’s your broad band speed like? Try this test at Which? to find out. 
16/9/15 How to boost your Google ranking - Part One 
Despite what many would have you believe, there’s no magic way to get your website into a top ranking position on Google. But don’t despair, there’s plenty that you can do to boost your ranking and help your potential customers to find your website. Here's part one of our top tips… 
1. Regularly update and refresh your website content. Search engines love websites which change regularly and the ones with the most recent content are considered most relevant to web surfers. If you haven’t made any changes to your site for a while it will be slipping down the rankings. News items, images and testimonials are easy ways to keep your site looking fresh and showing Google and your customers that you’re relevant and busy. 
2. Are your customers searching for you on a mobile device? If you don’t have a mobile-friendly site this will affect your Google ranking on mobiles and tablets. A mobile friendly site is one that displays correctly on any sized screen. It will load faster, include the most relevant information and look better on a small screen than a conventional site. Since June 2015, all new itseeze websites are on our Responsive (mobile friendly) platform. If you’re an existing customer and want to find out more about upgrading to a responsive site, please get in touch on 01206 512093. 
3. The dark art of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). No doubt you’ve had calls from various companies promising you that they can work magic on your SEO to boost your Google rankings (we get those calls too!). Your itseeze website will have the basics set up for you but there’s loads you can do to improve the SEO yourself without needing to hire expensive consultants to do it for you. Have a look at this video which guides you through setting up Title Tags and Page Descriptions as well as Alt Tags for your images. Look out for more on SEO in part two... 
09/09/2015 Are you a compulsive mobile phone checker? 
We’re intrigued by this article in the Telegraph suggesting we Brits check our phones 27 times a day on average. Apparently some of us check our phones hundreds of times each day and the favourite place to do it is on public transport.  
A third of us will admit to checking our phones in a restaurant and worryingly, 20% of 18-24 year-olds say they check their phones when crossing the road! You can take a quiz to see if you’re a compulsive phone checker and if you check your phone more than is normal for your age!  
We did the quiz here at Itseeze Colchester, and apparently we check our phones more than average! The article, based on a report by Deloitte, reflects our own observations on how modern touchscreen smart phones have so quickly become an essential part of our lives, enabling us to do all kinds of tasks from our phones that we previously could only do from a laptop or PC, including shopping for products and services.  
All the more reason to consider a mobile-friendly responsive website for your business if you haven’t already! Check out the article and quiz here and if you’d like more information about responsive websites, click here and watch the video at the bottom of the page. 
02/09/2015 Google launch new logo. What do you think...? 
Google have responded to the increased use of mobile devices to surf the web, by changing their logo to a simple, uncluttered version that looks great on any sized screen. In their official blog, Google said that one key challenge when creating the new logo was refining what made Google "googley". We love it! What do you think...?

Google places is totally FREE so use it! 
As a small business selling services and products to local clients you need every help you can get to get seen. Google places has been around for a while but I still meet many companies who don’t even know what it is. Sign up and give Google as much information as you can about you and your business. Post pictures on Google places and revisit it every few months to make sure your profile is correct and up to date. 
Website Tip...Keep your website navigation really simple 
Most people are in a hurry and don’t want to work for the information they are looking for. As a rule men will click off in 3 seconds and women in 5 if they are not getting the information they want. You main category headings should be visible on every page, so the user can get back to your “home page” or over to your “contact us page” very easily. Also make sure all your information is within two – three clicks of your homepage. 
So what's your bounce rate? 
Your bounce rate is an instance where a visitor lands on your website and then goes no further, so exits without taking any other action. We all do it - land on a website and then for whatever reason click off, it could be loading speed, it could be site design, images, to much text, bad layout, the list is endless! First we need to monitor our websites bounce rate and you can use Google Analytics for this. Generally an acceptable website bounce rate is about 50-55%. However, if your website has a good ranking on search engines then you are likely to see a higher bounce rate because your site will also rank highly for less relevant terms.

Ever Tried Google Real-Time to monitor your website? 
As we all know Google Analytics is a great FREE tool designed to help website owners monitor and review their websites activity. There's a little tool within the Analytics package that's called Real-Time and it's well worth a look. Real-Time shows how many people are viewing your website at that time, the page is updated continuously and each page view is reported a few seconds after it occurs. It’s really clever and gives some interesting feedback on an easy use platform, Real Time also shows: 
The viewer’s geographic location 
The exact page they are viewing at that time 
The keywords and websites that referred them 
Conversions as they happen. 
It's also worth using Real Time when you are updating the social platforms as it will tell you how effective specific tweets or updates are that encourage people to click through to your website.

A brand new website for it'seeze Colchester

A new website and logo for TSC Projects 
TSC Projects initially approached it'seeze Colchester to create their company logo and corporate branding, we were then asked to translate the brand onto a corporate brochure website that the client could easily update themselves.
