Understanding your Website Investment

Understanding your Website Investment

When we get enquiries for a website build we are often asked – how much will a website cost?

I found this a question that cannot be answered. Why? We need more information.

What does the website do?

What are you online goals?

Then – even with this information it seems like everyone expects a website to cost $500.00 – I need to tell you, that good websites do not cost $500.00, they are much more expensive than that but you need to remember why you get a good website.

This video will help to describe how we understand the actual worth of a website so you, as a client, can work towards reaching real goals.

Check it out on youtube and we will follow up with some tips on setting Goals inside Google Analytics to start to calculate the value of your website and what value it brings back into your business.

Sitemaps

It doesn’t matter if you you’re planning a new website or just redesigning your current one, it is super important that are aware of how the end product will look and feel for your end-user. You want your site to be user friendly, super organised and looking great. Therefore, pre-planning is a very important step in the designing of your website.

Do you have an SSL on your website?

Do you have an SSL on your website?

This article has been replaced with a more up to date version here.

Having an SSL on your website is important.

SSL Certificates are used to establish a secure encrypted connection between a browser, the one on your computer and a server, a website you are visiting.

SSL connection protects sensitive data, such as credit card information or usernames and passwords, exchanged during each visit or session.

If your site has forms that ask for sensitive, personal information you should be using an SSL Certificate. Otherwise, that data is transmitted in clear text and anybody, such as a hacker, could intercept this transmission and collect, store or even sell this information.

Not having SSL on your site could mean that you are missing leads due to visitors not filling out forms on unsecured pages.

If you want to learn more about SSL please contact the team at M R K and we can assist you in understanding your requirements and make a recommendation.
