Website Articles

Sometimes people ask us "What should I sell online?"

This used to take us by surprise because normally we'd expect to be commissioned for a website project after someone has thought of a business idea, not before. But it's happened often enough that we thought we should start giving a bit of advice in this area too.

On Tuesday 19th April 2016, OpenGlobal are holding a FREE seminar in Gloucester, Dominate the Search Engines - Simple SEO essentials every website owner needs to know.

This is a half day seminar held at Pure Offices, aimed at both website owners and those who are considering having a new website.

A key advantage for online shops is that you don't need to use costly Google AdWords to advertise on search engines. This video explains how you can advertise on the search engines more cost effectively, and how you can target people that are more likely to buy than with regular AdWords.

Some people call themselves web designers, others call themselves web developers. There is a very important difference, but to most lay people they're effectively the same thing.

The problem arises when you're commissioning a website and you've chosen the wrong one.

So what's the difference, and how do you choose?

Most web design companies offer a cheap hosting service once your website has been completed. But very few offer a website management and support service.

So what's the difference? And which should you choose?
