Have you started building your own website, but now you’re feeling stuck? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Many people start the process with enthusiasm, but soon find themselves bogged down in technical details or design choices. Whether you’re using a website builder like Wix or Squarespace, or trying something more ambitious like WordPress, it can be frustrating when you feel your wheels are spinning, but you’re getting nowhere fast.
At Glendrian Creative, we have taken on quite a few unfinished website builds, giving our clients the chance to relax and get back to what they do best (we call that your genius work!).
Here are a few common issues that we can help with:
Maybe you’ve got the technical side of things sussed, but you’re struggling to choose the right color scheme, or you’re having trouble making your website look professional. If you’re not a designer, it can be challenging to create a visually appealing website. We know what colours go together, which ones will cause problems and what combinations will get your site penalised by Google (yes, that’s a thing!).
You might be stuck on how to add a contact form, set up an email list, or integrate social media into your site. We’ve got that stuff nailed and can put extra measures in place to reduce the chances of spammers using your forms to bombard you with unwanted junkmail.
Organising your products and writing content can be challenging and time-consuming, particularly if you are setting up a shop with a range of products. Working out how to showcase your product range or services can take quite a lot of head scratching (why do you think Adrian is bald!!). How many categories should you have? How do you design the menu to make it easy for people to find everything? We have a lot of experience breaking down complex information and presenting it in a way that is logical and intuitive to your website visitors.
Search engine optimization (SEO) can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not familiar with the technical jargon involved. SEO is an ongoing part of running a website so we set you up with the basics and show you how you can improve your chances of the site being found by search engines in the future.
Whatever your issue may be, we’re here to help. We’ve been called in many times to ‘rescue’ a stalled project and get it back on track and have clients who can testify to the benefits of getting us in to finish the job and provide training on how to manage the site once it’s launched. Depending on the platform, it is also possible for us to work with you in real time through live Zoom sessions to both finish the site and show you how it is done. You can save a recording of the zoom sessions to refer back to later.
We want to make your website building experience as stress-free and enjoyable as possible, so don’t give up on your website dream – contact us today and let us help you get back on track.
