Different emails for different purposes

Posted on October 23, 2016 at 12:07 pm

Having one single email address is fine if you have a basic blog or brochure website, but if you’re running an ecommerce website then you may need to have a few for different purposes. You might want an email for general questions and another for FAQs, possibly one more for sales orders, another for technical help and perhaps a dedicated address for accounts information. Having separate emails for different purposes doesn’t just make your business look more professional from the outside looking in, it keeps your mail organised and it means as your business grows, certain individuals will be responsible for those email addresses. Emails are such a simple add on in many hosting plans but they shouldn’t go unnoticed. Make sure you decide on yours from the offset, you can then keep things nice and organised going forward.

Updating your website naturally

Posted on July 8, 2016 at 9:02 pm

It’s natural for websites to change and evolve over time, especially if your products and services change each year. You may find that you’re naturally improving your search engine rankings by doing basic tasks such as updating news items, updating products, removing old products, adding new services and creating new pages. Google likes websites that incorporate fresh, engaging content and its algorithm is designed to reward these websites. Make sure you’re not slacking when it comes to updating your websites with new product information, it may just be more important than you think. Simple updates will certainly go a long way and they can assist an SEO campaign, so if your business is slacking at the moment and there’s a lot of outdated content on your website at the moment, get it updated now. You won’t regret it in the long run.

Sharing content from your website on social media

Posted on January 17, 2016 at 12:00 am

It makes sense to use the material you already have, rather than constantly thinking up new content for different platforms. Your fans or followers on Facebook or Twitter may not have seen all of the information on your website, and you should never presume they have.

Some say sharing content published on your site is lazy, but it’s only on your website because it serves a purpose, and we’ve found that it can actually send more people to your site, and create more awareness around your brand.

The more your customers understand you, the more likely they are to make a purchase, and that goes for your social media followers too, so try sharing some content from your site with persuasive images or graphics, and you may see a big difference in enquiries, leads or conversions!

Posted on February 25, 2015 at 2:47 pm

Site building tools are an immensely useful tool for inexperienced web developers, in that they allow even laymen to build a website from scratch. With them, you can quickly install and, to a limited extent, customise a variety of web applications and CMS (content management systems).

Most hosting companies offer softaculous, which is the largest and most distributed site building tool around. This tool is available in most cpanels for webmasters to use and is very simple to use:

When in the cpanel page for your website, typically reached by typing in the domain name followed by “/cpanel”, go to the softaculous icon and you’ll be taken through to a page where you can decide upon a variety of content management systems, from wordpress (like this website), to joomla, drupal and more which focus upon ecommerce websites like Majento. From there you just need to configure a few basic fields to match what you want and decide upon a style you are satisfied with.
