According to a recent study of 1800 consumers carried out by one of the leading website hosting companies (1&1) bad quality websites are actually damaging to business for small businesses. A staggering, 37% of customers, would immediately leave a website, and a further 9% would spend less. Over 33% of customers in the survey thought that the websites they were using were either unimpressive or tired and regularly found broken links due to typing...

We are very proud to announce the launch of our latest website, ImagesSupermarket.com. The website is a new stock photography website which allows photographers to sell their work and the general public to buy photos for public or private use.

We relocated from South Wales to the Devonshire town of Tiverton last year and since then we've been looking for ways to get involved in the local community. So when the opportunity arose to advertise in the Tiverton Town Football Club programme for the 2011-12 season, we jumped at the chance. So if you're at one of their games this year, look out for our advertisement in the programme!...

Our latest website launch was not for just one church, but for nine. The Exe Valley Mission Community, or the Exe Valley Churches as they are probably more often referred to, are a group of nine Anglican parishes in the Exe Valley, near Tiverton, Devon. Led by their new Rector, Rev'd Steve Goodbody, the decision to set up a new website has been mainly to improve communication between the parishes and the communities which they serve. Their...

Facebook and other social networking websites, like Twitter, have taken the world by storm - even making governments have to re-evaluate how privacy laws operate in some cases. But what can sites like Twitter or Facebook actually do for you and your website? and is it worth putting time and effort into using them? We've recently tried to answer that question on our Frequently Asked Questions section - along with other hot topics of conversation...

Teaching 4 wales are a teaching recruitment company based in Newport, South Wales. We provided them with a new site back in 2006 and this Autumn we set about revamping it. The new site uses Tim Burton's Coraline as a basis for the rather gothic characters that decorate the site, which make the site unusual and yet still inviting and friendly. The site uses our home made content management system. In this case it has been customised to include a...

The internet is a content-driven medium - what that means is that people go online looking for information. If that information is poorly written, or isn’t easily understood, then people won’t stay on your site. It’s as simple as that. The bad news is that there are far too many websites out there which people find confusing and difficult-to-use. The good news is your website doesn’t have to be one of them. Read more here...

Let's face it, websites are quite expensive to make and most charities have better uses for their donations than creating a new website. Having said that though, a new website may become a good way of raising their profile, attracting more supporters, reaching more people or increase donations. If you run a business, you might want to consider sponsoring a site. A good site doesn't have to cost as much as you might think and your endorsement...
