Website Design FAQs

Templated websites will save you time and money.

Having one of our fantastically designed templated websites will mean you not only save money, but get your website up and running much quicker.

As the site as already been designed, this means we only need to add the content such as, images, logos, text, graphics, etc.

This will therefore reduce our time to complete, which will save you money and also get your new website ‘live’ much quicker.

The number of email accounts you will have depends on the website package taken.

  • Templated Full Website: 5 email accounts
  • Templated one page website: 1 email accounts
  • Custom website: 10 email accounts

 

We also offer and Extra called ‘Extra Email Accounts’ if you require more than your free allocation.  Additional email storage can also be purchased.

We also provide bespoke websites.

You don not have to take one of our templated designs and you can have your own bespoke website design.

Of course, as it is not a pre-designed template, the cost will be more than if you were to take a templated design, because we have to design and develop your site from scratch.

To talk to us about a Bespoke website package, please contact us and we will be glad to discuss your requirements in more detail.

There are endless choices of how your new site can look and our experienced design team will ensure you get a website that not only looks stunning, but has all the features you require to suit your business model and is fully optimised to Google.

Why must your website be mobile friendly?

Having a mobile friendly (or responsive) website is a necessity in today’s’ fast paced internet world.

There are many positive reasons that your site should be mobile friendly, but the most important is that your site visitors will expect it and be more likely to visit your site and stay on it.

As more and more people now use their mobile device to view websites (over 60% now browse via their mobile device over traditional devices such as PC’s and laptops), not having a mobile friendly site could be the difference between gaining a new customer or losing potential custom.

Also having a mobile friendly site will improve your ranking on Google, therefore giving your business a more prominent position on search engines and increasing your sites’ visibility, as Google will rank mobile friendly websites higher than non-mobile friendly websites.

We also call these sites ‘responsive’, because the site itself will adapt to suit the screen size it is being viewed on, for a much greater browsing experience for your site visitors.

Speedier websites and a faster browsing experience for your site visitors.

Dedicated hosting means that we use our own server to host your website on.

This allows us configure it to suit the needs of your website and the resources it will need.

This allows us to give much better support, faster opening web pages on your site and configure extras like spam filtering and higher levels of security, etc.

This is opposed to having a ‘shared’ server, which a lot of other web companies use as it is often cheaper.

The downside of having a shared serve, is that you will be sharing your website resources with lots of other websites from other web companies and will have no idea what resources (including bandwidth and disk space) they will need or are using.

For instance, one of the other websites may require lots of traffic and bandwidth at certain times of the day and this can significantly slow your site and web pages down or even mean your website goes down.

Most ‘shared’ servers, even those that claim to be unlimited, often have fair usage policies and limits on bandwidth and disk usage which could mean if your site exceeds either of these it could go down.

Our dedicated server is based in the UK, with 24/7 UK support, 99.99% uptime and constant performance monitoring to ensure your website is available to your customers with the minimal chance of disruption.

Google will start to rank websites with faster loading pages much higher.

Do you know where your current website is hosted or whether it is on a shared server or dedicated server?

Chances are you do not. Why would you? You trust your web company to sort all this and as long as your website is visible, then that is all that matters. Right?

Unfortunately this will soon not be the case, as Google will start to rank websites higher based on their page loading speeds.

This will mean it becomes more crucial to know how your current website is hosted.

By taking one of our website packages, you get a dedicated server as standard and therefore Google will not penalise you or your website.

We have previously used shared hosting as it is much cheaper, but our customers complained bitterly that their websites were slow to load and visitors were complaining how long it would take for web pages to open.

We no longer use shared hosting for any of our sites and our customers have seen increased their visitors and sales enquiries because of this.

Can you afford to have a slow loading website?

Changing your main franchises?

We understand that sometimes there may be a change in one or more of your main franchises.

If this is the case it could mean that your website colour schemes will need to be changed, along with home page images, logo changes and franchised page text.

This is not a problem for you or for us.  At Farmgear we understand that a change to a main franchise is often part of challenges your business is faced with.

Although these changes will be provided by us free of charge, you may decide that it would be a great opportunity for you to think about taking on a whole new design to freshen up your website to reflect this new challenge.

Your site visitors will see straight away that you have taken on a new franchise and that your business has embraced the change, but it’s still ‘business as usual’.

If you do decide to take a new website design, as an existing client, we will give you a 40% discount off the project price.

Mobile Apps FAQs

Better customer engagement:

  • mobile apps offer better personalisation options to the users
  • users can set up preferences
  • apps can track customer engagement
  • they can identify user locations for targeting geo-specific content
  • apps can use the features of a mobile, such as the camera, or GPS location, making the user experience better
  • the device’s features can shorten the time users need for performing tasks within the app
  • and can often boost conversions.
  • apps are able to offer basic content and functionality to users when offline
  • statistics show that people now spend significantly more time using a mobile app that visiting a mobile website

 

Brand recognition:

  • the increased use of mobile devices means that users will regularly see your mobile app on their device
  • just having the app’s icon in view works as a mini-advertisement for the business
  • additionally, the visible icon helps subconsciously influence a user’s perception of a business
  • although advertising can be ignored, it is found to still make an impression on the user’s mind
  • put your business well ahead of your competitors

 

Sending notifications to users

  • emails to customers can easily be ignored as part of ‘email overload’
  • in-App and push notifications allow you to message users instantly, and in a non-intrusive way
  • in-app notifications are those that a user will see when they are using the app
  • push notifications, are those that users can receive regardless of whether the app is open or not
  • chat function lets users communicate with you without their contact form entries going into your spam folder

Many companies feel the need to bombard their customers with emails, social media posts and more.

Too many, especially if they are uninteresting, communications can have an adverse effect on your customers’ loyalty.

By using push notifications properly and sparingly you can create the opposite effect.

For example:

  • only send sales pitches a user may genuinely be interested in
  • latest product launches based on a user’s interests
  • competitions a user may genuinely be interested in
  • flash sales
  • stock alerts
  • last minute availability of bookings
  • new/additional loyalty scheme features
  • VIP events
  • business interruption warnings
  • local road closures
  • telephone systems out of action
  • adverse weather conditions in your location
  • mobile devices tend to store app data locally
  • Websites need to use web servers
  • therefore, mobile apps retrieve data more quickly

Your mobile app comes with a full Contend Manager System (CMS).

This allows you, based on your package, to create and view:

  • push notifications
  • in-app banner adverts
  • SMS notifications
  • chat with users
  • geo targeting
  • customer coupons
  • in-app forms
  • directions to your location
  • other in-app content
  • statistics

There are three types of mobile app:

  • iOS native apps can be downloaded and installed from the Apple App Store
  • Android native apps can be downloaded and installed from the Google Play Store
  • Native apps require paid developer accounts in one or both of the above stores
  • Progressive Web App (PWAs) do not need to be put in the above app stores, but can be downloaded via a QR code on your own website, Facebook page, leaflet etc.
  • PWAs give you a faster and more engaging version of your website or eCommerce store
  • PWAs can do most things that native apps can do, such as operate offline, access your camera and microphone, if necessary, GPS, and more
  • All app types come with a CMS
  • Only native apps allow you to send push notifications
