Creating a Jumbled Site

Trying to pick the right information from a jumbled website is overly strenuous.

Don’t forget your own marketing

Posted on February 24, 2015 at 12:01 pm

Being a website programmer can be a very stressful job at times. Often you have tight deadlines looming and very demanding clients and just when you think you have finished the site something stops working. With all these challenges it is very easy to find all your time taken up with working on client’s websites and forgetting to look after your own.
Making sure that your website and online marketing is kept up to date is not only important in terms of improving or maintaining your search engine rankings but also from a portfolio point of view. If a potential client lands on your website, they will want to see examples of previous work you may have done and information about yourself or company. This information needs to be as up to date and as relevant as possible. If it looks like you have not had a new project in the last 12 months they may go elsewhere assuming that you are no longer trading.

Testing a website before setting it live

Posted on January 16, 2015 at 10:53 pm

Any good website programmer should thoroughly test the website they have built before passing it back over to the client. Although this is the correct procedure, unfortunate this does not always happen or it does but the programmer may have missed something (often they are a little too close to the project). If you are the client having a website created then I would strongly urge you to test the site yourself and if possible also have a few other people test it that maybe have not seen it before.

Setting a website live that has problems, doesn’t work properly or broken links can be detrimental to a new business and not only lose you instant custom but future business. If you do come across any issues note them down. Once you have a complete list, then pass them on to the programmer to fix. Ideally you want to try and give them all the issues in one go as it will be quicker for them to fix them all in one go.
