If you run a business in Torbay, the chances are you will need a website built at some point. Having a website is like having your own property where you sell your services. Although having a Facebook page is something that most businesses have, that page will never be your actual property.

Add this to the fact that not everybody uses Facebook, and that around 75% (different for different industries) use Google to find a service, and it’s no surprise that your business needs a website to be able to find new customers.

Beautiful, mobile-friendly website design in Torbay

Nowadays, just having a basic website built is not enough to pick up new customers. The chances are that there are other businesses with their own website who are competing with you.

This is why it’s important to have a website that looks better than the competition.

As well as looking better, it’s also important to make sure your website is easy to use. No point having a beautiful website if people can’t use it.

Did you know that over half of all internet usage is now on a mobile device? You need to make sure your website looks good on all devices.

Torquay Online take all of these aspects into account when we build a website. And more…

Search Engine Friendly Websites

Before we build a website for you, it’s important for you to understand how “getting up on Google” works.

When we build websites, we make them search engine friendly. This means that we do all we can to make sure the website is technically sound and able to rank for your desired keywords. (If you’re a plasterer, your main key word would be “Torbay plasterer”.

What this doesn’t mean is that it will start ranking at the top of Google straight away (unless your industry isn’t competitive).

Getting your website to the top of Google is a process that takes time, so don’t expect a new website to rank high as soon as it’s built.

We do offer SEO (search engine optimisation) services on a monthly basis once your website is built, but it’s not the same service.

Affordable Websites in Torbay

One of the main reasons why businesses struggle to get online are the prices involved.

Building a website can be a difficult, lengthy process, which can be expensive.

Not to mention, the majority of web design companies have to pay property costs, staff wages and all other things associated with running a business.

This is something that Torquay Online doesn’t have to do. We work remotely, so we are able to keep our operating costs down, which is something that we pass on to you.

All websites are different, so we can’t give an exact price until we discuss things properly, but one-page websites start at £150 and basic business websites (with all the things potential customers need to see) start at £300.

Extra Costs

To get your website built, you will only have to pay Torquay Online the price of building it, but there are a couple of extra costs that you must know about.

One of them is the price of setting up your domain name. A domain name is what it says when you type in www… at the top of the page (Torquayonline.com is our domain name). It’s roughly £10 a year for a .co.uk/.com domain name.

Then there is something called hosting. You need hosting because this is where your website is built on. You can set up hosting from around £5 per month.

So on top of your payment to us, you have to pay around £70 per year to keep your website up and running.

All websites come with a free listing on Torquay Online

If you choose us to build your website for you, you get the added benefit of also getting a free listing on the Torquay Online business directory. This means people will find your business when they search our site, and we will link this to all your business details.

We will also recommend your services to local people on top of this.
