The second question nearly everyone asks us (the first one being "what does it cost?") is "can you help our business?" Our truthful answer is, that we have no idea if we can - until we talk to you!
Your business is inexorably linked to your website, and we need to know what you want to achieve. To do that, we have to ask you questions.
We are also sure that, whilst you'd like reassurance that we are a solid firm that can do the job you hire us to do, you really don't want to wade through loads of guff about our business. You don't want a lecture about what we can do, or that we were formed in 1995. You want to know whether you can trust us to achieve your objectives for you! In addition, you don't just want to convey what your thoughts are, and what you know, you'd probably like to learn something new too, and for us to come up with some new ideas, options, and tips that strike a chord with you.
So, to begin with, every business wants their website to achieve key objectives. What are yours?
Ask yourself these kind of questions, and let us know! If you have a lot of goals, we'll then ask you to prioritise. What do you want to concentrate on?
We'll then come back to you with a short proposal (we realise our clients hate long proposals about as much as we hate writing them). We even tell you the bit that you really want to know (ie can we help you to achieve your goals) at the beginning, rather than building up to the big finale (if you ever get that far!). We'll give you a timeline to achieve your specific objectives, and run through the process are involved, including what IWM will be responsible for and what you'll need to do at your end.
In the main, our clients are not interested in "the website" itself, they are interested in what it can achieve. So in addition to "What are you looking to achieve", we also want to know things like:
We'll outline all the things we are going to do for you. We'll also put your mind at rest over any concerns you have about working with us (such as "what experience have we got in your market?"). We might be a good website business, but the only thing you want to know is can we help your business!
We'll give you some realistic choices to achieve your goals. In all likelihood one option will be the quick way (the most expensive) and the other - or others - will be slower (usually less expensive). What's it worth to you to achieve your objectives? You are not paying us for the physical work we do, you're paying us for the after effects of the work that we do, and what it generates for you. And remember the old saying, "if you think it's expensive hiring a professional, try hiring an amateur".
It's not about how your site looks, it's about what it does, the results it generates, and that means starting at the desired "end result" and working backwards.
We also think it's important that one of us takes a leap of faith, so we try and give you some real value without obligation even before you pay us a penny. At the very minimum, within a month or so your website should be generating more revenue and reducing your overheads.
We have a vested interest in your website being successful. If it is, you'll stay as a client and maybe introduce others too. Our set up service, initial training and ongoing support are all geared towards generating results. Ultimately, that's what we are judged on!
We normally provide initial training in bite sized chunks over the phone and by email, and ongoing advice, support and additional training as required.
Our cloud hosted website platform is reliable, robust and easy to use. Quite simply, it doesn't go wrong. And all platform maintenance, upgrades or new feature integration is handled centrally for you. This leaves us free to get as involved as you need us to be in helping you to use your website and email to their full potential.Our platforms and services page also provided a pretty straightforward explanation of why we use the platforms we do, and provide support in the way that we do.
We provide Top-Tier Cloud Hosting with Zero Hassles. The on screen Help Guide tells you everything you need to know about editing the content on your own site without the need for endless training or any technical skills. It's as simple as it looks.
Our standard web hosting costs £29 plus VAT per month (or £315 plus VAT pa) and includes EVERYTHING you'll ever need to run your business online, including unlimited pages, ongoing training and support by phone and email, research and consultancy time. However, we can even get more involved in managing your content and other services for you if you don't have the resources or time in-house. Our more hands-on management and support services start from £50 plus VAT pm or £500 plus VAT pa.
We are unique in that you don't pay us anything until we've set the website up and it's "live". There's no obligation if you don't proceed - and no minimum contract if you do.
The reason we operate in this way is because;
(a) We are confident in our ability to produce results and we only work with businesses that we think we can help - it's rather pointless trying to help one that is already doing everything perfectly!
(b) We simply focus on delivering results and enabling you to gain confidence in our methods. It's an approach that works for us - we now host and manage websites for over 400 organisations all over the world as a direct result of it. Once you've seen what we set up for you with all the key fundamentals in place, and seen how easy the platform is to use, we're very confident you'll commit to us too.
(c) If we help you to be successful, and you like our operating methods, you'll stay as clients and might even recommend others to us.
A website is like a pair of binoculars. Amazing if focused correctly, highly frustrating if not. It's not that you might be doing a lot wrong, but when the missing or broken components are added together, it means your current website (if you already have one) will never do more than it is currently doing. It is - nearly always - an easy fix, and will only involve some subtle changes to your overall approach to the internet. We'll help you through the entire process with initial set up and ongoing advice, training and overall support.
