Christmas gave another wave of handheld smart devices to a fresh batch of consumers, all ready to surf the web quickly and easily on iPads, Amazon Fires and a whole host of quality tablets, making 2017 the year that having a mobile friendly website is a must!
Many websites are already mobile responsive but are not very user friendly, templates adjust accordingly but do not put your most important information in the most important places! Going through your own website on a smart device is essential so you can see for yourself what it is like for a user to find everything that you have to offer!
Not sure what we are talking about? Well TLC Web Design can help! We provide free consultations for those who are a little stuck and, where we can, we will meet you face to face to get a better understanding of you and your business, so we can provide you with the best help we can offer!
Put simply SEO is an on line marketing discipline that focuses on growing your website visibility in an organic way, with out having to pay PPC, Good SEO encompasses both the technical and creative elements required to improve your google rankings, drive traffic , and so increase awareness of your cornish company in search engines such as yahoo and google.
There are quite a few aspects to good SEO, from the text words on your page,to the way other websites link to you on the internet, very often well grounded SEO is simply the way that your pages are structured and laid out.
Why a website needs good SEO!?
Much of web traffic is driven by the biggest and most power full major commercial search engines, such as Bing – Goggle – and not forgetting Yahoo.. and although some social media and other types of traffic could and can generate some visits to your site, its the search engines that are the primary method of navigation for most internet users, this is so true whether your website provides content – products – information or simply anything else…
Do IT yourself SEO ?
Its Complex SEO, a complex ever changing world, however it can be achieved, to a certain extent, even small amounts of SEO work on your website can make all the difference..
However it will take time, its very time consuming! if you focus on learning small amounts first this will help, then let us here at TLC help and do the rest!!

Statistics from Hubspot’s 2012 Inbound Marketing Report show that 57% of companies who have a blog reported acquiring a customer from their blog. That was 4 years ago, online presence is growing and competition is more fierce than ever, without a blog, can you really afford to lose any custom?
It feeds into your SEO – Search engines such as Google love fresh content, sometimes it is difficult to add new sections to your website so putting extra content into a blog gives your website that SEO boost without diluting your content for your customers.
Build a relationship with customers – As well as social media, blogging allows you to connect with your visitors, this gives your customers another way of getting in touch with you and engaging with your work. This will not only establish your brand, but build trust.
Build Your Brand – Continuing on from the previous point, blogging will allow your customers to see that you are not just sitting still, but moving forward, with a vision and purpose. This is a side the customers often of not see but will help gain creditability across the board.
Get People Talking – Encourage people to share your work, the more your loyal customer base appreciates and shares what you do, the more that loyal customer base will grow, and they will help more people see and hear about you, it’s free advertising, so make sure you encourage those to get the word out.
