Why you need a website
In a recent survey it was revealed that 46% of small to medium size businesses in the UK do not have a web presence. The main reason given was that they thought it was too complicated to sort everything out. However, over 80% of commercial companies maintain that their website is responsible for their increased business. Many of our clients say that their own business would be dead in the water without a website.

Web Magik's business has been built on customer satisfaction. We wholeheartedly embrace the notion that "The Customer is King". That means that we're not happy unless you're happy.

 

One-Stop-Shop
Web Magik is your one-stop-shop. We can do it all for you. We purchase the domain name, arrange the web hosting, design and, if you need it, maintenance and updating of your website. It couldn't be easier.
 

Cost Efficient
Over the past nine years we have carried out a great deal of contract work for large, professional web-design companies, so we know how much they charge. Whenever we quote they add their slice ... and that slice is considerable. From experience our prices are some 40% to 60% lower ... and those are the prices we maintain for our own business clients.

How do we do it? Simples: we don't have the overheads of an opulent office suite and we're not greedy. So long as we make a living we're happy.

 

Web Design or Redesign
Whether you want your first website or your existing one is looking a little "behind the times" we will take you through the design phase step by step, incorporating any ideas you might have ... and we don't stop designing until you're happy with it. After that we build the whole site and populate it with your copy. Job done!

Website Management
You don't have the time to manage your own website? No problem. We can take the burden off your hands. If you only need occasional updates then we can manage that for you and bill you on an ad hoc basis. If you require a more regular amount of work (and many do) then you can retain us on a monthly basis. We'll keep a fair record of the work we do so that you can see that our charges are fair.

 

Email Addresses
No problem. Multiple email addresses? Again, no problem. You can have up to five email addresses per domain with whatever prefixes you like. We will furnish you with all the information to use your email with Outlook or Outlook Express or you can use our simple "web-mail" system. At last you can stop using those unprofessional looking hotmail and yahoo accounts to conduct your business.

Need more than five email addresses? That is easily arranged.
 

Hosting
Your website is your lifeline. For that reason we use only the best servers. Ultra-fast, efficient, green and ultra-reliable, we have experienced a total of just two hours down-time over the past 9 years - that's a staggering 99.997% up-time. The servers we use are the best available with back-up systems to their back-up systems, multiple backup power generators and built in redundancy to ensure that when someone accesses your site it's there.

You get what you pay for. I have lost count of the number of clients who came to us because their "cheap" web hosting was far too slow or unreliable. In today's world of the "Super Highway" the average surfer will only wait 20 seconds for a webpage to download before moving on. What would you really choose if the difference in price was just a few pounds? A Rolls Royce or a Trabant?

Domain names
If it's available we can buy it for you and we only charge you cost. You can have multiple domains all pointing to the same website
 

E-Commerce
If you need a web-shop then you've come to the right place. We've produces dozens of e-commerce sites over the years. We use the best, most up-to-date systems and payment by customers can be made in a variety of different ways. Just talk to us about your requirements.
 

Content Management Systems
Want the ability to update some parts of your website yourself? No problem. Just tell us what you need to change yourself and we can build a bespoke Content Management System (CMS) for you. CMS is web-based and works just like a word processor and needs no technical knowledge by the user. You'll be able to add and delete stuff with the click of your mouse.
 

Forums, Guest Books, Bulletin Boards, Blogs, etc.
We have the software and the know-how from ten years experience to produce whatever you need and seamlessly blend it in to your website, no sweat. Just tell us what you need and we will produce it.

 

 

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
It's no good having a website if no-one can find it. We have the tools and the know-how to elevate your domain through the Google ranks. SEO is a secret that many companies offer at additional cost. Web Magik build it in to every website we design at no extra cost.
