Website Design for SMEs

All small and medium sized businesses will benefit from a website. It is vitally important that the objective of the website is agreed at the outset and this objective must involve supporting of the business’s marketing strategy. Many SMEs websites fail to do this and unfortunately, what ought to be a worthwhile investment transpires to be a lost opportunity.

E-commerce Websites

Autus develops e-commerce websites for a range of businesses. Many business support organisations promote e-com websites as essential for retail activities. Whilst an e-com website can be a very profitable asset, many fail. This is due to a lack of appreciation of the essential requirements for such a website to succeed. Prominent on that list is a well thought through Search Engine Optimisation package. For more details please see E-Commerce.

Search Engine Optimisation

Every Autus business website is launched with an appropriate SEO package. Businesses must appreciate that launching a website without the right SEO package is like filling a shop window and then leaving the shutters down. Please see Essential SEO.
