Below The Philosophy - and a great example of how to use video.

I invested £2000 in my first proper PC back in December 1995. I sensed that being able to take advantage of the Internet and the new developments in software would be critical for any successful business in the future.

Google had not been born. Downloads took forever, and it was much more expensive to get and remain connected to the World Wide Web.

Being involved in selling print I could see the larger companies switching their spend from ink on paper to a mixture of Internet expenditure and print: -

Direct Marketing

Print spawned direct mail - or direct marketing about 100 years ago, but it got its big boost in the late 80's and early 90's as the power of computers increased and the costs of data processing fell. It became possible to track the responses from inserts, direct mail, and advertising by coding them and then working out which adverts pulled best. From there it became possible to refine ones marketing.

The Internet is direct marketing on steroids

The Internet is really only an extension of the direct marketing ideas of the past speeded up and made more direct.

Most businesses are hardly even scratching the surface, and that is not surprising.

My first experience of using a computer at Bradford University Management Centre in Emm Lane was way back in the early 1980's. When typing, a daisy wheel struck the roll of paper in front. Some of the more advanced terminals had black and white screens and it was all very primitive, by today's standards.

Email had not been invented, nor the World Wide Web - the changes since the early 1990's have been extraordinary, but it is not too late to get on board.

It is not too late to get involved...

The true potential of the Internet is just beginning to be realised and for those companies willing to get involved quick progress can be made. Google was not the first search engine. Firms that are top of the search engine pile this month can be knocked off in the future.

Whilst my ideas and strategies will work for larger companies I find that the smaller company are quicker to embrace change, they are more open to try ideas and not stuck in a rut unable to make decisions because there is no one charged with that area of responsibility.

Today's Internet revolution has a long way to go and if you need a partner who can see the whole picture then I would be happy to help.

No theories - simply hands on help

Abstract theories are not for me, I like to get totally immersed in the subject and help develop the content, website structure and whole marketing view - a website in isolation on the Internet will not succeed.

If you are looking for an imaginative partner: -

  • Brimming with ideas
  • Plenty of experience
  • A real enthusiasm for getting the job done

- I would be delighted to hear from you. Please give me a call.

  • Printing (litho sheet fed, web, direct mail, digital)
  • Professional Services
  • Manufacturing
  • Retail consumer and B2B
  • Floristry
  • Hotels and B and B's

are just some of the areas tackled by the Website-Doctor

A website project needs a wide remit for success...

However it is our principals and strategy which have been developed over 20+ years, which are what really count, and they are applicable to any business.

A successful website is part of a thought through business plan and needs to go wider than just creating a few pages and posting them on to the internet. Some web pages sitting somewhere on a server accessible to whoever cares to view them on their own will almost certainly be insufficient and will lead to disappointment.

Sadly most people when thinking of a website take a very narrow view of the process - such an approach will almost certainly lead to failure.

The Website-Doctor's approach is flexible, but for real success your website needs to be part of a business plan.

  • What is your target market?
  • Where are they coming from?
  • What course of action do you want them to take?

What is your Unique Selling Point - USP?

Are the sort of questions which need tackling as a start plus of course a number of others which we will take your through when you sign-up.

Website expertise + 20 years business experience

A successful website needs to be a blend of: -

  • Text
  • Graphics
  • Structure
  • Business objectives
  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Copy

The Website-Doctor's approach is to do the bulk of the work for your to develop a site, which will strive to achieve all these aims, plus of course coming together on time and within budget.

A successful website is not published and forgotten - if you are interested in real success it will need to be kept under review.

Statistics on who is visiting the website etc. are needed and must be reviewed.

Free Stats

Updating copy, maybe adding new pages, keeping an eye on competitors are all tasks, which need carrying out, and of course the Website-Doctor can help with all these.
