I have a new guide available for small business owners who are thinking of building or improving their website, “Top 10 tips: Building or improving your small business Website”

This guide is for small business owners who are thinking of building or improving their website.

The tips are written with the expectation that someone else will be doing the work for you. Thus, I do not go into any detail on “how” implement the tips, rather I focus on what to ask for.

The tips are below, with each explained in the full guide available here.

1. Understand the jargon.

3. Choose a mature website platform and theme

4. Choose a website host that is recommended by your platform provider

8. Optimise your content to be Search Engine Optimisation friendly

9. Enable your site for secure browsing

10. Have a backup and disaster recovery plan, and test it.
