Do I really need a new website?


They say never judge a book by its cover, but that's exactly what customers do when they land on your website. For a business to survive online, it needs a website that really shows off your brand and conforms to 'Google rules' to stay visible - and most importantly, a business needs a website it can be proud of. Here are ten reasons why you need to invest in a new website:


1. Your website is not mobile friendly or easy to navigate on the move.

2. The content is not up to date and doesn't give a true representation of your brand.

3. Users can't easily find what they are looking for.

4. You can't be found in search engine results.

5. You have no varied content on your site (ie. Images, blogs, video etc.)

6. You don't get much business from your current site... and it's just sat there.

7. Your site still has Flash animations or auto-playing music on the home page.

8. Your website is mostly about you and not your customer.

9. It takes ages to load.

10. You feel obliged to like your current site simply because you spent a lot of money on it... when really you hate it!

How much does a new website cost?


A new website should be seen as an investment and unfortunately there is no one-size-fits-all approach. However, at The Soapy Group we understand that small businesses can be a little squeezed on budget. We take pride in creating beautiful, simplistic websites that work best for you as a marketing tool - at an affordable price.


It's always wise to keep in mind that a website is a long term investment that will need monthly TLC, and most importantly, Search Engine Optimisation to ensure your return on investment. Contact us to discuss your needs and we can arrange a quote based on exactly what you want from your new website.



Why should The Soapy Group design my new website?


Although we are a little bit geeky - we are marketeers and designers first and foremost. We will create a beautiful bespoke website that will tick all the right boxes and make you proud to show it off. We will never overwhelm you with technical jargon or ply you with hidden costs. We want to be as proud of the website much as you are (after all, our design reputation is on the line too!) which is why we take a lot of care in the design process. Your new website will be optimised for Google search results and will hit the ground running.


Above all, we are a friendly, local marketing and web design company in York. We put as much effort in to building relationships with our clients as we do the design. We are always at the end of the phone and strive to make quick updates to your site as and when you need them.
