A professional website is a valuable tool.

Depending on what you do and what your needs are you might be thinking right now "well, I don't really need that much, a template website will do", only to realise months later, that what you have been trying to fit your business in doesn't really suit you or your business, and its simply to inflexible to fit your needs.

The great thing is that you don’t have to settle for a website you cannot control.

All our sites for example use a content management system (Drupal CMS) and once we show you how it works you won't want to go back to the old days of unchangeable static pages. You will discover the advantages of being able to update your site yourself, pushing an in-store sale or displaying your latest piece of art, all  in a couple of easy steps.

Having experience with both running a small business, as well as working as a freelancer and promoting music and art we believe that the great advantages a good database driven website has to offer should be made use of by the people who work for themselves, or promote themselves and who don’t have as many resources at their disposal as big companies.

Here at smartsites4u we love the autonomy and freedom that latest technology has to offer.

A website is something that for comparatively little outlay will really help you cut some of those costs, and lets you automate many things.

Google, Bing and Yahoo (to only name 3 popular search engines) will look at your website and evaluate the quality of its pages and this will affect your position in the natural search pages.

The key to using the search engines effectively is to develop an understanding about the type of keywords and phrases used by your customers.

We build all of our sites using Drupal, a "free and open-source content management system (CMS) and content management framework (CMF) written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public Licence. It is used as a back-end system for at least 2.1% of all websites worldwide ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including whitehouse.govand data.gov.uk. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration." (*Source http://en.wikipedia.org/Wiki/Drupal) Read more

What is the best web design?

In our opinion, the best web design is the stuff that helps your customer to find the information they need straight away without looking at endless flashy pages. The sites we like are the ones that are so user friendly you don't actually even notice how easy it is to get around and find the stuff you are looking for.

Usability and accessibility are key elements for all of our sites. We want our sites to be easy to use (for your customers) and easy to update (for you). Read more

Try to think about the information that you often find the most useful when looking for a business/product, service or event.

Some of the most common things we look for are:
