A recent survey by CompareThe Market shows that people are becoming increasingly worried about going back into public:
'For the fifth week in a row, the number of people who say they would not be confident going to restaurants, cafes, pubs and cinemas rose, from 53% to 54%.'
It goes without saying, the same applies to patronage of many other types of businesses too. What does this mean for small traders & the self employed not to mention the hundreds of thousands #FogottenLtd or #excludedUK?
ANSWER: A whole lot, because business is based on confidence; If confidence is lacking, then consumers hold back, and YOUR ALREADY SKINNY BOTTOM LINE is at risk. We're seeing this happen RIGHT NOW as the country drifts in an Ocean of Uncertainty. Your very SURVIVAL in business is at stake.....

In these most precarious & uncertain times a credible online portfolio isn't merely desirable, it's pretty much essential for anyone seeking to SURVIVE IN BUSINESS. But some of you still AREN'T CONVINCED. You are mistrustful of our industry! And with good reason. Way too many 'web agencies' make 'beautiful websites' with 'stunning pages' that are either NEVER FOUND ONLINE or bring NO TANGIBLE BENEFITS WHATSOEVER to their hard working owners. Before commissioning a new site it is wise to engage in a comprehensive consultation followed by in depth competitor analysis, but sadly this is often neglected to 'SAVE COSTS'. Too many agencies marketing websites are only interested in 'piling them high & selling them cheap' to make a FAST BUCK. What happens to the site 3-4 months down the line is of little interest to them, UNLESS OF COURSE THEY CAN PERSUADE YOU TO PAY MORE to 'get traffic'. In the bad old days these tactics were known as 'Bait & Switch'. You're tempted in by a cheap offer, you pay's your money and you take's your chance. When it doesn't work, they switch you to a higher price product...which in most cases is the product you should have bought in the first place, but DIDN'T due to the perceived cost!!! Sharp Practice in other words. It's the Wild West out there, similar to the Double Glazing Industry back in the 70s & 80s. A meaningful consultation with a knowledgeable Web Designer followed by solid competitor analysis is considered Best Practice. The initial meeting need only take 30-45 minutes, but the analysis report in pdf format could easily take 8-12 hours work. £2-300 is not unreasonable for data of this kind. However, between NOW & 28th February 2021 we at indemandonline are offering a 'lite' version of the same for just £70. Rest assured, it'll still give you valuable insight into how your proposed website should look & what key information it should contain. But you'll need to be quick, our time is very limited. So, to claim this genuine and valuable offer, please call Jerry anytime on 07902-897609. Talk soon!

We have a reputation for UNDER PROMISING & OVER DELIVERING but we don't expect you to believe that. After all, words come cheap; So why not PUT US TO THE TEST? Call us on 07902- 897609 & lets get started.
We firmly believe in BRITISH JOBS for BRITISH WORKERS; that's why we keep everything 'in house' & NEVER sub work abroad to places like India or Eastern Europe.
Remember: Every cloud has a SILVER LINING. By combining age old methods with NEW ONLINE technology, you'll weather the storm and come out the other side a WINNER, not a LOSER.
Whether you're a One Man Band or a Multi-National Conglomerate, a website is a website at the end of the day! It's astonishing how many sites these days fail to deliver, many creating an unfavorable impression from the start by not working properly or by not having been accurately proof read, resulting in grammatical errors & spelling mitsakes [sic, see what we mean?] Remember the old adage 'You never get a second chance to create a first impression'? First impressions COUNT, and you definitely DON'T want visitors turned off by issues prompting them to move on; you DO want them to stay and ENGAGE with you, and yes 'BUY', a dirty word to some but we call it 'DOING BUSINESS' aka: ↙
Achieving online success is easier said than done, requiring a stepped approach, which takes time. Don't be fooled into thinking a cheap and cheerful online presence is going to cut it....ten years ago you might have got away with it but NOT NOW. Having said that, a simple but well constructed BUDGET site (from £299) beats a shoddy complex one every time. At indemandonline all pricing is bespoke. We don't believe in a 'one size fits all' approach, and neither should you. We've also introduced Easy Web Design Payment Terms to help spread the load during the current COVID-19 crisis & oncoming Second Great Depression. This means low deposit and balances you can pay monthly once your site goes live. Check out these 3 levels of service to get a 'feel' for what we can do for YOU. Don't be afraid to inquire 🙂
We've never been ones to follow the fold at indemandonline, so expect things to be a wee bit different. In a good way. We're a blend of old school experience and GEN-Z savvy. Business is all about sales; without sales there IS NO BUSINESS, and sales come from leads, so you need to think of a website first and foremost as a lead generation machine working 24/7. In the past we had YELLOW PAGES calling the tune; now we're up against GOOGLE. A search engine results page (SERP) is the page displayed by a web search engine (like Google, Facebook, Bing) in response to a query by a searcher.
The main component of the SERP is the listing of results that are returned by the search engine in response to a keyword query, so WE NEED TO KNOW all about your model customer, what he looks like and what he thinks about when he's looking for your product.
People think this stuff came with the web, but that's not true....a good Company Sales Director with a team of reps and canvassers did much the same thing 'back in the day'. So when you contact us about a new website or upgrading an existing one, be prepared to make an apppointment for one of our team to meet face to face so we can learn about your target audience and company goals; that's a great FIRST STEP. Initial consultations are around 45 minutes and we make no charge for them. You'll find us lively and enthusiastic, with a no-nonsense CAN-DO attitude. The modern (Millennial) way is to 'big everything up' and make the most trivial tasks seem complicated...and yep, you guessed it, time consuming and EXPENSIVE. You definitely won't find that at indemandonline.
