Designing your own electrical business website

Posted on May 8, 2020 at 11:35 am

It is essential for any successful business to have a web presence in order to successfully market their business and if possible should be a website and a social media business page but with the cost of paying a professional website designer beyond the reach of small business owners starting up it is a sensible idea to try designing and setting up your own electrical contractor’s website.

Online there are a vast array of tutorials which help the novice designer and so it is a good idea to find other electrical contractor sites and evaluate these before you start. Make a note of the common features and anything that is particularly inspiring in terms of content, layout and colour schemes and collate your ideas.

Many sites offer templates to get you started which can be customised to your electrical company with your business name and logo. Your content which may include the services you offer, examples of work completed, and reviews can be uploaded easily and should include a mixture of images, photographs and text. SEO tools are built in to enable your website to rank higher when potential clients search online for your business.

It is essential that your website is up to date and links that are set up to other businesses work correctly as visitors will click elsewhere if this is not maintained.
