Annie Robina is an artist who lives in rural Monmouthshire in Wales and she specialises in stained glass artwork and glass fusion designs.
She not only produces these works of art for sale, but also runs courses for local residents at her home in Abergavenny.
She contacted Mangoho with the need for a new website, at a price she could afford, which also had a Content Management System that would allow her to manage the content of her website, without the need to go through and rely on any hosting or web design companies.
Annie opted for our small business starter package which gave her a 15 page weskit including
Being an artist Annie's website is very visual, so included several pages with separate photo galleries and also functions for viewers to share these images on their social networks.
We were able to assist Annie in writing the content for her website based on the chosen keywords for her area of expertise. All of the pages were search engine optimised including page titles, description and keywords using the inbuilt functions of our Content Management System.
Our website content management system, Zoho Sites, includes a Contact Form, which will not only alert the website owner of new leads but will save these in an inbuilt database for future reference. This was used to channel interested parties from Annie's website pages to the Contact form to Annie for follow up.
There is also the option to expanse this to include integration to Zoho CRM, providing a powerful customer relationship management system to help improve sales and marketing efforts.
We are able to keep costs down by utilising one of many prebuilt website templates. Templates can be modified, but by using a template format and by not going for fully customised designs, you get the following benefits:
Getting a website live, if you are not technical or have never done it before, can be quite painful the first time round! We fully understand this and therefore offer this service as part of the package.
In addition we offer .com domains for as little as 8GBP per year, or we can use a domain that you have purchased elsewhere.
Annie's website is at http://annierobinaglassdesigns.co.uk and you can see the home page can be seen below, Annie deliberately chose a 'dark and moody' design:
The above package and this sort of website will set you back just 150 GBP, which will give you a fully functional 15 page website, plus a website content management system (CMS) to allow you to maintain your own website as needed, when needed.
