New affordable website design service launched

Love Andsover web design service Andover

Digital is not the future. It’s today.

Love Andover, Andover Radio and Lionheart Technology have announced they will be launching a new website design service, exclusively for businesses in North West Hampshire.

The local partnership offers businesses of all sizes cost-efficient options to ensure local companies have – and benefit from – an attractive digital presence.

“Content is king”, says co-founder Richard Rowles. “Our service not only designs attractive, mobile responsive websites, but we ensure that content is continually added, ensuring your website is ‘alive’ and has a much improved search capability.”

Proprietary systems allow website content to be shared across the Love Andover network, meaning business content can be found on multiple sites and be shared socially.

“We don’t just build websites, our service is like having your own marketing team”, says Mr Rowles who has over 20 years experience in web development.

Bill Browne publisher of the Andover Advertiser says on their own website, “We know that 30 per cent of consumers won’t consider a business who does not have a website”.  The article also claims, ’46 per cent of customers say a website is the biggest factor determining whether they trust a company.’

Following the announcement that the local newspaper will also try and provide a web design service, Mr Rowles says, “I am not sure I would trust a company whose own website is painfully slow, awkward to read and badly populated with videos, adverts and pop-ups. A website has to be clean, clear and concise, visitors need to be able to find what they want quickly and easily”.

David Harber founder of Love Andover adds, “It’s all very well having a pretty website, but that’s of no use if no-one knows it’s there. That’s why we don’t just offer a design service, we provide social connectivity, a team of people to generate content, images and rich media like videos and podcasts, plus we provide a marketing solution including radio advertising and social media marketing to ensure people are aware of clients’ businesses.

“Radio is consistently effective in driving web traffic.”

The new service will provide three levels of web design and content management ranging from as little as £39 per month. Unlike many other services, there is no set-up fee, making this an affordable solution for smaller businesses.

Mr Rowles concludes, “Having a website is an essential part of running a business. We take all the hassle away from business owners having to manage the website, plus we provide content, social media and a local marketing campaign.”
