3 Simple Rules

  1. People search online find the goods and services they want.

  2. People use social media to form opinions on which goods and services to use.

  3. People scan through company web sites to validate their purchase decisions.

 

These people are your potential customers.  If your business is not present online and engaging the community they will look elsewhere.

Today, just having a web site is no longer good enough.  Businesses need to be found on the search engines, talked about in social media, and interact with their customers on multiple fronts.

  • I can't thank Peter enough for the outstanding job we has done creating the website for Kitchen Design Plus. It is very polished and extremely easy to navigate. I have no doubt that it is one of the the key factors in driving quality clients to my services. Since its creation in 2013 my website has been updated many times in a very timely fashion and for a reasonable price. Working with Peter is always a pleasure,  combined with his knowledge and professionalism I highly recommend him to anyone looking for web design.

  • After researching many people, we chose Peter to design our new website and would highly recommend NewGate. We had a good idea of what we wanted and Peter made it happen while providing creative design, input and advice. Peter developed a site for our company that reflects what we do and who we are.

  • Peter has amazing technical skills and can jump in on short notice to help out when you are in a technology bind. He is quick to find a solution, provides hands-on tailored service, and has a great deal of integrity about his work. I haven't had a chance to work with him on a full website design project but from seeing samples of his work and knowing his character, I would highly recommend him for all your web needs.

Services

Site

Think of your web site as a store.  You have a big sign out front so people know it’s the right place.  You have attractive displays of products and clear signage making it easy to find what they need.  Staff are available to help with questions and the whole experience is leading them towards the checkouts.

 

At Newgate we design sites that provide an experience for visitors:

 

  • A fresh look and feel brands the site to your organization

  • Clear navigation and layout that makes information easy to find

  • Goods and services are attractively presented and carefully described

  • Interactive features which allow visitors to ask questions and receive help

  • Visitors are guided through the site towards a call to action

Search

To visit your web site, they must first find it.  A local store for example needs to advertise in the right places, appear in directories, and be found on maps.

 

At Newgate we can:

  • Optimize your site so it will appear in the search engine results

  • Get your site listed in key directories

  • Have your business appear on online maps

  • Boost your visitor traffic with online advertising

Social

Of course the best way to generate business is through word of mouth.  Getting people to talk about your business and recommend you to others provides new customers and enhances your reputation.

 

Social Media is the online equivalent to word of mouth marketing.  People will already be talking about your business for good or bad on Twitter, Facebook and other platforms.  Getting into the conversation and talking to your customers through social media is an important element to doing business online.

 

At Newgate we offer:

 

  • Integration of social media sharing tools into your web site

  • Creation of blogging platforms

  • Creation of Facebook and LinkedIn company pages

  • Social Media coaching for Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and blogging

Site Maintenance

A web site needs regular maintenance to stay up to date, optimized and secure.

 

Newgate can:

 

  • Add and remove text, media, events, and other content

  • Perform updates on WordPress, plug-ins, themes

  • Fix problems

  • Customize themes, styles and plug-ins

  • Investigate and solve domain name issues

  • Troubleshoot hosting issues
