F.A.Qs

This is where Cumbria Web Designers recommend you put a list of the normal questions you would expect people to ask about your Services; Goods and your self and your abilities. This can save you a lot of time describing what, why, when and how you carry out your work.

It is the most readily understood and simplest manner of explaining what you do and it is so easy to do on your own web site.

You should get friends, family and business advisers to ask what you do. Have them role play as a hard nosed prospective customer; it is these questions with your answers that will form this easily understood but vital section of your company website.

On occasions, you could start this list as a very simple one and add to it as customers repeatedly ask the same question/s . Indeed a combination of both methods is probably what will occur.

F.A.Qs

Small businesses normally only need a simple “Brochure Website” this type of site is suitable when information on the site is infrequently updated, indeed you may not need our services as a ‘Facebook’ page may be all that you need.
