There are only 2 ways that your website will appear on the first page of a Google search.
- SEO (Search Engin Optimisation)
- AdWords (Pay Google per click for key word)
Both of which take time to manage and cost money
Do Swift Cyber Studio offer these services which is SEO or Adwords management.
We do not offer SEO or AdWords management as this is a highly specialised discipline and falls outside of the scope of our business.
Your website is essentially a digital brochure to refer your clients to using your email, business card or any forms of marketing including word of mouth.
Can I have a domain with another server provider and then choose a different server provider to create a website for me?
Unfortunately no you will not be able too. Reason being in order for the web designer to create your website the domain must be transferred over to Swift cyber studio. When this occurs the admin department will then send a transfer request to your current server provider and then they have to approve it in order for the new server provider to start building the website.
What is the difference between template Logo and Professional Logo?
Template logo you will basically receive a bunch of logo’s that you have to choose from and then just the colour will be changed and the name will change. Where with the Professional logo you will have to give the designer an idea of what you interested in and the graphic designer will design about 5 logo’s for you from scratch which you will be able to choose which one you interested in.
How much business cards do you receive?
You will receive an amount of 500 business cards and unfortunately only one person name can go on the cards for example you won’t be able to make 250 cards for Delicia and 250 cards for Kamohelo .
Will there be a hosting fee you have to pay for the website per month.
Yes there will be and that depends on the website you have because remember the reason you do pay a hosting fee, because all your files get saved on a server and that takes up some space.
Can you add videos on your website?
Yes if the services is something you do yourself certainly you will be able to put that on a website. However only certain websites have the ability to allow this function which is word press website.
How do you get the best website?
Well in order for you to get the best website the amount of content you supply plays a very big role. The more content you give the better the website the designer can design for you. Even images you supply should be of good quality.
