Granite City Web
Founder & Developer
Who We Are
I've lived in Aberdeen most of my life and have specialised in IT consulting for over 20 years. During that time, I've gained an insight into different methodologies and concepts as well as IT skills and artistic skills ... all of which help me to help you.
I'm passionate about my work and want to do my best for you in a way that suits your business and your pocket.
What We Do
Your website has the power to help your business grow and transform by attracting new leads and enquiries. If you only use social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) as your main marketing tool, you are missing out on capturing potential new customers. If you want to improve your sales and reach and also help your customers to understand your ethics, motivation, products and services, you need a simple, easy-to-use website.
Your website needs to look great on PCs, tablets and phones and needs to be optimised so that search engines like Google or Bing can find it. Most importantly, the content of your site is critical to drawing in new customers as well as retaining existing customers.
Granite City Web can provide ongoing management of your site and, should you wish, can also maintain your social media pages too. We will undertake any of your graphic design / artwork requirements and can create & deliver all of your marketing materials such as brochures, flyers, business cards, signage, car vinyls, magazine adverts, promotional give-aways, etc. With our extensive procurement expertise, we can assist with purchase of your materials and supplies if required.
We can also provide short training courses for people who struggle with using their computers and software (e.g. for using Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, etc. and Microsoft Windows, email software, etc.).
What We Believe
We focus on small businesses that want a quality product but at a reasonable cost. Once we’ve worked out what you need, I’ll give you an estimate of the total cost and, if anything needs to change, we will talk about & agree everything before going ahead so there will be no surprises.
How We Work
I will help you to understand what is needed and together we can:
develop the content of the website in conjunction with your needs, retaining your personality, tone and business approach
design the site map (which pages you need on the website)
consider your business goals and objectives
discuss the objectives of your website (e.g. do you want to acquire new customers, do you want to target new markets, do you want to sell online, etc.)
agree key audiences / user groups (e.g. existing customers, new prospects, suppliers)
define each page (consider purpose of each page and what visitors would be expected to do)
agree content summary for each page
I will then develop the site and can, if required, register the website domain name or URL and take care of all other aspects, leaving you to get on with making your business successful!
