Whether you have an existing business website up and running or have been trying to design one yourself for your business, you have likely seen how difficult and time-consuming it can be. We’ve outlined how an online personal assistant could help you prepare, create or maintain your website to save you time, money and needless agony.
Creating It From Scratch
The hardest part of getting your business online is designing your website. Deciding whether to custom code your site or use a Content Management System (CMS) such as Wix, WordPress or Shopify to create your website is the first step of this process. From there, wireframes need to be built and copy created before this information can be turned into an actual working website.
An online personal assistant can assist with parts of this process or can take the entire task off of your hands. Having an expert guide you, at the very least, along this journey is essential to ensuring that you end up with a sustainable, professional online platform that attracts customers as opposed to scaring them off!
Domain and Hosting
Once your website or landing page has been designed, you then need to make it accessible via the internet. Choosing a short, memorable domain is the first step to ensuring customers can find you online. Your domain refers to the URL that acts almost as your handle on the net. Hosting, on the other hand, refers to the little corner of the internet that you “rent out” to store your website on.
Many intermediary companies exist through which domains and hosting packages can be purchased. It is best to have a specialist take care of this, like our best Filipino virtual assistants. They will save your business money and ensure that your hosting packages include important add-ons like SSL Certificates (which protect your website’s secure connection and data).
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Another typical area that many business owners require help in is optimising their websites for searches. There is no point in having a website if no one sees it. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a complex process that is ongoing. Optimising your site to show up on Google search results includes continuously improving your site’s architecture, updating tags and meta descriptions and using tools such as blog posts.
Virtual assistants who have SEO experience will help to ensure that all of the money and time you have sunk into your stunning site doesn’t go to waste. They’ll make sure your website is discoverable online.
