Get it right the first time, as changing things later will always add cost

Registering a web domain

Choosing a domain is a huge decision that you will have to live with forever. Your web address is likely to match your branding so making a mistake will cost time and money to fix.

Setting up email.

Using freemail like Gmail, Outlook, AOL or Yahoo does not look professional so using your own domain is essential. As your web and email addresses are printed on business cards and advertising material you won’t want to change them.

Website

Most businesses need a website, which might be anything from an information site to an online shop taking orders and payments. Moving forward search engine optimisation (SEO) will be required if you expect your website to generate business. Don’t underestimate the work needed in SEO which is a substantial ongoing commitment. Many SEO companies who will do this for you, usually for a monthly fee. The problem with this is that the content goes hand in hand with SEO. This means the SEO work has to involve changing content and only people close to the business can generate quality content. Therefore we recommend that we help you get the basics right and give you some guidance on getting your SEO started. You can hire specialists later if you have the budget and they will be able to fine tune what you have already done.

Telephones

Most new companies will use VoIP phones as they are cheaper and have more features to help a growing business. VoIP phones are not tied to a physical phone line so are easy to move. When planning for the future, portability is essential for a growing business so when the company moves to bigger premises, relocating the phones is quick, cheap and straightforward. Phone numbers will be printed on business cards and advertising so choosing a suitable supplier and correctly designing the system are essential to avoid future problems.

Atomik.biz offers a service to set up all the required systems. These include registering a suitable domain name, setting up email accounts, setting up a webpage and setting up telephones.

Advertising

There are large numbers or free online advertising sites. Our experience is they generate very little if any business. However, listing your business on some of these sites is probably worth doing if you are in a specialist business. If you have a van getting that sign written will probably be the best advertising you can get. Get your phone numbers, email and website working first so those details can go on the van.
