Does your business need a website?

The overwhelming use of the Internet makes it abundantly clear that every business should have a website, especially a small business. Without a website, you could be missing out on opportunities to increase sales and gain new customers.

Here are several strong reason to have a website for your small business.

1. Your business has competition. If your competitors have a website, your business cannot survive without one. This is especially true if the bulk of your business isn’t the result of word-of-mouth. Local retailers, online sellers and manufacturers use websites to communicate with existing customer and to gain the loyalty of new customers. While all of your competition may not have a website, you may be losing customers to those that do. Once they’re on your customer’s website, they may not have an incentive to look elsewhere.

2. Your business needs to build new relationships to thrive. The website allows you to send your customers and potential customers monthly emails or newsletters. By staying in touch with customers, your brand can become better known while making it easier for your customers to understand your business. A website can also be a great customer service tool, allowing your customers to reach your 24-7.

3. A website can give your small business credibility. First impressions are still important in every facet of life. A well-designed and functional website can give your business the credibility it needs to make a good, first impression. You may even discover that the majority of customers are willing to do business with you because you provide a website. If your website is functional an easy to navigate, that’s like extra icing on the cake for customers.

4. Every business owner is aware of the power of business cards. They’re an effective and inexpensive way to advertise a product or service. Your website can be a new, digital business card. Only it has the potential to reach hundreds, even thousands more customers than a conventional business card. Properly designed and optimized for search, your website can provide a convenient way for new and potential customers to communicate with you at their convenience.

5. Your website will give you the power of advertising, without the cost. Websites can offer a very inexpensive method to let the world know about your products or services. A also allows you to communicate valuable information in easier and less expensive ways than other forms of conventional advertising. Your website can be like a silent partner, working faithfully to help grow you business 24/7. Send emails, offer special deals and publicize sales. The sky is the limit with an effective website.

Virus and Malware
27th December 2016

What are Viruses/Malware?

Malware is an umbrella term for different malicious software such as viruses, fake security software, spyware, adware, and browser hijacking software. Malware can send your personal information to third parties without your knowledge, and it can also cause your browser to stop responding or to close unexpectedly. With all the new toolbars brought about by the malware, the browser becomes unstable, resulting in frequent browser crashes.

In addition to crashes, malware can cause an overall poor performance of your devices. Laptops and desktop computers can take longer, and then the device usually stops responding while in use. Sometimes, the internet connection encounters problems, such as stopping unexpectedly; there are also problems with the applications, especially security programs. After awhile, It becomes difficult, and frustrating, to try and adjust configuration options and system settings when they are not available at all.

If you’re looking for signs of malware affecting your device, advertisements popping up even if the browser is closed are good indications. Other indications can include the browser automatically opening just to display ads, or when opening new pages, or looking at a page’s search results.

Viruses, on the other hand, are the most commonly known type of malware. They can erase the files in your computer or worse, they can hijack your system and use it to send spam, share illegal content, or even attack other systems. There are different types of viruses; some of them can be easily detected and blocked by antivirus programs, but there are some that are difficult to detect and can infect your system.

Examples of the recent viruses are Cryptolocker and Gameover Zeus. Cryptolocker puts code into your files and asks you to pay around £100 to £1000 so you can decrypt your files, while Gameover Zeus accesses your banking details and other valuable information.

Malware and viruses get into the system through drive-by downloads. Suspicious websites are the primary sources of viruses, while attachments from suspicious emails can also host viruses and malware. However, most of the time, users are not aware that they are already installing the malware or the virus into their system. This makes it necessary for the user to safeguard their system through high-quality antivirus programs.

Malware and viruses pose serious threats to your computers and laptops. When it comes to protecting your systems, you want the best security and support. I can offer that security and protection so feel free to get in touch.

Slow PC
27th December 2016

Is your computer Slow?

If a PC is plagued by bloatware, viruses, malware, or an overabundance of programs is draining the speed of the processor, I’ll have the solution. By offering repair services to alleviate slow computer processing, slow computer help is only a few clicks away.

If a computer is running at less than optimal speeds, the first defence may be to reboot the PC. However, if a reboot does not solve the problem, there are additional steps to restore a slow computer. Any programs operating in the background are utilising memory and the central processing unit (CPU), thus slowing the operating speed of the PC.

While scans are in progress, programs such as anti-virus software, spyware protection, or other security software can often decrease the functionality of the computer. Yet, sometimes scanning for spyware and malware may be able to combat the issues of a slow running computer. scanning and removing any viruses found on a personal computer may help.

A PC could also be slow due to the hard drive. A lack of hard drive space, as well as a bad, corrupt, or fragmented hard drive, could be a possible cause of slow processor speeds. The hard drive can be cleaned or upgraded if less than 200-500 MB of free space is available. The user could remove any old games, files, or programs from the PC, delete temporary files, or even run a disk clean up. If these options do not help, running a systems Defrag or ScanDisk may verify that the data is arranged in the ideal order, and that there are no physical malfunctions with the computer’s hard drive.

Additional problems that could be the cause of a slow PC are hardware conflicts, out of date drivers or operating systems, low memory (RAM), or even the overheating of the computer or processor. Upgrading RAM to at least 2GB for a 32-bit system and 4GB for 64-bit system may require my help. However, changing to the latest Windows operating system or cleaning the air vents and fans of the computer are simple at-home changes that could be done by yourself. For hardware and driver issues, I can help.

After trying all possible solutions and still struggling with a slow computer, It’s time to give me a call. Leave the hassle and worry to the professionals; there is no reason a computer should not be running at optimal speeds and I can certainly help you with that.
