Its time to get a new website but where do you start?
You might find the idea daunting but it doesn't have to be complicated. A new website can highlight your business objectives and result in a review of the direction you are taking. Use our 5 step web design brief to get you on the right track.
At Artful - Web, Print, Design, we specialise in Joomla websites. Joomla is an Open Source program that enables you to edit and update your website with little or no conventional web authoring skills. If you can edit a Word document, you can edit a Joomla website.
Joomla is a very powerful tool that enables you to add sophisticated web applications such as blogs, members log-ins, shopping carts and fantastic AJAX interfaces and components to name just a few.
Basically, we create a custom template and train you how to use Joomla. From then on, you can continue to grow and evolve your web site at your own convenience.

Its easy to win with Google. The sad thing is most businesses don't even bother...
This Google stuff; is it nerdy and hard?
No not at all. We speak to a lot of businesses about Google. Nine times out of ten when we look at what they need to do to rank more highly in Google its pretty basic. Most of it is fairly common sense and we are adding articles with more detail all the time.
So is it worth the effort?
Oh yes definitely, a higher position in Google will generate much more traffic for your website. In an article in our Google Tips section, we show one example of a dramatic increase in visitors for a pretty average Australian business after they did just a few things to optimise their website for google.
Sounds great - What are the steps?
The number one tip is just to know what your clients are searching for. You can't win in Google if you don't know what you want to win for. Do some inspired guess work, ask clients (or even friends rellies etc). This is pretty obvious but read the other tips on our site or contact us for more Google info.
