They end up purchasing stuff online, which means that you will lose those clients if you don’t create your website. At the end of the day, customers want convenience and a great new way for them to purchase the stuff they want without wasting any time. Yes, their time is important, and by creating a website for your business you show that you value your customers!

Your company gets to be open non-stop if you create a website for your business. This means faster purchases for your clients and happier clients as a whole. But this also means you get to offer faster and better support to your audience as well. This is a crucial factor most of the time because a lot of companies lack good support and features like this. So, it can make a whole lot of a difference to be open non-stop and help your customers when they need you the most.

8.Reaching a larger audience

Whenever you create a website, you get to have more and more people learn about your products and services. This is very good for your branding, and it helps your company grow as a whole. Not having a large exposure can hurt your business, so reaching a larger audience for your business makes a lot of sense. And yes, it can help you quite a lot in the long term. Just consider giving it a shot and the value can be extremely impressive!

    What is Web Hosting?

    When you design a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

    Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.advertisingsolutions.co.za), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.


    What is a Domain Name?

    A domain name (www.yourcompanyname.co.za) is essentially your company’s Internet address; the same way your company’s street address is used to find your offices, a domain name is used to find your website. Consider this: Pick a domain name that’s memorable and relevant!

    Please note: Domain pricing depends on the extension, see pricing here: https://advertisingsolutions.co.za/domains/


    Stock photos are professionally taken photographs that we can buy online to use commercially, without having to stress over copy-right issues. It can be used to enhance your website or in marketing material.

    Stock photos can save you quite a bit of time and money, as you do not have to hire a photographer just to have some quality images for your website. While stock images cover a broad range of applications, it can be difficult to acquire pictures for a certain niche, or a specific product.

    What is a slider?

    A banner slider is comprised of images and text on multiple slides, allowing you to rotate content on a single space on your website. It’s most commonly the first thing you see (apart from the logo and menu) on a website’s home page. The purpose of the slider is to catch the attention of the viewer while being visually appealing and easy to read. It can be used to display selected information, such as promotions or highlighting specific products or services, and can also be used to easily navigate your site.

    How many should I use?

    This is dependable on the amount of content you have on your website. Small websites that do not have much information 1-2 sliders will be enough. Websites with more pages and content to market will require more sliders to make the navigation of the site easily digestible for the viewer, while promoting certain products or content. We do not recommend more than 5 slides, as we find that most viewers spend a few minutes on your home page before moving on to another page and won’t view more than 5 slides.
