Thomas Adkins, owner of Adkins9.net Web Design, announced the opening of his new business, Adkins9.net Web Design.
Adkins9.net will specialize in website design, but will also offer a
combination of internet web site building, hosting, optimization and
consulting services, in addition to (in some cases) hardware, software,
and networking solutions. Their website can be found at www.Adkins9.net.
Adkins9.net Web Design, located in western North Carolina and based in
Horse Shoe, will offer services primarily in the Asheville and
Hendersonville areas, including all of Buncombe and Henderson counties,
in addition to most of Transylvania and Polk counties.
Adkins also offers some tips for the new business. According to Adkins,
“if youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re in business, then youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re likely looking for ways to increase
that business, to bring in more customers. One of the first approaches
that usually come to mind will be marketing, one definition being “the
process of planning and executing the conception, pricing, promotion,
and distribution of goods, services, and ideas to create exchanges that
satisfy individual and organization objectives.”
“Part of this concept will be advertising, or the business of drawing
public attention to goods and services. As part of this approach, we
consider who, as a group, our customers are, and where we can find
them. Needless to say, in this day of computers (or PCÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s,) we look at
the internet, or to having a web presence online. This means promotion
of our goods or services by means of a web site (sometimes called
website,) either our own or that of someone else.
“Your website, an electronic means of advertising, first must be
available to the consumer. Other than by direct referral, “see my
website at www.myname.com or www.adkins9.net”
(your domain name,) your prospective customers will search for certain
keywords. These keywords must not only appear in your website, but must
be available in your “meta tags” (tags on your website visible to the
search engines, but essentially invisible to the public.) In this way
the public can find you on the web by searching for words that describe
his or her interest. We call this search engine optimization (or SEO.)
This first part of your web design must be your message, perhaps brief
and to the point. The second part, as in any advertising, is to present
your message in an appealing way. Ideally, our message will convey
valuable information (or news) to the public, and providing education
and entertainment (be fun to visit) at the same time. Your webdesign
may include pictures, photos, even art. Finally, unless you have a
large business, you will need someone to provide web hosting and
maintain your website. Web hosting, simply, is someone putting your
information on their computer with an internet connection. Email (or
e-mail) services are usually provided as well.
