Rough Guide to
A rough guide to what it’s all
about and how we can help...
Since the 1980’s we have enjoyed helping businesses
grow with our creative services. We want everyone to
be able to benefit from the very latest ideas and
technology in design, print, web and marketing.
We have launched nettl of Corsham to increase our
product range and expand our online offering.
Yet again Corsham Print stepped up to produce the print
materials for the show. They also helped with aspects of
design and the quality of their work is outstanding. I
commend them at all levels and if you are looking for a
local business, then they are your people.
The Wiltshire Beekeepers
Throughout many years of association with Corsham Print
we have always found them cooperative, professional,
competitively priced and consistently capable of delivering
on time. When we needed a fresh, contemporary look for
our catalogues, they redesigned every aspect of it. We do
not believe that we could have done better elsewhere.

Let’s find your fast path
A website that you’re proud of and which accurately reflects
your brand is one of the most important aspects of any
business. Research suggests that having a website can
increase turnover by around 45%. Despite this, it is thought
that around two million UK businesses still don’t have one.
We don’t believe ‘one size fits all’. Every business is
different… and so is every website we create.

Our sites are built to last. They can grow as your business
grows. You don’t want to find your site is redundant next
month just because you need to add a new feature.
This modular approach means we get you online quickly with
our proven paths and then upgrade your site in a structured
way when you’re ready.
It’s useful if you know where you want to go, but you don’t
need to do everything at once. We find it’s best to
continuously develop your site, deploying small changes, as
and when you need them.
Types of websites
The internet is vast, there are billions of websites online, all
competing for some share of peoples online browsing each
day. When you’re starting a new website, it can be
overwhelming to think about all the other websites out there.
To keep things simple we breakdown our sites in four types:
nettl:one - basic website
A basic website is made up of one to five pages, and requires
only very simple functionality. They are ‘brochure style’
websites. In addition to the core pages, they have a contact
and landing page.
Basic websites are great if you’re after a very simple, stripped
back online presence. It is a place to showcase your business,
and receive enquiries. Think of it kind of like a modern day
A great place to start and we ensure that it is future proof for

nettl:connect - small business website
A small business website is the perfect size for a business that
requires a little more than just a very basic website. These are
also ‘brochure style’, but are far more feature-rich. Such
features may include: integrating social media, a content
management system, google analytics and google maps.

or room reservations? They will also have more pages than a

If you’re setting up a website for your business and plan to
sell your products through the site, then this is the type of
website you need to build.
The cost of ecommerce websites can vary massively. The
price is impacted by the number of items you want to stock,
and the number of varieties of each item that are available. It
will also, of course, depend on the number of additional
features that you want to incorporate. Normally we would
include an order management system, delivery tracking
functionality and a live chat facility, in addition to the features
included in a small business website.

SEO / Marketing / Adwords
Let’s say you own a cupcake shop in Bristol. Googling
‘cupcake Bristol’ produces millions of results. So how
do you make sure that your business appears near the
top? A lot of it has to do with how relevant your
business is, how up-to-date the content on your site
is, and how many visitors you get coming in from
other areas, eg. social media. However there are also
some additional steps you can take to make sure
you’re securing the best position possible.
That’s where SEO comes in. SEO stands for Search
Engine Optimisation. It’s the process of making a site
the best that it can be in terms of search engines.
Search engines give preference to sites that load fast
and offer the information that people are searching
for, amongst other things.

Things your should know
To own and operate an effective website there are a few
things you will need to bear in mind.
Your Domain Name is your business’ home on the web, your
online identity. As a website address it’s the gateway for
people to see what you have to offer. It tells people who you

register it yourself and send us the details.

name is, .co.uk domains cost as little as £4.99 per year
whereas .com domains can range from £9.99 upwards.

servers. A web hosting service provider, is a business that
provides the technologies and services needed for the
website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet.

need to do is type your website address or domain into their
browser. Their computer will then connect to the server and

All our sites are hosted on the most advanced Amazon
servers based in the UK.
An SSL certificate ensures that the provider is who they claim
to be and also indicates secure connections between
personal devices and websites. SSL certificates are important
for website trust and to help protect customers from
becoming a victim to scammers.
You can see if a site has SSL by looking at the small padlock in
your browser, if it is locked the site is secure.
