Online Marketing

  Effective promotion need not be expensive.   A fantastic website is a great addition to your business. You can give the address to potential customers who can find out more about you are and what you offer and examples of what you have done. However, it can be used to bring in new customers who are looking on the internet.   There are several ways to do this and it is a complicated area with many pitfalls. One thing we do recommend though is don’t pay anyone any money who “guarantees” you the top spot in a search engine such as Google, there are no guarantees and it can soon become an endless pit of cash.   Here at Bristol©PCs we understand that small businesses and organisations don’t have large sums of money to invest in online marketing. We concentrate on the following aspects of online marketing which don’t involve large sums of money: Search Engine Optimisation – Making sure your website is designed properly so that Google and other search engines promote it. Social Media – Helping you use social networking sites such as Facebook to promote your business. Link Building – Getting your site listed on as many other sites as possible.   We can, of course, help you with other types of marketing where more cost is involved. Unlike a lot of other companies claiming to do the same we won’t bleed you...

Email Setup

  Communication with a touch of class.   Most people have an email address these days. A lot of addresses end in @hotmail.com or @gmail.com or something similar, which is probably just fine for a person using emails to contact their friends. Businesses and clubs, however, will benefit from a proper email address, for example:   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it (This is an example only, do not use)   This not only gives a much more professional look on signs and business cards but is also easy to remember.   In order to get such an address you firstly need a domain name. Once this is in place we can set up as many email addresses as you require. When all of this is done we can even help you with setting up your computer to send and receive emails, it really is that easy....
