Helping your business succeed online

The business of getting online and successfully marketing your business is becoming more and more complicated, but Handcrafted Websites can guide you through those complications, advising on issues like the choice of domain name, whether to let someone else buy the domain name on your behalf (answer: No!), which calendar/booking system to use, whether your website will need an SSL certificate (to use the more secure HTTPS protocol), how to structure and optimise the website so it stands a chance of getting a good ranking with the search engines, how to use a content management system so you can update the content of the website yourself later, and numerous other issues. And all the web design advice you might need for your holiday property business is completely free so don't hesitate to get in touch.

In short, Handcrafted Websites, with its experience designing websites for holiday cottage, villa, guest house and other holiday property businesses, strives to provide:

Responsive holiday property websites

Having a website that works well on mobile and tablet devices as well as laptops and desktop computers is now a "must". One solution is to have your website built with a responsive website design, i.e. one that automatically adapts to the width of the visitor's device, so that people on narrower screens don't have to scroll horizontally. This avoids the cost of having to build a second website for mobile users.

CMS powered holiday cottage villa websites

We offer a flexible web design service as standard. You tell us your initial design preferences; we upload a design suggestion; you comment on it; and we revise it; and we carry on until you are happy with the result; at no extra charge.

To put you in control of your website we will build it with a content management system (CMS). With only basic PC skills you can then change the text and the photos on your website yourself (alternatively we can do that for you).


Website SEO, UK

Success online means people being able to find your business or holiday property website easily using the search engines (Google and Bing). So your website needs to be built to be search engine friendly. Known as search engine optimisation (SEO), this involves careful adjustment of the code and the content of your web pages to highlight the phrases people will use in their searches.

Optimisation is included as standard when we build a website for you.
