Website Design in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is making its mark on the internet as most companies have adopted websites for their businesses. What might probably differ is the responsiveness and frequency of updates on the majority of Zimbabwe websites. However what is key is that searching for Zimbabwe businesses online you will definitely find something.

We hope that as we enter 2017 more companies will now work on making sure their websites are responsive and are accessible on mobile devices with proper mobile ready formatting. And also work on aligning currency of events and activities at the companies with reality of operations at their businesses. There are some websites that when you go through them you find the emails, addresses and contact numbers appearing there could probably have long changed. It is disappointing that you find a number on the sites then you call it and the person tells they are no longer with that particular organisation.

With some websites and major companies for that matter, you will check on the profiles and realize they still list people who have since left the companies.

2017 is by the corner, to increase business through websites, Zimbabwe companies need to take care of their websites well.

SEO in Zimbabwe | WordCamp Harare 2016

[PICTURE COURTESESY OF TECHZIM.CO.ZW] As we look at improving our service offering to our clients, this past Saturday, 10th of December 2016, we attended the first Harare WordCamp event at the Harare City Library. According to the Wordcamp.org website,WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.”

We met up with people who are also creating websites from WordPress in Zimbabwe and in South Africa. There were exciting stories about some ‘developer’ who just learnt to develop websites with WordPress in just 24 hours in time for an internship interview. We also got the time to learn about best practices in developing and optimizing WordPress sites for optimal hosting.

To us the key highlight was a presentation on Search Optimisation rankings in Zimbabwe. The presenter was on point as he showed us practically how Zimbabwe developers and their clients do not take seriously search engine optimisation best practices. He noted that most clients do not even consider the services, once their website is designed with a nice looking interface, they are done.

It is imperative that at least a website should rank hire for Google search on you brand name, service or product. It is fun and surprising that some ‘big’ brands do not even rank hire for a search on their brand name.

We learnt that from then with our skills and what we gathered from the conference we are going as Quality Data Solution to learn more about Search Engine Optimization and make sure all our websites and blogs and also clients websites are fully optimized for search engines.

We hope our clients websites in the next 6 months will be ranking higher in Search Engines for their brands and  products. As we learn and grow in this area which is a branch on online marketing we will also offer the same services to other brands who are not in our catalog.

The idea of a website is for your brand, products and services to go out there and be seen with prospective clients. People use search engines to find products, services, stories and any other information they will be in need of for different reasons. If you are not found this way online then it will be huge task for you to participate and win in business in this information age.

As we approach 2017, we are doing all we can to make sure Search Engine Optimization in Zimbabwe also benefits our clients.

What is Search Engine Optimization?

SEO in Zimbabwe is not a subject that really shows it is taken seriously, for example you would find that when you search for a particular brand on Google search engine through their name, product or services they offer, you will not find them even among the top ten listings.

Optimising your website for search engines will lead to your products, services or brand being found on the top as people search on Google. That means a lot for business or engagement considering that most consumers in Zimbabwe and abroad are now online almost all the time and they now find product, services or what they are looking for through google.

Outsourcing is the default option for most organisations, but empowering your in house team with the knowledge will help you monitor your hired agencies and also bring a culture of wholesale intentional application of search engine optimization across the whole organisation. When this becomes a culture it then brings with it the multiplier effect where the bigger the numbers of qualitative search engine optimization, the better and the higher you rank and the more business and engagement you get.

You say you operate a business and you do not as yet have a website in this day and age, oh no that is strange. How can customers even know that you exist?

As much as you can place bill boards, brand your building, t shirts or cars, the question you should ask yourself is, is it the still the same way that successful business are generating interest to their brands in this day?

Now if you are to sit down and reviewing your strategies and realize that you are not making a dent in the market then it is high time you start considering having a website. It is now given that most people who are likely to be your customers spend most of their time online.

vicfallsInternet access has become available to a wider majority than before, it is now the go to platform for news, for information verification and for general communication.

Can you still be able to move around town and distribute your catalogs and flyers? And to do that daily? Obviously this will not be profitable. You need a presents online 24/7 where clients can have access to your catalog at their own cost and time.

Remember this and surely 2017 should not be the same for your business

“In this day and age, you’d think that a website would be item No. 1 on the to-do list of any entrepreneur with a brand-new company. A website lends an air of credibility — it lets people know that you’re serious and ready to do business. It’s a guaranteed sales booster and a whole lot less expensive than renting a retail space or buying ads. Without a website, how would people even know you exist?”

  1. So why should you have a website?
  2. It is always open, 24/7 and a client access at their cost.
  3. It is easy and cheap
  4. It will help you reach a bigger audience as it available globally
  5. It will boost sales of your products
  6. It will help you get into the minds of your audience and you will understand them better, with free feedback generated
  7. It will contribute in lead generation

The above 7 reasons should trigger an interest in you to engage us for your website, be it the first time or another attempt, this is the time to prepare for 2017 on a higher note. Please consider a website for your business.
