A good website may boost your income

Whether you’re a freelancer, entrepreneur, employee for a company, a good looking website can help you in two ways:

Easy to find on the internet

The important thing is that your website is visited by your potential customers. That’s why search engines like Google should be able to find you! Our websites are delivered with the necessary search criteria.

Easy to maintain

Your company is not static; it expands, offers new products or services, is eager to show your achievements...
This calls for a dynamic website. I produce websites made with WordPress™ so you can easily apply all changes.

Who wants a website?

Entrepreneurs, contractors and freelancers

No matter who your client is, he will always want to know what business you have and what you have already achieved. A good website, with a blog and nice photos, gives an instant overview. Supply a response form to it and the hurdles for new clients will become very low for allowing you a assignment!

Shops, webshops and groceries

News is the most important part of a website for these shops: Special offers, new products and unique selling points, they all need special attention. The challenge lies in displaying them properly and letting you update them yourself very easily. WordPress enables you to do this.

Ngo’s and religious institutions

Libraries, toy-libraries, religious institutions, district commissions, sports clubs, charity organizations et cetera; they all want to recruit new members, display their activities, schedule their members, perform administration duties and inform members and personnel - usually volunteers - about everything that considers the organization. This calls for a transparent and viable website, with shielded parts for committee members, employees and members.

Engineering agencies, architectural offices and consultancy firms

My ’roots’ were in a consultancy firm where a (good) website was most overlooked for a long time. Until more and more often we were informed that we could not be found on the internet. It turned out that even our regular customers compared several firms with each other on the internet.
After we built a new website, easily traceable for search engines like Google, many new customers found us.

Travelling agencies and people who let their chalets

Making on-line reservations is quite usual. The customer wants to be well informed about all ins and outs of a holiday resort and be able to make a financial estimation. A good website offers these possibilities so your customer can by this one-stop-shop make a fast transaction.

Education from elementary school to graduate school, tutoring and self-tuition

Whether it is a study or a self-tuition, the pupil (or its parents) will want to inform itself well in advance about the possibilities of the school or institute. The website must therefore list all the advantages as well as disadvantages and reviews of others.

In short, who does not want a website?!

Who doesn’t want a website? Preferably one that was tailor-made to his specific wishes, that looks good with the purpose to be seen by a lot of people. Furthermore a website must be easily maintainable:

  • Change, add or remove existing parts (texts, prices, photo’s)
  • Add new features
  • Change the layout of the pages
  • Without a need to assign the web-agent for each change - no unnecessary costs!

Features of a good website

Beautiful & modern design

Clear & accessible

With extra’s like news, reviews and login for members

Direct access to the helpdesk and faqs

Easily maintainable

Also usable on tablet and smartphone

This is how I do it

We discuss your wishes and ideas and together we make a first draft. I will develop this into a ’frame’, a blueprint for the new website.

You can study this frame on-line and give me your feed-back. You supply me with the texts and photo’s or I can make a proposal; each part (texts, photo’s, menu’s, etc.) may any time be easily changed thanks to the Content Management System (CMS) of WordPress.
When we agree about the setup, I will work it out and - after your consent - will put it on-line.

Now your website is ’live’!
Finally I will give you a personal instruction how to use WordPress and how to alter or remove the installed features, or add new ones by yourself. You will receive a concise digital manual provided with references Hiervan krijg je ook een beknopte digitale handleiding, voorzien van een aantal referenties (links to websites where you may learn more about certain subjects).

You’ll get a modern site with a professional design and layout.

Code

Easy to find

Search engines like Google know how to find your website!

Easy to maintain

You can easily alter parts of your website, remove them or add new items to it, all by yourself!

Your web-designer Arnold Crone

A highly skilled professional, Arnold Crone is a passionate and experienced web designer, developer, blogger and digital entrepreneur.

Started in the MSDOS-age Arnold has developed software using gwBasic, QuickBasic, VisualBasic, Delphi and since 2013 Web-based programs (PHP, Javascript, CSS, HTML), for acoustics and noise abatement, toy-libraries, school information systems and websites like the Marketing Planner (aka Project Planner) and Password Locker.

After his study of Technical Physics at the TU Eindhoven (Netherlands) Arnold has worked for 31 years as an acoustic specialist with a consultancy firm in Utrecht / Nieuwegein (see his profile at LinkedIn), where he wrote software for complex calculations that ran on microcomputers (the predecessor of the personal computer).

As municipalities, counties and other consultancy firms also needed this software, he made it into a marketable product. Since each computer brand had its own operating system (MSDOS didn't exist yet) he installed each program at the client's office. This gave him a nice opportunity to invest the specific wishes of the clients and corporate them into the next update.
