When was the last time someone described your web site as amazing? We have site visitors who regularly describe Chertsey.Com as such. These are genuine unsolicited comments from real people. You may argue that your web site has to be functional and does not have to receive such accolades. Fair comment but I am sure you would prefer visitors to have a good impression of your company and your web site. This is also good business as you want your clients and potential customers to take you seriously. A shabby or poorly managed or constructed web site does not convey the message you want.
The next questions we would ask is how much in control of your site are you? Do you update it regularly using an easy to use Web CMS [Content Management System] It is quite possible that your web site design company did not create you site using a CMS and you have to use something like MS Frontpage. If this is the case we feel that you been short changed. is why.
