Don’t let small changes to your website and the cost of getting them done hold your business back. If you need to change some details on your WordPress website, in response to the coronavirus outbreak and you’re not sure how to, just give us a shout below.
Free Small Business WordPress Support
If you are a company based in Sussex, with an annual turnover of less than £500,000 and you employ up to 30 people from the local area; you are eligible to apply for 2 hours of free WordPress support for small businesses. All of our standard policies and terms of service apply. You just don’t need to pay for it!
What You Need To Provide Us With?
We will just need a login for your WordPress site and info about the changes you want to make. Follow this link for guidance on creating another login for WordPress; for most requests we will need full Administrator level access to your website. Then see the form at the bottom of this post to request your 2 Hours of Free WordPress Support for Local Small Business in Sussex during COVID-19.
What WordPress Support Can You Get?
We have detailed below some of the most popular requests for changes to WordPress websites that we are seeing during the outbreak. We expect this to cover most of your needs right now, but don’t let that hold you back! If there is something you need doing on your WordPress site and it can be done within the 2 hours of free support; then we are here to help you.
Update Your Business Opening Times
If you do show your business opening times on your website and things have changed, it is important to let your customers know. If you are a bricks and mortar establishment, this will help to reduce wasted journeys and reduce the need for people to travel unnecessarily. If you are an office based business, people still need to know if your opening times have changed; again this will help to reduce wasted time and ensure people can access your services when they need them.
Google Maps Business Opening Hours
Don’t forget to update your Google Maps listing with your latest opening times in Google My Business. Give us a nudge if you need help with this too. We’ll just need to be given permission to make changes for you by adding us to your account; this can be done very easily and can also be removed again after the work is completed.
We’re Google Maps Street View Trusted!
Offering Local Delivery Service
Add a page to your site detailing a new delivery service you are offering. We could even include separate business times, a map showing your delivery radius and a form for people to place orders, if you don’t already have an eCommerce function on your website.
Change Your Website Contact Details
Have you started using a new or different telephone number, email address or video calling service in response to the coronavirus outbreak and need your website to reflect this? Let your clients know by updating the contacts page on your WordPress website.
Add Notifications To WordPress Website
Website notifications are a great way to show that you are reacting to and adjusting for the current times. This tells existing and potential customers that you are willing and able to serve them during this time (or not as the case may be).
WordPress Push Notifications
Adding the use of Browser Push Notifications to your WordPress site can be a great way to stay in touch with visitors and send them your latest news. Once they have signed up to your Website Push Updates, they will receive your pop up notifications on their device even when they are not visiting your website.
WordPress Banner Announcements
Just like our website you could add a drop down banner on every page to alert website visitors to your most recent important news and updates.
