There is an ancient Chinese proverb that says:

 

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”.

and in our fast-paced, technology-driven economy, this saying seems now more relevant than ever.

Whether it’s a web design, graphic design, digital marketing or search engine optimisation (SEO) that is needed for your business to flourish in 2017, the time to act is now!

 

Here are few reasons why we think the beginning of a New Year is an ideal time for Cardiff businesses to get their brand and online presence to the next level.

 

Fresh start

January might seem like a long and dark month but on the contrary, it’s a perfect time of the year to think about the future. Feeling refreshed and relaxed after well-deserved Christmas break, we tend to be better at creative thinking and find it easier to revise our goals and implement new strategies and ideas for the following 12 months.

It’s true that many people, who set up their New Year’s resolutions, often end up not being able to stick to them in a long term. One of the reasons why this happens is that for most of us, it’s difficult to make a real change in our lives and our habits without professional, external help, coaching or mentoring.

That’s why hiring a professional Cardiff web design company that shares their knowledge and expertise with customers, is important to make sure your fresh business idea is turned into reality.

As John Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono once said:

 

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”

Seasonal businesses

We understand that some business operate on a seasonal basis mainly. For majority of our Ibiza-based customers the peak falls during summer months, for our Cardiff website design customers, this peak can be any time between Easter holidays, start of the academic year and the period leading up to Christmas and New Year. Whatever season your business operates in, January is the perfect time to plan and prepare.

Let’s take our Ibiza customers for example. With the season running from May until September / October, having new ideas and projects implemented early in the year is crucial for the businesses to succeed, as many of tourists book their holidays and additional services in advance. Having a new website or marketing materials ready before the season kicks off allows the businesses to focus on serving their customer during the extremely busy peak months, rather than worrying about the administrative part of their business.

For newly established businesses timing is even more important. While new marketing materials can be designed within a matter of weeks, launching a new website from scratch and making sure it ranks high in Google search results requires a lot of time in advance. Normally it takes at least 3-6 months for the effects of search engine optimisation (SEO) to be noticeable. So if, for example, you are planning to launch a great business idea aimed at students that arrive to Cardiff every autumn, now is the time to talk to us about making it happen!

 

Brexit

With the UK Government aiming to start the European Union withdrawal process in March 2017 many people and businesses wonder what the real effects of Brexit will be in the years to come. Things might not change a lot at all or they can change significantly, with some businesses thriving while others being forced to lay off staff. That’s why in those time of economic and social uncertainty it’s a good time to think of a plan B and different scenarios. If you are currently employed but have always had a business idea in your mind, maybe now it’s the time to start working on it in your spare time. With the right expertise and advice you could have a healthy and prosperous business running within the next two years, just in time for the Brexit.

 

Rise in self employment

According to the Office for National Statistics the self employment in the UK is now higher than at any point in the last 40 years and accounts for 15% of the total workforce. With more and more people choosing to work for themselves, having a professionally designed website is more important than even, as it helps your business stand out from the crowd. And if one of your New Year resolutions is starting an entrepreneurial journey as a sole-trader or small business, stay assured that with right marketing, professional website and well executed SEO campaign you can easily compete against other, more established businesses in Cardiff area.

 

Website design more affordable than ever

For many families and small businesses January can be a tough month financially. After spending more money for Christmas presents and New Year sales than we had initially planned, getting a new website designed or investing into a search engine optimisation campaign might seem like the last thing on your mind. Luckily nowadays, digital marketing and design services are more affordable than ever and they don’t need to break the bank.
