Did you know, regardless of your industry, a well-optimised website will increase brand awareness, expand your market and boost revenue? In today’s digital age, having a professional online presence is crucial for businesses to not only survive, but thrive. However, maintaining a website can come with a hefty price tag. But what if we told you that you can have a website and save money at the same time?

In this blog, we run through 4 quick and easy ways you can save money without sacrificing quality or functionality.

1. Backup solutions

Time is money – Did you know that According to Gartner, the average cost of IT downtime is £5,600 per minute? Because there are so many differences in how businesses operate, it can reach as high as £540,000 per hour. And that is where our backup solutions come in. By regularly backing up your website, we can ensure that any issues can be quickly and easily reverted, minimising downtime, and in-turn preventing any loss of business.

2. Optimisation is key

Optimising your website can not only save you money, but actually make you money in the long run. With attention spans getting shorter and shorter, having a website that loads quickly and runs smoothly is essential to keep potential customers engaged with your offerings. By focusing on website maintenance, ensuring your site is optimised with things like properly sized images and updated software, you can attract more sales by keeping those customers engaged with your site rather than competitors.

3. Savings in support

Your website is your digital shopfront. If something goes wrong and causes it to break, you are effectively open with an illuminated ‘closed’ sign hanging out front. The level of support we can offer our clients means they are never more than a phone call away from getting their website back open for business.

We don’t leave you scratching your head wondering which department to ring and putting you on hold for 15 minutes because you chose the wrong one. If you call up with an issue, the member of support staff who answered your call will be the one to resolve your issue.

Unlike some other providers who use artificial restrictions to sell additional services, we provide genuine support to help you overcome any issues without any unnecessary upselling.

4. Competitive pricing

An important step to saving money is ensuring you are getting the best deal possible in the long run. This applies to every aspect including website hosting, domain names and website maintenance just to name a few.

At Hipposerve, we offer competitive pricing to help you get the best deal possible on website hosting, domain names, and website maintenance. Our clients save more money over time with us compared to bigger companies that offer a “one-time deal.”

Get in touch

Our mission is to simplify the process of getting online and make it as easy and as cheap as possible for you. Plus, our friendly and approachable support team is here to guide you every step of the way.

Contact us today for a complimentary consultation service to help you choose the best hosting product for your specific needs. And if you’re already hosted elsewhere, no problem! We offer a hassle-free, bespoke website transfer service to help you move your site over to Hipposerve seamlessly.
