Tell us a bit about yourself
I’ve been a web designer for five years now, after studying Digital Media at university. I’ve worked for BT and also Designworks building websites, most recently specialising in high-end commercial property businesses.
What attracted you to this role?
Born and bred in Edinburgh, ESPC is such a recognisable brand with a strong reputation and having done a lot of property marketing in my previous role, it felt like the perfect choice.
Why is a strong digital presence so important?
Apart from creating a positive first impression, it’s the best way to reach and potentially widen your audience. It’s a great platform to be able to share your personality and build relationships with your users.
What are your top tips?
- First and foremost your website must deliver a strong message/call-to-action.
- Do you know what your USP is and is it clear? If your customer has to scroll to the bottom of your homepage to find out what you do, you have already lost them!
- Your navigation must be easy to understand and use for a first-time visitor, and your content needs to look great across different devices (like mobiles and tablets as well as your laptop).
Your digital presence is so important and to build this foundation you need to combine four key components – content, strategy, design and technology. According to some of our latest research, 93% of consumers, looking for their next house, use websites and online portals to start their search.
