Web Design

Web Designers in Tenerife

If you are looking for web design in Tenerife then drop me a line and I will help you locate the right person for the job. Before you do that, please consider what I have to say before you potentially waste your money trying to achieve the impossible.

Who am I?

First let me say – I don’t want your money!

I’m a workaholic and what I do now is purely a hobby, better than spending my retirement on candy crush or drinking myself stupid. The only income I get from my sites is  from Google Ads which pay for the upkeep of domain names and a private VPS server. The sites mentioned below are available for free advertising, personal pages will NOT have ads, and  any surplus profit from these will go to charity.

I was born in 1952, (I’ll let you do the math!) and have spent my entire adult life in computing, as a programmer, systems analyst, project manager for multi-million size companies and web designer specializing in SEO (search engine optimization).

What I want is to encourage you to think hard about what you want from a website before you start spending time and money. A website is only useful to you if one or more of the following apply:

  • You already have customers and you want to present a professional image.
  • You intend to get your clients from somewhere other than web searches, e.g. Facebook, word-of-mouth, online reviews.
  • You want people you are already in contact with to see the full information or book online.
  • You have easy ‘keywords’ to promote your business.

It  all comes down to SEO and it’s really important that you grasp this from the word go. So what do I mean by  easy keywords?

There are  tools you can use, provided by google, to research the words your customers might search for. Once you know these, you will need to research how many people (and where they are from) are going to search for these terms, and also the competition you are up against.

If you simply want to throw money at the problem, then go ahead and find your web designer first BUT make sure they are experienced in SEO and ask what this will cost you. Otherwise, do your own research  first. Many people offer web design, some very cheaply, but there is way more involved than making pretty pictures if you want to rank well in search engines like Google!

I will try not bore you  with too much detail, just one or two examples to help you make an informed decision before you waste money.

Numerically, ‘Tenerife’ is an easy keyword but ‘holidays’ is extremely difficult. So a web site designed around holidays in Tenerife will be very very hard to get top positions in google. Boat trips is also difficult – there is massive competition for ‘Tenerife Boat Trips’. On the other hand, ‘Tenerife Guided Walks’ is relatively easy, not so much competition.

‘Tenerife Removals’, Tenerife Plasterer’, again fairly easy, ‘Tenerife Builder’ not impossible, but not easy either. Expanding  the keywords you target with web design is important,  for example, ‘Builder in Golf del Sur’ is easier.

That should give you a very rough idea what you are up against and discussing this with your web designer will give you a feel for whether they know what they are talking about and whether getting a website is right for you. Hopefully, whatever you decide, you will go into it with realistic expectations.

I will be doing a few more web design tips on the lessons site, see below. This site is also available for free advertising if your  business involves learning or tuition of some sort.


Sites Available for Free Advertising

To all  you keyboard warriors and ‘nay-sayers’: When I say this is free, that’s exactly what it is. If you feel the need to try and disprove this then go ahead but it’s very sad that you can’t believe  that there are people in this world that are just happy to give  something back!

Tenerife Pages: This site is for any English-speaking small business in Tenerife

Holiday to Tenerife: As above for holiday related businesses

Holidays 4Us: Any holiday related activity – since I live in Tenerife this will be prominent.

Lessons 4All: Anything related to learning or something to do on holiday, eg learning to dive, swim, sail, surf, golf, fish, dance.

Tenerife Removals: This site is for sale and any proceeds will go to charity. It has top rankings in Google.

Portrait Corner: I no longer have any use for this site. It is free to a  good home. It is prominent for Dogs and Cats. I will help set up new pages and all I ask  is that you commit to promoting animal rescue and animal charities somewhere on the site.


Sites Available by Arrangement

These sites are available for free adverts under certain conditions. To advertise here you must write an informative article, with good content.. A link back to you website and/or Facebook page will be included.

Swim With Us: Anything swimming related.

Spirita Health and Fitness: Anything to do with health, fitness, diet etc.

Advantages of house sharing

Giz-a-Room Tenerife Group
Should you be thinking about when to rent a room or house sharing? Is it right for you?

The most obvious advantage of renting a room in a House share instead of having your own flat is that is costs much less. After all, you are only paying for a single room instead of a full property. House shares suit a tight budget as you get all the benefits for a cheaper price.

Especially when you are moving to a new life in Tenerife, it can get a bit lonely when you are living in your own flat. With roommates, you will never be alone and also will soon meet many new and exciting people. Your housemates can also show you the coolest spots in your new hometown and make you feel welcomed from the first day.

Useful advice for tenants from Janet Anscombe

“Sometimes prospective tenants are asked for a deposit of more than the equivalent of one month’s rent, but this is uncommon, and if you are prepared to consider it, make very sure that it is in fact for a refundable deposit, rather than a non-refundable agent’s administration or contract fee, which is a frequent charge when using a rental agent. It is important to determine the nature of all monies handed over, and for them to be specifically identified in the contract, along with the fact that they are refundable. Needless to say, you should get individual receipts for all monies handed over, whether deposit or monthly rental payments.”

Tenerife Boat Holiday

Whether you want to follow your dream diving full time, for example, or ring the changes with golf or fishing or simply keep it relaxed with excursions to suit the whole family, let us provide you with boat accommodation at Amarilla Golf with the freedom to mix and match your activities to suit or leave it till you get here. Excursions and activities are totally optional if you are looking to stay within a tight budget. 🙂

 

Why is it so cheap for a boat holiday?

The boat is for our own personal use and we do not have commercial licences. So please don’t ask if you can take the boat out. To do this would be 5 to 10 times the cost.

If your budget allows this, that’s great. If not, this is a fantastic alternative – live aboard and we arrange your trips with professional providers to suit you. …read more

What do Carpenters do?

Carpenters measure, cut, and shape wood, plastic, and other materials. Sometimes called Joiners, they construct and install building frameworks, including walls, floors, and door frames. Inspect and replace damaged framework or other structures and fixtures.

Carpentry and joinery are both construction trades. In its most simplest and traditional sense, joiners ‘join’ wood in a workshop, whereas carpenters construct the building elements on-site. Nowadays, correct or not, people tend to interchange Carpentry and Joinery.

Painters Decorators

Difference between a Painter and a Decorator?

A painter is responsible for painting the interior or exterior of buildings, while a decorator is responsible for the overall design and appearance of a space.

Is it worth getting a painter and decorator?

Even though this may seem a very obvious reason when it comes to painting and decorating, hiring a professional painter and decorator are most likely going to save you costs as it is a safe investment as they know what they are doing, and you will not have to buy the tools if you did the job yourself.

Plasterers

Looking for a plasterer in Tenerife?

Plasterers
We do not currently have listings in this category for Tenerife North

Plastering is usually done by the square meter so you may be able to get a quote online.  Always ask for examples of the work though.

Paying day rate is generally not a good idea.  Every man and hid dog that is a little bit handy thinks they can plaster but it’s highly specialised, especially when it comes to using the right products for Tenerife.

plasterer-tenerife

In dire need of a plasterer?

  • The main role of a plasterer is to paste layers of plaster onto walls, floors and ceilings.
  • As a plasterer, you apply different kinds of plaster to internal walls and ceilings so that they are ready for decorating.
  • You could also cover outside walls with coatings, such as sand and cement render or pebble-dash.

plasterer-in-tenerifeSounds simple doesn’t it?  Not so – here in Tenerife plasterers need an in depth knowledge of the climate and plastering products available.

Make a mistake, as many new-to-Tenerife plasterers do, and the job will be rushed because the plaster goes off too quick, botched because the plaster doesn’t set or cracks, or worse still, it looks great until next year when you need the whole lot re-plastering.

Don’t make these mistakes – make sure you use a plasterer who knows the way things work in Tenerife.
