Mike Slater OK

Hello. I'm Mike Slater. I launched this business in 1995 and developed *seren to run business websites and software application.

I have been programming computers since 1982 when my father bought a Dragon 32 home computer with 32kB hard storage - that's not quite enough hard disk storage these days to display this web page. Now I specialise in offering clients the best possible websites for their business or creative project.

OUR SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT

Our websites are fast

No-one has much patience online so we make sure our web servers are very responsive and we code client websites to be extremely fast. On good connections, our average client website currently download in:

 

2.56 seconds

 

OUR APPROACH

Fully responsive websites

All client websites we manage are fully "screen responsive" on all devices. Screen responsive means webpages using the same online address whether they are on desktop or mobile, but "respond" according to the screen size of the device. This ensures our client sites can be viewed easily on everything from the smallest phone to large TV screens.

 

OUR APPROACH

"Search ready" websites

There is no "secret" to search engine positioning;
1. Host your site on fast web servers with all the latest software updates
2. Use responsive design
3. "Content is King" and make sure you have relevant content
4. Encourage some high-quality inbound links from websites already well positioned on the search engines
5. Use social network platforms to promote your "brand" and
6. Work on page titles and descriptions.

We help all our clients in building a good search position. Some examples (among many) include position 1 on global search for "glass eyes", position 1 for "budapest property rentals" and position 6 for global search on "race arches", position 7 on "native american gifts" etc
