Web design & promotion for universities
Does your internet presence accurately reflect the quality of your research and teaching?
As commercial pressure increases on Universities the competition for students, researchers and funding is becoming increasingly fierce. Students and researchers represent the largest section of internet users by far, yet very few universities and research groups exploit this medium to its full potential. The majority of University web sites have a distinctly "amateur" feel with no focus on promotion leaving a huge opportunity for the more forward thinking, commercially minded academic to establish a strong foothold.
A web site is a fantastic asset in terms of publicising your research, establishing your authority and attracting students and funds.
Study: White Rose Palaeobiology Group
This collaboration required a web site to promote their research, to advertise studentships and post-doctoral positions and to distribute lecture notes to undergraduates. The site boasted the number 1 ranking in Google for the keyword "palaeobiology" (among others!) and received over 500 unique visitors every week - not bad for a highly specialist field of research.

- publicise your research to a global audience
- establish your group as a leader in your field

Internal IT support nervous of external influences? Never fear - we work with your webmaster to bring your research to a global audience while you keep control of the editing process. Our work is often commissioned by people who can perform basic updates but who feel the look of their site is just not professional enough to do them justice.
Your target market is searching the web looking for your expertise right now - make sure you're accurately represented.
With over 16 years experience in academia, our Director Dr Simon Zipperlen combines first hand experience of the research environment with web site promotion and database development expertise. We are ideally placed to help you become a leader in a competetive marketplace. Don't let your rivals get there first!
