“It is generally accepted that businesses should spend 5% of their turnover on marketing if they want to stand still, and 10% if they are trying to grow.”

THE RIGHT AMOUNT TO SPEND?​

It will of course, depend on the size and nature of your business, as well as the sophistication of the website itself in terms of the technical elements needed. It also depends on how the website is positioned in terms of your overall marketing strategy. 

We know from Danitiestech Digital Health Index Q4 2018 that half of all Nigerian’s SMEs acknowledge the benefits of an online presence. In fact, 66% now have a website compared to 62% in October 2016. The gap is certainly decreasing with only 19% stating that they are not present online.

The 19% have no website or social media presence and therefore no way of engaging with Nigeria’s e-commerce market, which is forecast to grow to  $75 billion in revenues per annum by 2025, according to McKinsey  Report 2018.

Why is this so? Most say that there is simply ‘no need’ in their industry while others complain of a lack of expertise, finance or time.

Danitiestech are  here to help fill that gap, to provide relevant and up to date information for businesses in Nigeria that want to get online.

WHAT BUSINESS TYPE ARE YOU?

To give you an idea of how much you should budget, we have included a number of different business profiles and rough costs for those websites.

Reach Your Business Goals With A New Website

HOW TO GET STARTED

There are many essential steps involved in preparing to develop a new website for your business, from drawing up the brief to looking for quotes from web developers.

Do your Needs Analysis & Brief

The first thing to do when creating the brief for your website is to carry out a Needs Analysis. This is a detailed breakdown of what you need for the website, taking into account the unique needs of your business. It will form the basis for your brief and will ensure there is no room for misinterpretation by the web developer.

You should aim to include the following within this document: 

  • Your Business – Brief overview of the business such as length of time in business, products/services offered, staff numbers, etc.
  • Your Audience – Description of your target audiences and geographic markets
  • Your Objective – Outline business objective(s) that the site can help meet
  • Your Brand Vision – Detail the logos, images and visuals you will supply these or requirements for the Website Designer to provide
  • Design and content – List of the number of pages and type of content needed. Will you provide the content yourself or will you need the developer to source this work?
  • Technical – Functionality and technological requirements such as eCommerce PayPal/Stripe integration, social media integration, content management, log-in requirements, etc.
  • Support – Level of follow-up support needed.

Do your research

  1. Tap your network for names of agencies or developers and check out their reviews online
  2. List competitor websites or look for other websites that you like the style – It is always useful to have some examples of styles or approaches that you would like for your site
  3. Read up on latest consumer trends when it comes to online usage. For example, in Nigeria, smartphones have taken over as the device of choice for accessing e-commerce sites, generating 52% of traffic, while desktops accounted for 36% and 12% from tablets. This will be important to the layout and style of the website.

Have a budget in mind

This will allow you to focus your search efforts, and narrow down quotes received based on price. Select 2-3 web developers and send them the same brief to get comparable quotes. The reason many SMEs can get wildly varying quotes is that they don’t ask all companies for exactly the same thing.

Consider the maintenance and upkeep of the website. Do you have the necessary skills in-house to maintain the website? Is the Content Management System easy to navigate? Are you happy that you can troubleshoot any technical issues if they arise? If not, it may be worth looking at some form of support contract as part of the overall project.
