Hi, my name is Roberto Ciccolella,
I was born in Bari, Southern Italy and I moved to the U.K. in 1997.
I have over fifteen years of experience in website design and more recently started focusing on SEO, search engines optimisation. My knowledge that I have continued to develop within the web technology industry is put towards assisting the growth and succession of independent local businesses od small and medium sizes. My company name is CiaoWeb and you can visit my main site here
I believe that any business, no matter what industry can be benefited greatly by an effective website that is indexed by Google in local searches.

Online website builders can waste your precious time and money, just don't fall for cheap...
Today many independent business owners are looking to establish a presence online. There are many online website builders that invite you to build and develop your website yourself. Using these “point and click” website software can often waste your time and money; this is because you must accept the limited modules available making it difficult to get the exact layout or style you desire. You can magically build a nice looking website in less than one hour but... these online builders do not help you in the most important job: Making the site search engines friendly, there's no point on having an attractive website that is ignored by the search engines.
Furthermore, you must spend your own valuable time to learn how to use the website builder effectively. You can easily waste time and money in these situations while you could just relax and leave the website building to professionals who can listen to your needs and also suggest the best way to present your business online.
Just read what the Search Engine Journal has to say on page builders:
Serious Businesses Should Avoid Website Builders
There are simply too many drawbacks to using website builders.
I believe any serious business owner should avoid these platforms like the plague. A far better option is to choose an open-source platform like WordPress, which you can install yourself and find free or inexpensive themes if you’re on a tight budget, or you can hire a freelancer or agency to handle it all for you.
Any time, resources, and money you put into a simple website builder website will be wasted because you’ll have to start over when you’re ready to get serious about your online presence.
In the competitive industry of website design, I have created a unique package that allows me to stand out from the crowd by ensuring the essential requirements of the business owner are taken care of and more. My target is to offer an affordable web design deal to small local businesses.
I use WordPress (a content management system) to build your website which is superior to the online website builders. Google favours WordPress and this will assist with the Google ranking of your website. If you get listed on the first page of google on a local search you are more likely to get enquiries, it’s as simple as that.
Our support and assistance aim to allow your website to stand out from your competitors. This way, you will save yourself weeks of self-learning and frustrations from building your own website, allowing you the time to focus on other vital aspects of your business.
I understand that this is your website and pride ourselves on our ability to listen to your needs, work towards your exact requirements and the image that you want to achieve. Additionally, I provide you with basic marketing advice that will ensure your website is working as effective as it can be. I am confident that you will not find a similar offer with a personalised, centred approach at this affordable price elsewhere.
I am not promising you that you will get ranked on the first page of Google overnight, however, I can promise that I will do all that I can to help your website grow towards this. To achieve this there are many jobs that go on "behind the scenes", such as, adding your site to Google Search Console, Google Analytics, and more. In case in the field you operate the competition is fierce, you can talk with me for some personalised SEO plan, when I created CiaoWeb
my vision was to offer not only web design for small and medium businesses but also SEO and PPC, thus the new direction of my company as a digital agency.
If you operate a niche business where competitors are few, there is a greater chance that you will be listed on the first page of Google in just a few months or even weeks and yes no need to spend money on SEO... lucky you :-), In comparison if you operate a business with a high number of competitors, the necessity of a professional website powered by WordPress and a proper SEO strategy (I can do that for you, no worries :) will greatly help set you apart and boost the Google ranking of your website, the search engines optimisation of your website will make a difference.
Quality and support is where most of these online website builders fail, I have had many new clients who have been very disappointed by the poor support they were provided.
With me I can assure you that you are in good hands. Support is very important for me as I want to establish a rapport with you and be a part of the long-term growth of your business. If you are happy, that makes me happy and you are likely to stay with me for some time. Additionally, if you are satisfied with the support and efforts I provide your business, then you are more likely to introduce new clients to me which I will reward you for. It's the typical win-win situation :-)
A website should be considered an asset of the business as opposed to a mere overhead. The good news for you is that you don't need to break the bank to afford the cost of a pro-active, professional website.
I have created an affordable website design
package for all independent, local businesses that includes everything for just £100.00 every six months! If you do your math you will find that it works out at less than 55p a day, a small price to pay for a professional website that will tirelessly support your business 24/7.
Remember, a website is not only there to draw enquiries but also to inform your potential customers about you and the products or services you provide. A prospect visiting your site today can become an excellent customer tomorrow.
