Leicester Businesses Set to Thrive with Cutting Edge Web Design

Now that the internet has been around for a few decades, even the most conservative among us must agree that a great website is a business essential. Your website presents your products and services to a world full of potential customers. For small and medium sized businesses in Leicestershire, now is the ideal time to invest in a revamped professionally designed website. Here's why.

Back in 2012, Leicestershire Statistics and Research conducted a survey of local businesses. Only 23% of businesses said that they thought trading conditions would improve in the subsequent twelve months. However, in the few years since that survey Leicestershire has rapidly transformed into a tourist destination. Thanks to the recent burial of Richard III at Leicester Cathedral, Leicester's down-to-earth atmosphere and unique attractions are no longer a local secret.

Businesses working in the hospitality and service sectors across the county are certainly benefitting. According to a 2015 report by Focus Consultants, the upsurge in tourist spending was worth £54m, with an estimated 800,000 extra visitors. Visitor numbers at local museums and historical sites have also increased significantly, and hotel revenue increased by 5%, showing that tourists are not just coming for the day. Retailers, accommodation services, food services, and arts and entertainment are all doing well. Wouldn't it be great if your business could tap into the tourist 'dollar' too? With a slick, functional, and search engine optimised website that draws in customers even before they arrive, that dream can become a reality.
