24pillows aims to provide solutions that conform and adapt to the ever-changing web technologies.
There is a desperate need for vacation rental companies to have user-friendly & mobile friendly websites. We often use our smart phones to find accommodation places while traveling and usually one finds it a rather annoying experience, because most websites difficult to work with. Imagine you’re on the move and looking at websites with tiny text and tiny links and having to zoom and swipe just to find a phone number or email.
We bring decades of experience with modern technologies and ensure your brand is represented with eye catching designs and stable, future-proof standards in coding and search engine optimization.
Website Hosting and Website management is optional but highly recommended as this way we offer free updates and content additions, we monitor and resolve traffic issues, manage software updates,etc. This eliminates the risk of dealing with 3rd party hosts that have unstable hardware and infrastructure. It is better to have all your eggs in one basket – not several companies managing your web presence. Our hosting server is a managed and dedicated server on Afrihost’s backbone in Johannesburg so you can rest assured the hardware is monitored 24/7 by qualified technicians who also give 24/7 support.
Traffic analysis and Search Engine Optimization are on-going and we continually keep abreast with Google’s new algorithms and rules. We use organic optimization techniques and will never use ‘black hat’ sneaky techniques that result in ranking penalties. Websites are added to Google Analytics for monitoring and adjustment. We also add you to Google business and we put you on Google’s Radar which is very important in favorable ranking.
The face behind 24pillows is myself, Craig Van Rensburg. I am the , a tech nerd, code-a-holic , travel-holic and family man. I have spent lots of time traveling around South Africa to weird and wonderful places like the Karoo, Namaqualand, Battlefields, Tsitsikamma, Limpopo and everywhere in between. I graduated in digital arts at Graphic Horizons Training Institute in 1993 and have been developing websites before cell phones were out (Remember the days of Netscape and Yahoo?). Our offices are in picturesque Ramsgate on the beautiful coast of Kwazulu-Natal.
