Website design is an increasingly important component of the modern marketing mix. When people visit your site, its look and feel has a great impact on how potential customers perceive your company and decide whether or not to engage with you, use your services or buy your products.
That’s why top technology, high performing, attractive, and easy to use websites that function across a range of browsers and devices are the hallmarks of our web design services. We will ensure that your website not only looks great, but is also easy to navigate, representative of your brand and optimised correctly to generate the most from your web traffic.
Careful planning goes into every website to ensure it is functional, engaging to your end user and fulfils the needs of your business. We start by assessing what you want your website to achieve, who your customers are and how they buy from you. We work with you to gather an outline of all content and features required and suggest the best way to organise the content into a site plan. We want to ensure that all site visitors can easily find the information they are looking for quickly and efficiently keeping them interested and engaged all the way through their visit. And we strive to make what can be a highly technical process jargon free and to keep you involved every step of the way.
To ensure maximum flexibility for your website, we build your site with a content management system. This enables authorised staff to add, edit and remove content and pages on the website without any technical knowledge, keeping your web content fresh and up to date at all times. We can provide training to key staff and will supply help sheets to explain and illustrate how to make the most common updates.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION
Being found by the right people is essential to any successful site, that’s why we offer search engine optimisation to drive traffic to your site. Our advanced SEO service can target certain keywords or markets and covers ‘on-page’ optimisation, link building and integrated social media channels.
The number of people accessing websites on mobile devices has increased significantly and has now overtaken desktop users as the primary means of accessing the Internet. We create a responsive design for your website that allows mobile users to view and download content more easily and quickly on mobile network connections.
BUDGET & TIMELINE
When we are confident we understand your requirements and before any work begins, we provide a detailed proposal with fixed prices. We provide timescales and a content checklist that will help you gather together the information needed on your side to get the job complete.
Once we have agreed the brief, we start the creative process. Using our extensive experience in building functional, engaging, professional, user-friendly websites we explore the best way to present your information to your target audience. Only once we are happy that we have considered all options will we present you with a range of design concepts. The designs are refined and updated, presented and re-presented until you are happy with the finished product.
Once the design has been approved we will start to create the site templates. Using our technical expertise, we incorporate best practice development techniques to ensure your site is compliant with current W3C web and accessibility standards. Prior to launching your website, we test it across different web environments to ensure universal browser and device compatibility. The site will be hosted on a test server where it can be reviewed by you throughout the process to ensure you are entirely happy with the results.
Once your website is live, we can offer other on-going services to keep your website working hard for you. From support and maintenance to traffic reporting and analytics, we want to ensure you keep a digital presence that meets your goals, engages your visitors and continues to reach new audiences for you.
