Our style is for minimalist but smart looking websites with few if any sliding bits and pieces or shouty stuff to interfere with the message you're trying to get across. A site that will also load quickly before the visitor has got fed up with waiting and gone elsewhere.
The secret to good website design is 'not to make people think about the site' - you want them to think about what they'd like to buy from you - whether you have a product or service to sell.
You want the process to be simple, easy and convenient for them - in as few online clicks as possible.
We want people to 'buy' from the website we hand make for your business, and we'd like them to find the process so easy, that they come back for more.
What We Need From You
You know your business best so we ask you to write up the message you wish to convey on the web and we'll make it 'web friendly'.
Everyone has a different way they like to communicate so it is important that 'your message' isn't lost just because you're 'going digital'.
Photos - we're professional photographers and are happy to take photos for you or work with ones you provide.
content, content and more content.
logos and existing branding if you want to use it - digitally please
What You Get
We want you to be proud of your website.
A new, search engaging optimised, responsive (so it works across devices) website.
A contact form (if you'd like one).
Support to help you get the most out of your website when it's live.
Big photos and video
With faster web connections, photos can be larger - we'll optimise to ensure page speed is optimal and passes the Google speed tests.
We can also pull in video, so why not create a YouTube channel to upload your videos to? We'll then integrate them into your site.
Search engine optimisation (SEO), also known as website optimisation
What is search engine optimisation and why do I need it?
You may have the best looking website in your industry but unless people know it's there or can find it, it's like having the curtains closed on your shop window display.
Most website owners depend on their website being found by search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc) to allow their potential clients to find them.
It is therefore important that your website is optimised to enable these search engines to not only find your website, but analyse what is there, index all the pages you have and rank your website against your competitors' websites.
Optimised correctly, your website will compete well with your competitors' websites in the search engines.
So what works?
Some companies use 'quick fixes' or optimisation tricks - these may result in your website being banned from a search engine or ranked poorly.
What works is good research into your target market and development of key search terms and phrases, all utilised in a well designed, constructed and optimised website, ensuring better results for the searcher and qualified enquiries for you.
We optimise the websites we create for search terms that people looking for your 'product' (whether it be tourist accommodation or fine wine) might use. Every so often this process needs to be revisited as new websites get added to the search engines every day, and the search engines also alter the way they rank websites, changing the search result listings.
Search engine optimisation considers all these aspects and works to move your website up the listings for a particular search term or phrase.
If you already have a website
We are happy to talk with you to ascertain your target market and optimise your website. We will also re-publish it to the search engines and relevant directories. And what's more, we'll show you how to monitor your own website's performance and explain how to interpret your webstats (automatically collected information about your website's visitors).
