WEBSITE DESIGN

OUR AIM IS TO DESIGN YOU A WEBSITE THAT IS APPEALING AND INTUITIVE FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS AND EASY FOR YOU TO MAINTAIN. THAT WAY YOUR SITE WILL MAKE YOU MONEY AND SAVE YOU MONEY WHICH MAKES SENSE!

Building a website is like building a house. To get the best result you require an architect and a builder. When the creative and the technical work together you get the best results. You can’t have one without the other.

Internet users are impatient

You only get one chance to make a good impression and hook your potential customer. Remember that perception is reality and your website also speaks volumes about what kind of business you are.

A successful website should:

  • provide a positive user experience
  • be intuitive to use
  • be informative and present information logically
  • be visually appealing and ‘on brand’
  • work on all devices: Desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile

We have experience in designing and building all types of websites. From simple information based sites to large hub sites with high-end functionality.

WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

All our development is done in-house as we believe that the designer and developer have to work together to achieve the best result.

  • There is a huge scope with the functionality we can work into your site
  • Our websites are responsive which means they look great on all devices
  • We build them on an easy to use content management system which gives you ongoing control.

WORDPRESS

We develop our sites with WordPress. Over recent years it has become increasingly popular due to its flexibility and ease of use.

WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that has an easy-to-use interface. This means that when you need to update the content on your website you can do this yourself without incurring agency charges. WordPress is powerful and flexible too. It accommodates:

  • E-commerce
  • blogs
  • social media integration
  • image galleries
  • GPS location services
  • Google map integration

There are not many situations where WordPress is not the right choice.

E COMMERCE

We can help you grow your business online. We do this by designing and developing e-commerce sites that are visually appealing and easy to use. We have a strong focus on user experience making sure that your customers return. We have helped a variety of businesses ranging from small start-up business to established business with large product ranges.

We first establish who your target market is, your product range and backend requirements for stock control, pricing and reporting. We then design and build the right site for your needs, now and into the future.

Features include:

  • Store front with product overview and product detail
  • Shopping cart

RESPONSIVE WEBSITES

Responsive websites provide an optimal viewing experience on all devices. Desktop computers, Laptop computers, Tablets and Mobile phones. You have one website for all devices as it adapts to the size of the device being used.

You can’t understate the importance of responsive web design. The number of people accessing their digital content from mobile devices has grown exceptionally. If your website is not catering to the mobile user you are missing out! Your potential (and impatient) customers will find alternative websites that display well on their mobile device.

A recent study by Google showed that more than 80% of people never leave home without their smart phones, and they use them everywhere: At home, at work and even in stores as they decide which product to purchase. Mobile web usage has grown so much that you simply can’t afford to ignore it!

Mobile now accounts for 28% of all website traffic.

The break down of this mobile usage is:

  • Phone: 31.4 percent of mobile traffic
  • iPad: 15.6 percent of mobile traffic
  • Android Phones: 41.1 percent of mobile traffic
  • Android Tablets: 3.4 percent of mobile traffic

With new devices coming onto the market each year and the market shares diversifying it is critical that websites are responsive for mobile devices to avoid missing out on traffic and revenue.

The total percentage of mobile traffic continues to grow and is up 171% since 2011. It is predicted mobile traffic will equal desktop traffic by the end of 2015.*

Statistics from Walker Sands is a marketing and public relations company providing data-driven marketing information. The Walker Sands Quarterly Mobile Traffic Report is compiled by examining web analytics data across a wide range of B2B and B2C clients in multiple on line sectors. http://www.canberranet.com.au/articles/mobile-traffic-website-visits/

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

Getting your site on the first page of a Google search is a dark art. We have found that using a witch doctor, sacrificing chickens and bleeding the odd goat to the Google Gods yeilds good results but makes a mess of the studio. This is why we now lean to a more technical approach. This includes:

  • Finding out what the key word people are using to search for a business like yours
  • Ensuring this is in the optimum place for Google to index
  • Making sure your content is following best practice
  • Adding links to and from your site
  • If possible using a web address (URL) that clearly states what you do and what people search for.

Third party website integration

Sometimes the most cost effective and best developed solution is with a third party. Your business may need a cloud based software solution for the day-to-day running of your business. For most small business owners developing your own solution is just too expensive, a cost which you can never recoup. We can integrate your website a with third party.

For example: You are a hotel and need a booking engine. We would recommend ‘The Booking Button’ which has been developed to manage room inventory and link relevant on line booking engines such as booking.com. Our site can have your brand, image gallery, social media, room description, reviews etc but we then link to the third party.

It’s like building a house. You could build your kitchen from scratch or you can get a flat-pack kitchen and save.
