There is much more to quality web design than formatting a few pictures and words into a page and uploading to a web server. To find out about what we can do and what might be relevant for your website, read through the Services described here... or if you'd prefer, just Contact Us with any questions you have. We are always happy to talk all things web!
From small pub teams to major sporting clubs we have packages to suit all budgets.
We will ensure that your site functions properly on all popular computers and devices to maximise its impact.
If your looking for customised e-commerce store within a content management system, our talented web designers will make your site look good and make it easy to use.
We can begin wherever you like.
We understand that you may be at the stage where you don't really know where to start or what you need. On the other hand, you might have very strong ideas about your look and feel, already have a domain name and are ready to roll with the development. Our goal is to deliver a process that is simple to work with and delivers results.Step by Step
First of all we generally start by having a chat over the phone. We get a very brief idea about what your business is about and where you are at in your website planning. We will ask you to have looked at some other websites that you both like and don’t like the look of to give us an idea
We are flexible. We can come to you, or if it's easier for you we can correspond entirely via Skype or phone call and email. At this stage we need to find out what your business is about, understand who your online customers will be, and get a feel for what you like and dislike in web design. We will have given you a list of things to think about before we meet so that we can gain as much insight into your business as possible.
During and following the meeting, we will develop the Website Strategy together. We work out what content will be needed for the site and how we are going to work together to deliver it. We take your future plans, existing branding and your budget into consideration and come up with a proposal for the website including a timescale, process chart and an estimate of the costs of delivering a website.
Generally we provide three draft design concepts for you to look at and consider. From there, one preferred concept is chosen and developed further through one or two more iterations before we agree on a final design. At this point, the estimate of costs is either confirmed, or revised.
This is the part where all the "technical stuff" happens, and we turn all the design work into an actual working website. You will be able to see the progress of your site online at various stages during the development process, on a dedicated test server. If there are any further design decisions to be made during the build, we can often show you different options on the test version of the site.
We are testing throughout the build process, but prior to launch, the website is tested on multiple devices (i.e. pc, mobile, tablet) using all popular browsing software. If your site has dynamic content and runs on a database, we can conduct closed multiple user testing to have transactions processed (this would occur if you have an online store, for example).
For sites running on a CMS, or where there are web files that can be maintained by you, we conduct training on how you can update your own site.
Your website goes live and is broadcast to the world!
Your site may have been developed using a CMS, or you may be very interested in tracking its progress using analytics. With all on-going maintenance and reporting, we will support you as much as you need us to.
We will advise you about future-proofing your website as we develop it, so when there is something that we think will benefit your business down the track we will let you know about it, and explain how we can implement into your website strategy.
As part of your strategy, we may have discussed and included some online marketing initiatives - we can help you execute those plans to promote your website further.
Every great website begins with a solid strategy and evolves according to a plan. Your Website Strategy is simply a plan to describe what your website is actually for.
Every business is unique, as are each of the websites we create. In order for us to give you the best possible website you could have, we need to understand who your customers are, and how they will engage with your business online - what information they will be able to get, what transactions they can perform, etc. Once we know this, we can plan for a Website that has the relevant content needed and persuades your customers to take the action that you desire.
Each client will require different levels of assistance when developing their Website Strategy. Some clients will place a lot of emphasis on Search Engine Optimisation. Others will focus on being able maintain and update the web content themselves, via a Content Management System.
For some clients, a redesign of an existing URL may be required, and other clients might want to add an email marketing campaign with statistical report follow up. Regardless of how much you already know about what you want from your website, we will assist and advise every step of the way and work with you to create a web presence that is exactly what your business needs.
Once a Strategic Plan for the site has been developed and an understanding of what Content has been established, we will develop a Proposal for the website. The Proposal will contain a description of the main features and functions of the website, and will also include a draft screenshot of how your website will look.
