Responsive Website Design

RESPONSIVE

WHY USE US FOR WEB DESIGN?

Having a successful website is not as simple as it looks.

A large percentage of the businesses we talk to have learnt this first-hand. 

Your website should be a fantastic investment. It should pay for itself over and over again from the business it generates. 

Unfortunately, due to bad planning and strategy, most business websites are seen as just an expense.

We can help you with your sales and marketing goals by being more strategic about the content on your website. We’ll also show you how to promote it once it’s live.

The websites we create are not just an expense, but a profitable investment.

“Having relevant and fresh content is the fuel that will make your website turn your browsers into buyers”

Website design coupled with a great user experience is essential.

Furthermore we pride ourselves on working closely with our customers to build websites that help to achieve their objectives not ours. This could be increased sales or simply providing information to existing or potential customers. In addition all our websites are built from scratch and include basic search engine optimisation in the price.

Our responsive websites adopt defined technology to ensure they are built for optimised viewing:

  • Pages load quickly
  • Easy to navigate
  • Access with ease
  • Simplified browsing

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH OUR WEBSITES ?

Responsive website design allows for a perfect view on any device. It will automatically adjust anything from the font size to picture size, giving any user a great experience. Each view is designed individually to achieve this.

This means that if required you can update the written content of the website without breaking the layout. Other options are available, although training will be required. However we are always available to add additional pages and alter page layouts if and when needed.

We will set up a Google account on your behalf and install Google Analytics onto to your website. This will enable you to track the amount of visitors and how they found you. This is an essential tool especially when used in conjunction with search engine optimisation techniques.

We will set up your Google Search Console. This has various tools included which are used to check that your website is indexed correctly.

It can also show if your website has been blocked or penalised by Google. This can also be used in association with our Search Engine Optimisation services.

As standard we will set up a sitemap. This is an electronic file which lists all the pages that are on your website. We then submit this to Google through your search console, helping Google to index your website correctly. We also use this to inform Google of any alterations to your website in the future.

WordPress Website Design

WORDPRESS WEB DESIGN SPECIALISTS

Just over one in four websites in the world are now built using WordPress. We find it one of the most flexible and cost effective platforms for any type of website.

  • WordPress is search engine friendly and automatically solves many search engine optimisation (SEO) issues.
  • WordPress is mobile friendly, smart phone and tablet usage is exploding. Your website needs to look great and work well on any device. If not your customers will skip your site and go somewhere else.

All our websites are custom built. We do not use templates and simply just change the colours and text as so many online companies, franchises or part time so call designers do.

TOP WEBSITE DESIGN TIPS

You need to plan exactly what you want a potential customer to do when they visit your website. Its imperative that you understand this as its the first and most important step to making your website a valuable asset.

What do you want your website visitors to do?

Here is a list of what we think should be the most obvious:

  • Telephone your business
  • Email your business
  • Subscribe to your mailing list
  • Request a callback
  • Download something
  • Book an appointment
  • Buy your product
  • Understand your service
  • Stay for a while

GETTING A RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT SHOULD BE YOUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.

YOUR WEBSITE MUST BE FULLY RESPONSIVE WHY?

A responsive website is now an absolute necessity if you want to reach your full market and is critical for the growth of your business. If you haven’t already got a responsive website you need to get on top of it right now. Google now ranks websites on a mobile first basis even if you are a B2B business and all your searches are on a desktop.

A responsive website needs to be able to adapt to be viewed any number of different devices including tablets and smart phones, if not your business website could see a meaningful drop in search engine rankings.

Viewing a website from a PC is entirely different to the view on the reduced screen size of a tablet or smart phone, with slower connection speeds when out on mobile networks. Website speed is going to be a major ranking factor in 2018. Ask about AMP pages!

Responsive Website Design

Why You Should Not Have a Separate Mobile Website
Its now not good enough to have a separate mobile website it needs to be responsive, having a separate mobile website is now a no no. This is because Google’s algorithm is now ranking mobile first. Even if you are a strong business to business company with most of your website interactions on a desktop if its not responsive your ranking will drop.

You can test your website responsiveness with Google’s handy little tool here.

TIPS THAT MANY WEB DESIGNERS FORGET TO IMPLEMENT.

  • Make sure your telephone number is clickable on smart phones.
  • Divide your website into sections based on your products or services
  • Keep your email forms short, less is more. No one likes filling in forms.
  • Give them something for FREE. Newsletter, fact sheet, brochure, voucher, consultation or some FREE TIPS for example
