Website Design, Maintentenance, and Repair

website design

Effective website design is one of the most informative ways to promote your product or service to the world. Your Website has the potential to help increase company profile and sales.

I am experienced in designing quality websites to suit the needs of my customers. I will take your business identity and incorporate it into your design. If you don’t have a business identity then I will give your site one that you are happy with

I base my designs on the information that you provide, the more the better. I require any information and guidelines (including images) on what you have in mind and some example sites (preferably from a different industry) and what you like/don’t like about them.

Good web design is not just about having a good looking site. It’s not about creating a work of art. It’s about creating a fully functioning machine that works on behalf of your business.

A well designed website will attract visitors, raise your company profile and give you the competitive edge you need to grow your business.

Too many businesses don’t appreciate the power and impact of having a well designed and well functioning website. A poorly designed website means you could be missing out on lots of opportunities every single day!

I’ll guide you through the process and make sure you get the most effective website for your business.

I will work with you to understand how a website would most benefit your company,

An attractive and professional web design is the key to attracting customers and keeping customers coming back to your website. On average a customer can decide if they like your website in as little as 3 seconds, so the first impression is extremely important. With my design service, I take time to learn about your business or idea and how it works so this is reflected in your web design.

If you already have a WordPress website do you know if your existing website is fully optimised for SEO – Search engine optimisation and organically ranking for all the major search engines ?

I can do a full website review and SEO – Search engine optimisation audit of your site where we see what the overall health of your website is. I take a look behind the pages and make a back-end check to see the sites structure, to see if the pages are set up correctly with correct page titles, tags, image alt text and we test your sites ‘loading’ speed .

Do the website pages have enough content including relevant search terms. What is the state of links to your site : Both incoming and out going.

Is your website linked and verified with both Google search console ( detects website errors /possible improvements ) and Google analytics ( tracks all movement on your site ).

Is your site optimised for the ever more important ‘Mobile’. *According to Google, more than 50 percent of all search queries now come via mobile devices and it’s growing by the day.

All these checks have a big say on your websites organic search engine ranking and therefore the number of potential visitors to your site.

SEO – Search engine optimisation is so important in gaining visitors organically and keeping them there without paying for traffic or Google Adwords for example.

You could have the most aesthetically pleasing website in the world but if it is not set up correctly and optimised it will not perform and climb the search engine rankings and bring in the visitors to your website and therefore potential customers.

If you have paid a fortune for a website and it is not delivering results then contact me for an informal chat and see how I can improve your website’s health, rankings and visitor experience through my website review.
You may have a website or I may be developing you a new website but once its launched how will your customers find out about you and know you are there, traditional advertising, PR, networking, referrals and word of mouth are all valuable tools for raising awareness of your business but add social media marketing to the mix and you have the ability to reach a far wider audience.

Social media can allow that word of mouth to rapidly spread via yours and your existing clients networks. It can also allow you to regularly remind your network that you are there and keep them updated with news and information. Social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin are some of the biggest social media platforms on the web but knowing which one will work the most effectively for your business can be difficult, I understand how best to use social media to reach out to new and current customers to meet your targets, brand awareness and generate more business or customers.

I can setup, configure and optimise social media profiles for clients as well as integrating these profiles into the website for further search engine optimisation benefits.

I can help with organic and targeted Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

What good is a nicely designed site if no one can find it? If you have a website that does not get very good results with the search engines then it’s probably because search engines were not taken into account in the initial design of the site. All web sites designed by me are search engine optimised to get the best possible rankings.

I can offer the same optimisation services to existing sites. Which I will do minimal effect on the design wherever possible.

I can not guarantee that you will get the top position for your keywords but I do promise that you will end up with greatly improved rankings.

Responsive Design Best Practices

Nowadays your website needs to look great and work well on a desktop, a tablet, and a smartphone’s browser. A responsive web design can help achieve this.

Remember the importance of responsive web design for your business. It helps you:

  • Increase reach to consumers on all devices
  • Maintain a consistent user experience which increases retention
  • Consolidate analytics, tracking, and reporting
  • Decrease time and cost on-site content management
  • Compete in your industry with other brands

Google drives 96% of mobile search traffic and recommends responsive design as a best practice. Because responsive web design is mobile-friendly, it helps increase visibility on search engines, which in turn can mean more visitors to your website.

More traffic results in better lead generation, added conversions and increased sales—three big reasons why you need a responsive web design!

The Future of Responsive Design for Mobile

I know that Google is requiring the following optimised elements for an effective mobile-friendly user experience using responsive web design:

The rise in mobile devices is only the beginning of a shift to more convenient web usage. It’s necessary to make sure your website can be viewed anywhere by your users on any device, as wearables such as smartwatches become more popular.

  • Text that is at a readable size, without the need for zooming
  • Content which fits a device’s screen, without the need for horizontal scrolling
  • Links & buttons which are adequately spaced out, so that tapping is not difficult
  • Reasonable load times for pages
