We started developing websites in the 1990s. The technology behind modern websites is evolving rapidly and we research techniques continuously to ensure we are able to deliver what you need for your business or personal use. Content Management Systems, such as Wordpress, enable us to create sites that separate design from content giving you the freedom to stay in control of the content. Once the site is built, you can choose whether you wish to manage the content yourself, or continue to engage our support.
Available for the design and development of websites for you or your business. Thanks to modern communications technology, we can create websites for clients throughout the Midlands, the UK, Europe and the world.
Requirements: We need to understand your requirements before we start - without this, you'll be pouring money down the drain. Do you have an existing site that needs a refresh, or is this a new site? What are your goals, what do you expect to achieve with the site? What branding do you need? What images do you have, or need, to grab the attention of the new site visitor? How can SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and Analytics help you understand how your site is being used? Is Social Media to be used? Do you have any e-Commerce/Shopping requirements?
Design: Let us help you design how the website will look, and how the 'User Experience' will make it easier for the new site visitor. How will the site look on widescreen, tablets and smartphones?
Build/Test/Deploy: We use the leading, industry-standard Content Management System, Wordpress, as the platform for robust, secure websites.
Hosting: We can host your website(s) on our reliable hosting platforms – or upload it to your own web host.
Please ask about our competitive fees. Depending upon the scope of the project, we can offer a daily rate or a fixed price for the job – and our websites are always guaranteed to work flawlessly in all popular web browsers and across multiple viewing devices.
