Nowadays, you need more than just word-of-mouth to grow and market your company; you need a website! This is especially important if you have a bricks-and-mortar business; in order to stay relevant against your competitors – some of whom will be online-only, without any overheads to worry about – you need an online presence.
Whether you just need basic website design, showing your mission statement, location and contact information, or something more complex to showcase your products, we can create a website tailored exactly to your needs.
WordPress Website Design
I have been using the WordPress platform to create custom websites since 2013. WordPress is a fantastic low-cost solution for business owners, bloggers, and just about anyone who wants a website. Regardless of the line of business you are in, the WordPress platform will have a solution for you. Once the site has been created, it can be managed and updated in-house, so there are no ongoing development costs. We prefer to work with child themes on the Genesis framework, which is secure, stable, and incredibly flexible, meaning your website is safe, strong, and the possibilities for customisation are almost limitless!
WordPress themes work just fine straight off-the-shelf, but in order have a memorable, professional online image, you’re going to need to customise your theme to stand out from the masses.
Have you already got a website, but you’re not happy with the theme or the design?
Maybe you’re running a blog using an out-of-the-box theme, but you’re not confident with using CSS and HTML to get it looking how you want?
Are you going through a rebrand and need to update your website to match your new image?
We can help! Website and blog customising is our jam.
All websites that we design are ‘mobile responsive’ which means they are dynamic and adjust to the size of the device they are being viewed on. So, your website will look will look great, whether it has been accessed from a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
This is absolutely vital; not just for creating a satisfying user-experience, but also for SEO!
Your website is often your digital first impression on the world. You want your message to be clear and memorable. Using your logo, specific business market sector and client demographic, we will create a website that represents your brand and appeals to your clients or readers.
Branding factors include things like:
- Colour scheme
- Images and photography
- Typography (fonts)
We will create a style sheet incorporating your branding elements, which will be used as a guide while creating your website for consistency.
If you already have text (AKA ‘copy’) explaining who you are, and what your company does, we can proof-read and edit to ensure it is clear and grammatically concise.
This will be especially useful if you have translated your text from another language.
We will happily train you, or your staff, to manage and maintain your website, and make simple changes and updates within the intuitive administration area of WordPress.
The only requirement is that the person (or people) we am training are already computer literate and have their own PC or laptop to work from.
Updating your WordPress website is a lot easier than you might think!
Once your website has been handed over, we can help with the following:
- Scheduled back-ups of your website
- Managing updates of WordPress themes and plugins
- Website performance reporting and analysis
- Assistance with email campaigns
If you need additional help and support to maintain your website, I will only be a phone call or email away from helping you solve whatever WordPress website-related issues you have.
