Affordable web design in Southend
First impressions count. Your website is your shop window on the internet, so it’s critical that this represents your Southend business the right way. A website will quickly become a waste of your time and money if it’s badly designed and hard to navigate, so you need to think in terms of your website being a key investment in your business.
I’ll work with you to understand your goals for your Southend business, and analyse your existing website (if you have one) before researching other websites in your industry or niche to identify what works and what doesn’t.
The website for your Southend business will be custom-built using WordPress, the software used to power over 40% of websites on the internet. If you’d like to find out more about WordPress, I’ve written an article about the 5 reasons why I use WordPress.
Your site will be designed to complement your company’s branding, using your logo and colour scheme. Unlike many web designers out there, I don’t use pre-designed templates.
An interactive Google map can be displayed to help your customers locate you, and a contact form will also be included, making it super easy for your prospects to get in touch.
Navigating your site will be really easy for your visitors. If they can find the content they’re after quickly, they’ll stay on your site for longer, increasing the likelihood of conversion.
As most people now access the internet from mobile devices rather than desktop computers, Google ranks sites on a ‘mobile-first’ basis, meaning those websites that aren’t optimised for mobile will be penalised, resulting in lower rankings in the search engine results.
I’ll enure your site works perfectly on desktop, tablet and mobile, so that your visitors can navigate your site equally well whatever device they’re using.
Your site will be designed with security in mind, and various techniques will be used to make it as difficult as possible for anyone to hack your site.
A free SSL certificate will be included as standard. This displays the padlock icon in the address bar of your browser when people visit your site, telling them that their connection to your website is secure.
SEO – or Search Engine Optimisation – is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your site through organic search engine results as opposed to pay-per-click advertising.
There are many parts to SEO, several of which relate to the way the site is designed. For instance, search engines such as Google need to be able to crawl and index your site with no issues or errors.
I’ll ensure that your site design is SEO friendly, optimised for Google, Bing and other search engines.
