First impressions count. Your website is your shop window on the internet, so it’s critical that this represents your business the right way. A website is going to be a complete waste of time and money if it’s badly designed and hard to navigate, so you need to think of your website as a key investment in your business.
I’ll work with you to understand your business goals 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.
Your website 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.
The theme of your website 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.
A contact form will be included, making it easy for your prospects to get in touch. And an interactive Google map can also be displayed to help your customers locate you.
Navigating your website will be super-easy for your visitors. If they can quickly find the content they’re after, they’ll stay on your website for longer, increasing the likelihood of conversion.
More people now access the internet from mobile devices than desktop computers. Google also now works on a ‘mobile-first’ basis, so websites that aren’t optimised for mobile will be penalised, ranking lower in the search engine results.
I’ll make sure your website works perfectly on mobile and tablet as well as desktop, so your visitors can navigate your site equally well whichever device they’re using.
Your website will be designed with security in mind, using various techniques to make it as difficult as possible for anyone to hack your site.
A free SSL certificate comes as standard. This displays the padlock icon in the browser’s address bar when people visit your site, telling them that their connection to your site is secure.
SEO – Search Engine Optimisation – is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results, rather than using pay-per-click advertising.
There are many aspects to SEO, several of which relate to the way the website is designed. For instance, search engines such as Google need to be able to crawl and index your website without any issues or errors.
I’ll ensure that the design of your website is SEO friendly, optimised for Google and other search engines.
