The Right Tools For The Right Job
I can also build sites in Joomla or Wordpress. Different site requirements define the right tool to be used for the job. However, your site is built you can be sure that it will be easy to update and displays nicely on whatever platform it is using.
In addition to CMS website design, I'm an expert in Search Engine Optimisation making sure that once all the hard work has been done to get you up and running your site will be visible in the search engine results.
CMS Website Design
Using CMS website design gives you the following advantages:
1. Technologically Sound:
The advantages of using a proven system to power your site far outweigh the disadvantages of being left with custom code that can quickly become outdated. For all but the most demanding custom applications, we recommend using one of those two platforms to build your site.
2. Easy To Update:
WordPress and Joomla are two of the easiest systems to administrate. WordPress is an excellent workhorse for most sites and is equally good at publishing a lot of content in a short time or just having a few static pages that are infrequently updated.
WordPress is used by some of the biggest sites on the planet so don’t be fooled by its simplistic nature. It was originally designed as a blogging platform, but over the years more functionality has been added, and it is perfectly capable of powering large sites.
Joomla is more complicated to set up but what you get in return is a robust multi-author system with extensive user permissions.
Joomla is a good alternative to WordPress if you have many different users publishing content and you want to control which sections they can post to or how much control they have over their posting schedule.
3. User Friendly
WordPress is incredibly easy to use right out of the box and needs little administration to get up and running. Joomla requires setting up so that regular users don’t see all the configuration stuff which can make them blind to getting on with the job of publishing content.
Whichever system you choose we have the expertise to set it up to match your business requirements and make it look good.
We do things quickly here, using the latest Agile and Scrum techniques. We like to work in close cooperation with the customer, identifying the most important tasks to be completed and finishing them in short bursts or "sprints" - as you'll find out if you come and join us.
If you have an existing static HTML website that you would like to refresh, then my design team can offer you a makeover like no other!
It’s not always necessary to tear down the walls and start building from scratch. Sometimes a complete makeover of all the graphic design elements taken as a whole can produce the desired effect at a fraction of the cost of building a new website.
Remember - all the work I do is covered by my 100% money back guarantee.
Need something I haven't covered? Give me a call 07963 242210.
The cost of providing services that are essential to a new website design are built in, so there are no hidden extra charges once we have quoted for the job.
SEO (Search engine optimisation) is a whole different ball game, and if you want to make sales, you'll need traffic to do it.
Do you need an article or several articles written to compliment your site and grow your content? I can provide content optimised articles from £35 per article individually written by our in-house content team.
Do you need Facebook pages and Twitter accounts pro-actively managed? We can also manage your social media for you and keep it up to date.
If you would like help understanding Google Analytics, then we can set up your reports for you and point out the important key performance indicators.
Most importantly we can increase your conversion rate by studying statistics and making improvements to your site – either by improving the text readability or improving the graphics, the Call To Action or all three!
We are happy to help grow your business in the best way possible.
Regularly adding content to your blog is a sure-fire way of climbing the search engine rankings, but writing 500 words of content three times a week or even finding the subject matter to write about is not everyone’s cup of tea!
Fortunately, we are here to help!
We’ve written articles for lots of different subjects and having run sports betting websites and property sites – we know how much effort goes into creating a successful blog.
Building a blog that obtains a following is all about consistency. It is about picking a publishing schedule and sticking to it as well as providing your readers with the information they are seeking.
If you need content providing on a regular basis, then we can provide it for you and keep your blog sparkling with fresh content.
SEO & Keyword Research
Getting a site to rank for its keywords is one part of the equation, but the part that many people often miss is doing the keyword research in the first place to find the low lying fruit.
Keyword research is the most important part of building an internet business. You need to see how much competition you have for the keywords you want to elevate up the rankings.
Why? Because then you will get a good idea of the amount of time you will need to spend creating new content, gaining links and promoting your site to get anywhere near the first page.
If you are targeting relevant money keywords, then there is nothing wrong with that, as long as you are aware of the massive time investment you are going to have to make to get near the top.
If you have the google analytics code installed but don’t know where to start looking to make improvements, then we can help.
As mentioned in conversion rate optimisation the very first place to start looking at improving your bottom line is to take a look at your bounce rate.
Is your bounce rate over 60%?
Oh dear, you have a lot of work to do!
It’s quite common for sites to have a high bounce rate in the early days and to get it down to under the 40% mark is the first goal to achieve. You do this by adding more content, improving navigational items and custom graphics where required.
Google Analytics will give you a lot of information beyond the standard reports by customising the views. For example, you could design a view which would show you the bounce rate purely on mobile devices.
You could then compare to a desktop view and derive from that information that most people who use your site are mobile users and they don’t like the look of your site on a mobile device.
If you would like some help understanding where your visitors are coming from and how they are interacting with your site, then we can assist you with that.
Content Marketing & Social Media Strategy
Building an online presence takes lots of work. It’s not sufficient to add a few well-chosen keywords, obtain some links and then hope to achieve great rankings.
The competition is becoming harder and harder to beat. More site owners are putting dedicated resources into growing their blogs and social media presence. If you do nothing, you are not just standing still but falling behind at a rapid rate.
Your customers expect to find information that will help them use your products and services and you need to reassure potential clients that you know your subject matter.
Giving all the assistance you can to help people familiarise themselves with your company is what a good content and social media strategy will do.
How often you blog and update your social media channels depends on your product or service and your potential audience. Niche markets with few players don’t require nearly as much work to become well established in than the more hotly contested ones.
If you are just starting out, then I will provide you with everything you need to get going. I provide all the graphics you need to establish a social media presence and present your company professionally.
Four blog posts per month are enough to begin to build a rapport with your audience and start to understand the amount of work that it takes to make a successful blog.
For those that already have established websites and want to bring in more traffic posting twice a week and backing it up with social media is the way to go.
I can also fully manage your content marketing, social media and SEO campaigns.
Not everyone wants to be put into a “package” and customising a plan is the best option so talk to me, and we can tailor the best strategy for your business.
