A website shouldn’t just look nice.
We design and build hard-working, fully responsive WordPress websites that win our clients new business. All our sites are custom built to do exactly what you need.
Your website is the backbone of your business, supporting all of your digital marketing efforts and with just a few seconds to make a good impression it’s important to get it right.
We design and build custom websites using WordPress and don’t use off the shelf themes. A custom website is unique, not only in its functionality, but in how it displays a brand’s value proposition. You simply can’t do that with an off the shelf theme.
Phase 1: Strategy
We begin with a questionnaire to help us find out more about your organisation, products and services, business goals, customer demographics, competition, key challenges and more.
We then we perform a deep dive into your business, brand, the value that your products or services bring consumers, competitive advantages, details about your conversion funnels, and what core messaging will be needed. During this time conversations with important stakeholders like customers and employees at your company are essential.
We analyse our findings and document a plan to address the key challenges and support your business goals. This outlines the organisation of your site, how users will navigate it, the order of page content, and how users need to interact with the content.
We use this documentation to establish the project scope by identifying key pages, content blocks, page types, content needs, functionality, and technical requirements.
Phase 2: Design
Once we understand your objectives and your content then we can begin working on the design. We create a custom design from scratch to create the best user journey for your website visitors across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. This may include some initial basis wireframes followed by a full mockup of your homepage and other key pages and content blocks.
Phase 3: Development
Once the design has been approved we begin work on building your website using WordPress. We don’t shoe-horn your content into an off the shelf theme, we build you a website that is bespoke to meet your needs.
We give you the exact features and functions that you need with no bloat, making your website fast and efficient. We optimise your website at every step to ensure that it performs at its best.
Training and support
We build our websites so it is easy for our clients to add and edit even the most complex content. We also provide video tutorials on how to edit and add content within the website dashboard.
Even the best WordPress sites need looking after. We can provide maintenance and support for your WordPress site, keeping it up-to-date with the latest security and feature updates and monitoring its performance.
We take care of your website, so that you can concentrate on your business.
Why do you use WordPress?
There are many Content Management Systems (CMS) that can be used to develop websites but we have chosen WordPress for the following reasons:
It’s what we know best.
As a small team we believe in specialising in one thing and with over 10 years experience building websites with WordPress it makes sense for us to continue working with it while it fulfils the needs of our clients and our business.
It’s always evolving.
WordPress used to be a blogging platform but now it’s applications are limitless and includes E-commerce, membership sites, multi-sites, headless applications (where WordPress is used for the backend and another framework is used for the frontend) and multilingual sites. With the development of the new block editor WordPress is set to continue being at the forefront of web development.
We have many contacts in the WordPress community.
WordPress is supported by a robust community. These are people who have been contributing their support and ideas generously since its launch. We have many contacts in the WordPress community including other agencies who we can partner with to deliver more complex WordPress solutions.
How long does it take to have a website built?
A typical website will take 14 weeks at a minimum from start to launch. This includes 3 weeks strategy, 6 weeks design, 3 weeks initial development, and 2 weeks of modifications. It could take much longer if you wait until the end to start writing content.
This time could be longer depending on our availability to start the project which we would advise you of.
How much does a website cost?
Unfortunately there is no way to answer the question “how much does it cost to make a website?” with one single response, as each and every site is different. The cost will depend on the project scope and it is important that we take the time to fully understand what you need the new website to achieve. This often involves understanding some of your internal processes and systems so we can see where we can add value by streamlining and simplifying those processes.
Without proper planning your new website during the strategy phase, your other efforts won’t align and your business will not get a return on investment.
Once we fully understand your project scope we can give you a fixed price proposal.
