Creating simple, user friendly websites that help you do business.
Why do you need a (new) website?
Depending on the day, or the time of day you call us – we might be inclined to argue that you don’t need a website at all. There are still thousands of companies who do a lot of business through direct sales, making phone calls, word of mouth or simply because they are located in the right place.
Chance are that your business will be better off with a website, but the answer to the question – why do you need a website? can make a big difference to the budget you allocate to it and the amount you promote it.
We design and build websites. From online brochures, to microsites, to corporate blogs, to e-commerce sites and online stores, but we need to know what success looks like. We need to know – why you need a (new) website?

How we do Web Design.
Web Design is probably not the best description of what we do. The Website design part of our role is only part of a full service website management cosultancy that we offer clients. We do design, build, management, promotion and we can also look after hosting for you.
Not every project is the same. Here are some of the ways in which we work.
- Website design for individuals and home business (SOHO Web design)
- Website design for sports teams & athletes
- Web design for artists, authors and entertainers
- Websites for local businesses (real estate agents, car dealerships, accountants, builders)
- Web design for online businesses (pure-play start-ups and VC funded companies)
- Custom web projects for brands of any size.
Not every web design company is the same.
Every website we build includes a content management system (CMS). That means that you are in control of the content that you put onto your website. Anytime, and with the help of clever apps, any-place.
If you are paying some IT company to change the text on your homepage at an hourly rate, then it’s time to move on. If you are paying for your website by the number of pages it has, then it’s time for a change.
We use WordPress a lot. It’s simple, scalable, SEO friendly and looks great. Some of the biggest websites in the world use WordPress underneath. If you want to build your own WordPress site, then you can – for free. But like most things, if you pay for experts, then the results are going to be better.
We also use Joomla, Drupal, Magento and other well known website platforms, depending on what you need the website to do.
Having a website that no-one visits is like having a shop that no-one walks into. One of the most common answers to the question – why do you need a website is “so people can find me on Google”.
Just because your website looks good, doesn’t mean that your most important website visitors can read it. If Google and Bing and Yahoo don’t understand what your website is about, then neither will your customers.
All our websites come with SEO in mind from the start – which is one of the reasons we use WordPress.
This is not a technical exercise. In fact is is a branding exercise. A creative marketing exercise. A corporate communications exercise.
Even if you are a very big brand, your website might not be the first place that people find you. There are directories that try and put themselves between you and Google. Industry directories, local directories or just affiliate websites that are cashing in on your business.
We manage your whole web presence. Things like;
- How your brand appears in social media like Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook.
- How to use video on sites like YouTube or Vimeo to deliver multimedia experiences.
- How to promote your website through advertising – not just PPC or Google Adwords.
- What your site looks like on a mobile phone.
- Can your site be viewed correctly on an iPad?
