Website design & development

Driven by marketing and business insights

Welcome to website design with a difference. With a strong background in marketing and consultancy for leading brands, I really understand what is required for an effective website and digital marketing strategy

Professional website design and developments

The websites I produce combine creative design with very effective navigation and user experience to deliver the right business results for you.

I design and develop websites using the flexible and robust WordPress content management platform, combined with an easy to use content editor to enable you to take control of your site's content.

I hope this page will give you more insight into things to consider for your potential new website, what the benefits are and what the process looks like.

If you like what you see or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. I love what I do, so I'm always happy to talk about it!

The components of a successful website

STRUCTURE & NAVIGATION

Beyond first impressions, your website structure and navigation is at the heart of a good user experience. Getting this right is essential for two main reasons:

A logical and useful site structure will encourage people to spend more time on your site and support better engagement with your brand

Well executed navigation will enable you to subtely promote key services or desired behaviours – a little like a retailer influences shoppers with their store layout and merchandising

TEXT CONTENT

What you say on your website is often left until last. But it is actually the most important element of a website.

After all, what’s the point of having a great looking website if visitors end up disappointed by the information it offers, or if the way it is written fails to accurately represent your brand ?

LOOK & FEEL

We all know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but we all still do it to a greater or lesser extent.

Choosing the right colour scheme, fonts and photography style is a vital creative step to achieving the right impression for you business or brand.

The look & feel of your website influences how potential customers perceive your business and is a vital part of their decision to do business with you.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

Search engines use complex formulas to decide how to rank your website pages. It’s all about how relevant your site is considered in relation to user searches and other competing websites.

Achieving good ranking is about researching and choosing the right keywords and implementing those throughout every element of the site. It gets a little technical but is something I specialise in, so let me know if I can help.
