Your Website Is Your Shop Front

More Website Visitors

Your business website is, in effect, your sales counter and shop front.

Think of the lengths shopkeepers, store owners and shop brands go to in creating attractive window displays so as to grab the attention of their customers as they pass by.

If the passerby happens to stop to look at the window display, they are more likely to enter the shop and buy something.

This analogy works perfectly for website and in a similar way you need a developer that can create pages that are visually appealing and contain well written content and relevant high resolution imagery.

If you have an existing site and you're not sure about the quality, we offer a Free Audit that will advise you accordingly. Apply here:

So, to summarise, your site will need to be readily found on the first page of Google for relevant keywords (or search terms).

One of the best forms of marketing and advertising is on the internet and through Search Engine Optimisation / SEO.

That is why all types of clever companies around the world invest heavily in Internet marketing and primarily Search Engine Optimisation.

Converting Your Customers

Increase Website Traffic

Your site's visitors need to be able to quickly learn about your services or products and be able to easily navigate to your contact details or easily make a purchase.

Also, when your prospective customer visits your site, they need to be encouraged to stick around longer than just a casual glance. Interesting and unique content, graphics and images should properly promote your services and products.

The success of your website is measured in the number of visitors who covert to sales leads or purchase products.

Business Website Design & Development

Professional Website Design

A high quality professional website plays a central role in your sales and marketing strategy.

It is therefore essential that you use the services of a professional, experienced and proven company.

You need the services of an agency with experience and professional knowledge who will draw on multiple skill sets including information architecture, marketing analytics, copy writing and graphic art as well as the technical development.

These talents then allow for the matching of the new site with your businesses requirements.

Website & CMS Maintenance

CMS Website Design

One of the key aspects of owning a website is updating the content.

The most attractive, well written sites lose their commercial power if they aren’t properly maintained.

When the information on your site is not regularly updated you can easily find that visitors lose interest and might even choose to not return.

While there is a initial investment in getting your site up and running and drawing in customers, you need to also consider how you will retain your existing clients.

Not only do you need to consider renewing and refreshing your site's content, chances are that there will also be some housekeeping to do along with periodic coding, security updates and improvements that need to be applied to your CMS.
These elements are not optional extras. They are critical updates.

We can provide you with a comprehensive maintenance package that ensures that your internet presence continues to meet its objectives.

Our packages can include content updates, blog writing, backups, vital security updates to help ward off hackers, data recovery and more.

What Are Your Prices?

Website Design Prices

With that said, we appreciate that you may want a rough idea of pricing and therefore we have created a series of special packages with affordable prices that may well work for you.

Check out our affordable package prices here.

It could also be that you need a custom project and therefore the costs vary according to the complexity of the tasks involved and the associated time-frames.

While we are committed to keeping our prices as affordable and low as possible, our clients understand that they are getting a high quality quality, professional solution and not some cheap ‘cowboy’ job that's going to damage their credibility.

Our target audience is customers that require a superior site aimed at generating significantly more traffic and sales. Our customers realise that extra costs are soon recovered, quickly becoming insignificant in the grand scheme.

Recently a client informed us that his business website had more than paid for itself in just 2 months!
