Website Design & Data Driven Optimisation

Creating a website is just the beginning of the journey.  Every decision that is made as the website is created has an impact.  It impacts on the users interaction with the website and that interaction can be measured. When we see the results we work on impoving them. So we do this…

  • Gather accurate data
  • Manage tracking codes
  • Respond to post launch data
  • Optimise for success

Your website is your platform to tell your story, to build trus and to provide your users with want they want.  When they do you succeed.

FAQ & Questions We Think You Might Have

How long have you been in business?

We have been in business for over 10 years. 

What industries do you specialise in?

We have worked with a number of vinyl record ecommerce businesses over the last  10 years, that's where we found our niche and we developed Magento based solutions for vinyl record stores and online vinyl record sellers. We have also worked with record labels and recording artists.  Now we work with companies from various sectors from retail to service based client services.

What sets you apart from other web design companies?

We build and optimise.  The growth of sales, contacts, leads is at the root of what we do.  That's the point right.  Every website has a purpose, a goal and that is what drives the process.

How do you approach the web design process?

We gather information, plan, discuss and produce inital drafts for review, we go through rounds of revisions, testing and development to get to the final website design and functionality. Then we focus on growth.

How do you approach UX user experience?

UX, user experience comes down to testing, we'll test it, you test it and when everyone's happy we put it live.

How do you approach responsive design?

Responsive design is at the core of every website build.  Ensuring a website works on all devices from mobile to widescreen is essential and we take care to make sure this is in place.

Do you have experience with ecommerce stores?

Ecommerce is where we started and it's something that we know how to do.  Creating ecommerce stores with product listings, shopping carts, payment gateways, shipping rates and calls to action is what we do.

What tools and technologies do you use for web design and development?

We use Magento, WordPress, Drupal & Shopify for our websites.  We host them on cloud based highly optimised servers which can include content delivery networks in the stack.  Our developers use PHP, CSS, jQuery, HTML and a tonne of other codebases and tools to create whatever features are needed to fit the business requirements.

Are your websites optimised for search engines?

This is at the root of what we do.  Every website is built with the idea of optimsing for search. We'll do keyword and comptetitor research before we start to build the website. Once up and running we will analyse the data and start building on what we have with various SEO techniques to outstrip the competition.

How do you ensure that websites are accessible to users with disabilities?

Accessibility is important and Google has a tool that will tell you if your website is accessible.  We use that to make sure that it passes.

Is your we web design custom or do you use templates?

The use of templates has now become the norm.  Much like the use of content management systems like WordPress had become the norm. To build these things from scratch is a bit like reinventing the wheel and would cost more than most clients could afford,  so, while we will use templates which makes development faster, every design will be customised to the point that it is unique.

Do you offer website maintenance post launch?

Yes, absolutely.  Once the website is live we will be available for fixes, new features and general maintenance.  Websites always need updates over time and we will provide the support for that.

Do you provide hosting and domain registration?

Yes, your website will be hosted on a dedicated cloud server that is fully managed.

Will I own the rights to my website and content?

Yes, copyright of the website and contents is transferred to you.

Will my website be secure?

Yes, we set up an SSL certificate for every website which ensures that connections to it are secure.  If you need more in terms of holding customers credit card details then we can do that too.

How do you measure the success of a web design project?

The success of a project comes in tangable results; sales, leads, conversions.   There's very little point creating a website without a long term goal or purpose, which will always be to drive conversions.  We will build the website with that in mind however that doesnot account for competitors so ongoing search engine optimisation, advertisting via paid search and other platforms such as facebook and linkedin will be essential to success.
