Wesite Design & Optimisation

Here’s the general process that we follow when creating a new website.  It starts with fact finding, designs and mock-ups.

Web Design

Fact finding, wireframes, templates and mock-ups

  • Establish purpose
  • Define Goals
  • Review Functionality
  • Create A Sitemap
  • Create Wireframes
  • Define an SEO Strategy
  • Create Mock-ups

First we establish the purpose of your website and the goals that you want to achieve, and what functionality we will need to include.

We then create a sitemap and sketch wireframes to illustrate how content and functionality will be laid out. To save time and we can use existing templates and provide a selection to choose from.

We define an SEO strategy, onsite and offsite along with a plan for ongoing search optimisation.

Next we create a mock-up of the website for you to review and sign off.  Then when you are happy with what you see we move onto the build.

Web Development

Implementing design, coding functionality.

  • Set Up Hosting
  • Install the CMS
  • Set Up Version Control
  • Install Plugins & Modules
  • Develop the Frontend
  • Apply Responsive Design
  • Populate Content 

We set up the hosting, create the initial website using the chosen CMS or ecommerce platform. We’ll select from WordPress, WooCommerce, Magento or Drupal.

We put the website under version control to track all our changes

We then build the frontend mobile responsive templates according to the design mock-ups so that the website works for all devices.

We populate the site with content and run rounds of design amends to make sure everything is as you want it.

Go Live

Training, hosting, documentation.

  • Google Analytics
  • Google Search
  • Documentation
  • SSL Certificate
  • Domain Update
  • Ongoing Maintenance
  • SEO Planning

Before launch we install tracking tools such as Google analytics, and submit the site to Google for indexing.

We provide documentation and assistance with managing the website so that you can add new content.

When everything is ready for the launch, we point your domain to the new website.

Then moving forward we can then provide ongoing maintenance, new features and SEO as your website grows.


Search Engine Optimisation

  • Custom SEO Strategy
  • Technical Site Audit
  • On Page Site Recommendations
  • Keyword Rankings
  • Competitor Research
  • Ongoing SEO Package

Creating a new website is great but it’s just the start.  Google will index the pages and you’ll be visible in search results but where will you be.  Probably not on page 1, or even page 2.  Getting there will take some work.

The purpose of your website is to get..

  • More Visitors
  • More Traffic
  • More Calls
  • More Sales
  • More Customers
  • More Revenue

There’s a lot of competition out there and your new website needs to out perform the competition to make that happen. 

Your website will have been built with that in mind.  That means great website design, fast page speed, quality and relevant content, strong website security, a healthy website structure and keyword rich content.

Then with an ongoing SEO package we can get to work on pushing your website up the  rankings and gaining the traffic that it is designed to pull in.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending”

“Plus 8 Digital assisted our in-house team with the re-launch of our Magento 2 records sales website. Richard at Plus 8 Digital coded the whole of the new website and a large portion of the Discogs integration. He is a very accomplished developer who can quickly understand requirements and program them to deliver the desired outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and Plus 8 Digital  to others with similar needs.”
