website design

Design approach

Aimed at small businesses and startups, Pewsey Vale and beyond.

Websites need to work well on a multitude of devices today. No longer do we design for the average smallest monitor, nor do you need to have separate sites for mobile users - that just creates extra work in maintaining your site.

'Responsive web design' is the solution; creating styling for content which adapts the layout to suit the device. This is done by designing for smaller mobile devices first and then enhancing the styling for larger screens. This (along with other techniques) ensures fast load times for mobile devices, and also streamlines thinking about what content goes on the site at larger sizes - if it was unnecessary for a mobile user is the content really needed at all? Does it add real value?

Tailored design

All designs are custom created just for you - after an initial meeting to discuss your requirements, designs will be drawn up for discussion - amends can be made, or the design taken in a completely different direction. Once you're happy, a development copy of your actual website will be built so that you can see it before it goes 'live'.

Search engines

There are many ways to market your website: social media; mailing lists; advertising; Google ads and so on.

In addition, to ensure your website has the best chance of being found, it will be optimised for search engines; this means setting the site up in the way search engines recommend so they can find the info they need as quickly as possible - 'site maps', 'alt tags' and other appropriate 'meta-tags' are added.

However website marketing is a full-time job, out of the scope of my services. Prices for these services which guarantee search rankings vary from £50 to £500 per month, or even higher, alternatively it is something you can learn to do for your self and invest the time each month maintaining - all the tools to access Search Engine Optimisation features for your site will be readily available.

Website editing

Whether you blog or just update your text occasionally, being able to edit your site without having to pay someone for every little thing can add up.
