With the increased use of devices like smart phones and tablets, your website needs to look good as well as be functional.
A responsive web design changes the layout of your website depending on the device that it is being viewed on.
Even Google now gives better rankings to websites that are responsive (source).
All of my web designs are responsive as standard.
Looking to sell your products or services online? Need to accept payment directly from your website? Then you need an e-commerce website.
Payment processing, order processing, stock inventory, customer queries are just some of the things that you might need.
There are a plethora of solutions out there, but how do you choose which one best suits your needs?
My expertise can help you figure it out.
Over 35% of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress — as of 2020. WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that is free to use, which makes it so popular. Another reason for it's popularity is that it is very user friendly.
I have years of experience designing and developing WordPress websites (also known as WordPress Themes or WordPress Templates).
WordPress also makes it super easy if you want to add blog posts to your website.
Sometimes your project will require a custom Content Management System (CMS).
Maybe you want to store customer feedback/suggestions or want to allow people to upload files or other documents.
A custom CMS is built to work perfectly and seamlessly with your website's individual needs and functionality.
I have years of experience writing custom PHP applications for a range of different industries.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a vital part of any web design project.
SEO is all about getting your website to the top of search engine results, which is no easy task and can take a lot of time and effort.
Having SEO in mind from the beginning of your website design project can be of great benefit.
Every website needs their brand to stand out from the crowd.
There is more to designing a logo / brand than choosing nice colours and fonts.
Your brand needs to showcase who you are as a company, organisation or individual. It needs to be simple but memorable.
Let me help you make the right choice for your logo / brand.
These days social media is a huge part of getting your name out there.
Websites and apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat are all having a massive impact on the way people interact with products / services.
As well as having a website, in order to be truly successful, you also need to embrace social media.
I can help you navigate the ropes of Social Media Marketing.
In order for your website design to be visible on the internet you will need an internet address (also known as a domain name) and it will need to be hosted on a server (web hosting).
Choosing your domain name is usually straight forward but there are certain things that should be avoided.
Choosing a web hosting package is not as straight forward as you might think. Windows or Linux hosting? Do I need a database or not? How many email accounts can I have? Does it come with SSL (secure website)? The list goes on.
My experience of web hosting will come in very handy when choosing the perfect package for your business needs.
