Website design and development
Your website is central to your digital marketing strategy. It’s not about the size of your business, the industry you work in, or even the demographic of your client base, your website needs to do more than represent what you do. It needs to be relevant, informative, engaging, authoritative, and encourage visitors to take the next step and make contact.
If your website is not doing these things at a minimum, it’s not worth the investment.
There are a few fundamentals to understand.
You should have clear goals
Knowing what you want your website to achieve for your business is important, we can help you develop achievable KPIs for easy performance tracking.
Google rankings will promote sites that are mobile optimised and fast to load
This means the back end needs to live up the front end. A great design or copy is only doing half the job.
Content is king
If you are not offering anything original, engaging, or of value to your viewers, they will bounce pretty quickly.
High conversion websites don’t just happen
You need a solid digital marketing strategy to ensure your content is search engine optimisation (SEO) compliant and attracting traffic, and you are actively targeting future customers.
Your website is an important asset
Like any asset, your website needs monitoring for effectiveness and to keep up to date with your competitors and the market.

Ecommerce has revolutionised the way companies in many industries do business today.
Businesses enjoy the lower costs involved, removal of geographical limitations, faster processing capability from shopping cart to customer, and the ability to follow up purchases with support or new offers. Consumers enjoy the convenience of being able to shop for goods and services online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere in the world.
There are many clear benefits for both business owners and customers, however an ecommerce site that is poorly executed can be detrimental to your product sales and your brand.
To ensure an optimal shopping experience online, it’s important to provide:
User experience (UX)
Customers expect a hassle-free, seamless shopping experience with flexible payment options – remember it’s the convenience that attracted them and will keep them coming back
Online transactions involve sharing of sensitive information that needs to be encrypted to ensure safe money exchanges between you and your customer. Ask us about:
- SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certification
- Payment Gateways to provide security and flexibility
Your ecommerce site must be able to handle peaks in load, for example to avoid crashing during a sale event
