A promotion driven approach to web design, with future promotion designed in...
As digital marketing specialists, we understand the promotional needs of web sites, and we are fully geared up for the ongoing promotion of the websites we design.
Many web design and development companies will state that they will deliver a "search engine friendly" site, but we go beyond that: we start the design process by identifying the strategic aims for your website, and carry out any necessary market and keyword research to develop the site structure before moving onto the visual aspects of the design.
And once your website is built, we can carry out full search engine optimisation of the primary content pages and monitor and report on search performance.
Joomla or Wordpress Content Management Systems to put you in charge of your website
As standard we base all the websites we design on either the Joomla or Wordpress content management systems (CMS), which puts you in complete control of your site.
Joomla is a multi-award winning, non-proprietory and very highly featured Open Source content management system that can be used for everything from simple websites to complex corporate applications and e-commerce.
Joomla was voted Best Free CMS by CMS Critic People's Choice Awards every year from 2014 to 2018.
Content editing is web based through an easy-to-use secure back-office system, which means no knowledge of HTML is required for content creation or editing. You can add and update your own content quickly and easily - add press releases, new product information, company news etc to keep your site fresh and growing - all important factors for gaining and maintaining your ranking in the search engines.
There are a number of reasons that we have chosen Joomla! as our 1st Choice CMS:
- reliability and long term support
- easy to use administration interface
- flexible layout capability accommodates pretty much any web design scenario
- high level of standard features built-in, plus a range of over 8,000 third party plug-ins available to suit nearly every conceivable application, including e-commerce
Over recent years Wordpress has become the most popular website CMS in the world, both in its hosted and self-hosted forms.
Wordpress was originally created as a blogging platform, at which it excels, but it is also expandable through the use of 3rd party plugins to add additional functionality such as e-commerce.
If your strategy is predominantly blogging, then Wordpress is likely to be your preferred option.
Custom Template Designs
All the websites we build, Joomla or Wordpress are custom designed with their own templates (themes).
