WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

It’s important that we get to know your business and your business goals first before we build the website that is just right for you. We have the expertise to build small, simple informational websites up to full scale e.commerce websites.

The websites that we build are fully content managed meaning that you are in full control of the changing/adding or deleting content from text, images and files. We can also integrate special features such as password protected admin areas so only people with access rights can view this part of the website. We provide full training on how to use your website and to develop it in the future.

We also cross browser test each website that we build making sure it works across all modern browsers such as Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. It’s important that we make your website fully accessible to your customers.

WordPress Development

We have years of experience developing WordPress websites for our clients, because we specialise in one content management system we can get it working perfectly for you. We have also developed a base theme we use to keep our costs low whilst providing an excellent website.

WordPress Plugin Development

Along with creating great websites we have also helped our clients with custom functionality for WordPress by building bespoke plugins. A couple of examples are plugins we have built is the Chocolate Panda site which uses MailPoet along with our custom plugin to feed content to users when they recieve a new email each week. Another example is an event calendar we have built for a customer who absolutely loves adding events to their website, the website has not launched yet, but stay tuned, it’s coming soon.

WordPress Site Speed Optimisation

We use Gtmetrix to test for site speed, we are not satisifed until we can easily get 95%+ on your homepage. We have reduced the speed of some sites by over 10 seconds. If a site is loading more than 3-4 seconds then you are losing customers, contact us to take a look to see if we can help with your WordPress installation.

WordPress Site Migration

If you are not happy with your current hosting provider we can help you move to a new host. We have moved plenty of WordPress sites with all sorts of functionality. If any errors do happen to crop up, then we can deal with them there and then as we have years of experience dealing with WordPress errors and bugs.

Responsive Website Development

Responsive development is fairly hot at the moment, if you take a look at this very website you can see that it looks great on all devices as we use media queries to detect device width and work the site from there. We don’t use any bloated frameworks or browser detection to do our responsive design as this is not future proof, we simply look at device width and make it look great.
