In such a digital driven age, it is essential businesses have a responsive website in order to grow successfully. Our affordable web design and development services create websites with simplicity at the core whilst maintaining an eye-catching visual appeal. Our team works to ensure these principles are evident throughout all work we complete.
We have built hundreds of websites from scratch throughout our time operating within this field. Each one is unique from the rest due to industry requirements or custom components from the client.
Our offices are based within London and the south east. Many of our clients reside within these areas and enjoy the freedom of being able to arrange in-person meetings, however we have customers and enquiries from businesses all across the UK and offer remote meetings to those who are located far from our operation centres.

Below are some of the problems we regularly solve for our customers:
Problem: Updates are troublesome (Lack of time to manage the site, shelf life of technology has expired, the supporting partnership has come to an end or refuses to support the technology any more).
Solution: Purpose built CMS. Fit for purpose. Point and click. Any change. Any time. CMS editing made simple.
Problem: User experience negatively impacted by poor design (Level of client dissatisfaction that is impacting lead generation, conversions or sales).
Solution: We review your competitors who are at the top of Google for your industry related searches. This provides us with insight as to what is performing well.

A high performing website takes strategic planning and execution. Each stage can throw up problems which need to be confronted in order for the site to perform well. Some of these issues may sound familiar?:
How would you like to...
We have fine-tuned and streamlined our affordable web design and development services to leave our clients delighted with a website that truly reflects the quality of their services. The Made Simple Media process includes:
We carry out research and competitor analysis of websites within your niche to help form a clear and successful plan of foundations.
We produce sitemaps and wireframes that create a clear structure of how the website will function and operate.
A collaborative process where we add your branding (logo/graphics/images/colour scheme).
Our front and back end developers help transition the design into an interactive stage with custom coding.
5. Web Content
Content, either produced in-house or by our copywriting team is added to pages throughout the website.
Before we hand it over, we undertake thorough and stringent testing of all website aspects.
Below we discuss our processes in greater detail so you can discover why each stage is key to achieving the end goal.
We deliver an initial consultation to gain your input and industry knowledge to help contribute to the creation of a website that reflects your business. This provides a great starting point for the project and the collaboration between both parties. The websites that we create for our clients follow three simple steps:
Planning it Right. Designing it Right. Building it Right.
But how do we do that exactly?
We produce sitemaps and wireframes to distinguish the location of all important pages and where specific elements belong on the page. We make sure there are enough pagetypes to grow the site further down the line with minimal development work from our end. We also explore the user journey to ensure a quick and smooth navigation for your users.
Once you’ve approved the sitemap and wireframes, we move onto the design stage - we’ll add your branding (logo/graphics images/colour scheme). Additionally, web content that resonates well with your audience may also be required. Our team can assist you with this stage.
Our front and back end developers help bring the idea to life. Normally, beginning with the home page first and once you’re happy we move onto the next pages.
The penultimate stage involves thorough testing where we use a range of browsers, devices and our website testing software. Finally, we are all set for the launch of your new website when your business is ready to go live.
Digital marketing of your business is paramount to online success and growth. All websites that we build are compliant and support marketing services such as SEO and social media marketing.
We have a specialist department for SEO, search engine optimisation; providing either a full campaign or regular consultancy for those requiring guidance with their digital strategy. Search engine marketing will drastically improve the quantity and quality of organic traffic to your website, in turn increasing leads, conversions and sales.
How do the websites that we design, develop and build boost SEO marketing?
Google crawls and indexes every open avenue of your website. A site that is structured well makes it easier for Google and other search engines to understand. Their goal is to return their users with the best results matching the search – numerous factors make up this algorithm including the website content and the website health. Google does not favour sites packed full of errors, often negatively impacting the rankings of multiple pages. Our affordable web design and development services deliver an end product that is strategically assembled to provide strong technical SEO foundations throughout, helping any optimised content thrive.
The websites our team builds are always user-centred, placing particular importance on a well-designed user interface. This can result in a 200% increase in conversion rates. Similarly, a better UX design can improve conversion rates by 400%.
We have successfully built websites across various industries including; jewellers, local news websites, garden machinery suppliers, digital marketing firms plus much more.
We welcome enquiries from all industries when it comes to creating a bespoke website that positively reflects your business.
