Made Simple Media is a state of the art web development agency specialising in delivering high performing, affordable and trendy websites for businesses of all sizes.
We understand that your website is the beating heart of your digital presence, a place that should reflect the quality of services available to your customers. Websites need to look appealing in order to impress visitors interested in your business - 38% of people say they will stop engaging with a website if the visual impact is unattractive.
Customers are best served with a website that is designed and developed with simplicity at the core whilst maintaining an eye-catching visual appeal. Our web development agency team works to ensure these principles are evident throughout all work we complete.
We have built hundreds of websites over time from the ground up, each one unique from the rest due to industry requirements or requested features from the client. Of these hundreds of businesses that have benefited from our web development agency, the majority reside in London and the South East but our services are available to all within the UK.

How would you like a web development agency to improve:
No one knows your business better than you, and we value your input and industry knowledge every step of the way.

We carry out research and competitor analysis of websites within your niche to help form a clear and successful plan of foundations.

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.
|6. Testing |
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 vital in achieving the end goal.
We deliver an initial consultation where we value your thoughts and input on each stage of the plan. This provides a great starting point for your project and the collaboration between our web development agency and yourselves. 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 you have enough pagetypes to grow the site in the future with minimal development work from our end.
We’ll add your branding (logo/graphics images/colour scheme). Additionally, web content that resonates well with your audience may also be additionally required. Our web design and development team can assist you with this process.
Our front and back end developers help bring the idea to life. Normally, building the home page first and gaining your seal of approval before moving onto the next pages.
These are the key components of the process, of course more parts may be necessary for larger projects such as user research, copywriting, or interactive prototypes.
Then, we move onto the testing stage 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.
As an experienced and professional web development agency, we implement the latest technologies to improve our services and the end result for our customers. This helps create websites that strongly represent your business and provide high levels of user experience - 95% of users state that a user-friendly website is the most important feature.
ConcreteCMS is the central pillar of our web development agency due to its powerful characteristics as a Content Management System (CMS). It comes packed with up to date code, running on very recent versions of PHP which provide the foundations for longevity and optimal performance.
Digital marketing of your business and website is key to achieving success. We ensure our clients websites are built to support marketing services such as SEO and social media marketing.
Our websites come in conjunction with SEO, search engine optimisation; either through a full campaign or on a consultancy basis for boosting your 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 will crawl and index every aspect of your website that is open to do so. A website with a strong structure makes it easier for Google and other search engines to understand. They want to return the best results to their users – multiple 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 web development agency delivers an end product that is assembled to provide strong technical SEO foundations throughout, helping any digital marketing campaigns thrive.
The websites our team at Made Simple Media build are 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%.
