No matter the requirements and visions of your project, our web development team are astute enough to adapt to any project they are presented with and unlock the hidden potential.
We recognise that the majority of business owners are not fluent in web development or web design.
Juggling everything surrounding your business can be a tiresome and taxing task. For those requiring a complex website that is outside their skill set, our web design and development company can embrace the responsibility and deliver expertise to enhance your online presence.
We ensure our web development company delivers on the following:
Here are some of the problems we regularly identify and 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: Unprofessional design (Level of client dissatisfaction that is impacting lead generation, conversions or sales).
Solution: We review your competitors to gain an insight on the websites performing well within your niche and use this information in conjunction with your requests to help create a design that is fit for purpose. Our web design and development company creates plans using flat, responsive modern techniques that follow the latest trends to stay ahead of the curve. We then wireframe the site, and only afterwards move to the following phase.
Websites are complex with a lot of room for error. From design to development to delivery, each stage needs to be perfect for the site to perform well. You may find some of these issues sound familiar?:
Our web design and development company aim to improve our clients:
No one knows your business better than you, and we value your input every step of the way.
Our web design and development company has fine-tuned and perfected the art of delivering websites that leave our clients delighted and importantly, truly reflecting 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.
|6. Testing |
Before we hand it over, we undertake thorough and stringent testing of all website aspects.
Below we discuss this thorough process in greater detail so you can understand exactly why we create websites the way we do and why it leaves our customers greatly satisfied.
We deliver an initial consultation where everything is on the table for discussion. This provides a great starting point for your project and the collaboration between our web development company team 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 it 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 also explore the user journey for your target audiences so your users are able to navigate the site quickly and smoothly.
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 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 central pillars of the process, of course more parts may be necessary for larger projects such as user research, copywriting, or interactive prototypes.
Once each stage is complete and is in line with the professional standards of our web development company, plus the client is happy, 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 design and development company, we enjoy using the latest technologies to improve our services and the end result for our customers.
ConcreteCMS is the cornerstone of our web development company due to its modern and powerful characteristics as a Content Management System (CMS). It is also equipped with up to date code, running on very recent versions of PHP which provide the foundations for longevity and optimal performance.
The websites we build meet the following:
You may have ideas for "phase 2" or "phase 3" after the initial build and almost anything is possible with a quality bespoke website build. Read more on why the service of our web development company is superior to a website builder: Why go for a bespoke website rather than using a website builder?
Online marketing of your business is key to achieving success through growing your audience numbers. We ensure our clients websites are SEO friendly and social media compliant, with outstanding results when supported by an adequate marketing budget.
Our web development services come in conjunction with SEO, search engine optimisation; either through a full campaign or on a consultancy basis for boosting your digital strategy. The ultimate aim of SEO is to elevate the quantity and quality of organic traffic to your website, in turn increasing leads, conversions and sales.
How do the websites that we design and build successfully boost SEO marketing?
Google will crawl and index every aspect of your website that is open to do so. A well designed and structured website makes it easier for Google and other search engines to understand. They all want to return the best results to their users – factors for this include the content and the website health. Google does not favour websites packed full of errors, often negatively impacting the rankings of multiple pages. To combat this, our web development company believes it is essential to deliver an end product that is assembled to provide strong technical SEO foundations throughout.
We have successfully built websites that are performing well across a wide array of industries including; jewellers, local news websites, garden machinery suppliers, digital marketing firms plus much more.
This reflects the adaptability of our web development company, with almost no industry niche being off limits when it comes to creating a bespoke website that positively reflects your business.
