We’ve been privileged to put a number of them together over the years, from industries as diverse as non-profit to upmarket paint and flooring companies.
There’s a great book called ‘The Back of the Napkin’ and in it, the author recalls being asked to summarise what is necessary to create a great educational website.
The summary is that there are 3 pillars to web design: Brand, Content and Function.
Brand: What do we want people to remember or what will they remember after visiting the site?
Content: What do we want people to know and what do they want to know when visiting our website?
Function: What do people want to do and what do we want them to be able to do when visiting our website?
Brand elements are solved by design, content elements are solved by writers and authors, and function elements are solved by developers.
It’s such a great summary of how websites should be approached, it’s something we’ve followed ever since when it comes to putting together a website for our clients.
Whether you are looking for a single landing page design or an ongoing, multi-page website and content marketing platform, touch base with us on how we can help you.
We work with some of our clients on an ongoing, continuous improvement basis that empowers us to constantly improve the website based on feedback and data, but we also do stand-alone website design and development projects that help you get started in the digital space.
We predominantly work with WordPress and Elementor but we are capable of working with HTML and CSS websites. We also use WooCommmerce for online stores and e-commerce environments and can help you put together a store on Shopify if that’s something you prefer.
We have worked with heaps of clients who have found themselves ‘trapped’ in website hosting contracts in the past or held hostage by their previous website developer. It does occasionally happen and we don’t like to put you in a position where that could potentially happen to you.
For that reason, we help you choose a great website hosting service provider and help you set up the website hosting and email hosting package in your own business name, with your own login and passwords.
You are billed monthly, directly, by the hosting service provider (for example: Siteground, GoDaddy or Afrihost) and have full control over the website environment after we have finished creating and developing the website for you.
You will also purchase the SSL certificate (the little green lock on the browser window) directly through the website hosting service provider and pay the annual subscription fee for that directly.
