Following the proper process is the best way to ensure that both designer and client are happy with the final product. You can find out more about my process here.
Responsive Web Design
Smartphone and tablet sales have already surpassed traditional laptop and desktop sales (source) and soon they will become the most common way of browsing the web. I design sites that won’t scare users way and make it easier for mobile web visitors to browse and navigate your new site. See my blog post about responsive design here.
Although websites are best viewed on modern, standards compliant browsers such as Chrome or Firefox, there are still those who have to use Internet Explorer as they are on locked down computers or just don’t know better. My websites give a similar experience to visitors using almost any device including tablets and smart phones.
Beautiful & Unique Design
I create unique designs that reflect your business and its goals. Each project is tailored to your needs so you get what you want without being sold services you don’t require.
Quality as Standard
Many other design companies will charge you extra for things that I include as standard. This ensures that my clients get the best possible service for the best price. Some items included as standard are;
- -W3C standards compliant
- -Contact forms (a great way for your visitors to contact you!)
- -Site maps (help SEO and users)
- -Analytics by Google
- -Support by email or phone call
Hosting & Registration
Your new website and domains will hosted and registered through Blacknight.ie, an Irish company that provides an excellent service. I’ll do all the complicated setting-up for you so you don’t have to worry about it. Each website is securely hosted in an individual webspace so security compromises to other sites I host won’t affect yours.
SEO & Analytics
Search engine optimisation is about getting your website to the top of Google or Bing when a relevent search term is entered. Analytics can help hone this by giving important feedback about how your visitors use your site. Semantic code and thorough construction will ensure the best hope for your site to reach the top, stay there, and be found by the right people.
Mobile Web Design
If a responsive website does not suit your needs, I can build a dedicated mobile site optimised for handheld devices that matches your main website in style.
Newsletter Design & Signup
Send your customers or clients a periodic email newsletter to inform them of your latest offers or new services. I will create a HTML newsletter template that will match your site and a place on your site for visitors to sign up.
Stock photos can make a website look generic and boring while personal photos can reflect the personality of your business and make it stand out from the crowd.
I can do a lot of things, but I can’t get into your head and write the content for you, however I can check it and perhaps improve it before publishing online.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus are great ways to interact with your potential or existing customers. I can help you get the ball rolling by setting up accounts and showing you how to get the most out of them.
Custom Email Addresses
Having a fancy looking email address that matches the domain of your website (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) will help your new business look more professional than if you were to use your personal email account or a free online service such as @gmail.com @hotmail.com or @yahoo.com. I can set this up so you don’t have to change your email habits one bit, but it now appears like you have a whole IT department behind you!
