There are some web designers and programmers who will ask for content, assets and website maps and then disappear for a few weeks or months and then turn up again presenting you with a website which may or may not hit the brief. We have re-written the rule book here!
We believe that your website should be a true reflection of you and your business and that building a website - not unlike building your business - takes many twists and turns and the end result may be very different from what you originally thought or requested. We work collaboratively to show you the look and feel of the website as it is being built, so that you can feel part of it - and you are not just handed a screaming baby at the end of the process!
If you think of the best websites that you love to engage with they generally have a few things in common:
- Clear & Impactful Imagery. If you are buying something you are putting your faith in what you see being what you get - there is nothing worse than it looking like one thing and it turning up like another (McDonald's is a great example of this - however great it tastes it does not look like the pictures!). BrambleSky are event decor specialists - we designed their website around their imagery and it looks stunning.
- Engaging Content. Anyone who is moving house will spend ages trawling through Rightmove and Zoopla - they rely on having great content to encourage people to book viewings and request information on properties based on their content being more engaging than their competitors. Worsley Gin have designed their website not only around a stunning product with great imagery, but they also have compelling content on the story of their journey.
- Easy Navigation. Ever clicked on a website and it takes about ten minutes to find what you are actually looking for? There are a lot of websites that have prioritsed style over substance and may have fallen a bit too much in love with the power of what programming can achieve (we wont name names because that is mean)... Amazon however have this area nailed. Yes they have a busy website and it is not the most aesthetically pleasing, but it is the most easy to navigate, and the one click shopping experience sets them apart from competitors. Candy Blossoms is a wonderful chocolate bouquet business. There are a myriad of product options available with these types of products, yet we have made it simple with drop down menus and great product descriptions.
Get in touch with us if you would like to discuss your website. We promise not to bamboozle with jargon or be pretentious about programming. Just friendly, meaningful conversations about what you are looking to achieve with your online presence.
