How do you improve your online presence?

  1. Research your competitors.

    Google is your most powerful tool when it comes to research, take five of your local competitors and visit their website.

  2. Figure out your budget.

    Website design and development can be costly, taking shortcuts will lead to a poorly built website. You need to look at your website as an investment after all if done correctly your online rankings and income can skyrocket.

    We suggest that you should not spend under £1,000 on a website, for a comparison we have listed all our prices on this page

  3. Find the right company.

    Unless you have good technical, design and SEO knowledge you should outsource the work to a credited design and development agency.

    Look at local search results, ask friends or business partners and make sure that your choice can provide you with a portfolio of work, we have helped many local businesses on the Isle Of Wight succeed with our Website design packages should you wish to find out more about how we could help you get in touch with us today

Website Design

The design of your website is the most important part, users should be able to find the information that they are looking for and not getting lost on other pages.

We always design a website with UX/UI in mind our websites have proven track records of increased sales and lead generation all due to the user’s experience.

SEO is also a big part of how a website should be designed, you need to ensure that the right content is in the correct place, call to actions should be sharp and quick nothing too heavy on the users eye.

Take the below website for an example, we ensured that the layout of the website maximised sales by using very simple trends, subtle call to actions, clean fonts and a clear navigation menu.
