website design and website development

Responsive Website

Most visitors will likely view your website from a mobile phone. All our sites are what they call ‘responsive’. That is, they work perfectly no matter what device your visitors use – desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. It’s not just important to provide a great experience for your visitors, Google and other search engines demand a responsive site in order for the site to rank within their search results.

Imagery

A picture paints a thousand words. Your website needs stunning images. We can supply stock, royalty-free photos at no cost, or we can use your own photos. Optionally, we can arrange for a professional photographer to come to your premises to take high-quality images.

Copy Writing

You can supply the copy to include on your site and we will adjust it for best search engine optimisation. Alternatively, we can write basic copy for you. Optionally, we can engage with a professional copywriter.

Contact Form

Your website is advertising your business. Once you have visitors engaged, you want them to be able to contact you. All sites will come with a contact form for ease of engagement. It will be protected to ensure SPAM messages do not come through to you.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

You can have the best-looking website, but if no one can find it, what’s the point? Your site and all pages we create will be ‘search engine optimised’. That is, we’ll design and adapt them in such a way so that when a prospect enters certain keywords or phrases into Google (for example) your site will have a high chance of ranking. SEO needs to be regularly reviewed and adapted. If you take a monthly maintenance package from us, we will give you a monthly SEO report and look to adapt keywords based on actual visitor behaviour.

Cookie Compliance (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are a legal set of rules which protects all of our personal data. Having a website that could collect the personal information of your visitors needs to comply with the GDPR rules. One such rule is around ‘cookie compliance’. Cookies are small files that a website may install onto a visitor's browsing device. They can be used to track visitor behaviour and then, for example, show tailored adverts to that visitor. If cookies are in use, which they will likely be, you must give your visitors the option of not using cookies on your website. We will install software that allows for cookie opt-in and opt-out to help you comply with GDPR.

Privacy Policy

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are a legal set of rules which protects all of our personal data. If you collect any personal data from a visitor or customer, you need to have a privacy policy that explains to the customer how you use their personal data, how you protect it and how long you will retain it. We are not lawyers at Web X Design Studio but can supply a template privacy policy that covers most eventualities.

Social Media Linking

If you have a Facebook page, an Instagram account, a Twitter account etc. we will link your website through to all of your social media accounts.

Performance Tuning

If your website takes more than 3 seconds to display, half your potential visitors will disengage. We tune your website for rapid loading and will demonstrate the speed to you using industry-standard testing tools. Like responsiveness, time to load is an important factor for ranking high on search engines.

Security

Every day you will hear about security breaches on the internet. We will use best practice security measures and tools to ensure your site is highly protected from malicious activities.

Website Development Optional Services

Our quoted price includes many services as you can see above. We also offer many additional services. Not everyone will want these, so they are not included in the base quote.

During our initial scoping conversations we will ascertain whether any of these additional services are relevant to you. If they are, we will quote individually for each additional service. Our pricing is always transparent, so you will know exactly what you will receive from us and how much it will cost.

website photography services

Photography

You need to display your business in the best light, one reason why you are engaging with Web X Design. Stunning images and video will help keep visitors engaged and increase the chances of converting them into a customer. We can arrange for a professional photographer to visit your premises and take high-quality images and videos of your business, goods and services.

Copy Writing

Nobody likes reading poorly written and miss-spelt English. Our copywriting skills are generally good enough for most customers, but if you prefer professionally crafted copy, we can engage with a full-time copywriter.

Blog

Do you want to build an audience through blogging? Blogging is the act of creating content related to your line of business. It could be ‘how to’ articles, stories behind customer engagement, product reviews etc. Content that may not live on the main website, but which will draw visitors to your site. We can add a blog to any website. It will be set up so that you can easily add articles without having to engage Web X Design Studio, although we’d be happy to help with the articles.

Multi-Language

Does your site attract visitors from multiple countries? Or does it need to be read by visitors who do not have English as their native language? We can implement a multi-language website with as many languages as you desire. We will include machine translation as part of this service, or if you need perfect translation, we will engage with professional translators.

Style Guide

A style guide reflects your brand. It details the colours to use, the fonts for text, button styles and even things like how rounded you want the corners of boxes to be. It ensures consistency and precision throughout your website if followed 100%. If you already have a style guide, we will use that in your design and build. If not, we can work with you to generate a style guide.

Logo Design

A logo is one of the first things a visitor will see on your site. A simple design can say a lot about what you are as a business. If you do not already have a company logo, we can machine generate a logo, or we can engage with a professional logo designer for you.

Directory Listings

Your prospects don’t just stumble across your website. They will either search and find it in the search results, they will respond to an advert, or they will find it in a listings directory. The most common listings directory is ‘Google Business Profile’. We can add you to Google Business Profile, along with other directories that we think are appropriate for your line of business.

Search Analytics

Understanding how visitors are searching for your business, and those of your competitors is a key fundamental to help tune the search engine optimisation on your site. We will register your site with Google Analytics, Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools so that you can see how visitors find your site. If you take a maintenance package with us, we will use these analytics to tune the search engine optimisation every month.

Mailing List

Today, there are many ways for you to engage with your prospects and your customers, via social media or through more traditional means such as an email list. We can set up one or more mailing lists that give your customers the ability to opt-in and opt-out (yet another GDPR requirement). You’ll be supplied with tools to create great-looking emails to send to your lists.

Online Ads

You may find you need to advertise your business online. We can advise and set up advertising campaigns whether that be on Google, Facebook, Instagram or other places.

WhatsApp Contact

More and more customers want to engage via WhatsApp and other online messaging tools. If you desire this capability we can add WhatsApp and other messaging buttons to your site.
