- Web design is where digital architects create designs in a virtual world
Whilst social media is a formidable platform for making your mark in the world, there's no place like home and your own website is yours for you to own. It's where you will always be and can always be found. Social platforms may come and go in popularity and take your content with them. Your website is yours to keep. It's yours to express yourself, your business, your products or services. It puts you in the driving seat of creating your real estate on the web.
Whether you are planning a new website or looking to upgarde an existing one we can assit you with jargon free advice. We've seen too many people fall into traps of not owning their domain name, troublesome hosting companies that looked good when it said hosting from £1.99 per month but you then get stuck with expensive add-ons or inflated year 2 prices. Then you become stuck, potentially with a website that you can't move and also stopping you from moving on.
We welcome the chance to discuss your plans at an early stage if only to stop you becoming exposed to a trap being hidden by an attractive offer that you don't fully understand.

To this day it still amazes us why so many people build a site or hire a designer to build one for them and then go on to worry about the SEO later.
All of our new build sites have an SEO strategy as an integral part of the build. That's not to say that the SEO is complete. Regular monitoring of Google's webmaster tools will lead to reviews of the SEO implementation. Equally, your business model or focus may change and your site's SEO will then need updating accordingly.
