5 things you need for a great website
A great website is comprised of a combination of back-end and front-end functionality which ties in together to create the masterpiece that your potential clients and existing customers will be drawn to and see the beauty of the work you have to offer.
In order to make a website work to the desired level of functionality and also to provide the unique experience intended for the target audience, it is worth defining your needs and requirements prior to requesting a web development service.
If we want quality to be delivered to us, first we must define what we class as quality and create a brief of the various elements in our website that will serve to create the desired impact you need.
Whilst we can not define everything that you might require, we can definitely help you and prompt you to think about how to present your business in ways that that will appeal to your potential customers so together we can build a brief for the design and development team. This scoping stage is very much a collaboration between you and us. This is how the best websites are created…

4. Fast hosting, solid domains, with maintenance and security included.
In order to have an effective website, it must be easily accessible to all users. For this reason, good hosting is just essential. The web server that a good hosting provider will give you, should first and foremost be fast, include ample storage, and capabilities for easy maintenance. It needs to be secure, offer free SSL options and include regular updates for your specific website(s). These are all aspects We will take care of for you, so you can get on with running your business.
We will also help you choose the best domain name for your business. This is important so that you can be easily found on the web. We also provide various solutions for Email addresses that match your domain so you can maintain a consistent and professional Brand.
5. Optimal functionality and automation
Automation is an element of nature. Everything cannot be micromanaged or manually updated and relinked repeatedly, however websites can now be built with so many integrations and amazing software, that much of our work extends beyond so much more then just a website. Examples are all-in-one social media integrations, which sends one new post to any social media platforms you require it to, or ever popular cloud storage, making your files accessible from various devices. The list is endless when it comes to automation from CRM integration, which can be set triggers to send relevant marketing emails, to client surveys or low stock confirmations. So much can be accomplished, in your efforts to streamline your work.
Functionality, in this way, becomes a key element of any website. Users need quick, easy navigation, as well as a wow-factor. Your customers need answers for their questions asap. They need a reason to stay, so maintaining functionality and omitting any errors or issues and off course the host of Analytics tools that help monitor your website traffic and performance can all serve to increase your business success and website’s credibility. Don’t expect miracles overnight, its a marathon not a sprint but so worth it in the end…
