We love nothing more than designing and building effective websites for our customers. Whether you’re a one man band, or a medium size enterprise, we can give you a website that is well designed, search engine friendly and easy to manage and maintain.
Our website design services provide an all inclusive solution for businesses of all sizes. Built around WordPress, an open source website design solution, we create professional websites that are visually pleasing, functionally robust, and search engine friendly.
What is WordPress?
WordPress began life as a blogging platform but has evolved into one of the easiest to use, comprehensive content management systems (CMS) on the market. This means that websites can be designed and built quickly and effectively, it’s easy to manage and maintain, and comes with the latest coding so it’s super search engine friendly.
Unlike a lot of website builders (other CMS’ or websites built from scratch), WordPress is a lightweight CMS and gives you full control of your meta, content and URL structure with the ability to add sections pages and posts at will.
What Do Our Websites Come With?
Our website design process includes a customised WordPress theme – branded to your corporate style and guidelines, page creation (yes we’ll load your content!), relevant plugin installation, search engine optimization (SEO), social media integration, a blog, enquiry/contact forms, and if you need one – an e-commerce store too.
Once the website is built and live, SMEketing will install Google Analytics, create an XML sitemap and submit it to Google. We’ll can also set up an RSS feed subscription in FeedBurner if you want and integrate a newsletter subscription box. If you’re active on the main social networks (if you’re not, we can create these for you for an extra fee), we’ll integrate your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts to the site to give you a a fully functioning, social, SEO’d website.
We Don’t Charge For Updates
A lot of web design companies will charge you for updates, or make you pay a reoccurring monthly fee which includes a set amount of updates. We don’t like that. It’s your website, why should you pay if you see a typo, or want to add a new page?
What we do like is how easy WordPress is to use. We’ll show you how you can make your own updates – so you’re not relying on anyone else to do it for you. If you want to add or remove pages, you can easily do it yourself. If you can use Microsoft Word, then you can use WordPress. If you get into trouble then get back in touch with us for help and advice.
