Having a clean, fast loading, responsive site will draw more traffic and help convert sales.
Most business owners are unhappy with their current website design but fear it will cost too much to change it. The truth is, it is costing you a lot more to leave it as it is! Think about it. You use the internet for most things these days and so do your customers. If your site looks dated and doesn’t function properly you are not going to win business.
No time to lose!
Internet users make their minds up very quickly when they land on a website and if they don’t see what they want quickly or if the company looks old fashioned, they are gone!
Here at our studio, we will offer you some practical advice on how to improve or redesign your current website.
Would you like more visitors to your site?
Is your current website:
- Mobile responsive?
- Easy to navigate?
- Fast loading?
- Visually appealing?
- Search engine friendly?
- Projecting clear, concise messages?
- Projecting you as a leader in your field?
No? Then it is unlikely you will engage your potential customers. Contact us and we will go through what needs to be done.
Simplicity is the key. Good website design is vital when using the internet. The end user, your potential customer, wants the information they seek as quickly as possible. Therefore a clean, easy to navigate website is essential. Your site needs to be attractive but simple to use.
With over 30 years combined experience our website designers can create a site that will deliver on every level. Whether you need a landing page, amendments to an existing site, a brand refresh or a full ecommerce website, we will surpass your expectations.
Below are some of the things you should consider when having a new website. We can talk through them in more detail and check which will apply to you.
There will be no hidden costs to consider when building your website. You will be charged an annual fee for your domain and hosting. We charge £50 per year to host a standard five page website. Other host companies may charge more.
The domain name is the URL of the site. That is the one you type into the top bar of the search engine. You can buy it yourself or alternatively we can buy it for you. You just pay us to renew it each year on your behalf.
Over 60% of people now use their mobile phone to browse the internet so your website should be as seamless on mobile as it is on tablet, laptop and desktop. A responsive website has now become a necessity.
Hosting is the space that your website ‘sits’ in. It is charged annually according to the size of your site. Please ask for details.
There are many grey areas in website design and SEO. Too many people take advantage of that fact. Everything we do here at Mouse Media is transparent. We will talk you through all aspects of SEO and answer any questions you may have. Above all, we are interested in developing a good working relationship with you..
To ensure that the site is kept up to date and more popular with the search engines, we also offer a website maintenance package, please ask for details.
An ecommerce site is a site that sells products. It will need to be clear and easy to navigate with as little as three clicks from product to purchace. We all have short attention spans now, apparently, shorter than a goldfish!
Our approach is friendly, clear and simple. We do not blind you with science as we realise that this is not your field of expertise. Instead, we guide you to projecting your brand online and outline what is available to you.
With the covid restrictions, it isn’t always possible to meet. We now offer a telephone, Zoom or FaceTime call to establish the objective, deliverables and budget. Don’t worry if you don’t have a pre-conceived idea, that’s what the initial discussion is for.
We like to understand who we are designing for so don’t be surprised if we ask questions or research your company. We will also need to establish your target audience – we need to know who we are selling to!
Once we have talked through the initial ideas and/or brief, we will ask you to sign a web agreement. It states our terms, asks for basic details and determines dates for collection of information; first proof and second proof. We will also agree a go live date at this meeting.
We will send you a link to your first draft and ask for your thoughts. It may be that you want to change nothing, some, or all of the design. It is often better to have something in front of you to know what you do or don’t like. At this point you will make any amendments you see fit.
This process is repeated again and the amendments made.
Once you are happy with your site we can look to launch. Any amendments required after launch will be charged separately.
If you don’t quite know where to start, no problem! We will talk you through every step of the process to ensure you are 100% happy with the outcome. Jargon free help with ideas, wording and images. Our existing clients can tell you how we have helped them to achieve their goals. Why not book an appointent with us today?
