Strategy & Planning
Before launching off the rocks, it’s important to check the conditions for opportunities and dangers. This process should involve reviewing marketing objectives and a little market research. From here, we can create a simple roadmap to refer to and keep the process on track.
Content Development & Optimisation
Content is key to a great website, you may already have a base to begin with. Once a sitemap has been developed, each page of the site will require text and media. It’s important to optimise these for local search results as well as ensuring good flow, easily accessible information and readability. SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is an important component of developing content. We’re experienced researching search trends and applying the findings to website content and setup to help people find your site.
Design & User Experience
Clean, spacious design helps draw people through the site. We can assist with developing or refining brand style – including logo, fonts, colours and general tone of voice. Once this is nailed down, we can set about creating the overall look and feel of the website. This will be combined with content and navigation, keeping in mind Search Engine Optimisation and user-flow. Importantly, the site will be optimised to work well on mobile, upwards of 70% of visitors will be on their phone.
