Increase the response from your visitors with a professionally designed, fully responsive website
Our web design Cornwall service puts your business at the forefront of your market and gives you the professional platform you need to increase visitors and sales. Including responsive web design as standard, we believe in delivering the very best value in our website packages.
Your website is your one stop shop for conveying everything about your company. It needs to deliver the right message, using the right tone, backed up with stunning design. We provide all elements of the process, bringing together a fantastic experience for your users, ultimately delivering more customers.
As with our design, we like to keep things clear and simple. No long lists of jargon of what we can do, just a clear focus on your business and its goals. No hidden extras, just packages designed to make you more money. And of course, the latest technology to ensure the longevity of your site.
Most websites are wrapped up within 2 weeks of starting, with some taking as little as a week. This gives you time to concentrate on running your business and moving it forward quickly, with professional marketing assets.
A beautiful website to showcase your business at its finest. Our brochure websites are fantastic for strengthening your brand and enticing new customers.
If you are looking to manage your own website content, or are looking to run a blogging/news feature on your site, our WordPress sites make a fantastic impression.
Everything you’d expect to start selling your products online. From stunning product placement to payment gateways and sales processes, we’ve got you covered.
We believe in doing things as they should be done, investing in staying on top of the latest technologies to make the service we provide as future-proof as possible.
Just one of the ways we achieve this is by offering responsive web design as standard – your finished web design will look great on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
As part of our web design and development process we look at your competitors to see what they are doing well and how your site can be better. We look both locally and nationally to get the best cross-section we can and really get a feel for your industry.
Take a look at some of our small business website examples over in our portfolio to see some of the businesses just like yours that we’ve already helped to move forward.
Everything we build has search engine optimisation in mind. From the code and the platform we use, through to the size of the images and more, we give your site a solid foundation to be able to rank well in search engines. Once your site has launched we can also give you advice on the on-going factors required to get your site noticed.
Already have a site you’re happy with? We can help you with your SEO on an existing site, giving you pointers on where you may be able to improve to bring in new visitors, and ultimately, new business.
We build stunning, responsive websites for both local and national businesses from our office in Callington. We cover a lot of businesses in Falmouth, St. Austell, Truro, Penzance and more, all across the Cornwall region.
As with all of our projects, the first thing we do is listen. To us, this is probably the most important part, to establish where you’re currently at, and what you need to achieve with a new website. This enables us to do what we do best – problem solving. We start the ideas flowing, and agree on a price and timeline.
Once underway, we build the first 2 or 3 pages of the site to establish an overall look and feel. This gives us enough of a grounding that you can see the direction in which things are going. Not only that, its early enough on in the project that if we need to work in an entirely different direction, we can do so.
After those initial ideas are signed off we then build the rest of the site, taking your content and turning it into something beautiful. The completed site will then be submitted to you for your approval and we will go through 2 rounds of amends to get things just right.
Once signed off, we then make the site live and go through several launch steps to make sure your new website gets the best start in life, including:
This is a question we get asked a lot, and in truth theres no definitive answer because every case is different. The main factors which affect the cost include size of size required, the complexity of functionality, level of design and source of content and images.
If you have all the content ready upfront and are quick to come back to us with feedback, we can be done in as little as 2-3 weeks. Typically though, most projects run 4-6 weeks.
A domain is the web address that identifies your website and can be typed directly into the browser. Most UK business websites end in either .co.uk or .com – ours is www.designersdownsouth.com.
To get a name you will have to purchase it from a domain registrar such as 123reg or GoDaddy. You can register them for up to ten years, with the minimum term being one year. Typically you will pay £10-£12 per year for a .com and £6-£8 per year for a .co.uk.
We recommend purchasing both the .co.uk and .com versions of your domain, if nothing else to stop your competitors buying the one you don’t register to attempt to steal your visitors and sales!
Hosting is the place where the files associated with your website live. Similarly to the domain this is an ongoing cost with most web hosting companies offering monthly and yearly rolling plans.
Depending on your website requirements you may need a special type of hosting – get in touch if you need any help.
Cash, Bank Transfer (preferred) and Cheque.
We take a 50% deposit up front to get the project booked in and started.
Once we work our way through the process, the final 50% will then be due before the website is made live.
To make things nice and simple we break everything down into text and images.
For the website text, for most projects we’ll ask you to supply all of it. This is to help keep costs down, and by default you know all the intricacies of your business that you want to talk about.
For images, we can either use the images you send us, or we have access to some fantastic image libraries that will do the job. Most projects end of being a mix of both.
If your website is on a content management system (such as WordPress), we’ll walk you through the basics when we handover the site. For ongoing updates, we’re always around if you have a quick question, and if the update is beyond your comfort zone, we have an easy flat rate to provide ongoing services.
As mentioned above, you will need to pay for hosting and keeping the domain registered on an ongoing basis. It’s also worth bearing in mind ongoing updates and maintenance, which we can help out with on a flat hourly fee.
You may also want to think about advertising costs such as Google AdWords and LinkedIn/Facebook ads, depending on where your target audience is.
Other related services which also help the site are Social Media Management and SEO.
As part of our web design Cornwall process, we put together a couple of pages early on the establish the look and feel of the site. It’s at this stage that we tweak until you’re happy, which makes sure we’re building the bulk of the site in a style which you’re proud to put your name to.
