Designing Sites with WordPress
Website Design for small businesses
I design and build websites that work.
Website design has changed over the years, and as your site is a reflection of your business, you need to have a modern website which will give your clients confidence in your business.
We build websites using WordPress CMS as WordPress is the market leader in content management systems, is easy to configure for SEO and is responsive for mobile-friendly sites.
We are located near Nenagh, and most of our clients are from Tipperary and Limerick.
We also have clients from other areas of Ireland, some of which we have only communicated with through Skype and email.
If it is possible, We try to meet clients in person, as we think this is the best way to understand what the customer needs from their website.
Web Design Process
Using WordPress I create beautiful, responsive and functional online presences.
Web design companies, agencies and freelancers build their reputations on providing excellent service, while exceeding client expectations.
Every project that I take on is with attention to detail and a sense of pride in the completed work.
• I work quickly and are always available for communication.
• I meet with clients at my office in Tipperary or in their place of business.
• I can additionally talk on Skype if the clients are elsewhere in Ireland or the world.
• I usually build a sample front page on a domain which I own, so that the client can see if they want to hire me.
• I can build a wire-frame of the proposed website for clients who require this.
• I deliver projects on time and on a budget.
• I provide training on how to use the website.
• I provide support for the site for six months, at no additional cost.
Many customers require a web redesign. They are happy with their contents but the look and functionality of their site is not adequate.
I can redesign a website from a PhotoShop PSD file, which the client has purchased. I can also do a complete redesign for the customer.
A lot of older sites are not responsive. Unresponsiveness means that they do not function well on smartphones or tablets (not mobile friendly).
Every website that I build or redesign will be responsive, mobile friendly and I optimise for search engines and load speed.
I usually start with the client’s logo and branding, to get an idea of the colours, fonts and images that will work well on their website.
The typography of the site is also significant, as the fonts and text sizes are essential elements to convey a company’s message.
Each web page should be optimised for one or two keywords and have a strong call to action.
You need your website to be workable on all devices and all browsers. By using a responsive site design, the end user experiences a better result. Google reports that 61% of visitors will leave a website if they are not able to view it on a mobile device. Consequently, Google states that it considers a responsive web design to be the best solution.
With a responsive design, the same content is available to all users. The content stacks differently on different devices and screens. Responsive design works by using mobile CSS and media queries. These detect the screen size by preset break points and displays content accordingly.
Google estimates that viewers will leave a website if the website is slow to load. It seems that the crucial time is two seconds for a mobile device and 4 seconds for a desktop. As a result,
Site speed is a key consideration, when considering the site design.
