WordPress web design

All of our websites are built using WordPress (and WooCommerce for ecommerce), the leading content management system (CMS) which powers over one-third of the top ten million websites in the world.

Our WordPress platform is perfect for small, medium and large websites, ecommerce stores of all sizes and bespoke web applications. With a WordPress website, you can add and edit the content yourself – saving you time, and providing you with the independence to do it all yourself!

Our process

A website design process is the foundation of your new website project and will determine the success of your business post-launch. Here’s how we get incredible results for our clients:

1

Discovery workshop

Arguably the most crucial step, as the workshop creates a roadmap for the entire project. During our website workshop, you’ll tell us your requirements, we’ll set goals, come up with a sitemap, and we’ll discuss your business inside out to ensure we understand your customers and processes. Overall, the site or system aims to increase revenue while lowering your costs.

2

Competitor & SEO research

We’ll look at successful trends, the psychology of getting visitors to click, your current website data and competitor website audits. Using this information, we’ll create an internal strategy of how to structure your website to position your bespoke WordPress website for success. Our research stage saves you costs down the line as your website will be SEO optimised for launch.

3

Bespoke design

Every project we work on is bespoke and started from scratch. During the bespoke design stage, we’ll create a style guide and mockups of the new site to give you an idea of how we envisage the website. The designs will utilise best practices and guidelines that will ensure that your website is easy to use and converts as many users into paying customers as possible.

4

Web development

Developing a WordPress or ecommerce website is a time-consuming but hugely important part of the project. The developer will use the designs to code the site so that it’s fast and secure, incorporating the latest technologies in the industries. The result is a fully functional website with working and tested features so that the website can go live and start promoting you online.

5

Training

WordPress is easy-to-use and there are plenty of tutorials on the internet, but we’ll train you and your team one-on-one to ensure that you’re a WordPress guru! Our training is structured to ensure that you walk away confident about editing and adding new content to your new website. Don’t fear, if you have any questions down the line, we’re on the other end of the phone.

6

Launch

An exciting phase: launch! The developed website will be rigorously tested and then set ‘live’ for the world to see and use. Our team will optimise the site further and will take care of submitting your new website to Google, as well as ensuring that there’s a smooth transition between your old site and the newly launched website. To ensure that your site is running smoothly, we’ll test again and again!

7

Support & maintenance

All of our websites are launched with 2 months of free support and maintenance. This ensures that you’re off to a good start and gives you an insight into our paid support and maintenance packages. We’ll take daily backups of your website, ensure that your WordPress platform and plugins are the latest version and will be on the other end of the phone if you need any help.

8

Ongoing improvements

Just because the website has launched it doesn’t mean that you should leave the site untouched for a few years! Our tools will show how users interact with your new site. With your users’ best interests at heart, we’ll analyse your website’s data and will use it to make modifications to ensure that your WordPress website is performing at its best – from a technical, visual and informational and point of view.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to build a website?

The length of time it takes to complete a WordPress web design project is dependent on the complexity of each website. A basic bespoke website can take between 3 and 5 weeks, while a more complicated e-commerce website could take between 5 and 10 weeks from start to finish.

For bespoke web applications or non-standard projects, please contact us.

How much does a bespoke WordPress website cost?

Every project we work on is unique, and so is its cost. We believe in fair pricing and set the project price based on the duration of the project, rather than how large your wallet is. Our guideline starting price for a bespoke WordPress website is £1,000. As for an online shop, read our article about how much an ecommerce website costs. We’re happy to split your cost into monthly payments.

Can you help with an existing website?

Yes! We work with many clients who come to us for new features, problem fixing or converting a static website to a WordPress website. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

How many pages can my website have?

We don’t limit or charge more based on the number of pages, articles or products your website will have. However, having more content (specifically, images) might mean that your website will need more web hosting storage.

We don't have any photos. What do we do?

If you don’t have any photos, we would strongly urge you to find a professional photographer. If this isn’t possible, then we can use a mix of free and paid stock photography on your new website.

Not sure which photographer to use? Get in touch.

I don't write. Can you write the content for me?

It’s always best if you tell the story from your point of view, as you know your business inside out. However, if you’re having trouble coming up with words (we’ve all been there!) then we can write your website content for you at our hourly rate.

Not sure how much text you’ll need? Talk to us.

Do you work with clients outside of Dorset / the UK?

Yes! A lot of our web design projects are from companies abroad. Thanks to modern technology, we have completed large projects for clients from all over the world – including Europe, North America, Asia and Africa.

Can I sell products on my website?

You’ll be able to sell products online as long as you let us know at the beginning of the project. We’re highly experienced in designing, building and optimising ecommerce stores utilising WooCommerce – WordPress’ ecommerce/online shop extension.
