Adding new or topical content to your site increases your visits from Google and other search engines.
We've developed a range of cost-effective systems so you can manage and add to your site - without needing to pay a web developer. From a simple news section to full eCommerce system design and integration, our expertise and experience will help you at every step.
Our web development services are all designed to go hand in hand with our web marketing plans, so you can grow your business and your website together.
Simple Content Management System (CMS)
Our easy to use systems allow you to :
- Edit text throughout the site, then update in real time via a simple web-based admin area.
- Format text with a 'palette' of visual features created to your specifications to fit the look of your site.
- Upload images - you can also position and resize them.
- Upload documents - brochures, spreadsheets and other useful documents for your clients to download.
- Create links within your site or to other sites.
More advanced features available include...
Adding a News section, Blog or Articles section
Create a news item in real time and update your site instantly (or create an item in advance and keep it hidden until you decide to make it live). The system automatically updates itself to create links to new 'live' items throughout the site.
Allow guests to comment on your updates. Encourage feedback and interaction and build an online community.
The site will notify you by email when there is something requiring your attention. You can pre-approve and edit all comments before displaying them on the site.
Organise your items into categories, and change the display order within these categories.
Adding a Gallery or Portfolio
Create your own Case Studies with images demonstrating your latest or best work. Combine this with testimonials or reviews to maximise sales impact.
Creating and Managing 'Information Snippets'
These will encourage people to click deeper into your site and stay on it longer. Examples include 'offer of the month', 'latest testimonial' or 'featured article'.
You can choose to display these randomly, or have them scheduled to run automatically, or turn them on and off throughout the site manually as you wish.
Adding a managed Product Catalogue
Keep an up to date list of your entire inventory online and you are open for business 24/7/365. Create and manage your own product options (e.g. size, colour, finish) so you can expand your online business into new areas instantly.
Add reviews and FAQs to turn your site into a virtual sales assistant. Search facilities will help your visitors find what they're looking for.
Custom enquiry and order forms with built-in spam protection mean you'll never miss a potential sale again.
Flag related products and offers to make sure you show as much of your inventory to potential buyers as quickly as possible.
Encourage site 'stickiness' and maximise repeat visits with competitions, surveys, and features such as 'My Wishlist' or 'Suggest to a Friend'.
All systems are search engine optimised as standard, to make sure that your site works as hard for you as possible.

Payment Gateway Provider integration - PayPal, WorldPay, HSBC, PayPoint (SecPay) etc.
Automatic stock level management with instant email notification.
