    Frequently asked questions

    The term web design is used to describe how the frontend of a website looks and feels. It is a combination of the UX and UI work, website layout, images or graphics used and the copy. Great web design will encourage the user to complete ‘goals’ by guiding you through its pages and inspire you to engage with a call-to-action (CTA).

    WordPress is a free-to-use, open-source website creation platform. Or in more technical terms, WordPress is a content management system (CMS) written in PHP that uses a MySQL database.
    WordPress is one of the most popular website builders on the market, with over 37% of all websites being run on its platform.

    Essentially, responsive web design refers to how well your website is optimised for mobile, tablet and desktop usage collectively. Nowadays, your website needs to be easy to navigate right across the board. When done well, responsive web design ensures that your customers are getting the best user experience possible, irrespective of how they are interacting with your website.

    A typical website project will take up to 12 weeks to complete. Our approach starts with the research and project specification phase, before moving into User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI), and finally into development.
    But we don’t stop there. Unlike other providers, we will guide and support you as your business grows and challenges throughout your journey.

    One question we are often asked is – how much will it cost to build a website?
    The short answer is that a custom website development will depend entirely on the features and functionality required. The first step in our approach is always the discovery stage, from which we will better understand your requirements.

    SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation, a digital marketing technique to increase your visibility on search engines like Google. The better your visibility in the search results, the more likely you are to attract new users to your website and in term increase the number of on-site conversions.
