Website Design & Development
I have been developing websites for over 20 years. It is my strong belief that all organisations and businesses should have a great website.
Why would the smallest of organisations, perhaps a not-for-profits charity need a business?
You may rely on volunteers, donations or visitors who need to check your location, contact details and opening hours.
Do you run events or have members?
I can create you a streamlined online calendar, sell tickets from it and use it as the basis of promotion and sales for those events. Members can access exclusive content, they may have paid for.
Do you sell products, downloads or your services?
A fully functioning online store which will accept payments by credit & debit cards, BACS, PayPal or Apple & Google Pay costs less than you think…and can provide you with a great income.
It is an expectation that all business and organisations have a website…an online presence.
If you are thinking about a website, great idea!
It is the single most important thing you can do to promote and enhance your business online.
Around the central hub of your website, your social media, marketing, communciations and sales can revolve.
The technology regarding website development is constantly improving.
Was your website built more than 3 years ago?
The chances are it will hugely benefit from updating and optimising in order visitors can access it from their smart-phones easily.
Websites can be optimised for access on tablets and smart-phones and if your site isn’t, visitors will not enjoy the best experience.
I often get asked to completely overhaul a website in order to better represent the business or organisation it belongs to.
The Quakers Running Club in Darlington had a functional website but they felt they wanted to redevelop it in order to include an online store, a complete make-over and to make the site more user friendly.
Feedback from members was positive with the ease of being able to renew membership via the online store, being of particular benefit.
Updating your website
Websites are organic and should be updated, honed and edited in line with the changing requirements or offer of your business or organisation.
A stagnant website is not good for customers and as Google likes new content, a static website will increasingly lose its search engine visibility.
Get in touch if you would like an one-off update or if your require regular maintenance.

I recommend a redevelopment every 3 years in order to keep your website in the tip-top condition.
This might mean adding some stunning new images, creating new pages and retiring older tired pages. Or it could mean a completely new theme with colours, layout, images and text renewed.
If your website is more than 3 years old, take a good look and decide if it would benefit from updating.
