It's important to take the time at the start of every new project to understand your objectives and contraints, map out what content will be included and identify specific calls to action. This is also an opportunity for us to explore different ways you can communicate with your customers.
A wireframe is the blueprint that defines the different page layouts and where content will appear. Its flexibility lets us quickly test out ideas and move things around before progressing to a mockup.
A sitemap lists the pages required and indicates where they should be in the website structure.
Due to the increasing number of devices people now use to access the internet, it no longer makes sense to have a different site for each specific screen size. Instead, we build one website that responds to the device it's being viewed on by dynamically rearranging the content so it looks great for every single visitor. You can see responsive design in action now by resizing your browser window!
Websites are no longer restricted to using just a handful of web-safe fonts and we can now choose from thousands of styles to dramatically improve the visual impact of your site.
If you don't already have a logo, brand colours or fonts your website will need them.
We use your logo and branding to create a palette of colours that will keep your site consistent and select fonts that set the right tone for you.
We bring your colours, fonts and wireframe together to produce a bespoke website mockup for desktops, tablets and mobile phones.
We offer two levels of design, both of which are elegant and professional – the difference in prices reflects how much time we allow and the number of revisions.
Once you have approved the finalised mockup we begin the build – this is the stage where the mockup becomes a real, fully responsive and functional website.
Your Homepage is always the first page layout we create and includes the setup and configuration of Concrete5, as well as training in how to use it.
*Please note this is required for all new websites
All page layouts (even your Homepage) can be used again and again like cookie cutters to create as many pages as you need. They have all the structural and design elements in place and are ready for content to be added.
We can input all your content at a flat rate per page including text, images, videos, tables and contact forms.
As a cost effective alternative to a photographer, we provide a stock image sourcing service based on your requirements, design and budget. Please note this does not include any usage fees for your chosen images.
Concrete5 makes adding all kinds of content quick and easy including videos and audio so we don't charge any extra to include these.
If you're looking to display a lot of media content, we recommend using image galleries, image sliders or video channels as appropriate. They all include setup and styling and can be used as many times as you like. Most importantly, all our media products are fully user editable.
Commonly used for splash banners to highlight important content, our image sliders feature fully-editable titles and images as well as a range of slide transitions.
Our fully animated slider gives an option of advanced sequences of images and text.
We offer a range of a image galleries to suit all purposes and are happy to advise on what will be most suitable for your content.
If you have a YouTube channel, we can embed it on your website as a gallery with lightbox-style overlay.
There is no charge to add individual videos as they are treated like regular content.
Many aspects of SEO happen during the build – we can optimise your content to help search engines recognise your keywords to give you the best chance of a great ranking. Once the site is built, we use the industry standard 'Google Pagespeed Insights' tool to help us provide highly optimised content with techniques such as compression, image optimisation, script minification etc.
Google recommends responsive web design as the best way to target mobile users, favouring mobile-optimised sites when presenting results for searches made on a mobile device which is why all our new sites are designed from a 'mobile-first' perspective.
Our on-site SEO service covers a variety of best practises recommended by Google that positively impact your page ranking.
Google Analytics shows you the full customer picture across ads and videos, websites and social tools, tablets and smartphones, making it easier to target your ideal customers. We integrate your Analytics account with your website to activate tracking.
We recommend PayPal as it is simple to use, reliable and familiar, making it a great way to start selling online. It provides a very affordable method of selling your products with no subscription costs.
Please note you will need a verified PayPal account to receive payments.
Sometimes Concrete5 isn't always the right platform to use. If you have a lot of products and customers we might recommend something more Ecommerce focused like Shopify or Opencart or embedded product feeds from marketplaces such as eBay or Amazon.
We create a Buy Now button for each product you want to sell which takes users directly to checkout on the PayPal site.
If you would like your customers to buy more than one product at a time, you should include a cart so they can check out everything in one transaction.
Due to the increasing number of devices people now use to access the internet, it no longer makes sense to have a different site for each specific screen size.

In addition, Google now recommends responsive web design as the best way to target mobile users and favours mobile-optimised sites when presenting results for searches made on a mobile.
