What exactly do we do?Lots! We have a broad range of web design, marketing and business skills....
We Design & Build Websites for the SME
We favour working mainly with WordPress, Woo Commerce and Shopify for web sites – informational and e-commerce as we feel the administration side of these platforms are easier for the client to manage post hand over – i.e. the small business user who has enough on their plate without having to learn to code. Training / documentation specific to your new website can be provided. We arrange domain names and hosting. For the consumer, the main differences between platforms relates mainly to how they are supported:
Shopify is a subscription based – all in one online commerce system.
WordPress – combination of own domain, own hosting, own design or theme with support for each held separately.
Talk to us too, if you wish to use Opencart, Twitter Bootstrap or coded.
Versatility of styles include galleries, portfolios, blogging, CMS and much more.
