Our Brilliant Web Design Company : Why you need the best...
These days the internet is stuffed to the gills with website's that are in direct competition with you. In order to succeed and run a successful business it is not enough anymore just to have a website, you need to have the best website, and it needs to be at the top of Google.
Neither of these things happen by chance, why risk the future of your company by allowing yourself not to be the best. We build the best websites and get them to the top.
What will it cost me?
If you are looking for a price the best thing to do is to give us a quick call and ask for a quote. The reason that we dont have a set price list is that each job is different, some require more work and others take less time. For that reason we treat each job separately and you dont get charged more than you should.
We have a reputation for going above and beyond in order to get your website set up and working correctly, we will help you with each stage of the process from choosing a domain name, and web hosting, to configuring your DNS, and helping you to set up your email.
When do I pay & how long does it all take?
To build your website takes on average between a few days to 5 or 6 weeks for a more complicated project. We put everything in writing in a contract and take a 50% deposit, the balance is payable upon completion. We dont add any hidden extras like some of our competitors do. The price you are quoted is the price you will pay.
To optimise your website for your chosen keywords we work for 1 month at a time. We require the months payment in advance and then continue to work on your optimisation for the duration of the month. The work that we do continues to effect the website for long after we have stopped work. The links that we build during the course of the month continue to get found naturally by Google, and their accumulative effect works for you for as long as they remain in place. In some cases a great many years.
Where are your offices & what areas do you cover?
We are based in Southend on Sea, Essex and in East London. However we do not limit ourselves to only working within those areas, we work for companies through out the whole of the UK, and in some instances we will also work with companies abroad such as in Dubai or other places.
Why not call us to see if we are available to take on your project?

We will soon be updating our web design portfolio with newer examples of our work. We are well aware that there are some websites still on there that we built 7 years ago. Where as most of our newer work is not yet added to the portfolio. Some of these are ecommerce websites and others are business websites. We will endeavour to update the portfolio for you all very soon.
We have also decided to focus more on the Search Engine Optimisation service that we offer. We have invested heavily in this area and are able to offer you SEO (or Search engine optimisation, also known as search engine optimization or sometimes SEM - Search Engine Marketing). If you have just one or two keywords that you would like us to work on for you, we can do that for you no problem. Alternatively you might have a large website with 20, 40, 60 or more keywords that you want us to work on for you. This too is not a problem, we can cater for all sizes of campaign. It is worth noting that we dont make you sign up to a long contract either, we just do good work, and rely on our results to keep you as a loyal customer. We work with our optimisation customers for 1 month at a time. During that month we will optimise your website in Google and other search engines, at the end of the month you decide if you would like us to keep working on the website. The good results that we have achieved during that month will be what you will be able to base your decision on. Some websites only require 1 or 2 months to get right to the top, and it may take many months before they start to slip, at which point you can simply come back to us and we can work our SEO magic on your website again. Other websites with more competition may take several months to get to the top, however even in this situation, you will see movement in the SERPs (search engine page results) so you will be able to see yourself making progress. Please note however that we do not offer SEO services to any website that are related to: gambling, pornography, politics, religion.
If you are not as high in the search engines as you would like to be, then give us a call and we can take a look at your website, and work with you to get you to the top where you belong. Dont forget to view the Search engine optimisation pages on this website for useful information that can help you understand the subject better.
You may have realised the importance of Google maps, or Google Places listings in local search results. They are currently a hot subject and are being heavily promoted by Google. The upshot of this for you is that if you search for a keyword, depending on the keyword, the chances are that you will see at the top of the page on Google's search results the local Google Map, or Google Places listings. They often show a photograph or image, as well as the company name, contact phone number, and email address, and a list to their website, or if they dont have a website a list to their Place page on Google.
This is a very powerful advert, and with the positioning being right at the top of the page, above the natural search results, more people are likely to click on and view these adverts. There are lots of ebooks and things out there on how to get to the top of the Google maps results, but beware they are mostly talking rubbish. The advice in them seems to range from ways of trying to game Google in to putting your listing at the top by cramming the title with keywords, to adding your area and address in places they are not supposed to go. We can assure you that these
techniques will not work,? in fact they not only will not work , they may actually get you penalised or banned. So please be very careful when setting up a Google places or a Google maps listing. We offer a professional Google Maps Optimisation service, and of course a Google Places Optimisation Service too.
If you dont have a Google Places listing , or a Google Map set up, then we can do this for you, if you do have one, but are having problems with it, then we can take over and get the problems sort out for you and get your listing working properly for you.
If you want to beat your competition, then you need to get an edge that they dont have. This is where you will be glad that you hired us. we can get you to rocket past your competition, your website will leave them in the dust. One call to us, and you will be on your way to the top.
Although the Google Page Layout Update was designed to target websites with a high number of adverts shown in prominent positions on them, in actual fact it also mistakenly affected a lot of other websites too. They have decided that text information should be displayed in very specific locations on your website, and that the navigation on your website should be in specific locations. For this reason our video was mistaken for an Advert, and the layout of our website despite following the recommendation of using only 100% unique content on the website, caused us to fall foul of the update, and for a short while we lost our rankings in Google.
We have since made several changes to our website to rectify the problem areas and comply with Google's ever increasingly demanding requirements. If your website has had problems with this website layout algorithm update too, then you may find it useful to check out this tool: Page Layout/ browser size tool. If you need professional help with this or any other website design problem, then you can call us.
Right from the start over 12 years ago we took the lead in E commerce. We kept getting customers that were just not satisfied with what was available out there. They wanted to know if we could offer them anything better. So we decided we would. That started a long process of studying all the different systems that were available at the time and how both website owners, and their customers felt about how they worked and what their limitations were.What we found was a long list of flaws, with common complains such as the system is too difficult to use, you had to make your changes offline then upload everything to the website again each time you wanted to update something. For the customers they didnt want to be forced to register an account on the website before they could go shopping etc. So we set about building our own ecommerce website system, that resolved all of these issues, and along the way we continued to tweaks and improve our system. It has proved to be highly popular as it is very affordable and supremely easy to use and manage.
However we have made any adjustments to our system for a long time now, I guess we had just got used to being the best and got complacent. This was a mistake, so we have recently assessed the available options again and decided it was time to improve our ecommerce sites again. So we have started to do just that, a series of improvements are being installed right now as we speak, you can view the new ecommerce system that we are developing at: Ecommerce Quotes.
The system isnt yet completed and we are still adding some programming so if you get an error when you test it, dont worry, this is because we are actually working on it at the time you visited, you can either try again later or better still just call us and we can arrange a private viewing and test drive just for you.
As you know there are thousands of companies that want your business, but there is no way that you could possibly speak to them all, so how can you get the best quote for your new website? Well first of all we need to identify what "the best" actually means. Are you looking for any old website regardless of how it looks and how well it functions, as long as it is really really cheap? Of course not. So while you want a good price, equally important is to get an attractive and professional looking website, and to be sure that it will work properly and do everything that you need it to.
So now we have somewhere to start, you can start by looking at the companies own website, and in particular look at their portfolio. This is VERY important, because some companies have excellent sales people, who will promise you the earth and can talk you in to signing up with them. But in the real world, if the quality of the websites in their portfolio is poor or not particularly anything special, then why would you believe that the website they will build for you will be any better? Chances are very high that the website they produce for you will not be anywhere near what you want, but by then you will have already spent your money, and will be either stuck with it, or will need to pay someone else all over again. This is why it is so important to do your homework first. If they dont have a portfolio dont even bother with them, move on. If that company isnt showing you it's work then it has something to hide, or at least it isnt confident that examples of past work will encourage you to work with them. If they do have a portfolio and you wouldnt be happy with that same quality of work then just move on. They might be able to offer you a really cheap deal, but you wouldnt be happy with the website you would end up with.
Once you have found a company with a reasonable portfolio of good quality and well designed sites, then you need to contact them to discuss what you are looking for. If the website only has a contact form and there is no telephone number for you to call or any way of speaking with an actual person, then walk away. All you need to ask yourself is: if this all goes wrong or you need to contact them for some reason, but there is no telephone number to call, then how are you going to get hold of them? What if they take your money and you never hear from them again. (Sadly this happens, so dont let it happen to you, walk away.)
So now your chosen website designer has a nice website, with helpful information on it, a nice portfolio, and contact numbers for speaking with them. Next make a list of the things that you want your website to do. Try to find other similar websites to what you are looking for to show them, or websites that you like particular things about them. Note all this down, and then call them and have a chat. Make a note of how helpful they are, how how friendly, ask specific questions such as how long the website will take to complete. Do you need to pay a deposit or all upfront? (it is much better if you can pay a deposit at the start, and the balance when the website is finished.) Will they provide you with a proper contract? (It is important to get everything down in writing, that way they cant cut corners, or try to deny what they promised to do for you in the first place, later on. Again this is quite common, so make sure you get it in writing.) Are they pushy, do they try to push you in to a sale when you are not quite ready? If So walk away, this is a bad sign, they wont care about you or your needs once they have your money, you can do better than that.
The reason that we are talling you all this, is that we so often hear of people who have been ripped off, or who have already spent their money on a website that is terrible, and they are heartbroken, and now need to find someone professional to start again from scratch for them. Dont let it happen to you, find someone that you can trust and get the website that you really want.
