We create beautiful and professional websites that are fully optimised and responsive on all screen types and sizes.
When do visitors leave a website quickly?
Your company website is a reflection of you and your business. You don’t just want people to visit the site; you want them to stay and look around it. If you have a high bounce-rate, as in people leave your site too quickly, you will find it tricky to gain a dedicated following. The design of your site could be the problem here, especially if you have not updated it in quite some time. If you are not generating the traffic you need, read these crucial reasons people could be leaving your site.
The design is not user friendly
When people visit your page, they want all the information they need, and they want it fast. If the design of the site is busy, they won’t be able to find what they need. The usability of the site has a massive impact on whether people stay or go. If someone can’t figure out how to use a site, they will find another page to look at instead. If the layout is confusing, you will lose clients. It is just that simple.
There are too many pop-ups
You might think that pop-ups are an excellent way of generating an extra revenue stream for your company. While it might make you money, it can be an issue for users. People associate pop-ups and flashy adverts with viruses and malware, so they steer well clear of these sites.
It is not a responsive site
In the modern world, people no longer view sites solely on their laptops or computers. These days, people use their phones and tablets to browse the web. If your site is not responsive (i.e. it is not tablet or phone ready), it will put users off. You need a flexible site, which users can view no matter what device they use.
Your links redirect the user
Again, there are many reasons you might want to redirect users to a different page or, indeed, an advert. Avoid doing so wherever possible. When users click a link, they want to go to a particular page. They will not like the fact that you are wasting their time with redirects and advertising.
Hint: Avoid redirect links wherever possible.
It takes too long to load the site
Having a million different plugins might make your site look intriguing, but what does it do to the load-time? You might have super fast internet, but not all your customers will have the same. If it takes more than a few seconds or so to load a site, people will not wait around, and you will lose their interest.
The general design of a website is massively important when it comes to gaining traffic. If you want to be a success, you need to ensure that you don’t make any of these hazardous mistakes.
Nowadays websites are so much more than simply online profiles for businesses. They can be used to sell products, generate leads or foot traffic, explain to readers how to do something, and even increase awareness about social issues. We envision a world where the web is fully leveraged by the modern small and medium business. Our mission is to empower our customers to take full advantage of the value a modern, optimised website brings into their day-to-day operations.

Why Should You Use WordPress for website design?
We choose to build websites in WordPress , which is an open source product that offers a long-lasting website solution that can grow organically with your business.
WordPress is an Open Source Software
WordPress is an Open Source software which means it is free! It can be used on any personal, and/or commercial projects without any restrictions (cost, legal etc).
Why would you want to pay a company, a yearly license fee that does the same job as WordPress with a difficult user interface? Why not just hire one developer if you are willing to spend the cash and pay him/her as you need their service. Many high-end CMS requires “Seat Licenses” which means that you have to pay them per user who will be using it. On the other hand WordPress is free of such restrictions. It does not even require backlinks which many other scripts do.
WordPress is a content management system that gives you the foundations of a website (pages and a blog). You can add content and edit it, without ever needing to touch the code. You do not have to be an expert to use WordPress on your website. With the use of online tutorials you can learn to update the content on your website and make some basic tweaks and changes yourself.
WordPress uses ‘themes’ – templates that give your site its look. When you install WordPress it comes with its own theme, but there are lots of different free and paid-for themes you can choose from instead, and you don’t need to spend much money to get an amazing-looking site.
WordPress also enables you to include extra components, so if you need any special functions on your site, you can just add them on as plugins. There is a saying in the WordPress community “There’s a plugin for that”. No matter what you are thinking of, 99% of the time that statement applies to you. WordPress has many open-source plugins that can assist you in making WordPress look however you want it to look.
Standard Web Compliance
WordPress have gone to great lengths to make sure every bit of the generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important for cross browser compatibility, usability, and SEO as well.
Upgrading from previous versions and migrating from other softwares is a piece of cake. There is a one-click upgrade feature available. There are plenty of importers available that will let you move your sites from other services over to WordPress.
