Website design

The sky's the limit

From small websites to large

We are specialists in developing clean, functional, simple to use websites, tailored to your specific requirements, whether it's a single page website or something a little larger.

Allowing you to focus on running your business

We believe having a website should not be a stress but a pleasure. Our clients' needs and technical know-how varies wildly so we adapt our service from doing everything to providing tools to look after your website yourself, with every stage in between.

Leave us to handle everything, from managing your domain name (the .co.uk / .com address) to configuring your email addresses, making maintenance updates and ensuring your website remains in tip top condition.

Priding ourselves on speaking in jargon-free plain English, we are always willing to answer as many questions as you need to ask, both through the design and development process and beyond while supporting your website.

Don't just take our word for it...

We would like to thank the team at Beachshore for the fantastic work and effort put into creating our new website. Paul, our dedicated web designer, was confident from the start, that he could put together a website that worked for us and he was not wrong!

Our five-step process to a successful performing website

Each website is different, as every client is different, but we apply our five-step process to each development project.

1. Discovery & analysis

Starting out with understanding where you are with your business, whether it's a start-up in need of branding or something more established where you're looking for a step to the next level. This is where we understand your requirements, the scope of your website, its functions, your likes and dislikes and offer our input, based on many years working with businesses across a broad spectrum of industries. This is also the time to establish if you need help with content writing, photography, branding or any other key elements which go to making a top quality website.

2. Design

Taking on board everything we've discussed in the discovery stage, we draw up some designs for you to view in a web browser, simulating the look of your final design. While usually we are very close first time, this is the key stage where you have the input to say what you like or dislike about the design. We want every customer to be delighted with the finished design so time and focus is put into this stage so we don't progress further until you're happy with how its looking.

3. Development

Where the magic happens and we use our box of tricks to make your website a reality. This is always an iterative stage where we provide you with access to your website to try out as experience has shown this is where we fine-tune the design and content. Changes are published for you to review and this continues until the website is ready to launch.

4. Launch

The moment your website is presented to the world. If it's a new website for a start-up, we introduce the website to Google, to start the process of it being ranked in the search engine results. For a replacement website we ensure old is mapped to new so you don't lose any search engine position you may already have attained.

5. Continuing support

A key part of what we do. In fact we spend far more of our time working to support existing clients than we do on new website development. From the outset, we've believed that our place should be as a continuing technical support, moulded to each businesses' needs. For some clients, we hear from them occasionally. For others it can be several times a week. The point is we are always there, can be relied upon and will address any issues or questions with patience and clarity. Our support plans are set up to encourage our clients to contact us for website maintenance and support. We see no point in putting obstacles in the way of keeping your website fresh and current.

Don't just take our word for it...

Paul has built several excellent websites for me over the past 7 years and is always responsive, creative and takes feedback quickly to improve the end product. I would highly recommend him.

The technical bit (for those who like a bit of jargon)

Each new website we produce is designed to be mobile responsive, meaning it works smoothly on any device, from desktop, to laptop, tablet to smart phone. The vast majority of our websites are hand-crafted, using HTML5, CSS3, PHP7, MySQL and JQuery. We tend to use some industry standard products such as Wordpress for their intended aim (i.e. blogging). Anything more complex is developed by us, so it's not tailoring an off-the-shelf package but producing a solution designed solely for you.

Our websites are hosted on high grade UK-based web servers, with secure (SSL) certificates included.

If you wish to know anything else about the tools we use, please ask, we'll be happy to discuss this with you.
