WEBSITE DESIGN OVERVIEW

It is now generally accepted in today’s ever competitive marketplace that every business (big or small) needs to have a web presence. Websites are considered to be the second most powerful advertising tool available – second only to direct referrals by word of mouth.

Gillett Multimedia understand the importance of designing a website solution that meets the needs of your business and more importantly the message you are conveying to your target audience. Let’s understand that without getting your message across you have a rather fancy website that is just not getting your business recognised and costing you money just for looking pretty!

Also today, it is critically important that your website functions and looks good on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Is your existing website “mobile friendly”?

In other words, does it actually work and look good on mobile phones and other mobile devices like iPads and tablets? Web users are increasingly using their smartphones and mobile devices to browse the web and to search for local services. Therefore if your website is not mobile friendly then the truth is you are unlikely to ever be found on Google, and your website is not working for you and is unlikely to ever really work for you again.

When GMM takes on your website project we don’t just design the site, we also supply you with a strategy to get your company highly placed on the internet. We offer advice on the best options to get the website noticed and submit your website to Google and get it re-indexed on a regular basis.

We offer various web solutions that are tailored to your own individual business needs.

Website Design & Creation Process

At GMM, we have staff that has been involved with every aspect of the internet since 1996 and in doing so have developed an orderly procedure that has been proven to work time and time again.

The Initial Consultation: This meeting will take place at your presises and is totally free and without any obligation. The goal is to develop your ideas and discuss the way forward. We will answer any questions you may have about the design process and make suggestions on the best way to reach your potential audience.

Estimate Preparation: Once you have decided that you are confident with our business plan for your website we will prepare a detailed estimate for the cost of the project.

Signing of Agreement: Once you have accepted our estimate GMM will prepare a standard agreement for you to sign. This will outline all work we intend to do along with the costing estimate. Upon signing the agreement a 50% deposit will be due.

Production: GMM will now collate all the information we need from you. This will be the text and graphic content we will need to create the initial template. Ely Web Solutions will assist you in pulling together the text, logo, graphics, and photographs needed for the site.

Page Layout Drafts: It is Gillett Multimedia’s policy to keep you the client fully informed of every step we take in the design process. After all it is your website we are designing for YOU! Access to your website will be granted through your very own control panel. Here you will be able to view your websites progress.

Launch and Marketing: Payment balance is due and payable at the time when site is uploaded to the server and is “live”. Once your website is launched GMM will submit your website to Google and will monitor your rankings in Google to ensure you get a high placement.

Set Price Websites

Our Set Price Websites are designed to take your business straight to the internet. We design for the three most important audiences a website has – the search engines, your site visitors, and you!

These Set Price packages are perfect for both companies looking to launch their first business website and for those companies looking for better results than they are currently experiencing with their existing web presence.

Webvert (single page website)
A WebVert provides your company with an very affordable full-colour advertisement that is available on the world wide web all day,every day, 365 days a year. For all potential new customers and clients to discover you, and for all past customers and friends to point to, whenever they refer your business to others.

It is of great importance, we feel, that this one-page website works as a “lead-magnet” and creates leads and enquiries for you by essentially being a large “call to action” page.

Although the website has now been augmented with extra pages, a good example of a lead-generating webvert would be the home page of the Gillett Multi Marketing website we created for ourselves here:GMM Webvert

Included with our “webvert” package:

FREE .uk domain name
FREE Unlimited Email Addresses – (yourname@yourcompany.co.uk)
FREE Website Hosting (for the life of the website)
FREE Updates to your webvert in the 1st year

Tailored Website Solutions

If you find that our set price websites do not allow your company the creativity and expansion that you and your company require then a tailored website solution is probably the next step to take.

Our tailored solutions allow a much broader scope in design and implementation than our set price websites. You are not tied to the page restrictions and can have as many pages as is deemed necesary. You may have a need for your website to pull data from a MySql database and also be able to add, update and delete information and pages yourself as and when you need to.

With our tailored website Solutions you are able to have a content management system which allows you to login and update your information any time without having the added cost of getting your Website Developer to do this for you at an additional charge.

A tailored website can also incorporate a shopping system if you have products you would like to sell. For more infomation on Ecommerce and shopping systems please go to our Ecommerce section.

Gillett Mutimedia happy to discuss any questions you may have. Just call us to talk on mobile 07772 856004 or email at gilllettmultimedia@gmail.com

WEBSITE MAKEOVER

If your website is a few years old and is looking slightly outdated why not consider refreshing the design with a makeover? Its amazing how a small change in layout or colour scheme can give the site a whole new look and feel. Also remember that ‘content is king’ so be sure to update your text and keep the content fresh.

A makeover ranges from a small ‘freshen up’ to adding extra functionality such as a clients area, online catalogue or newsletter system. There is so much more to be gained from your site if it’s full potential is realised.

Improve Client Focus: The existing website does not produce results. In these cases, the existing website focused on the company’s greatness and generally ignored the client’s problems. This format causes the visitor to quickly lose interest in the website and click away.

Enhance Design: The existing website does not support business objectives. The website may look attractive and even get good traffic, but it does not convert visitors to clients. The website does not hit client hot buttons and does not facilitate the client to take an action (buy product, complete enquiry form, etc.)

Improve Search Engine Performance: The existing website cannot be found in Google. In today’s very competitive search engine environment, a website must frequently be designed from the ground up to rank well for your given search terms in Google. We do have techniques for improving search engine performance without dramatic changes to the existing website.

Freshen-up the Look: The existing website looks boring. The colors are dark or drab. There are no rollovers and few or poor quality photos. The text may be on a dark or textured background that is hard to read. We can usually gives these types of sites a quick visual makeover in just a few weeks.

Gillett Multimedia can discuss your website makeover requirements and make suggestions to you on what is the best solution for you and your company. Just call us to talk on mobile 07772 856004 or email at gillettmultimedia@gmail.com
