A Summer of Website Rescue – SOS

Something to do while we are stuck indoors – Build your own church!

So, this idea has been three months in the making. I thought I'd make a model of our village church. From then it grew into something we were planning to print, and issue to the village for people to make their own church to support the roof repair fund. Well, now,...

Website Security ‘Must Haves’ for 2020

PJG Garden Designs – A Labour of love

Video bringing property rentals to life

I was very lucky to be able to pitch to undertake video tours for a local home rental company. With some very clever tech, and just the right camera set up, these properties really do stand out from those with only images. Here's a sample.......

Whateley Hall BanburyAre you looking for a local Graphic & Web Design Specialist? I have developed many websites for businesses in & around Banbury. Living just a few miles south, I have developed for this lovely village just south of the town. A few pubs also in this area, such as are benefitting from a fresh looking site.

I focus my attention on what your business needs most, first looking at what drives sales, and loyalty, and then what we can do with a website to help meet these goals.

Most clients want to be free from ties to a designer as they have heard some terrible tales. I give my clients every piece of useful information, including all account details, passwords etc, even if I tell them not to use some of them for fear of breaking the site.

Then people tend to be looking for a hassle-free, jargon-free service, that will give them what they want in terms of design, and functions. Some common functions on a website are:

  • Search Engine Optimisation – Included in the price with vwd
  • Analytics to see how many visits they get – Included in the price with vwd
  • Contact Forms
  • Content Management System, so they can edit the content
  • Links to Social Media, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.
  • Online sales, with shopping cart
  • Video or slideshows
  • CRM (Customer Relationship Management) facilities to collect customer data, and send regular mailings to them

But, if you look at what you see on any competitor’s website, then it can be done on yours!
