Website design in Bristol
If you own a business with ambitions for growth and success, your website is of vital importance in achieving that.
A website can be a main sales tool for brands online. It’s possibly the most important marketing tool you possess. Get it right and your business will grow. Get it wrong, and you risk losing customers to your competitors. Take control of how customers experience your brand online by curating meaningful, exciting and helpful interactions with a custom-built website.
Discover the impact a professionally designed and developed website can have for your business now.
At Nivo Digital we know that a functional and intuitive website designed using marketing expertise can create revenue for businesses, whatever their size. A website specifically designed to help a business convert customers online is an extremely powerful marketing tool.
Are Web designers still needed?
There are lots of cheap website design tools available online. You might be wondering – If anyone can create a website, why should your business use a design and build agency like Nivo Digital? Creating a website yourself may seem like an appealing way to cut marketing costs but you should consider three things before making that decision.
We believe that marketing-minded web designers can be extremely useful to businesses that want to increase their visibility online.
Using a bristol based website design agency
If you want a website that will help your business to grow we strongly recommend considering an agency that has experience and expertise in digital marketing too.
At Nivo Digital, we design and build websites that will give you a competitive edge over businesses that build their own websites or use ‘design only’ agencies. As an agency, we have specialist knowledge of all marketing channels and disciplines. We use that knowledge to inform and influence every aspect of our website design and build projects.
Our websites are built for both the user AND search engines. We also build websites with the following digital marketing channels in mind:
The benefits of custom website design
Unlike social media channels that have fixed template designs and user interfaces, a website can be completely customised to your brand. Whether it’s the look and feel of your business or the way you present your products and services, a customised website can be completely shaped to present your business in the best way possible.
A customised website:
Whether you sell products or offer specialist services, a well-designed, customised website is the perfect place to inform and convince a user that they should choose you instead of one of your competitors.
Marketing focused websites - a smart investment
There are hundreds of young businesses in Bristol. In the early stages they are very conscious of where their money is being spent. Many cannot afford to spend thousands of pounds on a website. They want a website quickly so that they can start getting new business.
Speak to any graphic designer or web developer and they will explain their frustrations with the following question:
Can you build me a website any cheaper and faster than projected?
We understand why these are valid questions for business owners.
Cost and time are a business’ biggest challenges when thinking about starting a website. They want to spend the minimum amount of money on a good website that they can have quickly. However, much like everything in life, we believe that you get what you pay for.
If a website is built correctly by skilled and knowledgeable marketing specialists and web developers, it can return on your initial investment very quickly. This is because marketing has been a central consideration throughout the design and build of that website. If your website is built with marketing as a central function you will convert visitors into customers.
But you don’t have to break the bank to get a marketing focussed website.
How do I know if I need a new website for my bristol based business?
Both of the above questions are really important if you want your business to survive. It’s even more important if you have ambitions for business growth, especially if your website is business-critical.
Nivo Digital: a bristol WordPress website design agency
Much of that comes down to how your website looks and functions. Combined with a cost consideration, a website needs to work for you and your business. That’s why we exclusively use WordPress to design and develop websites for our clients.
Why do we use WordPress to design and develop websites
Out of the box, WordPress is very minimalistic. It does exactly what it says it can and it does it well. We use premium WordPress templates that are specific to your individual niche and alter them based on your colours, your branding and any images you may currently have.
Not only are they bespoke, professional and perfectly optimised but they are very affordable.
One of the best things about WordPress is that it is completely free forever. There are no hidden costs. This means that you get a website that won’t require additional investment in the future.
A WordPress website is affordable and offers everything your business needs.
Bespoke WordPress Web Design
You might be wondering, “what if WordPress can’t do this?” We guarantee that whatever “this” is, someone has created it for WordPress. With so many people using WordPress, professional developers have filled a market by creating “Plugins” that add extra functionality to WordPress websites.
WORDPRESS HAS EVERY FEATURE YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS
One of the connotations that you might have about WordPress is that its website templates are ugly: it doesn’t look as good as a professionally designed website. This is where we add value.
At Nivo Digital we have a skilled in-house graphic designer who is able to design and build your business a website which is both functional and beautiful. Utilising the knowledge of CRO and SEO specialists in our team, we deliver effective and powerful websites at an achievable cost for you.
WordPress is very simple to use.
WordPress is the equivalent of Microsoft Word. It offers the ability to drag and drop content, images, videos exactly where you want them to appear on your website.
Take a look at the video below to see just how easy it is to add a new post.
This makes it a perfect platform for you to make changes to your website yourself. We believe you should be able to make any changes you want to your website and not be at the mercy of the designers who built it.
However, we’re here to help if you want us to make those changes too.
Website features - Mobile first website design
This is one of the most important website build considerations. Mobile First is a modern design and build strategy for developing and maintaining websites. Mobile First should now be the way that all websites are designed and built as an absolute requirement.
When we start a website project, we think ‘Mobile First’ for several reasons. Mobile responsive frameworks are often used to design websites but a Mobile First approach to design places the needs of a mobile users’ needs as the most important aspect of the website experience.
So, rather than making a desktop website and then forcing it to fit in a mobile box, you create a website that considers the majority of users (on mobile) first.
For the user:
57% of internet users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed website on mobile
For Search Engines:
When Google ranks your website it will judge how the website works on mobile devices BEFORE it looks at a desktop version. This is why it is so important that your website is designed and built for mobile devices first.
Website features - multimedia experiences created in bristol
Another major ranking factor for SERPs is how useful your website content is for visitors. Search engines know that different types of media can be useful to different types of customers across a variety of browsing devices.
A website should be able to present and support a variety of media types such as:
Bespoke website design: Our Process
Our approach to designing and developing a new website involves 4-steps that we follow for each website build project. Each phase involves collaboration with the client so that they have complete visibility of every detail.
Understanding Your Requirements
After receiving your enquiry from the calculator above, we will look at your existing website (if you have one) as well as your industry, colours, features and any other details you shared with us and come up with a few possible templates that would fit your design and business model.
We send these off to you and you choose the best one with our help.
Tweaks & Setup
Testing & Going Live
After testing we transfer your completed site to your hosting and make it live.
Building websites in bristol: best practice
Throughout the design and build process we also look at different aspects of web design that must be considered:
We look at your competitors websites to see if there is anything we should include. We’ll never copy. Instead, we’ll learn and build a better version of what already exists.
Understanding your customers and target audiences helps us to design a website that will appeal to who you want to attract.
An intuitive and logical website structure is probably one of the most important things to achieve, not just for website users but search engines too.
User Experience (or UX) is another aspect of website design that is vital to the success of your website. We look at site architecture and user experience using wireframes and page models to ensure we’re creating useful and helpful websites.
Heat maps and additional analytics allow us to test user journeys as we build and develop websites. This is very important for user experience.
