How is your website helping your business to grow?

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.
Although attractive design is a factor, a great website is not just about looks alone. The best website design considers the user experience, usability, goals and objectives, target markets and localisation.

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. If anyone can create a website, why should your business use a design and build agency like Nivo? 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 brsitol based website design agency

The short answer is yes! 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: 

We build customised websites that meet our clients needs and help their businesses to grow.

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.
Whether you sell products or offer specialist services, a 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 the UK. 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.

A website that is specifically designed and built to help you convert your customers online is a smart and safe business investment.

Marketing focused websites in Bristol

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 in a post Covid-19 pandemic world. It’s even more important if you have ambitions for business growth, especially if your website is business-critical.

Business-critical websites - A typical example of a business critical website is a platform that allows your customers to sign up to comms or services, contact you directly for support or buy products and services. If your website is vital in how your business operates it needs to work well and perform for you.

There are some red flags to look out for in your Google Analytics account that can be helpful in identifying problems with your current website. Here are some common indicators that suggest you need to either improve your current website or get a new one:
Answering these questions will help you to decide on whether you need to invest in website work or not.

Nivo Digital: a bristol WordPress website design agency

We understand the importance of distinct branding. How a business presents itself online is hugely important, especially if you want to attract visitors and convert potential customers that are trying to find your brand online.
.
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 we have a skilled inhouse 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. 

Edit yourself

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:

We build websites that consider all of these media types so that your website can be the most useful to visitors. This, in turn, will help content on your website to rank high in SERPs.

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:

Competitor Analysis

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. 

Identify Personas

Understanding your customers and target audiences helps us to design a website that will appeal to who you want to attract.

Architecture

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. 

Wireframes & UX

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.

User Flow

Heat maps and additional analytics allow us to test user journeys as we build and develop websites. This is very important for user experience.
