To ensure we deliver the best website for you or your business, we set up FREE Skype calls to ensure we are 100% confident that your needs have been interpreted correctly.
Having extra features extend the functionality of your website. Please see an explanation below of what each feature is used for.
Choose this option if you need more than a simple contact form, which could include any of the following:
Creating stunning banners with movement so they attract your customer’s attention. They can be used as an advertisement if you’re running a promotion to draws buyers to that page, or they can simply display your products in a visually attractive way.
Popups can be used in various ways. For example, they can be used to get people to sign up to your mailing list or to display additional information about your products or services. (Much like you are seeing now)
Galleries are the best way to show off pictures on your website. For example, if you have a photography or events website and want to showcase your photos then this will be the way to go.
Do you want users to book an appointment with you or schedule a Skype meeting? This is the plugin for you. It can be used so people can make appointments with you at your available time. It can also be used in a way that your clients can pay directly online for their appointment. (To use the online paying method your website must have an Online Shop and payment gateway, but if the appointments are free then this won’t be necessary).
If you want to find out more about your client before you meet, then this form can include specific questions and even do calculations. We can create your very own assessment form which the client needs to fill in so it’s easier for you when you first meet them.
If you have specific group of customers eg only loyal customers, then we recommend you use this feature. We can set up pages that are only visible to the members of a particular section of your website. You can even sell memberships and have different levels that your members have access to. You can “drip feed” them with content upon registration and that release content within a certain time frame. (To use ‘paid for membership’ plans you have to have an online store. If your memberships are free you don’t need an online store)
A blog is a great way to draw traffic to your website and keep your content refreshed in order for search engines to know that your website is not dormant. Good blogs draw a lot of traffic to your website and help you grow your customer base as the same time.
This refers to the number of pages you will need for your website, for example: Home – About Us – Blog – Contact Us.
Those are some of the more common pages. But you can add as many as you would like, for example: Products – Services – Work With Me/Us – Events – Membership etc.
The constant development in technology and our use of online resources, has led to many people globally to carry out online research of goods and services they’re interested in. This means that before engaging with the seller or service provider, modern consumers like to equip themselves with facts and options upfront.
Informative websites are those which provide web visitors with relevant and comprehensive information about the particular product(s) or service(s) a company or individual is marketing. Such sites do not include specific functionality to be able to make a direct purchase (and pay for it) on the website (i.e. having an online shop).
Companies can still achieve and provide great benefits with an informative website, the main objective of which is to direct the potential customer to take some sort of action offline, for example visit a shopping centre, make a doctor’s appointment or request a business meeting. About Us / Solutions and Blog pages are usually used for this purpose, whilst a Contact Us page provides the means for the potential customer to get in touch with the company concerned.
The great thing about web design is that it’s not ‘set in stone’. So, you can start off with an informative website and gradually build towards an online store over time (if you have a suitable product or service). Grey’s Design can partner with you in this process, by helping you with your informative website and then converting it at a later date into an online store.
An online store is a website which sells goods or services on the internet. In our modern age, having an online store is almost ‘a must’ for any business that can sell products or services without having to meet or engage directly with company staff. In fact, many buyers prefer to do business this way, because it is convenient and can be done at any time of the day.
Grey’s Design offers a wide variety of services with regard to setting up an online store. As we often tell our clients, “if you can imagine it, we can build it!” This means we help you to sell anything on your website – from a simple product, like a T-Shirt, to more advanced requirements like selling memberships with recurring payments each month.
Do be aware, however, that e-commerce websites are more complex to develop, require meticulous input from you and a keen eye for detail. It’s definitely a case of ‘one size does not fit all’ as it depends on what you need and how you wish to ensure your revenue every month.
