Unless we truly understand how your website needs to work for you, we cannot begin to design or build it.
With everything we do at Portcullis Digital, we place great emphasis on the ‘why’ before the ‘how’. By doing this, we can ensure that each of our solutions is crafted to deliver results in every way possible.
The websites we build are mapped out with you by one of our project managers or design team and then constructed by our in-house developers. Then we provide training and support to ensure you are both confident and competent enough to manage and maintain the content of your site to keep it relevant to your business and up to date.
We cover all aspects of web design and build so whether you’re looking for a simple brochure-style site or an eCommerce site that’s fully integrated with accounting and eMarketing systems, we can help. As people increasingly view websites from their mobiles or tablets we make sure all our designs are responsive.
Our deep-rooted understanding of Search Engine Optimisation (how your customers find you online) and Social Media marketing (how you promote yourself on Facebook and Twitter etc.) ensures that the site we build for you delivers the results you expect from it every time.
SEO and Copy Writing
What you say is just as important as how you say it. Why? Because both deliver better results.
The copy you use on your website is a reflection of you and your business: If your text is clear and simple for people to understand, they are more likely to engage with you.
Similarly, if your copy is well written and uses words and phrases that associate it with your business and other parts of your website, it will be more ‘searchable’ by search engines such as Google.
We provide two services to help:
Our copywriting service gives you access to a host of people with expertise in writing clear, simple text that your customers can understand and engage with.
Our SEO (search engine optimisation) team then takes your copy and enhances it for use on your website so you appear in Google search results for the terms for which you want to be known.
In the background, we keep this copy fresh: Search engines love new text as it shows them your website is current. We can take care of that. News and blog pages are another way to keep search engines happy…and if you struggle to find the time to write them for your business, let us help you.
Let us get the copy right, the search terms right and keep it all up to date, and you concentrate on giving all the new customers you get the best service you can!
We provide top of the range hosting hardware and the latest cloud architecture on which to run it and ensure it’s super fast, always available and totally secure.
We will look after your website, and make sure it’s protected and backed up regularly to give you peace of mind.
We also proactively monitor all our websites using state of the art automated software, so if there is ever a problem, we’ll be onto it straight away.
Support & Maintenance
Even if you’ve already got a great website, you need to take care of it. We offer security audits and regular checks on all our hosted websites, but we can also do it for sites hosted elsewhere.
We can give you an initial website audit and then produce a list of recommended actions. We can monitor your site and let you know if there is ever a problem, and fix it if you need us to. We can also do basic maintenance and updates for you on the site, and even manage your Social Media if you need help.
One of the key parts to your website is understanding how visitors are interacting with it. Are people landing on your homepage and immediately leaving, or is your Services page your most visited on your whole website?
Without Analytics data, you have no way of knowing if important information on your website is ever being seen. We can perform an initial review of your website data against your business goals and help determine if any changes or additions are needed on your website.
We can also produce an affordable monthly report on your website traffic to help you stay current with your visitor trends and spot any areas where your website could be improved.
