Is your website the
Best It Can Be?
We find that many new sites we build are deployed with features and abilities that our clients were unaware of when they engaged us to work with them. Similarly, some of the clients that approach us who have had a website for many years, are unaware of the lost revenue and clients they have missed because they didn’t have the correct setup of their website, or were allowing visitors to access the products and or services they seek. The problem here is that our clients were designing platforms for themselves, and not their audiences they wanted to attract and convert.
The web is a large pool of resources and tools, however it also presents the greatest risk to businesses. As the connection between so many systems used within business, it is the main channel that hackers and malicious software utilise to access your networks and data, and therefore requires the greatest of monitoring and support.
Your website is an organic element of your business that needs to change as your business does. Additionally, the software and hardware your site resides on also need attention and to be kept updated to ensure that your site will be secure and current to your business and users’ needs.

Single Landing Page
Some businesses only need a single page to map out their message and basic info for clients. With a few images, lines of text and contact forms, you can easily make a client capture and engagement tool that will generate results
Selling things online is the new storefront, and has been for some time. You can sell small digital products, complete homes with land, or everything in between. A good payment gateway for your business can be 100% automated.
Magazine sites are informational, and will include text, images, media and more to engage with and retain users. Often these types of sites are updated regularly and will draw users daily providing high traffic to well written content.
Blogs & Vlogs
While platforms like Tik Tok and YouTube have a niche in this market, converting views is done from the website that can house all your materials and content. Correctly formatting a site to meet users needs is key.
Commonly for artists, photographers, academics, and other creators; a portfolio site can display and catalogue your works into formats that are easily accessible for visitors to appreciate. Offering a gallery or library platform that will enable users to fully appreciate your works.
Landing pages are highly specific pages with content and Calls To Action that will inform and convert your site visitors into sales. Having a specific page for a product, service or offering will enable swift navigation and ease of SEM into the page for rapid user conversion.
Social Media Sites
Also known as community and discussion sites; a good social site can encompass a large base of users and allow for greater communication and education via utilising visitors as the educator or seller of products and services.
Being able to provide a listing site or a directory of specific products and services providers will not only attract visitors but will also attract sellers and providers. The essence being that these sites are more facilitators for greater needs.
Update Your Site
We are often contacted to fix issues and repair out of date platforms.
It is vital to ensure you have a proper management plan for maintaining and managing your websites.
A full review of your site will ensure that key areas are updated, while also ensuring that you have a future-proofed platform.
Since your site was deployed, have you updated it? Have you made new content? Changed details in your business that are now outdated on your website? Selling new products, or, stopped selling others?
A common issue we are often approached with is updating websites that have been long outdated. From old code that is vulnerable to attack and hacking, broken links and media load issues, old content and expired modules. All these issues, and more, can have a sever impact on your search rankings as well as for your site visitor credibility.
Keeping your websites updated should be a mostly automated process, however there will be some inevitable areas that will require more attention and possible ongoing monitoring and housekeeping.
Review & Plan
Important phase in the development cycle of any website, app or digital portal. Market and competitor analysis, research target users, features, flows and user journey.
Design - UX - UI
User experience (UX) design and user interface (UI) design are crucial to the success of an app. Our design teams delve deep into the psychology of design and user research.
The development process will vary depending on your project. Using agile and cascading or waterfall development methods ensures milestones are met and the platform is future proof
Upkeep of software and hardware is an ongoing process to ensure security and continuity. A well planned audit and maintenance schedule will ensure uptime and function.
Website Update Cycle
Our development cycle for website updating is similar to developing a new website. As it requires some of the same steps to evaluate and deploy stages in a sequence to ensure that the site is a properly formatted and deployed site.
Below are the seven stages of our website update plan. Not all of these stages need to be employed for a site update, however we like to be sure and certain when deploying.
- Who is the site/app/software for?
- What do they expect to find or do there?
- Is this website’s primary aim to inform, to sell, or to amuse?
- Does the website need to clearly convey a brand’s core message, or is it part of a wider branding strategy with its own unique focus?
- What competitor sites, if any, exist, and how should this site be inspired by/different than, those competitors?
The strategy for development can vary widely from project to project. While we base all our projects in proven strategy systems, we generally need to specifically adjust for each client; as no two projects are the same, just as their businesses differ.
Often our clients get caught up in the design phase of a project. Wanting it to look a certain way. This is fine, if you have a defined style and branding guide. However, your clients and guests you wish to attract may have different tastes, so it’s vital you’re designing for them, and not the colour scheme of your own kitchen.
The development cycles, (Yes, plural) are an orchestrated series of smaller projects, embedded into other larger projects. The stages of development are the result of proper planning and design. The strategy will define the best practices for development to occur.
Test & Launch
These are usually failed areas from other projects we take over. Simply getting to this stage is quite the task. Correct testing all through the design and development stages will ensure that the project will be a success. When we deploy a project into testing, it’s done in a manner to break the project. This way we can push the project to beyond its typical limits and ensure that you have capacity for typical use.
Some will view the usual social media posts as all they do for promotion of their products and services. Promotion, is an organic thing. It never stops. If planned correctly, you can automate a significant part of it. However, inevitably you will need to get your marketing plan so as to keep your clients engaged and your guests able to find you swiftly.
Our most common projects are renewing and updating old and long outdated websites and apps. Often as a result of a complete code failure or errors as well as security risk and vulnerability. With a proper maintenance plan, you can save thousands of dollars by not having to re-do your entire digital presence and also to ensure your clients and guests have the best experience with your platforms.
Enhance Your Site
Are you in need of new features and functions for your website?
Do you want to start selling products and services, or live chat with your site visitors, track and monitor analytics or deploy more comprehensive features?
As your site grows, or is surrounded up updated competitor sites; it’s vital to ensure you’re exceeding your visitor expectations and delighting them with simple yet visually engaging features and functions.
Enhance Your Site
As you read this your competitors are developing or deploying new features and functionalities on their platforms to convert site visitors into sales.
And they’re doing this every single day. Where are you in the cycle of enhancing your site to ensure you are converting the most clients from your online presence. You need to be looking at your clients needs and expectations, and ensuring your site is meeting and where it can; exceed their needs and wants. This will convert into more site visitors and more converted sales.
Review & Plan
What features is your current site missing? What are visitors needing to be able to convert into sales?
Do you need visually appealing elements like scrolling banners, live chat modules, or something more?
Design for your users. It’s simple. Yet, is often lost in the wrong deployments of features or functionalities. How many buttons and fields do users need to action in order to close a sale?
How do users interact with your site?
Development with a future-proof mentality will ensure that your site is suited to what your clients are coming to your pages to find. Make it easy for them. Deploy elements in your site that will appeal and guide them into the funnels you need.
There is little use in a site that has a bug, or vulnerability. Or has outdated software, broken links, or even a ‘sppeelling’ mistake.
Maintenance is key to ensuring your investment is generating revenues and retaining new site visitors.
Basic Enhancements – Massive Impact
The simplest of enhancements can have the biggest of impacts on your website’s conversion rates. By deploying a client engagement tool such as a live or AI assisted chat module, some of our clients have seen a 66% increase in site revenue.
Utilising a greater media and visually attractive layouts, can not only retain site visitors interests, but can correctly guide and inform a site visitor into a client.
Here are some of the common features we are asked to deploy for our clients:
Live Chat - AI Assisted
There are many modules that can be swiftly deployed that will allow potential clients to contact you swiftly to seek answers to questions that are holding back their purchases. Integrating with platforms such as Facebook or Instagram, you can connect with clients in real time and convert them into sales, or deploy more advanced chat bots that will analyze the users questions as well as page view history to direct them to the areas they need to complete a purchase or further engage with your services.
Creating an account for your clients will allow them to complete sales and automate a lot of their business engagements with your site. By having a client login, you are adding them to your client pool, and increasing your short and long term potential for revenue. Also operating a single pint of user analytics to see how, what and why your users will interact with your site and products the way they do. Sign on with social media account credentials, or username and password tools; the results will have a client onboarding process that will assist in future sales to that client.
Deploying a calendarised booking system that is integrated with your CRM and services tools, will automate and streamline your client engagement and deliver you an increased workload and ability to convert site users. Having a tool where a user can select a time and date for a call, appointment, service and more, will see an optimised workflow for your business and staff.
Deploying videos, audio recordings, ebooks, guides and more will see a greater use of your site as a resource and trusted information to your clients. A video is a lasting tool that can say and show a lot more to clients that a block of text. Enabling your YouTube, Vimeo, and other media channels to deploy into your site will allow you to quickly lead site users to the right information and sales, as well as reducing your time replying to emails and client enquiry.
Lead & Enquiry Forms
From simple user forms capturing name, email and message, to complex multi-page and conversational forms; your website can be an automated virtual assistant if configured correctly to ensure you’re capturing all your clients needs. Simple fields can get the basics and allow for beginning a conversation with your potential clients. However by drilling down into more of who your client is, what they need, what they’re needing ‘it’ for, when they need it, and a multitude of other data points; you can quickly funnel your client enquiries into automated responses as well as sales funnels that illustrate to clients that they’re needs are heard and addressed.
Adding some fancy transitions and animations to your site will capture the users eye and instill a sense of quality and assurance to your web presence. Utilising the correct code in the right way will also aid in directing user traffic to the calls to action in your site as well as the onboarding and product/service sales funnels created within your site. Simple visual ques and tools have proven to be an advantage to users staying on your site as well as directing them to the right areas for sales and inquiry.
