More than web design, we have 25 years business experience
The vast majority of web creators are designers and coders are great at prettifying and coding things.
A website, web designer or developer isn’t enough anymore because there isn’t just one place to find your prospects and customers.
When clients first approached us they spoke frankly about their business and what they really needed was to attract more customers, earn more sales and generate more business.
With over 25 years of real business experience (yes, we’ve worked in marketing departments, pick and pack orders in a warehouse, made cold calls, been face to face with unhappy customers, been in the mail room and made coffee for the boss) and having developed over 100 websites, we have business experiences you will not find amongst most web designers and web developers.
Most of our clients are based in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayrshire but we also have web clients in Fife, London and Oxford.
Additionally, we are a commercial web partner with Adobe Business Catalyst (a $17bn company similar to Apple and Microsoft) licensed to use their business web platform.

Improve or upgrade an existing website
We worked with a company in Oxford and improved their existing website by upgrading their website with new website functionality.
We conducted keyword research to identify what people were searching for and then created web page content to help the client rank for these search terms and generate more website traffic.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Websites
SEO or search engine optimisation is the art and discipline of ranking a website near the top of the search engines. To do that a website requires :
- Extensive keyword research

Website design questions
The question every business owner asks is how much does a website cost?
We do not have a set price list as every business has different needs so a website can vary from £2000 to £20,000.
Website design costs vary due to the following criteria:
- Design hour costs

- Keyword and competitor research costs
- Creating content for web pages costs
