Website Design

Do you own a website that you have no control over or are you looking to grow your business and take it online? Then we can help by creating the online presence your business requires. Be it Ecommerce, Room Bookings or just a catalogue website we can help.

We regularly come across businesses who have a good website, but no access to the back end. Great if you have no technical knowledge, but how can you expect to increase your enquiries or update your products. This is where our website design team come in, we can create you a brand new website from scratch or transfer your old one onto a platform like WordPress from which you can easily make changes. Our solutions are led by you and we always look to the long term. Meaning we can either control your content for you or train you in how to use the CMS (Content Management System) yourself so you can take ownership of your website. 

Shopify Marketplace

Designed in Dorset – Online Marketplace

We built Designed in Dorset as an online marketplace for makers, growers and producers in the county of Dorset. From the ground up including design, branding and the back end of the ecommerce platform, this site lets vendors sign up and add their own products and control their sales in a similar way to Etsy. 

The software takes a 10% commission from every sale automatically and handles the transactions form start to finish. This has enabled a lot of small businesses in the region to start selling their wares online without a massive investment in their own website.

Daisy Chain B – Shopify Store

We were apporached by Bex from Daisy Chain Boutique who had been selling her lovely Boho Chic dresses and shirts on Facebook and Instagram. She wanted to take the business to the next level and be able to showcase more products and keep track of stock levels and orders. Our recomendation was Shopify, an easy to use Ecommerce platform that we have lots of experience with. She had already made a start on a store but got stuck and was wasting time trying to work out the fiddly bits like stock control etc. We took the load off her hands and within 3 days had a fully functional online shop ready and witing for her to begin selling on. As with all our projects, we delivered an ongoing service of help to ensure she didn;t feel left out in the cold with a bit of complex tech. 

The Compasses

The Compasses Inn – Chicksgrove – Online Ordering for Lockdown

The Landlord from the Compasses Inn in Lower Chicksgrove suffered as we all did during lockdown and needed to find a way out of the crisis. The obvious solution was to offer takeaway meals to their customer base. This would mean getting a member of staff back into the kitchen and getting the word out there. We were asked to build an online ordering system within the existing WordPress platform to enable orders to be taken, paid for and collected at certain times of the day to allow for social distancing. The result was over £20,000 worth of online orders in two months. 

Cyrus Bradford – Lead Generation for Engineering Firm

Recently aquired Cyrus Bradford were an engineering firm specialising in repair and manufacture of Hydraulic Cylinders. Based in the North East, the company required a new website to reflet their expanding list of services and generate new leads. We built them a new website on WordPress, enabling them easy access to be able to update the webist ewith new case studies and news. We were also employed to increase leads and develop a PPC strategy which is proving successful. The company has recently taken over a new site in South Wales and we were engaged to refect this. Staff are regularly trained on the CMS to ensure they can make changes to the website.
