Website Design Cornwall

Located in Redruth, Cornwall, Exell Web Design specialises in producing high quality, responsive web sites for businesses, clubs and organisations at a very competitive rate.

In the last couple of years the way we use the internet has changed dramatically. Desktops and laptops used to be the most popular way to access the internet. Today the most popular way of accessing the internet is via mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones and as such, the way in which web sites are built has also changed.

What is a responsive website?

A responsive website will automatically resize itself to adapt to which every device it is displayed on, making it very user friendly.

Older sites do not have this functionality and therefore users will find it more difficult to access the information on your website via their mobile phone or tablet.

If you are a business and have competitors who have a responsive websites then you could be losing business and potential customers.

Google, the world's favourite search engine, announced that from the 21st April 2016 mobile friendliness will be a ranking criteria for websites listed on Google. This means if your site isn’t responsive you could drop in the rankings.

If you’re not sure if your web site is responsive then enter your web site address into Google’s Mobile Friendly Test.

 

Wordpress Powered Websites

Content Management Systems (CMS)

If you are planning to have a web site that you would like to update regularly then a site with a Content Management System such as WordPress may be the way to go.

If you are planning to have a web site that you would like to update regularly then a site with a Content Management System such as WordPress may be the way to go.

WordPress sites provide their owners with essentially a back office area where you can upload photos and create and edit pages. It’s fairly simple to use and requires little or no training to get started.

WordPress sites are very popular and extremely versatile. There are thousands of plugins available, which act a bit like apps on your mobile phone. This allows you to build different functions into your site. Many web designers like WordPress because it they don’t have to spend time updating their client’s sites.

As wonderful as WordPress undoubtedly is it does have some disadvantages editing the look of your site for example, can be tricky. My feelings on WordPress is that it’s a trade-off between design and functionality.

If you are only planning to update your site every so often then I would recommend a standard web site.

Why Choose Exell Web Design?

Whether you’re based in Cornwall or in another part of the UK, I can provide you with a professional, reliable and affordable website design service.

As I work primarily from home and I don’t have the expensive overheads that design agencies have and this allows me to keep my rates as low as possible.

I also feel I have a unique perspective when it comes to web design. My background is in online marketing and therefore I approach every website that I build from the viewpoint of the end user and how easily the site is likely to be found on Google. It’s all very well spending thousands on a web site but if nobody can find it, it’s a waste of time.

Once your site is built I am happy to update it for you. I only charge for the time I spend on the update, which in most cases takes minutes rather than hours. Most people I speak to that are able to update their own sites don’t because they can’t remember their password or can’t remember how to do it or it just takes too long. Let me take the hassle of it out for you. Just simply email me the update and I’ll get it done.

I like to think of myself as friendly and approachable so if you just have an idea at this stage or would just like a chat about what options are available to you, then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
