Design. Build. Enjoy.
What do you want your website development to accomplish?
When approached to develop a clients website the first question we ask is "what do you want the website to do for you?"
We have clients who have invested heavily into a new website because it looked 'nice', the branding was eye catching and friends and colleagues liked it. After the initial boost of 'launch traffic' it performed the same as their original website....few hits, little engagement and no enquiries .
We call this fluffy marketing, nice to look at but no sales leads provided...your website development must be aligned with sales.
Far North approach a website development project from a sales point of view, we look at your current customer base and the prospects you want to engage with. We research the markets you currently serve and the industries you'd like to break into. If you want to attract them, you have to walk, talk and look like them!
In addition to bespoke websites we develop sites powered by WordPress, long known to be the number one content management system (CMS) in use online. We utilise industry leading plug-ins to encourage and capture email addresses feeding into marketing plans. We feed into Google Analytics and Jetpack stats providing you site metrics, you need to know what pages work well, right?
Our sites are social media friendly and if you haven't a presence yet we can create one, link to the platforms and train you in the upkeep. Alternatively you could join our social media management community where we manage this for you, boosting your online presence in areas such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. We'll even implement a SEO plug-in allowing you to manage this in-house.
Our website development projects always involve training, you shouldn't have to go back to your website developer every time you want to add a post/page/article. But if you would prefer for us to help when required, not a problem, we love to see your site grow, generate leads and of course, customers!
