Although website design may seem like a simple process to begin with, it is actually quite difficult. While anyone can create something like a simple WordPress blog or similar, it takes a very specific and complex skill set to build fast, responsive and engaging websites.

With years of experience in the industry, the friendly team at Slinky Digital is here to help you get started on the path to online success.

We can help you design and build a website from scratch, or we can take your existing website and update and improve it.

Why Do I Need A Professionally Designed Website?

If you are in any sort of competitive online niche, then you can be sure that at least some of your competitors will be using top of the range web designers. They will be doing everything in their power to get the most out of their website, and this means that – over time – they will probably start to draw ahead of you and your website.

Sure, your site may be ‘okay’, or even ‘good’, but there is very little chance that it will stand up when compared to those of your competitors who have used a professional web designer. If you really want to get ahead of the pack, then you need to consider creating the ‘perfect’ website. Here at Slinky Digital, we can help you with this.

It is important to note that the perfect website is about more than just looks. It also needs to be responsive, able to cope under heavy traffic loads (which we will be aiming to drive to your site!) and optimised for search engine crawlers.

Here At Slinky Digital, We Do It All

The best thing about working with us is that we will incorporate all of the necessary elements of a successful website into your initial design. While other designers may be able to create a website which looks good and is responsive, there is a decent chance that they will miss something important. With our team of experienced web designers, SEO experts, and marketing gurus, we are your one stop shop for any website services in Perth or elsewhere in Australia.

When it comes to business, the customer is always right.

This doesn’t mean that we will do a substandard job because you ask us to. In fact, quite the opposite is true – if you ask us to do something which we don’t think is in your best interest, then we will sit down with you and explain why we don’t think that it is the right thing to do.

What it does mean is that we will do everything in our power to make sure that you get the website that you want. It doesn’t matter how long this takes us, how repetitive the design process becomes or how out there your ideas may seem, we will work with you to make sure that you are happy with the final product.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Content Management System, And Do I Need One?

A content management system, or CMS, is software, or a suite of software programs, that enable website owners to produce, manage, edit and publish content. A CMS can be used by just a single person or be set up so that multiple users and contributors can use the system.

Some might argue that a CMS is actually a website builder, and with some CMS that is the case. WordPress, for example, is a CMS, but it’s also been used to build millions of websites across the internet. Other examples of popular CMS are Drupal, Wix, Joomla, and SharePoint.

The question as to whether you need a CMS might be considered a mute one because every website could be considered a form of content management. Even if your website has been custom built from scratch by an agency, they will be using some form of CMS in order to create and manage the content. This CMS may be built into the back office, or they may be using one of the popular CMS that we mentioned previously and built your website around that.

Should My Website Have A Blog?

When this question gets asked, we actually think that is not the right question to ask. The reason for that is that simply ‘having a blog’ on your website will generate no benefits whatsoever if it is not done correctly.

There are both pros and cons in having a blog on your website, and despite what many business owners think, there is a lot more to a blog than just writing a few paragraphs every now and then. That might be ok for a private blog, but not one that is going to be associated with your business.

The first question that should be asked is ‘What purpose will a blog on your website serve?’. It can have many reasons to exist, and if it is going to be an exceptional blog then it will achieve several of them.

It should provide valuable and useful information that not only can be used by those who read it, but is so good, that they wish to visit your blog again to read more of it. Better than that is if they share your blogs posts by lining to them on their social media accounts.

On that note, it goes without saying that what you write should be as relevant as possible to your business. There no point in writing about your favourite ski resorts in Europe, if you are a local plumber. You’ll also need to add new content to your blog on a regular basis, and if your resources allow, several times a day if possible.

Blog content doesn’t need to be all text. You can add videos, audios, or images, and make posts that include several types of media. Again, this is all about engaging with your website visitors and creating content that makes them want to return. As they do, their loyalty to you and your brand should increase, and when it does, it is more likely they are going to buy your products or services when the time comes to do so.

A blog is also a great way to establish yourself, and your business, as an authority within your local community, or within your niche. It allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and experience and lets people see that you have credibility, which goes a long way to building trust.

Finally, no discussion about blogs could ignore the advantage it gives you with regards to SEO and helping your website climb the rankings. Every post you make is content Google sees but more than that, there is the metadata, opportunities to build links, and the fact that visitors remaining on your blog tells Google your website is one that people like.

Should My Web Design Be From A Template Or Custom Built?

This will very much depend on what your website’s purpose is, how much functionality you want and how much you are prepared to invest in it, both in terms of money, and time.

With templates, there is no doubt it is going to be a cheaper and quicker option than having a custom-built website. You could literally have a templated website live within minutes. That may be ok if all you want is a simple website that acts as a place holder online for your business, but beyond that, it is not going to do much to drive customers to your business, nor get it ranked on Google.

For a start, the functionality of templates is limited, plus, unless you have knowledge and skills in web design, you are not really going to be able to make that many changes to how it looks. This means your website will not be able to build your brand, and it will look much the same as all the other websites out there who are using the same template.

With a custom-built website, the cost will higher, but the rewards will far outweigh those costs. First, you will have a website that meets your exact requirements, and it will be designed to reflect and to build your brand. It will be able to incorporate functions that enhance the experience your visitors have when they visit, thus improving the chances of them becoming customers.

In relation to your website being able to rank on Google, a custom-built website will have multiple ways in which this is enhanced such as better load speeds, SEO optimisation, better customer engagement, and enhanced interaction. There is also the advantage of being able to make changes to the design if deemed necessary or desirable, at a later stage.

So, if you are serious about making it in the online space, then you need to get a decent website designed by a professional. Get in touch with our friendly team of customer service experts today to find out how we can help you grow your business online! View our web design portfolio
