Connecting your offline and online worlds

Think of your ‘digital strategy’ as your ‘sales strategy’. The days of digital playing second fiddle to your offline activities are long gone.

At the start of all our web projects, we make sure we understand the goal of your site. This includes the role it plays in your sales pipeline, and how your online and offline channels integrate with it.

We take the time to understand your audience, competitors, your USP, and what will keep you at the forefront of your sector.

And then we craft the most usable and beautiful site for your customers.

The internet is an outstanding leveler! In our opinion, never have truer words been written. Your website is your shop window, and it’s up to you to choose whether you want be budget or luxury...

Our web & ecommerce design services

Wireframes/Prototyping

User experience, or UX (as it is commonly known), can seem like a jungle of jargon. A language only developers in dark offices, powered by sticky energy drinks know.
 
The reality is, it’s all about creating a straightforward product that is simple to use, and understands its intended users.
 

It should feel as though it has been crafted specifically for YOU. 

Our well-proven process ensures we understand your audience so we can craft the best experience for them!

Mobile-optimised

Mobile phones have changed the world, the way we consume information, and the way we interact with people and businesses. Today, everyone has a smartphone.

In many countries, the number of smartphones has surpassed the number of personal computers; having a mobile-friendly website has become a critical part of having an online presence.

Designing your website to be mobile friendly ensures that your pages perform well on all devices and perform on Google.

Ecommerce

The last few years haven’t been kind to bricks and mortar retailers. Take Primark for example. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, they reported monthly sales to be around £650 million. But following forced closures in lockdown, they made nothing. Zilch. Zero. Why? They have no online store.
 
As the footfall on the high street has taken a plunge for many reasons, online stores have never done better. Our team of eCommerce experts can help you build the right strategy and the most effective store.
 

Landing pages 

Your landing pages should help increase leads and revenue.

When we create a landing page for businesses we focus on five core features on the page:

  • The title needs to explain what problem you are solving or what value you are bringing to the visitor.
  • You then need to concisely explain how you will achieve this.
  • Then, and because people really don’t read, there needs to be a simple to comprehend image/visual that will convey the solution to the visitor instantly.
  • These days having social proof that the solution or value to the users is essential, people believe other customers so include either 3rd party validation (like TrustPilot) or at a bare minimum, customer testimonials/stories.
  • And then we make it really, really easy for the visitor to become a lead… 

SEO - Being found

SEO is at its most basic, increasing both the quality and quantity of website traffic, as well as exposure to your brand, through non-paid, organic, search engine results.

We love how Moz describes SEO: It as much about people as it is about search engines themselves. It’s about understanding what people are searching for online, the answers they are seeking, the words they’re using, and the type of content they wish to consume. Knowing the answers to these questions will allow you to connect to the people who are searching online for the solutions you offer.

If knowing your audience’s intent is one side of the SEO coin, delivering it in a way search engine crawlers can find and understand is the other.

UP DIGITAL helps you with both sides of this critical coin

Best-in-class content management systems

Choosing the right content management system will be one of the most important decisions you and your business will make.
 
Fresh content needs to be fed to your website, apps, social channels, and content should be personalised or tailored to your different audience personas.
 
But equally important will be how easy the CMS is to administer? How technical are your admins? Do you want a site that is relatively locked down so editors can only build with pre-defined components, or do you need ultimate flexibility?
 
UP DIGITAL are experts in a number of platforms both for regular websites and for ecommerce platforms, and can advise on the best fit for your specific requirements.
 
 
It’s important to have a process that can adapt accordingly

It’s important to have a process that can adapt accordingly

All digital marketing agencies worth their salt should be able to articulate a process like ours. It is the basis for all good web projects. However, the way we tackle a couple of the stages are really rather special and is what sets UP Digital apart from our peers.
