Simple DIY web maintenance with a CMS

For anyone familiar with MS Word or similar, you'll find making edits simple. All you need is a computer connected to the Internet and you can make edits to your website. Your edits go live the instant you hit the SAVE button, or at the moment of your choice. That means no more waiting while your web designer adds your alterations to their workflow!
Plus we use a CMS that was developed right here in New Zealand - the same one that ran the entire Barack Obama election campaign site, easily handling millions of hits per day, yet so simple that anyone on the staff can make changes with it.

Want your website to be higher in search rankings?

There isn't a magic way of getting an instantly high PageRank website - it takes constant care and gradual tweaking.

Google Search Optimization

Achieving results with your website

Great web design is one of the best ways for a company to maximize its online marketing efforts. Complementing our web design, we also offer search engine optimization to our clients as an external specialist service, so that they can fully benefit from having an expert in the field optimise their site. This is the best way to drive traffic to client websites, making product sales and brand recognition really happen for them.

Effective website design converts prospects browsing the website into actual customers. As a web design company, we utilise a variety of people during our web design process, like graphic designers, copywriters and marketing analysts. The websites conceived by them employ all the elements of effective advertising, like persuasive language and intuitive website layout. The website designs include both functionality and suitability for their intended audience. Our simple yet powerful content management system (CMS) makes certain that websites are easily updated on a regular basis, and that it can scale with the company's needs as it grows.

Our websites are built to the latest web standards in order to be accessible to all standards-compliant browsers. All websites built employ the web languages of CSS and XHTML. The reason for using these languages is that the sites have faster loading times, require far less effort for  the upkeep of the site, and have better compatibility across multiple browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Facebook for Business

Using facebook for businesses is a good idea if it is done out properly. It is free to use, but can be expensive if done badly.

Every day, millions of Facebook members log in to their accounts to update and stay updated. It is however, no longer just a way to keep in touch with mates. Facebook is used by almost all brands, companies and small businesses to leverage their sales and marketing campaigns. The higher the number of 'Likes' on a fan page, the more popular it becomes among all users of Facebook. 

With Facebook search, results are compiled according to the number of likes a page has. If you search for a business or the name of a company, the results are shown in the order of the most to least 'Likes'. You even get shown how many of your friends like the page. This shows that Facebook fans play a large role in your page's visibilty and really matter to your business.

To find out more about getting your fan page visitors to 'Like' your business page, see our Social Media and Social Outbreak Design page.
