Website Design

When it comes to websites we believe in clean, beautiful, uncluttered and functional design. Less is more!

People make snap judgements. It takes only 1/10th of a second to form a first impression about a person, and websites are no different. It takes about 50 milliseconds (that’s 0.05 seconds) for users to form an opinion about your website that determines whether they like your site or not, whether they’ll stay or leave.

Website Design

We use responsive design as standard, if your website doesn’t display properly on a mobile device, you could be missing out on valuable business leads. A responsive website is one that automatically changes to fit the device it’s being viewed on – and it’s fast becoming a business essential. We’re big fans of WordPress website design and, it’s our Content Management System (CMS) of choice for clients. The reasons are simple: it’s easy to use, intuitive, and the results are always beneficial.

Customised WordPress Sites

WordPress websites that are responsive across all devices, customised to your brand and built to convert. If you’re looking to sell products online then WooCommerce can be integrated to turn visitors into customers. A great eCommerce website must be both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional in order to convert visitors into customers. At 8forty we can build you a modern eCommerce website with all the latest features to enable you to look professional and sell online.

SEO Ready

The old cliche ‘there is no point having a good looking website if no one can find it’ works both ways. If you don’t have a website that is appealing to the end user and designed to convert them into customers then you are losing countless opportunities. We take great pride in our Search Engine Optimisation capabilities, we build all of our websites with basic SEO. For more competitive industries and search terms we offer extra services, we want your site to feature highly on the search engines.

Websites

that convert

Understanding your customer.

It’s all very well, getting traffic to your site, but that counts for nought if those customers aren’t being converted into sales and ultimately, revenue. When designing clients websites we make sure we understand the business and the consumer. A website must look and feel professional and users should be able to navigate with ease on what ever device they are using.
