The Art and Science of Web Development
We don’t just create websites, we provide solutions.
Spode Media have been designing and developing websites for local and national companies since 2013. Our experience, however, goes back much further. As the owner of Spode Media, I started building websites in the 1990’s and creating WordPress websites from 2009 and can draw from over 20 years of experience.
Quite often we find that customers come to us without a solid idea about what they want or need and are quite often overwhelmed by the technology and confused by the terminology which they are trying to base buying decisions upon. Before we do anything, we listen. This is critical in establishing the the goals customers want to achieve and then we provide solutions to meet that criteria. From establishing an initial team to communicate ideas and focus direction through to final sign-off, we ensure that the process is painless and that customers feel involved and at a level they feel comfortable with for the duration the project and beyond.
Strategy for success
Whilst having confidence and the belief that we have the necessary skills and willpower to succeed, we base our strategy on facts and statistics to prove it. For example, if we have an eCommerce website, an increase in sales is a measure of success along with other conversion metrics and level of engagement, whereas a negative trend tells us something is failing and needs our attention. Whilst not all websites sell goods, other statistics such as an increase in engagement by visitors using contact forms and signing up for newsletters on pages, is a signal of success. Collection and analysis of visitor data is one such technique which we use to measure and guide us towards a better strategy for success. Analytical data can be placed right in the dashboard providing you with immediate access to statistics, our customers are never left wondering how well their website is performing. Analytical data enables us to determine what is failing as well as what is successful and works best for us.
We are passionate about what we do, and we enjoy having customers who are equally passionate about their websites. The quality of our work sets us apart from the rest and we enjoy exceeding expectations and producing work that is both creative and artistic. We make sure that we provide the latest standards compliant code with semantic markup in order to provide accessibility across a wide range of devices and platforms.
Spode Media can give your website the look and feel that you wish to provide from your online presence – designing eye-catching pages which are designed to engage visitors using compelling copywriting and dynamic interaction. We design and build responsive websites because we know that first impressions are important no matter what size device is being used for viewing and you don’t get a second chance to impress with today’s average visitor spending less than 30 seconds on a page before making up their mind whether or not to stay.
Having a professional website that looks or behaves like a hobby website can plant a seed of doubt in less than 10 seconds.
From a clean and minimal, to an artsy and colorful – and to almost anywhere in-between. We never lose sight of the importance of a good clean user interface because the most critical aspect of designing a website is to ensure that visitors can find their way around your website with speed and with ease. We take care to avoid cluttered interfaces which distract your customer, causing your message to be lost or diluted.
We design and build websites which are unique and each website is built specifically for each project – because you and your company are unique.
Ease and function
Not only do we ensure that your visitors can find their way around your website, we also make sure that when they arrive, they are presented with the functions they need to to fulfill the purpose of their visit. Our priority is to ensure that your visitors are able to get what they come for and come away with a positive experience. Engaged visitors are more likely to become return visitors.
