What we can offer. . . .
Web design is the planning and creation of websites. This includes the information architecture, user interface, site structure, navigation, layout, colours, fonts, and imagery. All of these are combined with the principles of design to create a website that meets the goals of the owner and designer. Design is a key part of web design. This includes both the design principles: balance, contrast, emphasis, rhythm, and unity and the design elements: lines, shapes, texture, colour, and direction. By putting these things together Spyda’s Web creates wonderful websites.

oCntent Management Systems – are web based systems that enables you to change the content on your site, whenever you want. The advantage of having a CMS is that you do not need to have any coding experience to change the content on your website. In the long run this will save you money and time as you do not have to wait for a web developer to make simple content changes. At Spyda’s Web each CMS we produce is custom built for each client. This makes the system really easy-to-use, and means that you don’t have to take a degree to learn how to update your site (as you do with open-source systems). Many people will ask us just how easy is our CMS and we will say very easy. In fact it is as simple as typing your changes on the screen, like you would in Word and then clicking “Update”. It could not be simpler and we pride ourselves on being able to get anyone up and running on our CMS in no more than 2 hours.
We have all seen the recent demise of high street shops, yet in difficult times online shops are thriving. Buying on the internet gives the consumer discounts that they cannot get in the high street and so is becoming more and more popular every year. Ecommerce websites also give the seller the opportunity to service a wider audience then they would on a high street. We see this as a win win situation. However as more people use the internet to buy the competition is becoming fierce. This means it is important to have professional ecommerce website design to help you stand out from the crowd. It is important to grab the attention of the consumer and convince them you are the one to buy from, that is how we can help you.

The text that appears on your site is a vital step in the optimization of your website. We can review your text and update it to ensure it is search engine as well as user friendly.

In addition to the body text of your site we can also write articles that are relevant to your business and add them to your site as well as distribute them throughout the internet to increase your site’s popularity which in turn increases its ranking. This is an important part of search engine optimization as search engines like to see fresh and new content. We are capable of producing copy on any topics as we always research the topics that the content is about (obviously, if the article is on PHD level astrophysics we may have to charge a little more).
