Website Design and Development Services

Website Design

Every business needs a secure online presence that combines beautiful design with seamless functionality and an effective user experience. We can help you create the marketing tool you and your customers need.

What makes a great website?

40% of people abandon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load

When a prospective customer or client visits your site, the way it’s designed and the way that it’s written should reflect you and your business.

The best websites are ones that load fast, look great, are simple to use, and allow prospects to do what they need to do. This might be submitting a contact form, buying a product or following a multi-step process.

It needs to work well on as many different devices as possible, especially mobile phones which 96% of all adults in the UK now own and use every day for internet browsing.

Why is a great website so important?

It only takes users 50 milliseconds to form an opinion about your website, which determines whether they’ll stay or go

Unlike a social media profile, your website is your own patch of land on the internet – you should have full control over it without limitations.

The visual design or “user interface” of the site should excite your visitors but not detract from what they are trying to do.

If your website is slow, for example – a WordPress site that is built on a clunky theme or with lots of plugins – this can make people leave your site before their journey has even begun.

Similarly, if the website development is not optimised for mobile devices, you risk giving mobile visitors a poor user experience and losing their potential custom.

Your Web Design Agency

38% of people will not engage with a webpage if the content or layout is unattractive

So often when working with clients, we discover that they have a great business that’s let down by a poor website. There is no point in us bringing lots of visitors to your site if the experience they receive when they get there doesn’t meet their expectations.

Whether you use a website builder like Wix, SquareSpace or Shopify; a blog site built in WordPress or even a bespoke website with a content management system built from scratch, we can help you improve it. We can also build a new site for you, from scratch.

By choosing Knapton Wright to take care of your website design and development, you can rest assured that your business will be safe in the hands of a team that not only understands what your customers are looking for online, but one that fully appreciates the journey a user takes from the search engine or social media platform right on through to adding something to their digital baskets in your online store.
