Web Design As A Product

If you have experience with Web Design services & have ever dealt with other companies you will immediately notice a difference with Gadget Man Jay Websites.  I don't just ask for your company logo and colour scheme and chuck you up a basic website with generic content.  I believe that attention to detail makes good business.  I listen to what you have to say and see your company from your AND your customers perspective to carefully craft a website that will offer something to your customers, benefit you by increasing sales, help promote and increase interest in your products or services and develop company awareness through search engine optimisation (SEO) and social media marketing.

I treat every single client as an individual.  I don't use automate call handling or automated site building tools because I understand that no two companies are the same, no two people are the same.

Also, the web isn't just pages on a computer screen.  These days, your website needs to be dynamic, engaging and visible on many kinds of devices from smartphones, to tablets, games consoles, touch screens as well as laptop & desktop computers.  You can either take custom sites that target a specific device type such as mobile, or opt for websites with 'responsive' design that automatically adjusts its layout to suit the screen size its displayed on.

People always talk about a 'website', however there are many 'flavours' to choose from when deciding on building a site.  From mobile specific, to ecommerce, CMS to custom script, java based to HTML5.  ALL very confusing to the layman.

Here's some brief explanations of SOME of the site types we offer.

Ecommerce Website

Ecommerce websites are for people wanting to sell products or services online. Advantages of Ecommerce websites are that they are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and after initial setup, often require minimal maintenance.   For those who are too busy to add your own products we offer affordable 'Product Adding Services' where products are added for you.

We are experienced e-Commerce developers.  We have Developer Certification in Magento, Woocommerce, Virtuermart and other e-Commerce applications.  Oue experience ranges from small t-shirt sales sites with less than 50 products to large multisite installations with over 40,000 products.  We develop easy to navigate, simple to manage sites that utilise the latest SEO techniques to mazimise your exposure.  Our customers range from sites with revenu of less than £1,000pa to sites with over £10,000,000pa turnover.

MAGENTO

Magento is a major player in the e-commerce platform arena.  Powerful and comprehensive, it can help you easily present and manage thousands of products, thousands of customers and thousands of purchases.  I am a Certified Magento Developer, giving you confidence that your Magento site is created, developed and managed with competence and professionalism and complies with recommended feature and setting standards.  I have designed and built a number of sites using Magento, from small t-shirt stores to stores selling thoisand of machine parts and accesories, turning over millions of pounds a year.

Woocommerce

If you don't need such a complex e-commerce store and only have a handful of products , Woocommerce may suit your needs.  Woocommerce is an extension to Wordpress and as such isn't as complex or powerful as Magento, but provides a basic platform for selling products through your existing (or new) blog site.  I have developed over 30 Woocommerce installations for clients selling anything from pre-loved items, a fire extinguisher reseller, a US vacuum cleaner product franchise and an Italian Rotorvator's UK distributor.  Woocommerce is not recommended for more than a few hundred products as it can slow down your website.

Virtuemart

Virtuemart is an extension for Joomla!  It sits somewhere between Magento and Woocommerce in the e-commerce applications arena.  It can provide for a large or small store and can manage complex and large scale businesses.  It has great functionality and can compete with Magento, however some functionality that comes as standard with a Magento installation would require additional 'plug-ins' that can come at a cost.  If you have an existing Joomla! site or your business is an information based website service that relys heavily on content, articles and 'blog' posts, this option would suit you better than Magento.

Content Management System

Content Management System (CMS) is a type of software, usually server based, that allows for simple but highly effective site design and management facilities.  The main feature of a CMS is that you can add content without spending time formatting fonts or the look and layout.  It also allows for a very powerful selection of 'plug-ins' that can add some amazing features and functionality to your site.  A 'Template' is applied to the site which automatically sets out the way content looks.

CMS has  a 'back end' and a 'front end'.  The 'back end' is where the main configuration sits, the 'front end' is the website pages itself.  You can have access to either and depending on requirements we can set your site up for either access and train you to use whichever your more comfortable using.  This functionality allows you to add or update content articles or blog posts, remove & create new pages and manage content with ease, using familiar word processing type functionality, from any PC with an internet connection.

Gadget Man Jay Ltd can setup, configure most website tools such as Drupal, Wordpress or Joomla!  I look at what your business needs are and make a reccomendation of the product or package that will most suit your businesses needs now and future-wise.  I look at market trends and how the future online presence of your organisation will be impacted in the future.  For example, although Wordpress has the most 'users' in comparison to say Joomla!, Wordpress is a 'simple setup, simple settings' product which falls into the same category as 'free' or budget online website creation tools offered by some web hosting services.  It's a 'lightweight' website tool.  Joomla! CMS on the other hand is renowned for having the most functionality, being the most secure and offering the most wide ranging, robust and reliable features of any CMS available.  Therefore, I would always recommend Joomla! in preference to Wordpress to a small/medium business that is in the process of growth as it has a far greater capacity to expand with the business.  However, I can provide whichever system that suits your needs, including Joomla!, Wordpress, Drupal, etc at your request.

Static or Custom Website Design

Static or custom websites are also referred to as 'standard websites'.  They are websites that don't require, therefore don't include the ability for user editing or updating, differing from the functionality of a Content Managment System based website.  Static or Standard Website design is perfect for those who want a 'landing page' or advertisement type website with permenant content that has no need to be updated regularly or frequently.

Most websites use either HTML, Java or other programming language.  Some devices either block or aren't able to display some content because of programming language used.  HTML5 is the most widely accepted and supported language and Gadget Man Jay Ltd prefers to build sites with HTML5, however we do use other languages where needed to provide the full experience for customers.

TABLET & SMARTPHONE APP DESIGN

Smartphone usage has increased tenfold over the last decade and with Apples iOS success in making 'apps' a thing, any business that doesn't have at the least, a website that is 'Responsive' or automaticLly adjusts to lol good on smaller screens, can lose more businews than they realise.  Having your own app in the App Store can pull an even bigger audience!

we can now develop apps for the following platforms;

  • iOS 8 iPhone & iPad
  • Android KitKat & Lollipop
  • windows Mobile
  • Web Apps

We offer a bespoke app development service providing apps for individual platforms or packages for apps across platforms.  We can develop your app alongside your website or separately.  We can make your app standalone or directly linked to your site.

App development can be anything from a simple app promoting yourself or your business, including contact forms, google maps and directions, price lists and features, games through to a fully fledged ecommerce store,  We can connect to Wordpress, Joomla, Magento or custom HTML sites.  we are flexible and innovative, so please speak to us about your app requirements.  prices range from £1,999 and can be available in a few weeks.

Design Revitalisation & Transfer Service

The old saying goes 'If it's not broke, don't try to fix it'.  However, everything needs refreshing now and again.  If you're happy with your current website's content but are looking for a fresher or more upto date design with greater functionality, social media connections and sharing options, we offer a great affordable Site Revitalisation Design Service.  We can either transfer your sites content, images, etc to our servers and rebuild with a more useable user interface or provide updates to your current Wordpress, X-cart, Oscommerce, Magento, Drupal and CRE designs and pretty much design for any script.

In the current financial climate, budgets are tight.  Websites have become an essential tool for businesses.  Well linked to social media sources such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Linkedin, businesses can grow their customer base, literally overnight in a very cost effective way.

The initial outlay for a GOOD, WELL PRESENTED, FUNCTIONAL website can be expensive and difficult to justify, especially fo your just starting out in business, as a sole trader or self employed.  That's why here at Gadget Man Jay, I have decided to offer two options.
