Let us develop your online presence with a stunning and carefully designed website.

1. Content Marketing

BEYOND AESTHETICS:
Your website’s content needs to resonate with your customers or clients when they arrive on your pages.
This can be achieved by promoting your company via various visual and text based materials, conveying what you are about and who you serve in an authentic way. 

Content creation and management

LIME Marketing Agency will work with you to craft website content that best describes your business. 
I’m here to help with copywriting or you can supply your own material, including photos.

Redesign of existing websites

It is possible to change the appearance of your current website or transition it to a different content management system. Let’s talk if you’re not fully satisfied with your current website and its performance. 

2. Website hosting and content management

In order for websites to be live on the internet, they need to be stored (hosted) on special servers. There are a myriad of hosting providers to choose from.  
LIME Marketing Agency has a preferred webhosting provider, or can work with your existing company.  
Most respectable hosting companies now provide secure hosting facilities (HTTPS), so you don’t have to worry about the dreaded ‘Not secure’ sign in the web address bar. 

Email

It is best practice to have a business email address associated with your domain name.
I would also ensure your business email is redirected to your personal email so that you can have immediate access rather than having to log in separately to another account to check your mail. 

Content management system (CMS)

When it comes to managing the content of your site, WordPress is the chosen platform of LIME Marketing Agency.
However, if you have or prefer a different system, I may be able to be of assistance. 

Site hit statistics

I can connect your website to Google Analytics to give you an overview of clicks to your site and monitor how the site traffic grows.
This will also show which pages perform well in search engines. 

3. Digital Marketing

As a digital marketing agency, my aim is to help your business stand out from the competition, bring you new clients and grow your company. 
I would do this by ensuring your website is up to date with current design trends,is fast and discoverable by your target clients.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Having a pretty looking and functional website is just the start of a successful online presence.
Your site needs to be organised and developed in a manner that makes it easy for search engines like Google to find it and rank it according to specific criteria.
This is where research and experience of search engine optimisation is vital and can help get your site higher up the search results.
Disclaimer: Although there are no guarantees that rankings will happen as algorithms are complex and depend on many factors. However, I will strive to use my skills to make your website as visible and discoverable as possible. 
  • Local SEO: LIME Marketing Agency specialises in local search engine optimisation to help your business appear in local search results. 
  • Google My Business: an essential part of local SEO is a service provided by Google that integrates with their maps. 

Devon Web Design - Your Questions Answered

Who I Work With

I help small businesses and sole traders who either don’t yet have a website or will work together with you to make changes to your existing website to produce results. 

About Me

I’m Andrea, a passionate advocate of local web design and have been building websites since 2013. Technology has vastly changed since then, but the fact remains that those businesses that have a strong online presence gain customers, retain them and grow.

Location

The company is based in Paignton, Devon and focuses primarily on serving the surrounding areas of Torquay, Brixham and Newton Abbot. 
However, due to the nature of the business, I can help you regardless of your geographical location. I’d love to hear from you to discuss your web design needs. 

FAQs

Not necessarily. If you are content with your existing client base and have enough business through word of mouth or other means, then having a website may not be essential for you. However, you can still gain from a website to showcase your company and keep your customers updated. 

Simply put, you are more in control over your web presence if you have a website. It’s not unheard of for companies to go out of business because Facebook decides to shut down their page. Also, it’s a lot easier to organise your pages on a website and provides a more user-friendly point of contact. Nevertheless, Facebook can be useful to drive traffic to your website.

Yes, for most small businesses a single page site can be adequate. However, if you want your site to be Google friendly and have a more rounded storefront where you can have a gallery display and add regular news articles, a full website is a better choice.

Even though you can build a website very quickly and cheaply on Wix and similar platforms, you’ll soon run into limitations. If you’re not a web designer or have coding experience and want to add further elements on your site, you may not be able to do so easily, as off-the-peg website builder programs are only customisable so far. Besides which there’s probably a million other websites out there, looking just like yours except for the text. 
Working with me would mean you get a bespoke website and I can help you with further changes as you see fit. 
I wish it were that easy! There’s a whole industry (search engine optimisation – SEO) devoted to the art of getting sites to be visible in searches. It’s always best to discuss your goals with your web designer as they will have skills in this area.

It really depends what you’re looking for. I charge £199 for simple one-page sites, but the price will reflect the complexity of design and services. See my Services page for more details. Alternatively, contact me and see what I can do for you.

Yes. There will be at least the annual cost of renewing your domain name (internet or web address) which costs around £10 and a monthly hosting fee which can be anything from £5 to £30 depending on the complexity of the hosting and whether it’s paid monthly or annually. You also need to think about site maintenance, troubleshooting and development of the website.

Yes of course. The more creative elements you can bring with you the better.
Unfortunately I’m not a graphic designer and don’t provide logo design services. I can, however, create a simple word logo if required or recommend you other talented designers’ services.
