Why do you need a website?

Having a website for your business is essential in today’s digital age. Not only does it give your customers a way to easily find information about your products or services, but it also helps to establish credibility and professionalism.

A website allows potential customers to learn about your business and what you have to offer before they ever even step foot in your physical location or make a phone call. 

As the first point of contact for many potential customers, your website is the perfect opportunity to develop your online presence and bring in that all-important traffic. At Sood, we provide bespoke web design that offers high functionality, forward-thinking creativity, and a thorough understanding of your business.

To develop a website that truly reflects your business, we will engage in open and honest dialogues with you to fully understand who you are and what you do. We are committed to understanding you and your business on a deep level in order to build a website that perfectly represents its identity and values.

Our Process

The website development process is multifaceted and involves a range of different skills. From building the website to writing its content and optimising it for SEO, this process takes planning, time, and effort to carry out.

You’ll be involved from the very beginning of the process so that our work accurately reflects your vision and falls in line with your business objectives.

Together, through open discourse, we discuss the direction of the website project to create an effective plan to meet your marketing objectives.

What functions do you want your website to provide? What should the branding look like? Are there any special features you want to implement? All relevant questions will be discussed here so that your website accurately reflects your vision and attracts your target audience.

We will also undertake competitor research to better understand your industry, how your business currently fits within it, and how we can create a website that excels against the competition. All of this information will be placed into a coherent, focused, and organised web design strategy tailored to your brand’s goals.

The work begins. Our creative team will take your design and place it into a responsive web platform. Your site will be effortlessly usable on both desktop and mobile platforms. User experience is a top priority, meaning we always have the user journey in mind during development. Users need your website to be easy-to-navigate to stay engaged and turn into customers.

If you decide that your website should be SEO-optimised – which we recommend – our content writers will incorporate this into every page. Targeting specific keywords and audiences relevant to your business will bring in more traffic.

Don’t worry if you have content you would like to transfer from your existing website, or that you would like to write yourself, we can use this after optimising it to better target the relevant audience.

Your website can be aesthetically pleasing with engaging content, but that won’t matter if it isn’t usable. Constant testing ensures every page works exactly how it should. This is also where we test compatibility, ensuring your website works perfectly on all browsers and devices of every shape and size.

The opportunity to bring your business online shouldn’t be controlled by a faceless company offering poor package options at inflated prices, lacking proper customer support, and giving you little-to-no freedom to experiment with your hosting.

At Sood, we will fully engage with you to discuss exactly what you need from our web hosting packages. Our commitment to full transparency means you won’t have to worry about any nasty surprises. You let us know what you want, and we deliver. Simple as that.

Feel secure in the knowledge that all of our cloud hosting packages come with (optional) daily backups as well as off-site weekly backups. Rest easy in the knowledge that all website updates will be securely protected and updated.

We’re also proud to share that our packages offer 100% green carbon-neutral hosting platforms. Don’t worry about sacrificing reliability – they still maintain 99.99% uptime. While most web hosting services are highly energy-intensive, our environmentally sustainable hosting helps our clients minimise their impact on the environment and reduce their digital carbon footprint.

Still on the fence? Join the rest of our clients who have saved up to 50% compared to their previous web hosting plan.

Why invest in your online presence?

With the evolution of modern technologies, businesses of every size are doing everything they can to keep up with their competitors. Brick-and-mortar businesses are imploding, and with the recent shutdown of stores such as Toys “R” Us, more and more companies are turning their business models online, highlighting the importance of website development.

As well as opening your business up to potential customers, a website can improve your internal operational efficiency. By delivering a focused, structured, and organised marketing strategy, we can determine how best to use your website to revitalise how your business works.

When our long-term client Granite House transitioned exclusively to online forms under our guidance, their workflow became much more streamlined. Additionally, operational documents can be hosted on the websites we develop. Your business needs a streamlined workflow to run as efficiently as possible, and our websites can facilitate this.

As we work, you’ll be kept in the loop every step of the way, and we’ll include as many of your ideas and insights as we can alongside our expert advice to maximise your online presence.

Case Study: RJ Woodworking

Even the most well-established businesses can greatly benefit from a strong online presence. When they came to us, RJ Woodworking had 30 years of industry experience behind them, but their website was failing to generate leads. They needed our help.

Founder Richard asked us to redevelop his website with a focus on attracting and retaining customers. We planned and executed all aspects of website development, including content writing, product writing, and quote design.

Each client is different, so we prioritise collaboration to achieve an end result that accurately reflects their needs. We brainstormed feature ideas with Richard to determine which elements would serve his customers best. Based on his input, we implemented a quick quote system, finance calculator, an in-stock and a backorder page.

Creating long-lasting relationships with our clients and seeing them succeed is our greatest quality. We are thrilled to have witnessed Richard’s business continues to grow as a result of its new website.

Within a year of the website launch, leads increased by 1270%. Due to the success of this project and the positive relationship we cultivated with Richard, he let us take the reins of RJ’s social media management. Through an invigorated social media strategy and bi-weekly email marketing campaigns, we grew RJ’s social media leads by 320%.

“Since working with Sood, we’ve seen an increase in website traffic and a significant increase in sales resulting from it. Our social media presence is much better – we’re gaining followers all the time. Nothing’s too much trouble and we’re very pleased with everything they’ve done for us.”

Frequently asked questions.

All of our websites are built on WordPress – a highly accessible and versatile platform through which our clients can easily maintain and update their websites independently. WordPress is incredibly search engine-friendly and comes with thousands of additional plugins whose tools and features dramatically boost the functionality of any website. We utilise Elementor for WordPress, which utilises a simple click-and-drag design system that any client can easily use to make simple edits while our web design team handles the more technical aspects.

Ultimately, WordPress gives us complete control over the design and functionality of a website, allowing us to craft ones that are distinct and tailored to each client’s individual needs.

Yes, in most cases we use WordPress along with the Elementor website builder to create our sites. These are extremely accessible as they allow the user to use a simple drag & drop technique to make any changes they would like. Upon completion, we will provide you with a handover guide and video tutorials on how this is done, and will always be here to support you if you come across any problems.

Every website is different and will include a different variety of plugins and features depending on its purpose. We will give you an estimate on the cost of your website after an initial meeting where we discuss what you would like to incorporate. We do not display our prices here as each project is tailored to perfectly match the specifications of the client.

Yes, we do! We need to understand your end objective and work out what was good and bad about your previous website. We work with you to come up with a plan, user flows, and custom designs to help you achieve your objectives.

If you do not have any objectives, we can help you to create some based on the reasons why you want to redesign your website.

If you need our help, we are here for you. We provide regular support and are always here if something goes wrong.

Once the website is handed over to you, it is completely yours. You can use our video guides and written directions for guidance on how to manage it.

The website belongs to you, and we encourage you to take care of it long-term. However, if you don’t have the time to do so, we can certainly help!

Yes, we can convert your existing website into WordPress to make it easier for you to use and edit. We can either keep the design the same or give your website a revamp, guided by our graphic design team.

The time it takes for your website to be developed will vary depending on the number of pages and the complexity of the design. We will be able to give you an estimate once the initial design is completed. We work closely with you at every step of the development process so the website accurately reflects your vision.

We work with many different businesses, from SMEs to large corporates. Building long-lasting relationships with clients is one of our core values, so if we can help you out within your budget, it would be our pleasure.

If it’s not possible to create what you need within your budget, we can openly discuss the services we can provide for you.

Yes, we ensure all the websites we develop are fully responsive on all devices. These days, the majority of people access the web via their phones, so it is vital that your site works properly when displayed on a variety of screen sizes. This is a standard part of our website development process, so we do not charge extra for this.

Of course! If you have already secured the domain for your website, we are happy to take over and begin building for it. If you need help with this or are unsure about the process of buying a domain, we can assist you.

Check out barruko.co.uk – a domain and web service provider that is part of the Sood group – to see the list of domain names we have available.

If you host through us, there will be hosting charges which we will discuss with you when you choose your package. There may also be costs for photos if you are unable to provide them yourself. However, we will always do our best to use stock images where possible. No extra costs will come as a surprise to you as we will always make everything crystal clear!
