Here we answer some of the frequently asked questions our clients sometimes ask

What is mobile responsive web design and why is it important?

Mobile responsive design is where websites are built to adapt to any screen size. This ensures optimal viewing and usage across all devices. Responsive websites improve user experience, boost engagement, and are essential to ranking well on Google for mobile searches.

How long does it typically take to design and develop a website?

The typical website development timeframe is 2-4 months. More complex sites with extensive features take longer. We always provide personalised timescales for each project undertaken that are specific to that project's scope of work and unique requirements.

Why should I choose a custom-built website over a template or website builder?

Bespoke websites are faster, generally more secure (not open source) and allow for advanced features and functionality that are not easily achieved on website builders or when using ready-made templates. Custom sites also enable fuller SEO optimisation as any aspect of the website including how it looks and works can be customised to your needs.

How can I make my website more user-friendly?

One of the key ways you can make your website more user-friendly is to make it easy to navigate. There should be clear calls to action, and the user should know exactly who you are, what you do, and what action you'd like them to take at a glance. It also helps if the website is visually appealing, modern and professional in appearance. The user should be able to achieve most important actions on your site within 3-4 clicks. Your website should also be fast, and should have an SSL certificate in place so there are no security warnings displayed to visitiors within their browser or antivirus software.

What is SEO in web design and development, and why is it so important?

One of the most important aspects of any website is getting a steady flow of visitors coming in. Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO for short, is the practice of ensuring your website shows up as high as possible in the search results on Google and the other search engines. This is done by making sure that the correct words and phrases (keywords) are included in the right places on your website. First, keyword research is conducted to find out what words and phrases your potential customers are searching for, and these keywords are included in the right places on your website in order to have the best chance or ranking above your competitors for those searches.

What kind of support do you offer after the website is launched?

At Pedwar, we remain your point of contact long after the website has been launched. We are easy to contact, work with you collaboratively, and ensure your website runs well for months and years to come. We have a range of monthly packages available that offer varying amounts of maintenance and support for your website.

What are the benefits of mobile app development for my business?

Mobile apps for iOS and Android allow direct mobile access to your brand, products and services. They can boost engagement, sales, and loyalty. Custom apps with your brand experience increase visibility and convenience in your customers, and can also act as a bridge between your business and your clients, automating many processes and reducing admin work and calls.

How do you ensure the security of my website?

At Pedwar we follow security best practices using methods such as encryption of sensitive data, 2-factor authentication, and SSL connections for all pages of your site, which ensures a secure connection between your visitors and your website.
