Award-winning website design and development with a 'no monkey business' approach
It’s not uncommon in modern day practices for companies, projects and even individuals to have their own website. With this is mind, Scruffymonkey understands the need for these websites to stand out amongst intense competition. We work with our clients from start to finish, providing advice and ideas as well as technical know-how. Whether you have an idea about what you want, or are starting completely from scratch, Scruffymonkey will guide you through the whole website design process from planning to publication.
A professional website is something that reflects our own work in our Scruffymonkey portfolio, and so we’ll make sure you are as satisfied with the product and service as we are before launching your online presence into the public domain.
Responsive Website Design
At Scruffymonkey, we speak with our clients in a language that is clear and straightforward, avoiding technical jargon and confusing terminology. Responsive website design means that your website will load clearly and effectively on any device, such as a smartphone or a tablet, so that existing and potential clients can access and interact with your website easily on the go and at their own convenience. Scruffymonkey will work with you to find a website design that is appealing to you when presented both in desktop and responsive form.
Bespoke Website Design
The purpose of having a website should never be purely for the reason of promoting your business or venture. It should also be about setting yourself apart from the competition. Sometimes, the best websites are the most simple, but if you have something more elaborate in mind for your online presence, we will work with you to show you exactly what does and doesn’t work, both from a technological point of view and from a marketing perspective.
Examples of the steps we can take to create a unique resource include setting bespoke features for your website’s functionality, for example, crafting specific business tools, setting up capacity for membership subscriptions, and enabling capability for events management. Nothing about our products or services are ‘standard’, and in creating bespoke websites for our clients, we ensure that our provision – and yours – is a cut above the competition.
E-Commerce Website Design
e-Commerce is a popular feature of the websites we design and develop with clients who wish to use their site to sell products and services online. e-Commerce allows you to process payments and transactions from a wide variety of sources, such as Paypal and Stripe. e-Commerce functionality on your website even allows you to effectively manage your stock and invoicing.
With the guidance and support of Scruffymonkey, it has never been easier for you to host your own online store to sell your product to a global audience. Of course, if you are a start-up business or if this is your first time entering the world of website design and development, the possibility of e-Commerce may be far from your list of requirements at this stage, but, with the support of Scruffymonkey, we will make sure that you can easily add this feature at a later date, thus developing your website as you take care of developing your business.
Our e-Commerce functions are fully tailored to your business requirements and follow your brand guidelines to create a truly unique store to host your products. With our expertise, you will be able to manage your products/stock online and even be able to manage your inventories and calculate shipping. With e-Commerce, the possibilities are wide-ranging, but if there’s something you want and we haven’t covered it, just ask.
CMS (Content Management System)
Scruffymonkey build all of our websites using WordPress as our preferred website platform. Through extensive experience, we believe this is the best possible platform to work with owing to its ease and efficiency of use. WordPress is simple to explore with our clients to ensure that they can interact with the platform themselves should they want or need to.
Scruffymonkey can work with clients to provide a complete content management service to ensure the update, upkeep and maintenance of everything their website has to offer, though the WordPress platform gives the client confidence to know that they can easily and efficiently make any day-to-day edits themselves should an idea come to them at a random point of their busy working day. Scruffymonkey work closely with you to ensure that you are confident in using this technology with ease, providing you all along with the reassurance that we are on hand should you need it.
