Hi! I'm Andy from Blue Monkey Web Ltd (SEO expert, Web developer, Consultant)
I have been in the web design and marketing industry for over 12 years and have worked for many businesses small and large throughout the UK.
I run a small web design and development agency, based near Brighton. We have low overheads so are able to offer highly affordable solutions without compromising on quality. We can also offer a much more personal service than the bigger companies and offer more security and support than a freelancer.
WEB SITE DEVELOPMENT
We have developed a simple method of site development that allows you to be involved right from the start.
Graphic Design Phase
Sample layouts will be provided for your feedback and approval, once these are approved we can then move on to the next stage.
Website Development / Coding Phase
Programming / Coding
All website development programming/coding to run any special features/visitor interactivity on your website is completed and tested.
Website Pages Based upon your contract and the final design you selected, are created.
Browser Compatibility Testing
Your website is tested on a variety of the leading operating systems and browsers to insure proper display and functionality.
Dead Link Check
A thorough check for misdirected links and missing files is performed just prior to as well as after the launch of the website.
Forms / Programming
Any E-mail contact forms and/or programming features included in your project are tested to confirm they are functioning as required.
All necessary website files and scripts are copied to your domain and databases are setup.
After the website is live, any interactive programming and scripts are tested to verify proper function. Since the design and testing phase often occurs on a different server, it is very important to once again verify that everything is working correctly after taking the website live.
After launch and testing of the website, you are provided with a zipped archive of all website files.
Instructions & Documentation When necessary, any documentation needed to use the administration functions of your website is included in PDF format.
Minor Adjustments / Changes
Minor adjustments to the website are included at no charge for up to two weeks after the website has launched (maximum of up to 3 hours labor). Minor changes include adding changing text, adding or changing photos, etc. Any major revision requests will require additional discussion and possibly incur a fee.
There is no extra cost charged for our development approach, we believe it is how this type of work should be done to achieve the best results, and also save time and costs around misunderstandings be dealing with them early.
We have developed a highly effective and efficient SEO system that proves itself time and again for clients in a variety of different industries.
-First hand experience in Online Marketing for over 12 years
-Proven page 1 Google rankings for a whole range of clients in different industries
-Link Building Experts, including 'do follow' high PR backlinks
-Genuine interest in keeping up to date with SEO knowledge
Please ask for examples of previous SEO campaigns.
We also offer, enterprise class cloud based hosting for our customers. Our servers are based at Rackspace, the leading provider of cloud based hosting in the UK.
It should also be noted that our servers are configured for secure e-commerce solutions, and are recognised as hosting only legitimate sites. This improves marketing activities, performance and reliability. Our production servers are supported 24x7, and are backed up on a regular basis, providing peace of mind and high availability
As part of the hosting service all the domains will be managed and renewed on your behalf.
Whilst our hosting services are not the cheapest available on the market we believe they do offer exceptional value for money and reliability, after all there is no point having a great web site if the web site is offline and loosing your potential business.
