Having designed the previous brochure-style website for Fixed Locally owner Steve the continued growth of the business meant that the site outgrew it's humble beginnings and required an update to add additional features and make some content changes for SEO purposes.Visit Fixed Locally
Website design project key facts
Project team Chris Grant - Head of Design & Development
Web development solution
We gave the design of the website a bit of a modern facelift, improved page load times by optimising images and making use of next-generation image formats, and all while keeping the original WordPress framework in place.
Additional sections of content were added to the site, while some others were removed and updated for SEO purposes. We also added new enquiry features to refurbished PC and laptop listings so that visitors can request additional details or get int ouch to buy a specific PC or laptop. This feature was to act as a halfway point to full e-commerce functionality, which wasn’t yet required for the site.
In the words of Steve Costello, Fixed Locally
When I needed a website for a new business project I didn’t even consider other designers. Chris always responds instantly to any of my requests for changes, updates or complete new sites. His work is always first rate and brings in exactly the business I target. Why would I go elsewhere?
The day after I contacted Chris he had acquired the new domain and a very polished new website was up and running. Over the next few days, through an exchange of emails, all my finicky ideas and revisions were dealt with and new customer enquiries were already incoming.
If I was asked why I would recommend Chris before other designers my main reasons would be:
- Ease of contact
- Understanding of clients requirements
- Response time
- Value for money
- Ability to target a specific customer group
- Experience in a huge range of businesses
