Purposeful website design that drives traffic and generates leads

Far more than just aesthetics

Our web design process starts from the ground up

We strive to glean an in-depth understanding of our client's business and the needs of their customers. In doing this we are able to design websites and applications that deliver a far more user-focused experience, that in-turn generate leads and maximise conversions.

Our vast experience in web design and UX combined with our technical proficency ensure we deliver the full package. It's what we've been doing for years.

What website do you need?

We design all types of websites, but if you need some direction here are the main four.

Brochure Websites

Ideal for start-ups looking to keep initial web design costs down, or for businesses who require a basic web presence.

Our brochure websites are designed bespoke for your business and offer a similar first impression to much bigger sites.

Brochure websites are good for showcasing photos, outlining a service or providing users with contact information.

Business Websites

Often an extension of a business's brand, there is a strong emphasis on this type of website communicating effectively with customers.

Products, services and well-written content geared towards highlighting a business's strengths and unique selling points are paramount in ensuring an upturn in enquiries from qualified leads.

Ecommerce Websites

As with any website, ecommerce websites are designed for a defined target market, but with the primary purpose of selling products or services securely online.

Our ecommerce websites are driven by WooCommerce, WordPress's native, and currently the most popular ecommerce platform.

Website Re-theme

If it's been a while since your company's website was last updated then a website re-theme for your WordPress website may be in order.

A re-theme differs from a complete re-design in that the pages and content can be retained. It's only the look and feel (its theme) that will be overhauled. This is often the preferred choice if a brand new site from ground up is too much of an undertaking.

Web Design FAQs

Commonly asked web design questions. We have it covered.

How much does a website cost?
In order to accurately cost a new website we must have a thorough understanding of the website's size, functionality and purpose. Typically, cost is based on both the number of unique layouts required to accommodate the content, and whether any advanced functionality is needed. Typically, we work with budgets from £2,000 for a small website, up to £20,000 for a large website.
Who do you work with?
We typically work with small to medium size businesses, spanning numerous industries in and around the Basingstoke and Hampshire region. We have also helped many start-ups get their branding and online presence off the ground. We also have a number of clients in and around London. Take a look at our recent work.
How long does a website take to build?
The website build from start to finish depends on the scale of the proposed project. A small portfolio website will obviously take a lot less time to produce than a large ecommerce website. We can usually give our clients accurate launch dates from when the project starts, and we'll do our utmost to fit in with your tight schedules. As a very rough estimate a small to medium size website can be turned around within four to six weeks.
What CMS do you specialise in?
We specialise in WordPress and it's a no-brainer. This is because WordPress is by far the most popular and supported CMS platform on the market. It's also extremely customisable which means that there's nothing you can't do with WordPress. Also, for the more budget-conscious clients there are a myriad of fantastic plugins which can transform a simple website into a functionality-rich solution.
Can you redesign or develop my existing website?
At CobwebMedia we revel in taking an existing website and developing it into a tool that can reap rewards for your business - if a website doesn't do that then what's the point? Whether you need a redesign or development of your existing website, our process is always the same; we take time to understand your business and it's customers, then deliver a solution to fit.
Who will own my website?
You own your website. We can provide you with the files and database at any point and if you ever wanted to move on we won't charge for releasing the files like some companies do.
Who's responsible for the website's content?
This depends. During our quoting process we will provide you with a cost for us to populate your website. However, most of our customers normally populate their own websites whilst we consult with them. If you do opt to populate your own website, we make it easy for you to add content by providing video screencasts (in-house training if you prefer) showing you how.
Where are you based?
Primarilly we provide web design in Basingstoke. But we also provide web design in Hampshire, Berkshire and the surrounding counties, including London.
Are CobwebMedia's websites SEO-friendly?
Yes. Here at CobwebMedia we are constantly evolving to maintain what has always been an enviable understanding of local SEO. Our websites are cleanly coded, semantic and fast. The site structures we propose and our approach to content ensures further optimisation is built upon a solid base.
Are there any hidden or ongoing costs?
We don't hide costs or tie our customers in with any recurring fees. We have a transparent pricing model and list all expected costs during our quotation process.
Do you work with off-the-shelf themes?
In a word, no. We build themes bespoke for your business. Without an understanding of your customers, their drivers and your objectives an off-the-shelf theme will never be as effective for your business as a bespoke website.
Do you offer SEO and ongoing maintenance?
Absolutely, and we do just this for a number of customers. We take website health very seriously and encourage our customers to have an open dialogue with us to ensure their website ranking remains competitive.

Strengthened our brand

The team are responsive, tolerant, understand what it takes to build a project with a client over time, and their finished products are sharp, clean and attractive. Both sites have helped us to spread our content wider and to strengthen our brand.

Very pleased with the result

The website only went live a few days ago and already the flow of orders is better than we anticipated. Throughout the design process I was impressed by CobwebMedia's collaborative approach and their ability to translate our objectives into practical design solutions.

Significantly improved our traffic

Since CobwebMedia built our website we have seen our online presence improve dramatically. Not only have they launched a beautiful and functional global website and extranet, they have also significantly improved our traffic and reduced our bounce-rate.
