Making sure your website works on all devices is one of the most important parts of designing a website. Not only is it a weighted ranking factor from Google, but it can also have detrimental affects on your conversion rate.
Nearly 50% of all search users perfrom these searches from a mobile device, if you're site is not opitmised for mobile devices that's a huge amount of traffic your missing out on.
Keeping your website is mobile-friendly involves making sure your content fits the page, all text is visible, custom elements works as they should, and your entire website looks just as good as it would on a desktop PC.
Another ranking factor from Google that carries a lot of weight its ability to load faster than the average website. Doing so, can have great benefits for your SEO and help outrank your competition, particularly those who have poorly-built, slow websites.
Aside from the ranking benefit of a fast website, it also helps boost your rate of conversion. With an ever-decreasing attention span of the average person, it's vital your website loads quick enough. In fact, anything over 3 seconds and you'll start to see a drop off in traffic.
If you're a new business, or going for a rebrand, your going to need a new domain. This is your internet address that you see in the top bar of your browsers; just like ours "rankguru.co.uk".
We will help get you set up and deal with the technical side of the setup, ensuring a smooth transition. In addition to your domain registration, we can also help with any hosting queries you have, and set this up too if need be.
SEO is a widely misconceived process. Over the years it's grown a bad reputation and often makes the skin crawl of any business owner as soon as they hear those dreaded three letters.
But it's actually an incredibly powerful process if done correctly. It is used to increase the search engine rankings of your website and its subpages for your chosen keywords and phrases. SEO is a complicated and long-lasting operation, but it designed to aid business growth and generate new leads or sales for your business.
When designed your website we make sure to integrate SEO into the build phase. This helps give your website a kick start with Google, helping it see your business as a legitimate interest and pathe the way for any future strategies.
Every day new competitors are springing up over the country, and without a website in a city as active as Birmingham, you could quite easily fall behind. It’s more important than ever to keep up with the latest digital trends and provide a digital storefront to your business, generating leads and growing brand awareness.
In this day and age, most businesses are expected to have a website, those who don’t, often lose credibility. It’s common for a potential client/customer to look elsewhere if your company doesn’t have an active site.
Aside from promoting credibility and generating brand awareness, it’s an incredibly powerful tool when used correctly. Businesses can utilize the power of search engines to rank their website for chosen keywords and phrases. Thus generating new leads.
Building websites for businesses across Birmingham we are bound to run into competition. But we can actually use that to our advantage in some aspects of the process. Knowing your enemy is the best way to beat them.
Before we begin building your website we take the time to research your most prominent competitors and understand their strategies. Once we have collected enough data we will be able to see what's working for them, and what isn't. We can then use this information to build a website good enough to compete with the aid of SEO.
If your business plans to sell products or services online, you're going to need an e-commerce capable website. This will allow you to manage your orders, take payments online, track stock and even pull up analytics.
This often requires a lot more work than a traditional website; such as a service area business like an accountants. It's important that you get this set up right so customers can enjoy a smooth checkout process.
There's nothing worse than working with an agency that provides your site with content, that's also delivered to every other one of their clients in the same industry. We've seen this first hand and the impact it can have on your website.
We make sure to provide clients with custom content across their entire site. You can send us what you have, and we'll fill in the rest. Optimising each piece of content we publish for the best chance of ranking. If you work with us on a long-term basis, we hold the same standards for your blog and any new pages with build.
Any business serious about ranking has landing pages set up on their site. This is generally a page that is "seperate" from the rest of your website. Whilst it is still connected and optimised, they are often built with no external links or navigational menus to ensure the highest chance of conversion.
Landing pages are usually used in situations where you want the customer to stay on the desired page and not wonder off. PPC advertising and email campaigns linking to products or offers are often good examples.
Do I need all this SEO stuff?
It depends on the future plans of your business. If you’re serious about growing your business online and creating a digital presence, then yes, SEO is an absolute must for long-term lead generation. Especially in popular cities such as Birmingham, where web design alone won’t cut through the noise.
If you’re not sure about the future of your website, there’s no need to jump on SEO right now. The process generally takes a long-time to work, so obiously the sooner you get started the bette, but if your focus lies on foot traffic there’s nothing wrong with just building a static site to compliment your brand.
We can build your pages, add some content, and make sure your site is branded without the need for opitmisation. This is often what we use our free consultation offer for, to talk things through and see what direction your business is moving.
Are your websites designed from scratch?
No. To put it simply our websites aren’t designed from scratch no. This is down to our mission statement. We want to work with small businesses across the country and provide affordable web design services so they can continue to grow without breaking the bank.
This would be next to impossible to do if our websites we bespoke. Coding an entire site from scratch can produce some amazing results, but also takes an enourmous amount of times, thus resulting in much higher fees for our clients.
We use templates for all of our clients, which create the back-end for us. This allows us to save time on building your site and focus on what’s important. That doesn’t mean however, our website’s aren’t tailor-made.
As we said, we use the websites to cut out the coding work, we can still design your websites however you like, including custom colours, graphics and even new elements.
Just let us know what you have in mind in your free initial consultation.
How The Process Works
It’s simple! We love to get to know your business, so that we can really understand your goals.
We will have an initial meeting (or an exchange of e-mails if that's how you roll) so we can get to know each other a little better. This will give us an understanding of how you want to proceed.
Once we know the direction your business needs to take, we'll begin exchanging information on the design of your site. Including a quick discussion on any additional services we think you could benefit from.
Now we know how to proceed, we'll begin drawing up the paperwork and designing your website. The typical turnaround for a new site is 30 days. Though this is adjustable for urgent projects, or those that require a little more work.

Reviews from Birmingham Clients
Couldn't be happier with the results! I worked with James, who did us a great website and SEO services for my brand new business, helped it get off the ground running. Believe it or not, we're actually having to turn clients away.
Black Country Detailing
Delighted with my new, swanky website designed and constructed by Sovereign Marketing Ltd. I didn't know where to start, and James turned my verbal ramblings into a professionally looking site. Even better, is that since the website was launched, my sales have started to fly in! Many thanks indeed.
