I have worked with Fun Leisure UK for the past few months with their search engine optimisation campaign, after have a good discussion about a re-design of their existing website we put together a plan of attack. Fun Leisure UK wanted a quote basket that essentially allows the visitor to add products to a basket similar to a eCommerce website however rather than having a checkout and payment gateway the website actually allows you to bulk enquire about the products you highlighted.
Fun Leisure UK offer a wide range of awesome and unusual events and entertainment for hire throughout the United Kingdom. We have already began work on their brand new website in regards to the search engine optimisation, I can't wait to see what the next few months brings and I am looking forward to working with Darren and Haydn again in the very near future.

I did not design the original The Dressing Room eCommerce website however I have hosted it and managed it for the past year or so, having recently spoke to Jim from The Dressing Room regarding the website and how we can take it forward we came up with the idea of targeting the French and German markets.
This means we needed to get the website translated first of all so we made some new contacts with some fantastic German and French translators who I am sure I will use again in the near future. Once the websites were translated we then put together a search engine optimisation plan which has been implemented and into action.
It was great working with Jim as ever and I look forward to working with him again in the near future.

Finally happy to announce that the newly re-designed Gifts4Gifts website has relaunched with a brand new design and loads of new features. Gifts4Gifts has a website designed last year by a web design agency in Wigan but after months of hosting issues and the website not being what they wanted they decided to look for a new company to host their website, Annette from Gifts4Gifts then contacted me just before Christmas and we met up and we discussed their website. We both had ideas on how to improve the website and both decided the best solution is an entirely brand new eCommerce website.
We then worked closely to make sure the website was this time exactly what Gifts4Gifts wanted, the website has personalised items that have specific options that are easily added to listings and connect directly with their suppliers to ensure a smooth and hassle free experience not only for the team at Gifts4Gifts but for the end user.

Today I have upgraded to my own dedicated server which means I have more control over the websites I host and that an overall improvement will be noticeable in terms of performance on all the websites I host. This will not affect any current clients with any of the services I have provided.
This is very exciting for me as it allows me to do a lot more, I have more control over the hosting I offer so you can expect a lot more of packages I will be able to offer. I can't wait to fill up my server with some beautiful web designs now!

I have been really busy this year and it has been great, I have been working with some truly interesting businesses and industries, I have made some great friends and met some inspirational people. I love updating my web design portfolio and I am always designing great websites for both clients and for my portfolio.
With every design I like to push the boundaries of what is considered web design by simplifying complex websites. I hate nothing more than landing on a website that has over complicated navigation and functions. Once I understand the clients requirements I then start to design a website in my head, I take into consideration their industry and their clients and design a simplistic, beautiful website around that. By using analytical tools it allows me to monitor websites and see exactly what visitors are doing when they visit websites, this gives me an overview of what steps they take, how they navigate and what exactly do from their I work with my clients to perfect not only their content but their navigation and functions on their website.
If you have a website that you think is a little complex for your clients then why not get in touch and see how I can improve your website and its navigation or functions.

Hey guys! I have had a few good meetings over the past couple of days which have been very productive. Looking forward to starting on some really interesting websites over the next couple of days. I am also close to completing a few web designs that will be great additions to my web design portfolio so be sure to keep checking back for updates.
Well as you are aware if you read my last post my domain is now 1 year old which is great and I have had a few compliments which are always appreciated. I have recently upgraded my server which will not effect any existing customers as I have simply upgraded the specifications on the machine that hosts the websites. This in turn will speed up overall loading times and also allow larger more powerful website to perform quicker and more freely within the server, might sound a bit technical but it is needed and another great addition to Sam Jay Heaton - Web Design Wigan
