Do you need a new website but don't know where to start?
Or do you already have a website but it doesn't do what you need it to do?
We walk you through the process, from initial discovery to strategy, from design to launch, and (as one of our customers recently said to us) we explain things to a level you understand, and we don't leave a stone unturned.
First we create websites that genuinely reflect your business, your brand, and your values. Visitors should get a strong sense of who you are and what you represent as soon as they arrive at your page.
And second we make sure that your website is built on a strong foundation. It needs to be coded well, be responsive, accessible, discoverable, and works the way people expect a website to work. All of these things in their own little way (that may not always be readily apparent) matter and it's important that we get it right.
So all of our processes, from the early discovery workshops to the design phase, to building and coding your website to the hosting and launch, are designed around both understanding what you need to achieve and building a website on a solid foundation that helps you achieve those goals.
"I first met Mark Faamaoni 20 2018 after being referred to him by another company.
I have a website for selling home brew stills online. I have had this website since 2015, and it was developed and hosted by another company. The original company was providing no support, and every time there was a problem, it was either the fault of my email provider, or it was something I had done. Whatever the fault, it was either not fixed, or I was charged to fix it.
He came out to my workplace and spent several hours determining what I needed from a website, and where my current one was not working for me (or my customers). He also went through the website, from a technical point of view, to analyze what had been done, and what was needed to fix it.
What I liked most about this process was Mark looked at what I needed. He was also very happy to admit that he needed to do more research on my existing website to get the best fix. It is always more challenging fixing someone’s work.
After a very short period, Mark came back to me with his recommendations, and three options I could choose from. We discussed the options, and with Mark’s assistance, the website was soon fixed and running well.
I also changed the hosting of the website to Mark’s company. Since then, life has been so much easier. There have been a couple of little hiccups with the website (only 2), and when it happens, one email is all it takes to get things resolved. Mark is also there if I need any changes made to the site.
The level of service I receive now has taken all the stress out of running online sales. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mark, not only for the technical work he does, but also the ethics and integrity by which he conducts himself."
We focus on working with small and medium sized businesses that are looking to improve their online presence. We can build simple one-page websites, more complex multi page websites with dynamic content and/or ecommerce websites so you can sell your products or services.
Websites built by Big Mark are responsive (which means they look great on both desktop computers and mobile devices), they are accessible (making sure your website can be used by the widest group of people) they are functional (the interface isn't confusing and adheres to what people expect a website to do) and discoverable (they are optimized for search engines, making it easier for people to find you.)
And we do all of these things by following a process that puts you and your business needs at its core.
Who are you? Why are you here? What are your goals? Who are your customers? What is your story? We research similar websites and competitors to build a picture of where you fit in the market and how we can build a website that gives you a competitive edge.
We draw upr a step-by-step action plan designed around meeting your goals and objectives while maintaining alignment with your brand.
We create digital mockups to give an indicative idea of the final website, with well structured content, with simple navigation with obvious and clear calls to action.
We build a fully responsive site based on approved designs that works across all modern devices.
We test all contact forms are working, check spelling and grammar, ensure the site fits best Search Engine Optimization practices and the latest accessibility standards.
We make your website live! We monitor your site for the first few days to make sure everything works as it should.
And if you host with us you get the advantages of a Content Delivery Network, automated back ups, automatic security patching and SSL certificate.
