Web Designers in Waterlooville
Portsmouth and Hampshire
I'm looking for a web designer in Waterlooville, Portsmouth or Hampshire area. Why? Because at least that way I can deal with someone local to me and know that they are a real person!
Strange as this comment might sound, the fact is that the internet is full of websites that promote or sell services, but do YOU really know who you are dealing with? This page is here to explain in a very simplistic way what we do, what we can offer and how we value the need to support local business by sticking together.
We can build websites...
That compliment your business and at a fraction of the cost of most web design companies
Although people and some companies may claim that building a website is easy, and that you can have a website in minutes, the reality is definitely a lot different. 123 Simples build websites using only professional high end designer software.
When YOU see a website on a screen, that is not where it ends
You browse to a website and just see the page purely as a visual thing. Many people think that designing a website is something you can just bang out in 5 minutes, with very little effort. They also believe wrongly that their website is going to be on page one of ALL searches, and that everyone is going to love their website, and order immediately. The truth is somewhat different to that.
Firstly designing a website can take days, weeks or even months to put together - it depends on the needs of each client. Even whilst designing a website it can "morph" from one concept to another, before you may finally get a finished project. In between all of this a web designer often will be working in RAW CODE view - the same kind of coding that help Google and other search engines to understand what your website is about.
We only use the right coding for your website
With most of the "build your website in 5 minutes" drag and drop editors, such as those online ones that promise the earth, the software itself can throw in totally unnecessary coding that is not needed, or can be cumbersome and bloated. If they do then this can significantly slow down your website on load times. With a 123 Simples website we use only the essential coding that your website may need to function correctly, and we test your website across the four main web based browsers to make sure what looks great on Firefox, does not look pants on Internet Explorer.
To get people to your website, we also build them to be search engine friendly. This means that apart from the standard meta tags, image attributes, title tags, written content and so forth, we work to make sure that each page is unique and is likely to get found in search results. Having everything just right is a crucial part of any website, and 123 Simples always aim to be professional in their creation and development process for your website.
You won't need to sell a kidney to pay for your website design
We build affordable websites that work. As a small business ourselves we understand the need to make sure that you don't end up having expenses that outstrip your income, and our philosophy is to provide a decent service for a reasonable cost. Looking around at various competitors our web design costs seem pretty reasonable to be honest, but don't take our word for it. Look for yourselves.
We're pretty good at graphics and layout...
Which means that your website can look great and attract attention
123 Simples use the best of graphic programs from the Adobe range - Photoshop, Fireworks and Illustrator. We are what we would best describe as fairly knowledgeable when it comes to using this type of software. We can reasonably put together most kinds of graphics and designs that will stand out - we also have built and designed flash adverts, banners and so forth. There are times when we may outsource work when it comes to specific logo designs, and we will always ask the clients first, what their preference is.
We can supply and offer web hosting...
Using reputable UK based web servers that don't let you down
And we can supply and setup web hosting for your website, using what we believe to be reliable and supportive web hosts who are based in the UK. After many years of using web hosting ourselves, we have found one thing to be certain - if you pay peanuts, then you're going to get a monkey. So we tend to look at reasonable prices, servers that are not overloaded with thousands of websites on just one server, and some way of being able to contact people using a system that does NOT rely on just luck.

We took red, green and blue - SIMPLES
