Bespoke WordPress websites

Our WordPress websites are the perfect solution for businesses large and small. WordPress is trusted by almost 500 million websites, with an up-to-date and easy-to-use content management system.

As an experienced WordPress web design agency, we create incredibly fast sites without the bloat that comes with off-the-shelf themes. We make sites that work for you.

We will host your website in a safe and secure environment, with monthly managed hosting plans available to keep your site using the most recent technology.

UX & UI at the heart of every website design

Every website starts with design. Our web designers will work with you to identify which areas of your business you would like to showcase and plan the pages of your site based on user flow and UX practices.

A user interface is developed throughout the design, working with your colours and logos to create a website that will work seamlessly with your brand.

We make sure you are part of the process, and we will present a full site design before developing your website.

Mobile responsive website design and development

Today, more than ever, having a mobile responsive website is important for keeping your audience engaged and staying on your website.

Mobile accounts for approximately half of web traffic worldwide, so your business needs a website that can be competitive in a mobile-first world. Monster keeps mobile at the forefront, from initial design to final build.

Our fast hosting servers will also make sure your website is optimised for users on slower mobile connections, vital for stopping potential customers from leaving your site before it’s even loaded.

eCommerce websites built in WooCommerce

We use WordPress’s biggest shopping plugin WooCommerce for any eCommerce website.

Monster creates online stores, from start-up shops with only a few items to global eCommerce websites selling thousands of products.

All of our websites are secured using SSL to give your customers peace of mind that their payments are safe. We can also integrate different payment gateways including Stripe and PayPal.

Affordable websites for small businesses

Monster designs and builds beautiful, lead generating, affordable websites for small businesses.

For small businesses, a website is a central marketing asset – it sits online, never takes a day off and markets your services 24/7.

Our small business websites are designed by experienced web designers and digital marketing professionals. Built in WordPress, your website will be easy to manage and update.

A website with three design templates and simple development will cost less than a larger more complex site.

A site with 10 design templates, Google Maps integration, downloads, and more complex development will cost more.

What are the elements of good website design?

This all comes down to your objectives. 

Of course, a well designed and built site is imperative as a starting point.

Good website design will consider your target market, their needs, and the information they will be looking for.

Well structured content in easy to read, digestible chunks will help motivate a website visitor to enquire about your services.

Having a solid website structure and pages for your services, products, locations, and more will help the user find exactly what they are looking for.

Multiple calls to action will influence a website visitor to call, email or submit their information via a form.

Email downloads and guides will build credibility. Capturing email addresses will help you to build a marketing list and generate leads over time.

How do you generate more leads from a website?

To generate more leads from a website there are two areas to focus on; traffic and converting more of the visits you get into enquiries. 

If you generate more traffic, you have a good chance of increasing your enquiries.

If you review your site and feel there are limited opportunities for people to get in touch with you, we would suggest redesigning your page and undertaking some conversion optimisation.

Why should I avoid having a cheap website?

If you are a business operating in a competitive market, a cheap website will likely devalue your brand and potentially impact the perception of your business.

These factors may inhibit your website from generating sales leads.

If your website doesn’t generate leads, your business growth may be impacted.

We do offer solutions for small businesses. Our websites for small businesses are affordable.

Like the old saying goes, buy cheap, buy twice.

Will my website be found on Google?

Our websites are built with SEO in mind.

To retain any rankings and traffic you currently have we have a migration process that ensures we carry over meta titles, URLs, H1s, H2s, and more.

This activity is crucial to retaining website traffic. 

For new websites, we can build your site to reflect the keywords you would like to appear for. When your site gets indexed by Google, we can make an assessment of what it will take to get you to a level of search engine visibility that will generate traffic.

In addition to websites, we offer SEO services to businesses across Hampshire & West Sussex.

How long does a web design project take?

Typically, a website project is delivered over a 2-3 month period. 

This is the perfect timeframe to deliver a website project as it gives you, the client the opportunity to review templates, tweak content and sign-off designs.
