Content Management Systems (CMS)

We can provide a content management system to enable you to update content such as products, pictures, news articles or special offers. There are various systems available including Joomla (Open Source) which relies upon a database platform. (The hosting requirements to run Joomla are recommended MySQL V4.1x + and PHP V5.2+) or PageLime in which the relevant code is inserted by Design Thirteen on the pages that require frequent updating.

These types of sites are slightly more expensive to set up but may offer good value as they can avoid the cost of future updates being needed from a web professional. It puts you in control as you will be able to update this yourself via a web browser allowing you to make changes to content when you want without delay or extra cost.

Web Applications

At Design Thirteen we can add interactivity to your website with some programming to enhance the user experience. You may require email capture or specific pages to be viewed by registered users, there are many options available, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Database and E-commerce websites

If you plan to sell goods via the internet these types of website will require a shopping cart and database function. We would recommend using Joomla(Open Source) which has various shopping cart extensions.

Social Media, Blogs and Forums

You may be looking to expand your presence by using Facebook and Twitter or simply to add a blog feature to your site enabling you to communicate with your customers or followers. These facilities are a great way to communicate new features, by keeping your website fresh, plus this information is easily found via search engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Bing).

There are various options to add this sort of functionality either by a Content Management System (CMS) or just via a feed to your website.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Domain name and hosting

We can help you to find the right domain name for your business or can assist you with renewal registration of an existing domain name. Please contact us for further information.

We are able to provide hosting to our web design clients, which means that the whole process is kept in-house.

Search Engine Optimization

We will ensure that any website that we produce for you is search engine friendly so that your business can be searched for and easily found.

Advertising

We can further enhance the search engine results for your business with targeted results by subscribing to Google's AdWords and/or Microsoft Advertising AdCenter which incorporates Yahoo Search & Bing. This works by bidding for specific keywords relevant to your business. When these keywords, such as "low cost holidays" are typed by customers into a search engine the results are highlighted at the top of the page or the right side of the page where keyword advertising appears. You are charged only once a customer clicks on your link.
