There’s no getting away from the fact that your customers are shopping online. No matter what industry you’re in – from local florists and plumbers to international fashion brands and supermarkets – your ideal customers are whipping out their devices and heading to Google to search for your products and services. And if you’re not online, it’s impossible for you to sell to them.
A website should act as your best salesperson – and we’ll craft it for you. The Audit Lab is a web design and development agency, born and bred in Bolton, Greater Manchester, and we’ve built websites for local businesses down the road to national household names. We’ve been around the block a few times, and our passion for creating beautiful websites that work hard to drive customers and deliver results has never wavered.
Websites designed and built from scratch
Themes are great and they have their place, but why should your website look like everyone else’s out there? Individuality is what makes you shine amongst the competition. The first step to starting from scratch is for our team to sit with you and find out everything we possibly can about your business to ensure that it meets your values and achieves your goals; whether that’s to sell online, generate leads or tell your brand story, your new website will be built with the user journey and targets in mind.
And it’s all approved by you. Our team works alongside you every step of the way to ensure you are happy with every single shade and text box size. We’ll also be able to advise on the best platform for your business and goals to take your website to the next level.
Remember that a good website looks good and shows what you do. But a great website offers an incredible user experience, drives engaged traffic and – most important of all – converts that traffic into loyal customers.
Websites built with SEO in mind
The last thing you want is for your beautiful new website to be ignored by search engines. A website that is built on poor technical SEO foundations won’t rank – and therefore won’t convert – organically. Every website project that passes through our doors is built with SEO in mind, and our technical SEO experts are consulted from start to finish.
We consider factors that other agencies don’t, such as keeping your site’s navigational structure clean and simple, the speed of your website, considering how the content will be displayed, and Google’s ever-important Core Web Vitals criteria.
Once we’re finished with your project, you won’t only have a website that looks good, it’ll perform well and rank, too.
Website maintenance service
Once your website is up and running, don’t just breathe a sigh of relief and never think about it again. Healthy websites need regular check-ups and maintenance to ensure they’re working at their best. And that’s where we come in again. As a trusted website maintenance agency, we can help with everything from the smallest tweak to theme updates, plugin installations to SEO improvements. As an example, if you happen to have a WordPress website, not updating your plugins regularly can leave it vulnerable to hackers – which is the last thing you want.
Our team of experienced and friendly developers can help keep your website in tip-top condition.
Ecommerce website design and development
Selling online is essential for retailers. It doesn’t matter what you sell; in today’s day and age you need to be online. People like to shop quickly and conveniently nowadays, and a secure, easy-to-use website is the way to do it.
An ecommerce site needs to be much more than a brochure. Of course, it has to show off your products at their very best, but your customers need to interact – to create an account, make a wishlist and, of course, buy your products.
We get to know your business as well as we can do, so we can suggest the right platform and the right design for you.
Lead generation website design and development
Your website is a virtual shop window; it’s where customers will decide if you’re worth the time and energy of contacting. And to us, a lead generation website is so much more than a place to point your customers. The goal of your site is to transform curious web surfers into potential customers – and that’s where we come in.
Our team will build a clean, crisp and simple lead generation website that not only gives your potential customers the information they need to go from interested to eager, but that makes it incredibly easy for them to contact you. The process should be smooth and seamless; delivering warm leads straight to your door.
From effective landing pages and convincing images to uncomplicated contact forms and bold calls to action, we’ve perfected the formula for a lead generation site that works.
WordPress website development
Chances are you’ve heard the name ‘Wordpress’ before, as it’s one of the most easy-to-use and loved website platforms out there for everyone, from bloggers to the biggest brands. Our team specialises in bespoke and easy-to-manage websites powered by WordPress, consistently focusing on strong performance, helpful content and – as always – being search engine-friendly.
Every one of our custom-built WordPress websites is developed with speed and user experience in mind, giving you the competitive edge in both search and conversions. Whether you’re looking to start from scratch, give an existing site a revamp and boost, or want to migrate over to WordPress, we’re the team you need.
Shopify website development
Shopify is an incredibly popular and easy-to-use CMS. Thanks to its out-of-the-box functionality and features, building and managing an online store just got a whole lot easier. Our talented team can work with available Shopify themes or create a custom build from scratch, adding features and customising to create a beautiful and bespoke website that reflects your business.
Wherever you are in your online journey, The Audit Lab team will bring your vision and ideas to life. Once your design – whether it’s a pre-existing theme or a completely bespoke build – is approved by yourselves, it will then head into the development stage. Working closely with yourself and your account manager, our developers will make your new website a reality.
