Web Consultancy

Web Consultancy

Working with customers that have a clear vision of what they want to achieve online is probably the exception more than the rule.

We more often find that customers can clearly articulate where they want to be, and that this articulation is often based on what their competitors are doing; they will know work has to be done, but may not have the personnel, the skills or the time to realise.

That’s where Electric Mill can step in. We can facilitate some of the key work packages for you, including

  • Competitor Analysis
  • Workshops with key internal stakeholders
  • Reporting Writing (Both Specification and Analysis)
  • Project Management

Content Management Systems

Content Management Systems

In reality – all content managment systems pretty much do the same job in allowing you to publish content on your website.

We currently support a number of open source CMS products – WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal.

The system we recommend depends on the understanding we get from our customers on their requirements, needs and expectations; Content authoring issues are normally uppermost :

  • Will there be a number of people maintaining the site?
  • Are they comfortable editing web pages?
  • Do they think new content will be added on a regular basis?
  • Is there an editorial policy for new content?
  • Do they intend to blog?

Typical functionality which exists as plugin or extension for content managed systems include :

  • Search Engine optimisation
  • Search Engine friendly URL’s
  • Multi-language support
  • RSS Feeds and management
  • Blogging
  • Media Management (Audio, Video, Text documents, etc)
  • Visitor traffic
WordPress Development

WordPress

WordPress development experts

We’ve been developing WordPress website since 2006. Whether it is WordPress Theme (web design) development, Plugin Development, Installation, Configuration or Training – you’ve come to the right people.

For Blogs

The natural starting point – WordPress is a blogging engine after all. If you want to integrate a blog onto your existing website, mabe using an existing look and feel – we can do that.

For Websites

We’ve developed corporate web sites for clients in sectors as diverse as travel, health and manufacturing. Their requirements are often focused on a proven, extensible, easy to use CMS.

WordPress is perfectly suited to organisations that want to easily maintain their website content using an administration section that is perfectly featured for their needs.

Theme Design & Customisation

With so many themes and designs already out there – chances are you may have seen something you already like; we can take existing free themes and modify them to suit your needs; We can also work with any existing design you have (say in Photoshop format) and deliver you a fully functional WordPress theme to you.

Plugin Development

Sometimes, the vast plugin repository available to WordPress users does not offer the functionality required for a specific project. Not a problem.

We have a lot of experience developing bespoke functionality for things like conference and event booking, payment engine integration and member databases; If it doesn’t already exists – we’re happy to develop it for you.

Training

We’ve always done WordPress training as part of the Web Design & Development services to our clients. Our preference is that customers are self-sufficient in their ability to keep their own sites updated. While it is incredibly easy to do this using WordPress – sometimes we think that a few hours of training can make things even easier.

Mobile Marketing, Web Development, Web Consultancy, Widget Marketing – It’s been a busy few months

We’ve been deep in client projects over the past few months, so here’s a quick rundown on some of the things we have been up to.
