Web: What we do

We cater for all requirements from a small static web presence to a large dynamic integrated ecommerce website.

The process involved in the building of a website is more involved than print or identity. Planning is vital for the design and build of a successful site. Website design (how the site looks), content (what’s in the website), functionality (how the site interacts with the administrator and user), search engine optimisation (how the site will be found by search engines) are the key elements to plan.

Web-based Content Management Systems

CMS or content managed systems are a popular option for many clients. We use either WordPress or Joomla, primarily but not exclusively, for our content management as it affords clients non-techie, user-friendly, feature-rich, environments in which they can update their website. Its functionality is enhanced by the thousands of plugins that are available for ecommerce, social media, SEO, mobile sites and much more.

We offer two options for our WordPress and Joomla sites, either a bespoke website design or an in-house theme. WordPress and Joomla themes are prebuilt templates that provides clients, with a limited budget, a great looking website.

Essel provides a simplified approach to web design and development. If you want to work with an agency that blends creativity with technical ability then contact us on 01243 219127 and speak with a member of our team, or alternatively, e-mail using our online form to discuss your project requirements.
