Why choose GD Webs?
We believe that the value of your website doesn’t just lie in its appearance – unless it maximises return on investment, everyone has wasted their time.
At GD Webs, our expertise combines management, technical, creative and analytical skills to ensure that every penny spent on your website is an investment in your company’s future. Our elegant, user-focused web solutions will meet your business objectives.
How we manage your web design project
Our process of designing and building your new website is bespoke to your needs. Perhaps you want us to research and write the content, or you may have in-house staff for this.
You may just want us to run with a few website design ideas, so you can see what you like, or you may have a firm vision for your new website. Whatever your starting point, we’ll tailor our web design process to meet your needs.
In general, the web design process will include the following:
1. Your starting point
We’ll begin by getting to know your business and understand your values and goals. This includes looking at your future plans, to make sure you get a website that’s scalable with your business.
We’ll analyse your existing website, to find out what works and what doesn’t. And we’ll review your other marketing and communications materials. In short, we’ll get to the nub of why you want a new website and what success will look like.
2. Your audience and competitors
No web design and development plan is complete without a thorough assessment of your target audience and your competitors. We’ll look at how your intended customers behave online, to find out what attracts them and what turns them from browsers to buyers.
We’ll also see what your competitors are doing in the online marketplace, learning from their successes and capitalising on any opportunities they’re missing.
3. Your design and build
With our research complete, we’ll present you with a plan for your website. Depending on your requirements, we could then develop a few designs for you to try on for size, or deliver a detailed proposal for a definitive version of your website.
Once we’ve agreed on the approach, plan and design, we will design and build your website. Throughout this process, we’ll communicate with you so you can feed back on ideas and designs as they emerge. Our approach is collaborative throughout, so you can be sure there’ll be no nasty surprises.
Our developers create and build websites that are feature-rich and easy to use. Whether you require a content management system that your own communications team can update, or an e-commerce module, we have everything covered, including information architecture, front-end development, coding, and optimisation for conversions and search engines.
We use internationally trusted content development platforms, so you have peace of mind that all software is secure and future-proof.
4. Your training
If you want your staff to manage the day-to-day maintenance of your website, we’ll deliver a full suite of training packages for all user levels, including writers, administrators and webmasters.
This will be entirely tailored to the needs of your users. Of course, we’ll always be on hand to offer support and guidance too.

Launching a new website is a major investment in the future of your business, and you can be sure that with GD Webs, it’s money well spent.
