Why Web Design Oxford? First Impressions Matter
Good responsive web design for your Oxford website matters. Your website is the window through which your audience views your Oxford-based business. A professionally designed WordPress website will encourage people to buy your products or services. Conversely poor web design, or a website which is not responsive, will see them leave your website as quickly as they arrived.
Every business in Oxford needs a well-constructed and professional website if it wants to promote its products or services successfully. We use the WordPress content management system for all our web design in Oxford, as it the most flexible and user-friendly platform to build your new responsive website on. Over a third of the world's websites are designed on WordPress. Cotswold Websites are specialists with WordPress web design in Oxford on and only use premium WordPress themes for our website designs. Call us to talk through your new web design project with us.
When you commission a new WordPress website from us, we will take you through the process of learning what you aim to achieve with your new website, so that the website's quality reflects the ambitions and mission of your company. This will include:
- The full scope of your web design project
- Which elements and features you want to have included in the new website
- What your ultimate goals for the website are
Oxford Websites Should Be Designed To Convert
Irrespective of whether you need an eCommerce website, an information website, or a lead-capture website, every web page on your site must have a clear goal to help grow your business in Oxford. Our websites are carefully and professionally optimised to meet your operational requirements.
The layout of each page will focus on bringing attention to the main goal set for that web page. This will include the text being worded to attract the attention of website visitors who are just browsing or who are visiting your site looking for something more specific. Therefore, good and logical navigation forms a key element of the web design process and is integrated into the page to help your visitors find the information they need.
Your Website Content Should Explain The Benefits Of Your Oxford-based Business
People visit websites to get the information or goods they want. Only the best businesses prosper. By designing your website with a content management system such as WordPress, the content will be well managed, will be fully responsive and mobile-friendly. Each sentence on every page will be optimised to give the visitor authoritative information about your products and services.
Content writing is not easy to get right. If you need help in writing the content for your website, we can help you do it. Alternatively, if you provide the copy, we will help optimise it for you. Good web design in Oxford will take content optimisation into account.
SEO Should Be Built Into Your Oxford Website As Standard
We have always advocated that a website without SEO is as good as a car without an engine - useless! Many Oxford web design agencies demand that their customers pay for search engine optimisation on top of the web design and build. We think this approach is wrong and harmful to clients. Therefore, Cotswold Websites ensures that for every new website in Oxford we create for our clients in Oxford, goes through our search engine optimisation process to give your website the best SEO from the outset.
Good SEO practice is crucial to the design of every website from the earliest stages of web development. Researching and finding potent keywords is a major part of the web design process, so much so that the chosen keywords may affect the design of the website itself. Getting the search engine optimisation as an integral part of the website design must be a priority. This search engine optimisation integration with the design of your website is something Cotswold Websites provides you as standard and is included with every new website we create for Oxford businesses.
Mobile Friendly Web Design In Oxford
Mobile-friendliness is absolutely vital to your professional new website. Approximately 70% of all Internet browsing is now done from a mobile device. In late 2016 Google announced that it would be ranking websites in their search engine results pages (SERPs) for mobile-first. In other words, if your web design is not mobile-friendly, your website will suffer in the search results. Being a diligent web design agency in Oxford, you can be certain that we only design 100% mobile-friendly websites.
To add to the mobile-friendliness of our websites, we optimise the layout of different elements of each web page so that they flow best for mobile website users. This is aimed to help convert visitors into customers by providing them with the information and incentives to click through to your offerings. Good mobile-optimised web design will further help your website to be ranked better by Google, who, as we have seen, place high importance on mobile-friendly websites.

How Much Does Web Design In Oxford Cost?
One of the most common questions we are asked is, "how much does responsive web design in Oxford cost?" It is a great question, but one which can only be answered accurately with a good idea of what you want from your website. The pricing of all the professional websites that Cotswold Websites create is dependent upon the specifications of the web design work you want. We will take into account:
- The size of the website (number of pages and/or products for an eCommerce website)
- Any advanced features you want to take advantage of
- How much text we will need to provide
- Whether you provide images optimised for web design, or not
- If you need logos and other branding designed
- Whether it is to be an eCommerce website or a membership website
- Other functionality you specify
Once the full specification of the Oxford web design project has been agreed, we will quote you the price for your new website. Our prices are fixed with no hidden fees, so long as there are no changes to the specification once work has started. Changes to the web design specification will usually mean new pricing needs to be agreed, as the changes may mean significant knock-on effects to the planned web design.
