Effective web design to help your business to flower on the web
Leaping Hare specialises in helping small businesses - especially artists, craftspeople, performers, food producers and other creative workers - to establish an effective presence on the web.
It is understood that your budget may not be as big as you might like, and you are probably looking for something fairly low cost but don't want to sacrifice good design. So finding a web designer, who understands your business and your needs, can be quite a task.
Well designed web sites that look good to the human eye and to web robots
It will be important that your website is attractive, well designed and reflects your image and style. But perhaps even more importantly your site must be attractive to search engines. If people can't find your site then you have wasted your money.
Leaping Hare focuses on creating websites which are both attractive and functional. Getting found by search engine spiders is no longer a matter of cramming keywords into the hidden meta tags. The web robots are far too intelligent for that. They now look at the whole context of a web page or site. So if you want to be found on the internet you have to create good content and balance design aspects around it.
Aesthetics is never totally objective. What one person finds attractive another may shun. But when it comes to the structure of websites there are guidelines that, if followed, will ensure that your site gets indexed and that visitors have a good experience. You can find out more in our accessibility, search engine submission and website improvement sections.
Help available if you want to build your own website
Many people, especially in the creative industries, would like to build their own websites. But it takes time to learn all the skills needed to construct an effective web site, and it isn't cost effective unless you intend to make website design one of your services or a creative medium in itself. Leaping Hare can adopt a collaborative approach, working with you to make your vision work on the web. So you get the website you want without having to learn all the techniques and jargon.
More than just website design
Not only will you benefit from years of web building experience but you can also call on expertise in sales and marketing, advertising, and business management to help your business grow and flourish.
