+   Graphic Design and Navigation
  For 48%* of online users, difficult navigation is the number-one barrier to making a purchase or accessing the information they require online.

That's almost half of your customers gone due to clumsy and illogical navigation.

Our objective is to create a simple and easy to understand interface that allows visitors to navigate the site without getting lost or confused. To optimise the efficiency of the interface we consider interactive features such as links that highlight and sub menus that pop up when designing your Web site.

Consistent page layout is another barrier that must be overcome to successfully communicate to your audience. By defining Layout Templates new pages are created and modified that are consistent in look and design.

With a unique mix of leading edge technical expertise and creative ability, our sites can communicate to your audience quickly and efficiently.

Site Exposure and Reporting
 
Promotion and Exposure
How will people find your Web site amongst the millions of sites already out there?

85% of Web users find sites through search engines. To ensure that your future customers can find your site easily we register you with the Web's top Search Engines and Indexes.

Each search engine has it's own unique way of looking at your web site to determine what "search words" you should be found by. Knowing what these search engines look for could make the difference between someone finding your site or not.


Traffic Reporting
Unless your Web site is tuned to the needs of its audience it will fail its objective.

Analyzing traffic is essential to any type of online solution, including publishing, and e-commerce sites. Traffic Analysis software provides a report on visitor activity on your web site, including the number of visitors and the movement within the site.
