Web design and development

great websites at afforable prices

whiteshed:media's goal is to proved a great quality of service as well as fantastic, easy to use websites.

But how exactly do we differ from all the 1000's of web design and development companies out there... Well that's simple...

What we do...

We do write awesome code...

With over 23 years in the software development industry we can write some awesome code.

We have no problem writing simple 5 page websites or complex bespoke database driven websites. If you want it... we will create it...

Free website design service...

Yes... I said FREE... Essentially if you let us know what you want, we can send you (via email) a design that can be altered and tweaked until your are happy with it. All for free...

We offer some great prices...

Our pricing structure is simple. We charge by the hour or part hour. For more information on our prices please visit our price list page.

We always build mobile versions...

Some web development companies will build mobile version of a website that more or less resembles an iPhone application. We don't do that...

In most cases, we start building a website from the mobile version upwards as we want all our customers to have beautiful website on a mobile device as well as on a desktop.

What we don't do...

We do not write content...

What that means is that any written content for the website must be provided by you.

We don't know your company as well as you know your company, so it is not very easy for us to write the content for your website...

(we actually had a hard time working out the content for our own website)

We don't use old technology...

As Flash is no longer supported in all web browsers, we no longer offer a service for designing and adding Flash to any of our websites. This is to give consistency to the desktop and mobile versions.

We also do not allow the use of advert pop-ups, pop-unders or flash banner adverts on our websites. They are ugly and spoil the end user experience.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO for short)

This is one of those internet buzzwords that everyone talks about and in our 20+ years of experience in the web and software development field, has found that the only true way to guarantee your website will be on the first page of Google or other search engine is to pay lots of money to have it as an advert.

Most search engines run "Organically" (sorry... another internet buzzword) which is to say that certain criteria is met in order to find your website.

This includes keywords in the web address as well as in the content of the page.

If you Google search for "search engine optimization" at the time we created this page the first result (not a paid advert) is a wikipedia.org page about the subject and not one of the search engine optimization companies that "guarantee" that they can get you to the first page... (funny that)
