I contacted Ginny as I was having website IT issues and needed a fresh new updated website site after 15 years with the old one. Ginny has sorted this out for me in quick time and the end result is fabulous, I am very pleased. Ginny is reliable, always responds quickly and excellent at what she does. Highly recommend.

Ginny at HIA Web Design has done a full redesign of my website for my singing business "Singing UK" and I love it! The design is fabulous and much improved, making it contemporary, clean and visually engaging. She also took care of the SEO for my site, which gives me peace of mind as it's one thing having a nice-looking website but another to get it seen. She was extremely patient with my many, many questions and changes as well as being very responsive and fast-acting. She's also really friendly and approachable so a total pleasure to work with. Ginny comes highly recommended!

Why is web design important?

Your website is your window to the world. Its the first place the majority of your customers will look if they want to find out more about your services or products. Your website is all about first impressions – so its important you make a good one!

Don’t just take my word for it… Web design is incredibly powerful – in fact 94%* of first impressions are linked into your website’s design. That’s a pretty huge stat. (*source)

As a result, the visual identity of your site will impact a visitors perception of you on multiple levels. Effective web design could mean the difference between generating sales and building brand awareness, or potential customers looking elsewhere and going to your competitors.

Through the use of strategically placed content, appealing images and well placed calls to actions, you can help build a relationship, foster trust and create a positive experience for your potential client before you’ve even physically made contact with them.

frequently asked questions

Below are some answers to common questions we get asked.

What are the benefits of having a website?

Having a website is the new front door of your business. Many potential customers now check online prior to choosing who they want to use. Ensuring you have a presence online is essential for customers to be able to find your business.

Why is having a well designed website so important?

A well designed website is vitally important for two main purposes. First, it gives visitors a great first impression of your business. Secondly, you want to convert that visitor into a customer. Having an easily to navigate, good looking website, is the perfect way to give you and your business the best chance of securing that customer.

How long does it take to build a website?

It depends. Websites can come in all different shapes and sizes, from one page brochure websites, to multiple page sites with an integrated online store. There are several stages to complete prior to launching the website, so we will keep you updated throughout the entire build.

What does SEO friendly mean?

When it comes to your website, you want to ensure that it is SEO friendly. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. This is the process of ensuring your website appears in front of your potential customers when they are searching for the services you offer. To continually improve your search performance and keep on top of any algorithm changes we recommend taking out a monthly SEO plan but you can certainly get a head start with an initial SEO boost when the website is first created even if you do not invest in a monthly plan.

Why do I need a mobile responsive website?

With so many people now using a mobile device to view websites online, over 50% in fact, you have to make sure your website is responsive in its design across multiple devices and screen sizes. We create websites that not only look great on a desktop computer, but on tablets and mobiles too.
