Who’s Looking for You?

Like a tree falling in the woods, a website doesn’t mean much if nobody is there to observe it – the last thing you want is a beautifully designed page that nobody ever visits! In this world of user-friendly mobile phones and tablets, people are less likely than ever to use bookmarks or type in a web address when they want a website.

Instead, they rely on search engines to direct them to the most relevant destinations. This means that pages ranking highly with Google and other search engines are far more likely to connect with potential customers than pages that don’t. Good web design needs to be conscious of the essential attributes that earn high rankings.

At IT Wollongong, we think that your website’s ability to attract and engage visitors is its most important design feature. Our priority is on delivering you a high-ranking website that’s easy to discover, and filled with unique and interesting content that makes visitors stick around and get involved. Whatever your business does, somebody is out there looking for you right now – so let them find you!

Our Web Design Philosophy

When you choose IT Wollongong, we won’t waste your time with fancy features you don’t want or add-ins you don’t understand. We do things the honest way – functional, no-nonsense design, coupled with quality unique content created specifically for your business.

All of our websites are sleek and streamlined, simple to use, and highly functional across desktop/laptop, tablet and mobile devices. It’s simple, really – when your website is easy to find and easy to use, your products or services are easy to buy!

Functionality First

Everybody wants their webpage to look great, but it’s easy to get caught up in fanciful designs that harm overall functionality. For a website to deliver a business advantage, usability needs to come first, so your visitors don’t get frustrated by gimmicks or confused by complicated layouts.

Our clean, responsive websites place important information front and centre, so your visitors know straight away that they’ve come to the right place.

  • Responsive design: One size doesn’t fit all! By creating responsive designs, we ensure that your website looks good across a variety of platforms and devices, while still maintaining a consistent visual style.
  • Loading Speed: Customers don’t want to wait around for a site to load, so if your website takes too long, they’re probably taking their business elsewhere. Our clutter-free approach to web design means that your pages load quickly, even over mobile connections.
  • Accessibility: Just like browsing devices, different users have different requirements. By exercising good accessibility principles in building your website, we make sure that visitors can access your site on their terms – so you don’t miss out on any potential customers.

Genuine Content

Human viewers and automated search engines may have different priorities, but they can certainly agree on one thing – a useful website has quality unique content.

Unfortunately, writing your own content can be difficult and time-consuming, especially when it comes to advertising your products or services! That’s why our web design packages come with high-quality unique content produced in consultation with you.

Whether it’s sales copy to promote your products, or an industry-related article to help visitors engage with your business and spend more time on your site, the content we produce is written specifically for your business, not re-used from elsewhere or based on existing boilerplate.

Your visitors will love the added value – and you’ll love the benefits of great search results!

  • Better for humans:Shopping around can be a frustrating experience. Visitors will appreciate receiving useful and easy-to-read information, that isn’t simply copied from other sites.
  • Better for sales:If your website’s content isn’t unique, visitors will find you less memorable and less engaging. Genuine content means helps visitors understand what you have to offer, and find what they’re looking for.
  • Better for rankings:Search engines penalise sites that have sparse low-quality content, or content duplicated elsewhere on the web. Having unique content means you get better rankings, and don’t get flagged as a copycat.

Web Design Packages

IT Wollongong offers a range of web design packages to suit a variety of budgets. With our fully hosted website packages, you can relax knowing that your hosting (site storage), domain name and regular maintenance are all included in one low annual fee.
