The importance of a quality website
The internet is fast becoming an integral facet of business visibility and public image. A web presence that reflects a company's quality and professionalism is now more necessary than ever.
For many customers, their first point of contact with a business will be the website As such, it is important that your site be an attention-grabbing representation of the company's integrity and commitment to excellence.
At Dragonfly our ethos is that sites should be:
Easily found: Making your website prominently visible on the net is crucial. There's no point in investing in something that no-one sees. This is where Search Engine Optimisation comes in, and we provide it as standard with all our design work.
Fast download: This is a priority to ensure that people browsing your site don't get bored and move off too quickly. Through intelligent and tasteful design, we aim to provide your customers with the optimum viewing experience.
Visuals: Due to the large and growing volume of websites on the internet - coupled with the short attention span of most net surfers - it's essential that your site's graphical layout is eye-catching. Dragonfly aim for clean, stylish design, with information presented in a clear and concise fashion.
Functionality: We ensure that your website displays correctly across a wide range of browsers and platforms. Utilising the criteria of 'progressive enhancement', content can be made to suit everything from portable text-only devices to graphics-intensive desktops.
Updatability: Sites also need to provide scope for expansion. If required, we can develop yours with a blog-based updating system. This allows you and your staff to modify site content as easily as sending an e-mail, and eliminates the need for an expensive and time-consuming Content Management System.
Interactivity: Allows your site to function as a 24 hour member of staff; showcasing products, conducting customer research and boosting sales. Dragonfly develop a range of dynamic features, from data input forms to shopping carts.
Your website is an investment. We believe that the investment should be proportional to the expected return, and so we provide a range of options to suit your budget and requirements.
Assuring you of our utmost care and attention to detail.
