Why Use AWD

Experienced In-House TeamAs well as the security of working with a company that has been developing websites since 1999, you also get a dedicated team of skilled, qualified and experienced website designers and developers. The entire team are fulltime employees of the company, work directly form the offices and will have knowledge of your project. This means that our customers can speak directly to the people working on their website.
Bespoke ‘Responsive’ Website DesignAll websites are designed uniquely for the customer without using any limiting 'off the shelf' packages. The number of people now browsing the internet via mobile devices such as tables and smart phones has increased dramatically over the last few years, a trend which is only likely to increase as mobile connect to the internet improves and devices become more advanced.

We therefore also provide you with a fully 'responsive' website specifically designed and developed to provide the most optimal viewing experience across all browsing devices.

Bespoke Content Management System (CMS)Your website will come with an intuitive, bespoke Content Management System (CMS) that not only allows you to add/edit/delete all the imagery and copy on the website, but also expand the website by creating additional pages.

We also include a free CMS training session and Step-by-step guide, and if all that fails we're always on the end of the phone and happy to help out.

Testing - Multi-Browser and Multi-Device CompatibilityTo reduce the chance of errors once your website goes live, your website will go through a vigorous period of testing. This includes running the website on various browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari; mobile platforms such as Android, Windows and IOS, and on PC's, Mac's, Tables and Smart Phones.
Hosting and EmailsIn most cases, website we develop are hosted on one of our dedicated web servers which are all housed in secure UK data centres and backed up daily to three different systems including one off site location.

We also provide POP3 email addresses which can be accessed via webmail and set up on PC's, Tablets and Smart Phones.

After Sales serviceAs all of the website we develop come with a bespoke and intuitive content management system which allows customers to quickly and easily change the content of their website, we are rarely called upon. We are however always on hand should a customer require assistance or advise relating to the website or CMS.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)Whilst the website will naturally be designed and developed to consider search engine optimisation, we also use all of the most up-to-date methods as recommended by our SEO specialist partners, thus ensuring all websites we develop comply with best practice techniques in order to assist with the promotion of business's key words and any geographic operating locations.

For customers with an existing website, the attained 'Link Juice' their current website has built up will be transferred across to the new website, thus ensuring none of the existing SEO benefits are lost.

Social MediaThe use of social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to promote a business is a relatively new concept but should now be considered as an important tool to a business's marketing strategy. When used correctly it can be a cheap and effective way of promoting and enhancing both your website and business. We therefore help customers set up social media accounts, advice on the most relevant and how best to use them.
Content population In most cases the customer will populate a new website themselves with copy and imagery via their Content Management System. For 'time poor' customers we do offer a service where we will take on this role. For existing customers who are upgrading from a previous version, we will populate the new website with all the existing information as part of the project.
