Piccante Web Design is an established design and internet services business, registered in Hong Kong providing internet services to clients around the world. I provide outstanding value for money, excellence in design and superior levels of customer support and service.
My design philosophy
My design philosophy is simple - to reach the perfect balance between form and function in each website we produce. Aesthetically pleasing, high impact sites that don't compromise simplicity or elegance. Consistency in navigation, perfectly browser and device-proof, minimalist where effective, detailed when required.
Responsive web design is an essential tool that I employ to ensure that a client should only need one website which fluidly reacts to a user's device and screen size, reducing the need for and cost of maintaining two or more websites.
The importance of having a mobile-friendly website has never been more important. Google is moving fast to offer improved Search Engine Results Page (SERP) rankings for websites with mobile-friendly websites, and according to their Product Manager Doantam Phan, they are moving one step beyond this, saying -
Although our search index will continue to be a single index of websites and apps, our algorithms will eventually primarily use the mobile version of a site's content to rank pages from that site, to understand structured data, and to show snippets from those pages in our results.
If your website is not designed for mobile use then you are being left behind with Google and other search engines are certain to follow with updates to their own search algorithms.
How I can help your business succeed
Getting your website online can be an expensive, frustrating and time-consuming experience. At Piccante Web Design we are absolutely committed to making your web project stress-free and dare I say it, perhaps even enjoyable.
I know small businesses well and realise that there is not always an unlimited budget for these ventures. I genuinely want your business to succeed and by keeping my prices down I can help you realise your financial goals sooner.
My overheads are low (working from home means no office-space rent, receptionist or staff costs) and these savings are passed on to you - the client. Publishing my prices online is a huge advantage as projects will remain within budget and there are never any nasty 'surprises' when the website development is complete.
I do not outsource or sub-contract
An important point that I would like to make is that I do not outsource any of my services. Why is this important? By keeping my services 100% inhouse I am able to:
- Carefully monitor and control the quality of my web products
- Keep the lines of communication clear and open without having to involve a third party
- Ensure that timeline goals are reached which may be compromised by employing a third party
- Maintain 100% ownership of, and take complete responsibility for my reputation
Give your business a head-start online
Each and every website is designed using semantically correct code that is lightweight and therefore fast loading, helping with your 'organic' (or free) search engine results - often called Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
Full Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) services are pitched to help you get your business even better results without costing the earth. I also have an Email Marketing Package to improve the quality of your emails to your existing client list.
Additionally I can provide an ongoing service to actively manage or provide guidance for your SEO or SEM programmes, harvest reciprocal links and handle your Google Adwords campaigns.
Ongoing website maintenance and website support
Need to update your site? No problem, just send us an email and I will make the changes for a nominal fee, normally done within 24 hours. I also offer a Do-It-Yourself editing system that I can build in to your existing or new website.
