Strikingly website designer

Strikingly is a simple website builder to use, but you might want help to get started.

Advantage to a Strikingly website

Strikingly is an easy website builder for many to use. The advantage of a strikingly website over other builders such as WordPress, is the lack of site maintenance required and it’s easy to update yourself. Strikingly deals with all the technical aspects, leaving you to concentrate on the website itself. Managing and updating your site is also easy.

Building your Strikingly website

Building your initial website though can be a different thing. Although easy, it can be time consuming. Additionally, a good layout and design is not always easy to achieve. A good, professional look is very important. Strikingly has lots of great templates, sections and widgets, which helps for sure. Mind you, they also need to be customised to the look of your site..

Website user experience

It’s not just about creating a beautiful looking website, though. You also need to provide a great user experience. Visitors to your site must instantly see exactly what they are looking for. People have very short attention spans on the Internet these days. They should be immediately engaged and want to scroll on and navigate your website for more.

Therefore, it is also imperative that the site is easy to read, that relevant content sticks out and is clearly visible. The viewer must be able to focus on the parts of the page that relate to their enquiries.

Website navigation

Website navigation is also important. If visitors want to read more, continue on and look through your site, or have decided to purchase then they want to easily see how to do this. Call to action buttons must be clear and prominent, and internal page ads and button links much easily direct people to other relevant information or promote alternatives.

Highly professional and exceptional service, worth more than 5 Stars ! Ian transformed my antiquated website into a stunning modern website. Throughout the entire process Ian was available to offer advice and suggestions on the best build for my type of photography. This was a two-way engaging process with regular updates from Ian. In addition, Ian also gave me valuable advice and ideas on other features that could be implemented at a later stage. The whole process was very smooth and at the end Ian gave a very helpful Handover presentation via video call. Ian is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and clearly has a passion for his work, going above and beyond. Ian is very affable, our discussions during the video calls extended well beyond the website requirements into many other areas of photography and travel. I would definitely recommend Ian to anyone looking to build a website or who requires web related services.

I have used Ian twice now . First he consulted me when I started to design my first Word Press site. Then later at the end I had him come in and help me with some issues I had been unable to fix and put the finishing touches on the site, do the SEO and redo my choice of plugins. I realized then I should have brought him back into the project way before then. Ian is highly knowledgeable about WordPress and easy to work with. I highly recommend him for you WP project.

Ian has designed the most fantastic website for my photography workshops & tours business. From the very beginning Ian has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He is professional, enthusiastic and very personable. Not only did Ian work with me on my vision of what I wanted the website to accomplish, he also made numerous fantastic recommendations on how the website could further be enhanced and optimised for best performance and reach. Ian provided regular updates on how the site build was progressing and has talked us through all aspects of the site and it's running since it went live. He has great patience and answers questions without any delay. With his knowledge, expertise and recommendations I now have a website I feel truly showcases my photography business. I have no doubt my business will 100% benefit from the new website Ian has created. I would highly recommend Ian and the fantastic services he offers. If I could give 10 stars I would!

Ian Middleton designed a website for my photography workshop business. He is brilliant to put it simply. As a photographer himself he understood my needs and made helpful suggestions throughout regarding the design and also how we could optimise the website for SEO. He was, and continues to be, incredibly helpful and patient, and is always there to offer advice and assistance should I need it when updating the website myself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great looking and well performing website at a reasonable price.

What can I say! Ian was fantastic from the beginning concept to completion of the project and beyond with ongoing support. He listened to the vision I was after and made suggestions, not only with the design process, but also how he could optimise and maximise the platform online. Ian kept me informed with regular updates throughout, providing visuals on how the design was looking. Ian also provided me with ono to one training on how to amend and update the web page, during and after completion. He has a very calming and nurturing teaching style, and is very patient, which is great, as it can take me a while to grasp technical information! His knowledge on web design is top class and he really knows his stuff, to be able to advise as to the best design for your needs.I am so pleased with the platform he has created for me, and I am already experience an uplift in customers since the launch. I would thoroughly recommend Ian to anyone looking for this service, without hesitation. Paul Placitelli.
