Why companies choose a Rather Inventive Website
“A website allows us to tell our stories, our gospel. It is the online journey of Communion, there is so much going on in the company that the website needs to reflect this.
Rather Inventive are brilliant! Great technical knowledge, clear thinking, strategic, and easy to work with.”
“My old website no longer conveyed the image I wanted for my company. It was outdated and didn’t offer a good shopping experience for my customers.
The customers now find my new website informative, easy to navigate and they are confident they can shop safely.”

Web design project process
Projects are based around a number of Zoom calls. We start with planning the website objectives and how they benefit your audience through to a follow-up call when the site is live.
We use project communication and management tool Basecamp to keep everyone in the loop.
You’ll also be enrolled into my Marketing Club which provides loads more help and advice on website planning, blogging and SEO.
Site content and wireframe
Content is the keystone for any site and we start by creating a basic text only version of the site to focus on utility. Throughout the project we evolve the content and design to best attract the right people to the site and help them take the actions they need.
We also talk through Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), photography and video. And, if required, recommend specialists to create this for you.
Our collaborative and fluid development process encourages the ideas and concepts that best present your business to your customer, so you get more downloads, leads and sales. We guide you through the entire project as the site comes together.
All our websites are built in WordPress, it’s incredible flexible and easy to use with minimal training. Over 30% of the worlds websites run-on WordPress.
Site testing and review
We review and approve the draft site, test it and fix anything before launch. I handle all of the technical stuff with domains and hosting to make the transfer seamless.
Finally we’ll discuss future goals and marketing strategy, as well as providing the training you need to confidently manage your new website.
Organise a website briefing call with me to chat through your ideas.
