No hesitation in recommending. Jackie and her team build clean websites. But more than that, Jackie spoke to me face to face about what my business is all about so I didn't feel I was getting an "off the shelf" site.
The Jackdaw Web Design tagline is 'Websites That Work', because that's exactly what we give you - a website that works for you, 24 hours a day. Let's face it, there's no point in spending good money on a website if it doesn't bring you the results you want.
We are a group of associates, each with our own specialism, and each of us is an expert in what we do, meaning that we give you the best possible website we can, without blowing your budget.
What makes a Jackdaw website different?
At Jackdaw Web Design we pride ourselves on getting you the best possible return on your investment, so every site is built with your customer and your business targets in mind.
We will work with you to give you a website which attracts as many visitors as possible, converts as many visitors to paying customers as possible, and which is unique to your organisation.
Every design project starts with a conversation between you and us so that we know exactly what you want your website to do for you.
Every single Jackdaw website comes with all of this as part of the price
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
All of our websites are built with search engines in mind, so every page will work on devices of all sizes, will load quickly and will have full on-page SEO using your target keyword phrases (and if you don't know what these are, we can help with that too!).
Safety and security
When you buy a Jackdaw website you're also buying peace of mind. All of our sites come with anti virus and firewall installed and configured, and if you use our hosting you also get daily backups, 60 days' maintenance to keep your site secure and up to date, a SSL certificate installed to keep your customer's data secure, AND the option to take out one of our annual support contracts leaving you free to grow your business while we look after your site.
They’re built to work on mobiles and tablets
More than 60% of internet searches are now made on mobile devices, so all of our websites are built to look good and, more importantly, to work correctly on mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets.
You can manage your own content
Every Jackdaw website is built using WordPress, the world’s most popular content management system.
And every Jackdaw website comes with training to teach you and your team to manage your own content so that you don’t have to keep paying us to make content changes to your site.
Branding and Graphic Design
Whether you're a start up looking for a new online presence, or an established company looking for some extra zing, we can help you with your brand.
Good graphic design will create that critical first impression to draw your visitors further into your website, and because it's done with you, your customers and your values in mind, it will make you and your brand stand out from the crowd.
But we can help even more than that. We can work with you on a full branding package, from identifying your ideal customer, through designing a logo, deciding on colours and even words that reflect your values, right through to providing a full branding package for both web and print.
We do this in association with Amy Purdie of Whiteacres Design who has over 10 years' experience in working with small businesses to help them grow your business. Find out more about how we can help with your branding and graphic design here.
Photography really can make or break your website. You can have the best customer journey, the most amazing graphics, but if you then use fuzzy snaps from a mobile phone you've thrown your hard-earned money away.
If your budget is tight, well-chosen stock photographs that resonate with your brand and values can be a good solution, though you run the risk of seeing the same ones in other places too.
To really make your website sing, the best solution by far is to have photographs taken just for you - photos of your products, in your environment, and photos of you and your team. And the best person to take those for you is Sue Todd of Sue Todd Photography, who excels at product photos and does a fine job with headshots too (she did all of mine for me).
Copywriting and content marketing
You've now got your beautiful website with gorgeous graphics and stunning photos, but there's still one thing missing - the words. And that's where we can help again.
Maybe you don't have time to come up with search-engine friendly, compelling copy for your website, or maybe you've tried to do it in the past and it just hasn't worked to get your visitors to convert into customers. Or maybe you just hate writing - too many memories of forced compositions at school (we all suffer from that one!).
Lesley Renwick of Uberella Enterprises is a writer and content marketer by trade - it's what she does and she's damned good at it! Not only will she research your business and research your ideal customer, she'll also make sure the copy is search-engine friendly and written in a style to draw your visitors in. And then when she's done that, she can do the content marketing for you too!

If you're still unsure about whether or not we're the right people to help you take your business to the next level, you might want to have a look at our website price calculator - you'll be amazed at what you can get for your budget!
