Stand Out From The Crowd

Your Brand – Your Values

At the core of all the websites and online shops that we design is Security and Search Engine Optimisation, which go hand-in-hand for modern web applications and should not be left as afterthoughts in the design process.

Security

It doesn’t matter how small you are, you’re website is a target for organised cyber criminals and small-time hackers alike. Even if you do not run an online shop and have no data worth stealing, if you are not properly protected your website can become the launchpad for the nefarious activities of others, running their code in the background. This can cost you financially and can have a severe impact on your brand and reputation.

At Pharian IT Services we take cyber security very seriously. We will make sure that your hosting is secure and that only the right people have access to any sensitive data. We implement firewalls to prevent and monitor unauthorised access, we keep your site fully updated and we make sure that unnecessary code is removed to reduce the attack surface. We deploy strong two-factor and multi-factor authorisation for admin users, and we make sure that the correct notifications are in place when any changes are made that may affect security.

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of getting your website to appear high up in search engine rankings – hopefully appearing near the top on the first page of organic search results – and staying there consistently.

At Pharian IT Services we believe that having a simple, well organised structure to the pages of your site is fundamental to how you get indexed by search engines like Google and Bing. We also take a semantic, keyword focused approach to optimise the content on your pages, posts and images, properly marked up with meaningful MetaData and Open Graph tags, which is relevant to your business or organisation.

Finally, we make sure that your site is correctly registered with search engines to ensure regular crawling, and work hard to get outdated content removed.

Responsive Web Design

Your website and online shop should be responsive across a whole range of devices, including desktop computers, mobile phones, tablets and even smart watches.

Not only does the user experience (UX) need to be easy to navigate, but also the pages need to load quickly and resize seamlessly for different viewports, whilst all the time looking great.

Mobile-First Websites

Google and other popular search engines like Bing put considerable emphasis on the mobile version of your website, penalising your ranking in their search results if you do not properly optimise for mobile.

Our team of web designers always build mobile-first, responsive websites that load fast even when data is restricted or connection speeds are slow.

E-Commerce

If you wish to sell products or services online, your e-commerce solution is your digital shopfront and should welcome and engage both new and existing customers. It needs to be well organised, with your offerings grouped into logical categories and easy to find via search and simple navigation. Not only does it need to look professional and aesthetically pleasing, it needs to inspire confidence that you are a legitimate organisation.

Behind the scenes, it needs to be easy to administer. You need to be able to quickly add, remove and update products, with the ability to manage stock if necessary and to pause or hide items as and when. You may well want to mark orders as despatched or fulfilled, and you will need to store the relevant data for communicating with customers when problems arise.

You may even like to be able to offer discounts or BOGOF deals, different postage or delivery prices depending on the customer’s location or on the amount they order, free products or credit on their account.

At Pharian IT Services we are experts at designing and managing both simple and complicated e-commerce websites that get your products or services noticed. We have experience with all the major online selling platforms like Woocommerce, Shopify, Magento (Adobe Commerce) and Squarespace. We have also supported clients with OpenCart and on platforms like Wix. We will get your shop up and running fast.

The payment gateway you choose is very important and should provide a clean, simple interface to collect online payments with credit cards, PayPal, even bitcoin and other digital currencies. You may need to collect regular payments on a schedule, either by card or by embedding Direct Debit capture, great for subscriptions or membership renewals. We are very familiar with integrating the well known payment gateways like Square, Stripe & PayPal into websites and applications, and have worked with less known providers to get their API to work.

Have Your Own Hosting? No Problem

We also understand that you may well already have your own hosting provider or you may wish to use your own servers. At Pharian IT Services, we are used to developing with a variety of infrastructure and have expertise using Apache on all the major flavours of Linux and IIS on Windows.

Content Management Systems

It is rare these days for a website not to have a Content Management System (CMS). Simply put, a CMS is an application that includes a backend database, which helps you create and manage content for your website via a human-friendly interface rather than needing to work directly with code.

This can be blog posts, latest news items, page content or new products for your online shop. The beauty of a CMS is that once the website is up and running, the client can manage their own content, adding or amending when it suits them, without being dependant on the web development team.

Pharian IT Services have expertise with all the major CMSs including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. We can also support clients with CMSs more focused on e-Commerce like Squarespace and Shopify. Get In Touch if you’d like a no-obligation chat about your requirements.

WordPress Specialists

WordPress is by far the most popular CMS out there with 43% of the world’s websites built on this amazing platform. Because of this, the security and support available is second to none and the extensibility with Themes, Plugins and Widgets makes WordPress unbelievably versatile.

At Pharian IT Services, we have a wealth of experience at getting your website and online shop up and running fast. We are also experts at developing custom Themes, Plugins and Widgets, and can extend existing products like WooCommerce.

Social Media Integration

Facebook? Twitter? Instagram? YouTube? LinkedIn? TikTok? Whether you are a small business, freelancer, charity or club, it is highly unlikely that you do not have a social media presence, or you are at least thinking about it.

At Pharian IT Services, not only can we help you decide which social media platforms you should be active on, we can embed feeds from these on your website so your users can see what you are up to across the internet. Also, if you run an online shop we can synchronize your products to widen your audience coverage.

Embedded Reviews

Maybe you use Google Reviews or Google Shop Ratings, or perhaps you use Trustpilot, Checkatrade, Facebook Reviews, Feefo or a combination of these and other review sites to get feedback from your clients.

Reviews are a vital tool for businesses and are one of the best adverts you can have. At Pharian IT Services we can help you choose the best review platforms and make sure that these are highly visible on your site, and are updated automatically as new reviews are received.

Custom Forms & Sign Ups

As well as simple forms like on your contact page for users to get in touch or newsletter sign-ups, Pharian IT Services are also experts at embedding UK GDPR compliant custom forms that are used for lead generation, registration forms, surveys and data capture for free downloads.

Our development team can also seamlessly integrate these forms with third-party platforms like Mailchimp, HubSpot, Dynamics 365 and other Customer Relationship Management systems, empowering your Sales team.

Business Listings

Pharian IT Services will help you maximise your online presence with numerous, targeted business listings. Depending on the nature of your business, we will advise you on the best accounts to maintain, and will take the pain out of setting up and managing your online profiles.

As well as making sure your listing on Google Business Profile and Bing Places match the content on your website, we will make sure you are included in the major business directories and also research other possible listings on sites relevant to your profession.
