You can come to Maxweb for a brand new website or to freshen up your existing website. We have great experience in all the popular platforms on the market and our multi-disciplined team collaborates on all our projects.
You may be coming to us for web design services, but graphic designers, UX specialists and SEO consultants will check your site as part of any work through our rigorous quality control process.
Some of the more popular platforms people ask us to both design and develop include:
WordPress is hugely popular, with over 800 million websites worldwide built on the platform. Highly customisable, WordPress is free to download, and with a huge selection of themes to choose from, a website can be set up on the platform super quickly.
However, many of the themes people purchase can come with issues or limited functionality. Here at Maxweb, we specialise in custom-built WordPress themes. By building our own themes, we can keep it super lightweight and only add code for what is necessary.
This could give you a speed advantage as your site will not be bloated with code or functionality you have no use for and only complicates matters when you decide to use any 3rd party integrations.
Originally developed for Blogging sites, it is the recommended platform for many small businesses, brochure websites and service providers.
If you are an e-Commerce business based in Chester, you will be familiar with Shopify. The popular platform is easy to set up and start selling your product online.
Most businesses that use Shopify buy a theme from the Shopify store. And although this can simplify matters, it can leave a lot of websites looking very similar.
As Shopify is not as straightforward to customise, say, compared to WordPress, you may need our development team to deploy any design changes to your theme.
Shopify is an ideal choice if you have a lot of products and want a straightforward website that allows you to sell nationwide.
Adobe Commerce – Formerly Magento
Like Shopify, Adobe Commerce (Magento) is an e-commerce platform. Highly customisable, it can bring benefits compared to Shopify if you have the resources in place.
Open source, you can do anything in Magento, not only on the front end but also in the back end, with highly customisable module creation and bespoke functionality.
Magento does require full-time development support to run efficiently, so the costs of running the platform can be greater for smaller companies. But in terms of potential, you are only limited by your imagination.
Wix is a popular, easy-to-use website builder. It is quite easy for beginners to build websites on Wix, but without coding experience, you may find exactly what you are after, just out of reach. Our website development team can help you alter your theme just the way you want.
Squarespace is another CMS that is easy to set up and start selling products online. The platform is customisable, but you may not get every feature you need on a downloaded theme. Our development team can build the functionality you need to help improve your website’s performance and usability.
There are also a host of other website platforms and development applications that our team has great experience with, from app development to custom-built websites using the latest agile architectures.
If you have a particular platform in mind and wish us to develop a bespoke website, you can chat with one of our developers and scope out the requirements before we proceed to a new website build.
