A web designer in Gauteng that can help your brand reach every corner of the web
There was a time when companies used to think local, serving clients in their local area and seldom thinking about the big world out there.
That time is totally over.
Today, you can take the best aspects of thinking local - like personalised service, excellent client relationships, and knowing your market - and use them to serve customers across the globe.
This opens up tons of new business opportunities, especially with the Rand making South African services attractive to foreign customers.
But here’s the thing - before you can reach those customers, you need to be visible online.
Cloudfusion provides a range of services that will help your brand stand out and help carve a niche for your business online. Here’s what we can do for you.
Web design and development
It all starts here. We strive to offer the best web design in Gauteng, crafting websites that showcase what you have to offer in visual language that speaks directly to your ideal customer.
A website is way more than a signboard on the internet with your contact details. It’s so much more than an online catalogue of products.
It’s a place where new customers come to explore and fall in love with your brand - and where regular customers come to get more of your fantastic offering.
To create a space on the web that draws customers like a magnet, we’ll channel our full expertise and creativity.
What does a web designer do anyway?
Do web designers really create online awesomeness like websites, apps and social media templates out of thin air?
It may seem like that to our customers, but in reality, there’s a lot of planning, research and step-by-step execution that goes into a successful project.
Web designers create unique digital real estate for their clients, combining branding, logo and product design with functional web design that makes the site easy to navigate and a pleasure to visit.
These are some of the features that we like to include in our web designs:
● Easy navigation - users don’t have all day to figure out how your site works. Easy navigation ensures that they’ll stay on your page and love what you have to offer.
● Browser-friendliness - whether your customers use Firefox, Chrome or Safari, your site needs to look its best across every browser platform.
● Mobile readiness - with most people browsing the net on their phones these days, chances are your website visitors may be using mobile. Your site needs to be ready!
● Responsive features and forms - if you’re going to give your website visitors buttons to click and contact forms to fill in, they need to work - and work awesomely.
These are just a few of the features that a great website needs to have. There may be many more, depending on your business and the requirements you have.
A good web designer should offer clients a unique, custom-made site that showcases their brand and speaks their customers’ language.
We will also need to get to know you and your brand better to make sure that our web design fits your business goals perfectly. Let’s chat about your web design needs today.
Today most people spend a lot of time using their smartphones - and we all have our favourite apps that we can’t do without.
If you’re planning to market your products and services online, wouldn’t you love your customers to have an app they can open and browse your offering?
Having your own app that customers can download for Android and iOS means that your brand and products will dominate the user experience - unlike online shopping apps where you’ll be. competing with thousands of other businesses.
Your app can also be a powerful marketing tool, especially if it becomes popular and starts to rank in the App Store or Play Store. Customers who may not know about your business from Google searches or social media could discover what you have to offer by downloading your app.
Once your app is downloaded and running, you’ll have as unique opportuinity to engage with your customers and offer one-click offers - not to mention exclusive offers for app users only.
The benefits of having an app are almost endless, but before you can enjoy them there’s one thing you’ll need - a killer app!
Cloudfusion is one of the most innovative web designers in Gauteng - and we’d love to create the perfect app for your business. Our app design process puts your business at the center of the action.
After we assess your specific e-commerce needs, we’ll create a unique platform for your brand, products and services that will keep your users engaged and increase your sales.
When it comes to being recognised and trusted in business, branding is everything. That’s why having an original, memorable brand design is non-negotiable.
From your company logo to the look of your website, app, company letterhead and business cards - and even the branding at your premises - our design skills are ready to make your business look great.
Once your brand is out there, it becomes the face of your company and the first thing that people think about when they hear your business’s name. That’s why it’s so important to get your branding right the first time.
For startup branding, we work closely with company owners to understand exactly what type of image they’d like to create with their brand. After looking at competitors and successful branding case studies from other industries, we’ll provide a draft design that showcases your brand.
The next phase of branding design is all about the small details. From fonts and colours to the contours of your company logo, we’ll dive deep to create the ideal visual language for your business.
Your brand is the language you’ll be using to communicate with your customers without even saying a word - that’s how powerful good brand design can be for your business.
Social Media Marketing
With a website that’s a pleasure to browse, an app that puts your business right in your customer’s hand, and awesome branding to boot, you’ll be ready to go out there and bring in business.
But first, the world needs to know that you exist. That’s where social media marketing comes in.
Most people spend hours online every day, and most of those hours are spent on social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and others.
Since your customers are on social media most of the time, what you need is to be there too. If you’re not, you’ll be missing out on opportunities to engage and grow your client base.
To get started on social media, you’ll probably need the following:
● A Twitter account.
● A Facebook page for your business.
● LinkedIn profiles for you and your key team members.
● An Instagram account - especially if you’d like to showcase images of your products.
Once these accounts are set up, they will need to be customised with images that match your branding policy and contact details, so clients can get in touch with you.
They’ll also need to be actively managed and packed with useful content to keep your followers happy and get those likes and retweets flowing.
If the thought of setting up and managing your social media marketing seems scary, there’s no need to worry - Cloudfusion has you covered. As a forward-thinking web design agency based in Gauteng, we also offer social media marketing solutions to clients just like you.
