SME Design has developed a broad range of Websites including Business sites, Information sites, Ecommerce and web sites for Sports clubs and Community Groups. We have developed sites targeting potential customers for a local bricks and mortar business to developing affiliate sites that compete on the USA market

Occasionally we are asked what does SME stand for? Answer  – Small Medium Enterprise.

This is our focus as we are experienced in operating businesses in this space. The proprietor of SME Design, Mark Smith, has purchased businesses and has developed strategies to turn loss making businesses into profitable concerns.

Over the last 6 months 90% of our jobs have been working with clients that have existing websites that are not performing to their expectations. We will perform a site audit and discuss with the client about the client base they are willing to attract and create strategies to gain ranking, therefore an increase in relevant traffic. Then creating the site website to have a high conversion rate.

“You are after clients not just site visitors.”

Our background is in Marketing and Business Development and I am very experienced in managing  and being a proprietor of a small business. Through this experience we treat website deign as a marketing exercise rather than an “I.T.” exercise. This  experience also means we  understand the tribulations of running a small business and the difficulty of promoting a business in a cost effective manner. We are not techie geeks that attempt to mystify everything with jargon.

Focusing on the end goal is exceptionally important, as it is this end goal that drives the desire to excel in customer service.

We acknowledge that a big part of any relationship is communication , so clear communication is integral to business. Just like any industry there is a vocabulary of jargon that has been constructed by individuals that wish to over complicate issues. We promise to demystify and educate our clients so they are in a position to make informed decisions.

“Our philosophy is your website is not a separate entity to your business, but an integral part of your identification and your business branding.”

We have included a sample of our sites on this page. All our web Sites are designed to perform. The Web sites are easy to navigate around and designed to provide a rewarding and satisfying visitor experience. We design the web sites after consultation with our client, always keeping the end goal in mind. The majority of our work is renovating existing websites and providing solutions to all online marketing.

Many websites we establish we hand over to our clients to manage. Therefore they avoid ongoing costs. The downside is it is very likely the website will drop in Google ranking if not attended to. Clients also have a habit of forgetting to update the site which will allow the website to suffer from security vulnerabilities
