Our beginnings in web development
Digital Energy started life as a one-man web development studio in December 2014. Over the last eight years we've grown by powering our customers from start-ups through to businesses worth over £100 million, and ecommerce stores creating millions of pounds worth of revenue every year.
We now have an amazing team of developers and specialists in digital design and search marketing.
At Digital Energy we love to simplify things, providing reliable, great value website development that our customers utilise year after year using a step-by-step methodology that keep you in the driver's seat.
Following our 6 pillar web development process, we work hard to ensure that the projects we deliver are the best they can be, and always follow our quality assurance processes.
Our core web development best practices
Our developers work hard to deploy best practice code. Our deployments are designed to be fast, optimised for all devices and accessible at all times.
Concise & bloat (free code)
It's easy for developers to get into the trap of creating increasingly obfuscated code as customers’ requirements grow. This can spiral into increased complexity, that creates future development bottlenecks. At Digital Energy, we make sure every update we make is as optimised as it can be. Our code is always concise, fast and maintainable.
We don't mix code
We love to keep our project work clear and maintainable. This helps development speed and keeps things nice and simple. We don't mix HTML with inline Javscript or CSS, and we use development tools to combine and compress our files before deploying them to your customers.
Accessibility is at the heart of everything we do. A good site should be open to the world, regardless of disability. We design to the highest Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and use a range of tools ensure our results are world class. Regardless of disability, we'll always produce a fantastic end user experience.
Keep UX in mind
Our coders always have the end user in mind. We never create complexity for the sake of it. By having a well mapped brief, and applying our experience, we create websites and web applications geared towards ease of use.
Our web development services
We offer a range of web development services to meet your specific needs and can tailor packages to your requirements. We're flexible and love to chat about your options.
There really isn’t a right or wrong answer! Every website we build is completely bespoke to you and your needs. We ensure everything we build is optimised in the best way for your website or web applications purpose, whether this be e-commerce conversions, advertising your brand or creating an effective blog. Let’s have a chat, and we’ll take things from there!
Again, this can vary a good deal, based on your specific requirements. A typical web development project can take between one and three months to deploy, depending on the size of the site or web application, the amount of content needed, and the level of complexity involved. We are a people-oriented agency, and we will always work with you to help hit your deadlines wherever possible.
No! All our website work is fully bespoke, and we will leave you with a fast, optimised website that you will have full control over. We make sure that our clients can make changes to any content, images & menus throughout the sites we develop. You will also be able to create new pages and posts yourself (or with your team). We provide training on how to use the various CMS systems we use, so you’ll be confident using your new back-office system from day one.
At Digital Energy, we have been really lucky to work with some amazing clients such as BigChange and the NHS. But we also love working with our smaller clientele, to cut a long story short, we’re happy to work with companies with one employee to blue chips and large multinationals. We’ll make sure you still get the same amazing level of service, no matter what.
Not at all! Our web development work is always built to work on any device as standard. That means if you view your website on an iPhone or a 4k TV screen, we’ll make sure it displays correctly. We want your users to get a seamless experience no matter what.
A position one ranking on Google is like gold dust, but they are doable! We’ll create a website that’s optimised for SEO ranking, high accessibility, and a blazing fast and secure user experience. But above all, we’ll make sure your content is engaging. This provides a great foundation for an SEO campaign, but there’s still loads to do to rank well. Chat with us today to start your SEO journey.
If you just want us to make you a fantastic website, then no, there are no on-going costs. Websites require hosting and a domain; the hosting is a monthly cost that you pay us, or a third party. The domain is usually a small yearly cost you pay to maintain your domain (mygreaturl.com). We can either look after this for you, or you can handle this yourself, or use another third party.
We also offer ongoing maintenance plans which look after your site’s security and any updates that might need to be undertaken. If required, we also offer SEO and monthly ticketing plans, or ongoing retainers for regular work. If you want to know more, get in touch and we’ll run through all our options with you.
