The Traditional Website Design Process Is Flawed!
The traditional website design process is flawed, a waste of time and most importantly a waste of money!
Yes I know, not what you were expecting to read on a website design agency’s website, but we have to say it. Luckily we do things differently now at Foamy Media, and this is why you need to keep reading….
The traditional way to get a new website developed is:
Speak to a few local companies, get some quotations and either chose the cheapest, or the company you connected with the most.
This company will then spend the next 3-6 months building your site getting it absolutely perfect for you to launch.
You launch the new website with a wave of excitement and hope it will bring you in lots of new business – which it doesn’t.
So you forget about it and leave it to sit there looking pretty, but bringing in little or no new business.
All you have done is WASTED a few thousands pounds on a shiny new website, you could have used that money so much better.
And this is where we come in and do things differently…
"We have had great responses to our new website. Rob dealt with and understood what we required to help our business and our clients understand what we offer. Thanks to Red Box for creating a website that has helped our business grow. We enjoy working with Rob and his team"

So What Do We Do Differently?
We do not simply build websites for clients, we build platforms that enable more leads, sales and enquiries to flood into the business.
We have a proven 3 step process that enables us to design, develop and launch each website project within 8 weeks and then continue the relationship with our clients over the next 12 months and beyond.
Strategy - Our team looks at your business, its goals & objectives, your competition and your target market and we design and build a bespoke website to meet your exact needs - not just make it shiny!
Innitial design - Once we have all the information we require to design and build your new website project then we are able to start on the initial site design. This initial design will be a graphical representation of what your website will look like. Creating it as a graphic at this early stage allows us to make changes quickly, without needing to edit code.
Continued Development - A website should never stay still. We have changed our own website 5 times in the last 12 months and we have done this as we need to react and adapt to how our website visitors interact with our brand and messages. If we kept the website exactly the same over this time period we would not be meeting the needs of our visitors and as such missing out on new potential clients.
Keeping your website fresh, adding in new functionality when it is needed, reacting to market changes and optimising the site content and design based on real facts and data ensures the site becomes a much more effective online sales tool. With our All-Inclusive pay monthly package, you get regular updates included so your website can continue to grow and evolve with your business
All our projects costs the exact same amount!
How can this be? Surely all website projects are different and should be priced differently?
Using the traditional website design process then yes all websites would be priced differently as they take different lengths of time to complete. However, the main reason for the different prices is that waiting time is built in as well as scope creep.
We do not have any waiting time or scope creep so we are able to complete all projects within the same amount of time, meaning we can charge the same no matter what the project.
As we build a launch pad website within the 6 week period and then continuously optimise and improve it we do not need to get 100% of the detail in place at launch. This saves us time and means more complex projects can still launch quickly.
The more complex the website the bigger the continuous growth package is needed for us to complete each and every aspect of the site over the following months.
We do not make the websites more basic or remove key functionality - you still get the project you require. Due to better project management, better code practices and a complete strategy in place our team can design, develop, launch and grow your website much much more effectively than any other company using traditional website design practices could.
