Mobile First Web Design Services
According to most of the websites that SpidrWeb create and maintain, looking at analytics, approximately 50% of devices viewing the pages are either mobile phones or tablets.The remaining 50% are traditional desktops or laptops.
With this in mind, We always design our sites as responsive Mobile-First knowing that half of your users will be using their phones to view your content. Whats more, having a mobile ready website makes your business much more friendly for SEO too.
As with our web design, Wordpress is our go-to platform when it comes to architecting and designing your mobile site
With a vast array of premium responsive mobile ready themes and SpidrWeb responsive custom theme development, theres literally anything we can do for your visitors.
SpidrWeb design bespoke responsive mobile first templates or utilise and modify existing premium ones for you.
We do find that most of our customers choose a premium theme as it not only saves time, but also saves money.
Whatever option you choose, we will still make your mobile site look and feel amazing for your visitors.
Using your mobile device to purchase items online is becoming more common as well. Especially since the invent of Apple Pay and Google Pay, giving users the ability to pay for items on your site by these methods is becomming more and more common.
Giving this extra ability for end users to add to their cart and without the need to find their credit card, we find that goals are met much quicker for transactions. The same payment gateways are used, for example, Stripe, WorldPay, Paypal etc.
Just like our web design, SpidrWeb can create custom application portals for your site visitors.
Giving users the ability to upload images taken directly from their mobile to your bespoke application for example makes life so much easier for you and your staff. This, tied with a custom app available through the App Store or Google Play makes your website a very valuable asset.
Anything from customer databases, HR systems, Doctor / Patient portals and much more.
All apps are secured by SSL Certificates, user / password and 2FA (Two Factor Authentication), so you know that you and your user's data will always be safe.
How we work
SpidrWeb work with you to define your goals and what you want your website to achieve.
We will scope out the work required to get your site up and running, agreeing timelines and milestones. A proof of concept website will be put in place for approval.
Upon agreeing the scope, SpiderWeb gets all the site architecture put in place complete with full security and best practices in mind.
The agreed design will be deployed. You’ll be able to see your site taking shape at this point as well.
All additional features of your site will be deployed alongside content as well.
This is where we invite you to try and break the site. At this phase, any issues found will be remedied prior to go-live.
The exciting day arrives, we open the doors to the world, and everyone can see your hard work!

Can I view my website while it's being built?
Absolutely – we will provide log in details so you can approve design elements and suggest any changes that you require.
Will my new website work on a mobile or a tablet?
100%, of course. We design with a ‘mobile-first’ responsive design mindset ensuring that all mobiles and tablets will display your site and entire contents with a great user experience.
Do you offer alternative CMS platforms such as Joomla, Drupal, Magento etc?
Yes – we have experience in all of these CMS platforms.
Does SpidrWeb offer content writing?
In a word, yes. It’s not written by us – we manage and outsource the writing to a reputable natively speaking writing service based in the UK. Content writing is charged extra. If you don’t have any content, we will fill your site with filler text so you can get a good feel for the new site.
