Website Design & Development

Beautiful, intelligent websites with meticulous marketing and industry leading SEO

Your most important asset...

Your website has one hell of a job to do. It has to be found. It has to communicate your identity and mission. It has to look the part. It has to provide directions. It must convince the user to take action. It absolutely, positively has to be easy to use. The site must generate leads and enquiries. It has to sell. The site needs to work on the smallest phone screens to the largest computers. It has to be a shop window and a publishing platform. It must be the best. Fail here and fail hard.

  • Website Design

    Design is important but a website has many jobs to do so the design must be functional. We must consider who your customers are, how they found your site, what page they land on and their goals and that's just for starters.

    We look at the job from your clients perspective. What do they need to do? How can we be cool and creative yet address the real, functional needs of your visitors? Ultimately we want a website design with beauty and brains.

  • Content Management

    Modern websites all allow for some degree of publishing - be that news, products, blog posts, downloads or whatever your requirement may be. We work with a range of publishing systems from WordPress & Joomla to Shopify & Magento.

    We will work with you to determine the best content management system (CMS) for your unique requirements and we will ensure the tool chosen is the right fit for the job. This is all supplemented by our expert CMS, SEO and marketing knowledge.

  • Mobile Friendly

    The web has gone mobile and chances are over 50% of visits to your site are from a mobile phone. The old adage of mobile friendly is no longer relevant and mobile first is more suitable.

    Your site should adapt and respond to provide a perfect experience on phones, tablets, desktops and everything inbetween.

  • SEO & Digital Marketing

    What good is a site without visitors? Your website is a 24/7 salesperson on a relentless crusade to generate more sales and enquries. Or at least it should be. But SEO and digital marketing is not something you can just bolt on when the site launches.

    We strive to understand your audience and business goals. We then take this information and use our experience of the digital marketing landscape to help build a marketing vehicle with your website at the centre.

  • User Experience & Conversion

    How do consumers really use websites? Do they read what you have to say? Do they care? Or do they just skim? Do people behave differently on mobile? Why are people not getting in touch?

    Web & mobile usability. Intuitive navigation. All sounds a bit complicated but really, at the heart of user experience is good old fashioned common sense. We get inside the head of your users and then measure behaviour to derive insight and constant improvement.

A word from our clients

    Kate Manion - Custard Factory

    I have worked with Bowler Hat for two years and the results they have achieved have been fantastic. Our organic search visibility is the highest it has ever been and the PPC campaigns have increased attendance at our events and generated high quality office leads. Crucially, they are also a pleasure to work with – a lovely, friendly team who I always look forward to having meetings with.

    The level of service I have received has been excellent from 2007 to the present day. Our company relies on our website as a main source of income and without Bowler Hat working hard to improve traffic and conversion rates we would not have survived these unstable economic times of recent. If you are looking for a no nonsense web design and SEO company then I highly recommend Bowler Hat.

    Warwick Kay - Adventure Graphics

    Adventure Graphics have worked with Bowler Hat for a while now after bad experiences with other SEO Companies. We work with a lot of small businesses and Marcus and the Bowler Hat team always provide a high quality service. It is refreshing to find an SEO consultant that is not trying to overcharge you and that consistently delivers results. Highly Recommended.
