VM has extensive experience in designing conversion-based and organic search-friendly websites. We work to deliver the best web design for companies in hospitality, property, interiors, commercial, corporate, and education.
Websites are your shop window, the first impression that a customer gets of your business, and if anything doesn’t function properly or is difficult to navigate because of poor structure, the user may get frustrated with the user experience and user interface and leave the website, which leads to a loss of potential business and a negative experience.
As part of your digital marketing strategy, website design and development should be a focused starting point, it’s a place for customers to learn more about how to do business with your brand, they should learn more about your products or/and services, engage with you and/or make purchasing decisions from your business.
Once we have the brief for your website design project we take time to research the market niche on a local and global level to find opportunities that may be used for the website project
A sitemap is a blueprint for your website, we would not build a building without a blueprint plan.
This will help to stay focused on the content piece, design, and the development of the website with the best possible layout for user experience.
We create the content for what your business wants to be known for, and of course the value it can bring to your users.
As part of our content management, we offer topic research, keyword research, copywriting, proofreading, photography, video production, and content entry.
We create guidelines to follow your colour palette and typography.
As an option, we can also create a logo for your company.
You may have your brand guidelines, and you can provide those to us to follow for your website design project.
For your new website, we create a static mockup design of a landing page with two different samples, for you and your team to choose from.
We also create a service/product page mockup so you can get visualise the website before the website designer and developers begin the build.
Your website is then designed with the research, content, branding, and mockup design in mind, using the best practices and standards for UI (User Interface), User Experience (User Experience), Accessibility and Responsiveness.
Your website will have a bespoke WordPress CMS for your business so VM Digital or your in-house team can easily manage your content which includes adding, editing, updating, and deleting content.
The development is focused on the best practices for SEO, which means your website can be easily crawled and indexed in Search Engines. As an agency, we have web designers and developers that are obsessed with clean and well-structured code and optimising every element of the website, such as images to guarantee a fast website loading speed.
Your website will most likely require marketing forms such as contact forms, subscription forms, application forms, and quote forms which we can design and develop in-house for your company, so your website can generate new leads 24/7.
Marketing forms can also be integrated with the payment systems to generate conversions 24/7.
For automation, your marketing forms can be integrated with your systems such as customer relations management (CRM) systems.
Website GDPR has a significant role for a website, as it collects data, stores cookies on user devices that help with the user experience.

This will be a time when you, as our client, will review the website design and functionality from all the hard work we do together, to create a new masterpiece for the online world.
We will carry out 1-on-1 training with you and the required team members that will be managing the website content
We also provide the required documentation and video tutorials if requested on how to use different elements of your bespoke CMS.

It depends, each website that we make is completely bespoke and unique to every individual business and corporation and will have different objectives, goals, and strategy.
To give you a guide, it can range from €3000 + VAT for a custom brochure website and anywhere upwards from €8000 + VAT for an eCommerce website. It really depends on the complexity, but all of our websites are custom-built which means we don’t use available themes or many plugins to get the job done, as they have too much unnecessary functionality which slows down the website and puts security at risk.
