What do you actually need?

You need a website designed and built to drive more enquiries or sales for your business.

It also needs to load quickly, tick all of the SEO boxes, and be easy to grow and manage over time. The last thing you need is to redo your website every year due to a short-term view.

These core requirements have never changed, but so many get it wrong by trying to reinvent the wheel.

Not us. Over the years, we’ve learned that the ideal website:

  1. Offers a smooth and easy experience for visitors
  2. Is clearly ‘yours’ through good use of branding
  3. Loads quickly and without technical issues
  4. Is built with SEO in mind
  5. Allows you to easily add, change or remove pages
  6. Has minimal upkeep costs
  7. Converts well
  8. Doesn’t break the bank

“We’re delighted with the new TBG website!

Jakub and his team have been great, not only throughout the build process, but also providing support and recommendations post-launch.

We’re looking forward to working with team Cabana to ensure our website keeps delivering for us and our clients.”

Jenny Bowes, Marketing Manager at There Be Giants

We build great websites

The truth is, most agencies will hit a few of these points, but not all. And for good reason, it's hard to offer everything! But we wanted to find a way. So, we identified elements that are common to all great sites. We invested in research & development to create tech, automation, and processes to optimise for these similarities. And we packaged all of that up into a new way of building WordPress websites.

Visual

Cabana Web Standards

Over the years, we have developed criteria for how website content panels should look and work, including the layouts, information hierarchy, conversion points, presentation, and interactivity.

A carefully selected set of these panels will make up your website’s new wireframes. Your website visitors are in for a treat!

icon

Technical

In-House Framework

A fast website ranks higher in Google and generates more enquiries. It’s pretty simple, no one likes to wait.

Your new website is built on top of our in-house WordPress framework, which not only ensures your website is super-fast, it’s also future-proofed, easy to work with and ticks all the technical SEO checkboxes.

Fun

Great Experience

You’ll find the website build process to be simple and fun. From the mood board session through to launch, we make sure to keep you engaged, up to date, and excited for the final product.

We also know that change is inevitable. As you and your business grow, so does your website. With Cabana Web, your team is equipped with all the tools they edit and update your website with ease.

What’s all this talk of standards about?

Cars need standards. A car shouldn’t have five wheels just to be different, nor should the steering wheel or pedals work very differently from any other car.

They should, however, have a different look and feel to cater to different audiences.

Websites need standards too. The least we can do is ensure a consistent experience, tried and tested to deliver good results. We can layer on other elements to express your brand and personality.

Through a suite of panels (Cabana Web Standards) and our in-house WordPress framework, that’s exactly what we do.

The end result?

You get a top-quality new website, built quicker, for less. And that means more of your budget can go to better aligning what you offer with what your visitors want, where the visitors come from, and what ultimately makes them enquire.

We make the most of your budget.

By automating parts of the process, we managed to bring the time down across elements that shouldn’t be too different, driven by two simple mantras: “don’t make the visitor think” and “keep it simple silly”.

The majority of companies will benefit from this approach. Not only does it make financial sense and supports your growth, but we’ve also made the process smooth and fun.

First, we’ll host a mood board session to find out what design patterns you’re into. We’ll align the findings with our suite of panels to make sure we build not only something that works well but also something you’ll be proud to call yours. After all, you’ll spend more time visiting and managing your website than anyone else!

That’s all good, but I need a truly unique and bespoke design…

Of course, there are a few businesses that need to push the boundaries.

This is where our clients split into two groups. For most businesses, the right approach is to rely on our tried and tested suite of panels. But we offer a higher budget option for the few that need to be bold, different, and push the boundaries. We then combine our standards with new creative solutions to ensure the website achieves the objectives while maintaining its purpose – to generate more leads for your business.

Neither is right or wrong. Both options lead to equally great websites. It’s just a matter of what’s a good fit for your business.

Optimised

How is Cabana different to other agencies?

We’ve designed a suite of WordPress panels, built an in-house framework, and created a process that combines the easiest way to manage your website with the most effective content panels. This frees up more of your budget for driving traffic and generating leads.

To summarise, we’ve built some cool tech and applied it to the platform you know already to create a WordPress website design and development offering for SMEs.

icon

Experienced

And what about our team?

Our production team leads us, which means there’s no bloat compared to a traditional agency structure. You’ll work directly with the people responsible for creating a great website – our developers, designers and marketers.

Your project will be led by one of our directors, each with years of experience in the industry, so you can rest easy knowing that the right people are on hand.

Ready for a change?

We partner with a limited number of clients each year, with a long-term vision of helping their business grow.

 

We might not be the right fit for everyone, so our approach and priorities must align. Are you tired of over-promises and under-delivery? Want a website that simply works well and doesn’t get in the way of your growth? A friendly, empathetic and skilled development team? More budget to achieve your marketing objectives?

 

It’s time you discover Cabana.
