These kind of websites can serve as extensions of offline media outlets, as well as collators and aggregators of news for small communities and niche audiences, whether on a local or global scale.

Community Websites

Community Websites

Community Websites are often communally owned Non-Profit organisations like trusts and charities, local projects and initiatives.

Community Forum

Every community needs a safe, secure and moderated forum where members can share ideas and information. We can set these up for you.

Membership Website

A membership website has a private 'gated' or 'paywall' area where subscribers can benefit from special offers and get access to exclusive content.

Mobile Only

Optimised for All Devices

As more users now access your website from mobile devices than desktops, and 95% of all mobile searches are done on Google, the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) landscape is undergoing a seismic shift. As such, Google's search results are now based only on the mobile-version of a website's page. This means that SEO is now solely about optimising for Mobile SEO. Which is why all our websites are now optimised for Mobile Only.

Micro Websites

Microsites

Microsites are small tightly-focused websites announcing, for example, a service or product launch, campaign, or forthcoming event. In these targeted situations they have some powerful advantages that can be leveraged.

Single Page Websites

Similar to Microsites, Single Page Websites work really well when there's not a lot of information required to achieve their goal or function. Their specificity makes them ideal for marketing and SEO purposes.

Brochure Websites

Brochure websites are like online business cards. They were popular in the early days, and even though they now have little value they may be a good place to start if cost is a very real issue. On the other hand, if cost really is an issue, then you'd be better off taking advantage of one of our Aftercare options.

Typography

They say 95% of the information on the internet is written, yet a website's typography is often overlooked. Not by us. We understand the importance of not only finding the right typeface to create a strong brand identity but also using typography as a User Interface (UI).

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

  • Why choose Peebles Web Design websites?

    Because they're highly professional and will fill you with confidence that you can now reach higher online, and grow from a position of strength to strength. You can get on with your business and watch your brand value and online presence flourish and thrive as we use the latest technologies and cutting-edge SEO to structure and design websites that attract attention, hold attention, and deliver measurable results. Think of us as an invisible member of your team, always fighting your corner in the highly competitive online world.

  • Does a better looking website mean higher search engine ranking?

    Under the surface of a well-designed website there's a lot of paddling going on... and a good looking, easy-to-use website is a very good indicator that behind the scenes the backend of the website has been professionally designed in terms of structure, usability, information architecture, and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) — all of which Google will take into account when ranking website pages higher in their search results.

    So, in a nutshell, yes. Our attention to detail both above and below the surface means your website will be sleek, streamlined and in perfect condition to rise up the rankings.

  • Do Peebles Website Designs include SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)?

    Yes. Totally. We’ve been doing SEO for more than a decade now, and it shows in our clients' results. We’re extremely good at it and getting better every day because we work with best SEO practices and emerging technologies every day. This gives all our websites a real fighting chance of hitting the sweetest spots of local search results pages, as well as the upper hand over poorly constructed, old and amateur websites that fail to grow and adapt to the ever-changing search engine algorithms.

  • Can Peebles Website designs get my website on the front page of Google's search results?

    Yes. Again, we're expert at what we do, and like all successful strategists we plan to win the wars and not just the minor skirmishes and battles. So if you have longterm goals and the will and patience to reach even higher, then ask us about our aftercare service which combines our successful blend of structure, strategy and action to steadily power your business up the rankings.

  • Does Peebles Web Design also do Web Hosting?

    Yes. All our local business websites include the option for secure hosting. And because we like to keep things simple — rather than offering a selection of convoluted plans with a gazillion features you’ll probably never need — we focus on giving you the essentials that will only have a positive impact on your business.

    We have one hosting plan at a very competitive price and because we build your website we know precisely what kind of hosting it needs — so that's exactly what it gets. No confusing tech specs and gigabit whotsits to worry about, simply get on with your business and behind the scenes we'll make sure everything works effortlessly for you.

  • Does Peebles Web Design offer Support and Aftercare?

    Yes we do. Our Support is personal and prompt, with meaningful results, whilst our aftercare services are more than simply insuring your website investment through regular maintenance, security updates and backup protection — they're firmly focused on future-proofing and growing your online business. Ask us about this and how we can tailor a plan that will precisely fit your needs.

  • Does Peebles Web Design do WordPress?

    Yes. We love it. It’s one of the most powerful tools in a webdesigner’s toolbox. Whether website design, build, upgrade, repair or redesign — we can help.

    We also offer professional Advice, Support and Training. And with their 30% marketshare and some of the world's most notable brands powered by WordPress, we can guide you through the minefield of its marketplace.

  • Do you have an all-inclusive package for those who don’t have the time or knowledge to manage their own website?

    Yes. Ask about our ’Full Scottish’. It’s the perfect stress-free solution for startups, as well as entrepreneurs who prefer to focus on the day-to-day demands of their business, while delegating their essential online presence to a real professional. Includes website design, hosting, SEO, support and aftercare. Monthly payment terms are also available.

  • Does Peebles Website Design offer monthly payment plans?

    Absolutely. We haven’t forgotten how hard it was when we started out so we’re happy to offer monthly payment plans for cash-strapped startups opting for one of our all-inclusive website solutions. If that's what you need, contact us today.

  • Do you only design websites for local businesses in Edinburgh, Peebles and the Scottish Borders?

    Not at all. We have a global client list we've built up over the years, but we really enjoy working hands-on with our local clients, whether in Edinburgh, Peebles, or elsewhere in the Scottish Borders.
