What type of website do you need? What features do you need? There are different types of websites depending on the functionalities you need and your goals. Some websites are static, others dynamic. Some require users to sign-up, others simply provide information about your product or service, and might rely on strong search engine optimisation to land in front of your audience’s eyes. We have categorised websites into three broad types: informational websites, blogs, web apps.
1. Informational website
An informational website is exactly what it says it is: a website you use to provide useful information to your audience about your products or services.
It usually takes us less than a month to deliver a fully-functioning informational website with a customised design. We also set-up search engine optimisation, Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and other important functionalities you need to get started.
An informational website can be a:
- Corporate website
- Content website
- Brand-building website
- Landing page
Blogging has become a core activity for almost any business, in any industry. More and more informational websites will have a blog. It’s a great way for your business to build relationships with your audience and search engines. A blog allows you to let your potential customers look at what your business is all about (your values and your mission in action). Depending on your goal, a blog can really inspire trust in your business and abilities.
We can design a useful blog for you. By useful, we mean that we carefully review your business to understand what needs to be included in your sidebar, footer, headers, and what call to actions to include depending on your goals and your audience’s needs.
Some functionalities you might be looking for are:
- Membership options
- Email subscription (with Mailchimp integration)
- Disqus integration
- Back-up system
- Search engine optimisation set-up
- Social media integration (your feeds & sharing options)
- And more

3. Web app
All of the above can be integrated into a web app. An informational website will show static content to your audience (like your homepage, blog, product and services pages). In addition to that, a web app will also show dynamic content. Some examples of web apps are Facebook and Airbnb.
Examples of web apps we have done are MyNewCaledonia, Property Analyser and Galleries (below). As you can see, a website app is a more complex website to build than an informational website. You are likely to need a sign-up and login system, an admin section, and maybe the use algorithms.
A lot of thought and organisation goes behind building a web app. We use a step-by-step process to make sure we always build a robust product from the start. We make sure we understand the goal of your business. If your goal is to accumulate a large user base, then we will make sure the web app is built to be scalable from day one. This avoids many hassles as you grow. This is just one example of how we think before we build.
A web app can be a:
- Community website
- News site
- Social networking site
- Photo sharing site
- Media-sharing site
- E-commerce site
- Booking system
- A website app linked to its mobile app
Hopefully this gives you some ideas of the things we can do. We are very comfortable taking on simple and complex projects. If you have one in mind, please contact us now so we can get started.
