Website Design Cumbria from KCS
Responsive Website Design
With Google now giving priority to responsive websites that adapt and change to fit the users’ screen size, it’s much more important to have a mobile responsive website.
We design mobile-first, meaning we’ll decide how your website looks on mobile devices first (60%+ of website traffic comes from mobile!), and then work up to larger devices.

Website Design FAQs
We come across many questions when starting new projects and discussing websites with clients.
We’ve compiled some of the most common here.
A: Choosing a website designer is one of the most important steps of a web design project. Make sure you check any prospective website designers portfolio, testimonials, and even chat with a few of their clients. A quick call to real customers can be telling, both good and bad.
A: There’s no set price for a small business website. If you’re looking at a one-page website, your initial cost will be much lower. If your site is more complicated and includes bespoke functions and eCommerce (online shopping), you can expect to be paying much more.
Our one-page website design package costs £1200+VAT and includes your initial design, content population and SEO boost.
A: This is something we’ve discussed again and again on our blog. In 2021 especially, your website is the shop window for your business, and if you’re not online then you’re not going to be found. Check our article “Do I really need a website?” for a full answer.
A: Content. As the old SEO saying goes, “content is king”. It’s important both for search engines and your customers that the information on your website is relevant, readable and up-to-date. This includes everything from contact details to blog posts.
Another key consideration is design, with an estimated 60%+ of website traffic coming from mobile devices, it’s more important than ever to make sure your website displays on these smaller devices.
A: SEO or search engine optimisation is all about making sure your website gets found when people use search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo). By optimising your website for search engines you can target certain niches, keywords and search terms to bring relevant customers to your site.

WordPress Website Designers

By using WordPress, we can provide login details for you to add and edit the content on your website. This can be anything from blog posts, news articles, pages, videos and more. Don’t worry if you’re not tech-savvy – we provide a free training session with each website project and we’re always here to help should you need our assistance.
As well as website design, we can develop bespoke functionality for your website. We’ve built bespoke booking systems for Honister.com and Derwent Water Marina, developed an iOS and Android app for Keswick Ministries and an ordering system for Shortridge Laundry.
