THIS IS OUR PLAYING FIELD – THE DIGITAL SPHERE WE DOMINATE
Clients approach us for several different reasons. Each time we begin the process by isolating the exact marketing requirements they are looking to have fulfilled. We then proceed to define what our clients would deem a success to look like in these areas. Once these parameters have been defined, its straight onto smashing these goals for our clients and giving their businesses the support and boost they require.
We focus on creating user –friendly, secure websites that are aesthetically pleasing, easy to navigate and of industry standard. A good website takes into account both how your visitors utilise the site and how it will be indexed on search engines.
We keep these guidelines in mind when designing to ensure that websites have the perfect ratio of images and text.
P+H websites are laid out in an easy to read manner, while also meeting all the requirements for search engines, allowing you to appear in relevant search results relating to your services.

+ ONLINE STORES:
We create stores that allow for purchasing of products and services online. This method of sales is a rapidly expanding market due to the convenience factor for consumers.
We create online stores for businesses that assist them in entering into a far greater market place, one that is not as confined geographically as a traditional store locations are.
We take the items from your store stock list, photograph and index them per price and description. We then optimise products for a user- friendly online shopping experience that is guaranteed to increase your sales footprint.
+ SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION (SEO):
SEO is a combination of factors that determines where your website shows up when searched for online. Search Engine Optimization is an organic form of advertising.
