As a website design business based in Cumbria and on the edge of the Lake District, some of our best clients have a presence in the farming community or businesses grown out of agriculture. Our website design services have catered to agricultural engineers, locally sourced food businesses, fertiliser suppliers, providers of agricultural machinery and suppliers, and tying it all together, not-for-profit organisation, The Farmer Network.
As farming communities become more and more dependent on the internet to help them make links with relevant services and providers, it is becoming increasingly important for businesses supplying in this area to make their presence known. Word of mouth will always be important in rural communities, but wouldn’t it be great if you also made that extra connection because your website and social media engagement really showed what you offer?
Farmers are often on the move and have little time to sit in front of a computer or phone round for information. More than ever, when they need something on the job, they are picking up their phone and relying on Google to help them find what they need. This means that the first time someone visits your website it’s likely to be on a mobile phone or tablet device. First impressions count, our websites are fully responsive meaning they look great and deliver the information you want to deliver on any device.
With many purchases made ‘on the hop’ these days, there is more pressure to make your products available online. Be it food produce, agricultural supplies or machinery there is always a solution. We build ecommerce websites which not only allow people to make direct purchases, but also enable them to ‘click & collect’ from your premises and for larger items, generate a sales lead though a product enquiry, which requires your personal touch. With many of our agricultural clients branching out with their first ecommerce website, a well built site is crucial in generating online success.
We work with businesses of varying scales. Some are small enough that they can handle orders placed via their website as well as updates to their website content. Others are large enough to employ people, dedicated to the upkeep of their website. Most are somewhere in between where they want some involvement but time is a factor. For that we can help. Through our support time we can manage the site for you including content updates, and where you want to be part of the picture we can support you in all you want to do. Built in WordPress, our websites are designed with the client in mind. We’re there if you need us but the website belongs to you.
