Website and Web Solutions

What kind of website does your business need?

It's important that companies and organisations understand what they want their website to achieve. Do you want to build brand and product recognition, provide an information portal for clients, generate sales leads, or run a profitable webstore? Identifying goals and building web solutions that meet them is something Acre Technologies has been helping businesses with since 2007.

We build business websites that look great, have good design principles, get found on search engines, load quickly, display well on mobile devices, and meet your business needs.

It doesn't matter if you have an established brand identity, or are in the early stages of brand development; we'll work with you to design and build a website that performs.

Through close client consultation we make a plan that takes into consideration future development prospects, so that your website can be updated to adapt along with your business.

What makes Acre Technologies Websites any different?

Our websites are hand coded - we don't use third party template systems. This makes our websites leaner, faster, and more secure. It also means that we aren't constrained by template systems when it comes to developing specific solutions - we create exactly what your business needs.

Our sites are coded from the ground up to adhere to search engine requirements, so SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is built in from the beginning, not tacked on afterwards.

We understand that a website is part of a bigger marketing picture. If you require help with more than just a website, we'll help with that too! Read more here about our Marketing Solutions.

We don't abandon our clients when the job's done - we build relationships that last and continue the conversation so that you get the most out of your website.

Web Design

Web design is much more than fancy graphics.

A professional look needs to be backed up with an enjoyable user experience for your website visitor. Your website is often the first point of contact for potential clients, whose expectations for professional presentation and ease of use is higher than ever before. Fortunately, we have experience and an understanding of what real-world people like and expect to find when using a website. Things such as easy, logical navigation through the pages, easy to find contact details and good clear descriptions of products and services available, married with professional graphic design and presentation.

Today's websites must be able to be viewed on a large range of devices - everything from 4k Hi-def TV screens, desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. Google statistics report that roughly 60% of online browsing is done via mobile devices, so being mobile friendly is no longer an option to ignore.

The final look of your website is hugely important - client's impressions of a business can be affected by the smallest details - and creating a strong visual presentation that reflects your corporate identity is paramount.

SEO

A favourite buzzword of the industry, Search Engine Optimization is both simple and complex. Scare tactics, outrageous claims and expensive packages are the norm amongst many of companies offering you their services, and we recommend that you avoid dealing with anyone cold calling you to sell you SEO. While some may be able to deliver on the promise of an increase in visitors, rarely do these result in profitable leads or sales - numbers are meaningless unless these are genuine potential clients.

Customized solutions

Because we code by hand, our websites functionality is built to suit the user. Our solutions are custom coded from the ground up to achieve your goals.

Some of our custom solutions include:

  • Online Webstores.
  • A time management app that handles employee time clock check-in/check-out, payroll, and task management inhouse.

Fully Responsive Websites - Mobile Ready

Our websites are all built to be fully responsive - they are tested and display well on all devices - mobile phones, tablets, laptops desktops and 4k Tv screens. Google's requires websites to be responsive as over 60% of visitors use mobile devices to view websites. Websites that aren't responsive are penalized by ranking lower in web searches.

Acre Technologies builds all their websites to comply with Google requirements so your business website can rank as well as possible and be viewed by all potential customers without frustration.

Website Copy Creation

Writing copy that resonates with your customers, and contains valuable information for Search Engine Optimization is a professional skill that takes experience and talent. We work closely with a copy writer and journalist who can turn company info and specifications into readable copy, and interview clients for company testimonials.

Search Engines have progressed in the last year by leaps and bounds - they don't look for keyword saturation anymore, they analyse for readable copy to make sure the website will actually provide relevant information. This means websites need to be written to be read by regular humans, while professionally presenting services and products, and working with Search Engine specifications.

Graphics & Media Creation

We have a full in-house media creation team. We handle Photography, Videography, Graphic Design, 2D and 3D Illustration and Motion Graphics. No matter what your business does, we can provide the imagery you need.
