Our global client base relies on us not only for building visually magnetic and technically sophisticated web properties, but also for auxiliary services that breathe life into websites. As a one-stop shop for online marketing solutions, we can be relied on for related services such as:
We have the expertise to work with a wide range of CMS platforms including, but not limited to, the following:
Web design is the process of conceptualizing, creating, coding and refining a website’s visual and structural makeup. It is often more concerned with the front end of the website than the back end. It is also less concerned about software and web applications as it’s more focused on creating the webmaster’s intended look and feel for his audience.
Web design encompasses distinct but closely related areas of expertise including graphic design, information architecture, user experience design, code authoring and quality assurance. As such, web design can be performed by an individual with multiple skillsets or by a team with personnel who specialize in individual areas acting as an assembly line.
Web design is often confused with another discipline – web development. However, the two are different as web development is more concerned with getting websites up and running and less about how it looks. Web development work can range from something as simple as getting a single page text document on the web to something as complex as putting together an online banking system.
We follow a simplified, four-stage process for all of our web design projects. This process ensures that we’ve got all the bases covered while allowing full transparency for our clients every step of the way:
This is the part when we and the clients brainstorm on the ideal look and feel of the website. We will make creative and technical recommendations but at the end of the day, the client’s vision for his web property is the ultimate consideration.
After agreeing on the design overview, we will present wireframes and mock-ups for the client to inspect. This guarantees that everyone is on the same page and it eliminates unpleasant surprises on the client’s part.
This is the part when we put in the work in earnest. Design and development involves setting your CMS up on your servers, customizing its code, implementing the design, populating the site with content, integrating it with social media accounts, and more.
This is also the phase when the client is given a live preview of the website which he or she can critique. We will take note of each comment and apply revisions as needed.
When we’re absolutely sure that you’re happy with a preview of the site that we’ll put on a test server, we’ll schedule its go-live date and time. Throughout the launch process, we’ll take you by the hand until we’re 100% sure that the finished product is up to spec.
In the unlikely event that the unexpected happens, our team of seasoned web designers will be on standby to offer quick assistance.
If you require post-launch website maintenance or if you foresee the need for an on-going web design and development solution provider, SearchWorks has your back. We offer affordable retainer packages so you can get assistance anytime you need it. Let us do the technical stuff while you focus on growing your business.
At the turn of the century, broadband internet access started to proliferate globally, allowing businesses to operate offshore hubs despite geographic barriers. Initially, service outsourcing companies experimented with the idea of offshoring call center-type jobs. After finding great success with call centers, companies started looking for back office jobs – web design included.
Again, outsourcing proved to be a smart business move as companies started to realize a wide range of benefits including:
While outsourcing web design work is generally a good idea, it’s even better when you do it in the Philippines. The country has several distinct advantages over other countries where outsourcing has boomed, including:
It’s not just foreign businesses that actively seek web design services from the Philippines. As the Philippine economy grows at an average rate of 6% per year, millions of Filipinos are lifted out of poverty and domestic consumption flourishes. Today’s average Filipino enjoys greater spending power and spends a lot of time on the Internet. This means that many purchasing decisions are formed online, opening new horizons for local entrepreneurs.
Whether you sell online or you operate a brick-and-mortar store, having a presence on the web allows your target market to reach you more easily. Presenting an attractive and professional image with a website is critical for creating a lasting impression that converts visitors into paying customers. Gone are the days when having a website was a novelty for businesses. In today’s economy, an online presence often spells the difference between a thriving enterprise and one that lags behind.
SearchWorks Online Marketing offers professional web design services to Filipino businesses at rates that are appropriate for the local market. Our job is to fully understand your vision for your website and turn concepts into reality. Our team of web design experts do a great job of taking our clients by the hand and guiding them through the web design process. We explain each phase in plain English, allowing you to know what we’re doing all throughout the engagement.
Our mission is to help digitalize the Philippine business sector one website at a time in our own small way. In our view, helping businesses harness the power of today’s technology will pave the way for a brighter tomorrow for all Filipinos.
There are several ways you can outsource web design work from the Philippines. Each one has its own set of pros and cons. Here’s all you need to know about each one:
In-house web design involves the direct hiring of people who will work for your company exclusively. There will be no third party involved and all their time will be allotted to tasks that you give them.
A web design agency is a company that specializes in the craft of designing and developing websites. They can range to just a few people working together in an office to enterprise-level solution providers with more than a hundred employees. They are often government-registered, adding to their level of corporate polish.
Web design freelancers are individuals who practice their craft independent of employers. They often work from home-based offices and take on multiple clients at a time. Freelancers may be hired directly or via platforms such as oDesk and UpWork.
If you opt to hire a web design agency, you’ll need to keep in mind that not all agencies of this sort are equal. Some will be better suited for your needs than others. If you’re hiring a design agency for the first time, here are the things that you’ll want to keep an eye open for:
