How can we help you grow?
We use the best digital tools in the industry to help you attract new customers and grow your brand
The tools we use
WordPress powers 20% of the world’s websites and for good reason. It’s fast, it’s adaptable and it has a huge army of developers continually improving it.
Yes, you can choose something like Wix or GoDaddy’s builder if you really want. You can also poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick – in our opinion that would be less painful in the long term.
Up until a few years ago, we’d use something like Thrive Themes for each project. However, in our opinion the themes are a bit bloated and if you’re using the page builder (Thrive Architect) then there are better options for the base theme.
The best one we’ve found is the amazing GeneratePress. It’s lightweight, yet immensely powerful and if you’re a nerd like us, the underlying code is like poetry…
LIST BUILDING:Mailchimp & Active Campaign
If you’re just collecting emails and building a list, then you really can’t go wrong with the cheeky chimp that is Mailchimp.
However, for more complex projects that require some degree of automation, we turn to Active Campaign – those guys have made a product that’s simple to use, yet hugely powerful, and can cope with even the most complex of campaigns. (Sorry Infusionsoft – you’re just too clunky for us.)
This company has an amazing plugin that’s built for serious developers. It takes care of backups, security, image compression and page-speed and does it all without making a huge song and dance about it.
We love these guys.
Yes, you can get hosting for £2 a month… but you’ll be sharing a server with all the other cheapskates out there, meaning slow page-loading times, domain black-listing and terrible support.
Siteground have one of the best hosting networks in the world and are perfect for WordPress sites. Oh and the support is literally the best we’ve ever experienced.
What people are saying…
Whole Spectrum Ltd
Dallas Matthews have been my go-to web guys for a decade now and they’ve built and maintained three websites for me during that time.
They’re fast, flexible and not at all furious – in fact very patient and understanding of my attitude to IT in general – which is I know how I want it to look, and what I want it to do but I don’t want to know how to do it myself!
Al is a magician in that he turns my sometimes off the wall ideas into practical reality.
Whitewell Financial Planning
[Their] innovative approach has revolutionised my online marketing.
We have gone from 600 hits per month to over 1,500 in less than 3 months and regularly receive up to 70 leads, when before we were lucky to get 10!
There Be Giants
I have found the guys at Dallas Matthews to have a good deal of integrity – if they’re not the right people for the job then they will tell you and point you in the right direction.
I’ve recommended them to over 5 of my clients/associates so that’s got to say something!
