What’s the best CMS system

We’re often asked, “what’s the best CMS system?”. Of course, there’s not a straightforward answer. Webheads have been creating CMS websites for over 20 years. Being real coders we have our own Webheads CMS system. A bespoke, streamlined, PHP based system but this isn’t always the best solution for a client needs and we’re not here to reinvent the wheel if it’s not needed.  Rather than the likes of the somewhat outdated and resource hungry, Drupal or Joomla CMS systems, we use WordPress as a CMS framework. What we build into this framework is a fully bespoke and uniquely coded website – the design and coding is always bespoke. So why WordPress? We believe […]

Content – The Pros and Cons of Automatic vs. Responsive

What is Automatic Content? Automatic content relates to content that works and exists by itself automatically. While it may need a trigger to generate or appear, it does not rely on website visitors to click/tap somewhere for it to activate. An example of automatic content is that of a video. This may be set to play on the homepage of your website as soon as somebody lands on the page – their simple arrival signals the video to start playing by itself. Pros and Cons of Automatic Content The stellar pro related to automatic content is that there is little to no manpower work required for things to happen. Think of newsletter […]

Curated Content is Important at Webheads

Curated content shows those who interact with it that you know what you are talking about (and by extension what you are trying to sell). This fosters a sense of trust between your brand and potential customers. For example, would you moreso trust a brand of pet food that only talked about the flavour of the pet food; or a brand that could both talk about the flavours and the health benefits of the pet food? Distilling expertise into your sales and marketing communications can show that you are a reputable brand who fully understands your industry and the products and/or services that you are selling. Adding this information in subtle but […]

Instagram Marketing – Four Ways to Promote your Brand

Photo Ads The most popular form of Instagram marketing is that of photo ads. On your Instagram business profile, simply tap on the post you are looking to promote and then select “Promote” from the options. This will then let you set the promotion parameters such as the audience you are looking to reach, the duration you want the promotion to run for and also the maximum budget that you are looking to spend. Once these have been selected, simply tap on the promote button and pending a review (usually no more than sixty minutes), your promotion will be active on Instagram. For those familiar with social media marketing, this process will […]

It is no secret that we at Webheads are huge petrolheads and we have a big motorsport following in our offices.

In fact, combining the digital online realms with the word of motorsport is a passion of Webheads that has infiltrated our web design portfolio. One of our longstanding clients of motorsport website design is […]

Websites that make leads Happen are designed by Webheads

Happen came to Webheads as they were looking for a website design experience that could represent them around the world seamlessly. Therefore online branding took a big slant of the project with the need to present a cohesive image to website visitors from around the world. We took a less is more approach to their branding which paid off in spades. Strong colours juxtaposed against a clear white font and iconography made for an attention grabbing (but not abrasive) visual impact which keeps the eye drawn to the website. We were conscious that this needed to be a stoic and long-standing design, so we were sure to implement the colourings and stylings […]

Preparing for the Next Web Design Frontier – HTTP2

What do I need to know?: The main thing to take from all of this is that new developments bring with them new improvements. Websites designed on standard HTTP will still function as normal, but websites designed specifically for HTTP2 (or optimised for same) will perform that bit better. As we know with the competition online today, those searching online are spoilt for choice and may gravitate towards websites which load and perform better and faster than others as this forms part of a better overall Ux. This can get quite technical and dense; but it is suffice to say that HTTP2 is poised to become the new standard in swift and […]

Creative, Immersive and Responsive – The Webheads Way

Creative With thousands (if not millions) of new websites going live every year, it is getting that bit more difficult to stand out from the crowded online marketplace. Not so when you get your website designed by Webheads. Working for international brands and their respective brand presences and advertisments; Happen needed a website that remained true to this creative flux but could also manage the ongoing flux at the same time. We produced a slick and world-class platform for them that displayed both their own creativity and the creativity of the brands they work with. “We engaged with the Webheads team when we realised we’d reached a point in our business growth […]

Facebook Recommendations Reach UK Businesses

As a Business, what do I need to know? You need to know that the Facebook recommendations update is mainly for personal users to benefit from, but smart businesses can poise themselves to reap the benefits too. When a user posts a status stating the likes of “What events are on tonight?” or “Where is a good restaurant to eat on Thursday night?”, the Facebook algorithm kicks in. By recognising what the user has posted via the text they use (“What events”, “Where is a good restaurant” etc.), the comments they receive will be optimised for them. So if a friend recommends a restaurant by commenting on the status, if that restaurant […]

How we Design and Deploy a Fully Functioning eCommerce Website

When clients come to us seeking an online shop element for their business website, we always make sure to keep this at the forefront of our minds during the design process. This seeps into the overall layout and design of your website and also becomes evident in the imagery and text used within your website.
