New Website for Wokingham Bikeathon

Webiste Refresh

The organisers of a well-established Berkshire cycling event recently commissioned us to do a makeover of their existing Bikeathon website in good time for this year’s event in June.  Having taken part in several cycling events myself (just a few!) this work was right up my street.  Of course my own experience meant I could completely appreciate the more specific requirements of a major cycling event website and we were thrilled to be invited to tender.

Happy Christmas to You All

2016 has been a very busy year at PS Web Design; we’ve met and worked with some amazing people and enjoyed building some truly varied and interesting websites.  It’s been especially rewarding to work with new start-up businesses, many of whom are first timers in the seemingly mysterious world of Google!

The Dragon is here

Unfortunately, a bad cold prevented me from taking up my place on the Fred Whitton Challenge in the Lakes.  I was gutted as this was to be a major part of my training for the Etape.

Wed Design Questions

A little self-indulgent I know, but bear with me here. I can happily say, without agenda, that above all else we want people to be totally happy with their website. Be this with us, or with another company, we don’t mind as long as they’re happy. With this in mind, I thought it might be helpful share a few pearls of wisdom on things to consider when you’re looking into getting a website for your business; It can be difficult to keep focused among all the sales talk and lovely designs.  You are about to invest considerable time and hard earned cash in possibly one of the most important aspects of your new (or re-branded) business and you don’t want to waste either.  Here we go: Read more

How can social media help boost site traffic and revenue?

social media ps web

Social media can be a bit of a big beast to tackle, most companies know what it’s all about, all you have to do is just post some bits and bobs on Facebook every now and then right? Well not exactly. A lot of companies seem to find themselves creating a Facebook page, or Twitter account, linking it to their website and then doing absolutely nothing with it. This is quite possibly the worst thing you can do. It is so important to understand why you’re using social media for your company, and not just setting up a couple of pages because “that’s what everyone else is doing”
