What We DoBased in Crawley, West Sussex
At Surfpoint, we like to build all our websites using the software WordPress. WordPress is a content management system for building amazing websites. It is versatile and easy to use, which is good news for anybody wishing to maintain their own website. It can be used for any type of website like ecommerce, brochure, blogs and many more. At this moment it powers over 43% of all websites on the internet. Massive names like Sony Music, PlayStation and The Rolling Stones all put their trust in the software.
When we have built your new website, it will need updating on a regular basis. Like all software it can fall foul to hackers and other issues if not maintained. If you don’t have the time to maintain it, we can do it for you for peace of mind.
We build all our e-Commerce websites with WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin. WooCommerce has everything you need to start your online shop. Once your website is built you will have the ability to add products, prices, SKUs, product variations, stock levels and much more. WooCommerce has its own built-in payment processing system that works with well with providers like PayPal and Stripe. It also accepts credit cards, bank transfers and cash on delivery (COD). You can also manage your product taxes with its automatic tax calculation for your country. It also makes managing your shipping costs a breeze with simple tools that auto-detects your customer’s address.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Having a flashy website alone won’t get you recognised on Google. If your website is not optimised for google and other search engines, then you won’t rank in their search engine results pages (SERPs). Before we start designing your website, we create a plan with you that matches your goals. Once we have all the information, we do intensive keyword research to give your website the perfect start.
Content Management System (CMS)
A content management system like WordPress is the most cost-effective way of running a website. The software helps you to manage and modify content on your own website without the need for coding knowledge like HTML, PHP and CSS. All you would need is to be able to find your way around a modern-day browser like Chrome of Firefox
Website Maintenance (WordPress)
All websites need to be updated on a regular basis, otherwise they leave themselves open to security issues. Routine maintenance on plugins, themes and the core of your website keeps a well performing website running smoothly. Our maintenance plans keep your website up to date with the latest updates and backups in the unlikely event you get hacked.
