Essiem Ltd. Q&A
What makes a great website?
A great website will give your customers exactly what they are looking for so they don’t need to go anywhere else. It will entice them, make them want to do business with you and, most crucially, make them take the next step by contacting you or buying your product/service online.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
I like to find out all about my clients business and how I can help them succeed online, so questions often include;
- Where would you like your business to be in 1 year, 2 years, 5 years?
- What do you want to use your website for?
- Who are your main competitors?
- Where does your new business come from?
Describe your creative process.
Honestly, I don't really have a standard creative process. Every client is different and I adapt my approach depending on what the client needs. I like to meet with all new clients to find out as much as I can about their business or organisation so I can really understand what success would look like to them and how I can help get them there. This makes the 'creative' part much easier as I can design something that exactly fits their needs as well as being something that their customers will love.
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
To kick off new projects I provide a free website consultation so that I can fully understand your website requirements. I’ll go through options on functionality, design, style and marketing to work out exactly what you need from your website. I’ll then send you a detailed proposal based on our meeting that clearly sets out the costs, timeframes and specifications of what I recommend. Once the client accepts the proposal then it's all systems go.
What do you love most about your job?
Definitely the people I have got to know. I have worked in such a wide range of industries over the years and have met some truly inspiring people growing their businesses - I love getting out of the office and finding about their worlds. Most of our customers have stayed with us for years so we've got some really great working relationships which we are very fortunate to have.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I come from a long line of entrepreneurs. Growing up I watched my father build and grow several different businesses and my grandfather build farms. I love having my own business - I get to build something that I am known for and work on my own idea of what a great business should be. I also love the flexibility it gives me and the time I get to spend with my children while they'e young.
Why should our clients choose you?
My number one goal is helping you succeed online. I have a great team of 'super-specialists' covering all aspects of web design and online marketing so whatever your needs are, I will offer you the dream team to get you there. I can work with all budgets and offer free consultations to talk through what we can do for you. Friendly, enthusiastic and down to earth. I'll even buy the coffee ;)

New design and enhanced function for this large UK car dealer.
Insignis Cars are a well known UK based car dealer with national coverage who specialise in left hand drive car imports. They also provide services to deal with modification and preparation of vehicles for imports in their own workshop. Multicurrency & Multi-Tax Support As Insignis deal with clients from all over the world, it was important that their website could adapt to show different currencies and individual tax requirements. We designed their website to so that customers can easily select and view all possible combinations of currency and tax. WooCommerce As Insignis Cars we were to looking to list all cars held in stock plus also all the models that they could source, we recommended and set up WooCommerce with a Wordpress Content Management System (CMS). This means they can list and maintain a huge database of stock on their website with minimum effort. "Essiem took the time to understand the intricacies of our business in doing so it enabled them to produce a site that met our spec in terms of content, functionality and looks without having to go back and forth and continually with alterations and missing features. Couldn’t be happier." - Chris Whiteman - Director
Full branding and CMS website for this international online art dealer
White Court Art is a world class online art gallery selling fine art internationally. They work with a range of well established artists to sell their work online across the world, distributing from three offices in the UK and New York. Branding The owners of White Court Art were looking for a new brand that would rank them alongside a number of other elite art galleries leading online sales. As they operate predominantly online, they also wanted their brand to be modern and contemporary to align with their medium. We created the new White Court Art branding which is now used across all their communication channels. Design Once the new branding was established we designed their bespoke website to reflect this, with a clean, modern design showcasing their artwork. The listing for each piece of art was created to give the feel of an information card in an art gallery, to give a personal touch and high quality user experience. Ease of adding art listings Being able to easily add and manage art listings was highly important for our customers due to the fast turnover of their stock. We delivered a custom build Content Management System (CMS) interface with upload buttons and simple text fields which was designed to automatically display the content in the desired format. This new upload and amend process was much quicker for the owners, meaning they could spend their valuable time on the business and not on managing the website. "Since our website design, the results have been phenomenal. We have had so much positive feedback, our artists love how their work is being presented and sales are really strong. It was a pleasure to work with the team and we highly recommend them to others." - Richard - Director
