Ninja by Design
Manor Castle, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
We offer affordable website design services to businesses large or small, making good website design easily affordable and accessible even on a tight budget, unlike many design agencies we don’t just design your site and then leave you to it we pride ourselves on outstanding customer support and we will continue to help you throughout your time with us.
We have recently moved over to using CMS (Content Management System) platforms for most of our development as this is cost effective for many of our clients who wish to amend or add content to their own websites. WordPress is the most popular system and we can provide access to video training to assist our clients in learning how to update and add content to their own website when they use WordPress CMS.
We also provide non CMS development which may be more cost effective if the client is only providing static information which is unlikely to change over time.

Ninja by Design Q&A
What makes a great website?
A great website is one that is well researched and provides exactly what your ideal customer will be looking for, this is why discovery is essential for any website project. It should also be a responsive design adapting to all screen sizes and fast loading but content is king if you don't have the right content tailored to your target market it wont provide a return on your investment.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
Why they want a website? What they hope to achieve from their website? Who their target market is? What their prospective customers might be searching for? I have a very detailed discovery process which identifies everything I need to know to build a clients website.
What do you love most about your job?
I love coding websites and also making them look beautiful but most of all I like helping people achieve online success.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I like being my own boss, not being tied down by the way others think you should answer questions or how they think something should be done. I've always walked my own path and been my own person and rebelled against being a corporate clone.
Why should our clients choose you?
I aim to build long lasting good relationships with all my clients, I'm not here just for the money (although that really helps) but I'm here to support you and help you succeed.

Website Design & Development
We design and build quality websites that support your business and build on your brand. Are you frustrated or embarrassed by your current website design? Has your business outgrown your website and no longer meets your needs? Is it too complicated or difficult to maintain yourself? We can build a fresh, updated site everything you need to get you noticed by the right people. We want to make your website an investment that will work for you and not be just another expense. We work with businesses large and small to provide solutions to their problems, and make their lives easier. From a 1 page lead generating site to a full blown e-Commerce shop and everything in between. Unlike many website design firms we don’t just build you a website and leave you too it, we also provide ongoing training and support and a wide range of aftercare maintenance packages available. What We do… Everything starts with Discovery this is where we ask lots of questions to help us learn and understand you and your business. This is usually done in the form of questionnaires and conversations either face-to-face, via skype or by telephone. We then take all this information and come up with a solution to meet your requirements and present you with a proposal. We keep the proposals succinct and without unnecessary ‘fluff’ or jargon so make sure you can understand what we are offering and illustrate to you that we understand your requirements. Remember the proposal isn’t set in stone if you want to add something or remove something we will discuss all elements of the proposal with you before expecting you to sign on the dotted line. What we offer.. Our goal is to make your online strategy easy for you to get started, maintain and expand in the future. We know cost can be a factor so we offer two different ways to get you started, templated design or bespoke design. Templated design is great when you are on a budget but offers limited customisation to keep the cost down, the risks are your website may use exactly the same template. If you want to stand out from the crowd and have a healthy budget a bespoke design will be better suited to you and build on your brand. If you already have a website and just need a facelift, or moving to a better system we also offer redesign services, using your existing content this can be a quicker development than something completely new.
Website Maintenance & Support
Website maintenance is a vital aspect of owning a website itself, we see many sites that are run on wordpress using out of date themes, plugins and worst of all wordpress core files. These sites are more susceptible to hacking even with security software installed that's why we recommend having a maintenance plan in place, to keep everything ticking along smoothly without you having to worry about it. What our Maintenance Plans include.. Support time - Your time is precious and should be spent interacting with your customers and growing your business, not logging in and updating your website. Included support time can be used for things such as bug fixes, performance improvements, content updates, design updates – all those small tasks that keep a website ticking over, support time is used in 15 minute blocks which is usually the amount of time needed for small tasks. Software & Security Maintenance - Each week we perform a maintenance checklist to keep your website secure and running smoothly. This includes software updates, security scans, and performance optimisation, you will receive a monthly report to keep you up to date on what has been done or improved on your website. Video Tutorials - Easy to follow videos to help you manage your website content yourself. Performance Optimisation - A slow website will hurt your business a lot. That’s why we benchmark your website performance regularly and react if something goes wrong. Link Scan and Fixing - Broken links are bad for SEO, we can find and fix them for you. Cloud Based Backups - If an update fails, or your website crashes, it’s imperative to have an up-to-date backup of your website. We give you peace of mind by running scheduled backups and making sure that up-to-date backup is always ready SEO keyword ranking - The SEO ranking tool gives you all of the key metrics for your website. Not only that but it shows you your main competitors, saving you going out there and looking by yourself. It also gives you a timeline of how you rank, better or worse, and tracks your ranking position for you.
Website Speed Optimisation
The loading time of your website can affect your bottom line, loading time is a major contributing factor to page abandonment. Most site visitors don’t have the patience to wait for a page that’s taking to long to load. Decreasing Page Load Time Can Drastically Increase Conversions Can the speed of your website really have that much of an effect on your sales? According to several surveys, nearly half of web users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less, and they tend to abandon a site that isn’t loaded within 3 seconds. 79% of web shoppers who have trouble with website performance say they won’t return to the site to buy again and around 44% of them would tell a friend if they had a poor experience shopping online. This means you’re not just losing conversions from visitors currently on your site, but that loss is magnified to their friends and colleagues as well. The end result is lots of potential sales down the drain because of a few seconds difference. Any websites we design consistently load at under 3 seconds, It’s our knowledge of the more technical aspects of web development that allows us to provide high performing websites. This service includes the following elements: Optimisation report before any work is done. Recommendation Report specific to your website. Optimisation of Images Installation and configuration of best practice plugin’s to optimise speed Integration with cloudflare (if necessary) Integration with a CDN provider (if necessary or desired) Optimisation Report after work is completed This service includes 2 hours of development time to integrate any necessary fixes or improvements. FREE OPTIMISATION REPORT! We will give you an optimisation report for free to find out if your site would benefit from this service (sometimes you just simply need a new hosting provider)

Dales Looms - Static HTML & OpenCart
Dales Looms – Static HTML & OpenCart Dales Looms was an established business but primarily doing most of their sales via ebay. The website had been designed a couple of years ago and was very outdated, did not display on mobile devices and there was no online shopping to speak of, mainly just paypal add to cart buttons that often stopped working. Jon’s main issues were the amount he was being charged in eBay fee’s and the website was not gaining any orders. I redesigned his website using the bootstrap framework to make the site responsive, we found that OpenCart was the easiest for him to manage (we did try prestashop but it was overly complicated for his needs). He is now doing more sales through his online shop rather than eBay so saving money through not having to pay lots of fee’s and his website which was previously non existent to Google search is now on the front page of search for his niche. Jon know’s basic HTML and has decided to do most of the updates himself so Ninja by Design only get’s involved for major updates to the OpenCart system.

Sheffield CBT – Maintenance
We have been maintaining this website for a while now, the previous webmaster often asked Ninja By Design for help until earlier this year when it was transferred over to ourselves. We look after the security of the site and make any changes as requested on a PAYG basis. We also assisted with the transfer of the full site over to a new hosting company and provided technical support during this time.
Therapy Room Sheffield - Re-Design
Therapy Room Sheffield is a Holistic Center in Sheffield. The original website was built on WordPress but had not been updated since it was originally created in nearly 2 Years, WordPress and all plugins were seriously out of date which was a major security risk. The website itself had not been altered to accommodate the SSL certificate so occasionally the secured status of the website would disappear and it was not mobile responsive. We re-designed the site from the ground up and re-organized the information provided to visitors along with making it easier for the owners to update. Ordinarily I would have designed a separate look for the mobile home page, but the owner wished all the information to be visible across all devices.
Weight Loss Mastermind
Weight Loss Mastermind was a brand new project for one of my existing clients. The website has been designed to target clients looking to lose weight where standard methods of losing weight have failed them. This design started primarily with the Logo which was designed by a freelancer, this dictated the colour scheme for the website. The prime focus when developing this site was speed, explaining the process, showing success stories and of course getting people to contact Richard about his services, Richard has experience of developing his own successful websites in the past but knew that without my help he would not be able to get the website done in any reasonable time frame.
