Web designer Dundee, Scotland

I was surprised to see how many web designers call Dundee home. No surprise that Dundee was listed as one of the top tech cities in the UK
So I made 14 Reviews.

The rankings on this page are made at the time of publishing, Google might rate these different over time and if you are one of the owners or founders listed here feel free to contact me to make a correction if needed. The ratings are mostly based on visibility and how easy it is to find the company.

The benchmark for the sites listed will be.

11. Personal Notes
The website is user-friendly, tidy and clean, there is no real call to action on the front page or on any of the pages I visited, so no lead magnet there, I would assume that they work mostly from word of mouth or PPC to segregated landing pages. Can’t imagine that they would have PPC campaigns to the home page. without any lead magnets.

I like the fact that I may request a quote from the homepage, and do understand that every project is different, However, it would be great to see a general service sheet that lists all the products on offer and a ballpark figure for these services.

Their biggest keyword would be
[web design company scotland]
but they might be missing out on an exact match
[web design edinburgh]

12. Customer support.
one of the best platforms I have seen and would recommend for any site would be JivoChat, This is an amazing tool, My favourite feature is instant callbacks that the user may request from the chat window. Click here to see

The brand is well defined and the BLUE COO mascot is awesome. I’m crazy about the mascot. It’s very clear that Caitlin takes pride in what she does and I would choose a personal touch over a large company where I’m not sure who I would deal with any day.

12. Customer service
I know it might seem as I am hammering on about this but JivoChat is a really nifty and awesome solution to get customers to speak with you directly from the website to your phone, They do offer a free package, see some of the features Click here to see

Reviews: NONE. ( there is no shortage of customers)
Barry would do very well to ask all his clients to rate his service on his GMB Pin. I’m, sure he would outrank MTC

Photos(best practices): Not a clear entrance picture and the picture gives me the idea that it is a logistics company more than a web design company, and not really conforming to best practices. Would be good to add pictures of the reception area and some fun team photos.

This site is blazing fast. and I’m sure Barry’s client sites are just as fast. I dod find some broken links on the site. but all in all This service offers an easy and cheap solution for self-managing sites. Potential clients may send an email from the site but How much more optimized would it be if they were able to open a chat on the site that popped up a chat on Barrys mobile phone, Jivo chat is such an app that works with a line of code.

Reviews: With only 2 reviews it’s hard to get a really true view of what’s going on there.

Photos(best practices): The first pin I see with loads of pictures, However it’s mostly of work for clients. The main purpose of the GMB pin photos is to give the public a better understanding of your office or workspace. What is the space going to look like when they visit you there.

11. Personal Notes.
My reccomendations are to send out an email to all existing clients asking them to please rate their service on the google my business pin. This will push rankings considerably.

and finally. on the Work page, there is a tiny phone Icon, I’m using desktop and clicked on it, all I got was a popup asking me, with which app I wanted to open the link.

Recommendation: I would strongly recommend a full circle client communications app like Jivo chat. This is an amazing experience for both the client and the site owner. With a simple line of code. Click here to see Jivos extended feature list.

I found two URLs that load very similar pages, I’m a bit confused as to which is which. depending on your perspective you might find some of the reviews a bit shocking. But then The reviews do not have anything to do with the actual service delivered. It does raise some questions but the overall sentiment about service is satisfactory.

Photos: a lot of duplication, and to be honest I m not sure if these are stock images or actual real work. There is at least one photo of the building. But as with the other pins, I rated. It falls short of the (best practices):

I get a good feeling when the page opens. But its quite busy and pulls my attention in different directions, I clicked through the site bus was not able to find their social media accounts, Similarly to the other sites I reviews there is no on-page prompt to start a conversation, The Jivo chat pops up after a set time, and makes one feel like there is someone on the other side that would like to talk with you.
