Tag Archive: Content Managed Websites

Using Google Analytics, a great tool for analysing your website traffic, we found since launching the UK Hyundai Club over 30% of its visitors were using a mobile device.

Like most websites which aren't mobile friendly, the statistics showed mobile users were much less likely to use the site:

  • - Over 60% of our mobile users left the site after viewing only one page
  • - Mobile users spent two-thirds less time on the website than desktop users.
  • - The Majority of mobile visits were first time visits, ie. less mobile visitors came back.

Not happy that the site was only reaching 70% of its potential we went to work making the website mobile friendly by adding a responsive layer to its design. Responsive design allows a website to be viewed on as many devices as possible including desktops, tablets and smart phones.

Although it's early days, Analytics for the last week show a marked improvement in our mobile visitor engagement:

  • - 30% of our mobile users left the site after viewing only one page (50% improvement)
  • - Mobile users 80% longer on the website than before.
  • - 11% more Mobile users revisited the website.

TiburonAuto.co.uk, like many sites, hadn't changed much over the last 6 years as it's owner didn't have any easy way to make changes. We took the old site and gave it a fresh new look, while ensuring to keep match it's existing branding and colour scheme.

We didn't stop at just making the site look modern however, we also gave the Tiburon Automotive website a number of modern features, including Content Management allowing changes to be made to the site with ease by Ross at Tiburon Automotive without having to pay any extra costs.

Hair Cosmetics Ltd. are the number 1 hair and beauty wholesaler in the North East of England and, like many well established businesses, had a one page website which was, in the managing directors own words, "embarrassing".

We redesigned the Hair Cosmetics's website to give it a clean, crisp and professional look, which is responsive so can be viewed on all devices including mobiles and tablets. We also added an online store allowing them to sell their products to a greater audience.

The Managing Director was very happy with the new site and said

"When looking at my old site, I wonder what I've been paying for over the years"

Sometimes although a website may look good, it can be difficult to update due to lack of a content management system (CMS), or lack of time to update it. Using the industry leading CMS platform WordPress, we are able to convert static websites into easily update-able websites with a level of automation which will take the sting out of posting.

We decided to revamp one of our picture blog websites, CosplayCavern.com, but rather than design it from scratch, and to show an example of how Cyborg Industries convert existing designs to WordPress, we used a great design published on tuts+, adding all required widgets and added various automation techniques to keep the site updated without needing to post manually several times a day.

To update the website simply drag and drop an image onto the admin area which sets off a chain reaction of automation. A new post with the same title as the image is created, this post contains the image and an excerpt from Wikipedia on the subject. The post is then held in a queue to be published at random 2-3 times a day.

The automated updating process cuts process which would normally take about 30 minutes a day, right down to under an hour each month.

This automation process would be great for websites for photographers and websites for florists allowing you to give your visitors a reason to come back t your website with very little manual website updating.

Theres a lot to building a successful, engaging online community, our experience building up The UKHCC from scratch made us well aware of that, which is why when we decided to take on the tough challenge of creating a community site for all UK Hyundai owners and enthusiasts we knew a forum, even with all the custom modifications we've written wouldn't be enough.

For The UK Hyundai Club we wanted to have a news platform, an online forum and a shop. Although a number of out of the box products attempt to provide all these features, none, in our opinion achieve all to a good standard.

The 3 website sections are built using 3 different popular pieces of software; WordPress, PHPBB and ZenCart, which have all been modified to give a continuous look throughout the whole site to enforce the website brand.
