You don’t need a website!
Obviously this is not what you expect to see on the website of a WordPress design agency who specialise in creating websites and marketing strategies for your business, but hear us out…
For different industries, a website can delivery varying levels of value and benefit to your business. If you run an E-Commerce business, then your website is vital for putting customers in front of your products and to encourage them to make a purchase from you. As a local plumber or electrician, your website can be a source of lead generation - bringing fresh enquiries and leads each week. You may even just have a website online that people can refer to simply as a trust factor to help build your brand and help prospective clients get to know you.
One thing that runs in common with all of these different website use cases is that a website alone, does not bring success and a never-ending supply of clients. People need to know, like and trust you in order to make a purchase from you. They need to be aware of your business and to be able to find you in the search engines.
So, you don’t need a website - you need a digital platform that delivers success.
We pride ourselves on creating Digital Success Platforms for our clients, to help them to not only have a beautiful website, but to also have a well executed marketing plan that will deliver clients and success to their business.
We work with clients who...
Our Approach as a WordPress design agency
Below is a typical example of our approach to website design and marketing projects. For projects that don't specifically fall under the scope of website design or marketing, e.g. brand identity, we still use the same principles to ensure we have a great process that delivers successful projects for our clients.
We kick off the project with the Discovery stage. In this, we explore your requirements to establish the brief for your website project or marketing campaign.
Once underway, we put together an outline of your website or marketing campaign. For websites this will be a prototype site, showing how pages link together and the framework. For a marketing campaign, this would be our campaign plan and schedule.
This is where the magic starts to happen. We'll flesh out website design projects with splashes of colour and build out the website around your content. For a marketing campaign, this would include the design of any graphical elements and ad copy.
Your new website is developed and tested thoroughly with you. Any final tweaks are made to the site, getting it ready for launch. For marketing campaigns, this stage is where we'll submit our initial ad copy and graphics for approval.
Your website has lift off! Time to enjoy your new website online and available for all to see. We support your website launch and our Care Plans provide you with continued support on a monthly basis. For marketing campaigns this is when we set the campaigns live, continuing to optimise as they progress, based on the available data.
First things first, it's important to make it clear that we don't hate sushi. In fact, far from it - sushi is a delicious snack that we regularly enjoy in the office. Our company name extends from a funny story that was fresh in the mind of Director, Matt Davies many years ago. If you're curious - we'll happily regale you with this story over a coffee and a good quality biscuit (if it doesn't dunk twice, it doesn't count).
Moving on to the exciting history of the company... AntiSushi started in 2008, primarily offering Website Design and Marketing services in the West Sussex area of the UK. We started the company to help local small and medium sized business owners to get their businesses online and in front of prospective clients. In September of 2009, we subsequently formed as a UK limited company - AntiSushi Ltd. The certificate of incorporation is still framed and displayed on the wall of our office - is that weird?
Since 2009, we've provided services to clients in over 20 different countries around the world. With a strong expertise in WordPress, Magento, SEO and Brand Identity - we're able to work effectively in many different areas. Many of our clients utilise a number of our services on an on-going basis, allowing us to be a full service WordPress design agency.
Matt is the original director and founder of the company. He has over 18 years of experience with website design, having created his first website when he was 15. Matt is the main website designer on our projects, so you'll benefit from his 15 years of experience with WordPress (since launch in mid-2003) and 10 years of experience with Magento (since 2008). He's also carried out marketing activities for clients for 12 years, specialising in SEO, PPC and Marketing Automation.
Mel joined the team in 2014, bringing considerable graphic design experience from her classically trained artistic background. Her strong eye for colour and creative brain has led to her developing some fantastic brand identities for our clients around the world. In addition to graphic design, Mel is an experienced writer and handles both copywriting and social media marketing.
Looking ahead, we're excited to be bringing a number of new features and services (keep an eye out for them soon). All of the services that we provide follow the simple question of 'Why' - one of the most important questions that you can ask in business. In simple terms, you - the business owner - are our 'Why'. We exist as a business to help you show off your creations and to get you in front of new customers. This is our passion, we live it every day and we look forward to sharing it with you.
