“What’s so special about a WebDog World-Class Website Package?”

At WebDog we’ve now extended our services to cater for those who want a World-Class Web presence quickly and affordably.

Because our systems are centrally managed, modular and templated we can create technically challenging sites that would otherwise be beyond the average budget … quickly and efficiently.

With over 5,500 super customisable templates to choose from, no two ever look the same, even if they use the same gorgeous template!

A WebDog website offers exactly the same platform gauk Media use to run a portfolio of sites that not only cope with unique requirements but handle many thousands of visitors on a daily basis.

Partner with a team of professionals who can do the job!

Over twelve years of running our own business online we’ve pretty much seen it all!

We’ve been let down time and time again by outsourcing web development to design agencies either on budget, time or simply quality of code.

There are many ways to build a website.  Line them up and they all look the same however, as a programmer eloquently put it, “different artists can paint the same subject in many different styles. Each will achieve the same objective, a nice painting of a tree for instance, but each has their own individual style.”

fixed pricesThe problem is there are better ways than others to programme a website … and how are you ever going to know if you’ve got a good one if you’re not a programmer? The sad fact is that you won’t until something breaks and it invariably does at the worst possible moment, right as you’ve launched a major promotion and people are flocking to your domain!

Adding to and Editing a WebDog Site

The biggest complaint we hear is from people who have purchased their new site is that they have to go to the developer every time they need something changing which always results in a fat little invoice.

To avoid this developers have started building content management systems (CMS), which allows the user to go in and edit various aspects.

Then there is another issue with using a developer’s CMS in that they will not let you move from their system.  If you are not happy sure they’ll give you the content (it’s yours) but the CMS is theirs! You don’t get to move your website.

So what’s the difference with WebDog?

The answer is simple!

YOU can go in and edit every single element WITHOUT the need to consult us.  Each site is controlled by a comprehensive management area that’s super-simple to use … if you can type a Word document you can use this!

Hosting and Security

webdog securityOur search auction search engine has been rebuilt from the ground up three times in the last six years.  It takes thousands of hours each time and the issue is that each time it’s finished it’s already out of date!

The decision was made to move over to the world’s most popular platform WordPress. This platform powers up to one fifth of the world’s websites. It is also open source which means that there’s an army of developers donating their considerable skills and time to upgrading and enhancing the content management system.

Firstly, we host WebDog sites on the same dedicated servers that host our own businesses so as you can imagine, there’s a vested interest in keeping them super fast and super clean.

A WebDog package includes a management plan.  We actively update your site every month with any available software and security updates.

Eventually, after so many costly disasters of our own, we decided to bring our programming ‘in house’ and this has been very successful.

We now have the confidence to offer options we use in the trenches on a daily basis to you!

So You’ve Got a BIG Idea? …
Now Who Are You Going to Trust To Develop it???

“I can vouch 100% percent for the service… the package is now so incredible I would not be without today … the team have added so much value … what they’ve developed is a total no brainer … Lastly the service is outstanding. Whenever I’ve had any questions support has come back super fast with answers to my queries.”

The process starts with a few simple questions:

  • Is it unique?
  • Is it memorable?
  • Does it invoke curiosity?
  • Does it differentiate you?
  • Does it aid recall of your proposition?
  • Does it convey your proposition?
  • Can it be registered as a trademark?
  • Will it engage your audience?
  • Can it support your positioning?
  • Does it establish your business’ personality?
  • Does it stand for something more universal than your product or service?
  • Has it any competition in the search engines?
And that’s just the beginning!

the-big-idea-300x216

We’ve been rather prolific over the last twelve years. Many propositions flopped, all made money and some were relatively successful, growing organically over time and turning over $millions.

The Internet is our life and has been for nearly fifteen years. So now we would like to think we’re in a better position than most to evaluate any BIG Idea. We’ve got a well honed feel for what the Internet demands in its services and because of our successes we’re personally experienced in what’s required to take the BIG Idea to the next level.

BUT there’s more to it than having an idea.  We have to assess the competition, route to market, cost of programming and a whole lot more.

The BIG Idea may be to take on Google, which just wouldn’t happen in a head to head race BUT, with a powerful Unique Selling Proposition (USP), the BIG Idea may just work.  Who would have thought Facebook would be the downfall of My Space at the height of its popularity?

Is Facebook ready to be knocked of its perch with the right proposition and backing?

Don’t be afraid to think REALLY BIG … We can handle it!

Our main company gauk Media runs a network of niche search engines, pronounced ‘gawk’ meaning to ‘find it cheaper’.  gauk Auctions grew to become the UK’s largest specialist auction portal.  It has undergone various upgrades and recently a decision was made to become more specialised in each marketplace, splitting the site up by leveraging a powerful, efficient, and proprietary operating platform. One highly scalable, highly efficient business model.

gauk cocktail partyThese kinds of decisions and solutions can only be made through first hand experience in running a Web Business, by meeting the trials and tribulations thrown up on a day to day basis. The problems encountered on the battle field are simply not seen by a traditional Web Agency.

In the past we have entrusted projects (some rather expensive) to outsourced developers and as predicted, we’ve created huge demand. The visitors start to come, they tell their friends, who tell their friends.  The news starts to apear on Blogs, forums and article directories   We send out our mailings and advertise … only to watch in dismay as the whole thing fell apart.

The key is to get it right FIRST time and then manage growth … and what better way than to work with a team that walk the walk?

As well as the aforementioned Web Businesses directly owned and run by us, our development company is contracted to manage a diverse portfolio:

  • 100+ websites
  • 100+ million unique visitors per month
  • 98% of visitors are from organic (non-paid) sources
  • Each site a leader in high value vertical markets

And the operating platform is unique:

  • One technology platform for 100+ sites
  • One location, one sales force, one facility, one team
  • One highly scalable, highly efficient business model

MTV, Seat, Mercedes, National Geographic, Nike, LogoThe head of development is an Internet Entrepreneur, the man at the wheel of eHealth Forum, a large scale online medical community built from scratch. The site generated over TEN Million Page Views,  SIX to SEVEN Million visitors per month. Solutions were created for managing capacity, content, and the entire user experience.

Our designers have designed and developed elegant user interfaces for prestigious clients such as: MTV, Nike, National Geographic, Seat, Mercedes and many others.

We could go on and on but really, the long and short of it is that we have the teams, the talent, the ‘out of the box’ mentality … and critically, the experience to bring your BIG Idea to life … and to ensure it grows naturally without any drama!

You may have new concept, an addition to your existing offline business or want to expand your current Web offering. Each needs to be assessed in much the same way.

First we’ll get our business analysts on it and give you an honest opinion.

  • Is it actually a BIG Idea or has it been done?
  • Is it doable, can it be efficiently programmed?
  • What’s the route to market?
  • Is it scalable?
  • Can you leverage existing assets?
  • What’s the business model?
  • Is there an exit opportunity?
  • HOW WILL IT MAKE MONEY???
  • and many other questions

We’re NOT interested in taking your money for an endless round of web development and personal gain, and we’re certainly not interested in taking the heat when the budget runs dry.

We’re entrepreneurs and driven by success!

If we think your amazing proposition is simply a non-starter we’ll tell you.  We can see where the traffic is trending and what searches your potential clients are making … if they’re not looking for your BIG Idea it may be because it’s new and they don’t know they need it yet … or they simply aren’t interested!

So take the first step …
