Content Management System
We'd like to introduce you to Georgina from The Condiment Company. The Condiment Co a family business selling award-winning mayonnaise, sauces, dips and salad dressings since 1986. Georgina contacted us here at Media Matters Web Design because she was really fed up with her website. The main specification for the Condiment Co's new website, aside from it looking amazing, was for Georgina and her team to be able to make changes quickly and easily. “Our previous website was difficult and time consuming to update and as a result, our site remained pretty untouched for some time.” Georgina Phillips, The Condiment Co. We worked with Georgina to produce a website that looks great and showcases her famous products in a brand new ecommerce store. Even more importantly, Georgina can now make changes and add products quickly with our easy to use Content Management System (CMS). Read more about the Condiment Co project One of the main benefits of having a team of in-house web designers and developers is we work closely together to ensure your website will look great and be functional and easy to use. The publishing platform we use is called Drupal. Drupal’s flexibility handles countless content types including video, text, images, blog, podcasts, files, and polls with robust user management, menu handling, real-time statistics and optional revision control. We make it easy for you to connect your website to other sites and services across the web. Drupal’s focus on social publishing will help your users to stay in touch without having to leave your site. Integrating with social networking sites such as Face Book and Twitter helps expand your network and make your product or message more engaging to a wider audience, which also assists in better search engine rankings. Upon completion of your website, our in-house team will offer you a complete training package where you will learn how to update and change the content of your website. Ongoing support is also available for a reasonable amount of time thereafter. This is a standard feature offered to all of our customers. We also offer an after care package and on-going support for our clients who wish to increase their search engine rankings.

Last year, Communications Regulator Ofcom reported that UK adults now spend more time using technology devices than they did sleeping. UK adults spend an average 8 hours and 41 minutes a day on media devices compared with the average night’s sleep of 8 hours and 21 minutes. So when we say there has never been a better time to have an online presence we really mean it. In addition, online spending has increased significantly over the past few years. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported that 76% of British adults accessed the internet everyday – rising by 21 million people since 2006. Internet shopping has grown in popularity with 74% of adults buying goods and services online last year. The most significant increase in on-line purchasing however, is from the over 65’s seeing 40% buying online in 2014 compared to only 16% in 2008.
