True style offers a wide range of services for websites. Whether you need a entirely new website developed for your business or you need minor updates to an exsisting site, it can be done! Below you will find detail for all the services and processes included in websites, from Development to SEO.
80% of True Styles work is developing websites. A service that has continued to grow over the last year more and more, which has helped to produce a fantastic looking Portfolio of work.
As explained briefly in the Themes tab, True Style uses themes in the process of development. It helps make the finish times shorter & costs lower, whilst still providing a professional, modern looking website. What more could you want?
Once a theme has been chosen for your website that you like the design and look of to best represent your business, True Style begins the build of your website. Your hosting account and domain will be purchased if you haven’t already got either. A CMS platform will be installed along with the theme of choice and the rest of the development will follow.
Having a personal email address that is ‘@yourdomain.com’ always adds the finishing touches to looking professional. There is nothing worse than giving somebody your details and when you give them your email, it’s a hotmail account. It doesn’t look professional at all. Gmail is a bit more acceptable.
Regardless, if you have your own domain already and have done for years, but still no personal email then you could have had one all this time. True Style can set up your personal email for you and help you get it up and running on email software like Microsoft Outlook & Apple Mail. You can even have it running on your iPhone and have it set up to a Gmail account so you can access it online anywhere in the world.
If you don’t have your own domain yet, not to fear we can buy you one. And once purchased we can set up the email for you just as we would under anyo ther domain. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See what I did there?
True Style can produce high quality, professional graphics for your website that will represent your company image. How your website looks is all down to the graphic design of it, without the graphics it is just pages of text. And in such a competitive website era we are in, it’s important to make sure that your website looks professional and modern. It could be the difference between you gaining that extra work or losing it, if somebody is not impressed on how you are displaying yourself online, it can be just as damaging as giving a BAD first impression when meeting somebody face to face.
Web Design has come into it’s own over the last decade allowing people to be much more creative than they could 10 years ago thanks to programming languages that are forever improving for usability and functionality reasons.
CMS, Content Management System. Now days it is very rare to see a website without a CMS. This in laymen terms is a back end to your website, where you can manage your site content in a user friendly enviroment rather than having to update it manually via code.
The great advantages to having a CMS is that you as the client can take control of what you want to update (to a certain extent) without having to keep paying your developer to update things. Nearly all websites produced by True Style all use WordPress as a platform for building. Over 72.4 million WordPress websites exist online today & over 16% of these are in the top 1 million websites world wide. The statistics speak for themselves.

For example you can have a fully functioning E-Commerce website running through WordPress. That’s just how powerful it really is.
SEO, Search Engine Optimisation. This is the process of changing the ranking of your website on search engines such as Google, Bing etc so that you appear higher in search results. Often misunderstood as a simple task that you can just pay for and go to the top. People are paid thousands a month to do SEO work for companies, which shows just how valuable this work can be.
