A digital agency based in Calderdale with national clients, our particular specialisms are caring for our clients and going the extra mile - we do loads of website related stuff too! What makes DC different is how we become an extension of your marketing team (or in some cases your marketing team!) and help to generate new business, bring new products or services to market or increase awareness or sales through online and digital media.
Whether it's a straight forward website, or something a bit more special using social media integration and email marketing, or online advertising campaigns, talk to us and we'll explain everything so that you can make informed choices in your marketing and online business efforts.
Brochure and HTML sites
This is our bread and butter work – we design and build websites in HTML 5 for companies and organisations large and small. You’ll see a range of example sites on our website (link to the left).
Content Management System Websites (CMS)
Over the past few years we’ve built websites for all manner of existing CMS packages, typically Open Source PHP, but others too including ASP.net.
Our forte is making an off the shelf system look like an entirely bespoke one. With attention to the smallest detail and designing something that looks good, rather than being easy to build. Take a look at some of our examples on our site and you’ll see what we mean.
Social Media Integration
Facebook, Twitter and other APIs (Application Programming Interface) can be integrated into websites and tied to each other to create a more interactive and engaging experience. Whether it be a straightforward Twitter Feed to your site, or Facebook events or comments – no problem. We have a wealth of experience managing Twitter competitions and customer engagement activities on behalf of our clients.
So you want to sell you products online? Easy peasy – we can either customise an off the shelf shopping cart for you (lots around, just need to pick the right one for your business) or we can build a bespoke one from scratch if you have specific requirements and more of a budget. Our assistance never stops when the site is launched, we’re in it for the long haul and want to help your site be a success – so we’re on hand to advise you on online marketing activities, advertising (pay per click / Google AdWords etc), search engine marketing and optimisation as well as email communications.
HTML Email Marketing
We have our own HTML Email send system, it’s called Squeezymail and you can see it at www.squeezymail.co.uk. This site is ideal for smaller enterprises (and even bigger ones!) that do not want to heavily invest in email communications. Squeezymail allows users to create their own templates and send out for 1p an email, or for regular senders buy in bulk for a more cost effective solution.
We have APIs for Squeezymail and so can also put automatic sign ups on your site or your Facebook page and have an email newsletter archive on your site very simply.
We also design and build bespoke email campaigns for a range of clients, these typically link to landing pages and microsites. When we design and build bespoke campaigns, it’s usually for an existing send system the client is already using (or we can help select a new one if need be). Whether it be just design, design & build, or design, build and analysis – we can help.
Flash banners are another staple – whether it be an all singing all dancing Rich Media Flash Banner that needs to do something (be interacted with) or a Flash banner that draws attention and gets the click through (with the GIF back ups of course!).
Here at Digital Consortium we won’t try to sell something that we don’t believe will help your business – we work with you as if your money was our money and we want to spend it wisely and not waste it. It’s all about getting a return on investment, so that you can reinvest with us and do more things – that’s the way we roll here at DC.
