You only have eight seconds, use them wisely
The average time to capture attention on your website is 8 seconds. That’s the amount of time it takes someone to make a snap judgement on whether or not you are a good fit for what they’re looking for, and subsequently if they want to do business with you going forward.
This means that the content on your website needs to be fully optimised to capture the user’s attention and get them interested. Particularly the content ‘above the fold’ that they see first. We call this the ‘hook’.

Your Nettl website, web shop or application will be deployed into our cloud platform powered by AWS. This uses the same proven infrastructure that runs famous names like Netflix, Pinterest, Expedia and Amazon.
How many website visitors are on mobile?
So now we can get into some more of the detail and the nitty gritty. The biggest thing we need to talk about is the amount of traffic your website will receive on mobile devices.
It’s true what they say, more than half of search is now from mobiles. So over half of the visitors to your site will be looking at it on a portrait screen rather than landscape, so it’s vital that your site is fully optimised to look just as impressive on an iPhone (or android..) as it does on a desktop.
That’s why all of our websites are mobile and tablet friendly thanks to our liquid layout design tools that adapt and reform to suit any size of device and reach your target audience and whichever device they are using, so you can be fully confident your site is covering all bases.
So which website is right for me?
Well, that sort of depends on what you need your site to do for you. The first question we always ask is what’s the point?
Ie. What’s the point of the site and what’s its purpose?
Generally, the answer falls into one of three, so we’ve split them down to help you work out which is yours:
Our most popular site – a mobile, tablet-friendly and desktop-optimised site all in one. Great if you want an online brochure, portfolio or team profile to go alongside any social media platforms that you have. Since your :one site is modular, we can upgrade to :connect or :commerce later.

Getting online in Newark in four easy steps
It really couldn’t be easier to get your business in Grantham booming on the internet, because we make it easy.
The turnaround time from consultation to launch can vary depending on the current studio workload and how long it takes to agree on. the copy for the site, but we always aim to have your new site sparkling online within 8-10 weeks from deployment.
Step 1: Consultation
We will meet with you on-site or at our welcoming local office to talk through your requirements and what you want to gain from your website. From there, we will be able to put together a full and detailed proposal matching your budgets. We will listen to your every need and ensure we find a solution to make it happen
Step 2: Structure
Once we agree the project plan and proposal, we will put together a detailed website structure document for your approval. This will outline the contents of each page on the site and how the project will come together, enabling us to move forward with the fun bit, the design.
Step 3: Visual
When we’ve agreed the structure, we will move on to the design. We’ll firstly produce a home page visual for your approval, on a live development link so you can get the full feel. of how the site will appear in your browser. and on mobile.
Step 4: Design
Then after agreeing the look and feel of the home page with you, we will move forwards to produce the rest of the site design, with regular contact throughout the process to ensure you’re still happy with how the project is progressing.
Step 5: Launch
Following approval from yourselves on the entire site’s design and contents and our own internal trials and tests on all three devices, we will launch your site to our internal AWS network servers and boom, you’re online.
All our websites come super-charged with
An essential with website deployment. Companies and organizations need to add SSL certificates to their websites to secure online transactions and keep customer information private and secure.
In short: SSL keeps internet connections secure and prevents criminals from reading or modifying information transferred between two systems. When you see a padlock icon next to the URL in the address bar, that means SSL protects the website you are visiting.
At the end of each website project we will sit down with you for an hour and talk you through how to run and maintain your site. Starting with how to change basic text and images, we will ensure you know how to perform the fundamentals in keeping your site up to date and secure.
Should you wish to leave us to the updates we are also happy to work like that and complete the work on an ad-hoc basis. Or you can sign up to be a Nettl:VIP and have all of that taken care of in one easy monthly fee.
All of our websites are hosted securely on the AWS servers, the same infrastructure that runs famous sites such as Netflix, Amazon and Expedia.
Our sites are backed up five times a day, so should you make an error in a change or the site becomes vulnerable in any way, we can roll back to a previous version and carry on where we left off.
All of our sites are built with a ‘liquid-layout’ that will reform and optimise automatically on mobile devices. As we mentioned, more than half of search is now performed on mobile devices, so we take how your site looks on a portrait screen incredibly seriously. Your visitor will be sure to have a pleasant user experience no matter what device they are using.
Nice of you to say so!
