Design is not just what it looks and feels like. Design is how it works.

Performance consultancy

A website is nothing without great user experience: without that, your site won't achieve the things you want it to.

Our web consultants will review your current website's performance and help you put the end user at the heart of its design. We start by getting to grips with your objectives, learning what it is your website should do in an ideal world. We then set about benchmarking the actual performance of your site, looking at:

  • overall usability: accessibility, ease of navigation, use of visual cues;
  • traffic statistics;
  • user satisfaction;
  • front-end code (XHTML, CSS, JavaScript);
  • back-end infrastructure (server setup, SQL queries, caching).

What can you expect to get?

At the end of our audit, you will get a report outlining the current performance levels of your site, with recommendations for improvement and associated cost estimates. We can also advise you on how to set up split testing so that you can compare the before and after performance levels of the site before deciding which recommendations to implement.

The developments that Herd implemented have already led to us having new blogs started in French, German and Russian. The homepage redesign is great and we can already see the impact it's having on the bounce rate of people hitting the site.
