Website Designer St Ives
Since starting RAM Marketing in 1996, I have been designed in excess of 200 websites for businesses of all shapes and sizes across a broad range of industries.
Whether you require a cheap ‘brochure-ware’ website to get your business started, or something more substantial to expand into new marketplaces, or a multi-faceted e-commerce shopping cart that allows you to sell your products to a global marketplace, or something in between, I can help. For the budget conscious, don’t despair – there are lots of solutions available to get your business online. Importantly, your new mobile friendly website design will look great on all devices.
I can upgrade your existing website to a more contemporary design, so it’s mobile-friendly and optimised for a top Google ranking. Depending upon your budget and the format of your current website, I will advise you whether it will be more cost effective to upgrade your current website or, in the long term, whether it will be more financially viable to develop a brand new website. If this is the case I can usually import the content from your existing website thereby saving time (and money) on development fees.
WordPress powers 30% of the world’s websites and can be used to create simple websites and blogs to complex portals and enterprise websites. An easy-to-use content management system (CMS) makes it easy for business owners to update and maintain their website in-house. WordPress can be expanded to incorporate shopping cart functionality, secure payment and donation facilities, customer liaison portals, calculators, membership logins, property and real estate portfolios, hotel vacancy and booking systems, event calendars, appointment and reservation systems and so much more…
I can custom-design a WordPress website for your business that is in keeping with your brand or implement an off-the-shelf template of your choosing and make any necessary coding and design tweaks. I can implement plug-ins and applications that will revolutionise how you do business. The potential is endless!
In short, I want your business to succeed
Most importantly, I don’t just design your website and send you on your way. I want your business to succeed as much as you do! I offer the guidance and support required to ensure your website is optimised correctly for a top Google ranking and provide you with the training and skills needed to ensure your website continues to dominate the search engines. I can even maintain your website, social media and online marketing on your behalf. This service guarantees your business keeps abreast of Google’s strict algorithm requirements and is being seen by potential customers every single day.
We have had very positive responses from people who have visited the website. Also our number of general enquires has risen dramatically too. Thank you for doing your job so well! – Vesna Romic, Stylishly Sweet.
If your website isn’t ranking top of Google, my search engine optimisation (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) services are the perfect solution.

Learn how to confidently use social media and get it working for your business.
For the untrained, social media can be extremely time consuming and yield little results. Sometimes it works, but more often than not, it doesn’t. I estimate that approximately 80% of businesses aren’t using social media properly. Before launching your business on social media, it is important to first device a social media marketing strategy. If you don’t have a purpose or know what results you want to achieve. If not, your social media efforts will be disjointed and unlikely gain traction. This is why social media doesn’t work for many business owners. They fail to plan. If this is happening to you, or perhaps you’re not even sure where to start, my social media training courses will give you the understanding and confidence to use social media successfully.
