The past 20 years of designing and developing websites has allowed us to hone our expertise and create our unique Build The Future methodology. This process is key in our deliverance of highly optimised, high performance websites that convert users into customers.
We ensure that relationships with our clients are one of collaboration, so over the 12 steps of this masterful process you work alongside the KIJO team to shape and craft what will undoubtedly become your primary sales tool.
From the Discovery phase of defining details and delving into solutions right through to the finished website, we make sure that our process is transparent and communication driven from start to completion.
You don’t need to take our word for it: we have the credentials to back us up. International award platforms such as the CSSDA, The Drum, Web Guru Awards and more can all attest to our success- being Winners of Best Innovation and Best UI and UX Design at CSSDA is no easy feat! Don’t worry, you’re in capable hands with the KIJO team.
We use WordPress as our CMS (Content Management System). Thanks to its open-source capabilities, our options with WordPress are limitless, and continually expanding. With WordPress as our base we can strategically design websites that are adaptable, provide long-term solutions, and able to evolve alongside our clients.
In using WordPress we also give you control over your content; instead of turning to a web design agency every time you need a content update we’ll instead show you how to access and manage these important details. We’ll still be here if you ever need us of course, but we believe that you should always have the option to be in charge of what goes out into the world. How’s that for empowerment?
Throughout the design process we take it back to the basics. Our first priority is always to analyse website visitor data to discover the areas that need our attention most if we’re to unlock the ideal user journey.
WordPress has grown to become far more than just a content management platform. Thanks to its flexibility and huge international community of dedicated developers, WordPress is the power behind 38% of the world’s websites.
Each project we undertake begins the same way- with a blank screen. We make each website entirely unique by creating everything from scratch. Our experts aren’t limited by web design conventions, meaning that each website created by the KIJO team can stand out with its own fully bespoke interface.
Our experienced WordPress team can handle all integrations, whether it be with an API or a plugin. In fact, we even create our own bespoke WordPress plugins!
By working with KIJO you can guarantee optimum website performance. We make sure to create a website that gives you speed and conversion rates your competitors are sure to envy.
We focus on making your website’s response times lightning fast to give your users an experience so good that they’ll keep coming back.
Your website should be your biggest sales tool, and so a lot of work is directed by one goal: conversion rates. We work closely with all our clients to turn your website into a valuable asset that ensures the highest possible conversion rates.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the skill of using unpaid, organic methods to get your website noticed. To get your website seen by the right audience, attract traffic and grow your customer base it’s imperative to use the right techniques.
SEO will only be successful however if you get the fundamentals right first. We make sure to gain a comprehensive understanding of your ideal audience before we even begin to conduct our meticulous keyword research.
Before any work on your website begins we conduct a full SEO audit of your existing website. This thorough audit examines both technical SEO and offsite SEO. Examining your current content, website structure and content hierarchy, backlinks, keyword rankings, and more, we can assess your strengths and amend your weaknesses most effectively going forwards.
The SEO audit assists us in creating a detailed report on all of the keywords your website currently ranks for. This report looks at your current keyword usage, the monthly search volume for these keywords, and your Google position on each of those given keywords. Upon examining this data we can then perform further research into potential keyword opportunities, focusing on those that will maximise your share of industry-specific organic traffic.
No SEO analysis would be complete without checking out the competition. In our keyword research we similarly assess what keywords your competition is ranking for, the keywords that give them the most traffic, their top pages, and more. We can then use this data to help you out-rank them in searches by claiming the keywords most valuable in your industry.
Once we have audited your current website, carried out our keyword research and analysed your competitors it’s time for us to put together your full search SEO strategy. This strategy addresses current and future keywords, website structure, and landing page creation to help you achieve those much desired top-of-the-page rankings.
For every project there are some key processes that never change- why change something that works time and time again? These failsafe elements are what our team specialises in, and this expertise is what allows us to win those highly coveted digital agency awards.
In our collaborative process you’ll work with us to figure out your website’s key user journeys. Our KIJO team are experts in identifying user types. We apply this knowledge to create a tailored journey for every user possibility, allowing more scope for optimisation and significantly increased conversions.
What transforms your users’ experience from average to exceptional?
We plan and create a branded design system that covers all your website’s individual elements. In your unique design system we detail colour palettes, font choice, button styles, photography guidelines, and all other visual considerations that elevate your website into a high quality visual experience.
Our KIJO designers have created a masterful design system that will implement all the brand system elements and set the creation of your bespoke website rolling. Our specialist team blends UI and UX to ensure a premium user experience.
In the Development phase our expert WordPress developers begin the process of creating your finalised designs. We create pixel perfect websites that reflect the designs exactly as was intended, not forgetting to include all the bespoke functionality specified in the original brief. Once we’ve got to this stage you can sit back and relax- we’ll let you know once the website has been through our internal testing process and is ready to go live.
We have a reputation to uphold, and so to maintain our award-winning name we undertake a strict, extremely detailed internal testing process. Only if a website lives up to our exacting standards will we allow it to be released and provide an external testing link to the client side project stakeholders.
A KIJO website is what sets you apart from the competition, and we’re confident that it will transform into your number one sales tool. But what is it that elevates our strategy so magnificently? Well, apart from the KIJO team’s experience and creative process, we also employ the most up-to-date technology to provide you with features that will never fail to impress in the ever-evolving technological landscape.
Our aim is to guide your users through to your checkout in the most seamless way possible. We remove unnecessary distractions from the purchasing process to ensure the highest possible completed purchases. We believe that advanced functionality should never come at the expense of usability, so our checkout systems are easy to use whilst remaining easy on the eye.

Augmented Reality works to merge the gaps between the digital and physical worlds . Whether it be to allow users to try before they buy or an AR explainer video, we can use Augmented Reality in your website to offer your users an enhanced experience.
We have been working with WordPress since its inception. From our many years of experience we can confidently say that there isn’t an adaptation to the WordPress CMS that the KIJO team cannot make possible- we’re the experts at adding bespoke functionality. We can create unique features to benefit both our clients and their users.
API’s (Application Programming Interfaces) have reached the height of popularity in WordPress over the last 2-5 years, and most major brands will have an API if they wish for you to use their functionality on your website. We can create custom API’s if needed and can also integrate any existing API’s you wish to use into your website.

Using WordPress the KIJO team can build the website you need. Usually a WordPress website will fall into one of 3 categories – Brochure, eCommerce or SaaS- and we have examples of each of these in our brochure. Take a look and compare these options below.
We have the experience to tackle all website challenges, but there’s certain sectors where our expertise shines through. Our best work has been produced in the following industries…
We have worked with different healthcare organisations- including University Hospitals NHS- to create simple, effective websites for use by both patients and practitioners. Our team can successfully create systems that display information and appointment details with clarity, whilst maintaining the highest security standards.
Public sector organisations often have multiple stakeholders and complex offerings for which existing websites are poorly equipped to handle. KIJO’s team of web designers and developers strategically streamline this information into targeted, logical user journeys, thus enabling users to find what they need quickly and easily.
We’re experienced at working with high-end, luxury brands to create websites that highlight the brand’s quality and heritage. Users are awed and inspired by the luxury design and ease of use that is delivered- exactly the sentiment that such brands deserve.
We have worked with leading establishments such as Birmingham City University, University of Birmingham, and MICRA. Students, parents and teachers all need access to very specific content and information types, and we can help you achieve this whilst maintaining a visually consistent and smoothly operating website.
Our eCommerce websites are built using WooCommerce, an open source WordPress platform which offers secure payments, configurable shipping options, and full customisation options. Optimise your conversion rates with our bespoke KIJO checkout flows.
Software as a Service- generate more sign ups, achieve greater brand exposure, and deliver more results with a KIJO SaaS website.
Use a KIJO SaaS website to deliver results; generate more sign ups, achieve greater brand exposure, enhance your storytelling through superior detailing, and make your game come to life with our bespoke animations.
This is a really open ended question as the scope of a website can vary massively. After a 30 minute consultation call with one of Partnerships team we will be able to produce a proposal for your project that will include costings. As a start point though a budget under £10,000 would not be realistic for a website that is going to move your business forward.
