Helping Yorkshire Businesses Succeed on the Web

The history of Go Web began around the year 2009 when I took an interest in web development whilst working for BT.

After a lot of dabbling and doing freebies to build a portfolio, I got an opportunity to join the Web Team at a company called Telescope Studios in Leeds. Whilst working for Telescope, I was surrounded by some amazing and talented individuals who taught me a lot (thank you Sean and Baz). During my years there, I did website work for some great companies including Bristan, Spear & Jackson, Portakabin and Purina.

Whilst at Telescope, I was working as a freelance Web Designer/Developer as demand for those services grew. My freelance work soon overtook what I was doing for Telescope, so as the business evolved I incorporated Go Web Design & Development as a company and committed to it full-time. At that point, I had so much work that I employed other developers on a freelance basis. That is still the model I use now when required, however, I like to look after my clients personally and don’t ever wish to become too big. I love interacting with my clients and have helped many Yorkshire-based businesses get off the ground.

Since then, Go Web has grown to the point where we have now been involved in the design, development or management of over 300 websites (I think), mostly for companies based in Yorkshire – something I’m very proud of…

What We Do

Web Skills

We can develop websites using most languages and platforms. Our specialities, however, are WordPress and Magento. We have chosen to concentrate on these two platforms in particular because they are widely used, well supported and the most popular worldwide. As well as these two platforms, we have also worked in many others, including Drupal, Concrete5, Shopify, Opencart and many types of custom CMS.

Our web team is skilled in both front-end and back-end technologies, including HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, SQL and more. We always stay up to date with what’s happening in the web world, and ensure our skills and capabilities enable us to deliver exactly what the modern customer demands.

We are particularly keen on SEO. Over the last few years, this has become a huge part of what we do, and we have our ear to the ground constantly, listening to what Google and the other major search engines are looking for. We believe that a Web Developer should know the fundamentals of SEO, so we invest a lot of time practising the latest techniques to ensure our clients websites rank really well in search.

Design Skills

Design was our first love. We started out in Web & Graphic Design before moving on to development. We are well-versed in graphic design tools such as Adobe Creative Cloud, which features Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and the new XD, amongst other popular design apps. By using the latest tools, we can provide businesses with cutting edge creations, in modern formats, whether they are for the web or print.

Ethos & Values

We are VERY proud of our Yorkshire roots. We started small, without any real funding, and have grown quickly, but naturally, simply by providing a great service to our customers. We’ve had to do this the hard way, starting from nothing, so we understand how tough it is for new businesses to get going.

That is why we will always be down-to-earth, to the point and REAL. Like true Yorkshire people, we say what we think, and take a proactive approach with our clients. We want our work to make you money, so if we don’t agree with you, we will tell you, as long as it is going to benefit you and your business.
