Functionality.

The functionality below is available to everyone. Completely flexible, you can rearrange them in any order and use each one as many times as you like.

It is by no means everything but gives you a good indication of what’s on offer.

2. Text

Text is boring right?  No! It allows you to generate organic traffic for your site through Google and is still the #1 ranking factor for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). You need to ensure that when it’s used, it provides value to your visitors / potential clients. The key thing to remember is ‘All killer (content), no filler’.

It’s important to remember that your text should be keyword rich. So if for instance you have a website selling websites to small businesses, then that should get a mention.  Keep the language natural as if you were talking to someone.  Overuse of keywords will be penalised if the context doesn’t make sense.

Break your text up into one, two, three (as seen here) or four columns.  Adding a heading is optional and you can also add an optional button afterwards.  You can use the button as a call to action after a compelling piece of copy.  A good example of this would be sending someone to a contact page to fill out a form.

3. Full screen images

These are a great way of showing of a killer image. Text is optional.

4.  Countdown timer

7. Image carousel

A carousel of images.  You can have optional text below or on the image itself as well as an optional link for each image.

8. Teasers

These essentially provide access into other important areas of your website and would be used on your home page or other landing pages such as a  portfolio or services page.  They can be configured in a few different ways.

PROJECT TEASER

This could be an image and a brief description of a project.  Clicking on the link would take you through to a detail page with a gallery of images and a detailed description of the project.

CASE STUDY TEASER

This could be a teaser for a case study.  Clicking through would give more information on that case study, a testimonial from the client and then a contact form.  A smart way to generate leads.

10. FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Not only does an FAQ section demonstrate your knowledge in your chosen field but they also save you a lot of time and therefore money in emails / phone calls.

It’s easier for you if a customer finds an answer to a question they have on your site rather then call you up or email you.

And chances are the same questions keep cropping up over and over again.

12. Gallery

One of my client’s most popular requests is a gallery to show off their images.

Below is a 3 column, edge-to-edge gallery with gaps. The images fade from black and white to colour.  Lightbox functionality is included so please click on an image below to see how this works.

To see a few different configurations of the gallery, please click here.

With my galleries you can configure:

  • Number of images per row.
  • Gaps or no gaps between images.
  • Edge-to-edge galleries to maximise screen space.
  • Image Animations.
  • Masonry galleries which not only look great but work perfectly when your image sizes are not consistent.
  • Lightbox functionality that lets you click on an image to see a larger version of it.

13. Grid

Grids are a great way to break up content with some stunning images.

They can also contain text and links which allows for multiple calls to action.

14. Split content

This allows you to use any combinations of the following items:

Counter / Form / Image / Quote / Text / Video

You can also configure how much space should be allocated to the left and right of the split.

Below is an example of a counter and some text.

40% of UK small businesses have no website at all

That’s one of the reasons I launched Flexible Web because websites generate money for small businesses…FACT!

I also want to help those small businesses who are fed up with their current site and are in need of a refresh.

15. Staff profiles

These could be configured in numerous ways using the functionality above but I have also supplied a dedicated staff profile section.

Staff profiles build trust in your company.  People feel they know you before they actually know you.
