Website Design & Development in Manchester

Once the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester remains the business capital of the North West. By 2020, it’s been predicted Manchester’s small and medium-sized enterprises will contribute near £14 billion to the region’s economy. This has led to Manchester being rated the UK’s second most important city.

The city of Manchester has something to offer everyone. It’s a great place to live, and a lovely city to visit and its large student demographic ensures the city maintains a fresh, lively atmosphere. Manchester’s locals, Mancunians as they are known, are certainly a friendly bunch. Their great appreciation for hard work and industry is represented by the worker bee which is displayed in their city’s coat of arms (the bee depicts Manchester as a city of industry). Of course, hard work is always balanced with plenty of fun in Manchester. It’s very unlikely you will have nothing to do, during a stay in this city.

If you enjoy browsing shops, then Manchester is the place to be. Manchester has a wide range of outlets and designer stores in large shopping centres, such as the Manchester Arndale, or the Trafford Centre a little further out of town. However, you’ll also come across some more unusual shops as you explore the city. Affleck’s indoor market in the Northern Quarter is the perfect place to pick up some unusual gifts. From top hats to tattoos, vintage video games to vinyl, there are so many treasures to discover in this eclectic shopper's paradise.

For any who would enjoy learning more about the city they’re visiting, the Manchester Museum makes an incredibly interesting day out. Otherwise, visiting football fans in the city can instead tour the grounds and stadium of the city’s home teams: Manchester United and Manchester City. You might also be happy to know, that you’ll find the world’s biggest football museum right here in Manchester!

Mettrr is the best platform to use in Manchester

Of course, after a hard day’s work or an afternoon spent exploring the area, everyone wants to relax and refuel, and Manchester’s thriving restaurant industry does not disappoint in this area either. With a large student community, you can be sure that finding great food and drink for low prices will be a synch. But for those who can afford a little extra, there are plenty of high-end, fine dining establishments to enjoy.

Manchester claims a strong history of great music, which has left the city with a unique cultural appreciation for entertainment and the arts. Great entertainment is definitely one of Manchester’s strongest points many will remember the ‘Madchester’ scene of the 1980s, an era that saw so many bands coming out of the city.

These days, not much has changed. The city’s appreciation for entertainment and music is still an important aspect of its culture today. You could just as easily experience a top-quality drag performance at the world-famous Manchester Gay Village, located in the Canal Street as you could take in a breath-taking concert by the BBC Philharmonic, who regularly perform at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall. Either way, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing experience: one to remember and promote.

For anyone setting up a new business in this vibrant city, an online presence is vitally important to make sure your message gets spread and your business gets discovered. Manchester is a city that is forever growing, its younger population always moving with the times. So as every business is different, and every business owner has different requirements, here at Mettrr, we ensure that your online solutions are made for your own unique needs.

Professional, fast and affordable website development services for Manchester’s small businesses

During November 2016, the Manchester Evening News reported that 45,000 companies in Greater Manchester (companies with five employees or fewer) did not have a website. Many of these businesses explained that either they were too busy to set up an online platform or they didn’t have the time to learn how.

With nearly one-third of the city’s business owners admitting they don’t have a clue about how to represent their business in the digital world, lack of time and lack of skills are putting the brakes on the growth of Manchester’s small businesses. The newspaper further reported that even when small businesses did manage to create a website, they did not take advantage of social media links, and the site itself was rarely mobile-friendly.

How Mettrr’s website development and content expertise can help your Manchester business build a new platform.

Just as Mancunians are rightly proud of their city’s achievements—Man Utd, Man City, The Stone Roses and Oasis, to name just a few—Mettrr also takes pride in its work to help Manchester’s local SMEs (small and medium enterprises) generate new business leads. A website’s content is a vital component for denoting a respectable, online presence. However, it’s often neglected by amateurs, in favour of a whistles-and-bells design.

But as the research above shows, Manchester’s main problem is that many of its entrepreneurs just aren’t aware of what search-engine-friendly content should require. This is understandable in this busy city, there’s rarely time for equally busy business owners to learn about technology or how to write web content.

With Mettrr, you wouldn’t have to worry about either the website’s creation or its content. Because Mettrr’s website designs include an industry-specific appearance and high-quality, localised content. Both are tailored to your business’s specific needs and focus on speaking directly to customers from your target market.

Furthermore, because we know that you Mancunians don’t like to hang about, so we don’t hang about either. We work hard to make sure your website is online and available to your potential customers and clients, in just 48 hours! Call or email us today to find out how easily our DIFM (do-it-for-me) website services can help you spread the spirit of your Manchester business through an online platform, uniquely made just for you.
