We have lots of experience in all of the options and are ready to help you make the best choices for your organisation.
Search Engine Optimization or “SEO”, is the skill of improving a websites capacity to appear at the top of the Google and other search engines for specific search terms. In general, the higher and more frequently a web page result shows up in the list, the more exposure, website traffic, sales and enquiries your business will receive.
With over 80% of people using the internet each day to look for products and services, it’s important that your business has a strong online presence for search terms used by your target market.
At Gravitate we only write best practise SEO code, our CMS allows you to control important elements of the SEO equation and our SEO specialists work with you to achieve targeted Search Engine objectives.

At Gravitate we strive to make sure you are equipped to navigate through the opportunities the web presents to your business and get a real understanding of what you are investing your time and money into.
We have vast experience working with new start-ups and entrepreneurs and know what it takes to create a successful web presence that sees tangible results.
We are a design driven studio with an in-depth understanding and vast experience in creating aesthetically strong, intuitive and highly useable interfaces for websites and applications.
Keeping the design process completely separate from the software engineering we can ensure custom design, no templates, for every project.
Our years of experience have made us UI/UX experts. We understand that because of the way users interact with a site web design is more akin to product than graphic design. First and foremost it must function smoothly so that the attention of the visitor is never broken and they are guided through the content and lead to engage with it.
As in the world of product design, a beautifully functional website will inherently look great too,check out our portfolio of work to see just what we can do.
Content is the most exciting part of your website. It is the reason people come. It tells them who you are, why they are here and then drives them to act.
Great design and functionality will help users find the content they are after, to understand and engage with that content, but it is the content that is the foundation of your site.
Your website should not be a scaffold that we squeeze your content into. The content should drive the way the site is built.
Working out the best way to present your content (text, images, video, info-graphics and more) and how to prepare it can be a daunting task. At Gravitate we can help you prepare a Content Strategy and site map.
We also partner with the best in the business when it comes to great Copy Writers, Photographers and Video Production and can recommend a perfect fit at every price point.
