It’s a simple truth that if your company doesn’t have a website, you will miss out on business. What’s worse, those potential customers will go straight into your competitor’s hands. Equally, if your business has a poorly designed website, 39% of users will instantly disengage with it.
At I-COM, we build websites that are functional, easy to use and effective. Our team of web developers are at the top of their industry, and are experts in building websites that have a strong presence, gain awareness and, most importantly, convert.
If you’d like to speak us about your specific needs and what our web development team could do for you, you can get in touch by calling 0161 402 3170 or heading over to our online contact form and we’ll get back to you.
What is web development?
To put it simply, web development is the process of building a website, and can
be split into two categories; front end and back end.
Front end web development deals with creating the visual website that we interact with, using HTML and CSS. Back end development involves all the in-depth stuff you don't see.
All of our websites feature:
- An easy to use content management system
- A site structure that is tailor-made for search
- A responsive layout that adapts to a range of devices, including mobile, tablet and desktop
Why is it so important?
A website is the online window to your company or service and is an integral starting point for any business. A well-developed website will provide you and your business with the following benefits:
- More customers
- Increased visibility
- Better accessibility to your business
- Improved relationship with customers
- The ability to share your brand's personality and ideas
How we work
Throughout the build process, you’ll be assigned a dedicated project manager who’ll be available to answer your questions, take comments and feedback, and ensure that your new website is delivered on time and on budget.
Our development team will work closely with you to establish the objectives for your business’ new website and will then produce a site that not only fulfills these objectives but is also easy to use and works perfectly across a range of devices.
Who do we do it for?
Our web developers are highly experienced in building a wide range of websites, including:
- Magento e-commerce websites
- Online brochures

I’ve been working with I-COM for over two years now. Having inherited a site that was far from the finished product, I-COM has made great strides in improving our online presence both from a development and marketing perspective. I see the I-COM team as an extension of our own team and thoroughly enjoy our close work relationship.
I-COM achieved a fully optimised rebranded website for Accessoryo, transforming the design for modern technologies without diminishing our original appeal, in a highly professional and organised manner. Through concrete research, I-COM fulfilled a customer research campaign that enabled shoppers to provide feedback, and implemented this information to revamp the website, resulting in a cleaner, sleeker and easy to navigate site. Safe to say we are very happy!
As a small team, we require agencies to be more than just a ‘third party’, we need to extend our in-house team with experts. I-COM have certainly become the extension of our team we require, and are dedicated to making the project a success. I-COM is big enough to house real talent, which gets results and yet small enough to offer a personalised hands on approach, it’s the perfect balance for our business.
What has stood out about I-COM is their ability to work with us and dedicate a great deal of time, and attention to detail- to achieve the best possible return. As a client it is easy to forget the intricate in-depth knowledge that we have of our products we take for granted that can be the mechanics of a successful campaign and I really feel I-COM have spent the time getting to grips with the Christy towel and bed linen collection to ensure they have the knowledge to deliver a successful campaign.
I-COM did an amazing job of managing the project (and me), and have been a joy to work with from the initial sales pitch through to the implementation and review stages. I'd strongly recommend them to any business.
We are delighted with our decision to use I-COM for our website design. I-COM successfully converted our initial concepts into a finished product that we and our customers love! The level of support we've received has been truly fantastic, and the team have been on hand from day one to ensure everything ran seamlessly. We are looking forward to continuing to work with I-COM and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
The website is now out performing all previous versions in my time at the firm (10 and a half years) in terms of lead generation. A very big thank you from myself and everyone here at JMW for all the hard work and effort the I-COM team have put in.
