Our Web Development Services


The front end segment of web development involves utilising different coding frameworks to focus on the user interface and user experience elements of a website. Our web development agency in Manchester takes the initial vision that we created collaboratively and then brings it to life with practical components.


Backend development is all about working on the server-side and everything that you don’t see on the front end. From ensuring the website delivers properly to site architecture, the storing and processing of data and programming languages, a great looking website is of no use if the website isn’t highly functional, a balance which our web development agency always achieves.


For websites that will have animated components, we utilise GSAP to create engaging animations that help to display information in an interesting appealing way. Adding motion to a website as part of the web development process is important for us as an agency, as we know how much of a difference it can make when it comes to your ability to compete as a business.


WordPress is a fantastic content management system for lead generation websites and it’s one of the CMSs that we may recommend as a web development agency. It can easily be tailored to meet the needs of your business and brand. Our web development team in Manchester are highly competent when it comes to WordPress web development.


WooCommerce is very well suited to ecommerce businesses as it has great flexibility, it can be customised, is a secure CMS and it also has great analytics software to utilise so you can get the most out of your website moving forwards.


Another CMS that is great for ecommerce, and perhaps the most popular one, is Shopify. From easy application integration to excellent customer support and being very responsive when it comes to mobile design, choosing Shopify as the content management system for ecommerce web design provides great building blocks and longevity for your website.


One of our favourite CMSs as a web development agency is Craft, with fantastic features from both a development perspective and also user-friendliness in terms of ongoing work for you as a business. There is a huge amount of community support available, it’s secure and it’s known for being able to create very fast websites which is fantastic from both an SEO and user experience perspective. We have a fantastic team of Craft CMS developers.


Choosing the right hosting for your website is key to ensuring your website is secure, you have adequate technical support, you have consistent and reliable website performance and everything loads quickly for your users. Part of the process when you choose BGN as your web development agency in Manchester is ensuring the right hosting solution is chosen for your website.

Our Web Development Process As An Agency

As with any of our processes, we always start off with thinking before doing.


Every web development project we work on is different and requires a range of web developer services from us as an agency, but each project starts the same way: with a workshop. This marks the beginning of our ideas stage, where we dig deep into your values and discuss how they could be translated into a website.

Strategy & Planning

Next, we begin the strategy and planning section of the web development process, looking at what will be involved in terms of the sitemap, meeting industry requirements, what will need to be hard coded for your website and considering the formatting of each page.

Web Development

Once we have established a clear direction for your website, our team in Manchester will begin the web development process. We will consult you throughout the process and provide you with various versions of the test website to ensure our work aligns with the direction you want to take with your brand. This involves building templates, coding functionalities into your website and overall meeting the needs of your website.

Web Design

The web design element of the process will then start, ensuring that your brand is at the heart of the design to create a hub that is the perfect introduction for new users and a recognisable and highly functional space for existing customers. We always focus on ensuring design components never impact web development, for example very large motion designs that could slow the website down.


Lastly, we conduct thorough testing phases and request final approval, before focusing on the launch and managing the migration process to ensure everything runs smoothly. When you choose our web development agency in Manchester, we support you through every phase of the process.
