Happy April fool’s Day! Who will you be fooling today?
Last year went to release “Google Tulip”, a platform for communicating with your tulip flowers! But we think McDonalds got the best bite, with their “McPickle Burger”. We wonder what pranks will come about this year! pic.twitter.com/r6m133GT0s
Google Search Trends can tell us a lot about the world’s interests in current times. The only worrying thing is… since lockdown begun, searches for “How To Cut Your Own Hair” have risen about 400%. And we have the answer to that question…. DON’T! buff.ly/39mnGXcpic.twitter.com/g9pro5FLDA

Web Design vs Web Development – What’s the Difference?
Your website has to meet your business needs and that of your customers. It’s not just about building a great looking website, it’s about understanding your market and ensuring your website reaches, responds and delivers that for you. And across any device it’s viewed on!
Then there’s the matter of being found online by your prospective customers once your site is live, making sure visitor behaviour is being tracked and recorded so you can interrogate and continually improve the effectiveness of the site. And a lot more besides!
But have no fear! We can help you at any stage of the process and can get involved at whatever point that suits you – Design, Develop, Launch, Maintain, Promote or Scale!
Think of it this way, a web designer is responsible for making a website visually appealing, that the information flow is right and the site looks great.
A web developer, on the other hand, is responsible for making the web designers visuals work, to build the functionality that will make the site operate properly and as expected. A developer builds a website from the bottom up and is more focused on the way a website works than how it looks. Our highly skilled web development team in Luton are able to build rigid, fully functional websites that can exceed your expectations.
Whilst these roles are entirely different, without them both, there is no usable website and many people these days have cross-over skills that fulfil both design and development requirements.
For web development in Hertfordshire, surrounding areas and beyond, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Right First Time, On Budget and as Expected!
Did you know more than 25% of the website work we do is rescuing our clients’ projects from website designers who’ve bitten off more than they can chew? Or developer-designed sites that look like a dogs dinner?
You’ve likely heard the phrase “form follows function” – that the way something looks should be determined by its purpose? When it comes to websites, we agree this is pretty sound advice, but we’re not bound by it. We deal with every project individually and work with you to achieve a happy compromise.
At Silvertoad, good website design doesn’t come at the cost of poor usability.
We pride ourselves on our fully-integrated team of highly skilled creative web designers and talented web developers. We’ve invested in our people, in our team and the services we offer for good reason because it’s essential!
Don’t pay twice for your new website – contact us and let’s get it right for you first time!

The main purpose and function of a Content Management System (CMS) is to provide multiple users with different permission levels to manage a website or a section of the content, without the need to have HTML knowledge.
A good CMS system will allow you to create, edit, publish and archive web pages along with a raft of other functions with a click of a few buttons.
At Silvertoad we’re obsessed by developing CMS systems that our clients can use easily, quickly and effectively to achieve their business goals.
We work with open source software and create systems using industry-standard code and programming languages. A Silvertoad developed site is one that can be worked on by any good developer so that you are not locked in with us or anyone else!
A common misconception about CMS is that it eliminates the need to hire a website developer or programmer to make changes to a website. That is not true in many cases. Our aim is to deliver sites that you can manage, maintain and update with little need for our developers ongoing, unless you want to customise or need help with maintenance.
Our comprehensive e-commerce solutions are designed to meet every digital retail requirement.
We have over a decade of experience creating flexible, powerful, e-commerce and e-business software systems that fulfil our client’s exacting requirements.
We use industry-standard, open source platforms including Magento, OpenCart, WooCommerce and a raft of other solutions and match the most appropriate solution to your business requirements.
Our website design and development team are highly experienced, meaning you get exactly what you need and want, not what you have to have because of the limited skills and experience of the agency!
Its a common theme and we often come across bespoke websites developed at a cost of £1,000’s which do not fulfil the client’s needs and quickly become out of date.
Our intuitive e-commerce solutions will optimise your e-business and help to increase revenue, traffic, site engagement, conversion, and loyalty. Whether you are launching a new online business from scratch or seeking to increase conversion and sales on your existing e-commerce website, we can help.
We’re able to develop an almost unlimited range of tailored solutions to meet your specific e-business needs.

Mobiles and tablets have eclipsed the desktop for online browsing and this trend is gaining pace. It was previously just a nice option having a mobile responsive website, but now it’s crucial and the search engines have included this into their ranking algorithms.
Smartphones and tablets have entirely changed the way we consume and engage online content and as users, we expect to access the same full content available in desktop versions.
Our innovative website designs and solutions are tailored to deliver you a results driven web presence that will allow you to stay ahead of the competition!
Our comprehensive solutions provide you with a complete, powerful website presence that will perform seamlessly across mobile devices, desktops and browsers. We are passionate about creating website designs that help users find what they’re looking for quickly and easily.
Whatever your needs, Silvertoad can help!
