Every business is different, therefore every website we build is customised to reflect your brand, personality and requirements. Depending on your goals and budget, we can build you a simple one-page website through to a fully customised e-commerce site.
We develop everything in-house following Google’s SEO best practices and ensuring your website is responsive, secure and easy to use. We build websites where content can be updated by you, and often integrate third party apps to help tie products and data together.
Bespoke Website Development
Silverstripe is the platform we choose to develop our websites with. This software gives us exceptional flexibility to integrate APIs to talk to other software. The admin dashboard caters for moderated content, you can have a team member draft the changes and request approval before publishing.
Rollback history to revert changes. Silverstripe is extremely customisable to suit the most demanding traffic requirements. So secure the Government uses it for their deployment. These are a few of the fundamental reasons we do not build in Wordpress.

Lite Site - Subscription Based
Also built on Silverstripe, Smokeylemon presents a template based website for the smaller business not looking to invest in a bespoke website option. We've developed some special features so that you can still update the website yourself, or take advantage of 30 mins free from our team every month as part of your subscription.
Choose a template, then a base from the basic or e-commerce options available and we can set you up within a week (*terms apply). Grow your business from a solid silverstripe foundation and you will not have to rebuild the site from scratch again.
Shopify is a popular e-commerce platform and an alternative to our lite-site option. Smokeylemon is a Shopify Partner and whether you have built the site yourself and need some assistance or want us to create you an e-commerce website from scratch, we can help.
Our website development team will guide you through the options to determine the best platform not only to suit your needs today, but your future plans.
We have launched a few apps one of which trends highly every year at its peak, most notably, the WOMAD app which has thousands of users over the three day event on both iOS & Android devices.
The WOMAD team has the built-in functionality to be able to update the app content from the WOMAD website directly, removing any double handling and minimising errors.
Another app we developed was intended to assist with secondary school sports events, providing notifications and results, whilst also keeping parents notified and assisting with the Ministry of Education reporting around participation in sports in Taranaki.
We integrate the app code around our bespoke Silverstripe website development.

Being a full-service agency our team is adept at purchasing and managing domains on your behalf. Annual renewals, SSL Certificates and other DNS updates keeps your business connected with minimal disruption.
We host our websites on a dedicated server here in New Zealand. We can host a variety of website platforms and use extra security and speed by sending all our own builds through the Content Delivery Network (CDN). You can be sure that the website is backed up daily and our technical team are on hand when needed.

This means that data management has a fewer errors', systems are automated to reduce manual time and cost, and the opportunity to provide a better user experience in real-time to your customers.
