Leithen Business Services

Posted on March 23, 2015

Here is another website refresh to share with you. We have modernised the look and layout for Leithen Business Services, making sure that their new WordPress website was responsive and user friendly. We also did some work to improve search engine optimisation on the website (not that it’s needed as Leithen Business Services are pretty busy from word-of-mouth already!).  

March Street Holiday Flat

Posted on March 6, 2015

We’ve not exactly been practising what we preach over the past few weeks and haven’t been updating this News page regularly…. it’s good that we’re too busy I suppose! We do have a new WordPress website to share this week, March Street Holiday Flat in Peebles. You might recognise a bit of a theme here – the owners, Pauline and Danny, already run Pirn Road Holiday Apartment in Innerleithen, so wanted the websites to be similar in style and layout.Read More

What’s on your to-do list?

Posted on September 30, 2014

We’ve been a bit busy for the past few months so adding our news to the Web Leithen website has remained at the bottom of our to-do list for quite some time… Do you have something on your list that just hangs around and keeps getting put off until the next week? Perhaps “sort out website” is the thing that you never quite get around to doing? If so then why not get in touch to see how Web LeithenRead More

Pirn Road Holiday Apartment, Innerleithen

Posted on May 26, 2014

Our latest website design for the very lovely Pirn Road Holiday Apartment here in Innerleithen. It’s been an extremely quick turn around over the last few days – the builders finished, the photos were taken, the first guests arrived, the photos were loaded to the website and it was all ready for some publicity during the Tweedlove biking festival! The apartment looks fantastic and we wish Pauline and Danny every success with their latest venture.

What is a WordPress website?

Posted on April 4, 2014

WordPress is the most popular of a number of content management systems (CMS). Using a CMS enables clients to maintain websites themselves with very little technical support. This gives control of the website to the client so saving them from being charged for updates to pages and posts. A WordPress website begins with a layout (theme) or framework, which can then be customised with colours, fonts, a logo and your content – website pages, news posts, heading and menus. CustomisingRead More
