Advantages: Some great sites
Disadvantages: Some annoying clients
I make websites for a living and so rather than write the top 10 websites that I use, I'm gonna do a bit of shameless self-promotion and tell you guys about the top 10 websites that I've made. Oh and I'm always available for freelance work should any of you lovely dooyooers want a site making... :)
10. Admiral Construction
One of our most recent sites and actually the website for my dad's company. Admiral are a construction and engineering contractor based in South Yorkshire. Their site is a simple brochure site that highlight their past construction jobs and impressive client list
Barterbank is an internal site that we've produced at work aiming to get people through the credit crunch through bartering. The site never really took-off, but that's not to say that the code behind it wasn't a feat of engineering - multiple currencies, multiple languages, transaction fees, subscription fees and a feedback system are all in there.
8. The Duff Brewery
Ah my first ever website, and the only one of this list that I actually designed (I'm more of a programmer than a designer). It's a Simpsons website that includes a dictionary, pictures, games, trivia and more. I don't work on it any more, but it's up there for people to view if they want to. It's the site that first got me into web development.
Senta is the Sheffield Enterprise Agency, a local government-run place that halps small businesses get off the ground. Their site includes an entrepreneurs' test a massively complex online business plan section. We're currently working on a new design for the site that fits in with their new branding.
6. Hi Plas
A basic e-commerce website for one of our favoured clients. Hi Plas sell decorative wall panels online and do pretty well out of it. Their site is nicely designed and easy-to-use with payments taken online by PayPal.
5. Bearing King
Bearing King is a Sheffield-based company that sells bearings and all related items online. The site features a full order-tracking facility, multi-currency options and payments can be taken by PayPal or SagePay. Despite its rather dubious design (the client was quite blinkered in what we wanted), the site does quite well for itself.
4. Gift Exposure
Gift Exposure sells promotional items and gifts to companies all over the UK. Users can browse the online catalogue and upload their own company logo to get a quote. Our special relationship with the client has led to the creation of 2 other micro sites.
Exotic-pets.co.uk started out as a 1-person household business, thanks to the website it's now turning over around £10,000 and is top on Google for just about everything relating to spiders, snakes, insects and creepy crawlies. It includes a full online e-commerce system with order tracking as well as a points incentive system which sees users gain points which can be used for money off subsequent orders.
DigitalFC is a personal project which allows football clubs to create their own professional website for a small monthly/annual fee. The websites are created automatically as soon as a new team signs up. Features include: player profiles, fixtures and results, match reports, league tables, photo galleries, video uploads, detailed statistics, news and events and much more. Teams get a 1-month free trial, and prices start from £5/month or £49/year.
And finally, my baby, footballgroundmap.com. Already added to dooyoo and reviewed by regularly. Users can also write reviews and upload photos of the grounds they've visited. The site originally started out as a Facebook application (http://apps.facebook.com/footballgrounds) in November 2007 and has gone from strength to strength and now has over 93,000 users. Registration is free. If you're a football fan, give it a try.
