    Is your website mobile friendly?


    If not, you should be aware that Google has recently released a mobile algorithm update that will reward mobile responsive websites with higher search results, while penalising mobile unfriendly websites by burying or removing those sites entirely from the mobile search index.


    All the sites we build are mobile friendly as standard.

The Smart Hand Web Design - designers of affordable Joomla based websites

At the Smart Hand Web Design, our goal is simple . . . to produce professional, clean and easy to navigate web sites that can be easily managed by the client at an affordable price.

In this day and age and the current economic climate, unless you are a well established business that has been trading for 10 years or more, not having a website places your business at an immediate disadvantage.

A well presented website is your 'world wide' opportunity to provide a shop window to your services or products and it's first impressions that count.

Having a clearly defined, uncluttered website with easy navigation is key to getting your target audience to browse through your site and keep them interested.

Based in Hinckley, Leicestershire right in the heart of the Midlands, we specialise in Joomla! content management web sites that enable you the site owner to make changes to your own website without the need for specialist skills. If you can type a document using a word processor program like Microsoft Word or Microsoft Works, you can edit your own web site pages.

Whether you require a new website, a makeover of an existing site or a conversion from a static website to a dynamic content management system website, The Smart Hand Web Design has a solution to suit all budgets . Contact us today for an informal, no obligation chat about how thesmarthand.co.uk can help you improve your web presence.

What our clients have to say . . .

After Marc initially set up my fantastic cake website over 18 months ago, I was in desperate need of Marc's help and expertise once again. My website had recently been hacked and my home page completely gone. I rang Marc late in the evening distressed and in tears, Marc contacted me straightaway and advised that he would get on to the issue immeditely. To my surprise Marc worked late into the night and by 10:30am the next morning my website was once again fully operational. Marc also installed added security software onto my Website to avoid this distressing situation happening again in the future I cannot thank him enough!! :)
Thanks again - Rachel Waddell, Elegant Cakes by Rachel

On a couple of occasions I needed Marc's help URGENTLY, he responded and rectified within the hour!! I would HIGHLY recommend " The Smarthand" for ANY of your website needs, and I have no doubts at all, you will also be delighted with his service!! Thankyou Marc, Great Work!!
Thankyou - Great Work, Chris Seal - Absolutely Haunted
Marc has been a pleasure to work with. He took us through each stage of development and spent a great deal of time ensuring that our business was well represented on the internet. He developed the colour scheme, appearance and layout as well as teaching us how to make adjustments and alterations. His response rate for alterations is terrific. I have recommended his work to several businesses (except our competitors!)
A pleasure to work with! - Chris Daly, Highcross Hovercraft

thesmarhand.co.uk web services have made a terrific job of not only building our website to our utter satisfaction originally, but also updating and maintaining it as required over the last year or so. The continuing prompt service and attention we've received, never mind value for money means I am delighted to recommend Marc's work to anyone. Again, many thanks for a great job and keep up the good work!
Excellent value for money - Thundersport Syd, Director of Thundersport GB
I am so glad I picked Marc at thesmarthand to build my new website. From the initial meeting, Marc picked up exactly what I wanted from my website. With the addition of his expert help and knowledge he then went onto build the perfect platform for my business. I initially thought the process was going to be hard work but I ended up really enjoying seeing the build taking shape. I would not hesitate recommending Marc at thesmarthand to anyone thinking of going down this route.
Perfect platform for my business - Darren Bullock, Rovince UK - Suppliers of specialist Tick Resistant Clothing
Marc was asked to design a website for our proposed Forum. We are delighted and Hinckley Borough Council Staff said "I’ve also taken the opportunity to look at your website this afternoon and it is very good" We have been delighted by the professionalism and the skill to convey our message so clearly and impressively. Thank You Marc
A Massive thank you - Alan Smart, West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Forum
TheSmartHand did a brilliant job building a new website for Labour in Hinckley and Bosworth. Marc was a model professional in the way he designed and developed our new site. We wanted to work with a local developer who would be thorough, imaginative and forward-thinking. Marc was a pleasure to work with - confident in his skills and the latest developments, as well as approachable and personable. A testament to the skills in the Hinckley area, I would recommend Marc's work to anybody.
A Model Professional - Chris Kealey MBE, Labour in Hinckley and Bosworth
