No – not an April fool! For the entire month of April* our Content Management System websites are available for £499, reduced from the normal price of £550.
Content Management Systems such as WordPress or Joomla! are a great way of taking control of your website. CMS systems allow you to manually update the content of your website as often as you wish, at no cost to your organisation. Your website will never get tired as you have full control to update images and content to reflect the latest news from your business, reflect up to date pricing or promote new products.
Content Management Systems cost a little more than standard static sites at the design stage but offer far greater potential in the long run. If you run a business that operates within a fast changing environment, or where you want your website to show up to date products and services, and their prices, then a CMS website is definately the recommended option.
Our professional web design team will create a dynamic and modern design concept for your website. You are able to have each page on your website laid out on the same template (as with our own website) or you can have a design for the front page and a separate template for internal pages, able to reflect different branding images for different sections of your business or organisation. We can then add pages and content according to your website design specifications.
The design process of your website does not end when the website goes live however. As well as having the ability to update content and images, you can also add an unlimited number of pages to the website – all at no cost to your business – using the pre-designed templates that will be built into your website programming.
Our service does not end with the design process either. As well as providing you with user friendly instructions on how to use the software, we also provide you with full technical support for the lifetime of your website – all at no charge! Our commitment to excellent customer service in our web design services means that you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have the full technical backup of our experience and expertise.
Full details of this offer can be seen on our Special Offer page.
If you are interested in a Content Management System for your company’s website, or if you would simply like further information on the advantages that A CMS system could offer you, then please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help!
* = To qualify for this special offer we must have recieved your order and your deposit by close of business on 30th April 2011.

At Castle Design Solutions we do not just carry out web design projects. We also offer a professional and competitive website maintenance service. The most recent customer to take advantage of this service were the real estate services company everyavenue.co.uk.
For this website maintenance project we had a variety of tasks that we were asked to complete. As well as needing the website graphics upgraded, the company were also having serious issues with the database running the search mechanism on their property database. The system had developed a number of bugs and contained a variety of coding errors. Our website programming experts were able to locate, resolve and recode all of the affected parts of the database so that it now functions perfectly.
We were also asked to locate and repair bugs in the software that displayed Google Maps for the properties listed on their website. As with all of the other isues, this function is now working perfectly.
The everyavenue website can be seen at:

We have created a new e-commerce website for Northern Ireland company, Pushchairs Perfect. Based in Newtonabbey, County Antrim, Pushchairs Perfect needed a user friendly, e-commerce website to retail their second hand and refurbished pushchairs, prams, car seats and accessories direct to the public. Peter Barclay, owner of Pushchairs Perfect, said that he chose Castle Design Solutions to design their ecommerce website because he was impressed with the way that we were able to understand what he was asking for and to communicate in plain English exactly what we proposed to do for his company.
Upon completion of the project, Peter was extremely impressed with the design and functionality of the site. He was particularly pleased with the way that we were able to convert his initial ideas into exactly the sort of website design that he had been looking for.

We offer extremely competitive rates on ecommerce website design, and our web design experts would be delighted to create your ecommerce website for your company.
