Better Technology Behind The Scenes
A Globally Supported CMS
As web developers, our first goal is always to make sure our websites are functional and easy-to-use. That’s why we opt for WordPress. This platform allows us to create back-end functionality that’s seamless, intuitive, and easy for you (and your customers) to use.
Best-practice Web Development
Our web development process begins with a thorough understanding of your company, brand and business objectives. We will meet with you in order to gain a deep understanding of your industry, target audiences, and goals which will enable us to clearly define user flows and website architecture.
Internet security is a huge concern, especially in 2021. With both your personal and customer information at stake, you don’t want to take any chances. At Social Tap, we ensure that your website is protected by multiple layers of security and proactively defend your website from new & existing threats.
Intelligently Optimised SEO
First and foremost, our designs are built for search engine optimisation (SEO). We create unique designs that are easily scannable by search engines. In addition to a basic layout, we ensure that all of our coding is compliant with popular search engines like Google.
3rd Party Integrations As Needed
No matter what you want to do with your website, Social Tap allows you to integrate many of today’s leading technologies. We can provide you with an enterprise level platform that meets your needs now, and will continue to expand and adapt as your needs grow.
Managed Updates & Backups
A website is never done, it’s always changing. This is why we don’t take a set-it-and-forget-it approach to web development. Instead, we build sites on WordPress and manage them with ongoing updates that are performed in real time. Backups are taken daily to further add to your peace of mind.
Partners and technologies we work with
