The first steps

Whether you’re starting a new online enterprise, launching an app, or need a website to promote a new business, you’ll be looking for some honest, straight-forward and advice.

Having worked with dozens of start-up businesses we are perfectly positioned to understand the challenges and opportunities which lay ahead. Choose Melon and you’ll benefit from years of experience in web design, marketing, branding and app development.

After initial consultation we’ll create a clear path to success via wireframe prototyping, branding and design recommendations, all of which are intended to ensure you can contribute to our collaborative process and provide your input.

Creating a brand

You may have a logo, an idea in mind or be looking for inspiration. In any case we provide effective logos and branding initiatives as required.

Your brand should be a reflection of your ethos, what makes you special and unique and should be aligned with your target demographic and user base. We’ll help you realise a unique, creative and engaging look and feel which can be easily rolled out throughout your business and delivery longevity and ROI.

Phased development

Often when creating online enterprises and app initiatives it is essential to plan a phased development schedule. This enables budget to be retained for essential promotional work and advertising. Afterall, there’s little point in having an amazing website, but no users.

Once you see initial market penetration and traction, further development, features and revenue streams can be introduced over time.

Promoting your business

It’s essential to factor in appropriate promotion or advertising for your start-up. Online businesses will typically require social media promotion, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) or Pay per Click (PPC) campaigns to help build a user base and facilitate word of mouth growth. We can help you determine the best ways to promote your business online and get off to the best possible start.

Ongoing support

Depending on the nature of your business you’ll need our support to some extent. From regular to support to occasional help, we’re committed to delivering outstanding customer service and honest, friendly advice.
