Digital Strategy

There are many ways to reach out to your audience digitally. We work with businesses across all industry sectors to build digital strategies and that really work. Our experts know how to develop meaningful connections online, build relationships, maintain dialogue with existing customers and engage with new ones. We use digital marketing experience, in-house web design teams and web developers that speak plain English to get the job done. The digital world changes rapidly, so we make sure we don't get too comfortable. We keep our eyes open for emerging tools and trends and we embrace the best website design technologies available to create value for our clients.

Website design

Your content is the most important part of your website. We'll work with you to develop content that really works and is properly planned and prototyped. Our Surrey web designers are well versed at developing an organised and thought-through aesthetic to give your online audience the best possible experience of your brand, product or service.

Mobile sites

Digital audiences increasingly expect 'everything, everywhere, all the time'. The result is a welcome move to responsive websites, augmented reality (AR) experiences, and enterprise Apps for every business need. Our web designers and coders understand the nuances of context driven web and are experts at designing for the mobile web.

Apps

If you're looking to unlock the power of your business or idea with an enterprise App development, we have just the right mix of strategic, creative and technical know-how to deliver a product that gets results. We’ll work with you to define the exact parameters of your App design before we prototype, build, test, market and provide you with ongoing support.

eCommerce

We know how to design eCommerce websites to build trust and encourage your visitors to take the first step towards buying from you. We won't try to fudge your requirements so that we can use an off-the-shelf template: we build custom eCommerce websites tailored to your target market, that are flexible enough to grow and develop as your business does.

Testing and analysis

Launching your website or App isn't where our care and attention comes to an end. Its analysis, evaluation and improvement are essential parts of the process. With tools such as A/B testing we can evaluate with accuracy what gets the results you are looking for and what doesn't. Often subtle changes are all that are needed to improve site traffic, increase conversions or adapt to changes in the marketplace. Contact us to find out how our web design teams will use testing and analysis tools to drive improvement on your site.

Thanks to all those working tirelessly behind the scenes to make the VCR website a success! The timeframe from the concept to going live was very short and we had to work long hours and very hard to get it up and running. Your level of professionalism during this busy period remained constant as you were always willing to help and still think outside of the box rather than just getting the job done quickly. Your positive responses to my requests and general cheerful nature was very refreshing indeed."

Environmental Policy

We recognise that our day to day operations inevitably impact on the environment in a number of ways and we work to reduce any potentially harmful effects of such activities whenever we can.

We have widely adopted a 'paperless' approach to business communications. Our web based IT systems substitute for paper messages and very often travel. We teleconference and video conference at every opportunity and we view conservation of resources and the environment as a basic business necessity.

Specifically, Drum will:

  • Operate a car sharing policy for all staff.
  • Encourage a cycle to work policy for all staff.
  • Ensure that our policies are implemented by all staff and help them understand the relevant aspects of the policy through guidelines, regular communications and action plans.
  • Promote the recycling of office materials and items purchased and use recycled materials wherever possible.
  • Minimise waste in operations and product development, and conserve resources through efficient use and planning.
  • Regard environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice as the minimum standards of environmental practice.
