Our valuable experience with application development from simple start-up businesses through to complex business-critical multi-user applications gives us the toolkit of resource to deliver your project each and every time.
We know the challenges which face every one of the clients we have dealt with and consider your needs when it comes to creating a solution that fits your requirements. If you need a mobile application or an online shop we know how to spec up the project and, more importantly, work with you and your team to ensure what you want is what you need.
We have a small central team but employ a wider set of freelance specialist programmers should your project be large or include complex elements which require knowledgeable web developers. But we don't stop there! If you are looking for marketing skills or promotion of you website in major search engines - consider us. We have dozens of clients who have called on our services and are surprised at the positive outcomes they have experienced. However if you are looking a quick fix to get your website positioned on the first page of Google within a week, please don't contact us - we're not fly by night /promise you the earth SEO wannabes. We take time and work closely with our clients to ensure that we are working coherently and in the same direction to get you to a stable and consistent position. Be prepared to pay for this service, not as expensive as others in our business but we do get results and have a clean conscience knowing that we are doing everything ethically and correctly!
Check out a example of our work for Cameron Stephen (Estate Agents in Edinburgh)
We are located in Midlothian, we don't have expensive city centre costs to cover and we pass these onto you when it comes to project development and delivery.
Our team comprises technical business consultants, developers, designers, programmers and content managers so we bring the right people for the job.
Business people come to us with great ideas, often we contribute to the idea and develop the final product with much more value than the basic idea started with. This comes from listening and always consideing not just a solution, but the greater value we can deliver to you and your idea
If you have an idea, don't worry about the "this might sound like a stupid question/idea" - there are no such things (with some exceptions naturally!). We treat all new ideas for applications with the same consideration and respect and we will be honest, but if your idea is a great one, we will do all we can to help you achieve it
The Community Voices Programme asked 1st Class Media to develop a website that would be easy to use, eye catching and would hold a diverse range of information. I am very happy with the final website; it has met all the criteria we originally set out and compared to other quotes we had received, represents excellent value for money. The staff have been friendly and approachable, and Mark in particular has been great in taking time out to meet on a face to face basis and discuss otherwise confusing issues. I am happy to recommend 1st Class Media's services to other projects and organisations looking to develop a website.
