Your current website? It's losing your customers.

Your current website is just sitting there, gathering dust. You have no time or inclination to work on it. It's outdated, neglected, and you can't remember the last time you received a contact form submission through your website.

But your potential customers are still using your website. And when they do, they get a terrible experience and an even worse first impression of your business. The result? Your website scares away potential customers.

But what if your website could contribute to the growth of your business? What if your website provided you with more leads, conversions, and sales?

A website made by Heave?

  • More satisfied visitors
  • More leads, more conversions, more revenue
  • Better rankings in Google
  • Easy to customise
  • Proudly shows who you are as a business

We translate the design into code all while making sure your website passes all the industry standards with flying colors. Fully optimized for maximum findability, usability, and technical best practices? You got it. Google will love your website, and so will your target audience.

Very nice collaboration. Maarten listened enormously to our wishes. If you want a professional and user friendly website, Maarten is the right person. Sounds very cliché, but it's really true!

What was great about working with Maarten is his structured way of working. He draws up a clear roadmap for you and provides you with regular updates. In addition, his eye for aesthetics and detail is also admirable. In the beginning we were sceptical about the cost of building a website, but what you get in return is more than worth it. I'd highly recommend working with him.

Still got questions?

Can I customise my website easily?

You can log into your website via a separate link and easily edit all content (text, videos, images, etc.) yourself. And contrary to what you are used to, our system is really user-friendly and simple. Would you rather have us do it for you? Then feel free to send us an e-mail and we will take care of it immediately.

How long does a project take?

On average, a complete project takes 8 weeks. Of course, this can vary greatly from project to project. For example, depending on how quickly you provide feedback, or how technical your website is. You will receive a detailed project plan at the start of your project.

How do I know you really deliver quality?

There are countless cowboys in the world of web design. That is why we measure all our websites against objective standards. That way you can be sure that you have bought a qualitative website:

  • We guarantee 90+/100 scores on Google Pagespeed Insights (both mobile and desktop). So you know that your website is fast, accessible for people with disabilities, secure and developed according to the latest standards.
  • We guarantee 90+/100 scores on a full Website Audit via SE Ranking. So you know that your website is fully optimised technically and SEO-wise according to the latest standards.
  • Even after delivery of your website we follow up with you on your goals and adjust where necessary. This way, we ensure that we can demonstrate with objective figures that your website is profitable and contributes to the growth of your business.

Be sure to ask other parties how they can show you the quality of their websites. You will be amazed how few parties do this.

Do you want a new website that gets you results?

Together, we'll look at the best solution for your project.
