Web development

IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, WE CAN BUILD IT

As your website is one of the most crucial touchpoints in the user’s journey, it is imperative to clearly represent your brand’s core values. Your website is furthermore one of the most measureable marketing assets, making it a very valuable source of information.

The Reference always keeps an eye on new developments in website building practices and tools. This attitude is what makes us pioneers in web development and consolidates our expertise. We have lived through every evolution, up to the emerge of content management systems (CMS) and its inclusion in integrated platforms.
We aim for an organic approach in which our team of talented developers works closely with our designers, business strategists and online marketing consultants. This synergy provides a perfect balance between presentation and performance, thus ensuring the highest level of design accuracy and user experience.

Behind almost all of our websites is a Content Management System (CMS). A CMS helps you to facilitate the creation, publishing, distribution, organization and management of digital content. An advantage that mostly translates itself in time, as you don’t have to call us for modifications to text, images and navigation. This is perfectly in line with our motto "It's more than digital, it's your business".

When determining what CMS you should use, our team of digital experts help you find the right solution that will perfectly fit your brand’s needs.

5 easy steps to understanding context marketing

Read more

The importance of content in your marketing campaigns is a subject that’s been extensively written about, analyzed and proven to be the major differentiator when it comes to digital. There’s a reason the expression “Content is king” never gets old. But content on its own has no value. The only real measure of value when it comes to content is from the person that is consuming it – its relevance and its impact. When we think of content, we shouldn’t ask ourselves only how to do it better, but how to do it differently. How do we improve the customer experience and communicate with our audience on their preferred channels and within the right context of each interaction?
