I Can Build You A Great Website
How I Work
I take the time to find out what you want to achieve from your website and the type of audience you are trying to reach. I will then provide you with design ideas and once you're happy begin creating your new site.
The time it takes to complete your website depends on the size and work involved including any revisions, but it can take between 2 – 4 weeks to design, build and test a basic site. During this time I will provide you with regular updates for your approval, so that you can make revisions at any stage should you wish to.
I will build your new site using the WordPress platform. I use WordPress because I consider it the best website content management system (CMS) in use today, it is also the most popular, supporting more than 70 million websites. Many of the world’s top brands use WordPress to power their websites because it is so easy to use and combines some of the most powerful tools and applications needed to have a professional website at an affordable price.

When you are completely happy with your new site, I will launch it online and provide you with the hosting account details and the information needed so that you can take control of your own site or if you prefer you can leave it to me.
You will own your new site without restrictions. This means that should you wish to in the future you can edit it, develop it further or move it to a new host. Many other website providers limit what you can do to your own site and may also restrict you from moving it from their hosting platform. You should consider this before choosing a website provider because if at a later date you wish to add a feature to your site that your provider does not support and you are restricted from moving the site to a new host you may have to start all over again and build a new site somewhere else.
I will ensure your new site displays properly on all device sizes and will also be optimised for search engines so it can be found more easily on Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.
I will also provide you with a free period of after sales maintenance for your new site and I'm also available for future updates and any other editing you may need in the future.
A website must engage effectively with visitors and be designed so that necessary information is easily found. Research shows that visitors will move away within seconds if they are confused with navigation or cannot easily find what they are looking for.
I will build you a website that immediately engages with the visitor and makes navigation easier.
If you have an older website it may already look dated, it might not be displaying properly on smaller devices or be optimised for todays search engines. With up to 70% of all online searches now being made on smaller devices, now is the time to make sure your website is fully responsive and can also be found easily in search results.
My websites are designed from the outset to be fully responsive on all devices and optimised for search engines, especially Google.
If you've built your own website, you might be a little disappointed with the end result. It’s not as easy as it first seems and if you’re busy managing a business you probably don’t have the necessary time to learn to use a page builder program and get all the design essentials right. A poorly designed website will not benefit your business or your image.
If you would like to start again or have your existing site finished properly then I can help.
There are many elements to a good website and hundreds of different features available, so the total cost will depend on what is included and how much time needs to be spent building it.
However, I do offer a feature packed website design package from just £495, which includes hosting and domain name. See below for all included features.
This is a great choice if you are looking for a simple but good quality website that provides all the features that you need now, but also provides you with the flexibility to add to it in the future.
I do not tie you into long contracts or restrictive hosting agreements with hidden costs. I will explain clearly what is included and provide you with options to add more features should you want to now or in the future.
