You may have wanted to get your business online for a while. You want a website to showcase what you do, and to let customers know how they can get in touch. Actually getting round to setting up your website on the other hand is a different matter. Right now, you might just not have the time to think about it, or you might not know where to start.
That’s where I can help.
I can get your business online.
I create simple but effective websites that act like an online brochure for your business. In as little as 3 months and without breaking the bank, I could get Set up a website ticked off your to-do list.
Interested? I’d love to speak with you to find out how I can support your business.
For a truly unique website I can create custom designs that include all sorts of special features. From pricing tables and contact forms to animated buttons and integrated videos, I can really bring your site to life.
If your budget is tight I offer great value, high impact single-page designs, with your choice of sections and features summarising the key things your business offers.
If you want to stick to a lower budget option, I can customise pre-built professional looking templates with your business logo and branding. I can then help you make the site your own by adding in your chosen text and images.
After your website design is completed I don’t just leave you to it. I offer 3 months of free maintenance to make sure your website is working the way it should do; sorting out any glitches and keeping it free of spam and malicious content. I can give you a monthly report about how, when and where people visit your website. I can also make small updates or tweaks to your pages if you want to change any images or alter some text.
If you would like me to carry on looking after and updating your website after 3 months, I offer the same service for a small fee of £25/month.
As well as designing websites, I also spend quite a bit of time testing them. If you already have a website and want to know how user-friendly it is I can carry out a usability test for you. You simply let me know what you would like me to try and do on your website, and I will give you constructive feedback about how I get on.
I can also spend time exploring your website, using a computer, phone or tablet, and give you detailed feedback about any bugs which I find.
When your website is reflecting who you are as a business, you want it to work the way you expect, and you want your audience to have have a great experience. For a very reasonable fee I can help make sure your website is performing the way you want it to. Get in touch to find out more about how my website testing services can help your business.
You may not have your domain name or web hosting service sorted out yet. If you don’t feel confident in setting them up let me know. I will be happy to help you with it.
What Google thinks of your website can make a big difference as to how high up the listings your website appears. The same can be said for the other search engines. When someone searches for services like yours, you want to make an appearance! It can take time for your website to build the reputation it needs to climb up the rankings ladder. However, you can help it along by introducing Search Engine Optimisation (or SEO for short) to your site.
When you have all your website content ready, I can take a look at how ‘pleasing’ it will be to the search engines and give you feedback to help you make your content better.
What else might you need for your website? Photos? Short videos? Logos or other graphic design?
Well, I’m not proposing that I act as a ‘Jack of All Trades’. However, I do have a little network of people who I can contact on your behalf. They can offer these services to you at an affordable cost, and help you present your business in the best possible light. Please ask if you would like to find out more.
I specialise in building simple, brochure-style websites. By keeping things simple, I can keep the costs low.
I hear so many stories from small business owners, especially start-ups, who hold back from getting a website done after they are quoted sky-high prices. I want to offer something that’s fair and affordable, with a range of options to suit different budgets.
I’ve given an indication of the costs for my services below. However, I appreciate that the requirements for every business are unique. Once I have an understanding of what you want for your website I will give you a customised quote with an estimated project timeline and completion date.
Cash flow is an important consideration for small businesses. I therefore offer a Pay As You Go option for multi-page website designs. After an initial deposit is paid for the home page, you can pay for each additional page separately when you are ready for me to add it to your site.
I became a Mum recently, and as a result of needing to find work that I could fit in around caring for my daughter I decided the time was right to pursue my dream of having my own business.
For a few months I tried a variety of flexible work opportunities. As part of this I built a blog website and got into website testing. Then, the website I had built was shown to the director of a small business. He was looking for someone to create a website for his company after previous efforts hadn’t worked out. He asked if I would be interested… I was!
I really enjoyed building the website for his company. Website building wasn’t something I had ever considered before, but it was a great fit for my skills and interests. I couldn’t wait to do more, so I decided to take the plunge and start my website design business.
I come from a family who have always run their own businesses or worked for themselves. I understand what hard work this can be sometimes and how rare ‘normal working hours’ are. This is why I am keen to support start-ups, small businesses and sole traders in achieving their online marketing ambitions.
