DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Your website is the face of your business. When people hear about you, the first thing they’ll do is hit google. What happens next?
Can they find you?
When they land on that first page, what does it say about your business? If it loads slow, doesn’t work on mobile or just looks really ugly, what does that say about what you’re like to work with?
I build websites that look modern and professional, and are easy to navigate. They work just as well on mobiles as they do on desktop (a must these days for good SEO rankings).
So let’s make you a site that shows off your best assets.
Modern, clean, clear Websites
Clean and easy to navigate websites sell more products to more clients. People want to be able to find the information they need.
Every business is different, and has different needs. I’ll design a unique website that will show all your business has to offer.
All my pages are responsive, meaning they will view well on a mobile, tablet, laptop or large screen monitor. Your page will look professional, keeping up with technology.
Each page has easy access for Google and all my sites are set up with Google Analytics.
I use all best practices and host my sites on a premium host with daily backups.
Once your site is up and running, I’m still here and ready to help. You can choose one of my maintenance plans or you can choose to manage your site yourself and just call me in when you need some help.
I provide full training after your site is built so you can make content and image changes by yourself. You’ll also get access to video tutorials which you can later refer to in case that is necessary.
DAILY UPDATES & BACKUPS
I update my maintenance sites every day. Even when I’m sick or on holidays. So your site will stay up to date and secure.
Even when built using the best practices it’s important to keep an eye on any suspicious activity on your site. I’ll monitor any activity and will restore your site to the most recent backup if anything goes wrong.
If you forget how to do something or just get stuck, I’m just an email away. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours and will help you fix the issue or provide a video tutorial so you know how to do it yourself.
Depending on the maintenance plan you choose you can have an hour of content changes. You can also purchase more at a discount.
Fill out the form on the bottom of this page briefly describing what you are looking for.
What if I still don't have a design?
Don’t worry. Many of our clients prefer we come up with the design. We just need a list of the pages and sub-pages (including # of products if eCommerce), design features, and functions (e.g. custom contact form, eCommerce, blog, etc). Then include 3 of your favorite websites and what design elements you like about them. That is usually enough to help us get started.
A brief conversation via phone, Skype or email is all it typically takes to determine if we’re a good fit for each other.
I will review your information and you will get a quote for the estimated number of hours required to complete this project within 2 business days.
Do you include mock ups for me to review?
Usually we agree on a direction and we design it along the way based on our initial discussion. If you require a mock up to approve in advance, we charge £250 for a homepage mock-up, then, £100 for the first inner page, and £50 per page after that. Each hour of revision is £30 per hour. We will include these additional charges in the estimate if requested.
Once you have approved of my estimate and after I receive final images, content and a deposit, I create a schedule. Projects typically start about 5 business days later and the default time frame is 4-6 weeks.
What if I need the site completed sooner?
With an additional fee, I can put a rush on a project but it depends on how soon you need it and how big the project is. Each rush scenario is different so I can discuss this should the need arise.
A deposit of 50% of the estimate is required for me to start the project. Upon completion of the project, you will be invoiced for the remaining unpaid hours.
We build your WordPress site on our development server.
What you need to provide?
You will need to provide all the written content for the site, as well as images, such as logos and photos. If you need help with writing content, design or photography, let me know and I’ll recommend someone who I trust.
