You know you want a website but where do you go from there? Most people think just having a website is as simple as knocking out any old design that shows a few photos and has a phone number. But your website should be much more. A good website should project professionalism about you and your business. A bad DIY website will simply not encourage prospective clients to call on your services.
I can discuss your needs and point you in the right direction. It is vital that we collaborate to create something which is in line with your vision and target market.

What do you want from your website?
Websites are an incredibly versatile tool. There are very few businesses, if any, who have nothing to gain from having some form of presence online. However, having us build a website is not enough; you need to tell me what you want it to do.
For example, many people have a product to sell and want to have a place to sell their product. These e-commerce sites facilitate these transactions. Not only will we present your product in an accurate and attractive way, but we will provide a safe environment for the exchange of money allowing customers to shop in confidence.
Alternatively, you may want to increase the exposure of your business. In this regard, I can build a website which incorporates SEO (search engine optimisation). This way, I can force your business to rise up the ranks of search engines. This will introduce your product or service to an entirely new market of customers.
You may even want a booking service. If you run a restaurant, for example, it is important to have a tool which allows customers to schedule a time to visit you. This is incredibly efficient and reduces the amount of time your employees spend on the phone.
These are just three of the countless website styles which I can create to accommodate your needs. If you have something else in mind, don’t hesitate to give me a call and answer some questions.
How do you want your website to look?
It is important to keep in mind that the website is ultimately yours. I can have as much or as little control over how it looks as you like, but it is important to both of us that I deliver a final result that you love.
When you meet to discuss your brief, which could be over a tasty coffee and bun, it helps me if you have some idea of the look you want to achieve. I can offer guidance, criticism, and answer questions, but having a solid foundation before the design process begins is vital.
Before you come in to talk to me, have a look at some of your competitors. Naturally, you don’t want to copy them exactly, but you can take inspiration.
One option is to prepare a few websites for me to look at before coming in. These can be within your industry or not, either way, as a talented creative, I can take on board all of the elements which work, and advise which os those do not
Once I have an idea of what you like and want, I can then incorporate your brand into the brief. I will make sure the site projects your brand accurately and reflects the quality of service any customer will receive when dealing with your company.
How much do you want to spend on your website?
You can use two models when determining what you want us to build for you:
- Tell me what you want, and I will tell you what it costs.
- Tell me your budget, and I will work out what can be achieved on the available budget.
For example, many people have an idea of what they want their new website to do for their business and the cost of this is secondary.
Many people will approach me saying they are doing well but are struggling to increase their customer base. In other words, they want to access a new market.
To achieve this, SEO can be very effective. Clients will tell me that they have money to spend and that overall they want to gain new customers for their business. Despite the initial investment, the process will very quickly pay for itself.
As a digital marketing expert and a designer, I can work with you to come up with a tailor-fit strategy in order to increase your profits in the most cost-effective manner possible.
However, not everyone has the budget to facilitate this. Luckily, using my experience and knowledge, I can work with you to make the most of the budget you do have. It may be the case that you only have a few hundred pounds and want to know what you can do with it.
A good place to start with a limited budget is to order an SEO marketing report from. This will detail technical fixes that can be made to existing websites to comply with Google best practices for SEO in web development. In addition, the content of your website will be analysed to ensure you are implementing the correct copywriting methods.
I will work with you to make the most of your cash. I am not in the business of doing the least work possible; I rely on our reputation and word of mouth to earn a living an I am committed to delivering total customer satisfaction.
It doesn’t cost a tremendous amount of money to get an effective website, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Why choose to work with me?
I always prioritise excellent customer service and maximise what can be achieved from your specified budget.
I utilise many years of technical experience to bring you the best solution.
From web design and development, SEO and copywriting, I will happily take care of each and every element of your website.
