Hi, I'm Nicola
And I am the main pixie here at The Web Pixie HQ. The Web Pixie creates logo and web design for small business based in Shropshire.
I want to help sprinkle a little bit of pixie dust onto your business’s online presence so that you can bring a little magic, joy and whimsy to enchant your customers.
When you are first starting your business, the thought of ‘building a website’ is overwhelming and confusing. It seems to be full of technical jargon aimed at scaring off all but the foolhardy (for that read, “have a lot of time to spare while they go on that steep learning curve”).
I am passionate to show that web design doesn’t need to be that way, and you can create a website you are proud of with just a little hand-holding.
When creating a logo and web design for small business, I aim to simplify the technical jargon so that you can get an understanding of:
- what you need,
- what you have time to do for yourself,
- what your limits are and
- what you want to outsource.
Your website should not be something to be scared of, but something to embrace so you can capture your customer’s imagination, and of course, make you more money!
And I would love to be part of that journey with you.
What’s my story?
I have spent the last 30 years in software development, working for big corporate blue-chip companies and small startups, developing their customer management and help desk systems.
Working with smaller companies was always much more fun and rewarding. It felt like you were making a difference rather than just another cog in the wheel.
So instead of soulless organisations, I want to help small business owners. The people who haven’t got the big budget to spend on a flashy website or don’t have the time to waste on endless meetings, but who still desire something extraordinary and are passionate about what they are doing.
Why work with us for your logo and web design?
When I started my first business, I had one overriding criteria; it had to cost as little as possible to get up and running as I didn’t want to waste too much money on something that might not work.
As I had been working in software development all my working life, I thought how difficult it could be to build my website!
In hindsight, if time is money, I’m not convinced this decision was good value! It was a steep and bumpy learning curve.
After building my first website, somehow among friends and family, I was suddenly an expert and constantly asked to build their websites for them. So naturally, this grew my skills, and I realised I enjoyed it, from the technical challenges to the creative side to working with the business.
Working on these websites has also helped me understand what is needed for small businesses to get up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible.
I believe every business is different and has different requirements. I enjoy keeping web creation personal, so I can focus on each customer and provide what they need; no offshoring, no speaking to different people every time you call. It’s just me at the moment, so I know and understand your journey.
I have been where you are but had the luck of having some technical skills to build a website.
I recognise that a website is more than just a corner of the internet. It is YOUR corner of the internet, and it has to reflect what you do, value and aspire to.
What magic does The Web Pixie bring to the party?
I hate to see people pay over the odds for poorly implemented, generic websites, all because they didn’t understand what was possible for the same effort.
Businesses working with me and my pixies will get someone who cares about their business and brand and is passionate about making their websites reflect their brand personality.
I use simple, guided processes and templates to help the decision making more manageable and fun so that you can understand and visualise what you are getting during the whole process.
Even though The Web Pixie is a logo and web design agency based in Shropshire, we are happy to work with you wherever you are based.
Why work with The Web Pixie?
Whilst we treat every customer individually based on their needs, here are just some of the benefits every customer gets:
You don’t need to worry about knowing all the techie stuff. I’ll keep things simple and clear, this is a jargon free zone.
No Hidden Costs
Being upfront about pricing is important to me, just like it is to you. You’ll know what you need to pay from the onset. There are no hidden fees.
You Are Important
I want you to succeed. Therefore, I will always do my best to design a website you love and share all my knowledge to help you achieve your goals.
It's All Custom
Every small business is different, which means one size doesn’t fit all. Every design is custom for you based on your business goals and requirements.
I’ve been in the IT business for 30+ years, designing and developing systems for small businesses and large corporates, so I understand what you need.
I provide ongoing support to all my customers. So whether it’s two days or two years after launch, I’m available to assist and help you.
