Easy to maintain

You’ll be able to make changes and updates to your website whenever you need to with full instructions on how to maintain and manage your website.

Frequently asked questions

As you can see from our packages we start from as little as £150, but it will greatly depend what you need your website to do for you.

Absolutely, and we welcome you to get involved! You’ll be able to update the text, images and add new pages or posts at any time once we have handed it over. If you’d prefer not to make updates, you can subscribe to one of our website maintenance packages and we will make your updates for you.

To get started we will send you a Design Brief document. This is a series of questions designed to get you to think about what you hope to achieve from the website. Once we have a good idea about your business and your goals, and therefore what package will work best for you, we will work together to design the website structure and decide on the look and feel of the website. From there we will need you to provide us with the the text and images you want us to use on each of the agreed pages. We will only start work on the final design after we have received your content as this may influence how we layout the pages.

If you want to purchase your domain name and hosting separately that is absolutely fine. We will build your website using your hosting. If you don’t want to get involved in the technical side then we can purchase your domain name on your behalf and design and build your small business website on our hosting package. This will include setting up some email addresses for you using your domain name. In fact, this is included in the price of your web design package. However, after the first year you will have domain and hosting renewal costs to pay. These are paid annually and are detailed in our hosting packages.

Yes, writing text (known as copy) or finding images for your website is hard. If you’re struggling or not sure where to start get in touch and we can chat about my other services.

That’s fine. If you need online booking forms, events calendars or member logins, or anything else we can add those for you. Just ask.

Yes! I have a couple of website maintenance packages available which you can take a look at to see if they work for you.

Yes we do. We can help design a logo for your business if you don’t have one yet.

A stress free website design for small businesses is our main goal, so our process for working with you has 4 simple steps.

Get in touch

If you would like to discuss a website for your small business, the first step is to get in touch. We’ll have a quick chat by email, phone or zoom to see if we are a good fit. The consultation is free and you’re under no obligation. I will then send out a Design Brief for you to complete so we can confirm what your goals are, what you hope to achieve and any deadlines you may have.

Let’s get you signed up

On receipt of the completed Design Brief from you, and if you are ready to go ahead, we’ll send a proposal to outline all the details. You will sign the agreement and pay the invoice for the deposit.

Time to get to work

Now the fun part begins. After you send me your copy and images, I’ll get to work on designing your website. If you need help with content, get in touch. We will be in touch at agreed intervals with discuss progress, show what we have done and allow you to make any revisions.

Go live day

We’ll set a date for launch and I’ll prepare everything ready to go live. Before go live we will ask you to confirm your acceptance with a sign off and you are then good to go and share your new website with the world.
