Your website is more than a digital asset, it’s the face of your company and often the first place that your brand can connect with your audience or potential customers to build trust and set the right tone for visitors to take action leading to more sales.
As a freelance web designer, I understand the pressures of running a small business and being self employed and I’m passionate about making the process of web design simple, affordable and effective for you and your business.
Don’t worry, it can be confusing at first, especially if you haven’t got any experience of making a website for your business. It can be challenging to know what’s needed to achieve your dream website. You shouldn’t have to become a web developer to understand what makes an excellent website for your business. I can guide you through the process in the most simple and effective way for you and your needs.
What I offer:
Wordpress web design
You're in good company - an award-winning platform
A platform that makes it fantastically simple for website owners to take control of their content and update their websites. WordPress creates a simpler, easier and cheaper way – which means as a consumer you get a lightning fast website at a price that won’t break the bank. Not only this, but building your website with WordPress means it’s completely scalable and can grow as your business grows. And when the time comes when you’ve outgrown your website, WordPress makes it easy to update and scale up without having to completely redo all your hard work.
CMS Web Design
Content Management System built in
Our websites allow you to easily update and change your content, add photos or amend your pricing structure with just the click of a button. This means you save time and money by not having to pay to make minor updates.
It is an amazing tool for developers but more importantly for you, the end user.
Key to any small business is that your website is easily editable to accommodate changes in pricing, terms or even services.
Responsive Web Design
To ensure your website automatically adjusts & displays beautifully on all devices
With more and more online browsing happening on a mobile device or tablet, having a responsive website is essential. Responsive web design is a technique used to build websites with a mobile-friendly layout so that it is suitable across all devices & screens. The idea here is to maximise the user experience when you’re exploring a website.
A responsive website has a fluid and flexible layout which adjusts according to screen size.
With the Google algorithm update, a responsive web design increases visibility on search engines—because it is mobile-friendly.
You own everything
No monthly fee's, no tie-ins & no extra charges
You buy the hosting & you buy the domain name. (I can guide you through that process and suggest the best options for your needs.)
Don’t worry about rushing out to buy hosting or a domain yourself. I can help with this and point you in the right direction. It's actually more important than you might think to pick the right providers and names for this.
Why do you own it? Because some companies will do this for you and then add their fee, owning your website and it’s content and staying in control of anything you want to do with it in the future. This often leads to larger bills than are really necessary.
As a smaller business or start up company you may not have the largest budget but see the value in presenting yourself professionally and want a website that represents you well. That's where I fit in! Keeping it affordable, scalable so that it can grow as your business does and that you are in control of.
