Web Design & Management
Having worked in a design agency I realised that agency website offerings were not always client friendly or transparent in their services or costings.
I design & build websites that don’t cost the earth and are client friendly. I have over 20 years design experience – specialising in web planning, design & web management for the last 10 years which puts me in a fantastic position to bring my traditional design experience and organisational skills into the digital market.
Web Design & Build
Whether you already have a website or are looking for a new website I’ve the experience to be able to advise you the best design route to help you improve traffic, sales and exposure of your website. All of my sites are built using WordPress – my preferred build platform.
I offer two types of responsive website build, depending on your budget – either working within a purchased/existing theme framework or creating a completely bespoke website theme for you. Neither sacrifices design creativity and both offer you the freedom to update the site yourself post-launch or use my Website Management service to do so on your behalf.

Content Management System (CMS)
On-page SEO included
Website Content Management
We all know time is money and it’s sometimes hard for you to find the time to keep your website updated and the worst thing for a customer is to see a website that’s not been updated in months!
This is why I offer a post-launch website management service which supports your business to keep content current, fresh and relevant to your customers and more importantly ranked in Google. You supply the content, or commission me to do it for you, and I’ll post the news stories, update pages, add new content or refine your on-page SEO and metadata via your content management system (CMS) all for a great price.
On-page Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Getting your website optimised doesn’t have to be difficult. If you already have a website I can review and advise text and image related changes to your pages to make them more visible and relevant to search engine queries. Ask about my website review reporting.
As part of all web builds I ensure that your website’s text and image content has been optimised for it’s targeted keyword(s) and, if I am managing your website for you on a regular basis, I’ll ensure that all your pages are regularly reviewed to take advantage of any PPC or social media campaigns you might be running.
Paid Advertising – Pay-Per-Click (PPC)
Having your website appear on page one of Google can be difficult in organic search results, especially for new companies, so why not run a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaign to help promote your website over your competitors.
I can offer short or long term PPC campaigns with clear, easy to understand, monthly reporting.

Still need convincing?
Unlike many design agency offerings I believe the client should ‘own’ their domain, website and hosting so I work with the client to register all their services under their own name ensuring that no matter what happens the client has full control, now and in the future. I don’t use bespoke content management systems (CMS) that tie you in or charge you a monthly fee for licensing – I use WordPress, an industry leader in open-source CMS.
Why do I use this? Well Worpress is easy to use, extremely well-supported with regular updates and more importantly it’s completely portable – so should you wish to change your web designer, host or programmer at any time in the future, any .php programmer can take it on board – I firmly believe it’s your website, your CMS.
