Web Design & Management

Your website is your virtual shop window

A great website portrays professionalism and reassures the customer of your expertise in your chosen field and a professionally designed website doesn’t have to cost the earth. Having worked in a design agency I realised that agency offerings were not always client friendly or transparent in their services or costings.
I have over 18 years design experience – specialising in web planning, design & web management for the last 8 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. 90% of my sites are built using WordPress and is my preferred build platform.I offer two types of responsive website build, depending on your budget – either working within a purchased/existing theme template 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.

Website 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.

In-House Digital Project Manager

Are you an agency or a B2B or B2C company that has a digital project coming up but need in-house support running the project and knowing that it’ll be delivered on-time and in budget?I have comprehensive experience running digital projects, whether email campaigns or website builds for both small local companies and large national and international companies. I’m comfortable liaising with your internal team, programmers, clients and third-party suppliers. So whether it’s just holiday cover or something more permanent, contact me to find out more.

I am very delighted with the website that Paul designed for me. It was a pleasure working with him, and my requests were dealt with extremely quickly and professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone looking for a first class website.

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 mainly 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.
