Web Sites

You are the client and you will get the website you want!  I have a lot of experience at design and hope that by working together we are both happy with the end result. Obviously some aspects of design are time consuming and therefore cost a little more. Also be aware that ‘on a budget’ you cannot achieve the look and functionality of a site that has taken many many hours and cost thousands to build. I predominately build using WordPress and appropriate themes.

BUILD TYPE

Sites can be built using HTML5 or WordPress depending on your needs. WordPress sites will normally involve the purchase of a template which can be anything from Free! To a few hundred pounds.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

When I build a site for you I automatically provide the usual SEO options a site map, meta description and tags, appropriate H tags (H1 for example). I will verify your site with Google and Bing so that their respective ‘bots’ will trawl you site and that the main keywords feature on page. I can discuss with you the practicality of SEO for your site, inevitably it comes down to a cost decision.

SITES OPTIMISED FOR MOBILES

The ideal is to build a separate mobile site. However some sites can be ‘made’ to work in mobile browsers. Sometimes this works fine, but sometimes your site may look odd.

E COMMERCE

E-commerce sites by their nature are complicated and time consuming to build, especially if you have lots of products. Therefore an e-commerce site will cost many times the price of a simple web site. In addition the upkeep of the site will be equally time consuming.

HOSTING

I can host your website as part of the web build service

HOSTING

If this is your 1st website I can host your site for you, at very competitive rates. Do not believe the various ads claiming your web site is Free or a low price. You soon discover that what should be basic inclusions are pay for add on’s.

I use one the Uk’s leading providers and have done so for over 15 years now. Their support service is excellent and based here in the UK.

Social Media

An official Google statement now claims that Social media is the most important way to promote your business and that SEO is not enough. However, the social media world is a confusing one. Which is correct for your business?  Your choice should not automatically be Facebook.

I can help you decide what to do, and advice how to do it.

Photography

A photograph is a very subjective thing and we all differ in what we like and how we react to images. However it is important within your business if you use images in any way. The can make very powerful statements.

There are four aspects to photographs setting the shot, taking the shot and post production in something like Adobes Photoshop finally optimising the image for its eventual use.  Each application needing different  settings.  For web sites in particular images need to be just the right size.

Design & Print

Design is fundamental to you business and all the things it does. It tells people about who you are and what type of business you are. Even a simple email makes a statement about your business.

Just think about how powerful images are and how much we encounter them in every day life.

Music & Video

VIDEO

You may not initially think video has a place in your business. However a video can carry very powerful messages. Everybody is highly literate in deciphering ‘moving pictures’.

I have produced videos for restaurants, retail stores and online retail stores. ‘Videos’ can be something very simple to complex sophisticated productions. You may be surprised how little a simple video might cost you.

You can include videos in your Facebook page, website, YouTube or playing live in your business premises.
