Website Design Service for small business & Individuals

What is different about my website design service?

Many web design companies may build you a website cheaply, but the catch is that they also host your website and lock you into a monthly maintenance fee. You are also obliged to return to them for any extra work. Additionally, should you ever become unhappy with their service and want to go elsewhere, you’ll likely have to get someone to build you a whole new website. 

With any website I build, you get the option to either self-manage, or let me manage it for you. The choice is yours.

Building your website

Website Design

I specialise in responsive web design services and build websites for individuals and small businesses using WordPress and Elementor. These platforms are one of the easiest and most flexible to use.

Once your site is ready, you can simply login to the dashboard and manage it yourself, make changes to text and prices and also write regular blogs.

adapts to device

These days a website is no longer just viewed on a PC or laptop, many are now using tablets and smartphones. Your website needs to be responsive to these different devices.

Also, Google will downgrade your website if it is not mobile friendly. A WordPress website is fully adaptable and responsive to the device it is being viewed upon.

Pricing

Below are some price guides. However for some websites the actual price may depend upon the scope of the website being built or re-built. Every website is different so first we will have a meeting to discuss your exact needs. I will give you an estimate of the final cost then.

Klarna - Spread the cost over 3 interest free payments.

Highly professional and exceptional service, worth more than 5 Stars ! Ian transformed my antiquated website into a stunning modern website. Throughout the entire process Ian was available to offer advice and suggestions on the best build for my type of photography. This was a two-way engaging process with regular updates from Ian. In addition, Ian also gave me valuable advice and ideas on other features that could be implemented at a later stage. The whole process was very smooth and at the end Ian gave a very helpful Handover presentation via video call. Ian is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and clearly has a passion for his work, going above and beyond. Ian is very affable, our discussions during the video calls extended well beyond the website requirements into many other areas of photography and travel. I would definitely recommend Ian to anyone looking to build a website or who requires web related services.

I have used Ian twice now . First he consulted me when I started to design my first Word Press site. Then later at the end I had him come in and help me with some issues I had been unable to fix and put the finishing touches on the site, do the SEO and redo my choice of plugins. I realized then I should have brought him back into the project way before then. Ian is highly knowledgeable about WordPress and easy to work with. I highly recommend him for you WP project.

Ian has designed the most fantastic website for my photography workshops & tours business. From the very beginning Ian has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He is professional, enthusiastic and very personable. Not only did Ian work with me on my vision of what I wanted the website to accomplish, he also made numerous fantastic recommendations on how the website could further be enhanced and optimised for best performance and reach. Ian provided regular updates on how the site build was progressing and has talked us through all aspects of the site and it's running since it went live. He has great patience and answers questions without any delay. With his knowledge, expertise and recommendations I now have a website I feel truly showcases my photography business. I have no doubt my business will 100% benefit from the new website Ian has created. I would highly recommend Ian and the fantastic services he offers. If I could give 10 stars I would!

Self-managed wordpress websites

My self-managed website design service gives you full control to manage your own website. If required, I will set you up with your own hosting package, build the website and show you how to update, if you want. For updates, maintenance you can either come to me or go elsewhere. You will only be charged for the work I actually do. Additionally, should you become unhappy with me, or I get run over by a bus, you can still go to another designer and will keep the website that you have already paid for.

Self-managed website

  • Pay only for the work I do
  • No monthly maintenance fees
  • Your own hosting package
  • New websites or rebuilds

Fully managed wordpress websites

I realise also that some people prefer to have their websites fully managed by someone else. This could simply be because you are too busy, or feel better knowing that an expert is looking after all aspects of your website.

Therefore I offer a managed option in addition to building your site, which includes your own hosting setup and looked after by me, and taking care of all updates and any technical problems. Also, regular backups.

Fully managed website

£ 45+ Per month
  • Your own hosting package

  • Wordpress & plugins updates
  • Pro plugins

SEO and WordPress training

WordPress training

Do you have a wordpress site already and want to learn how to edit and update it yourself? I offer one to one training online via zoom to help you. Whether you’ve had me build the website or someone else, my training will help you take control of your website and not have to rely on paying someone else.

WordPress and Elementor may at first seem a little daunting, but they are really easy to use once you know how. You don’t need any technical knowledge, just a little training to help you navigate their features.

We can even build your website together so you will learn on the job.

 

SEO Strategy

SEO is short for search engine optimization. The Internet has exploded over the years and now the chances of your website being found organically on search engines like Google is much lower. It’s not impossible though.

A good SEO strategy is ever more important. This means optimizing your pages with the right keywords and written content so that search engines can easily match your website with the right searcher, helping you reach your target customer.

I will build SEO into your website from the ground up and optimize your content using the best keywords and also build each page to be search engine friendly.

I am a Professional Landscape Photographer and have had a website for a very long time. However, I was looking at refreshing it, updating it and improving it.

My website is very important to me, so when a friend recommended Ian and suggested I contact him with a view to doing all these things, I was only too happy to do so..

As a Professional Photographer, imagery is very important to me and I knew straightaway after speaking with Ian, that we were on the same page. As a Professional Photographer himself, Ian understood the importance of projecting my images in the strongest way possible. This allied with his incredible website skills he was able to build a new website for me which has exceeded all my expectations. Ian's in depth knowledge and understanding of my website needs was admirable and very reassuring..

Not only does it look amazing, but it also has so much information which the viewer is guided through the site effortlessly. This has already increased the amount of traffic coming through my site..

I have jumped to the 1st page of all the search engines for my landscape locations since Ian has been involved with my website..

I would thoroughly recommend Ian if you are looking for a new website or just looking at improving the mechanics of an existing one. His manner is extremely professional and he is always available to guide me through anything I am unsure with and deals with it in a polite, prompt and skillful way.

Ian helped me to design a new website for my osteopathy business. He listened to my requirements and even took the time to do his own research to understand my competition, how to best market my business and how to best utilise my content and link it to the best google search terms. His advice in regards to SEO has been invaluable, and I am left with a very professional, modern and user friendly site. I have already had lots of new enquiries through my website, the enquiry form has been invaluable and I am so pleased to finally have a blog to post content and really show case my business. Ian is extremely thorough, very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in tailoring a website to a business model. I couldn’t have done it without him, this has given me the best start to launching my business and I am extremely grateful. I would thoroughly recommend Ian.

I am a new small business owner. I was really struggling putting together a website. While seeking to gain more knowledge, I came across Ian's SmugMug tutorial YouTube videos. After visiting his website, I discovered his web design services and decided to reach out. I am very glad I did. Through trial and error, he helped me create a website far greater than what I had envisioned. I am confident and proud of how my work is portrayed! Ian was flexible and patient with my schedule. He was quick to respond to any request or concern. Most importantly, he was able to work with me and provide my fantastic website within MY budget. No contract, hourly rates, and he has stated/proven he is available for further assistance if I need any! What I appreciated most about working with Ian; for every request I had, along with making the adjustments himself, he would send me a tutorial video, just so I could have an understanding/knowledge of how he accomplished something on my site. He made the process seamless and exciting for me. I am so thrilled I utilized his services. I would highly recommend for any service he offers!
