Web Design for
Rugby & Warwickshire

Helping local business make an impact on the web.

 

 

Are you looking for a local and affordable website designer?

Be careful: Some companies have swamped the internet with a website for every town so that they can 'pretend' to be local. Other companies don't even build websites and simply out-source your work and take a commission. I really do come from Rugby and I really do build websites. Pop around, I'll put the kettle on, or I can drop by and visit you.

Why is having a great website is so important?

It takes a visitor to your website less than three seconds to form an opinion of your business. So it’s safe to say it is vitally important to have a great looking and fast loading website.

Does the following scenario sound familiar?

You know you need a great website to help grow your business, but those large web agency fees are considerably more than your budget allows. You may have even tried building your own website, but you quickly realised it looked like a dogs dinner and it didn't ever appear in Google searches. So what do you do now?

Let me help you!

I plan, design and build great looking websites. My websites are built meticulously to ensure the best search engine optimisation and most importantly I am affordable. By working from home, my overheads (and fees) are much lower, which means I am competitively priced to attract smaller business owners.

Responsive and mobile-friendly web design Warwickshire

Responsive & Mobile-friendly

52% of people searching online now use their mobile devices and this number is increasing every year.  Your website now needs to work perfectly on all shapes and sizes of device.

The biggest cause of 'page abandonment' is a visitor's frustration due to a website not working properly on mobile.

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation

My websites are meticulously optimised and tested for search engines such as Google. This is a vital (but unseen) element of an effective website to ensure the highest possible search rankings.

All the websites that I build go through extensive testing and auditing.

Website Hosting in Warwickshire

Domain-based Email and Hosting

Domain-based email addresses are so much more professional than an @gmail or @hotmail address. I set-up domain-based email accounts and can help configure your devices too.

I provide UK based hosting for my clients. This is faster and cheaper than big players such as GoDaddy.

Google Business Listing

Google Business Listing

95% of searches are now completed using Google, which means it is important your business is listed.

I can set-up your Google business listing. This will include your logo, images, opening hours and of course a link to your website. Without a listing you won't be on the map.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we have a chat?Of course we can! I'd be delighted to discuss your website requirements. I can visit you or you are welcome to pop around, I'll put the kettle on!  I'm happy to offer advice and recommendations with no obligation, so please get in touch.Will my new website appear in Google searches?The websites that I build are meticulously optimised and tested for search engines such as Google.  This is a vital element of any design, to ensure the greatest possibility of high search rankings. I adhere to the latest practices and clever tips to aid search engines optimisation.However, there can be no guarantees of high rankings and I will encourage you to perform some weekly tasks to help ensure Google's algorithms rank your website well.How much does a website cost?A-ha, the six million dollar question! I work full-time from my home, which means that my overheads (and fees) are much lower than those large web design studios in their office suites. Every project (and the work that is required on my part)  can vary considerably. To give you a very rough ballpark figure, the websites featured in my portfolio have typically cost £350-£500. I will provide you with a full written proposal prior to starting a project.Are there any additional costs?Each project may involve additional costs. These will vary depending on your particular circumstances. Typically these are fees that I incur on your behalf and simply pass onto you.

Shutterstock Photos £7 each
Domain name £10 (annual fee)
SSL Certificate £60 (if required, annual fee)
Hosting + Maintenance Plan £120 (annual fee)
Hosting only £50 (annual fee)
Can I make changes to the website myself?Making your own changes to your website is commonly called Content Management (CMS). Although this is possible, this is a feature I prefer not to offer my clients as 'responsive' websites are getting rather complicated and are very easy to break!However, I do offer a Hosting+Maintenance plan, which means I will make edits whenever they are requested. Typically this would be for updating photographs or editing text. If you would like to add new pages or features then there would be a modest fee (my hourly rate).Do you design other stuff, like leaflets and business cards?Yes! I produce digital artwork for projects such as leaflets, business cards and stationery. My digital artwork is 'print-ready' meaning that the files are configured for 4-colour print. I can even arrange the printing too, with your order delivered straight to your door.I'm not local to you, does this matter?Not at all. Indeed I have never met some of my Rugby based clients! The entire design process can be done via phone and email. Of course its always nice to put a face to a name, but meeting face-to-face is not necessary.
