I approach web design from your potential customers' point of view. Creating a site that answers their needs, gives them all the reasons they need to make contact, and convinces them that you are better than your competitors.
It's only by working closely with you, giving you ideas and advice, that together we can create the best possible website for your budget.
This is the most common and economical type of website. Ideal for 5 - 30 page sites where the content ocassionaly changes. Also called brochure sites.
Slightely more time consuming to build, but you can update and maintain them yourself. Ideal for 30+ page sites where the content is frequently changing.
The most expensive type of site to produce, as it integrates a content management system with stock control, sales processing and payment gateways.
No two clients are ever the same, nor do they have matching requirements, so I design and build all my websites from the foundations up, by hand.
Budget brochure site? Full content management system? Ecommerce? Members only forums? Live online chat facility? Photo galleries? Data capture? Visitor tracking? Mobile specific site? PDF downloads? Data base integration? Landing pages? Photography? Web video?
The internet is developing and evolving at phenomenal rate, so I build all my sites with the very latest technology, approved by W3C and tested across all browsers on Mac and PC.
I hate analogies, but it's a bit like asking how much does a car cost? Do you need a Formula 1 racer or a Nissan Micra? We need to have a chat about your requirements, and then I can do the research and come back to you with a economical and accurately costed solution.
You get what you pay for.
My mother always said "If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well."
So how does this relate your business?
Well, the problem is that most clients base their appointment on price, but don't know what they are buying - and there are so many shortcuts that can be taken behind the scenes.
I guarantee that I will build your site with the latest technology for greater longevity and value for money. All the code will be written by hand for faster download times and maximum impact on the search engines. I will personally write all the meta data individually for each page. The markup will be simple and semantic, so that any designer can pick up the baton if in the unlikely event you decide to move elsewhere.
Each page will be validated by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), as set up by the founder of the Web, Tim Berners-Lee.
And it will be legal. Complying with all your requirements as a website owner, such as: the Disability Discrimination Act, Companies House, HMR&C, and a whole load of other UK and EU regulations.
Like I said, it's impossible to have a menu of prices, as everyone's requirements are totally individual.
But as I have a unique amount of experience, and work from home with low overheads, I can give you "more bangs for your buck" ... as the Americans would say.
