I provide a wide variety of different website services. A website serves as your presence on the internet, promoting your business or enterprise, and also providing visitors with a means to contact you. This is highly recommended for SME’s (Small or Medium Enterprises) including start-up businesses operating on a very small budget. Website design and construction is not my only internet service. I also provide all important marketing services. This is especially important for generating free traffic to your website.
Also, the website I build for you will be responsive. This means it will work very easily on Tablets and Smartphones.
Basic CMS Website
Firstly, ‘CMS’ stands for Content Management System. This means once your site has been built for you, you’ll be able to add new content or edit existing content, without my help and without having to know any ‘code’.
I start off by taking your existing logo and company information and use it to develop a simple professional website containing all the information, potential customers will need to know about your business and services. The basic website will initially consist of 3 pages, but once I hand over the reigns to you – you’ll easily be able to create as many pages as you want. Why? – because I’ll show you how to use it!
I recommend that you start off with a few basic pages; your home page and a dedicated contact page as 2 of your 3 starting pages, but the purpose of your pages is entirely up to you.
Once the site is completed, you will be able to create additional pages using the features that come with your website. Your basic website will also be optimised correctly for search engines, so people will be able to find you on Google and other search systems.
I will also carry out some important internet marketing tasks, including Keyword Research in order to determine what search phrases your potential visitors are using in search engines, to make sure the opportunity of people finding you is maximised.
- Using your preferred style and layout, along with your existing logo, I will provide a suitable design for your needs.
- Then you may ask for up to 5 design revisions, as these are included within this package. Extra design revisions will be charged at £7 each.
- When you take control of the site, you’ll be able to make as many text corrections as you wish. You’ll also be able to edit existing content and create fresh new content.
- The website may include 1 basic map designed by me, and up to 20 photographs and text providing they are supplied by you. If you wish to add extra designs you may choose as many as you wish from my Creative Services section, but they will be charged separately, as they are not included within this package.
- If you don’t yet have a domain name for your website, I can register one for you for cost (I take 0% commission. Typical prices are about £7 per year).
- If you don’t already have a web hosting account to host your website, I can provide web hosting for a Basic CMS Site for just £7 per month. I can also offer a discount if you wish to pay for a whole year in advance.
- Your website will be ‘Responsive’, which means it will adapt to whatever device your visitors use to view it, computers and smartphones (see above). As from April 2015, Google has announced that it will rank responsive sites higher than non-responsive sites – so this is now a must!
- Once the design and construction of your website is complete, this is just the beginning. I will design your site within a CMS (Content Management System). The CMS will have a Control Panel that will enable you to manage and expand your website – enabling you to build new content, without having to know any code.
Complex CMS Website or Online Shop
If you want something a bit beyond a basic website, please do let me know what you have in mind. If you wish to create an Online Magazine I can advise you as to the best course of action. I don’t just design websites, I also provide advice for ‘internet’ Start-up businesses.
If you operate a shop or other type of traditional ‘brick-n-mortar’ business, I can help you build an online shop and find new customers online, at a price that will probably be much cheaper than you expect. Get in touch with me and I will explain just how this works.
