Website design & development
I make smart, simple websites for small businesses. Mobile friendly, easy to use and cheap to own, they're ideal for local businesses, startups and sole traders.
Simple, effective websites
Not everyone wants to spend a fortune on their website, especially if you only need something simple. Quite often the key facts about your business, your contact details and some good quality photographs are all you need to advertise your business effectively.
I specialise in developing small business websites using Google Sites. Simple websites are simpler to use. That’s good design. Have a look at this one for example.
Ideal for small business and startups
If that sounds like you, then let’s talk. I’m an experienced web developer who creates smart, simple solutions that reflect the quality and professionalism of your business. I’ll host your solution and get you found in Google, too.
With some well crafted content and some high quality images I’ll create an online presence that you’ll be proud of. It’ll be easy to find and simple to use.
Simple, mobile ready design
I can create a cost effective website that will get your business noticed. With a high quality, template driven approach I can get your business website online and working for you within a matter of days.
I won’t do complex glossy designs that don’t actually get your visitors to do anything. My designs and layouts are clean, easy to follow and tell your story, sell your products… whatever the purpose of your website is.
Built in SEO
Each website comes with basic SEO built in. Code, content and images will be optimised for Google. To keep the costs down you’ll need to do your bit by adding a blog article, updating your social media and generally keeping your website “alive” and not just “live”.
If you do want to boost your SEO with Google’s free business services and more advanced techniques, then talk to me.
Edit your own content easily
If you can edit a Word document or a Google doc, you can edit your own website content too. Using a standard web browser can log into your site and add pages, posts, images and text whenever you want to. There's no software to download or complex instructions to follow.
I’ll make sure we have left enough room for changing the design without losing content. My focus is on keeping things simple and understanding your requirements.
Most of my clients have an outline of what they want their website to do but have no idea what they want it to look like. Yes, they tend to have a colour theme and of course, I’ll incorporate it. (Some even only have a business card and ask my to wave a magic wand and be creative – no problem).
Want to work with me?
I know what it takes to set up and run effective online presence. I make, manage and optimise websites for local businesses; my web design services include everything necessary to get an online presence to be proud of.
You might think that if you work with a smaller web design services firm you won’t get the quality or service you’d naturally associate with a bigger agency. That’s not the case. I don’t have the overheads of a large agency and if you’re doing a project with me, you know it’s me working on it and not the latest intern or some guy who used to fit kitchens for a living.
I’m as excited about your idea as you are.
If you think I can help with your project, please drop me a line. I’m always happy to have an obligation free chat and who knows, we both might learn something.
If you’re looking for a web designer in Whitley Bay, or some SEO expertise to improve your website, I’m your man.
If I can’t help, I may be able to point you in the direction of someone who can!
