Web design services

My value is in the quality of my work and the customer service I provide.

As a technology professional with more than 20 years experience in the industry, I know what works, what doesn’t, and why. I’m also able to explain it to you in non technical terms so you can understand why, too.

I’m not the cheapest but I do put my customers first, that’s why most of my work is via referral or personal recommendation. I’ll find a cost effective solution that works for you, just like I do for my other clients.

I maintain a limited number of paying clients at any one time (some for more than 10 years) so you’ll always get the support you need. For every paying client I have, I help a local business who needs a helping hand for free.

Guide prices

There are some guide prices below to help your planning. Naturally I’d prefer to talk so I can understand your objectives and business priorities – that allows me to work out exactly what help you do and don’t need.

WordPress website development

I don’t price “per page” as this leads to poor content design that goes against Google’s guidelines. That’s an amateurish approach best avoided.

My preferred approach to website development is subscription based rather than the usual large up front fee plus annual hosting. It works out cheaper for you, you get a better service and I’m on hand whenever you need it.

  • Core monthly package : £59 per month
  • Performance monthly package : £99 per month
  • Advanced monthly package : from £199 per month

Monthly packages include development, hosting, SEO, ongoing support and maintenance. Minimum term applies. Alternatively if you prefer one off prices to help you compare:

  • WordPress website development using a standard theme : from £400
  • WordPress website development using a commercial theme : from £1000
  • WordPress website development bespoke to your design : Call us

AWS hosting for WordPress

Your website needs to live somewhere on the Internet. I use Amazon’s resilient, industry grade hardware in some of the world’s most advanced data centres. Daily backups and uptime monitoring included.

  • WordPress hosting only : £240 per annum (I no longer provide hosting on annual basis).
  • WordPress hosting and support : from £59 per month

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Good SEO means you get found more often by more people. I can analyse any website for SEO but only provide SEO installation and upgrade for WordPress websites.

  • Website SEO review and report (home page + 3 content pages) : £240
  • SEO upgrade to your WordPress website : from £600

This service includes “on site” improvements and recommended “off site” activities which you can do to improve the findabiltiy of your website.

Copywriting

Poorly written content reflects badly on your business. Concise, well written content and copy will give the professional and quality impression you need to make.

  • Web content review and report : £200
  • Content rewrite : from £30 per hour
  • Guest blogging and content provision : Call us

Care plans

I’ll keep your WordPress website ticking over nicely, update content and apply any software upgrades. Zero hassle for you.

  • Complete website management service from : £60 per month
  • Social media management : from £60 per month per account per platform

The regular updates available for WordPress make it one of the safest, most open platforms available, with more than 100 developers improving code and features around the global at any one time. Constant improvement takes a little effort, but the benefits far outweigh the cost.

The closed ecosystem of tools like Duda means if there’s a problem, everyone’s affected and you’re reliant upon the vendor to fix it. 🙁

Custom theme, app or plugin development

Need a bit of custom functionality? I can code in PHP, JavaScript and HTML. Call for details.

Need something else?

If there’s a service you need that you don’t see here, then drop me a line. If I can’t help you I’ll most likely be able to find someone who can. I’m not a member of any business networks so I won’t refer you to someone who’ll scratch my back.

If I recommend anyone it’s because I know, from first hand experience, that they know their stuff.

Want to have a chat?

The Internet can be a confusing place. If you’d like a no nonsense chat with someone who knows what they’re talking about, even if its just for a bit of free advice, hit me up. Always happy to help local businesses.
