Custom Website Design

Imagine if customers landed on your website and instantly felt the desire to work with you.

They click on the site and immediately know that you are the right fit for them. You can provide them with the product or service that they’ve been looking for and you yourself resonate with them. That’s what the perfect website can do.

You want to stand out and attract your perfect customers but they’re just not noticing you. The harder you try, the more desperate you feel and the more energy you lose. Why can’t you get more customers?!

 

Custom WordPress Website Design

Even when you do manage to get people to land on your site, they’re not converting. Why? Is the website ugly? Not professional enough? Am I not good enough at what I do?!

These are all thoughts running through your head but let me reassure you, you are good enough. You are great at what you do! The problem is, people judge by the front cover. Everyone says that they don’t but in this case they do!

If your website doesn’t look professional, doesn’t stand out, doesn’t represent your brand and doesn’t effectively communicate what you do, then you’re losing customers.

What you need is a good website, personalised to you, your goals and your target audience.

I can help you to get this fabulous website and help you to get more customers.

 

I am a website designer working with small creative businesses and entrepreneurs to help them to get a website that represents themselves and their businesses to show off who they are, what they do and why their potential customers should choose them over anyone else!

I come from a family of business owners, so I’ve always known the struggles of having your own business but also the amazing rewards it can bring.

I have a true passion for creativity and for helping small businesses to succeed so I’ve created this package so that we can go really in-depth to build a website that is perfect for your business and will scale as your business grows.

How does it work?

The time frame that I work to for custom 5+ page websites is 8 weeks and I only work on 2 custom sites at a time.

I work in this way so that I can give clients my full attention rather than being split across various projects, you get a great website quickly and it saves my sanity! I’ve had more than 20 projects on the go at once before and it really doesn’t work –  that is why I now use the process below:

< Week 1 - Prep

I have a design brief and workbook that needs to be filled out before we can start the project. This ensures we have absolutely everything we need to get going with the project from week 1 and we’ll finish on or before week 8!

Week 1, 2 & 3 - Wireframes

‘Wireframe’ is a fancy name for ‘layout’ in the web design world. They don’t include any design element e.g. colour or images, they just help to decide where everything should go. This step takes the longest amount of time because I think about your website goals and where to place things to ensure your website is as successful as possible.

Week 4 & 5 - Designs

This is the fun part! We get creative, adding in your colours, fonts and images to create a beautiful and unique website for your beautiful and unique business.

Week 6 - Build

Surprised this doesn’t take longer? I allow one week for the build because once the designs are decided, it’s very straightforward for me to build the actual website using WordPress and a theme called Divi.

Week 7 - Feedback & Testing

Not to be underestimated, this step is where we tie up all the loose ends. Do all the links work? Does the website perform well on mobile devices? Are all the images displaying? Are all the fonts and text sizes correct?

Week 8 - Launch!

Perhaps the most exciting step of all is where we finally press ‘publish’ on the website and launch it for the world to see! We’ll have a final video call on this week to discuss the project and how everything went, as well as ideas on how to keep driving traffic to the website and how to make edits yourself.

Please bear in mind that there will be a schedule and deadlines for us both to stick to, but this will result in a fabulous website in a relatively short amount of time! This will be managed in my project management tool, Asana. 

From £1,600

(based on a 5 page website – usually Home, About, Services, Blog, Contact. Extra pages and functionality can be added)

Here’s the nitty-gritty! – Absolutely everything that is included in the package:

• In-depth design brief and workbook for you to fill out so I know as much information about your business as possible to help me to build a website that’s perfect for you and your business

• Shared Asana project (project management tool)

• Website within 8 weeks provided deadlines/schedule are followed (please bear in mind that there may be a waiting list to start the project)

Payment plans available to spread the cost of your website

• Private mood board created via Pinterest to collect inspiration and your existing branding

• 2 ‘wireframes’ to choose from to decide the layout. Wireframes have no design element and are made up of black and white boxes to help decide where everything should go

• 2 full colour designs to choose from for the home page based on the chosen wireframe/layout

• 1 full colour design for all remaining pages based on the chosen home page style

• 2 rounds of amendments included at each stage

• Full development of the website. I take the approved designs and build a fully functional website

• Built using WordPress so you can easily log in and update the website yourself if you would like to

• Fully responsive across mobiles and tablets. The website will work regardless of what device you view it on. Google now prefers this and mobile friendly websites get higher rankings. A lot of companies charge extra for this but I include it as standard!

• All text content and images provided by the client

• Favicon included (the little icon that represents your website in the address bar!)

• Google Analytics can be set up and installed on your website by me for free. If you already have a Google Analytics account, I can ensure that it tracks your new website

• Existing website remains live while your new website is being developed. I then swap them over once you are happy with the new website. If you don’t already have a website, then an under construction page is provided

• Fully tested to ensure that everything is working as it should be

• SEO friendly. Full SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is not included as this is a long and ongoing process, however I do take steps to improve your SEO where possible e.g. installing an SEO plugin and providing alternative tags for images. If you’d like to work on this further, I can provide details of companies who specialise in this

• Blog function included as standard

• Integration with your social media pages so website visitors can easily find where they can follow you

• Contact form provided as standard

• Free advert on my social media pages and email newsletter once complete

• Free video and PDF guides to the website so you know how to update the website yourself (otherwise updates are charged at £28 per hour as and when you need them, and I also offer a website maintenance package)

• All details for the website are provided to you and I ask you to buy the hosting and domain name yourself so ultimately the website is owned by you

• Ecommerce fuction if you’d like to sell products online (extra cost)

• As many pages as you need (priced accordingly, 5 pages included as standard)
