I am a senior wordpress web developer and web designer based in Central London offering a wide variety of website design and development solutions for SMEs, local businesses and self-employed professionals including informational, promotional and ecommerce websites. Whether you’re looking for a brand new or wish to further develop an existing website, I would be happy to help you achieve your goal.
Over 15 years of industry experience. So you can throw pretty much anything at me and I will make it happen. If I can’t do it personally; I will know someone that can.
I am a real all-rounder. From a logo design to the development of a bespoke web application I can help. I describe myself as a Creative Full Stack Web Developer which simply translates to design, plus backend and frontend web development.
All websites are bespoke and tailored to making your business a success. Once we've fully discussed what your website needs to achieve I can provide you with an exact cost which we are confident will give you a return on your investment.
Company Websites - projects costs start from £999
Ecommerce Websites - projects costs start from £1,499
Website Maintenance - costs start from £99
Timescales are dependent on the size of the project and the time it takes to provide content, information and feedback. Please use the below as a rough guide.
Company Websites - approximately 2-4 weeks
Ecommerce Websites - approximately 2-6 weeks
Once we agree your project is a great fit and you have paid the initial payment, I will schedule in the work. There is usually a lead time of 1-2 weeks. During this time you can be getting your content together.
Copy - I ask for draft content during the Structure and content stage of the project (see my process). This allow us to discuss how your content should be structured to ensure it delivers your goals. Final copy is needed before the Website build stage.
Photos - High resolution images of your product or service is essential to do your business justice. If you don't have these yet we can discuss the type of shots and styling which would be required.
Branding - A vector version (ai, eps, pdf or svg file) of your logo is required if possible, and any other branding/marketing assets you have.
If you are missing any of these let me know on initial contact and I'll be able to put you in touch with freelancers to help.
My process encourages you to get involved. You know your business inside out, without this knowledge being fed into the project we won't end up with the best result. I would want us to approach your project project as partners rather than a client and a supplier.
Yes! I'm based in London, but I work remotely with clients all over the globe. I use a project management system which makes working together from any location easy.
Absolutely, all Corporate Websites are built on a Content Management System (CMS). This means you can edit and add content to the site. A training session will be provided to make sure you are confident with updating your website (see training question below).
Yes! For Corporate Websites we will arrange a 1 hour one-to-one training session to walk you through managing your website. Ideally in-person if London based, or over a Skype screen share. I would also like to keep in contact with you beyond the launch of your website, to make sure it continues to work for your business.
I will build your website with on-page SEO and ensure that Google's search-bots can crawl your website with ease. I will make sure the website is well structured, validates to the latest web standards, images are optimised, contains all fields for meta data, friendly URL structure and is fast to load.
After the website is launched there should be an ongoing marketing effort to drive traffic to your website. This includes making sure the content on your site is kept fresh and relevant (a blog is ideal for this).
Your online marketing is an investment, you need to look at the long-term value that hiring the right partner will give you. Your investment won't only just get you a 'pretty' website; I have years of experience creating sites which connect with users, converting browsers into buyers, delivering you a return on your investment. I'd be working collaboratively with you to make sure we achieve your business goals, and provide a website which can be updated easily by yourself.
Yes! I use WordPress for Corporate Websites and Woocommerce for Ecommerce Websites.
WordPress is a popular open-source content management system (CMS) that is widely used for building websites and blogs. Some of the reasons why I choose to use WordPress include:
Ease of use: WordPress is designed to be user-friendly, making it easy for people manage their own websites.
Flexibility: WordPress is highly customizable, with a wide variety of themes and plugins available to add different functionality to a website, from e-commerce capabilities to social media integration.
SEO-friendly: WordPress is optimized for search engines, making it easier for websites built with it to rank well in search results.
Scalability: WordPress can handle a small personal blog or a large enterprise website, it can scale to meet the demands of a growing business or audience.
Mobile-friendly: WordPress is responsive, which means it can adapt to different screen sizes and devices, including mobile phones and tablets.
