In the fast paced digital world it’s becoming more important for most businesses to have their own website. I offer affordable website design services generally targeted at small businesses. If you don’t already have a website, the idea of having one created can sound like a daunting and potentially expensive task. I try to keep things simple and affordable. For a very basic website showcasing what your business has to offer my prices can be as little as £250 to get you completely up and running. Each project is bespoke, depending on your requirements, however you’d be surprised what’s possible on a fairly limited budget.
If you’d like to find out more, please get in touch for a free no obligation chat about what you’re looking to achieve with a new website.
I can also help if you’ve already got a website but struggle to keep it up to date. This can be anything from general day to day help with updates to more complex technical improvements. The level of help I can offer would completely depend on how your website was originally created and where it is currently hosted but I am more than comfortable working with static HTML and Wordpress sites. I can also help with hosting your website should you wish to move your site to a new provider. I can pretty much help with any issues related to your website but particularly specialise in routine content updates, creating new web pages, redesigning your website, technical audits, on page search engine optimisation and hosting.

Social Media Management
Most businesses have a presence on social media. Keeping on top of these channels to ensure your business gets the most out of them is a much bigger task. I have extensive experience using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and YouTube and this puts me in a great position to help. This can be anything from day to day management of your social media presence to a consultancy service to explore how you can get more from the channel in house. My services typically include social media channel set up, routine social media updates, audits and Facebook adverts management. I can also offer a consultancy service which includes reviewing your current position and suggesting improvements which you can implement in house.

Facebook and Google Ads
Paid digital advertising is becoming more and more essential to stand out online. Depending on what you're trying to achieve with your marketing goals, these types of adverts can be very cost effective with a high return on investment.
Standing out on Facebook and Instagram can be a real challenge. There is huge competition for attention with feeds being favoured to personal contacts over business pages. Reaching your target audience on either platform in high volumne can be difficult without investing in Facebook's advertising platform. Fortunately, this can prove very cost effective with the ability to target your audience with a vast amount of set criteria. I've personally used such adverts to promote my own websites and have been delighted with the results. This is now something I'm able to offer as a service to businesses looking to increase their brand awareness on either platform.
Google Ads are another effective way to drive traffic to your website. They work on a cost per click basis. You simply create adverts that target keywords which your customers may be using and pay each time someone clicks on the advert. It's very cost effective and easy to measure.
Search Engine Optimisation
Search engine optimisation is the practice of optimising your website to appear higher in Google (and other search engines) for your chosen keywords. If you’re looking to climb up the rankings I have a wide variety of services which can help.
Local SEO is an important area of expertise for me as I tend to work with smaller businesses. I can help by setting up or optimising your Google My Business listing. I can also look at your website to ensure you’re using the correct keywords to target location based keywords.
On page SEO
On page SEO is another area which is often overlooked. I can help by auditing your website to make sure you’re making the most of your existing content. Often a few simple tweaks to your content and placement of keywords in the correct areas of your pages can have amazing results.
Keyword research is another crucial element of any SEO strategy. Businesses must ensure they know which keywords they should be targeting, where they currently rank for these keywords, where their competitors rank and what changes they can make to improve these rankings. I’ve got the experience to perform an in depth audit of your website from a keyword perspective.
Building links from other websites underpins all of the activities mentioned above. Having links from external websites tell search engines that your website is authoritative in it’s area. This generally results in better rankings for your chosen keywords which hopefully results in more traffic to your website and more work/sales for your business.
I can offer all of the above services independently or as part of a bigger SEO audit of your website. I can also offer consultancy/training if SEO is a skill you would like to develop to apply yourself.

Having good photos for your website can often make or break the experience for your users. I’ve always believed that having high quality photos is essential for a professional looking website. I offer a budget solution for capturing photos that reflect your business. I don’t offer the same standard as a professional photographer but my prices reflect this. My images are captured on a digital SLR camera and edited in Photoshop and will be more than adequate for your website and social media platforms at a significantly cheaper cost. I can also offer advice on camera choices and settings if this is a skill you’re looking to develop in house.
