I offer a website design-development service which involves listening to your needs and requirements and converting them into a bespoke, fast, mobile-friendly website. My aim is to build great looking, very usable websites that are produced using clean code.
There are three main types of website available, the first is a static site, which means that the content of the pages does not change and these don't have a blog or news section, the second is a CMS (Content Management System) based site, these allow the content to be changed by an administrator via an internet-based control panel, these can easily accommodate a blog or news section, and the third is websites built online using a provider such as Squarespace.
I can build unique websites using all methods, including facilitating for clients on Squarespace.
You may ask why I chose to use a relatively unheard of CMS system in Perch rather than Wordpress, Drupal or Jumla, the reasons are:-
- It is very easy to integrate into an existing static website, it does not add anything to the code, keeping it very clean
- It is well supported and has a very good community around it
- It is very easy for clients to use the control panel with its simple structure
- It is fast
- It is constantly being developed and improved, with regular updates being very easy to install
- It requires no special hosting environment
I offer a labour pack for websites I have built, these can be purchased in blocks of five hours. Once purchased the hours can be used as necessary for maintenance, updates or just site improvements, before any work is started I will give a time allowance to any particular job.
Good SEO ensures your website is found above others when people are searching for products or services with search engines.
To gain a good ranking several aspects of your website will have to be optimised, these include content, security, responsiveness, links and domain names, all aspects of the process I can help with.
As a web consultant, I will select the best fit of website to suit your needs and budget. This may mean that an online website builder such as Squarespace is the correct path choice, I can then help style and build this for you.
Web Security is an important feature of any website, I offer https as a standard feature on all website builds. Https will become more important as time passes as this is factor built into Google's ranking algorithm and so not having https will adversely affect your ranking.
As a matter, of course, I build in anti-spam features such as never displaying your email address in the source code for spam-bots to grab and use, and I also build in a honeypot feature to contact forms, this also reduces the chances of spam.
If search engines are targeting mobile-users, so should you. With smooth, clean interfaces we improve usability and make it easy to navigate. By encouraging mobile-users to explore your online store, we make it easier to purchase and improve your SEO.
Your website can be linked to web analysis tools. This gives you the insight to determine which pages of your website are performing well and which need improving.
I can offer a hosting package to suit your needs, these will vary dependent on your website and are usually charged as a yearly fee but in certain circumstances can be paid monthly. Although Domain names can be bought on behalf of clients, I have found it causes fewer problems in the further down the line if a client makes the purchase themselves.
Quality hosting means your website will be live over 99.99% of the time.
With my eCommerce websites, you will have a powerful website that provides an easy online shopping experience. Giving visitors a user-experience that makes them want to purchase and come back for more.
Logo design is an important part of the overall build of a website as it portrays your businesses brand image and communicates your company values and of course, makes a great first impression.
This is something I offer as part of a package, but I work in conjunction with a graphic designer who is very talented and far better than me, who will design and iterate a logo for you.
I then take this logo and build it into your website, using colors, fonts etc. that compliment it.
