Next slide: Responsive Design
Your website will work on all devices from smartphones to desktops.
Responsive Design is vital. Depending on your market up to 85%+ of viewers will use smartphones or tablets at some stage to view your site.
You can’t afford not to make the viewing experience good for them.
I make sure that they’re happy.
Next slide: ecommerce
ecomm to suit your exact requirements (and those of your customers!) built from the ground up.
From high ticket items to multiples which need specific quotes, from straight sales to cross selling, in fact all ecommerce variations.
I’ll do them as you need.
Next slide: SEO
SEO is many things and some I do and some I pass to experts in their field.
Local and on page SEO is very effective and comes with any website build.
Local Google searches are changing almost every day (it seems) but I can advise and apply the latest variations for very effective results.
If you already have a site that needs a bit of attention and love please ask.
Next slide: Content
Newsletters & Content
Newsletters are one of the best (simple) web marketing tools and are worth considering, according to your business and clients.
Content, well written, new and appealing content is great to impress and involve your clients and the God Google.
Good product photos sell more products.
Thats it. Your choice.
A good portrait of personnel will raise customer trust levels far more than a grubby old shot of the gang on a weekend awayday.
Again, your choice.
And I always add magic, just a touch…but more than you get elsewhere.

How I work
Well, how I usually work, but things change. Normally the work goes something like this:
You phone and ask about websites. I do my best to answer but you can only go so far on a phone.
We arrange a meeting either in my studio in St Leonards, or anywhere more convenient for you. Here I listen to your ideas and suggest some of my own. We agree a price.
I do a mockup of your new website, (usually only the front page is fully done). You have a look at this, wherever you may be and after a discussion we go ahead. Or not. (the Or not bit is very rare). It’s all free to now.
This is when you decide to go forward or not. You pay a deposit as agreed and we agree a date you want the site up and running.
I work on the real site, keeping you updated as you want, and when finished we discuss, change, edit and fine tune things. This can happen several times; the important thing is getting it right.
We agree when it is done, I make it go live and it is out there in the world.
For the next 6 months I’m around keeping an eye on it, changing small things and adjusting the SEO.
Call 01424 863 865 to talk about what I can do for you.
A LITTLE BIT OF USEFUL STUFF.
I make small business websites in St Leonards, East Sussex, just by Hastings. I’m based in my own studio on buzzy Norman Road where I have been making websites for 6 years.
I use WordPress to build sites with because it is versatile, powerful and easy for other people to understand and use. Other than that please ask. I’m reasonably user friendly. And like helping.
WHY IS THIS SITE SO PLAIN?
In case you are wondering: this site is very simple and plain because tests show that is what works. People don’t want flashing lights, changing colours or videos of odd men shouting ‘Buy me!’ at them. People want information. That’s it.
