I understand your website pain points
Even the ones you may not know about yet..
I understand that website costs can be a concerning factor for small or start-up businesses. That’s why I offer fair and affordable pricing solutions with complete transparency, and flexibility based on your specific needs.
I always follow your website design requirements and provide my recommendations where I feel it’s necessary. If you don't have any idea about the type of design you would like then fear not, I will guide you on the typical designs within your industry, and provide you with sources for inspiration.
Website responsiveness should be taken seriously, as it’s extremely important to create all points of accessibility for your visitors. I create fully responsive websites and meticulously check responsiveness from multiple device types (Mobile, Tablet, Desktop).
Managing your own website is an important factor that allows website owners to reduce ongoing support costs. I use tools and plugins that don’t restrict your access and are easy to grasp. On top of this, I will always make time for you to provide the support and training you need, whether it’s a simple task or a complex one.
One of the most important elements for me is self-ownership. I want you to own and have all control over your hosting provider, domain services, and everything else. Far too many times have I seen people fall victim to website ransom by their web designer or developer over disputes. This type of behaviour is unacceptable in my eyes, and I aim to combat it by putting the control into your hands.
It’s so important that you own all your assets, and that all your assets are attached to your email accounts and banking. By not owning your own server, domain, and other elements you are putting yourself at risk of losing everything. Sometimes this could be due to website ransom, as explained in the ‘Website Ransom’ section above, but more commonly sometimes designers stop paying their hosting fees. If your website is hosted on your designers' server then you’ll also be affected in this scenario.
Additionally, designers are unlikely to continue paying for your yearly domain fee once you’ve stopped paying for their services, and you may struggle to get them to transfer ownership, especially if you can no longer contact or you have a dispute with them.
Far too many times have I seen great looking websites with poor SEO foundation. The problem is that many designers don’t understand SEO to a good standard. I don’t like this and believe website design and SEO go hand in hand. I am very passionate about SEO, so rest assured that your website will have the best SEO foundation!
A good looking website with great functionality and search optimisation are not the only things you need to get started in your digital journey. You will also need:
- Website security (SSL)
- Google Search Console setup with sitemaps supplied
- Google Analytics setup
- Google My Business (Google business listing) Setup
I set up all of these things for you, and they’re included in any package that you purchase from me. Google My Business is set up upon request (not everyone needs it).
