Building Websites For Small-Medium Sized Businesses and Events
If you’re looking for a new website for your business, you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve been running my freelance business for almost 5 years now (and of course, was also working before this too). During my time working with all these different companies I noticed a trend – nobody had a sound website that performed exactly as it should. Infact, hardly any of the companies had any faith in their website what so ever!
To me, it was mind blowing as online marketing was starting to soar. Why did these companies not get their website up to scratch?
That’s when my love for web design and development boomed. Almost 7 years ago I built my first website for the company I was working for and there was no looking back. I was hooked on the HUGE impact a website could have on a business.
From then on I set out to be able to give small-medium sized businesses the opportunity to have a website that was affordable, looked great and brought results!
A website is an investment, not an expense. It is one of the number one online platforms that will drive more business for you. My previous clients will vouch for that. I’m not here to throw you a website together as fast as I can like many agencies will. I’m here to build you an online platform that backs your brand, and achieves whatever objective it is that you need it to achieve.
Of course, I can’t ever say that one of my websites will turn your business around overnight. But they can certainly have a HUGE impact and play an extremely important role in your online marketing strategy.
Let’s look at it this way. You’re responsible for getting the people to your website, and I’m responsible for ensuring that people who land on your website take ‘the next step’ whether that be gaining leads, selling products, booking an appointment etc…
I refuse to spread myself too thin. I don’t have 20 projects going on at one time, and I never will. Bringing my clients a quality service is one thing I pride myself on, so I’m never chasing my tail when it comes to your website.
As I mentioned before, I don’t tend to just ‘throw a website together’ with the information you tell me. You also get my design and customer journey experience skills too. I will let you know when what you want is not best for your website or customer. A website needs to perform and look great, so I tend to stay away from things that are going to counter-act results.
On another note, if I think your brief is more suited for an agency, I’ll tell you. And I’ll recommend agencies I trust. 🙂
I won’t lock you into any contracts or tie you to any particular service – that’s up to you! When it comes to setting up your domain and hosting, I’ll support but ensure you fully own everything.
That’s not what I’m here to do. I don’t have the same overheads as an agency does, so my prices can stay fair and affordable while also reflect the value and service you will receive (I plan to keep it this way).
The majority of my website builds for clients are built using WordPress CMS, a perfect solution for small-medium sized businesses who want a website that looks fantastic and performs as it should. WordPress is the engine and foundations of my websites, but the look, feel and layout of the site is 100% customisable. Once created, WP allows users to edit almost any aspect of the website from any device – no downloads, no special CMS, no apps, nothing. And for businesses with a team, user access to only certain areas of the site when and where required is an option.
I need you at the very beginning as we go through the initial consultation, and at the very end when it comes to reviewing and launching your brand new website. All of the rest I’ll take care of!
Domains, hosting accounts, SSL certificates, plugins etc goes over ALOT of peoples heads. Don’t worry, if it goes over yours too you’re not the only one. That’s what I’m here for. I’ll keep things simple for you so the process is as pain free as possible.
I was looking for someone to create my website and was recommended onto Megan by a friend. From start to finish she made the whole process clear, simple and stress free for me. I sent an initial email enquiry to her and soon after I had my entire website created and had it all live and up and running. I couldnt recommend her services any more. She is extremely professional and talented and i couldnt be happier with the finished product she created for me. Thanks for everything Megan 🙂
