Project design & development process.
The Initial Coffee Meeting
I feel that it's better for the both of us to meet face to face either in a coffee shop or across continents on zoom or skype. The initial phase of the project is so that we can get to know each other and see if were a good fit to work on your project. Faceless companies like Wix or Squarespace cannot really get a feel what you or your business is about
Delivery & Launch
Future Ongoing Maintenance
A small selection of my most requested services.
Bespoke Website Development + Design
Its not just WordPress I work with. Some clients want a highly customized and unique website built. These projects I relish and are usually built using the latest PHP and MySQL techniques.
WordPress powers most of the websites live today. I develop and design custom built WordPress themes from the ground up. A lot of WordPress sites however use downloadable themes.
Maintenance & Care Plans
It's not just Hosting you need to worry about. Keeping a Website up and running and secure can be a headache. This is why I create bespoke website care plans so I take out the stress of looking after your website.
Website Review & Suggestions
I have unique insights into what does and does not work when it comes to websites and blogs. A good website is fast loading, responsive, up to date and free from malware. Let me check your website
Wether it be WordPress or a Custom built project. I provide a custom eCommerce website that loads fast, is secure and built around you and your business. Once the site Is launched I provide training on how to use it.
AWS Hosting & Email setup
I love Amazon AWS for many reasons. Firstly it indulges my passion for developing websites at the cutting edge. It also gives me a lot more control over mine and my clients websites live on the web.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the most common questions asked about Website Design & Development.
Yes I do. When I am working on a project I am working a minimum of eight hours a day and six and a half days a week.
The short answer is a yes, I do require a deposit before I start on a project. Like most freelancers out there I have to protect my time working on a project
A deposit is usually 50% of my fee to start but sometimes I do a third on start, a third during the build and the final third on completion.
Yes you will. You are hiring myself to build you a website utilizing my skills as a website developer. Once the site is complete I will make available all of the website files, assets and databases to you.
Yes there are usually a few other costs involved in running a website which are separate from my original quote. I have listed a few of these below
Here is a list of the most common costs involved which are separate from my original quote
- Hosting & Maintenance = This starts from £25 a month, See my Care Plans
- Domain = This is the location of your website and they vary, usually starting at a couple of pounds for a .com
If you wish for me to go into more detail about extra costs and what any of the above does, feel free to drop me an EMAIL and I will be more than happy to answer your queries.
Thats not a problem. I am always more than happy to answer any of your questions, queries or concerns. Simply drop me an EMAIL I will get back to you usually within 24 hours.
Absolutely I can help you. I have helped many different people from many different countries over the years with their websites. You may be unhappy with your website because it's dated and doesn't look modern. Or perhaps it's slow to load or you don't know how to update it.
Let me help. I offer free appraisals and provide honest feedback in easy to understand English with minimum “Tech Speak”.
Simply EMAIL ME and I will usually respond within 24 hours if not a lot sooner.
Put simply ‘Hosting’ is a service that makes your website viewable on the World Wide Web. Without it, your website cannot be accessed by the people you want to attract. With all that in mind, yes, you do need it.
You may already have your own hosting, which is not a problem at all because I have over a decade worth of experience working with lots of different hosts, uploading websites, optimizing them for speed and security, and finally setting up domain-based email accounts.
Let me know if you have any questions or queries you wish for me to cover by dropping me a quick email.
I am afraid to say thats going to be a no. I could be working weeks on yours while missing out on paid work and what if your idea flops?
I started carving a career in web development over 18 years ago in the early 2000s. I now have over a decades professional website development experience.
Yes, you can and it’s really easy to do. With the exception of simple static sites, most websites I build are based on the WordPress platform.
WordPress is called a ‘content management system’ and allows you to create, edit, and delete new pages, embed various kinds of media and write blog posts. I run masterclasses on how to use the interface and how to keep your website running smoothly. I am not like other developers who abandon you to fend for yourself once the website goes live.
If you want to edit the look and feel of the site by changing things like fonts or images that are used in the theme itself, it is always best to consult with me first. I will always be available to help you and will be happy to make any changes you require.
It really depends on the size, complexity, and many other things. In the ten plus years I have never gone over a date that I have agreed to with any of my clients worldwide and I guarantee that I work a minimum of eight hours a day five days a week and even on weekends when required.
The usual time period for simple static sites is two weeks from agreeing to the contract and deposit being received, to a month or more for more complex websites like eCommerce or Forum types.
I generally deliver well ahead of time though as I have been known to go on twelve hour coding marathons.
A good question which deserves a good answer. There are many benefits as to why you should choose me over a web development agency that can be difficult at times to work with, or another developer. Below I list a few of the main reasons
- Hiring a freelance website developer like me guarantees a highly competitive price over other developers or agencies.
- A more personal and professional service is easier for me as a freelancer as I have a lot more time to explain how I build the website and how you can run it.
- I will not abandon you after the launch of your website. I am always available to consult with going forward. I also provide masterclasses on how to run the site once it’s launched.
- I usually only take on a couple of projects at a time so I can design and code your website to an excellent standard and not have to rush to finish a project.
- I make sure that the website gets finished and delivered on time by agreeing to a date before I start on the project.
- I always want to make an excellent first impression, so I will always reply to your questions and queries in a timely fashion.
- As a freelance web developer, I rely on referrals and word of mouth to keep my business moving forward. With this in mind, I make sure that you are 100% satisfied with your website and my service.
- I love working with my clients and my reputation means a lot to me. See what others have written about me on my Facebook page, Google and Trustpilot.
