Why Choose Us?
First of all, I am not your usual web designer or advertising media exec! I am not here to bamboozle you with jargon or try and scare you into buying things you simply don’t need. I’m honest, fun and I just want to help people get their business, blog or whatever it is they want to achieve, online in the most cost-efficient way possible.
I worked for some of the largest media companies in the world and frankly, I became completely disillusioned that it never seemed to be about the customer, but rather the profit margins and hitting targets. It was never considered that the sole trader plumber that had just signed up, had a family at home, relying on him to put food on the table or that the beautician, just starting out, with a strict budget to adhere to, wasn’t told about the ‘admin’ charges that would also be coming out every month. This does NOT sit comfortably with me and I will NOT work like that.
If you choose to use my services, the first thing I will do is listen to what you want! You might only want a simple 3-page website so that people can find you, get a feel for your services and contact details or, you might want a full online brochure, booking system and online shop! Either way, I will advise you the best way we can go about it, make sure you know what all your options are, in plain English, and tell you exactly what ALL costs involved would be, UP FRONT! You will NEVER have an unexpected fee suddenly appear and I will be in contact as much or as little as you want.
The other thing that makes me different is that I make sure that YOU own the website AND the domain name from day one. Far too often people sign up to a web design service, pay thousands for the design, domain name and hosting and are given the impression that this means they own it. They don’t! The company that designed it for them own it and should the time come when they wish to move it to a different hosting service, the design company will then charge them for the pleasure and make them buy the domain name from them! This is all on top of paying a monthly hosting fee! I do NOT work that way and I never will. I will also not be trying to talk you into buying anything that you don’t need, instead, I am often telling people where they can save money, reminding them that as their business grows, so can the website. Pages can always be added at a later date.
That’s pretty much the long and the short of it so if you would like to know more, please just get in touch.
