I build WordPress websites, offer WordPress repair and maintenance, WordPress training and e-commerce solutions.
All website’s are mobile and tablet friendly, and give the client the freedom to make their own edits to text and images.
After working in social-care sector for nearly 20 years, I decided on a complete career change and started teaching myself how to build websites using HTML , CSS and jQuery.
I then gained invaluable real-world experience working with a fast-paced creative agency, 05creative. For about 3 years I was their lead-developer, working with a very wide range of clients. I built many new websites from scratch, adapted existing ones, and learned my way around website hosting environments.
I found myself increasingly working with WordPress, partly due to high client demand for a platform that would afford them a degree of future independence when editing their site content.
Now, as a freelancer, I help small business owners and other freelancers establish and maintain an online presence.
You can expect a personal, responsive service from me as we work on your website project. I will listen to your project aims and ideas, focusing on your needs so we can create a website that meets your business requirements.
I can also make recommendations on website improvements and integration with other products such as Mailchimp, Zoho, Shopify, social media and online payment systems like Stripe and Paypal.
I make a point of developing a good working relationship with my clients, and strive to respond in a timely manner to emails and ensuring you’re keep in the loop throughout the entire process, from initial discussion to final site tweaks and going live.
Here’s a basic outline of how the process works for a full website project:
We begin with one or two discussions via phone/Skype or face to face (if you live within a reasonable travelling distance).
During our meeting we’ll talk about what your specific project requirements are and we can bounce ideas around until we develop a vision of how to progress. Every project is different and tailored to suit the requirements of your business.
How long the build will take can vary enormously depending on the size and complexity of the site. Within a few days after our first meeting, I will give you a quote so you know what to expect, budget wise.
Once the budget is agreed you will need to start gathering your site content and writing copy. Or you may want to mostly use the copy from your old website, if you have one. Either way, it’s a good idea for us to share a Dropbox or Google Drive folder so we can keep the project clear and organised.
