Graduating in 1999 I was employed to self-train as a web designer before taking on webmaster roles in online gaming and insurance. Moving into front-end development and internet marketing for several years, I went freelance with my skill set in 2006.
To date. the services I can provide include, but are not limited to: responsive website design, ecommerce websites, digital marketing and online reputation management, graphic design, website copywriting, hosting & support and GDPR compliance.
If you are looking to invest in a website but want to avoid the expense or uncertainty of working with an agency or large company, I can offer 21 years of commercial and freelance experience in creating websites for small businesses and organisations.
In my hometown of Worcester, I began to design websites in a commercial environment in 1999. I pretty much haven't stopped since, and while I now operate as a freelance web designer, it remains my full time job.
I pride myself on being approachable and friendly, working with clients on a one-to-one basis. Able to communicate about web technology at any level of knowledge, I'm always available to advise and support.
Working on a fixed fee basis I offer a complete service, value for money and with no hidden extras. I produce work to a very high standard; the time and effort for which you are likely to pay a far higher agency fee.
An estimated completion date is fixed at the start of any project, with all future queries and requests dealt with in the shortest possible time. This is my livelihood, so be assured that I won't disappear into the ether.
The sales pitch from an abundance of web design and marketing agencies will advise you against hiring a freelance web designer like myself, suggesting that a team of individual experts is far better. I don't know why, perhaps it justifies their fees?
While it might be fair to say that some freelance web designers do make things look fantastic, but lack expertise in dealing with small business owners and helping them to generate leads, I can assure you this is not the case with the Small Business Web Designer.
I've been involved in small business web design and digital marketing for over 20 years, remaining up-to-date with trends and techniques best suited to small businesses. As a freelance web designer I offer clients a friendly, personal service, in addition to an affordable and effective web design package.
Read what clients say and if you think I can help your small business, please do not hesitate to contact me.
