… with someone to guide you though it every step of the way.

Design and maintenance packages

WordPress Website Package

WordPress is one of the most, if not the most, powerful and popular online website creation tools available. And I’m a big fan because it allows me to build you a fully responsive, unique, robust, fast, user-friendly and SEO-friendly site for sensible price and in a reasonable time-frame.

Here’s how we’ll work together:

We’ll have an initial, no obligation, consultation on the phone or Skype to discuss your objectives, preferences, the scope of project and timelines. If we then decide to work together, we’ll have a follow-up meeting face-to-face or on Skype to agree on the finer details before we get started.

The package includes:

  • Assistance with domain registration and hosting if required
  • WordPress + theme installation
  • Design and layout of an agreed number of pages* including: home, about, contact, privacy policy etc
  • Organisation of your site navigation
  • Social media integration

Please note that images and copy should be supplied by you.*

Post launch support:

  • Site hand-over – I’ll provide a basic ‘How to’ WordPress tutorial putting you firmly in control of your site by enabling you to easily update content.
  • Post-hand-over Skype and email support to help you with any questions or technical issues you may encounter while managing the content and functions of your site.

My rates

The fees quoted here are a guide. I work out my rates on an individual project basis because one size simply does not fit all.

To give you more flexibility on your investment I offer a lump sum or pay monthly plans.

Once I understand the size and scope of the job in hand I can give you a quote and we take it from there.
