You’ll find a wealth of inspiration, tips, and tricks to simplify your website design journey making sure your website becomes the dedicated partner your business truly deserves.

5 professionals to invest in for your new website

Creating your own website is exciting, especially when you’re just starting out. It’s your digital canvas to express your brand’s values, imagery, and tone. However, as time goes by, you might notice that your website doesn’t quite measure up to others in your field. The demands of maintaining it, updating it and keeping it secure can also become overwhelming and pull you away from other work. It’s time to consider enlisting the help of professionals who can breathe new life into your website, ensuring it shines brightly while you focus on scaling your business.

Let’s consider who to bring on board to make your web design project a success:

  1. A web designer

As a website designer, my mission is to transform your online presence into a captivating and user-friendly masterpiece. I understand the intricacies of design, functionality, and user experience, and I’m here to make your website stand out in the crowded digital landscape. I’ll craft a visually stunning site that aligns perfectly with your brand’s identity and values. Beyond aesthetics, I’ll ensure your website performs flawlessly, loading quickly and smoothly on all devices. In the longterm, I will support you with your security, maintenance and website updates, taking a whole heap of admin off your shoulders.

  1. A copywriter

I can always spot a professionally written sales page. An experienced copywriter will hone your brand voice, weaving ideas into concise language to engage your audience and drive conversion and sales. She will deliver ​​polished and error-free content, elevating your brand image and instilling trust and credibility. Although we may feel we should write our own copy (we all have access to a word processor after all), the difference a good copywriter will make is incredible, and any time you take deliberating over copy is time taken away from building your business and working with clients. I can recommend an awesome copywriter to elevate your site.

  1. An SEO expert

Keyword research and strategy are invaluable elements of building a website. Your goal is to ensure your website is pushed up through the search rankings and that you take full advantage of any SEO opportunities. I have the most fantastic SEO consultant on hand to guide you through your website launch and create a roadmap for ongoing content that will drive traffic straight to your site.

  1. A graphic designer 

There are people who barely notice inconsistencies in graphic design, and there are those of us who REALLY notice. If you’re someone who feels that jarring irritation when branding isn’t consistent, when logos look homemade and when spacing and typography aren’t on point, you’ll know it can be make or break for prospective clients – they won’t choose you if you haven’t put care into your branding and aesthetics because it shows a lack of attention to detail. Your graphic designer will create a consistent visual language for your site, capturing and retaining visitors’ attention and reflecting your professionalism.

  1. Marketing specialist

So, you have a beautiful website…but is anyone visiting? A marketing specialist will weigh in on user journey, call to actions, tying up content strategy and SEO and monitoring your analytics and tracking. They will figure out how to drive traffic to site, how to engage visitors and keep them there and which content converts.

Your Questions Answered

Choosing the right creative partner feels like a huge step – there are so many designers out there. Below, you’ll find the answers to some of the questions I most often receive. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

For years, I worked with professionals from a range of industries, including law, investment and finance, sports clubs, hospitality and consulting. I decided to focus on supporting interior designers because I know it is a field I can add extra value to with my eye for visual spacing, balance and typography.

That said, I love to support professionals from other fields – please get in touch to find out whether we’re the right fit.

The best person to ask is my past clients – please take a look at my case studies for a thorough answer! I take a lot of care over the thoughtful experience I put together for my clients – it’s important to me that I demystify and simplify the web design process so that you can enjoy the journey.

I also believe your website should be a powerhouse, working hard for you behind the scenes while you focus on your clients and then enjoy your life behind the scenes. I am passionate about using SEO and intentional design to leverage your site and bring your ideal clients to your door.

It is important to me that my clients receive the service they need within their budget. Your proposal will vary depending on whether you need support with branding, copywriting and digital strategy, and whether you require a blog. As a rough guide, projects usually cost between £3,000 ($3,800) for a simple one page site and £10,000 ($12,000) for a full website and blog. I itemise my proposal to allow you to pick the investment that feels right for you.

You can read more about how much it costs to build a website here.

I take a 50% deposit at the start of the project, with the remainder payable prior to website launch. Alternatively, you can choose to pay in instalments, with the website launch scheduled after the final payment has been received.

My Care Packages start from £100 ($125) per month, which includes hosting, updates, backups and security checks.

If you would like extra design work, including support with adding blog posts and sourcing images, I can handle that too! You can pay monthly, quarterly or annually and schedule your design hours monthly or quarterly depending on what suits your workflow.

This really varies – if you have a clear vision for your site and your content and images ready (or plan to work with a copywriter), your website could be ready for launch within a month from when I receive the final content. I schedule projects as they come in, depending on my workload and yours, and we plan a timeline together at the outset of the project.

You absolutely can, but keep in mind that it is usually the biggest job of the website build. I have a brilliant copywriter who is on hand to support you with your copy if needed, and would be happy to put you in touch. Click here to learn more about copywriting and your website design project.

I have done a lot of branding work for previous clients, including selecting and refining a colour palette and typography and logo design. I can also support you with print design for your business cards, letterheads, invoicing and email templates, as well as social media templates.

I have a sixtypoint SEO checklist that I work through for every client to ensure we give your website the very best possible chance of ranking for SEO. If you wish to get more support on SEO, I have an expert SEO consultant who provide you with a tailor made strategy and content plan for the first three months of your business.
