From the outset in 2013 my aim was to offer small businesses in Sussex business-grade websites with an affordable cost structure, with every aspect of the sites under my management taken care of. As someone involved with small businesses over many years, I am mindful of cost, overhead and cash flow.
That doesn't mean my websites are cheap; the costs are simply spread over time. The website costs for each potential client are assessed following an initial exploratory discussion. I estimate the hours required for the initial design and build, apply a rate of £25 per hour and divide by 24. So, I breakeven after about two years. My overheads are low as are my direct costs. extraordinary. This approach provides costs for my clients which are cashflow friendly and value for money.
Most small business owners are not website technical and don't have the resource to manage their site. The tools used to build modern websites are ever-changing and updated. Almost every day one tool or another will have an update. Without being aware of these changes on a regular basis, the site starts to suffer.
Then there is Search Engine Optimisation. Full optimisation happens at the build stage. But that is not enough. The search engines change what is important for ranking over time. And your competitors are doing the best they can to rank on the web. Part of your monthly fee covers this ongoing work.
Design and Build Process
All sites are built on the WordPress.org platform using the professional-grade theme and page builders produced by Beaver Builder. WordPress is the leading web Content Management System, powering 34% of the internet in 2019 a 4% rise from the previous year. Counting only CMS-built sites, then about 60% of them are WordPress.
The website design process for each Client starts from a blank page. There are no preconceived ideas or pre-built themes. The website build process begins with a conversation about your business. How your business works. What you want to communicate to your customers through your website.
Next, we think about the content of your site and how we will structure the page layout. Once we have reached this stage, I will undertake a keyword and keyphrase analysis. Providing the basis for the content of the pages.
Then we start working on the design of your website. We will consider the branding your business has, images that are appropriate. Then we will knit the content together. Until we are both happy with all aspects of the site. Then the site is launched.

John was very patient with the whole process of building my new website and grasped an unknown subject with relish which I feel resulted in a great product which has had lots of compliments.
