“A website allows us to tell our stories, our gospel. It is the online journey of Communion, there is so much going on in the company that the website needs to reflect this.

Rather Inventive are brilliant! Great technical knowledge, clear thinking, strategic, and easy to work with.”

“My old website no longer conveyed the image I wanted for my company. It was outdated and didn’t offer a good shopping experience for my customers.

The customers now find my new website informative, easy to navigate and they are confident they can shop safely.”

Web design project process

Project Planning

Projects are based around a number of Zoom calls. We start with planning the website objectives and how they benefit your audience through to a follow-up call when the site is live.

We use project communication and management tool Basecamp to keep everyone in the loop.

You’ll also be enrolled into my Marketing Club which provides loads more help and advice on website planning, blogging and SEO.

Site content and wireframe

Content is the keystone for any site and we start by creating a basic text only version of the site to focus on utility. Throughout the project we evolve the content and design to best attract the right people to the site and help them take the actions they need.

We also talk through Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), photography and video. And, if required, recommend specialists to create this for you.

Development

Our collaborative and fluid development process encourages the ideas and concepts that best present your business to your customer, so you get more downloads, leads and sales. We guide you through the entire project as the site comes together.

All our websites are built in WordPress, it’s incredible flexible and easy to use with minimal training. Over 30% of the worlds websites run-on WordPress.

Site testing and review

We review and approve the draft site, test it and fix anything before launch. I handle all of the technical stuff with domains and hosting to make the transfer seamless.

Finally we’ll discuss future goals and marketing strategy, as well as providing the training you need to confidently manage your new website.

Organise a website briefing call with me to chat through your ideas.

Common questions

How long does it take to build the website?

Most of the sites I’ve built take as little as a few weeks to three months depending on the size and complexity of the project.

How much does it cost to build a website?

Prices start at £350 for a template based site and then rise depending on the complexity. I’ll provide a quote before we start so there are no surprises.

What Content Management System (CMS) do you use?

I build websites in WordPress because it’s incredibly flexible. It also powers over 30% of the world’s websites, so there is no shortage of talented developers if you ever wanted to move away from us.

What do I get with my website hosting?

Fast UK servers with on the fly image compression. SSL encryption plus a daily backup should the worst happen, plus friendly email support.

How difficult is it to build my own website?

With a modern Content Management Systems (CMS) like WordPress, Squarespace or Wix it’s very easy. What can be difficult is writing the best words and finding the right images to make your business shine. I can help you focus on what’s important and provide a sounding board for your ideas.

Can I call you if I need help?

Generally you can only email me in-between our scheduled calls. However I understand that sometimes it’s important to discuss things quickly so let me know by email and we can arrange a quick phone call.

If I start with a self build, can I change my mind and ask you to build the site?

Yes. If you have only had the planning call then you just need to pay the extra cost and I’ll take over from there. If you have past this then there may be extra costs to re-do previous stages. Just ask and I can let you know the costs involved.

Can I use a different hosting company?

If you chose my video tutorial you can build your WordPress site using any hosting company you like. If I build the site for you then I’ll use my trusted hosting setup.

Do I need to know how to code to build a website?

No you don’t . Most website can be designed by adding block components to your pages. these could be: headings, text, images, quotes, video or event a gallery. It’s all straightforward and I’ll give you full training on how to update your content

Can I get a refund if I don’t like the website?

No. However if you cancel the project before the first planning call, I’ll and give you a full refund

Book a 30 website briefing Zoom call

Arrange a call with me to chat over your ideas, hopes and dreams. I’ll let you know what I can, or cannot do and most importantly give you an estimate of the cost.
