I don't just build websites.
Hi! I’m Matt
Building websites is great fun. But building great relationships with my customers is better.
I could say I go the extra mile and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for my customers but then how would that make me different to the one million other web designers out there. It wouldn’t would it?
What makes me unique, is that I’ve been there and done most things IT over my 25 year career. My primary job is an IT Manager for a manufacturing company so not only do I come with a web design skill set but also all the technical expertise built up over my working life.
I can talk on a technical level or if you are not so IT literate, explain things in a way you’ll understand.
All of this helps build confidence quickly with customers and sets the foundations for a mutually beneficial relationship spanning years not weeks.
How does this web design magic work?
It will all start with a brief meeting, either in person or by phone. This is where I’ll ask you to describe what you want to achieve. As we go, I’ll offer suggestions and answer any questions you may have. By the end of this stage, I’ll understand your requirements and go away and produce you a quotation. I offer the full range of web design solutions starting from the most basic personal site, right through to full e-commerce solutions. Everything can be tailored to your requirements.
If you choose to proceed, then we start on our journey together!
I’ll go away and create the basic structure and layout of the site using the information you’ve provided me. At the same time, you should prepare and send me any pictures, text or other relevent content you would like including. If you haven’t given me specific colours to use, I’ll suggest some and send you across a colour pallette to authorise.
Once I’m ready to unveil, I’ll send you a link to the site (which at this stage is password protected) so you can have a look and give feedback. This fine tuning stage can take as long as necessary. Once we are 100% happy then the website will be made live to the world. Even at this stage, there may be further tweaks to make and this is a normal part of a website build.
All designs are bespoke not templates. You won’t find an identical looking site with different content anywhere on the internet.
.uk Domain Included
All sites include one .uk domain name free for a year.
Once I complete the initial design of the site, we can tweak and change it as many times as you require. If you don’t like the design, I’ll start all over again.
