working with us

how we work | benefits for you

We always do "the groundwork"...

We start by talking to you about your business, so that we understand the essentials for a successful website. That means discussing:

- Your business model
- Your customers (the ones you have & the ones you want)
- What you want to achieve, from the business and the website

We know that "no project is an island", so we make sure we understand:

- Your 'must-haves' (like logos & colours, for example)
- A time frame for the project

Then we set out the ideal "customer journey" through the website for your customers, with your objectives in mind, and use it as the basis for whatever work we do

Working this way means together we're always focused on the results and their benefits for your business

web design

new websites | refreshing your website

We start by talking to you to understand your business

When we've done "the groundwork", we mock up a site for you - so you know what your site will look like, the pages it will have, how it will work - and most importantly, how your website visitors will become your customers

With that agreed, we go away & build the site, whilst ensuring we maximise its potential for visibility on search engines. And keeping you up to date with progress along the way

The end result is a website that does exactly what your business needs

What does it cost?

WillsonWebDesign has a transparent approach to costs, charging a flat hourly rate. We agree with you the time required in advance

To give you a guide, a new, simple website (say, 5 pages where you supply all the words & pictures) starts from around £600. An online shop will cost more, the final cost depending on how many products you sell

Refreshing your existing website starts from £400

Putting a blog into your existing website starts from £150

search engine optimisation

one-off optimisation | ongoing management

It starts with talking to you about your business and you, and what you want to achieve

Then we research how people use search engines in relation to your industry & business. The research gives us words & phrases to which your site should be optimised

Ranking high on search engines depends on two factors:

- On-site factors, including a site that the search engines can read properly; having the right words & phrases in the right places on page; and a good site structure

- Off-site factors, including (most importantly) inward links from other websites; plus a site that is submitted & sitemapped by the search engines

We show you what we recommend to optimise the site towards, and when it's agreed we go ahead with the changes to your site

We also give you our recommendations for attracting the all-important links to your site - such as including a blog; using Twitter; or writing industry-related 'How-To' content. You can do it yourself, or we can work out a cost for helping you with it

We can do Search Engine Optimisation just once - we call it a "Search Engine Foundation" - and you can carry on optimising the site yourself as time goes by (using the guide we supply you with to help)

We can work with you on an ongoing basis - we call it "Search Engine Management" - spending time each month to investigate search trends, update the site & continue to develop the all-important inward links

Either way, the end result is Search Engine Optimisation that does exactly what your business needs

What does it cost?

WillsonWebDesign has a transparent approach to costs, charging a flat hourly rate. We agree with you the time required in advance. To give you a guide to costs:

Search Engine Foundation for a simple site costs £150, and includes essential changes to your site plus a guide for you to work with in the future

Search Engine Foundation for an eCommerce or dynamic site costs from £400, and it's worth getting in touch so we can discuss your specific needs & work out the cost

Search Engine Management, usually taking 2-3 hours a month, starts from £100 a month

online marketing

get new customers | build reputation

We begin by talking to you about your business and what you want to achieve

After doing "the groundwork", we look at all the options for bringing you new customers, and making your existing customers more profitable

We explain how blogs will develop your professional reputation and demonstrate to your site visitors that you're an active business with relevant expertise

We show you how Twitter can both promote your business & update your website every day

We demonstrate how sites like Flickr can help distribute visual examples of your work to potential customers, locally and around the world

We tell you how email newsletters can keep bringing customers back to your business time after time

What does it cost?

Putting a blog on your existing site costs from £150

Showing your Twitter or Flickr feed on your site can be from £50 to £100 (depending on how your website is set up)

Creating a newsletter costs from £200, including creating a branded template on an established mailing service
