Bespoke Websites

Are you looking for a new website?  

Is your existing website just not doing what it should?  Are you embarrassed by it?  Maybe it is looking tired and dated.  Maybe you built it yourself when you first started out and it’s not as polished as you would like.  Or maybe it is just not getting you the customers.  

Or maybe you don’t have a website, yet.  But you can’t afford the eye-watering fees that the big agencies charge and you don’t have the time or skill to do it yourself?  Just where do you start?

Would you like a gorgeous website that will bring in customers whilst you sleep?  One you are proud to show off?  One that gives the “right” impression of your business to the kind of customers you want (and other nosey parkers too)?  One that shows some personality?  One that gives you more customers with less effort?

We can help.

We create stunning websites, marrying good design with the right functionality.  A website is the “shop window” of your business and the website design needs to reflect the personality of your brand.  A good website shows your business in the best light and is easy to navigate, making customers more likely to do business with you.

“I had a clear vision for how I wanted my new website. I needed someone who understood not only the tech side but also the sales journey. Marie listened to exactly what I needed, helped me overcome various challenges and went above and beyond to deliver a website I absolutely love!”

Why Us?

Website designer Marie Brown Sevenoaks Kent

We’re not your typical website design agency.  

We look different and we have a different approach.

Building websites that work to get more customers is not just about technical skills anymore (anyone can build a website).  It is about understanding the sales journey your “ideal customers” take to nudge them into working with you rather than others…

We start by getting to understand your business – what you do, who you do it for and what you want people to do when they visit your website.    

We know you don’t build websites everyday.  We do.  But we’ll talk to you in language you understand and hold your hand through the whole process of building your website.  So you end up with a website you LOVE and can’t wait to show off, as well as bringing in more customers with less effort.

 

As a start up micro business I had no idea where to begin – Marie has held my hand through the whole process, answered all my daft questions with patience and has been hugely supportive. I now have a clear idea of my goals and a wonderful website. Thank you Marie – I couldn’t have done it without you!

What Does it Cost?

We don’t believe in subjecting you to the full sales pitch in order to understand what we would charge you for a website.  Your time (and ours) is valuable…

All our websites are built using WordPress, they are fully “responsive” (which means they will look good on mobile as well as desktop), give you full ownership of the website once you have paid for it in full and are designed to be easy for you to update.

The price for a “standard” website is £900

This includes:

  • an initial zoom call to understand your business
  • up to 5 website pages (eg home, about, contact and two services pages)
  • a blog page and a blog post template (if you don’t want a blog we can add an extra website page instead)
  • up to 3 legal pages (please note we will provide the text for the cookies page but you must provide the text for the others)
  • “standard” functionality*
  • a zoom call midway through the design/build process so we can chat through where we are with the website (don’t worry you will have other opportunities to provide feedback/revisions)
  • full training on how to edit text and images on your website and add blog posts (via a recorded zoom call and written instructions too)

Additional pages can be added for £60/page

This assumes you provide all the content (text, images, videos, etc), but we will guide you as to what is needed/useful

The price excludes the cost of a domain name (that’s the website address – these are usually no more than £10 for the year) and it excludes website hosting.  Hosting is space on a computer server where your website code sits.  We use and recommend Siteground for hosting.  You can buy your own hosting or we offer a maintenance plan which includes hosting, regular backups of your website and technical updates.

* standard functionality includes text, images, video and links (including social media links, links to booking systems like Calendly or Acuity Scheduling, etc) – and is enough for most of the websites we build.  Payment /shop functionality, email signup/integration with your email marketing, memberships, courses, a map and contact form have a small additional charge.

If you have an existing wordpress website we can copy across your existing website, work on the copy and transfer it back so your existing website remains live during the build phase.

The whole build process usually takes 6 – 8 weeks

We also offer a “VIP” service for £2,500

This includes everything in the standard package plus:

  • branding photography within 5 miles of Sevenoaks
  • stock photography for use as “filler” images
  • copywriting for 5 pages
  • 12 months of website maintenance
  • website build in 2 weeks

Marie really understood what we were after & brought our ideas to life. Now, we get enquiries & make sales through the website every week.

If you want a website that does your business justice (without breaking the bank), you definitely need to chat to Marie!

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to provide?

We will send you a questionnaire to complete, but we need details of your visual branding (colours, font, logo), images you want to use, copy and other websites you like/don’t like as inspiration

I don’t have branding/want to change my branding, can you do this for me?

Yes.  We have a branding package available for an additional fee

I’m not sure what to write.  Are you able to write the copy for me?

The best person to write the content for a website is YOU!  You know your business better than anyone else and the impression you want to convey.  But we have experienced copywriters who can edit and polish the content for you, if needed, for an additional fee (or they can write it for you if you really don’t want to do it at all).

What is the process and how much time will it take?

We aim to provide a couple of versions of two pages of your website within 10 working days of you providing all the associated content.  Once we have agreed those two pages we will build out the other pages.  How long it takes overall depends upon how many edits you want and how long it takes to get copy/changes to us.  It can be completed in 3 – 5 weeks but typically it takes 6 – 8 weeks.

Will you get my website onto page 1 of Google?

Getting onto page 1 of Google is about more than just the design of your website.  The competitiveness of any keywords, content and backlinks also play a big part.  

Can you provide website hosting?

Yes, we offer a “maintenance package” for websites that we build which costs £20/month.  This includes hosting, weekly backups and technical updates.

What does it cost?

See packages above.
