Affordable Web Design For Small Business
Cost-effective Small Business Website Design Packages
Are you a startup or small business seeking affordable web design? Great! I’ve helped firms like yours grow online since 1997 (freelance since 2005). So, unlike most cheap web design, these small business web design packages focus on results and ongoing digital marketing support. Because being online is not the same as competing online.
What does that mean? It means my experience can reduce your business risks.
Peter’s expertise is exactly what I needed… I could not run my website without him. — Sue B‑E. Web Design:
Affordable Web Design Packages
These are SEO-focused, multi-page editable website packages, as that’s what most small firms need (here’s why). If you’d rather leave site updates to me though, you may prefer my basic static site package.
Sole Trader & Startup Web Design
Cashflow is often critical for UK microbusinesses like sole traders and self-funded startups, So the setup payments for these solutions are spread across several months. It’s also worth noting that I don’t charge VAT, and such business investments are partly offset by reductions in your tax burden. So these specially-configured packages normally pay for themselves many times over.
Too busy right now? That’s no reason to delay. Distractions will keep cropping up until you commit, but these payment plans let me work around your schedule. So pick a plan or book a callback, and let’s get you on the road to success!

Award Winning Small Business Website Design & Support Services
Why Are Editable Websites More Affordable?
Because successful small businesses evolve to meet the changing needs of their target audience. So small business websites often need content updates. Editable sites let you do those updates without learning to code, or having to pay a web designer for basic text and image changes. They can also offer far more advanced features than the alternative (aka “static” websites).
Besides, editable sites can give you a structure to fit content into, making content creation far easier. It’s also less stressful knowing that not only will it not go public until you’re ready, but that you’ll still be able to change it easily after that.
Who Are These Affordable Web Design Packages For?
These are starter website packages for small business. So they offer bootstrapped microbusinesses the best possible start online on a tight budget. That makes them ideal for self-funded sole traders, partnerships and other firms with only a few staff.
Larger firms need more advanced solutions. So do projects that aim to implement specific, unique processes. Still, I’ve been building all sorts of sites since 1996, So if you do need bespoke web development, please get in touch.
Why Web Design For Small Businesses?
Because I care about your success. I’ve seen the common mistakes that catch out many sole traders and other small businesses, and can help you avoid them.
Small firms sometimes think these afffordable website design packages mean I’m a large agency, or outsourcing affordable website design to offshore services. In fact, I’m a sole trader, just like many of my clients — and maybe you. So unlike agency staff, I understand the struggles faced by sole traders and small startups, and have specialised in helping folks like you through them for over 18 years.
Not Just Cheap Web Design
Still, with almost two billion sites online, you’ll need more than just a cheap, pretty website to succeed. That’s why these small business web design packages focus on providing real, ROI-generating value — not just cheap web design.
So yes, they include mobile-friendly, responsive web design, SSL security and great on-site SEO as standard. Beyond that, I can also help with content creation and logos if needed, as well as helping you maintain and promote your site.
Excellent and professional work from beginning to end. Pete was open to ideas and able to make suggestions on how to develop my site. — Lisa P. Web Design:
Which Affordable Website Design Package Is Best?
The best small business website design package really depends on how your business operates.
- Do you need an online shop, with a shopping cart and a catalogue of products? Pick the Ecommerce package.
- The Marketing website package suits most other small businesses. It’s great for showcasing your expertise and for SEO. Being expandable and flexible, it can grow with your business, too. Want a booking system? A blog or news page? Members-only content? Then you need a Marketing site.
- Brochure websites need paid ads or offline advertising like mobile signage. So these can suit local businesses and trades like builders, roofers, electricians, plumbers and so on. Still, Marketing sites are better for project portfolios.
Still, if your business goals are a bit more advanced, just tell me about your project and we’ll go from there.
Why Small Business Website Design Matters
You can’t even test a business idea without visitors. Search engines don’t rank sites on their looks. So I build a lot of small business SEO into these packages.
Small business web design also needs ongoing support. Why? Because the web evolves rapidly. Competition grows fast. So do cyber threats and regulation. Sadly, cheap web designers often disappear, leaving their clients struggling.
These affordable small business website design packages fix all that. They offer the quality you need, backed by decades of experience.
Planning Your First Small Business Website?
Not sure you’re ready to talk web design yet? Then let’s talk business. I’ve been helping small firms with more than just design and tech for many years. So the sooner we talk, the more I can help. Still, nothing costs more than missed chances. So don’t delay — let’s get started!
Ideas without action aren’t ideas. They’re regrets. — Steve Jobs

Can’t recommend him highly enough. He was extremely professional, laid out exactly what we needed to do and his role within that, setting expectations all round very clearly, and working within our budgetary constraints to set clear boundaries. He was extremely prompt and punctual in his responses and work. He was also extremely patient with his recommendations and explanations, which were clear and simple to follow.

Pete is one of the most creative, reliable, competent and ingenious people it has ever been my very great pleasure to work with. There is no problem he can’t find an ingenious and unexpected way out of, and he has a work ethic you could bend horseshoes around. I cannot recommend him highly enough for his breadth and depth of knowledge and his total commitment to whichever project he is currently undertaking.
DogLost is the UK’s largest community of pet owners and rescuers. Other developers have struggled to meet our needs, but since Peter rebuilt our site and support systems we have gone from strength to strength, winning major awards including the 2013 Innovation Award from the International Fund for Animal Welfare. We couldn’t have done that without him.
Cody’s Pet Deli is an online business that sells pet food & accessories. Approaching Pete to set up a new website was the best move I have made. We wanted a system that was easy to navigate and look good when customers shop online.Pete made the whole process simple and dealing with him was a great pleasure. He can’t do enough to help and solve any problem that may arise. I would highly recommend Pete for his experience and knowledge and total dedication to see the project through to final conclusion.Steve H.
