Static Websites

Don’t want to have to edit your site? Then you may need a non-editable website, also known as a static website.

Whilst pro­fes­sional design or affordable website packages are best for most startups and small busi­nesses, some don’t need that flex­ib­ility. Learning to use a Content Management System (CMS) just to get some basic inform­ation online can seem like a hassle, too.

So if your business doesn’t change much, and you don’t expect search engines to be a key traffic source, you may prefer a static site.

Why Choose A Static Website?

Small busi­nesses often choose static web­sites for the wrong reasons. So let’s be clear on a few things:

  • Static web­sites are not cheaper or easier to build than editable ones
  • Customers and search engines prefer sites that are kept up to date
  • Editable sites can support more powerful features
  • I can help with edits on either type of site

In fact, the main benefit of static web­sites is that they can use simpler hosting. They also don’t need fre­quent backups or software updates to stay secure.

So if you really don’t think you’ll need to update your site much over time, these static website packages can help to keep monthly costs down. Otherwise, choose pro­fes­sional design to max­imise flex­ib­ility, or an affordable website package for your best options on a limited budget.

The Basic Static Site Package

Static sites tend to be “bro­chure” sites, as they can’t easily support things like blogs or eco­m­merce. So the static sites I build all include:
  • Up to 5 pages1
  • Mobile-friendly “responsive” design
  • Lead Capture/Contact form
  • Stock images
  • Legal com­pliance help2
  • Social Media Marketing tools & guides
  • Site stats setup (optional)
  • Basic SEO features
  • SSL security

1 Base package — extra pages from £75 each
2 FREE integ­ration of recom­mended legal solutions

Most sites have Home, About and Contact pages, plus one page for each of the main products or ser­vices on offer. So to keep things simple, I offer a basic package cov­ering up to five pages. If you need more, we can build up from there.
