Small Business Website Design Near Cardiff, South Wales
Are you a small business in Cardiff, Caerphilly or the Vale of Glamorgan? Or are you planning to start one? Then you need Cardiff web design!
It’s not just a case of getting online any more. Yes, that’s where your customers are — now more than ever. However, the era of “build it and they will come” ended over twenty years ago — and in recent years, the world has become even more competitive.
So businesses in Cardiff and across South Wales need a proper business web presence. Not just a website that sits at the bottom of the search results looking pretty if anyone ever sees it. Amateur design may be good enough for personal websites — but business websites need to compete. So you need a web site and strategy that promotes your business. That’s why I offer “Cardiff web design, SEO and more…”
Based in Newport, South Wales, I’m well placed to offer web design from Cardiff to Bristol and beyond. Whilst I can help companies from any region, I mostly focus on small businesses across South Wales, from Swansea, across the Vale of Glamorgan, to Monmouthshire and the Southwest.
Since 2005, I’ve been helping SMEs, startups and charities across South Wales make the most of the web, with design, development, SEO, social media and other digital marketing services. The list of services I can offer is quite long, so I’ve bundled up a lot of the options into my highly flexible “SEO Plus” digital marketing plans.
Cardiff Web Design Services
Website Design & Web Development
If you just want a website, I’ll help you get the most out of one. As standard, the websites I build are user-friendly, mobile friendly (“responsive”), search engine friendly, with extra security built in. Whether you need a simple affordable website, or the bespoke web design and advanced features offered by professional web design, I can help!
Looking for an online shop, paid membership site or some other form of ecommerce? I can help with those, too – and also offer bespoke web development (coding). So I can create custom web apps like bespoke forums and resource management systems.
Safer Web Design Pricing & Planning
Small businesses need cost-effective web design services, but often waste money on the wrong solution. That’s understandable, because online marketing is quite technical. So amateurs and unscrupulous marketers spread a lot of hype. Still, that only increases the risks faced by small businesses in Cardiff and South Wales. So you need professional, trustworthy advice before you commit, so my web design pricing and planning process provides that.
Web Hosting & Domains
Your website needs a place to live, with a decent web address. It also needs to be secure. As online threats are constantly evolving, that needs regular work on your site, as well as the server, that most hosting companies don’t offer. I provide that essential maintenance as standard, along with lots of other extra benefits in my “Hosting Plus” plans.
Small Business Website Maintenance & Support
Whilst editable CMS websites let you keep your website’s content fresh yourself, every small business website needs professional support. Why? Because everything evolves. Competitors compete. Marketing trends change. Even the technology your website is built on change quite rapidly — and hackers’ tactics do, too.
In fact, most editable websites need several software updates a month just to keep them secure. Yet most small business websites don’t get them, because cheap web designers often disappear. So small businesses — who often think they’re “too small” for hackers to care about — are actually a key target for cyber attacks.
That’s why I offer flexible maintenance options to cover a wide range of situations.
Small Business SEO & Digital Marketing In Wales
SEO Plus — Digital Marketing Plans
Effective SEO is a great way to build your business. However, it’s a long-term investment and what small businesses often really need is a flexible, cost-effective digital marketing strategy. So that’s what my “SEO Plus” plans are. They’re built around solid small business SEO techniques as a default, but also cover other digital marketing tactics including press releases, infographics and video marketing.
Social Media Marketing
Social media channels can be great sources of visitors for your website. Still, keeping them active is time-consuming. It’s also easy to alienate audiences with too many ads. Posting other stuff doesn’t feel like marketing, but that’s the point. The trust-building, social small talk posts are what let your ads work. My Social Media Marketing (SMM) services can help to fill in the small talk, saving you hours of distractions each week.
Content Writing & Video Marketing
Great content is what really attracts website visitors — especially in video form. It’s often one of the hardest things to get right. So I provide copy writing, infographics and simple video creation services. I can also offer video personalised video ads that mention the viewer’s location and name for a huge engagement boost.
As I offer web design for Cardiff and South Wales, you may wonder if I can create websites in Welsh. Well, I can help you get a “.wales” or “.cymru” domain name, and build multi-lingual websites. However, despite being Welsh (and knowing quite a few computer languages), I’m not a Welsh speaker. So whilst I can build you a website in Welsh — or most other languages — you’d need to provide a version of the text in Welsh, or translate copy that I provide.
