Website Design Cardiff / Newport / Bristol
Small Business Web Design In South Wales & the South West
Small business website design and development is very different from building personal sites. That’s because business websites need to compete.
So small business website design needs to focus on performance. Otherwise, looking pretty is pretty useless at the bottom of the search engines.
Likewise, the needs of startups and sole traders differ from those of more established firms. So, I provide a wide range of web design and development solutions:
- Affordable Small Business Websites from £500
- Professional Web Design and WordPress Development from £2.5k
- Bespoke Web Development from £10k
Why Choose Netcentrics.co.uk for Small Business Website Design?
I’ve been helping UK firms grow online since 1997, and set up Netcentrics.co.uk in 2005 to provide better support for startups and small firms. Competing online takes more than building a website. So my extensive experience lets me provide expert support and marketing services to help your small business succeed.
Amazing, professional service and speedy communications. Very impressed and highly recommended. — Barbara H. Web Design:
Simple Small Business Website Design
Small startups and sole traders often need fairly basic websites on a tight budget. Yet many waste money by buying on price and appearance alone. That’s how you get poor search rankings, poor sales and disappearing designers.
Still, most startup sites are either information brochures, marketing hubs ore ecommerce sites. So I’ve created three affordable web design packages to cover these. However, these packages focus on providing the business-critical details that cheap web designers often skip to cut costs.
Business-critical details like what? Like SEO, security, mobile-friendly “responsive” web design and site stats. Because prioritising performance reduces risk.
Peter’s expertise is exactly what I needed. When I have ideas Pete makes them work. I could not run my website without him. — Sue B‑E. Web Design:

Professional Web Design & WordPress Development
Whilst looks aren’t everything, they do matter. That’s because design templates aren’t always the best fit for your target audience. Design that appeals more to your niche boosts sales. So bespoke web design pays for itself.
Similarly, sometimes you need advanced features. The range of sites possible through professional web design is almost unlimited, including:
- Advanced ecommerce — including drop-shipping, print-on-demand, virtual goods, affiliate systems, auctions, real estate etc.
- Membership sites — members-only content, forums, social networks and so on
- Booking systems — appointments, events, webinars, courses and more
- Business apps — helpdesks, CRMs, project management, invoicing, marketing and other internal automations
- Learning management Systems
- Surveys & polls
… and lots more. There really are too many options to list!
Over 40% of all websites now run on WordPress, and it’s WooCommerce plugin runs over 8% of all ecommerce sites. No other system comes close to that — with good reason. WordPress is by far the most flexible way to build a website.
That’s because WordPress plugins exist to address almost every common requirement. That includes fixing omissions from the basic installation that competitors like to pretend are flaws.
Developing with flexible components can easily save months of time and thousands in development costs. So whilst WordPress development isn’t right for every project, it’s worth exporing properly before deciding on bespoke coding.
Safer Website Planning & Pricing
Professional web design has too many variables to cover with simple packages. It also doesn’t help much to write a brief based on assumptions. So I offer a risk-reducing advance consultation for such projects. Here’s how that works:
- Call me — or book a free call back. If you only need a simple site, I’ll be happy to confirm that.
- Otherwise, I’ll offer an optional “Discovery” phase to investigate your goals in more detail.
- If you decide to proceed, the Discovery fee reduces the project price. So it’s effectively free.
This process means you get better plans, lower risk and a lower implementation cost — and I get a happier client.
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. Web Design:

Bespoke Web Development
Highly specific or unusual goals sometimes need solutions designed and coded from scratch. That takes programming skills that many web designers simply don’t develop. Still, whilst bespoke web development takes time, it can build almost any system you can imagine.
However, specialist web developers will often try to sell you bespoke web development even if cost-effective solutions exist. So unbiased advice from a web developer who also provides those other solutions could save you months of development time and many thousands of pounds.
So that’s what I offer — unbiased advice about your options, plus bespoke web development if you do need it.
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. — Jayne H. Bespoke Web Development:

UK Small Business Website Design
Being based in Newport, South Wales, I’m well placed to offer small business web design in Cardiff and Bristol, too. Still, web design is naturally remote work. So I also help firms throughout South Wales, Southwest England, and across the UK. That’s easier than ever, now that video meetings are the norm.
Whilst some clients provide local services, others run national or international organisations. Some are bricks-and-mortar businesses, whilst others provide services and trade entirely online. So whether you’re a startup or an established business, a microbusiness, or a small firm with a few dozen employees, get in touch to see how I can help.

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. Excellent value for us as a charity. We’re very grateful to him — he was a real pleasure to work with.
