Website Design Cardiff / Newport / Bristol
Small Business Web Design In South Wales & the South West
Do you own a small business in South Wales or the South West? Are you looking for small business website design near Cardiff or Bristol? Then you’re in the right place! Based in Newport, I’ve helped UK small businesses grow online since 2005 with:
- Affordable Small Business Websites
- Professional Web Design and WordPress Development
- Bespoke Web Development
Why Small Business Website Design?
Small business website design and development is very different from building personal sites. Why? Because business websites need to compete.
That means small business website design needs to focus on performance. Otherwise, looking pretty is pretty useless on page ten of Google. Small business websites are business-critical marketing vehicles. So yours will need a decent engine, not just polished paintwork. That’s what you’ll find here.
Amazing, professional service and speedy communications. Very impressed and highly recommended. — Barbara H. Web Design:
Affordable Small Business Website Design
Need affordable web design?
Startups and sole traders often want to design a basic website on a tight budget. Most are either information brochures, marketing hubs ore ecommerce sites. So I’ve created three affordable web design packages to cover these common requirements.
Prioritising performance reduces risk. So these starter website packages also cover business-critical details that amateur or DIY web design often overlooks, and cheap web designers often skip to cut costs. Those include SEO, security, editable pages, mobile-friendly “responsive” web design and site stats.
Designed with self-funded startups in mind, these affordbable websites offer a hidden bonus, too. With many years of experience, I can offer a lot of help and advice on all aspects of online marketing. So I don’t just build websites — I help folks build businesses.
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, Website Redesign & WordPress Development
Whilst looks aren’t everything, they do matter. Design that appeals more to your specific target audience boosts sales. So bespoke web design generally pays for itself. At least, professional bespoke web design does. Even the prettiest custom website won’t help if it overlooks the other vital performance factors.
That’s why website redesigns are so popular. It’s not just that visual trends and marketing strategies evolve. It’s because small firms who start out by trying to cut costs on professional web design realise their cheap website has actually held their business back.
That’s often because they hired a designer with no business experience. Graphic design courses and web design tools don’t teach them what small firms really need. Nor do most web design courses, for that matter.
So once they realise their mistake, many small firms rebuild from scratch — often losing whatever progress they have made. Professional website redesign takes steps to avoid that.
Need something special?
Sometimes you need more advanced features than simple small business websites provide. Professional web design and WordPress development can include:
- Advanced ecommerce — including drop-shipping, print-on-demand, virtual goods, affiliate systems, auctions, real estate etc.
- Membership websites — members-only content, forums, social networks etc.
- Booking systems — appointments, events, webinars and courses
… and too many other options to list! WordPress offers plugins for almost every common need. That saves lots of time and development costs.
In fact, over 40% of all websites and 8% of all ecommerce sites run on WordPress. No other system comes close. WordPress development is simply the most flexible, cost-effective way to build small business websites.
Safer Website Planning & Pricing
Professional web design has too many variables to cover with simple packages. 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
Need something unique?
Very specific or unusual systems may need to be coded from scratch. Many web designers simply don’t develop those programming skills. Still, whilst bespoke web development takes time, it can build almost any system you can imagine.
However, specialist web developers often sell bespoke web development even if simpler solutions exist. So they’ll build you a blog or ecommerce system from scratch, then charge you for reinventing the wheel. Unbiased advice from a web developer who also provides standard solutions could easily save you months of web development time and many thousands of pounds.
So I offer bespoke web development if you need it. Whilst I’ve been programming for decades, and have developed several large, unique and complex web apps from scratch, I’m focused on your business success. So if there’s a simpler solution, I’ll offer that. If not, my safer pricing process will help us explore your options cost-effectively.
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
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 help firms across South Wales, Southwest England, and the UK. That’s easier than ever, now video meetings are the norm.
As a long-term carer myself, I particularly appreciate our NHS, so regularly offer discounts for NHS staff and others in caring professions, too. That includes teachers and those who care for animals and the environment.
More generally though, I specialise in helping small firms grow online. So whether you’re a startup or an established business, a microbusiness, small firm or registered charity, 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.
