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:

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: (5/5)

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: (5/5)

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!

WordPress DevelopmentWordPress

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: (5/5)

Want bespoke web design or WordPress development?

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: (5/5)

UK Small Business Website Design

NHS Staff Discounts NewportBeing 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.

    It is a pleasure dealing with a pro­fes­sional with a high degree of tech­nical skill allied to a ‘can do’ pos­itive attitude. Your ability to explain tech­nical con­cepts in layman’s lan­guage is also a great advantage. I would have no hes­it­ation in recom­mending your services.

    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.
