Web Design Cardiff / Newport / Bristol

Small Business Website Design in South Wales & the South West

Are you a small business owner seeking web design near Cardiff or Bristol? Then you’re in the right place! I’ve helped small firms across South Wales and the Southwest grow online since 2005 with:

South Wales Web Design

Web design is naturally remote work. So I’m based in Newport (Casnewydd), South Wales and mainly help firms across South Wales and Southwest England. As the UK has lots of towns called Newport though, locals often search for Cardiff web design instead.

I specialise in helping small firms — and have been doing so since 2005. So if you’re a sole trader, self-funded startup or other microbusiness (with under 10 employees), I’ve got the solutions you need.

A fantastic service! We are a small business just starting out with a new venture. Pete at Netcentrics has gone above and beyond to provide us with not only a fantastic website, but also invaluable business and marketing advice. The whole process has been incredibly positive and beyond what we expected compared to previous experiences. He is incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. His support did not stop at the end of the website build, he has continued to make himself available ensuring that we know how to maximise use of the website for our start up. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pete to anyone.— Ceri E. Web Design: (5/5)

Why Small Business Web Design in South Wales?

Small business website design 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 in a never-ending marketing race.

It takes more than polished paintwork to win that race. You’ll need decent engine, too. That means a quality website with SEO and other promotional features built in. So that’s what I provide.

Amazing, professional service and speedy communications. Very impressed and highly recommended. — Barbara H. Web Design: (5/5)

Affordable Small Business Website Design In South Wales

Startups and sole traders often want to design a basic website on a tight budget. Most are either information brochures, marketing hubs or 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: (5/5)

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 professional bespoke web design generally pays for itself.

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 underinvest in web design early on often find that has held their business back.

Then, many just rebuild from scratch — often losing whatever progress they have made. Professional website redesign takes steps to avoid that.

WordPress Development

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.

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)

Bespoke Web Development

Very specific or unusual systems may need 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 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.

Bespoke web development can easily take months, costing tens of thousands of pounds. So unbiased advice from a web developer who also provides standard solutions could easily save you a lot of time and money.

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.

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)

Supporting Those Who Support Others

NHS Staff Discounts NewportAs a long-term carer myself, I particularly appreciate our NHS. So I regularly offer discounts for NHS staff — and others in caring professions, too. That also includes 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.

    Pete has been patience personified, helping me to navigate a website I inherited for an event I am responsible for. But for him I would probably have broken the back end repeatedly.

    Pete has been incredibly helpful and supportive, above and beyond what was required. We're a tiny business, and from helping with the initial web design to SEO advice and inevitable tweaks and changes as the business develops, Pete has been patient and full of sage advice. We cannot recommend him more highly!

    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.

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.
