Is Your Website aligned to Your Business Goals?

Is your website working hard for your business?
Does it give a professional impression of your business?
Is your website truly responsive on all screens?

Despite having been in business for a while, maybe your website is not performing as effectively as you had hoped. You might even hesitate before directing potential clients to your website because it doesn’t convey the desired impression or accurately represent your business.

It’s time to take action and address these issues. Your website should function as your most diligent employee, tirelessly promoting and securing new clients around the clock. It should be able to demonstrate to potential clients the reasons why they should choose your business.

Are you ready to take your business to the next level?

Let’s work together to get your website working smarter and achieving greater success.

Your website is your virtual shop window, showcasing your services or products, and representing your business 24/7. It needs to look professional and provide the answers to whatever your customers are expecting to find on your site.

With my experience in website building, I know what elements to incorporate and how to create a user-friendly layout that will leave a lasting impression on visitors and encourage them to take specific action whether it be sending an enquiry, scheduling an appointment or booking a call.

I start by asking lots of questions to get an understanding of your business, your target audience, and exactly what you want your website to achieve. Then I can begin to design a website that not only looks great and works smoothly, but most importantly, will attract your target customers.

Fantastic business

I can not recommend Anne highly enough. If it wasn’t for Anne we wouldn’t have been able to trade during the pandemic. Within a day we had a full stock list on the website for deliveries. Then Anne was able to build an online appointment system that has worked amazingly and kept a steady stream into our garden centre so social distancing was easy.
Afford Web Design is a fantastic business and Anne is amazing.”

WordPress is my preferred platform for website development because it offers superior SEO capabilities, plus the flexibility to scale and adapt as your business grows or changes over time.

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ’s

My expertise lies in building websites for a wide range of product and service-based businesses. I have successfully built websites for various industries, including agriculture, construction, food and beverage, transportation, community organizations, healthcare, hospitality, project management, mental health, wellness, and more. You can check out my portfolio to see examples of the websites I have built.

A web designer is someone who designs how a website looks, including its colors, fonts, and images. They want the website to be attractive and easy for people to use.

On the other hand, a web developer is responsible for the technical side of a website. They write the code that makes the website work and create features like forms or interactive elements.

To summarize, web designers focus on the appearance of a website, while web developers focus on making it function properly. Sometimes, one person can do both jobs as I can at Afford Web Design, but in bigger companies, these roles are usually separate.

To ensure that your website is tailored to your target audience and reflects your unique style and preferences, I will be sending you a comprehensive questionnaire.

I would also require your visual branding elements such as colours, font, and logo, as well as any specific images, content and text you wish to include on the site. Additionally, please feel free to provide examples of other websites that you find appealing or unappealing, as they can serve as a valuable sources of inspiration.

Yes I can help with your branding to elevate your business standing.

The main benefits of having a website:

  • Give you an online presence 24/7
  • Quick and easy way to provide information 
  • Increased credibility for a business
  • Cost effective way to display your business information
  • Markets your business to a larger area than a static office/ shop
  • Can provide you with insights on your customers
  • An online advert for your business
  • Keeps your business in line with your competitors
  • You can handle customer service online

I send out a detailed questionnaire before starting any website, to get an understanding of you, your business and your intended audience.

Following this, I will present a draft design and await your feedback. You can then comment on this starting  design, indicate the aspects you appreciate and those you do not, as well as any additional requirements you may have. I will then modify the design accordingly. Up to three revisions are permitted, and the website creation process is a collaborative effort.

My ultimate goal is to deliver a website that you are satisfied with, and that caters to your target audience. While we may not always get it right on the first try, we usually come quite close. 

Every website project is custom built for each business, and the length of time to complete your project depends on your requirements. I will estimate the timescale in your initial proposal but these timescales are dependent on speedy responses from the client to any queries or to agree a proposed mock-up design. 

A standard time would be 4 – 6 weeks to complete a website. With more complex websites or an ecommerce shop with many detailed products may take 2 months or more. 

How much information you can provide during the initial stages, your feedback, and how quickly any content is provided – all this affects the speed of completing your website. The functionality and revisions required will also play a role in your timeline.

Yes of course. All we ask is the right to use screenshots and a description of your site in our work portfolio.

One things for certain, all websites need to be maintained because WordPress and the plugins used on a website are continually being updated with new versions released to keep everything secure.

You have a choice either you can maintain your own website or I can do it for you. You can contact me whenever you need updates to your website and I’ll charge on an hourly basis to complete your requests.

As soon as you accept your website proposal and you make the 30% initial payment, I can schedule in the work.
For Website Designs there may be a lead in time, but I will have informed you of this in the initial quote. And during this time you can get all the necessary information together.

For Social Media Marketing & SEO services, these can start within a week or two, once I have all the necessary information.

I can rebuild your website in WordPress, transferring your existing content onto the new platform if required. Or I can update it on Wix if you prefer.

I have a process for our services, which I find works well.

First I need to find out more about you and your business, so I can better understand what you do and your requirements. The more I understand what your business offers, the better.

Then I research and plan your site. Research on your industry, best keywords, your competitors etc.. Then I start to plan the design of the website.

Next I design and build the site to include any features required starting with the front page design. I’ll send you the mockup of the front page for your comments and  make any changes.

Then I start on the inner pages including the necessary functionalities eg enquiry form, content management system, shopping cart, etc..

Then I’ll test the website thoroughly to ensure that it is error-free and ask you to look through the site.

Once you are happy with everything and the final payment made, the website ‘goes live’ online.

I do not outsource any of my development work to third parties. I will be developing your site or working on your website.

Yes of course. I have clients local to Bury St Edmunds and further afield.

I am happy to talk to clients face-to-face, on the phone or by zoom if you prefer.

Yes of course I can work with you on an eCommerce site.

I work with Woocommerce platform for online shops, to include integration with popular payment providers such as PayPal, Stripe etc..

Payment for new websites and redesigned websites are in 2 parts, 30% to secure your start date and the final payment before the site goes live.

Payments for other work will be advised at our first conversation.

If you need work done quickly, contact me about it.

I can help if you need to revamp your existing website or start afresh with a new website. I can work on design and front-end development to sort out issues with your site or to improve it.

If you need work done quickly, contact me about it.

Firstly, we arrange a convenient time to speak so that I can get to know what you want from a new website and to start to understand what your business and how it works. This stage is very important for us both to identify what we want to achieve from the site.

I will then send you a quote, a timescale for the build and times when payments are required. If this is acceptable, I will email you a contract to be signed before I proceed.

Then I will send you a questionnaire about you and your business and all your contact details.

I will send be in contact during the build to ask questions, show you mockup and make suggestions.

Please response promptly so as not to delay the the build and when your site go live.

Depending on the size of the website, aim to get your site live within one month. 

Your website will be live on the Internet, once the final payment has cleared.

Yes I only build WordPress websites. If someone asks me to work on an existing site that is on Wix or another platform, I can do the work. But I build websites on WordPress.

Why? Because WordPress is the best content management system and it’s used by more than 40% of the websites worldwide.
