Why choose a freelance web designer?

A freelance web designer offers you high quality websites with a more personal service and offers great value for money compared to an agency.

What areas do you cover?

I am able to work remotely with clients and small businesses all over the UK.

How long does it take to build a website?

Websites can take anywhere from a couple of days for a simple one page design up to a few months for a complex site. The average time for my recent projects has been around two weeks.

How much does a website cost?

It depends on experience, but on average a quality freelance web designer charges around £50 an hour. A simple single page site can be as little as £1000, with the average price for a multi page site being £2000+. More complex sites that have content management or ecommerce start at £2500.

What are the recurring costs with my website?

When launching a new website you will need to consider three main costs: Your domain name, the website hosting and monthly maintenance (which you can do yourself or hire someone to do). We can discuss this in more detail during our first call.

My website needs updating, can I use the same content?

Yes. This happens a lot as part of website redesigns. We can talk this through when we have our first call.

Can you design a logo/update an old logo?

Yes. I provide a professional graphic design service as part of your website price.

Can you help me with social media integration?

Yes. We can integrate all the most popular social media platforms. We also are partnered with a social media management company. They can work with you on your social media if you require this.
