Your website – made better
The chances are that you’ve been on a website today looking for something, or someone. If you have a story to tell, or a business to promote, then the chances are also strong that people have been looking for you – but have you been found?
If your website has been found – what impression has it given? Informative? Dull? Outdated? Helpful?
Great websites are not just a bonus for the modern business, they are a necessity. You want a website that looks good, and works well. Because who wants one but not the other?
I work with clients to build beautiful wordpress websites. As the worlds leading content management system it offers incredible flexibility to produce sites that can get your message seen, and your story told.
How we work
Every project begins with undertstanding your objectives. What do you want your website to do? What have you tried in the past that has or hasn’t worked – and what do you want to emulate from your competitors websites?
Taking the information we discovered during the delve stage, we’ll develop ideas as to what your website could look like and build out a sitemap that details the options.
Once you are confident that your sitemap lists all of your ideas and preferences we’ll begin to develop your new website.
Once we have your new website built we will make sure that it’s working across a range of devices and browsers in addition to getting your new site set up with Google Analytics and Search Console.

Frequently asked questions
The internet is a busy place, and as it constantly evolves, it can be hard to keep up. We’re here to help – if your question isn’t answered below, get in touch.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is the world’s leading content management system for websites. It can be best described as being like lego – you can build what you like to do what you need – you just need to find the pieces and a way to fit them together.
We don't like our current site - can you help?
Yes – an essential part of each website redesign or new build is establishing what you are trying to achieve. What do you like about other peoples websites or what hasn’t worked for you in the past.
Can't I just build a free website?
You can – but you shouldn’t.
A succesful website is about a combination of factors – great content, design, strategy – and partnership with your other marketing efforts.
All sites that we build are also designed to be as fast as possible, and optimised for search engines – a crucial part of modern websites.
Can you optimise our site for Google?
All sites that I develop are built with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in mind and are developed to rank organically in search engines such as Google.
A keyword/phrase strategy will usually be worked through with a client at the beginning of a new project, and I am also happy to offer an SEO advisory service to new clients with pre existing sites who are looking to improve their Google ranking.
What is content?
Content are the building blocks that make up your site. Text, photos, visuals – it can be pretty much whatever you would like it to be, depending on what your website requires.
How much will a site cost?
As with most projects where a build is required, the costs will vary substantially. Current website development costs for a new website start from £1,000. A website review of an existing site costs from £295.
Can you fix our current website?
Possibly – I’ll certainly be happy to take a look. I offer a website review service at a cost of £295. That covers a range of suggested improvements to an exisiting site, in addition to providing a backup of your current site, should the hosting be accessible.
Depending on the current condition of your website, I will either advise how to develop the existing infrastructure, or how to look at developing a new website.
Can you sort out our hosting, domain and e-mails?
Domains, hosting and e-mail support are included in each new web project. I’ll take the time to explain each of the services and which solution would best suit your needs.
Should you be looking to transfer your services from one domain or hosting package to another, I’ll also be happy to advise.
Do you only work with clients in Inverness?
No, I work with a range of clients, in a range of places. It’s all part of the creative process.
Although I am based in Inverness I have clients throughout Scotland, including in Aberdeen and the Central Belt.
