Inverness Website Design –

Websites that look good and work well

Inverness website design from Tentmaker Creative.

I design websites that look good, and work well.

The internet may not have been around for long, but it’s presence has had a significant impact on pretty much everybody, everywhere.

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 Outdated?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.

All websites from Tentmaker Creative are built to:

Look good

My approach to design is simple – websites should look good, and work well. As part of every initial development phase of a new or updated website, Tentmaker Creative will help you refine or develop your brand identity.

Work well

Nobody likes a website that is overly difficult to use. We’ll help you consider the best way to lay out your information to tell your message as clearly as possible and get your site set up to respond to a variety of devices and screen sizes.

Have a clear development strategy

We help clients consider what it is their website should be doing – and how to keep it fresh as time goes on. Our maintenance packages also cover essential updates and backups of your site.

Hosting, Domain Registration and E-mail

Web hosting can make a key difference between a good website and a great website – we’ll help you find one that matches the unique needs of your specific website.

We’ll also take care of your domain name registration or renewal – and advising on an email solution to match.

Get found on Google

Search Engine Optimisation – SEO are three little letters that you might see people write about – but what do they actually mean?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of helping your website to climb up the ranks in a variety of search engines such as Google. It can be a complicated process, but in the right hands, it doesn’t have to be.

Maintenance and Modification

Ongoing site maintenance and development – Your website is working for your 24/7 so it’s important to make sure it’s working well. Our maintenance plans help keep your site safe, secure and performing well.

Inverness Website Design Portfolio

Judy Laing Photography

Judy was looking to update her current WordPress website while adding new pages to extend her portfolio. In addition to helping develop a new look for her website I also undertook a thorough optimisation process to clear up the back end of her existing site.

Her site is now ranking on the 1st page of Google for all of her search terms!

Glenelg and Inverinate Free Church

Glenelg and Inverinate Free Church were looking for a new website to inform the community of the main activities of the church.

I developed a simple one page website for their key information, in addition to an extra archive space for their audio sermon content that they upload themselves each week.

Bairds 1823

Bairds Malt were looking for a new site to showcase a range of 6 new premium malts which they had developed and were due to launch into a new market.

The project had an initial tight turnaround, and was developed as a stand alone to their existing main website.

How I work

Delve

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?

Develop

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.

Design

Once you are confident that your sitemap lists all of your ideas and preferences we’ll begin to develop your new website.

Deploy

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.

You’ve got questions – I’ve (hopefully!) got the answers

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 there are a whole list of reasons why it’s not reccommended. – Get in touch for more information.

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 £195.

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, this page says Inverness Website Design but I work with a range of clients, in a range of places.

Although I am based in Inverness I have clients throughout Scotland, including in Aberdeen and the Central Belt.

Roddy has been an incredible help to A&I. We were looking for a better way to present our products and engage with our customers. Through a range of projects, he has helped us to do just that – we can’t wait to get our new sales website online!
