Make your website work for you

I am a Wiltshire based Web Designer who creates beautiful, bespoke and responsive websites that look great on all browsers and devices. The sites I create are primarily built-in WordPress themes, although since the COVID pandemic I have also assisted a number of clients in setting up online shops in a variety of platforms such as Shopify & WooCommerce.

My clients not only love the design of their sites but also find the back end easy to manage and with a little training can manage their own content updates. Many choose to focus on other aspects of their business and ask me to support them as and when they need it. It’s important to know that the work we create together will be a good investment, your website will be a sound foundation on which you can continue to build on as your business requires.

PROJECT PLANNING

Where do I start?

Knowing where to start can be overwhelming, especially when you are juggling your daily business tasks along with everything else life throws at you. Here are some helpful tips to get started:

  • Identify your goals – What do you want your website to achieve?
  • Understand your target audience – Who is your site talking to?
  • What are the unique selling points or services?
  • Content – What do you want to say and how do you want to say it?

For those who struggle with getting ideas down on paper, fear not I love it and I’m always happy to help.

Websites should grow and change with your business, so for those who are just starting out it’s sensible to set your budget to cover the basics and then add elements and functionality over time as needed.

  • Consider professional/stock images – They really can make or break a site.
  • Social media – Add your instagram feed, it’s a great way to drive traffic to your site without increasing workload.

For those who struggle with getting ideas down on paper, fear not I love it and I’m always happy to help. I also know some very good graphic designers and copy writers if needed.

TESTIMONIALS

What my client’s think

“Tess did an amazing job in developing a new website for the Legal Sustainability Alliance (LSA).  She advised on a design and layout which reflected the professional nature of LSA members yet had a fresh and interesting feel.  Her approach has also enabled us to dramatically reduce the clutter of the old site whilst making it far easier to access information via the new one.  Tess has also helped enormously in creating new material for the site as well as reformatting existing resources to be carried over.  Tess is easy to work with, responsive, full of helpful ideas and suggestions and has been a valuable partner in ensuring the LSA has a strong web offering and profile.”
