Building Amazing WordPress Websites – At An Affordable Price

Personalised WebdesignHostingCare Packages

I’m Chris and I’m a freelance WordPress website designer based in Cheltenham.

Whether you want a quick one-page site or an all-singing, all-dancing site, I will work with you to get exactly the site your business needs. 

I’m happy to remote work – we can chat on the phone or via Skype – and I’m a completely paperless operation, so I can pretty much work from anywhere that has a WiFi connection.

How can I help you?

I offer a wide range of WordPress development and consultancy services, from strategy and design through to build and implementation.

I can work on a project basis (one-off projects lasting from a few weeks to a few months) or on a retained basis (ongoing work with an agreed notice period).

WordPress Website Design

WordPress is the best CMS around, and it’s the only platform I use – not only is it flexible, easy to use and its simple to manage, its also versatile and well-supported, enabling me to build bespoke, advanced websites that perform amazingly in the real world.

Some Key Features:

  • WordPress sites are built using a content management system (CMS) , so you can change the text and image content without paying for a developer to do this. (Training can be provided.)
  • WordPress has over 40,000 plugins & developers can customise & tailor the sites as per specific needs.
  • There is a huge collection of responsive themes available to use which make development for mobile devices a thing of the past.

  • Domain Name: Prices vary depending on choice of TLD, i.e. .co.uk or .com etc and how long you lease them for. So you could be talking just £3+ to £30+ per year.  For example,  a .co.uk is about £8 for two years. This is included in the £600 and £800 packages.
  • £300: A three page WordPress site can be set up  using a pre built WordPress template. You simply provide text and images laid out just as you want them supplied as a three-paged  Word Document. We then setup the site, add the content from your document, setup basic SEO and setup Google and Bing indexing.
  • £500:  A template based four page (home page, products/services page, an about you page and a contact form) .
  • £700:  A customised, four page WordPress site (home page, products/services page, an about you page and a contact form) with some form of animated top header image.

WordPress Care

It’s essential to keep WordPress up to date including plugins and themes. As with all systems it is essential to ensure that the core system is kept up to date ensuring security and stability. This can be very time consuming and a bit daunting.

With centralised monitoring, linking directly into the back end of your WordPress website, I am able to proactively monitor for the following:

  • Core WordPress updates
  • Theme Updates
  • Plugin Updates
  • Security Updates
  • Up time monitoring

The centralised monitoring will scan your site once every 24 hours and report back to a central console of any new updates or security issues. Site up time monitoring will report to me within five minutes if your site has gone down. With this in mind I would always aim to restore service within a few hours where possible.
