Every business leader understands the value a professional, bespoke website brings to their company. With a team of dedicated digital marketing professionals, you can create beautiful, complex websites that reflect the size and quality of your brand. But when you run a micro-business, an all-singing-all-dancing professional website simply isn’t an option. However, this doesn’t mean a bespoke-quality website isn’t an option – with Cariad Web Design’s template model, your micro-business can have a professional website, with all the advantages that brings, without breaking the bank.
To get straight to the numbers, you may be surprised by the affordability of our affordable website design pricing. We have three packages available, depending on the size of your website, and whether or not you need ecommerce integration. We’ll ask you for a small upfront fee, and have three options for payment: upfront, 3 x annual payments, or monthly payments for three years. For a five page website, this could work out at just £50 a month – less than £2 a day.
The website will be fast and responsive – which means it will look great and work seamlessly whether it’s viewed on a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. Amongst the services included in the cost is a one year SSL security certificate, an anti-spam plugin, Google Analytics to show you how well your website is performing, and we will index your site on Google which will give you a head start on organic rankings.
Your new website will serve you very well, but as your business grows, so will your website needs. This is where having access to a professional digital marketing company comes into its own, as we can provide website design add-ons that will be hugely beneficial to your online presence. Add-ons include support and maintenance as a monthly retainer which means we’ll make sure it’s running like clockwork, update all the plugins, do security checks and will be on hand to help if anything goes wrong. We also have a search engine optimisation (SEO) team who will make your website more visible to all the search engines and ensure a good user experience. If writing is something you don’t enjoy, our copywriter will be happy to help, writing bespoke copy that gives you credibility as experts in what you do, at the same time as contributing to the success of the SEO strategy. You can also hire our graphic designer to create a logo for your new-look website.
To rank highly on search results, you need to continually add content to your website on a regular basis. To keep costs down, we expect that you or one of your staff members will be doing this (although you can also talk to our colleagues at Cariad Marketing about regular content creation). So once your website has been launched, it’ll be over to you to keep it populated by writing blogs, adding details of new products and services, and making important announcements (changes in opening hours, information about how COVID restrictions are affecting your business etc.).
We’ll provide you with in-depth zoom training on how to use the content management system (CMS) that allows you to do that. It’s a straightforward process and will only take an hour.
