The £499 website deal
Updated: 6 days ago
That's right, you didn't read incorrectly.
I am currently offering a full website design and build service for just £499!
If you order now....
Well, you get a website for £499!
Why is your website design service so cheap?
This is simple. Whilst I've been building and hosting websites since 1998 (yes, I literally had my own servers in my home running Internet Information Services and coding websites in HTML) I haven't built any for other peoplebusinesses in the past 10 years as my career moved more into the sales side of things.
So the introductory rate of a website for £499 is a limited offer to build up a portfolio of new websites that I can show to leads.
It does NOT mean that you get an inferior service.
It does NOT mean that I have no experience building websites.
It does NOT mean that I don't have an intermediate understanding of SEO.
It simply means that the first 10 clients who take up this offer get unbelievable value for money!
What do I get?
The following is included in the introductory offer:
An up to 6-page Wix or SquareSpace
Built from scratch - your business deserves more than a template!
Initial site and page SEO
Built with a mobile-first approach*
An up to 2-hour virtual photoshoot in which we'll get updated headshots and other images required for the website so as to avoid using stock images where possible.
Full training on the Wix or Squarespace editor so that you can take full ownership of the website.
An SEO guide providing tips and actions you can take to continue improving your SEO.
* Mobile first approach means that I build your website focussed on the mobile version rather than the desktop layout. Why? Because with over 60% of internet traffic occurring on a mobile device it makes absolute sense that you would build your website for this format.
What don't I get?
I do not write the content/copy for your site. If you require me to write the copy, please get in touch to discuss your requirements and a quote based on this additional service.
You have to pay for your Wix or Squarespace website in addition to my fee. You could use a free website on either of these platforms, however I don't recommend this. Wix does offer a 'Connect your own domain' option for £3 a month, however you do get ads displayed on your website. This is the case with any free websites.
What is the process of building my website?
Should you wish to take advantage of this one time offer, the process from start to launch would be as follows:
A project kick off meeting - during this meeting we will agree the timescales for delivery. I will let you know the information I will require from you during the course of the project.
Project plan - following our kickoff meeting I will put together a project plan incorporating our agreed deadlines. This will include deadlines for items that you need to provide, for example the text for the pages, your brand guide etc. It will also contain dates for the draft site to be ready, deadlines for you to provide feedback/change requests in and more.
Build layout - I will begin work on the site instruction and page layouts.
Sign-off on structure and layout - you get time to review the draft and submit any feedback and/or change requests.
Build website - once you've signed off on the structure and layout of the website, I will begin adding the content and page elements.
Virtual photoshoot - we will perform a virtual photoshoot if required to get uptodate imagery for your website
Website beta - Once I've added the page content and elements you will be given time in which to review the site and provide any feedback or change requests.
Website launch - following any changes made from the feedback you provide, the website will be launched and made live.
Training - following launch of your website I will provide training on the editor so that you can maintain your website yourself moving forward.
SEO guide - I will provide an SEO guide with actions you should perform to up your search engine rankings.
Do you have examples of your work?
As mentioned above, the primary reason for offering this low introductory price is to put together a more comprehensive portfolio of websites I can show potential clients.
Therefore, at the point of writing this blog post, I have the following websites in my portfolio
EmC Photography (my photography website) EmC Consulting (this website)
3 (coming soon, currently being developed)
I will of course update this blog post as I build more sites.
I have toyed with the idea of creating a few free websites just to show off different layouts and designs, so I may well do this if it will help potential clients feel confident about working with me.
What others have to say
Elton rebuilt my website which included optimising the SEO for each page, optimising the mobile website and installing and configuring a blog. Elton completed the work really quickly and within budget. Elton showed me how to update the website which allows me to keep things current. Elton was fun to work with and demonstrated a high level of technical expertise. He gave me lots of hints and tips about getting found on the web. If you’re looking for something new then give Elton a call! - Julie Osborn (April 2020) Source: LinkedIn
Elton, Fantastic job. Not only did you look after one of my connections by building a new website, but you also did this in record time and provided 1:1 training so she was able to administer it herself. It's always difficult to recommend someone you've not met face to face, and I can happily say I wasn't disappointed in your service and the client is very happy with the result. An added advantage, she has bespoke photos for her website too! I have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential clients for your IT/Website building expertise. Thank you, Carol - Carol McIntyre (April 2020) Source: LinkedIn
