Internet & Website Services
I have the expertise to build and support your website from scratch. From domain choice to a complete hosting package. From website design (including mobile phones) to coding, SEO and completion. I've worked on multi-language websites too, so if you need the ability to show different content based on their language or location, then contact me for more details. Recent websites include:
- Bryce Properties (website) - A Plymouth landlord with a large portfolio of student and professional rooms and accommodation. He needed a simple but easy to use website to market his student and professional properties in Plymouth. Includes a large gallery of images for each property
- Riverford Farm Shop (Site in progress Feb/March 2012) - (website). The Watson family has farmed the 350 hectare Riverford Farm for nearly 50 years, more than twenty of which have been spent working to bring back the taste and quality of traditional foods through the farm shop with its butchery, bakery and kitchens, the organic vegetable box business and the organic dairy.
- Deptford Place, Plymouth (website) - A Plymouth landlord with a large portfolio of student and professional rooms decided to build three new top quality student houses. The development comprises 22 large double bedrooms, plenty of shower rooms and large communal lounges and kitchens. The houses are in an ideal location close to the University of Plymouth

It goes without saying that each project or task will have a different cost to another one. However...
Monthly peace of mind
- I offer monthly peace of mind support contracts. These contracts allow you to ask for something, actually anything, to be done within a previously agreed scope (I would discuss with you what your likely requirements are)
- As an example, for a site to be initially designed, hosted and built and then regular updates applied, you could be spending as little as £45 per month.
- So, why not start a discussion with me about setting up a peace of mind contract today?
Hourly and project rates
- If you prefer the pay-as-you go method, then my charges are very reasonable and start at £35 per hour.
- If a daily rate is required (for those larger projects) then you should base your costs from £245 per day
