Are you running a small business but don’t want the headache of handling the technical side of things?
I’m sure you would prefer to spend your time and energy working on your business goals and doing what you love.
If so, let me help you with your website.
Over recent months people have relied on the internet for finding local businesses, finding entertainment, keeping in touch with friends and family…
More and more people are using the World Wide Web so it is absolutely vital that you have a web presence for your business so people can find you.
It must be visible to search engines and be fast to load, easy to navigate, compatible with small devices and interesting else your potential customer will swiftly move on to the next result in their Google search.
How do I do all of that?
Well, to be honest, it is not as hard as you think. There are some very quick wins where you can notice an immediate return on investment.
I can take a look at your website and provide a breakdown of what and why a change should be made and how long it will take to do so and what the outcome of the change might be. That way you can prioritise the work based on your goals.
For example, if your web page it taking more than 10 seconds to load we may decide to move to a better web host or optimise all images and scripts to make the page load in less than 3 seconds. This is not costly to do and will give your customers a better user experience, potentially resulting in a successful conversion.
Why do I have to maintain my website if it already works?
I am a great fan of WordPress and recommend it, but with any software, it needs a little TLC every now and again to stay up-to-date and secure.
This can be time-consuming and result in errors which take your site down and look very unprofessional.
Some agencies do offer support, but to be honest, support is not something they want to be doing and if they do offer this service you will have to pay their expensive hourly rate + VAT!
I can provide bespoke maintenance packages to meet your needs and budget. Some sites won’t need much looking after, whereas other sites may have dozens of plugins, an eCommerce shop or lots of moving parts.
Aside from maintenance I also offer many other services, such as:
- Consulting on your website and requirements to work out the best way to achieve your business goals
- Training on how to efficiently manage your WordPress website. Many things can be automated to save you time and money.
- Add new features.
- Fix bugs.
- Help with adding content and laying it out nicely.
- Speed optimisation.
I can handle basic design briefs but am by no means a web designer, however, I have worked with some amazing, reasonably priced designers who I can call on for any of your UX / design requirements.
Why hire a freelancer?
Hiring me as a freelancer saves you having to employ an in-house web developer or an expensive web agency with lots of overheads. Actually, in some cases it is a freelancer doing the work for the agency anyway – so why not go directly to the freelancer.
When you hire me I will be your only point of call. This is useful as you won’t need to discuss your requirements with an account manager and then a designer and then a developer etc which results in a streamlined process to get you results.
It gives you the freedom to be as hands-on or off with the website as you feel confident. I do have clients that like to get their hands dirty but occasionally want to have a short call when they can’t quite get something the way they want it.
And on the other end of the spectrum, I have clients who know what they want but would rather brief me so I can get the job done while they do what they do best.
See what they’re saying.
Here are some testimonials from some past and present clients.
This guy knows his stuff! Excellent to work with, and solved a difficult problem in less than a day. Well done.
Fantastic freelancer. I made a great choice having Amit on my side. He solved my jQuery problem in a flash and went the extra mile to ensure I was very happy. Will definitely use again. Thanks Amit.
Amit is straight talking, honest (we needed a £10 job doing and he priced it at £10 where some others came in at over £100) and gets the job done…we’ll be using him time and time again!
