Here’s what you can get with a website from freelance web designer, Made in Trenbania. Modern, affordable, securely hosted, backed up, with email, perhaps a shop… what more do you need?
Starting at the beginning, I’ll ask a number of questions. These will help me develop a picture of what you need and understand your goals, your audience, your budget.
I will then offer advice so that the words you put on your website will work towards those goals. The actual content of your website will make a huge contribution to how you rank in Google’s search engines.
Designing and building
I can create your website using your photos and artwork, or photos I take and graphics I design, or source. We’ll then put your website in a secret part of the internet for only you to see. This is a collaborative process and I’ll need your input to form a final design for your website.
Rest assured, I’ll be thorough and take great pride in the work I produce, so you’ll get the best deal for your budget. I constantly check the code against ‘web standards’ and accessibility guidelines to ensure your site works across a range of browsers (they all behave slightly differently) and is available to as many people as possible.
We can integrate your site with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, and a host of other good stuff!
Hosting and email
I can provide reliable hosting for your website – your very own bit of the world wide web! This is where your website will be reached by the rest of the world through your choice of domain name – for example, this site’s domain name is madeintrenbania.com.
If you’d prefer to manage your own domain name, I can still arrange for your site to be hosted with me, we just need to tell your domain hosts where your website is. Don’t worry, I can do that for you.
You can have email addresses too, of course! Mine here is email@example.com. Your domain can host as many email addresses as you need.
Once you’re happy with your new website, it’s time to launch it. Cue the fanfare and champagne! It’s funny, but it’s always a really satisfying feeling for me ‘switching on’ a new website and watch it sail away into the sunset.
And watch it I will… making sure I’m prepared to sort out any queries you may have about your site and how it’s performing.
You’ll receive guidance on how to manage your website. While you host with me, I’ll backup your site daily. I also offer a service to keep your website system up-to-date – that means regularly updating WordPress or Drupal and any plugins or modules installed on the site (which is as important as brushing your teeth – if you don’t do it, there’ll be problems lurking further down the line).
