Are you a small to medium-sized business?
Would you like a professional-looking website within your budget?
If you answered "yes", then Joanne Wood Design is here to help!
At Joanne Wood Design Ltd we are predominantly graphic designers rather than IT consultants, which means we know how both to make things look good and, more importantly, how design can sell a product or service. A good designer has an understanding and appreciation of marketing techniques. For example, a piece of packaging or a leaflet acts as a silent salesperson, representing your company and explaining the benefits of your product or service. The aim of the graphic is always to raise awareness of the brand, service/product, provide information or/and increase sales or correspondence. Looking good is only part of the equation – design needs to produce results!
Having a website is the same. It's a key marketing tool, required by any business sector and any size of business. A company's website is one of the most powerful marketing tools available to them and it’s surprising how many small businesses still don't have one – imagine the potential business, audience and income that can be generated by a good website!
So why don't all small to medium-sized businesses have a website? Often it comes down to:
Cost – with a responsive website often costing £5,000 upwards.
Time – small business owners are focused on just providing their business service, they don't have the hours required to sit at a computer building a website.
Knowledge – most small to medium-sized businesses don't employ an expert to deal with their website/communications/marketing.
Software – most small to medium-sized businesses don't have the software required to create the logos and images they need.
We understand all of these concerns and so we have developed an alternative.
Cost is of course a key consideration for a small to medium size business, and our websites offer great value for money starting at just £500. We are happy to advise a budget allowance before work commences, as every website is unique based on the amount of pages and complexity. We charge no on-going monthly maintenance charges or fees, you can just get back in touch with us if you need anything else done or updated.
We can design and build a website for you – from start to finish. We can even create you a whole new brand identity, if you want us to – the complete package!
We won't baffle you with technical terms and we will make the whole process as simple and as enjoyable as possible. We will do all the work in the UK – we won't send it out to another company overseas to do it.
As graphic designers we can use the Wix set-up to build our sites. (There is a small monthly charge payable directly to wix.com, on average £3-10 per month.) From this we will create a responsive site which is professional and current. We will work within Wix to create your website as a desktop and mobile version, switching between editors, to ensure your site looks good on all devices. This way of website building can seem a bit complex to the web-building novice, so we will take the work and worry away from you, and as designers we know how to make the site look professional and also how to make it easy to use and navigate.
We can also offer you a fully responsive WordPress website, the choice is yours. We are happy to give advice on the best choice of site build to meet your project/brand vision and budget.
In addition to website design, we can help purchase your website address (domain name) and take care of the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) within Wix for you. We will also submit your new website to the search engines; Google, Yahoo etc. as getting your website seen by a wide audience is crucial to its success.
So what are you waiting for? Have the professional looking website you've always dreamed of, for minimal financial input or effort (on your part!). Let us design your website and you can get back to doing what you do best – running your business.
What our clients say about our websites:
"Getting our website redesigned by Joanne Wood Design was one of the best things we have done, straight-away we noticed an increase in calls and emails with customers directly coming through from the website. In the first week the amount of calls and emails we received lead to a 400% increase in customer contact, 95% of which lead directly to more work. The cost of the website was recuperated in no time." – Matt Sloan, Director, Autotints.
"We are absolutely delighted with our website, from the initial first contact we had with Joanne Wood Design to the completion of our website we were kept informed of the progress and development. We were very impressed with the artwork and set up and could not believe how quickly we started to have enquiries regarding our services! We have had so many complimentary comments regarding our website this is all due to Jo’s hard work. We would urge anyone who is thinking of having a website etc. to make Joanne Wood Design their first call." – Paul Ellis, Director, Taxi Wedding Company.
