Website Design for Small Businesses

My small business web design solutions are second to none. Start your journey today.

The internet is a competitive place, and every small business in this digital era now needs a website.  Your website could make the difference between a potential client or customer choosing between you, or your competitors. Getting it wrong is not an option.

Website Design
  • Are you starting a new Business or Rebranding an existing one?

My web design approach is based on gaining a feel for your brand personality. In this way, I can create a unique look that communicates the core of who you are, and what your customers want. The 4 stages of conversion (Attention, Interest, Desire and Action) are very important to your web design. Your website has just a brief moment to catch your customer’s eye. Make them stop and read what you have to say. Appeal to their needs and wants. Then, entice them to take action. Visitors are great… but customers are better.

How much does it cost?

I only quote for what YOU need, so you get the best value for money.

I won’t compete on price with the guy who has a different day job (this is mine). BUT… I will do a lot better of a job because your project is my main focus. My success depends upon the results of the solution I make for you. I won’t charge the arm and leg that a big agency will. Why? Simply, I don’t have the overheads they have (lower rents, flexible workforce to pay etc). BUT… I am just as capable of a big agency.

You will get a top creative agency for LESS than the cost of a single marketing employee.

I am motivated by Success not buzz words…!

Maintenance & Updates

A fee of £40 per page to update, and maintain your website this includes Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

SEO is not about tricks or magic.

A great Google rank takes time, research, specialized skills, common sense and an ethical balanced approach. Your website must follow certain guidelines set out by Google.

It’s not enough to appear 1st when someone searches for your business name (or some obscure specific phrase). You need to rank highly for the words that the majority of your prospects are actually Googling. I work with you to ensure keywords are optimised towards what people are searching for. I help your site achieve and maintain a top position in the natural results (because of roughly 5 times as many people look at the natural results compared to the paid listings).

For SEO to work you MUST have relevant content.

Content is king on the web. Thus, content relevance is the key to high page rank. If your website has the most relevant content, you are likely to be listed at the top of the search results.

Content Strategy

In order for me to understand better your business, I have developed a form where you can complete at you own pace with all the relevant information required to populate each page of your website this information must be supplied by e-mail or as an MS-Word Documents.

Product Photography

Product Photography for Small Business

Does this describe your business?

  • You sell through e-commerce channels.
  • You want to sell more product.
  • You need high-quality images of all your products.

If you answered yes to these questions then outsourcing your product photography is the right move

I charge by the image method

With this method, you will be charged a price for each image produced. For example, if the per image rate is £8.00 and you have 100 products requiring a total of 250 images your total project cost would be $2,000.

This is my preferred pricing structure for service because:

  • I get paid for every image I produce for my customer (unlike with a flat rate per product regardless of the number of images produced).

‘By the image’ pricing works fine for you as well as long as you invest the time in analysing your image requirements. This is not a difficult process, here are the steps:

  • Categorize the products you need images for. There are 2 ways to go about this:
  • Put them in standard product categories e.g. a bike manufacturer has the brake, gear, frame, and accessory products.
  • Put them in photography categories e.g. a bike manufacturer has small products (brake parts, accessories), medium products (handlebars, seats, brake parts, rail components), and large products (frames, wheels).
  • Total the number of products you have in each product or photography category.
  • Determine the number of images you require for each product or photography category. For wheels, you might want 3 images in the bike example – a front image of the full wheel, a close-up of the tire tread, and a close-up of the spokes.
  • Total the number of images required in each product or photography category by multiplying the number of products in each category by the number of images required for the category.
  • Add up all the images required in all the categories. This will give you the total number of images you require for your entire project.

Now that you know all your product or photography categories and the number of images required in each category I can come up with an accurate per image price for each category and therefore the total cost for the project.

Because ‘by the image’ pricing is fair for both of us it is the most common method.

Summary of Additional Product Photography Charges

Product / Image Requirement

Rate Information

These charges increase as the product weight increases.

Example: under 20 lbs no charge, 20 – 30 pounds £X.00 / product, 30 – 50 lbs £X.00 / product; over 50 lbs £X.00 / product.

Product Size

These charges increase the longer, wider, or deeper a product is.

Example: less than 3 feet any dimension no charge; 3 – 6 feet any dimension £X.00 / image; 6 – 8 feet any dimension £X.00 / image; over 8 feet any dimension £X.00 / image

Product Prep

These charges depend on the time it takes to prep and / or assemble a product.

Example: basic unpacking and cleaning no charge; preparing and cleaning taking between 5 and 10 minutes £X.00 / product; preparing and cleaning taking between 10 and 15 minutes £X.00 / product; preparing and cleaning taking more than 15 minutes £X.00 / product

Product Styling

Factors that affect this charge:

How long it takes to style your products prior to photography

Special supplies and expertise required to style the product

Your specific styling requirements

The cost for styling can vary considerably.

Product Layout

This charge could be applied on a per piece basis.

Example: a product has 40 pieces that needed to be laid out on the photography table, each piece is charged at £.XX, total additional charge is £X.XX.

This charge could also be based on the time it takes to layout the product components.

Set Construction

The rate charged depends on:

The set design

The materials and people required to construct the set

The additional products required to be included in the set

It is difficult to define a range of set costs – could be £50 to build the set or £3000 – depends entirely on your requirements and the products that you are displaying in the set.

Lifestyle Images

These charges depend on the product and the lifestyle scenario. Here are some factors that affect the cost:

The expense of having people model and / or use the products

The cost of putting the product on a prop – a model, manikin, a vehicle etc.

All costs associated with creating a set (see ‘Set Required’)

In general, if your images require a set to be built, consider the extent of the set (people, other products, design, and construction) and estimate the cost.

Specialty Images

These charges would be based on the time it takes to switch the studio and equipment around in order to capture the image view and be reflected as an additional £X.00 / image.

Group Images

These charges will almost always be by the image and will depend on the number of products in the image, the time it takes for the photographer to layout the products on the table, and the photographer’s time capturing the image.
