Affordable web design for small businesses and start ups

affordable web design
Affordable websites. No lock-in contracts. No ongoing fees.
When starting a business, a website should be one of your first priorities. A well-designed website, created by a professional developer who knows what their craft, should be considered an investment in your business and not an expense. Additionally, when optimised correctly for search engine ranking (Google, etc) your website will pay for itself very quickly, making you money for many, many years to come.

Website developer Rebecca Mitchell specialises in providing affordable web design + SEO services (Google rankings) for small businesses and start-ups. She has worked with hundreds of businesses and charities spanning just about every conceivable industry and has 20+ years of experience in web design and all aspects of online and offline marketing.

I believe one of my distinguishing points of difference over other website developers is the advice, knowledge and expertise that I provide clients at no additional cost.  I work in conjunction with you to determine who your clients are, where they can be found and how I can ensure your marketing message speaks directly to potential customers.

I want your business to get noticed and your goals achieved.

I work on every project personally and do not outsource to cheap, overseas contractors and then charge you a premium. This is your assurance that all work is completed by someone who understands the local market, the unique needs of your business needs and those of your customers.

Working from a home office, I am able to keep her fees low whilst always providing my clients with expert advice and highly tailored services without a ‘big business’ price tag.

Chloe’s Creative Classroom

At the onset of COVID in early 2020, many pre-schools and childcare centres closed and parents were forced to home school children while they too worked from home. Newport small business owner, Chloe Campana, saw a need in this changing marketplace and, with her degree in early childcare, created Chloe’s Creative Classroom. Created with the purpose of connecting with children so they can learn through an interactive classroom, Chloe’s Creative Classroom is always fun, creative and educational.

Chloe required a website so she could spread the word about her exciting new business and also take bookings.  Chloe contacted me to develop her website and I was only too happy to assist.  Being a start-up business, I came up with an affordable web design package that fit within Chloe’s budget yet looked anything but “cheap”. The finished website looked great and suitably represented Chloe’s fun yet professional service.
