Time is everything for small businesses, that’s why I work mainly through email and telephone discussions with clients.
From an initial no obligation quote to the final live website, working through email allows clients to contact me at any time about their website design, what they want included and any amendments they require. A guest login is given that allows you to see behind the holding page whilst your website is created, keeping you updated on the website progress, and any amendments and changes you require can be made. A quicker and more efficient process is then achieved consequently getting your website online sooner.
Every website produced by Somerset Small Business Web Design will include:
- Unique and personalized web design online within 3 – 4 weeks on average.
- Free website holding page whilst your website is being built
- Mobile friendly design that ensures your website looks great viewed from mobile phones and tablets.

Extras and Maintenance.
Perhaps the idea of building a website from scratch is daunting or you just do not have the time to fit in building your own online presence, BUT you feel capable to maintain and update at your will once the initial foundations have been made, my services allow you to do just that and include a independently written WordPress User Guide for your reference once your website has been created.
For those clients that would prefer Somerset Small Business Web Design services to update and maintain their website, I offer maintenance services. Not everyone especially smaller businesses, want to pay a monthly fee for their website as many web design companies require, therefore I only charge for the time it takes to update and maintain at your request.
