Creative & Professional Websites
Freelance Edinburgh Web Design & SEO
by Lee Bromham
Most of my work is done with small to medium sized businesses primarily located in Edinburgh, Midlothian, and surrounding areas. However, working online has also allowed me to easily work with many clients nationwide without being in their immediate location. Whether you are looking for an Edinburgh based website designer or you are located elsewhere in the UK, I’d love to discuss your project with you. Contact eezyweb Web Design Edinburgh to find out how I can help.
Why Hire Me?
Modern, creative and functional web design
Modern websites not only need to look the part but also need to function in a way that doesn’t confuse, but makes sense to your visitor. I create websites that are modern in design, mobile friendly and easy to navigate in a logical way.
Skills to deliver the design and functionality you need
Whether you need a simple brochure site, a membership site or a complex e commerce solution, I have the skills and experience to deliver in all aspects of website development.
Unlike larger agencies with expensive office space and staff to pay for, you’re only paying for my skills and time. Premium quality without the design agency price tag.
Built with Google in mind
It’s crucial that your website is designed with SEO in mind from the beginning. Poor site structure will make it very difficult for your site to be found in the search engines. I make sure all of my websites tick all of the boxes for the major search engines list of ever growing requirements.
Personal, friendly service
No project manager or secretary, deal directly with me, the person building your website. I’m available at the end of the phone or email to discuss any aspect of your project without you being told “someone will call you back”.
My aim is to help new and growing businesses create a professional online presence. By making my services affordable and accessible to all types of businesses, large and small.
With more and more people now using their smartphones and tablets as their sole means of internet access, it is critical to the success of a website for it to be fully mobile responsive. I ensure that whatever device your website is viewed on, it will always look and function great.
Design and Development Pricing
In many cases, a basic brochure style, informational type website is all that is required. I have packages that would cover this including basic blogging functionality with a responsive design layout starting at around £800.00.
Often, a more complex solution is required with added functionality such as e-commerce sites, membership sites or booking functionality. The complexity of the features required for such projects will always determine the final cost. The average cost can be anywhere between £800 to £5,000.
Every project tends to be unique and I am happy to discuss options to meet most realistic budgets. If you’re ready for some more concrete prices, visit the Website Design Discovery Form page and let me know a little about what you will require.
There is no obligation on you, it’s just a way for me to gather some basic information on your project to give me an idea of what it will take to bring your project to life.
Ready to Get Started?
What is the design process?
After discussing who your target audience is, I’ll ask you to provide me with some links to websites that you like the look and feel of. They don’t necessarily even need to be in your specific industry, any sites that you like the look of. I’ll then come up with some ideas for how the site will look and how it can be mapped out to make the most sense from a user experience. Once I have a basic layout in place, I’ll ask you for feedback and I will amend and build upon what I have put in place until I have a completed design ready to build out.
How long will it take?
Every website is different and the time to build a website varies on the complexity of the website. A basic 5 page site can usually be completed within a couple of weeks, while more complex sites can sometimes take 2 or 3 months to complete. Before I start, I will discuss timeframes with you.
What will be needed from me?
Over and above a discussion on the project, you will need to provide:
Suitable high-quality photographs
Access to any existing hosting and domain registrars
The ability to respond to email and feedback requests in a timely manner
Can I update the site myself?
Yes, I use WordPress to build most of my website. WordPress allows users to update the content of the website with a very short learning curve and zero coding skills. I will show you how this works once we are complete.
What are your payment schedule terms?
50% deposit of total cost is required prior starting work on a project.
25% upon first approval or 30 days from start, whichever is soonest.
25% upon final approval, prior to site being made live on your own account.
Do you provide photos and written content?
Ideally, this is something that you will want to provide as you know how to speak of your business better than me. I can, however, provide content from an excellent copywriter at an extra cost. Similarly with photographs if you don’t want to use specific photographs I can supply suitable high quality stock images, although in my experience the best results sometimes come from unique, specific photographs to the particular business that have a lot of personality.
Do you offer hosting and maintenance?
Yes, I offer hosting and maintenance packages for all sites that I build for clients. You are of course, free to use your own hosting which I will discuss with you. Maintenance packages vary dependent upon the level of work you choose for me to do on a monthly basis but I offer packages to suit all requirements.
Do you do SEO?
Yes. Basic SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is setup on all pages and is the foundation upon which your Off Site SEO campaign can be built upon. On site SEO is only about 30% of the big picture, the part that really kicks your site into gear is off site SEO – the techniques that are implemented away from your site.
