Hello, I'm Thom Clark. I'm a freelance website designer from Leeds now living in Bradford City Centre. I provide website design and hosting solutions to Small Businesses, Individuals & Charities across West Yorkshire. I host have over 15 years experience within the sector providing a wealth of knowledge to my clients.
Most of my websites are written in HTML5 on a fully responsive framework to provide the greatest outreach to your customers, allowing the website to be displayed in friendly way on all screen sizes. These websites are quite small in size and load super-fast on the server creating a better experience for the users.
I can also provide websites using Content Management Systems (CMS) to allow clients to log in and easily change the website content. These websites are larger in size so may cost slightly more in hosting fees.
SSL/TLS (Website Security & Certificate) can be added to any of my work. This used to be important only on websites that use peoples data or banking details such as online shops. However now Google marks down all websites that do not have a valid Certificate. Users know they are safe when they see the padlock at the side of their URL in the Address Bar. This is also good for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) as websites with this will appear higher in search engines such as google or Bing etc. Standard SSL Certificates are available from £60/pa.
Step 1 - Planning
Meet or call to discuss needs of website and how you would like it to look. Please give as much detail as possible of any features you may want to be incorporated within the build. We will also discuss costs of designing the website, Hosting the website on a web server, the domain name and any re-development charges. You will need to have an idea of the content you would like to display to your customers.
Step 2 - Design
I go back to my office to design the website for you and it usually takes about two weeks to put everything together. I will host the website on a live development environment and send you a link to where you can see the website. I will then be in touch to discuss any changes you wish to make.
Step 3 - Go Live
Now all changes have been made the website should be ready to be made live for the world to see under the domain name you have chosen ie www.yourwebsite.com. It is at this point any outstanding invoices must be paid.
Step 4 - Freebies
I provide freebies such as adding your business to Google Places and tracking your websites interactions with your viewers using the Google Analytics Platform.
