I came to Laura with a very busy, self-designed Wix website. She really helped me to get it straight in my mind what it was I wanted to convey on my website in a lovely simple way in line with the business that I run, and to strip out all the bits that were not adding value.

Laura made navigating the production of a website very straight forward with excellent suggestions and ideas that I hadn’t thought about.  I really valued her input and feel I have ended up with the website that I want projecting the qualities that are important to me.

What will it cost?

Until I speak with you and understand better exactly how I can help, it’s impossible to give you an accurate quote. However, I understand that it is helpful to have a general idea of costs and so I will try to break down some of my pricing principles below.

I am always happy to split payments over a few weeks or months to make things more affordable for you.

All my site designs, across all 4 platforms (WordPress, Wix, Shopify & Squarespace) are mobile responsive & can include a blog facility if needed.

I also provide you with training on how to edit & manage your site (in person or via Skype), including a PDF & some instructional videos.

Hourly rate £55 | Sometime clients come to me without the budget for a complete redesign. Regardless of the platform, we can usually make some significant changes in 3-5 hours.

For £500 – £750 | Most of my website builds fall into this price bracket. If you want a Squarespace or Wix website, we would most likely start with one of the free design templates offered by the platform, so my fee would be lower than if I were to completely design the website from scratch. Shopify is a similar story although many of their templates cost around £140. If we decide that a WordPress site would be a better option for you, I offer a from-scratch customised website design of 6-8 pages, which woould sit at the top end of the price bracket.  

For £850 – £1200 | I can build a fully bespoke from-scratch 7-12 page WordPress website, arrived at through in-depth consultation with you. At this price point, I present you with two initial design concepts and you are able to give feedback at least 3 times during the design process.

For additions, edits and small jobs, my hourly rate is £55.  Many small tasks can be achieved within an hour.
