FREELANCE
WEBSITE DESIGN (SHEFFIELD)

WHAT SETS MY WEBSITES APART:
Website design and SEO services based in Sheffield. The primary focus of Fly Digital is designing and developing websites that market themselves through good online search rankings from services like Google. For you to see improved business from the offset this must be considered in all aspects of the design and technical build of the site. This form of marketing should be at the heart of any online business and form the foundation of a website.

WHAT I OFFER:
I can offer tailored solutions for businesses that need to build a brand, increase sales, or generally improve their web presence. My process isn’t a standard design and development package that you might expect. I start at the beginning and analyse the most effective way in which your clients or customers can land on your website, get in touch with you, or make an online purchase, depending on your business objectives. Whether this is through targeted search keywords, paid advertising or social media campaigns. I find the most appropriate method for you to find new business.

I will analyse your direct national or regional competitors, how effective their marketing is and the different ways in which they attract their clients. I’ll then use this to streamline your own targeted approach.

I research how your target audience uses the internet to understand how they might be directed to your website. I’ll then present them with the information they’re looking for in an interactive and user-friendly way. I will map out user journeys and plan the most appropriate way for them to navigate your site, making it as easy as possible and to deter them from exiting your website. This will then convert your target audience’s site visit into potential business for you.

When we’ve planned a clear, streamlined direction for your company’s website, we can begin to think about your brand image and online presence. My approach to digital design and marketing is to do with more than just creating attractive design work. Gaining a deeper understanding of your business is essential, as it helps me to create an identity that immediately conveys your story as soon as your customer lands on your homepage.

RELIABILITY:
I work closely with a team of full-time freelance specialists all based in Sheffield who each have over 15 years experience working with businesses and organisations across the UK. Because of this breadth of knowledge I can offer a reliable level of service that competes with larger design agencies yet is priced more affordably.

WEB PROJECTS (LATEST 4 PROJECTS)

WEB DESIGN

I set up Fly Digital in 2014, having spent most of my career working for two large design agencies. After 5 years, I felt I had the experience to run my own business. I pride myself in offering the same level of service but I can afford to be more competitive with my quotes. The sites I design are built to the same high standards using reliable, scalable platforms. I offer a personable service and invite my clients to pick-up the phone or drop by whenever necessary. I don’t have anything to hide, offering completely transparent pricing.

SEARCH
OPTIMISATION (SEO)

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the focus of all my web projects. Most of my clients rely on organic rankings (the position their site reaches in a list of results from a search engine such as Google) for business success. This cost-free form of advertising should be at the forefront of all design and development decisions made throughout the process for long-term business success. There are of course other ways of promoting your website but I believe a strong search engine result should form the foundation to any modern online business.

QUESTIONS

Some common questions I get asked.

Why do I need a website for my business?

A website acts as your business card, your salesman and your shop window. Websites are often the only method of generating income for a business and they can be used to communicate your brand’s story and the ethos behind your company. With the right help, a website can transform your business.

Will a website bring in new business?

Unfortunately, simply building and launching a new website won’t instantly expose your business to the world. A website needs SEO input, otherwise it will be almost invisible during its first few months online. In today’s competitive market you’ll require some expert knowledge to increase your visibility.

Is there any guarantee my search results will improve?

My initial SEO advice is provided as a consultation service. Anyone who blindly promises to get you to the ‘top of Google’ doesn’t understand how SEO works. It’s all about doing more and better than your competition. I won’t make promises until I’ve done the research and worked out what needs to be done. I will then present this information to you along with how much traffic I think it will drive to your website and I’ll help convert this to potential business growth or revenue.

How much does a website cost?

Simple websites start from £2000 but exceptions can be made depending on your specific requirements.

Websites can be built cheaply. Why do these sites cost more?

Getting the look and feel of your website right shouldn’t be a quick process. It takes time to convey your story and present your brand in a meaningful way.

Also, search engines know the difference between a bloated template site and something that’s built specifically for its purpose. The quality of the build and the time it takes to load will have a direct impact on your ranking position and your visibility online.

Do you offer PPC and social media advertising?

I do, but I always recommend my clients  focus on organic search rankings before expoloring other avenues. Search engines provide us with free advertising. I advise maximising your SEO before any other form of paid advertising. Although it can take some work to position well, that visibility will remain relatively consistent.

Can I make changes to the sites myself?

Yes. One of the main reasons I use WordPress as a content editor is due to how easy it is to edit. You’ll have full control of editing content across the whole site.

I’ve never edited a website before will it be too technical for me?

More sites are built on WordPress than any other. This is largely down to how easy the sites is to manage. However when I hand the site over to you, I offer full one-to-one tuition and ongoing support is available for as long as you need it.

Will I be tied to Fly Digital in any way after the project?

You will own every aspect of the design and development of your site. You will also have full control to move it should you ever need to.
