    Is there a more suspicious word in the English language? If there is, I’d love to hear it!

    It’s such a lovely word that should make us feel all warm and happy inside. But it doesn’t. We hear it, and we instantly turn into detectives – complete with deerstalker hat and magnifying glass – trying to decipher what this ‘codeword’ must really mean. But, you know, sometimes ‘free’ just means free.

    Like right now.

    If you didn’t already know, I offer everyone a completely free website consultation. There are no hidden costs. You don’t need to pay me in magic beans (or money, just to emphasise the point). You don’t even have to sign up for my web design services . You can just walk away, and we never have to speak again. You can choose to go with a different designer or developer. Or you might choose not to move forward with your plans at all.

    But I’m game if you are.

    So what are these free consultations all about? Here’s everything you need to know…

    What is a free website consultation?

    A free consultation with me is a super informal 30-minute chat. We can work together to determine what sort of site would be best for you, and understand more about how to build a website that meets your needs. Ultimately, it’s the first step in creating a custom website that really impresses.

    What do we chat about?

    This is your 30 minutes – you can talk about whatever you want! Aliens? Sure. Mechanical engineering? Let’s do it! But if you want to get the most from our time, I’d recommend sticking to topics more web design/development-related. You might want to ask, ‘How does website development work?’, or ‘How much does a website cost?’. You might want to know what to consider when designing a website. You can find information about me and my work on my website, so check these out first and leave yourself with more time to talk about you, your needs, and your goals.

    What’s the aim?

    At the end of our session, I’d really like to understand more about your business and your vision. And I hope you’ll understand more about how I can help make this vision a reality. I’d like us to have some ideas about what we can do, and ideally give you some idea of web design costs and timelines.

    Do I need to prepare?

    You don’t have to, but it can definitely help to have some idea of what you want to discuss, and what sort of website you’re looking for. If you have time, it can be useful to think about the following:

    • Your current challenges
    • Your web design goals
    • What information you want to share with visitors
    • What functionality you need (e.g. a booking system or special integration)
    • What you like/don’t like (e.g. interaction/animation/simplicity, etc.)
    • Your rough budget and timeline

    Why do you do it?

    I think creating an engaging website and online presence is quite a complex area. There are so many different paths to success, and it’s hard for people to know which route to take. I’d like to demystify the whole thing. To make it easier – especially for exciting, characterful businesses – to get exactly what they need.

    I want to save you the frustration of finding out that DIY website builders can do more harm than good. And that AI web design – as amazingly futuristic and cool-sounding as it is – doesn’t always produce the best outcomes. Working with a professional developer is a choice that’s trusted by many successful organisations. I really want to show businesses like yours that, for bespoke sites that truly wow, you need that professional, human touch.

    Yes please!

    I hoped you’d say that. Schedule an appointment with me, and we’ll chat soon! Or contact me for more details.
