Website Development and IT Support

Website design by Ivor Rackham

I started designing and building websites for myself in the early 2000s. Although not previously advertising this service, through word of mouth, ever more people in Northumberland have asked me to design their site and help them maintain their web presence. I now offer affordable bespoke website packages to small businesses and individuals.

What Makes My Service Different

My method is quite different from many other website developers. I won’t tie you into a contract with me. In fact, I like to enable you to manage as much of the site as you want. You won’t have a hosting package from which it is almost impossible to escape; that will be with a major supplier in your name, registered to your email address, renewable annually and can be cancelled at any time. You are not paying me an ongoing agent’s fee year after year.

I do offer a monthly support package if that is something you need, and many of my clients ask for that.

Likewise, your domain name is registered to you and not me.

Just like my ambition to help other photographers succeed, my aim is to help you own and control your website and not spend on long-term support you don’t need.

High Quality Website, Total Quality Support

Most web browsing today is done on smartphones. I will ensure your site is fully responsive so will look great in any format.

You will be given full administration access to the site and I will give training to show you how to do simple maintenance tasks like updating the design. You will also have a more basic user account for adding more pages, images, galleries, products, blog posts and so on.

Why your business needs a website

I run a small business 85% of my sales transactions are through my website. If you don’t have your own online presence, you are losing out on business.

How it works

Take a look at other websites to get an idea of what how want yours to look and perform. Think about what you want yours to do and pages you need. For example, do you want a shop, blog or gallery? Now draw a rough flowchart of how you want the menus to work.

Keep the site as simple as possible; it needs to be easy for your customers to navigate. Once you have a reasonable idea, you share this with me and I’ll give you a quote, and we will discuss what works. I am pretty sure that my quote will be very competitive.

Of course, I can supply images for your website if that is required. I have a studio so can shoot products and can produce perfect staff portraits or photographs of your work.

If you already have a functioning website

Several of my clients had functioning websites but lost their previous support so have turned to me. I am happy to help you get your website back under control.

Facebook, Google and SEO

I can also set up your Facebook and Google business pages and show you how to drive clients from those platforms to your website. Your site will have advanced Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) so that it becomes easier to find.

Private websites

Many of my private customers are photographers, musicians and other artists. They just want a site on which to display their creative works. I’ll build an affordable, easy to use and manage website that will help make your work look stunning.

My Clients

My current clients include Brambles Childcare, Fife Plant, Purdy Lodge, Amble Pin Cushion, Amble Cast Off holiday home, The Northumbrian Stone Carver among other businesses, plus many private individuals.
