Web Design Scotland, Glasgow and Edinburgh

hello
web design

Step into the world of Darren Summers, a young and energetic Web Designer & Developer living around 30 minutes from Edinburgh & Glasgow, Scotland. It is a strange world full of letters like html, css, php and seo.

It all comes down to knowing the horrible code side to websites and learning the ugly language that it speaks. Keeping up-to-date with all the latest techniques also ensures that we are constantly learning.

WEB DESIGN

Web design is something I have provided for over 7 years. I have a process and I know what looks good and what will make my clients sales and ultimately more money.

  • tell me about your business
    Web Design Requirements

    The first step is to tell me exactly what you want, if your not sure then I can tell you exactly what you need. Once we have established this I can let you know the cost and how long it will take.

  • do you need a logo or branding?
    Business Identity

    In order to build a website your business needs an identity. I am not that keen on designing logos because it takes time and I do not include branding in my services. I know the best brand designers on the planet and can put you in touch with them.

  • shop or not to shop
    eCommerce

    Selling online comes at a totally different cost to a simple information website. You need special hosting, ssl certificates and payment gateways. You wont get an eCommerce site from me for any less than £4,000 (sorry).

WEB DEVELOPMENT

Most "web designers" like to say they are also web developers, this simply is not true. A web developer is a coder while a web designer makes pretty websites. If your looking for non standard functionality you need a developer like me, but again it comes at an extra cost because the skill level involved is much greater than a designer.

  • planning
    Custom Development

    If you require some custom development or non standard features such as special shopping carts, forms and interactions it is extremely important to know exactly what you want.

  • third party implementation
    API's & Apps

    If you are looking to use a third party product that has an API then I am sure I can help. I have used API's for sending SMS messages, communicating with accountancy software such as XERO. As long as the documentation is good then we will be fine.

  • hosting your application
    Server & Security

    When you need custom development using speciality coding you may need to think about non standard web hosting such as a virtual server or even a dedicated server setup. I can keep you on the right track.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

Search engine optimisation is my real passion. I love the rewards for my clients and I get a buzz when we reach that page one goal on Google. It is not for the faint hearted, you could be looking at £500 - £3000 a month for a seriously good campaign.

  • initial consultancy
    Business Consultancy

    You didn't think I just said "aye, whats your keywords?". We meet up, you tell me what your business does and then I tell you what keywords you need to target. I have the tools and the knowledge just let me get on with it.

  • starting the campaign
    SEO Campaign

    I will need access to your existing website and hosting. I will carry out an initial on-site optimisation to prepare your website for the off-site campaign.

  • gaining exposure and links
    Backlinks

    Backlinks are and always will be "one" of the most important aspects of any SEO campaign. I will gain high quality links, I will network with relevant websites and build relationships with bloggers and social media individuals.

Briefing

This is the first step to finding out if I want to work with you. Let me know what you need help with and I will let you know if I am interested. I do not just take on any old client.

Goals

I ensure that the goals you have can be delivered whether it is boosting online sales or targeting an international audience. I have helped companies double their online revenue and I can do the same for your's

Launch + Monitor

Just because your site is live do not think this is the end of the line for me. If you are serious about increasing sales and enquiries we will negotiate a monthly marketing campaign.

Plan & Create
