Website in 1 weekGet your website in record time with my streamlined website build process
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel
Have you ever stopped to think why web designers take so long to deliver your website? You might be led to believe your project is so unique that it needs a lot of hours spent on it but in reality, there are a lot of fundamental similarities in websites. I have identified these similarties which enable me to build you a website quickly, without reinventing the weheel and without having to charge you a fortune in the process.
Why is my web build process different to other web designers?
I believe theme templates are a waste of time
Templates are the foundation of many website designs but many templates need a lot of adjustment to get right. When a template is used that is already half designed it can be a time consuming process to get them to look right.
I have created my own library of templates that I have built using my internet marketing and conversion rate optimisation knowledge. My templates are designed with conversion and ease of modification in mind. I consider the purpose of page and the elements needed to encourage the vistor to take action.
Because I build mine myself I can adjust them really quickly, this saves time, and of course saves you money.
I believe content should drive design
I don’t start building your website until I have all of your content. Then I create one layout based on my wireframe templates. When design comes first, your content has to be squeezed and shaped to fit the space. There can be delays as the design is changed to accomodate your content. Sometimes, content is omitted to keep the design looking good and your project on time.
When content comes first you can say what you need to say without restriction and yoru project is delivered quicker – which saves you money.
I believe strong technical foundations are key to a future-proofed website
I know how to build websites with minumal reliance on plugins. I am a coder so I know how to replace certain plugins with a few lines of simple code . I also know the best plugins to use that have the right functionality. The websites I build are fast, secure and high quality. I build all my websites on the same technical foundations which means I have become really fast and skilled at this. My speed and skill means… yes.. a cost saving for you, oh and the perfect technical base from which to grow your online prescence.
Who is ‘Website in 1 week’ for?
The ‘Website in 1 Week’ service is for service based businesses who want a simple, yet high quality website, quickly and without much fuss! In my experience this is what many small businesses need. It is perfect for those getting online for the first time or those going from a DIY website to one with a more professional look.
I developed this service because I was often being approached by businesses who needed ‘something simple, quick and cheap’. Now many web designers will tell you that you can’t have all three, but that is probably because they have long, complicated processes. That was me a few years ago. I also create ‘marketing’ websites which can take 3 months to build. They include marketing strategy, SEO, lead generation funnels, sales funnels, landing pages, thank you pages, wireframes, multiple rounds of revisions etc… You can see how these website end up expensive!
Who is ‘Website in 1 week’ not for?
Unfortunaltely the website in 1 week is not for everyone.
- It is not for established businesses who are already perfoming well in search engines.
- It is not for e-commerce websites.
- It is not for websites that want to incorporate funnels, such as lead magnet landing pages, thank you pages, upsells and downsells.
If you fall into these categories you will need a ‘bespoke website’.

Why is this service different from other website design services?
This is different because it isn’t a bespoke service. It is based on the fact you only need a simple website, you can provide the content before we start work and you make some design decisions before the work starts.
How will the 'Website in 1 week' service benefit me?
You will benefit from getting online much quicker than if you choose a traditional web designer. Most other web designers will focus on the bells and whistles to justify their higher costs. Bells and whistles take time and cost more money.
You will save money by keeping things simple.
You will feel less stressed because you will know exactly what you are getting and when. No late excuses, no delays. Just a simple, great looking website delivered on time.
Do I need 'branding'?
This is a biggie! One of the main ‘bells and whistles’ you absolutely don’t need with a simple website is ‘branding’.
Website branding comes in two parts.
How you look and what you say.
What you say is far more impactful than how you look. Of course, you need to look professional but that doesn’t mean spending months and lots of money on getting a logo and your colours right or having an expensive photo shoot. Starting off on this when you just want a simple website is a money drain.
Focusing on what you say on you website is going to have a bigger effect on your business.
I will provide you with a document to help you get your visual and verbal branding together, in a simple but focused way. If you don’t have a logo it really doesn’t matter. I can use text. For a colour scheme you can just pick something you like, you don’t need to spend months learning colour theory.
Why do i say this, because you WILL change your branding as your business grows. And you will realise that colour schemes are not what attract clients, it’s more about what you say and how you say it on your website. You need to present your message in a simple to read, non cluttered way, and this service will help you do just that.
Now if you go and talk to a web designer who also claims to do ‘branding’ they will tell you how important it is. So you should really do your background research, if they claim you get more clients after paying for ‘branding’ ask to see evidence. I can certainly show you that my clients websites are working for them without them paying for additional branding.
Some web designers version of branding is to provide you with a logo, website banners and maybe some nicely designed buttons. If you want to keep your price low and get your website quickly, you can do without these extras. Do yourself a favour and save your money.
Do you do 'branding'?
I do help with branding yes. However I am not a graphic designer so I do not build graphical branding elements such as buttons, banners and logos. I can advise you on how to get these for your website if you want advice.
My strength lies in helping you draw out your fundamental branding message that you must convey across your website. This is the branding that should be you priority, not the visuals. If you focus on the visuals but put no thought into what you are saying then your website will fail to connect to your visitors.
If you focus on your message and use a simple, professional design then your website will connect to your visitor and you will stand a better chance of converting them to a client.
I offer this as a separate coaching service and it is an ‘add on’ to the basic ‘website in 1 week’ service.
Have you get examples of your work?
