Affordable Website Design, Penrith, Cumbria
WordPress Website Design and Build
Greystoke Web Design specialises in secure, fast and affordable website design for small and medium sized businesses in Penrith and Cumbria. We use WordPress to build our websites, which powers over 40% of the entire internet. As a result, it is extremely portable and has a huge developer community. This gives you choice and flexibility. You are not locked into Greystoke Web Design, although we are confident you’ll want to continue our professional relationship. Whether you need a simple brochure site, a fully fledged e-commerce website, or anything else in between, Greystoke Web Design can help your business succeed. See our growing portfolio of web design in Cumbria below.
WordPress websites are easy for our customers to update if they wish. You will receive a quick start guide on how to do this, and we can provide bespoke training and/or documentation to support you.
If you already have an existing WordPress website, we can offer a redesign, security upgrade and refresh to fully modernise your site. For some examples of our recent work in this area, see Cumbrian Motor Home Hire, or The Boot and Shoe Greystoke.
Has your Website Designer Closed Down?
Sadly this isn’t as weird as it sounds. Here at Greystoke Web Design we’ve already helped several customers in this situation. Some website design companies simply close and leave their existing customers with no support. In these circumstances, provided we can get access to the site or a backup, Greystoke Web Design is happy to transfer your website to our affordable hosting and support you going forward.
Why Choose Us?
We believe every small business should have a great website that does exactly what it needs to.
We have over 40 years combined enterprise IT experience in Financial Services
With a combined experience of over 40 years in enterprise IT, we understand web design, security, accessibility and responsiveness. Our websites are designed for mobile first, with security embedded at every stage. We take the time to understand your requirements in depth. This allows us to recommend a solution that’s right for you. When we are finished, you will own everything: your domain, your hosting, and your website. You will also receive a complete website backup. You are then free to update it however you like. We offer ongoing support, maintenance and training because we know how daunting maintaining a website can seem.
Mobile First Design, Optimised for Performance
With over 60% of all internet traffic coming from mobile phones, every website we design is responsive – built to work on phones and tablets. All our websites are fully optimised for performance to ensure fastest possible page load times. Both of these are hugely important for your SEO.
Security, security, security.
Our websites are built to be as secure as possible, with hacker back doors firmly shut, brute force protection as standard, and two factor authentication on login if requested. We take security steps other firms might not. And our background means we are acutely aware of these issues. Do you have an existing WordPress site you want checked? We’re happy to offer a health check report for any WordPress website for just £100, covering security and more.
Adding Value – Website Analytics
Here at Greystoke Web Design, we don’t just build you a website. We’ll set up Google Analytics and Search Console as standard. If you need more in-depth analytics we can add Google Tag Manager and create custom events, for instance to track logins, or form submissions. If you opt for our monthly client reports, you’ll also get handy analytics summaries every month.
Search Engine Optimisation Strategies
Your website will be optimised for SEO. But that’s only part of the story. Links back to your site from other websites (‘backinks’) are also important – this is what is known as ‘off-page SEO’. We’ll help you create key links, set up your Google Business Listing, and provide advice on other listings you might want to consider.
We can also help you connect to your customer base, all in a GDPR compliant way. Customer retention and repeat business is key. We can help you understand how to communicate with your audience, and to ensure your emails don’t end up in the junk folder! We use Mailchimp to help you achieve this.
Your Website is constantly evolving – we can support you
Your website isn’t something that should be built and then left. It constantly evolves to meet your changing needs. A strong foundation with analytics, SEO and understanding of your customers helps you make informed decisions on the changes you need to make. If you choose us to design your site, we’ll support you every step of the way.
