WEB DESIGN

Web Design

Mike designs and builds bespoke websites, specialising in sites for the wine and hospitality trades.

His design ethos is all about USER EXPERIENCE.  Your site visitors need to be able to navigate across the site without issues and find the info they require as readily as possible. A website needs to have a base in its primary function, promoting your services to your clients.

For web builds Mike uses a variety of different avenues dependant upon your web needs.  He is fully trained in the use of most major web building tools including WordPress, Wix, Weebly, and SquareSpace.  He will also make sure you are aware of how the site has been built so that you can feel in control of your own content moving forward.

Website Updates

Quite often in the wine and hospitality trade, your business will have an existing website, but one that is not quite doing the job you need.  Mike will consult with you, find out all about your business and what your ideal site will offer both you and your clients, and find timely solutions to get your website in perfect shape.

ECOMMERCE

Today’s shoppers are increasingly looking to the internet for all their needs, and the wine and food industries are no different.  Mike can build an entire e-commerce platform within your site.  He will train you how to use it, how to update the practical lines such as shipping and packaging options, and also give you the marketing tools to engage with your customers including newsletters and discounts.

Content & SEO

It’s vital that your site is engaging and easy to find when prospective customers come calling.  Mike specialises in websites for the wine and hospitality industries because he has worked in them and knows what it takes to promote your business.

Mike will use his background as a wine writer and restauranteur to ensure that the word content of your site says the right things to the right people, including the all important search engines though the techniques of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Website Maintenance

Mike is keenly aware that websites are an evolving beast, and once the first iteration is signed, sealed, and delivered, it doesn’t stop there.  One of the biggest criticisms of web designers he’s heard from many prospective clients is the lack of post delivery contact.  Mike promises that will not be your experience with him.

Mike will be available via phone or email on an ongoing basis.  He also offers existing customers monthly or quarterly site health checks and to consult you on any issues or updates you have in mind.

Testimonials

Mike was a pleasure to work with. He understood my requirements, produced a website that fit my business needs, and did so in a timely and cost effective manner

Peter Ranscombe, Freelance Journalist and Copywriter

Mike has been fantastic since we started working with him. When COVID-19 hit, we needed to change the online offering almost weekly just to survive, and Mike was there every step of the way helping us through. We're now back open and he once again updated the site to meet our needs.

Guillaume Dunos, Owner and Chef Patron at La Ferme London

When our website hit problems after our previous web designer vanished, Mike stepped in to help and rebuilt the site including our online shop. The speed at which he completed it really helped get us back out there promoting our wines to the world.
