With 20 years of web design experience, you’re in safe hands, having previously worked with renowned Norfolk businesses such as Busseys, Hoseasons, Norfolk Fire Service and The East Anglian Air Ambulance on their websites.
Today, Daniel dedicates his professional time working with small to medium sized Norfolk businesses, sole traders and organisations to help, guide, design and look after their online presence, with support 7 days a week.
As a local author, I asked Daniel Tink to design a website to publicise my books and the result is http://www.stephenbrowningbooks.co.uk: he also maintains it for me. I am delighted with the design which I think is fresh and original and I know that my book sales and speaking engagements have increased as a result. Daniel is also very easy to work with if I have any queries, comments or suggestions. Unreservedly recommended as a cost-effective and very talented website builder!
Every website build is different, which makes it difficult to give a precise cost but lets go over few typical examples:
A small website with a couple of pages (suitable for sole traders), will likely include: a homepage, an about page, a page listing your services or products and a contact form. The design incorporates your logo & branding and has an easy to use navigation for your website visitors. The setup cost for this type of website starts from around £500 and includes basic SEO, email setup and submission to Google.
Further pages can be added to your website and can include: galleries, sub-pages for your services & product pages, FAQs, testimonials, and a blog. Adding some of these additional pages to your new website and your total setup costs will start from around £1,000, (subject to a free consultation)
Websites for larger sized businesses may require lots of pages, especially if you have separate departments and sub-departments. Price varies greatly on these larger types of website, as much depends on the length of the content on your pages. For this reason, it is often easiest to have a quick chat about your requirements to produce a ball park figure. If this works with your budget, we can then look in more detail to provide you with an accurate quote for costs.
You may decide that you wish to spread costs by splitting your website project into stages. Stage one could give you an online presence with a homepage, and enough important pages to get you going.
There is an small monthly service fee, which covers the following:
A good place to start planning your website is to create a list of all the pages you think you need. A bit like a family tree, start with the your top level pages (these will include your departments and services you offer) and then list all your subpages inside of these (if you need them). You may even find that you need to add sub-pages for your sub-pages creating a third level to your structure.
With your page list complete, it’s a good idea to start thinking about the type of content these may require. This generally takes the form of text, lists, images/photos, and perhaps video. High quality imagery is important as this will give a first impression to potential new customers browsing your website. Mobile phones can take great photos, suitable for web use, but if you’d like help with taking professional photos (perhaps also to be used in your marketing materials or brochures), this can be included as an optional extra.
Green Pastures approached Daniel in 2020 to discuss replacing their existing website that had become dated, slow, untidy and unorganised. The ultimate goal was to create a more modern designed website, that looked friendly and inviting, and that better reflected the high quality of customer service they have built their reputation on. Another important request to ensure the new website was more user friendly in terms of navigation and being able to display on mobile devices efficiently. Other requests included, an online shop, integration with Google Maps,
After a meeting to discuss (in their lovely restaurant) it was agreed to split the new website build into stages. Green Pastures has 3 main operations including Garden Centre, Farmshop and Restaurant. This staged process allowed the owner James more time to write content for the new pages, whilst continuing to run a busy business.
Stage one included, Stage two included and Stage three was to incorporate an e-commerce facility to allow them to sell products from their garden centre and stock of plants online for click and collect. As it turns out Stage 3 was brought forward due to their business being impacted by Covid lockdowns and the need to continue trading as best as they could.
Since going live, Daniel has continued to support Green Pastures with website updates, assisting with promotions, newsletters design and sending to their VIP club, producing flyers and posters for special occasion events and marketing photography for the launch of their afternoon tea service.
