I have experience building WordPress websites, like this one, and also have skills in html/css coding.
I can quote you for larger sites, or e-commerce sites. I can also refer you to excellent web specialists if needs are more complex.
Domain names and hosting aren’t included, but I can purchase these for you (approx £150).
I also provide adhoc assistance with your existing WordPress website for £17 an hour.
Starting at £150 depending on quantity of materials.
I can analyse your existing communications such as your website, emails, blogs, brochures, social media and adverts and write an advisory report with recommendations.
Your business, your vision, your voice
Your voice is your first USP (unique selling point) so I prefer to have a verbal chat with you to get a feel for who you are, what your business does, what it means to you and what you want to achieve.
Terms and Conditions
There is a £20 minimum charge per job/invoice.
I’m not big enough to be registered for VAT. My payment terms are 7 days from the invoice date.
Hourly rates are rounded up to the nearest quarter hour.
For jobs priced above £75, I will invoice for half of the agreed amount upfront. I won’t start work until I receive this payment.
I will invoice for the balance once the work has been completed (including changes as below). If I have not received any feedback or comments within two weeks of submitting work to you (at any stage – the initial draft or subsequent edits), I will consider the work has been completed to your satisfaction and will send my final invoice.
Deadlines are important to me, and to you. Please ensure you supply information/materials, feedback, and payment on time. I can’t help missing a deadline if you do.
Changes and revisions
For fixed-price agreements, edits and rewrites are limited to basic changes equal to 1 hour’s worth. This is only offered until the point where you sign off my work, publish it or begin using it on your live website.
For proofreading and editing, I will re-read your amended copy and suggest any further changes as necessary.
All other amends will be charged at the hourly rate of £17.
Once full and final payment is received, copyright of the work I produce is automatically assigned to you. Until then, copyright of the work remains with me.
I do reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of my online portfolio. (Though this is good for your Google ranking.)
If I have not received any feedback or comments within two weeks of submitting work to you (at any stage – the initial draft or subsequent edits), I will assume you are happy the work has been completed and will invoice for the remaining balance.
If you wish to cancel after agreeing that I start work, I reserve the right to charge for any work that I have already done.
In the event that I have lost other work in the expectation of working for you, I will provide evidence of the financial loss and charge you the total cost that we had agreed on.
I will do my best to ensure all facts and statements in my work are true and that it doesn’t infringe upon any copyright or other right of a third party.
However, I can’t be liable to you, or any third party, for damages, including lost profits, lost savings, complaints, claims, litigation or other incidental, consequential or special damages which arise regarding this assignment.
