I build new websites, maintain websites and optimise websites to do better in local search (also known as Local Search Engine Optimisation or Local SEO). These are the three areas I have the most experience with and can offer the best value for money to my customers.

I work with individuals and businesses. I am also very keen to find designers who would rather I took care of the technical side of things so they can focus on design.

I build websites on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS) because it’s easy for my customers to use and offers endless choices in terms of design and functionality. Whatever design or feature your business website requires, WordPress can almost certainly deliver.

WordPress lets you manage your own website. Easily. You can add new content or edit existing content without needing to hire an expensive web developer every time. Need to update your opening hours? Easy. Have a new service or product you want to tell the world about? WordPress makes this simple.

As well as helping you to design & build your website, I’m happy to advise on choice of domain name, where to host your website, email provider – everything that goes along with setting everything up properly.

I’ll also be there whenever you need help in the future and my maintenance plan let’s you focus on your work while I take care of your website’s backups, updates and security.

Local Search Engine Optimisation (Local SEO)

Nearly half of all Google searches (46%) have “local intent” (Search Engine Roundtable) meaning the searcher is looking for a local service or product. And 76% of consumers searching for something local on their phone visit a store that day (Google).

Penzance Search Engine Optimisation

What do all those fancy stats really mean to you? Well, if you run a business or service that depends on local trade – if you’re a shop owner or a plumber, for example – then optimising for local search can put you in front of many potential customers who are looking to buy your products or to book your services. Today.

Not optimising for local SEO is like handing work to your competition!

Key Local SEO services I offer

  • Google Business Profile setup and optimisation.
  • Website “on-site” SEO optimisation.
  • Keyword and competition research.
  • New pages and content to target keywords.
  • Citation submission and correction.
  • Google reviews advice and strategy.

Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss Local SEO for your business. I offer a one-off service as well as an on-going solution to optimise and keep track of keyword performance, NAP (name, address, phone number inconsistencies) and Google Map Pack ranking.

Website Maintenance Penzance

Website maintenance

I offer two forms of maintenance plan: a fixed price one that’s solely about keeping your website secure and optimised, and a bespoke plan that’s for customers who want regular help adding content and making changes.

My standard website maintenance plan (£45/month)

Offering peace of mind that your website is secure and up to date and leaving you to focus on your work.

  • Monthly updates to WordPress theme, plugins and core.
  • Site cleanup: Removal of comment spam and redundant database files.
  • Daily (external) website backups. External because if your hosting company shuts down we still have safe backups to get you back online fast.
  • Uptime monitoring (making sure your website is online at all times and acting on issues if it goes offline).
  • Daily security checks.
  • Weekly performance checks.
  • Google Analytics Stats (if you use Google Analytics and want these statistics to show in your monthly report).
  • A monthly report showing statistics for all the above works and checks throughout the month.

Included in the £45/month are small, maintenance-related changes such as updating a plugin that raises a security warning or checking on a website that goes down. Works that take longer will be charged but I will seek your advice before going ahead with any chargeable work.

Bespoke maintenance plans

If you’d like me to take care of adding new content or making changes, that’s not a problem at all. Likewise, I’m happy to coach you on using WordPress or for optimising your content for SEO. We can create a plan for anything that suits your needs and your budget.

Please note: Any bespoke plan must include my basic maintenance plan as I need everything up to date to be able to add or edit your content.

Please get in touch if to see if I can help you with my basic maintenance plan and to discuss any, more bespoke, services you may require.
