Website design – Solihull

Portfolio Post

WM Web Design are a U.K. based consultancy located in the centre of Solihull in the West Midlands and most of our work is within the Solihull, Coventry and Birmingham areas.

We specialise in the design and optimisation of high quality websites for local businesses. Our sites are powered by WordPress and built on the Genesis theme framework by Studiopress.

The state of the world’s economy means that now, more than at any time, your business needs a cost efficient and effective marketing tool. A website fulfills both requirements.

“The financial crisis will affect many businesses in the coming months.
Many who weather the economic storm will be those who market themselves effectively online.”
Sitepoint tribune

We are your local web design service and we give you that marketing tool in the shortest time possible, at a price anyone can afford.


What does your website design package include?

Your website starts with a “no cost” face to face meeting to discuss your requirements and to advise on choice of domain name, layout of site and choice of theme that will best suit your requirements.

If you decide to go ahead with your website there will be a further meeting to discuss colour schemes, use of your logo and what pages you will need.
We will then provide you with an itemised quotation for your website.

A typical business website package consists of:

  1. Purchase of a domain name – valid for two years.
  2. Twelve months web hosting on WM’s own hosting service.
  3. A state of the art website, powered by WordPress and built on the Genesis platform by Studiopress.
  4. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) on a page by page basis – we add meta information for title, description and keywords to all pages using the Genesis built-in SEO capabilities. (final keywords to be supplied by client).
  5. An on-page form that your clients can fill in and send to you via email.
  6. Downloadable PDF’s that clients and customers can access.
  7. Addition of Social Media icons with links to your twitter and Facebook pages – this is an extra to our standard SEO package.
  8. Monitor your rankings for your chosen keywords in Google Yahoo and Bing. We use Market Samurai software to monitor your rankings and provide you with a report – this is an extra to our standard SEO package.

All you need to do…
Is supply text and graphics in an electronic format, confirm your chosen keywords and then get on with running your business whilst WM produce your website.


Some of your questions answered…

“Why does my business need a website?”

The first thing that your potential clients do, is take a look at your website. Their first impression of you and your business is often decided by the quality of your website design.

For the cost of a single newspaper ad, you have a website working for you twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

“Is this the best time to be starting a website?”

Good question… take a look at the quote below and see what you think.
This quote is from the blog of SEO experts SEOmoz, a company who know all about the world of the web.
It may be that now is actually the best time to be starting a website.

Is this the best time to be starting a website?
“A downturned economy means more people seeking bargains and the web has become the best resource for that pursuit. Price sensitivity and web usage have been linked in the past, and I suspect that trend will continue..”
From – What Does the Stock Market Implosion Mean for Your Online Business?

“Why use a specialist company for my website – can’t I just do it myself?”

Sure, there are “free website” deals out there, but if you consider the time you will have to spend building your site, the fact that you may have to accept advertising on your site and that your site won’t be optimised, we think that we offer a pretty good deal.


An idea of costs

The size and complexity of business websites varies enormously so it is impossible to give a price.

To give you a feel for costs and to help you with your budgeting, our websites usually fall within the range of £450 to £1,500.

If you think what a half or full page advert in the Solihull News will cost you, you can see that having your own website is a surprisingly low-cost low-risk investment and it is advertising your business 24/7.
