WEBSITE DESIGN and SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION (SEO)

for

CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS & SMALL BUSINESSES

Web Design

Your website has the potential to be a powerful marketing tool, promoting your products and services to your target audience all day, every day.

It can help you reach new customers, expand your reach globally, and establish your credibility in the eyes of potential clients.

I specialize in creating professional websites for CREATIVE professionals and SMALL BUSINESSES, elevating their online presence, and driving increased sales and inquiries.

Your website can reflect your creativity and expertise, showcasing you at the top of your game.

SEO

Are you ready to boost your small business’s online visibility?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) can be a game-changer, driving more traffic to your website and ultimately increasing your sales.

I offer personalised SEO services and courses tailored to the needs of small businesses, helping you unlock the full potential of your online presence.

Hello, I’m Melissa, and I live with my wonderful family and adorable dog, Evie, in the scenic hills of the Shropshire/Herefordshire border.

One thing that truly ignites my passion is helping small creative business owners thrive and make more money online.

I’ve been in the marketing field for over twenty years, and for the past four years, web design too.

But here’s the best part: my approach to work is anything but ordinary. Let me tell you why:

Firstly, I have a solid grasp of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and ensure that every website I build follows the best practices. This way, you’ll be amazed at how easily Google can discover your site (you’d be surprised how many web designers miss out on this important detail).

Secondly, I’ve been in the marketing game long before the internet was even a thing. That means I have a wealth of experience to help you navigate the often confusing world of marketing. Whether it’s through coaching or providing “done for you” services, I’ve got your back and I am easy to work with.

So, if you’re ready to take your online presence to the next level, I’m here to make the journey enjoyable and successful for you. Let’s do this together.
