Portfolio websites are best used to support your brand online, an ideal choice when you want to improve customer engagement and introduce your business to new audiences, helping them to understand more about you.
"Responses from my clients are always positive. I love helping my clients online and enjoy repeatedly exceeding their expectations. For example, a new client I built a portfolio website for commented that they didn't believe they could have a professional website as they thought it was out of their reach. However, once they had a website that worked as well as it looked, they began to see more potential and started to develop their business model."
How much does a portfolio website cost?
Our 'Portfolio' websites are built and maintained on a subscription basis (£24 per month), making having a professional website extremely affordable. Once you begin the subscription, the work gets started. You are provided with a folder online to share your images and text. After a brief consultation with you to determine your needs, I get started building the first demo of your portfolio website.
How long does it take to build a portfolio website?
A portfolio website typically takes about one week to design and build. It also depends on the content; building a finished website is much faster if I have everything up front.
Are there any limitations to a portfolio subscription?
The scope of any project is limited to a total of 5 service pages, which include a homepage, 'About us' page and a 'Contact' page. The other pages can be anything you want them to be. You should enquire about a 'Business' website if you require a more extensive website.

The 'Portfolio Subscription' includes up to 200MB of webmail (that's email that is held on our server), it provides a nice backup if things go wrong. The email storage can be increased but we would recommend you save money on email hosting and set up POP email, this will then store all emails on your local machine and then you're only limited by your own storage.
SEO for Porfolio websites
All of our websites are designed and built including Search Engine Optimisation. We leverage the latest technology in website design to date and employ tried and tested methods that improve the presence of our websites in relevant search engine results.
We specialise in making fast, secure and mobile-friendly websites that are as unique as you are. If you are looking for original designs that raise the bar on website design and creativity then look no further.
Faster than competitors
Speed is important, so we are super thrilled to tell you that our sites are between 54% and 91% faster than other websites tested. This is achieved through keeping to the best practices for optimising website construction. Fewer plugins, cleaner code, optimised imagery, better website hosting and website delivery using a reliable CDN (content delivery network).
Fast website hosting
We use one the best hosting providers in the world, Siteground. If you were to go to them directly you would spend more money than letting us manage your hosting. All of our websites are supported and you never have to worry about the technical side of keeping your website online.
Security and maintenance
Website security is important and we take this very seriously. That is why we make daily backups of your website. Our hosted websites also use state of the art encryption via SSL certificates.
Keeping your website running smoothly is another thing to consider. We have competetive pricing for maintenance and even give you the option to manage the website updates yourself.
Many people are interested in editing existing and adding new content to their websites. We offer various levels of content management included, from Contributors to Editors or up to Admin. We are also able to create unique rolls and control the level of access a particular user has.
