Web Design in Ross-on-Wye.
We believe a clean website design is one of the most powerful marketing assets a business can have. When you invest in a strategic website for your corporation, you can take advantage of ranking higher than your competitors in Google, and communicate more effectively to your business partners to improve understanding in the service you provide, and how they can benefit from partnering with you.
Make an impression and communicate your services effectively. We have worked with international companies with large volumes of traffic.
We like to build an action plan beforehand; understanding your goals and working to a clear target.
Websites shouldn’t be built with a one-size-fits-all mentality. This results in a website that draws little traffic and converts even less. We can plan the site and give you a quote to fit your budget.
We are based in Ross-on-Wye, and we have designed websites for businesses such as No3 Restaurant, Leonards at 39, and CJP Broadcasting.
With over 8 years experience, we have previously worked with other local web design companies providing design and search engine optimisation, so their clients could rank in higher positions in Google.
We recently worked with Jones Design Create, building a website for their client Valentine Warner (Valentine Warner is a chef. He started his television career on the BBC in Autumn 2008 with What to Eat Now, a cookery programme based on his book of the same name. Valentine Warner trained as a portrait painter.) They designed the entire site as a mockup, and commissioned me to create a pixel-perfect build of the website from design; www.valentinewarner.com
How much do you charge?
Straight to the point – I like that! Well I believe in honesty and transparency. We don’t usually charge a one-size-fits-all service, so this depends all on the size of the website that you want, and what features you want the website to have. We start at £700 and if you are a small business or a sole trader, that may be enough for the entire web design, which comes with a free SEO report and optimisation on launch!
Ross on Wye is renowned for being the birthplace of the British tourism industry.
Ross-on-Wye is easily identifiable by its market house, and by St’ Mary’s Church steeple. Voted the UK’s best-loved town, Ross-on-Wye is situated on the River Wye, overlooking the Wye Valley, Forest-of-Dean and The Malvern Hills.
The Picturesque Wye Tour by Reverend Gilpin in the 18th century marked Ross-on-Wye as the ‘birthplace of the British tourism industry’. In 1972, William Gilpin’s (English artist – best known for originating the idea of the picturesque) book was published. ‘Observations of the River Wye” was Britain’s first tour guide, which featured an illustrated tour around Ross-on-Wye. Eventually, so much demand grew that by 1808 that they had eight boats making regular excursions down the River Wye, mostly hired from inns in Ross and Monmouth. (a side note about the town’s Inns; there was a lot of inns in Ross-on-Wye). By 1850 the town was well established as a tourist area, and more than 20 visitors had published their own accounts of the Wye Tour.
Other than its fabulous and beautiful River Wye, Ross and its shops can have a profound and endearing effect on its visitors. When I arrived here nearly 15 years ago, I thought this place was close to Disneyland in comparison to the North! In between that time and now, I’ve met many visitors to come to Ross, and quite a few people that had moved to retire.
It is obviously ideal for fishing, canoeing, and cycling. However, it is probably the best for photography. I’ve been able to obtain some unbelievable photography of wildlife on the river, and in particular insects such as Bees and Dragonflies which can be found on the very edge of the river.
The Market House hosts weekly markets, to showcase its local produce. The town hosts some music events, festivals and fairs as well as the Ross town carnival, most of which are situated along the banks of the River Wye, or in the picturesque Herefordshire countryside.
