After you've had a read about us, take a look at our Website Design pages to see the end results.

Honesty, Flexibility and Reliability

At EasierThan Website Design we offer a flexible and honest approach to web design. We want our customers to go away and tell others how great we are, NOT complain that they've splashed out for something that isn't what they expected.

Before quoting, we offer a free 1 to 2 hour consultation at which we will provide an honest evaluation of your needs, even if it means suggesting that a website from us is not the ideal solution!

The price we quote will be what we believe is required for a website to achieve your desired end results, most commonly the generation of additional sales calls.

Where money is tight, we will always try to offer you the choice of low cost alternatives, alongside any "bells and whistles" solution. However, rather than taking your money and running, if we don't think you can achieve your aims with your available budget, we will tell you.

And unlike a lot of web companies out there, we're not a "hit and run" outfit who lose interest once payment has been taken. We always answer emails and respond to phone calls promptly and you will be able to make changes to the site a few years down the line.

If you've been let down before, why not give us a try?

Focus On Results

EasierThan Website Design offer Functional Web Design with an emphasis on usability and end results. We aim to produce websites that look good, but where content, rather than aesthetics are the main driving force.

The main focus of conversations with yourself won't be therefore, what font you want for the site, the colour scheme, fancy gimmicks or flashy effects. Google and other search engines don't care about those things.

Instead, we'll be asking you what you hope to achieve, what products or services you offer, what the competition for those services is and discussing how best to ensure your website achieves a good position in Google for likely search terms.

Our focus will be on generating sales leads and giving the potential customer an informative, useable, easy to navigate website that encourages them to pick up the phone.

Less Jargon

We can't promise you no jargon, but we will make every effort not to bamboozle you with techno-babble. Wherever possible, we will explain things clearly in lay-persons terms.

Unlike many less scrupulous web designers, we don't use jargon to extract money for things you don't need!

As you look round this website therefore, you won't see a lot of the technical stuff you find on other web designer's sites. Why? EasierThan Website Design have all the necessary knowledge and skills, but we don't believe you should have to learn them all too!

We understand that as a business, a website is a means to an end. Let us take care of the technical side of things, leaving you free to concentrate on your day job.

Reasonable Pricing

EasierThan Website Design believe that you can produce a good website that gets results for a reasonable price.

We're not the cheapest, but we're certainly not the most expensive. As above, the difference with ourselves is what you get for your money.

The price we quote is for a full package including a website front-end, quality content that is bespoke to you and efforts to gain a reasonable position on Google or to achieve whatever other aims you might have.

As each solution is tailored individually therefore, there is no true average price for a website and indeed, you should be wary of anyone offering fixed low prices as to what you will get for your money.
