When it comes to your website, do you really know what you’re doing?

It’s so easy and cheap to DIY your own website, it seems like a no brainer for solo businesses. But it takes valuable time, is trickier than it first seems and you can’t be sure the results are as good as they could be.

Simply put you don’t know, what you don’t know. And that could cost you clients.

Paying a designer or agency to do everything for you can be scary, expensive and take forever. And again the results can vary enormously. 

What we do is combine the best of both worlds – “Done WITH you”.

Nice things people say 

Over the years we've helped dozens of businesses and organisations with their WordPress websites - here's what some of them say about us

    "Chris helped us transform Birthrights’ website, which was in huge need of an update and refresh. Chris was expert, efficient, clear and very patient with our many questions. Perfect for a small charity and highly recommended!"

    "Chris at Very Simple Sites is brilliant at explaining technical things in a way you understand. The changes he advised led to an immediate rise in enquiries and business – it was spectacular. I thought I could learn if I Googled things, but I wish I had spoken to Chris sooner and made the changes earlier. Highly recommended."

    "Chris has freed me of my website-maintenance anxiety and helped me to stop wasting my precious time on trying to solve technical issues myself. Just what I needed!"

    "His responses to my panic calls are above and beyond.He is the ONLY computer expert that has ever been able to talk me back from being utterly lost in the wilderness of technology!"

    "Within a month my website looked so much better and already people were better able to find me. Chris understood what I needed and very patiently worked with me the whole time, alleviating any fears and smoothing any bumps in my journey."

    "From the initial meeting to discuss requirements, through to the finished user-friendly and easily maintainable site, Very Simple Sites have delivered an excellent service, and continue to add value as the site develops to match our changing needs”.

You deserve a website that helps you prosper

Talk about getting one

Imagine having a website you could really feel confident about. One that you could trust to attract the right clients, makes you look good in your community and that doesn't sap valuable time and energy.

Your passion to help people and need to earn a reliable income means you need an effective online presence. A vital part of that is having a professional website. However, although modern tools make that easy, getting a truly effective website on your own is much harder than all the adverts would have you believe. Struggling with website builders eats into your valuable time and the end result is often disappointing.

Solo business owners like you deserve a great website that gets you clients and empowers you to ‘do your thing’.  

We’ve seen the struggles you have when it comes to websites and understand the support you need to get a well written and attractive site up and running.

Our service is designed to be clear and simple. We’ll hold your hand through all the steps to launching your new site and then be on hand to make sure things continue working well.

A risk free process

It's really easy to get started - pay a deposit. If you're unhappy, we'll give it back.
Setup fees start at around £750 including ( including risk fee deposit of 25%) plus a monthly fee for hosting and site care.

Listen & discover

Once you sign up and pay your deposit, you’ll get access to a questionnaire so we can get the information we need to build your site. We might also ask to have a chat.

Build & review

We’ll sort out all the content, design and build a ‘first draft’ of your website and work with you to perfect it. You can edit the content as much as you need. Pay the first balance  at this stage.

Frequently asked questions

There is a lot to deal with when properly sorting out your website. We aim to make it as simple as possible

Ask a question
  • How does the refundable deposit work?

    If you decide you’re not happy at the ‘first draft’ stage you can request a refund and we’ll part company on good terms.

  • What if I’m not happy after that?

    Talk to us. We’ll do our best to fix things or come to an amicable agreement

  • How long is the contract?

    Once the site is launched the contract is a rolling 30 day contract, which you can cancel at any time

  • What happens if I cancel my subscription?

    You will have until the end of the current month to copy your content before the site goes offline. You can take your content (ie all the words) with you but you won’t be able to easily move the complete site due to licensing restrictions for stock photos and plugins.

  • Do you offer domain names?

    Yes, you can buy a domain name when you pay the balance of the setup fee. If you already have a domain name, you can transfer it to us or update the nameservers at your registrar.

  • I already have a site, can you just copy that?

    We can certainly use it as a starting point but we’ll probably start from scratch and aim to improve on what you had.

  • Can I edit the site myself

    Yes. You can edit text and images. We’ll provide all the info and support so you can do that easily. But we’re also available to add content for you within your monthly plan.

  • Can I design the site myself

    Not really. As said above you can edit text and images but beyond that your power to change the site is limited – we’re here to do that for you. If you want to use up your free time playing around with colours, fonts and layout, then maybe Wix or Squarespace is for you.
