Paul Keating | Website Design and MarketingCertificate of Excellence 2019
Braintree, Essex(3 Reviews)
Hello and welcome, my name is Paul Keating and I have been designing websites ever since they first arrived in the early 90’s and they have come a long way since then. Website design has become cheaper and more accessible to anyone and everyone that would like an online presence.
I specialise in providing websites created using WordPress which is the number 1 Content Managed System (CMS) platform in the world, in fact 25% of all websites are developed using WordPress.
Even though the platform itself is free, a lot of creativity and work goes on behind the scenes in order to make your website a fully functional work of art, not only designed to make it easy to update and change content, but can be graphically manipulated to capture the hearts and minds of your audience the way you want it to.
Aside from Website design and Logo creation, I also provide excellent print services and website maintenance. I can integrate your website with whatever form of social media you like and install a blog element to keep your customers updated. E commerce websites are also are my specialty and I can help you provide all the legal elements to compliment your work such as Terms, Cookies and that all important SSL certificate to give you added credibility and security.
Paul Keating | Website Design and Marketing
What makes a great website?
Excellent, regular communication and a thorough understanding of the clients needs is crucial before you even start on the design process. Ensuring that the clients corporate image and identity remains constant is paramount and that the content conveys exactly what the client wants to put forward, mixed with an understanding of how keywords work in that content is also down to understanding how the website will progress. A website is never finished entirely, by this I mean that everyone's goals change over time. Having website maintenance is built into my website design process and pricing to make it as future proof as possible and also keeping the content and structure fresh to keep it in the focus of the search engines.
If you want eye catching easy to find websites that will give you positive results then I am most certainly who you want to be talking to !
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
Time frame in which the project needs to be started and when the client needs the website launched.
What content have you created so that we can integrate the keywords and think about onsite SEO so that the site will be found.
What images would you like to use? Do you have your own ? or would you like me to supply stock images? Your own images of course work better, however its not always easy to get these quickly. Larger images the better as its easier to downscale than upscale.
Would you like training on your website to add your own content ? With WordPress this is a lot easier than having a bespoke coded website where you are at the mercy of the web designer to do all this for you at a large extra cost.
Do you have a budget in mind ? If price is important to you then I offer packages for pay monthly if this is something you find useful.
Do you need hosting for your website? I can provide this for you...
Do you need email and email services ? such as provision, anti spam aliasing ...etc
What do you love most about your job?
I love watching and hearing my clients reaction to the finished article. I always get positive reviews on my work and I don't stop until the client is happy. Being able to create a work of art and watch it take shape and hearing that the business is booming is music to my ears !
I also love being able to provide everything that the client needs without them having to shop in 3 or 4 different places and getting all confused.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I have always enjoyed designing websites since they first came out. Being able to provide an online presence to those that thought it would be hard work or impossible is the greatest feeling ever. People often come to me for help and assistance rather than the large faceless agencies because they know that they get value for money and sensible advice without costing the earth.
Why should our clients choose you?
I like to think that my clients comments show and demonstrate my commitment to providing the best value websites and print design. I Listen carefully to what is needed and provide a balanced view on all subjects. I try to become as knowledgeable in my clients field of business as possible so that I can convey the information on their website accurately and precisely. I am not the cheapest in the industry but I am certainly not the most expensive. I provide a pay monthly option for those on a strict budget and provide email and hosting to compliment my many offerings.

T and T reclaimed Tiles Essex
This was a quick and simple website needed as an emergency for a client who had a website designed by a designer who disappeared off the face of the earth, leaving the client stranded and without a website. I created this within 4 days and provided hosting with a fresh domain name- I had it ranked on page one of Google surprisingly fast. https://www.reclaimed-rooftiles.co.uk/
Braintree Loyalty Card
I designed and created this website as a project to help regenerate business and footfall in my own town. This site is in the process of being handed over to a business person who has the potential to take the idea forward. It has an incorporated directory feature added to the sub domain for businesses to add their own link to the directory. https://braintreeloyaltycard.co.uk/

A local magician from Malden in Essex. I was blown away by this mans talent and quickly we came up together with how he wanted to portray his image. He was as impressed with his website as I was with his magic ! http://lukeenseymagician.co.uk/
Diamond Cleaning London
I have known this client for years and he simply asked me to help him out with a small website to advertise his business for him. His needs have grown alongside his business and I now provide all his printing and design needs for his business. Built with wordpress like most of my websites and incorporates a simple booking feature. http://rapidmaintenanceuk.com/
AVA Sports Bedford
This client required two full E Commerce Solutions that tied in together from an established database of products. Built with Wordpress and Woo Commerce- these two sites took 3 months to build from start to finish. https://www.avasports.com/ https://avasports.co.uk/
VIVA PILATES Thurrock
This word press website is the second version of my clients website. Using wordpress and Woo commerce it was also my first attempt at E commerce and the client was very impressed. The site took 3 months to build from scratch. I love this site ! https://www.vivapilates.co.uk/
Dorvics Cycles Leighton Buzzard
The owner of this shop was a referral from a happy client. They needed a simple front end with a news feed and the ability to link to an offline E commerce solution called ECWID. The client handled all of the shop additions and I took the design from a MOBIRISE site that the client built, however as the Mobirise site could not connect with ECWID, I rebuilt it all following the clients exact brief with wordpress and we all feel it worked out brilliantly. https://www.dorvicscycles.co.uk/
