It was a pleasure working with Denise and Martin. They paid attention to every detail and were very accommodating. They went above our expectations to help us as we are not technical in any way. Denise set up all the social streams, branded them and now helps manage our posts as we struggle to find the time. Martin has a huge amount of business knowledge and has brought it all together and online so we can now move forward with the right company look and feel. We would definitely recommend Keep It Simple Websites for value for money and most importantly ongoing customer service. More...

I used KIS Websites for my hairdressing website, I have increased my online booking requests and now can spend more time relaxing in the evening instead of returning loads of answerphone requests for appointments. I was cautious to start as I thought the business is only me, so do I need one but it has been worth every penny, getting the website right was key as I had seen a lot of self designed ones which may have been cheaper but not as professional as I have now. Thank You! More...

Really pleased with the service from KIS Websites. After a phone call, initial email and a quick 30 minute meeting with some simple questions, they were able to create a brand new, clean and easy to manage website for a lot less than what I was paying monthly. Their ideas were perfect to help me increase my commercial cleaning sector. They designed my logo and setup my Google page. I'm not into social media so this was a great help too as Denise set up everything I needed. They do exactly what the name says, Keep It Simple Websites, which is great for a non technical person such as me! Martin and Denise go that extra mile to help smaller businesses such as myself achieve a professional looking website with the min of fuss. If you're looking for help with your website or online marketing then I would definitely recommend them. Thank you again! More...

Q&As

Design and user experience, clean and uncluttered go towards a great website. Make sure everything works including all your links. Linking to your social streams can often keep the website fresh, make sure you follow your brand identity through.

What are you wanting to achieve from your social media campaigns or website? A good understanding of your business objectives, will undoubtedly make for a more successful social media campaign or website.

Meeting new startups and helping them achieve their dreams. The flexibility to work from anywhere in the world, or any coffee shop is also a bonus! I love the outdoor lifestyle come summer or winter!

Most social media and web design companies require you to copyright all the blogs, posts or pages, whereas I can help the smaller business owner with this whilst keeping it cost effective. I know what works and what doesn't, having worked with many businesses in different sectors from sport & fitness, the baby industry, IT, boutique hotels and beauty to name just a few!

I have an excellent knowledge and understanding of what really works with many years of practical experience wIthin different business sectors. I am flexible and willing to work hard to help you be successful.
