Simple websites for small budgets

There are many, many organisations out there, from small charities, to churches, to start-ups, that cannot afford an all-singing, all-dancing website. At least not to begin with. And when that's the case, we can certainly help.

The Robin Centre

Over the years we have designed and built many small-scale website. The Robin Centre is a very good example. They needed to get their message out, especially to people searching online for a local day care centre for older people, but didn't have a large budget to play with. We were able to meet with them, find out their specific requirements, and design and build a very clean and simple website, beautifully showcasing their work. We trained the staff in how to manage the site, and we also carried out a half-day search-engine-optimisation overhaul, to give them the best possible start with Google.

Together with God

This was a very nice little project. We not only designed and printed the Together with God book, we also built a mini book site so people could quickly and easily purchase copies of the book online. We also stock the book, regularly supplying Amazon, Gardeners and other publishing outlets.

Karis Neighbour Scheme

This is an excellent example of actually how little you need in order to be able to project a professional image of your work. Karis had hoped to be able to get a much larger budget for their site design, but when this fell through, they still needed a site, and we were able to help. Based around the six core things that they do, the site clearly and professionally shows prospective clients and funding agencies the full extent of their work.

We'll keep adding to this list as we design more sites. Here's the first:
