Alan Payne is a Consultant Herbalist & Naturopathic Iridologist, and works as a sole trader. He requested a fully responsive website to promote his services as a consultant herbalist, naturopathic iridologist and tutor/lecturer. Alan also requires effective organic search results with enhanced Search Engine Optimisation and social media automation and integration.
Helios Web Design is working with Alan to create a website based on the WordPress CMS platform that has a fresh responsive design, automated social network sharing functionality, Google Analytics (enabling Alan to monitor the effectiveness of the website and the ROI of online marketing campaigns) and effective SEO. The WordPress platform will enable Alan to easily update the content of the website whenever he wishes, although Helios Web Design will be happy to implement changes if requested.
Alan is involved throughout the design process and has had several design meetings to develop his website. He is also able to monitor the progress of the design on a testing domain. The website will be equipped with an auto posting feature that will post Alan’s blog posts to a number of social media platforms to improve his online exposure.
Helios Web Design will work with Alan to help him set up his own cost effective hosting contract to ensure that he is always in control of his online presence, help him adjust his DNS settings and set up his business email accounts on his computer and mobile devices. Helios will actively manage this site, ensuring that their website, theme, plugins and security measures are always up to date and will provide technical support and updates to content as and when required. The total cost of this website is commercially sensitive and has been kept private, but includes support for 12 months. Ongoing technical support, in year 2 and subsequent years will be set at a rate of £125 pa*.
* Any prices rises in subsequent years will be limited to the increase in the RPI.
