Freelance Web Design Salford & Manchester

Web design without all the sales waffle!

Freelance Web Design Salford & Manchester! Roll up, Roll up – Get your Salford web design here! (old SEO trick) – Howdy website-chums! If you’ve arrived on this page I will leap to the conclusion that you are in the market for a website! And Heaven’s to Betsy -what a bonkers market it is, not unlike war torn Lisbon in 1942 – but instead of dodgy black market smugglers and untrustworthy double agents, you get dodgy web agencies and untrustworthy web designers – with a pricing scale so steep it’ll make Reinhold Messner lose sleep.

Yes, the competition is fierce out there, which is why I keep things as simple as possible.

Pin back your shell-likes and I’ll tell you how it works. You tell me what you want, I tell you how much it’s going to cost. Too expensive? I’ll tell you what we can do to make it more affordable. I also promise not to oversell you with guff – if you want a 10 page website with sliders and slide-ins and pop ups – but I think you only need a one page website with contact form – I shall tell you. And I won’t give you daft “guarantees” of first place in Google if I don’t feel it’s a possibility in your niche! They don’t call me Honest Jon for nothing.

How much does a website cost, anyway?

I’m tempted to say “how long is a piece of string?”, but that’s a cliche so I won’t. It’s Apple and Oranges! A website will cost different amounts depending on where you go and what you want. You could hire some guy in India who would make one for less than the price of a cod and chips, and that’s great if you’re not too fussed on quality! And you could go to one of the flash new agencies which spring up all the time on Manchester high street – also great if money is no object and you want to be oversold in every department.

A simple website for Joe Bloggs the plumber should not cost £3000!

Take a butchers at this nifty little pricing scale I’ve made to try and give you some idea of my average prices.

£199 +

A landing page, with contact form. Basic SEO

£399 +

A simple website up to 5 pages

£499 +

A larger website 5-10 pages, increased SEO

£599 +

Mega Website with all bells and whistles and frilly bits. E-Commerce

£1000 plus

A directory website or larger scale project

The Life and Times of a Freelance Web Designer in Salford

Wait – what does that badge say? Best Business of 2019? Top Three Rated? Why yes it does, thank you for noticing! I have been voted Best Web Designer in Salford for the past 4 years running. Only best web designer in Salford, not Manchester – or the UK come to that? I hear you scoff! Well I was based in Salford when I started out, so I guess that explains that! And the title of the best web designer in the UK is only a matter of time…

THE STORY CONTINUES…

My name is Jon Bardi, born and bred in Cheadle. Since then I’ve lived in Manchester, Salford, Bournemouth, Dublin, Australia, Spain, Manchester (again), Salford Quays and Italy (Sardinia). I now divide my time between Sardinia and Manchester (long story short – my girlfriend is Italian.) I guess you could call me an “Internet Nomad”. I started designing websites in college waaaay back in 2000 (remember dreamweaver?).

I have been working as freelance web designer since my pet hen Harry was an egg (he’s 7 now).

But does any of that really matter? As long as you get a low cost, beautifully designed website, I could be the child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for all you care!*

I cannot recommend Jon and Cayenne Pepper Web Design highly enough and if I’m ever in need of another website, he will definitely be my first call!”

    We literally cannot thank Jon enough. From day one, all the way through the whole process until we launched, Jon was there every step of the way. Having that piece of mind took so much stress out of our situation. We had so many unforeseen set backs due to a third party requiring us to change our website so many times, and Jon was able to talk us through how we can achieve these changes and talked us through our options. If you are looking for a web developer who is transparent, honest and will get the job done, look no further. We are so happy that we used Cayenne Pepper Design for our site. We absolutely love the results. We cannot speak highly enough . Thank you so so much Jon! Rob and Ruth!

    If I could give more stars then I would. Jon was fantastic from start to finish and was a pleasure to deal with. Nothing is too much trouble and he explains things clearly without the jargon. He produced a website that was perfect for what I needed without any up-selling. He responds quickly to all communications and I thoroughly recommend him. I’ll be using him again for my next website.

    Jon recently designed a website for my counselling practice. I am extremely happy with the results, as it looks professional, covers all the content that I asked for and I am proud to send my link to prospective clients. Jon is very friendly, able to answers any questions you have and works fast and efficiently to requested deadlines.. I can thoroughly recommend his service and have already done so.

    Jon was recommended to me through a friend. I got in touch and he turned out to be very reliable and professional, always responding to my emails without any delays. He discussed various options with me to ensure that the website suited my needs in the best possible way. He created a beautiful website for my business in a very short time. I would not hesitate to recommend Jon. I am very happy with his product.

    I cannot fault Jon's work, he's been brilliant. I was using a design studio who were charging me so much to make even the smallest changes to my website. Jon's rates are too cheap in my opinion for the outstanding work he produces! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jon to anybody looking for a reliable and talented web designer.

    Jon is brilliant to work with, he has helped me no end with websites where I have been struggling to get them to look/work the way I want them to with my limited knowledge. He responds really quickly and always has the answer I need :) I hope to be working with him a lot more.

    If you want a web designer who cares about the client, where they wish to go and with the talent to deliver a quality website in a timely and professional manner, look no further than Jon and Cayenne Pepper design. He exceeds expectation and seems to intuitively understands not only what you ask for but also what you don’t. I couldn’t recommend Jon highly enough. His service offerings are to be marveled at.

    Jon was exactly the person we looked after for Sunset Immobiliare to create a perfect new website for us. Jon knows exactly what the customer needs. He helps to make the right choice and to respond to the personal wishes and implement perfectly. He is very fair and always tries to solve the problems immediately. This in all phases before, during and after the creation. A true professional whom we will warmly recommend. He will surely make all our web pages also in the future. Very well done. Thank you very much till to the next.
