Professionally-built websites are set to become an affordable option for small businesses thanks to Telford website experts.
The team who run isev, an award-winning website design company, recognised the need for a new business called Procredible to combine the design and professionalism of a high-end website, with an affordable price for smaller enterprises.
Procredible provides an alternative to the options available, for example, self-built systems which are cheap but lack the eye of an experienced designer, or something along the lines of a Yell website which is often more expensive, can miss out on essential design principles, and may have limited or non-existent options to self-edit the website.
Because Procredible has been set up by people who have worked with large brands like WH Smith and Funky Pigeon, it means smaller businesses can benefit from their advice, guidance and expertise on professional website structure and many other aspects of an effective website — all without the usual lump sum of an upfront cost, making it much more accessible to small businesses.
Procredible has already seen success with tradesmen, hairdressers, small manufacturers and professional business services, with impressive results.
Managing Director Leon Blair explained there were many start-up costs for new businesses and that they were often unable to afford the price of a professionally-designed website or expert advice, and would instead either end up with a very basic online offering – or in some cases no website at all.
He added: “We know when companies are first starting out, they don’t necessarily have the funds to be able to afford a ‘top of the range’ website. Even if they’ve been established for a while, smaller businesses still struggle with the outlay that can be involved with designing a website which is sleek as well as functional.
“Smaller businesses don’t have the deep pockets of larger companies and so can end up losing out on customers as a result of an amateur or outdated website – or in some cases a complete lack of online presence. We want to level that playing field, to give hard-working sole traders and SMEs the chance to compete online.”
