Whatever your business or organisation, if you are going to be competitive and stand out from the crowd, you can’t afford to make the wrong impression with a shoddy website, and you can’t afford to be bankrupted by a big agency budget either.
You also can’t afford to waste time - you’ve got enough to do in your business, without having to chase web designers, or trying to work it all out yourself. Each of my clients has to stand out in their own market to attract their ideal customers. That’s why I create bespoke websites to suit their brand, budget and business goals.
If you are going to invest in a high quality, professional website for your business, you need to know that it will:
What I offer is a personal, bespoke service that is entirely focused on your business goals. What you get is a website that works in every sense of the word, designed and delivered on time and on budget.
Web Design: Websites that work. Engaging your ideal customers. Easy to use and accessible on all platforms, browsers, smartphones and tablets. Up to date with the latest technology, compliance and design styles. Designed to look good - and more importantly - make you look good. A site you’d be proud to promote and a site that boosts your business. Generating leads, enquiries and sales. Bottom line, a website that pays for itself and more.
Web Development: Want to be able to update your own web content? Take online bookings and process payments? Keep clients up to date with latest news, availability and special offers? Whether you need a full e-commerce solution or simple shopping cart, a contact management system or a content management system, I can select, create and adapt online apps and bespoke systems to get your website working harder and your business running smoother.
Print Design & Branding: Make more impact with a consistent design and message. Get all of your marketing materials working well together - logos, print media, flyers, leaflets, brochures, letterheads, posters, business cards and more - with the same eye-catching design.
Photography & Videography: Stunning imagery to show your business in its best light. People do business with people they know, like and trust. Start building real customer relationships on your website with real people, real products and real photos.
As a professional photographer with a wealth of experience working in both the private and public sector, I can advise, design and create advertising imagery, PR & business portraiture, team/staff photos, architectural exteriors & interiors as well as product and stock photography.
Social Media: Integrate your social media strategy with your website to get better results on both. If this is an unknown territory to you, I’m happy to give you a helping hand to get set up and advice on using it effectively to grow your business.
SEO Services: Search engines are the first place most people go to find solutions, buy products and hire services. Every website I design includes full “on-page” search engine optimisation. No tricks or gimmicks, just plain search engine friendly, so that the right people find you when they search for what you offer. I’m also happy to provide extra help and advice on generating more quality traffic to your website.
"Ian was professional and realistic and every aspect of the job was completed on time and the way we required. He communicated and asked for our feedback and was happy to implement new features as the need arose.
In the current climate this investment has kept us at the top of our industry and we have become more professional, leading the way as a tennis provider enabling clients to book online. It has reduced paperwork and made our admin much much easier. Quite simply the best investment we made was commissioning Ian to redesign and revamp our site." - Samantha Marsh, Ad Tennis
"As an ambitious start-up company we trusted Ian to develop our online shop. Ian's personable and meticulous approach gave us the website we desired.
Right from the original development of Tiesplanet.com, search engine optimisation has been fundamental to the business. Ian's on site SEO techniques helped Ties Planet reach the number one spot on Google both for generic keywords such as 'ties' and for long tail searches. Ian's work in our early days has certainly been one of the major factors in our growth to now being one of the UK's leading tie retailers." - Andrew Bragg, TiesPlanet.com
"We are very pleased with the new website that Ian has put together for us. We were fully involved at all stages of the design process and now have a website that works well for us both as an effective marketing tool and to provide existing customers with up do date information through the blog and social media integration.
The ability to update information on the website ourselves was a high priority and we now have a simple way to respond immediately to changing circumstances, keeping our customers informed about availability, special offers and our latest news." - John Thomson, Ingestre Arts
"We have been working with Ian for the last couple of years and in that time we have launched a new website which looks great and is easy for customers to navigate, this reflects in an improvement on the time visitors spend on the website as well as more enquiries via the website.
Ian also designed our brochures and logos in the same style as the website so we have the same look and feel throughout on all of our consumer facing material. Ian's turnaround time has always been very quick and often the same week. This has made my job very easy." - Jane Riley, Ryder Saddles
I'm Ian Egner and I work with all my clients personally. Some like to be involved at all stages of the design process. Some prefer to give a brief and hand it over. I’m happy for you to be as involved as you’d like to be, and will always work to your agenda and your goals.
Clients find me approachable, flexible and reliable, easy to get hold of and easy to work with. I’ll always reply to you as soon as possible and definitely within 24 hours.
You can count on me to listen, communicate, use plain English, welcome feedback, give advice, be clear about what to expect and be true to my word.
My skills and expertise are honed through 8 years of practical, professional experience with a proven track record and a well established client-base in the West Midlands and across the UK.
I am at my best working hands on with clients. You will see (further up this page) a portfolio of happy customers and business boosting websites.
As a business owner myself, I understand the demands of today’s climate, the need to be responsive, adaptive, up to date and competitive. Most of all, I understand that return on investment is key. Bottom line, every website has to generate business.
As a designer, developer and photographer, I take a creative and pragmatic approach to each website. I am passionate about technology - well versed in all the skills below - and always up to date with design trends to give you an original, memorable and engaging website that fits your business, your market and your purpose.
For the foreseeable future I will only be taking on a select few clients, but if you think you have an interesting project feel free to drop me an email and I'll see if I can help!
