About me

What an exciting, fast moving industry this is. Thankfully I started in a world of print, desk top publishing, long before the internet came along.

As the web grew, from simple HTML into the multitude of codes, scripts and software needed for todays websites, so has my knowledge needed for todays internet.

I build responsive, immersive, websites that work on all platforms, browsers and devices: mobile, tablet and desktop. Working daily with popular platforms like WordPress and Magento etc.

All of the sites I build are optimised for todays search engines ensuring that your site is displayed high in the natural listings.

As well as building full e-commerce websites, I can set-up, run and fully integrate your social media and if budgets allow can oversee your pay-per-click advertising campaigns. I can register your domain name along with managing the hosting of your website on our dedicated servers. If you already have a website then I can assist with amendments, hosting and general day-to-day management.

Whether it's a complex e-commerce web project using the latest web standards or a simple business card, I can help turn your ideas in to digital form.

David Rowlands

“Paul understood exactly what I wanted in a simple website that I could maintain myself in uploading different notebooks to sell. The website has been running successfully for 3 years now and I am also very grateful for his advice in a name change for the product which has a far greater relevance on search engines than the previous name!”

Sarah Rowlands

Paul was very approachable and proactive and suggested useful changes to navigation to make it user friendly. They also took care of my payments and encryption needs for sensitive information and all my requests were acted upon quickly and professionally. If you want a website or have a business idea and don’t know were start, this is the company to go to for a personal and bespoke service.”

Dr Mauri-Sole

“Paul Banyard has designed and managed four company websites, two author websites and several professional websites for me and has helped solve very many software problems. He has always been very speedy and helpful and always seems to be able to think up a quicker and cheaper way of doing things. He is good with the both the technical side of creating different kinds of sites and all the questions of design style, typographic, photography – and now knows how to deal with e-books and how to list them on Amazon and other sites.”

Jasper Becker
Legend Strategy Enterprises

“Paul helped us simplify our website by implementing a WordPress theme which made updating content far easier and a lot more manageable than our previous bespoke site. Paul always responds promptly, makes costs completely transparent and is a great problem solver who works hard to find solutions to any issue he is presented.”

Emma Burch
Simon's Cat

“If you are looking for someone to build your website, I cannot recommend Paul Banyard more highly. He is very skilled at what he does and efficient. Courteous, honest, and his prices are very competitive. He understood very quickly what I was trying to achieve. The one thing Paul does not do is to wrap the process of website building up in a mystery and then charge you a fortune for what he does. He will give you the tools that you need to manage your own site once it is finished so that you are not beholden to him for every little thing, but on the bigger stuff is right there to sort out if needed. Paul has been an invaluable help to me and continues to be so. You will regret going anywhere else.”
