Why Forthweb

Straightforward websites from East Lothian web designer

Trying to run a business without a website is like trying to run a business without a telephone. If you want to reach all of your potential customers then having a website is crucial. That is why the vast majority of businesses in the UK now have one. If you have a business you don’t just need a website you require one.

Forthweb are an East Lothian web design company and we can build you a site so that your business will be found by many new potential customers using the internet. Our low cost web sites may be extremely affordable but they are also optimised to be found by the major search engines.

Affordable and Optimised …

Affordable and optimised Websites with no extra hidden costs. Built in East Lothian near Edinburgh

Forthweb is based in Aberlady, East Lothian looking out onto Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. We have been building and designing bespoke websites since 2009. There are many Edinburgh web designers and East Lothian web designers but unlike much of the competition I am not only self taught but have also learned the latest techniques in Web Design at College.

At Forthweb I can design and build your website from scratch, take pictures to include in your site, or if more professional content is required call on professional photographers.

No promises that we cannot keep

Design of a normal size responsive wordpress website of approximately 6 pages costs approximately £500. If you currently have a non mobile-friendly website then we can convert it to a responsive design from £350. For larger or more complex sites I will give you an extremely competitive price.

If you require an E commerce site then contact me for a quote.

No hidden web design charges

There are no extra hidden charges in our web design. Other web designers might give you a cheaper quote but then charge more for basic things like “adding keywords”, “adding a sitemap”, “submitting your site to Google”, “creating a banner slideshow”, “creating a Facebook page” all these things are included in our price.

At Forthweb that is all just part of the service

Included in any website package for an Edinburgh, Lothian or Borders based website is a free listing on our Lothian Links website. Normally costing £10 a year.

Single Page website from £100

At Forthweb we have a variety of packages to suit every kind of customer. Our websites start with our one page site at only £100. Ideal for creating an initial holding page if you are just starting out. It gives you a 12 month presence on the web with a .co.uk domain name and E mail address. All for only £100.

(Note Hosting, Maintenance and Edinburgh SEO are charged in addition to the Web Design.)

Search Engine Optimisation

At Forthweb we can also optimise your website so that it appears in search engine results. Check out our SEO site at Forthseo for further information. There is no need to go anywhere else after we have built your website.

We will carry out basic optimisation to give your website a “jump start” when constructing your site but we can also carry out more in depth work for a monthly fee.
