Freelance Web Designer Berkshire innovative • Professional • Reliable
Cheap or homemade websites like WIX and SQUARESPACE are everywhere – they come and go. If you’ve ever dealt with them you know how confusing and lifeless they can be! When a potential customer visits your website, you have from 4 to 7 seconds to grab their attention before they go back and start searching for someone else. This is where a freelance web designer can help your business stand out.
To succeed in a dynamic, evolving online marketplace, you need a responsive and captivating website design to grab your viewers’ attention and keep it! As a leading freelance website designer in Berkshire, I understand that this is not easy to do on a budget. I will design you a website that is both visually enticing and easy to edit, whilst making sure you won’t break the bank.

Berkshire Kitchen Design
Berkshire Kitchen Design contacted Dreamkatcha and asked if I could improve their website. Like many others, Jason had typed into google “web designers near me” and decided to click on the very top three results on the page. These are paid ads on Google, usually from very large web design companies in the UK. These agencies are usually not “near me” at all and have a landing page for every town in the country! As reflected in Jasons report, these companies often sub-out the work overseas, so that they can complete the enormous amount projects they acquire. Berkshire Kitchens were unsatisfied with the website this web design company had produced and extremely unhappy with the level of communication and support.
Jason then decided to search for “freelance web designers” in his area and came across Dreamkatcha. After a quick email correspondence, I helped Jason fix a few issues that he wasn’t getting any support for on his current website. Although the website was created in WordPress, the designers had used lots of unwieldy code and plugins which hindered anyone other than a professional web designer to edit the website.
Simplifying web design for my clients
Having now experienced a better level of customer service, Jason decided to ask Dreamkatcha for a complete redesign of his website. Not only had they changed three times as much money as Dreamkatcha, the website was in no fit state for Jason to edit or expand it. I visited Berkshire Kitchens and within a week we were well underway with the re-design. I listened carefully to Jason as he explained what he didn’t like about the previous website and how he would have liked it to appear originally.
Three weeks later, Jason and the team are extremely happy with the website and its new intuitive admin system. The website is also performing much better in search engine results due to the way it was constructed. Since the completion date, we have already received one nomination from Berkshire Kitchens to work on a colleagues start-up business venture in 2021.
SEO & Aftercare
I am now in the process of starting a local SEO campaign to help Berkshire Kitchens rank higher in Google for their chosen keywords and locality. The website continues to climb in Google rankings simply from a better platform that it was designed on and more attention to SEO details when contracting the website. With the new SEO campaign in place we expect the rankings to climb even higher. Thus bringing Jason a much better ROI on his web design investment, with more exposure and ultimately, more customers

Breath new life into your online workhorse with a brand new website design!
< DRAG >
One of the things my customers LOVE about their freelance web designer, is the aftercare.
Many of my clients have had dealings with web designers before and they are FAR from impressed, so they are delighted when they find how quick, friendly and helpful my aftercare and support is.
I won’t leave your emails sitting in an inbox or leave voicemails left unanswered. I understand that in today’s fast-paced world you need answers and results immediately, so I make sure your queries are dealt with as soon as I get them!
Search Engine Optimisation
SEO is built into every one of my websites from the ground up. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about not being found online. I understand that your website is a 24hr workhorse and the portal to potential customers, so I make sure I cross the t’s and dot the i’s when it comes to on-page SEO.
Website SEO has a natural evolution for all well-constructed websites. Search Engines recognise the thin line between organic and legitimate keywords and structure. It also recognises what is described as “spam”; adopting a zero-tolerance policy towards any suspicious activity. A blacklist or spam flag is imminent if the web designer is not experienced with modern SEO best practices.
DREAMKATCHA will design your website from the ground up with this in mind. Your site will be submitted to all search engines and have SEO rich content, which will help place you firmly in your desired search area online.

How the website design process works...
1. INITIAL MEETING
No Geeky Speak!
After our initial contact, I invite you to visit the studio and discuss your project in more detail. Here you can ask any questions (you may refer to this list of FAQ on my website) you have been jotting down in your notepad and see if I am the right fit for you.
I also have this web design project checklist for your convenience
2. OFF WE GO...
Turning Your Vision Into Reality!
So you like what I have to say and you decide to move forward with Dreamkatcha. At this stage, I invoice you 50% of the total cost of your project. This enables us to get started, building the back end of your website and thinking of design concepts.
3. CONTENT IS KING
Text & Images
Firstly I ask you to gather together all of the information you would like displayed on your website. If you have already written the copy for your website, that’s great! If you would like a little help I can assist you. In addition, I also require all of the images you have for the website.
Consequently, if you don’t have any, or would like some more professional shots I can assist you. I will recommend some good stock libraries or help you pick the most effective images for your website.
4. FIRST VIEW
Initial Web Design
At this stage I will have completed the back end of the website’s admin system. Afterwards I move on to designing the main front end of the website.
Once I am happy for you to view the homepage artwork I will send you a link to view your design. You can then give me the “all clear” to proceed with the rest of the website. Of course, If you have any major concerns these can be addressed before I continue.
Once the entire website is complete I will then ask you again to go through each page and section and give any feedback or amendments that you have for me. This could be a change of text or perhaps a change of imagery.
6. CLEAR FOR LAUNCH
It's The Big Day!
Once you are happy with everything we have produced, we are ready for the website launch. We will upload the site to a live server and notify all of the major search engines that you are ready to be discovered.
7. AFTERCARE & SUPPORT
Hosting, Email Services, Backups & Updates
Finally, If you have chosen our Managed Hosting Package you are now free to edit, expand and change your website. You can access the ease to use admin section and edit your content.
Of course, the safety of your website will be ensured by our first-class security systems. Likewise, you will also benefit from our daily backups of your website. Hence, should anything go wrong, you are always safe in the fact we can restore it for you instantly.
If required, we can create some training videos explaining how to edit each section of your website – simply ask us at any point if you don’t feel comfortable roaming around your website.
