Our aim is always to deliver beautiful, functional, hassle-free websites that engage your audience and convert prospects into customers.
Collett Creative is a website design company based in Bury St Edmunds.
We build attractive, functional websites for our customers and then teach our customers how to get the most out of their new website.
We offer a complete ongoing service meaning once you work with us you will be able to contact us anytime for further help with your site.
We are here for our customers, and we want to make sure they have the best possible experience with their website.
Tired of security updates, hosting issues, plugins that break and a site that needs constant attention to work? There is a better way!
What Do You Get from Us?
You get us! We will share all our knowledge and expertise with you. We won't just build you a website but work closely with you to get your online presence working as effectively as possible. We create attractive websites with intuitive navigation so that your site visitors and search engines can easily find your content and understand your message. Our websites are always easy for both you and your visitors to use. We don't do fancy flashy animations or gimmicks but focus our efforts on producing simple, clean website design.
HOW WE WORK
Our job is to help, support and collaborate with you to create a website that works for your business, converts website visitors into customers and showcases the very best of what you do.
We won't just drop a website on your lap and say "there you go!". The approach we take to the work we do for our clients is both thoughtful and pro-active and one where we are always looking for the best way to achieve your objectives. We will work with you experimenting with different ways to create a website that fulfils your initial goals and effectively engages with your target audience.
We say "initial goals" as a website is a living breathing thing. Your site will change as your business grows and you become more familiar with your audiences wants and needs. Luckily we will always be here for you to discuss the future development of your website and assist you to the best of our abilities offering you our knowledge and expertise.
We will take our time. We are not interested in taking on work with tight deadlines. That would be foolish and would always result in a poorly thought out and planned website.
We also understand that you do have commitments and time constraints and will always do our very best to find a solution that suits everyone.
We build with Squarespace (a hosted website CMS platform) because it requires virtually no maintenance or intervention to keep functioning making your experience with your website a much more hassle-free and happy one.
WHAT DOES USING SQUARESPACE MEAN FOR YOU?
As we are Squarespace Circle Members, you get 20% discount off your subscription to Squarespace for the first year.
Squarespace trial period usually lasts 14 days, but as Squarespace Circle Members we get a six month free trial period meaning if the project takes longer than 14 days to complete you don't pay any hosting fees until we are ready to launch the site.
Squarespace offers a large selection of beautifully designed website templates. These make excellent starting points for your website design, and with the addition of custom code, these are often all that is needed to create a brilliant and cost-effective website. Of course, entirely custom design sites can be built with Squarespace too!
With Squarespace, there is no threat of harmful plugins breaking or disrupting your website speed. All the software used by your website is created by Squarespace for Squarespace only making it extremely reliable and secure.
Squarespace templates are all fully responsive by default so they will look great when viewed on any device.
No need to ever perform software updates or backup your site as Squarespace takes care of all this for you. If you ever accidentally delete a page by mistake, you can quickly retrieve and restore it to your website right from within the admin area.
If you don't understand SEO (Search-Engine-Optimisation), it is not a problem. Squarespace takes care of it and makes SEO a breeze to understand and implement.
We will offer you all the support you need throughout and after the website goes live, but once we deliver the completed site to you, you become the site owner and are free to manage, maintain and grow your site as you see fit. You will also have access to Squarespace's excellent 24/7 support service which is all included in your hosting fee.
The Squarespace admin area is so simple and intuitive to use updating your blog, and website pages stops being a chore and starts to become a fun thing to do.
Of course, if you don't want to manage your website yourself, we do offer ongoing support including content creation and blog posting where needed.
You will end up with a beautiful and well-structured website that simply works.
