Websites for Your Business
Shake and Speare specialises in creating websites for businesses that want to make the most of their online world. We make the process straight forward, no nonsense and as little stress as possible. Because having a website shouldn’t be a headache, it should be simple.
That’s what we do. Professional web design. We work to get you online, get your business in front of potential customers and get leads or sales coming your way.
A Quick Call
We’ll arrange a quick 10-minute call to let us learn more about your business (such as what you do and the areas you serve). We’ll also ask for any photos and logos you might already have.
We Get Started
After learning what you’re after, we begin the design process using our own development site. You’ll be able to check in and see what you think as we go. You’ll also get each page sent for approval.
When we think we’re done, you’ll get the chance to look over your whole site and check you’re happy with it. We’ll also get our team to check everything is working as it should be!
Site Goes Live
We’ll manage the whole process of getting your site onto your address of choosing and get it live. We’ll also make sure it is submitted to Google so it can begin climbing the ranks!
What do I get as standard?
First things first, you get us! You get the Shake and Speare team at your disposal throughout the whole build. We’re a really nice bunch, and will happily help out with all sorts of things. Even if it’s not directly related to your site.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose a Shake & Speare website?
We understand both what you need to get from your website and what your potential customers are looking for.
Our sites are simple to use, easy to keep updated and act as the perfect window into your business. In fact, they’re so straight forward to use that we’ll train you on how to update it yourself if you’d prefer!
Need to sell products? We love building eCommerce sites and will happily advise on the best way forward.
And seeing as our 1 page websites don’t cost you anything at all… well it’s worth seeing what we can do!
Why do I need to bother with SEO?
We’ve clarified this in a few recent blog posts. SEO is important if you’re genuinely looking to grow your online presence and if you want your business to rank for your services in your area. Without it, your site is unlikely to climb that high on Google, let alone page 1.
That said, every site that we deliver has the foundations of SEO included, so you’ll have the best possible start.
How do I know I’ll like my website?
We always ask you to provide us with as many sites that you already like the look of as possible, that means we’re already singing from the same hymn sheet before we even start designing.
We then send you over a draft homepage to see what you think before launching into the rest of the design. It’s a little more work than just using a template, but it means that your website is truly unique.
What will my website include?
The features in your website are entirely up to you. You might want some pricing calculators to allow instant estimates for example. Or you might want to sell products (physical or virtual) direct through your website – if that’s the case we’ll advise you best on what eCommerce setups you’ll need.
Every site includes clickable phone numbers, email addresses and a contact form linked to your email address as the minimum. Then we can discuss further features as you see fit.
You’ll also get an SEO plugin, Google Analytics and an epic speed optimisation set up meaning your site will load lightningly fast.
How much are your websites?
They start from completely free, that’s for our one pagers, they’ll get your foot in the online door. All you pay for is your domain.
The many people we work with choose the 5-page development sites that would cost £500 with standard features.
Those in a position to really accelerate their online world, grow their business or sell online can choose the full website builds, these start from £750 and scale from there. Prices vary depending on exactly what you need so it’s always worth a chat.
We always suggest you contact us for a full proposal which is completely no-obligation and free.
Who builds my website?
We do it ourselves! None of this automated template rubbish. Our in house team builds it, usually Grant, Grey and Julian get together and work on the sites together, so you can expect to talk to any of us during the process.
