What our customers say about us

Our new and engaging website reaches not only local but national coverage. The effective design layout and engagement by users has enabled Menta, the Suffolk Enterprise Agency, to significantly raise its profile and web presence. This was a contributory factor in Menta winning the national ‘future of enterprise award’. The attention to detail and precision has led to a relationship that has delivered excellent results on time and to budget, in a business centric manner.

Alex Till, Menta Chief Executive

Our work with Essiem was to design a website that is unique in structure but captivating in style, they managed to achieve where others have tried and failed. We are not an easy company to work for as we are very specific and nit-picky in what we are wanting to achieve but the patience and attention to detail that Tom provided was and still is amazing. A terrific person to work with and a continuing relationship with new adventures to look forward to in the future.

Callum Cook, USystems Marketing Executive

You soon realise how important it's going to be to get the right person for your business. Someone you feel at ease with, who isn't trying to over sell you or bamboozle you with tech jargon. Tom was pleasant and easy to talk to right form the start. He wasn't the cheapest person we spoke to but we liked him and felt he understood our business. He took our instructions and came up with a comprehensive redesign that gives the website a cohesion it never had before. Since then Tom has produced brochures for us following the themes developed for the website. Not only has Tom produced a get new brand identity for Architecture Workshops, but knowing I have a professional on board who I can trust with the website SEO, Social Media Marketing etc allows me to concentrate on developing the actual workshops we run in schools.

Martin Jennings, Architecture Workshops Director

Since going live and even though we have more pages to add, I have received unanimous approval from members in the Citizens’ Senate - and I know these people are hard to please!! So, I would like to thank Essiem Ltd and you personally, for your support and guidance in helping us achieve our aspirations. I know that occasionally we were quite demanding, but you always maintained a polite and professional approach, whilst seeking to guide and encourage. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with you and I look forward to working with you on the next phase.

Trevor Fernandes, Chair EoE Citizens’ Senate

DigiCAD Ltd first approached Essiem with an idea for a website. Essiem not only turned this idea into a great website they helped us shape our online business and truly define our brand identity. We couldn't recommend them enough, thanks again for all of your help!

Tim Winwood, Director DigiCAD Limited

I could not recommend Tom enough, he guided me through every stage of preparing the website, being very patient and understood the look I wanted very quickly. Very very happy with the end result. I like the fact that the service is ongoing to ensure the website always looks fresh.

Tracy Minns, i-Accounting

Tom took the time to understand the intricacies of our business in doing so it enabled them to produce a site that met our spec in terms of content, functionality and looks without having to go back and forth and continually with alterations and missing features. Couldn’t be happier.

Chris Whiteman, Insignis Cars

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, this is all sounding great and I have some quick questions...

Yes it really is just a monthly payment, which starts from £49+VAT per month (depending on what you need from your website) with no additional upfront fees.

For established businesses we ask for no minimum term or contract length, as we are commited to working with you long term. As we put a lot of effort and time into our work, we may ask for new businesses to sign up for a 12 month term.

After speaking with your website designer you will be sent a link to setup a direct debit online with our easy to use secure online form.

All of our pay monthly websites come with our standard maintenance contract which includes from 1 hour a month of changes and updates and this can be rolled over up to a maximum of 3 times. Most people find this is plenty of time for all routine website updates, content updates etc.

All minor design and content changes are included in your monthly payment. To make it as easy as possible, just send any change you wish to make to your dedicated manager and we will make the changes for you.

Yes of course, blogging is a great way to promote your company and improve your organic (free) search engine results. All our websites have blogging capability and we will provide you with training on how to use the system so you can add your blog posts yourself. We also include from 1 hour per month of support if you ever need any help with your blog.

Yes. All Essiem designed pay monthly websites are mobile-responsive as standard. With over 60% of internet activity now taking place on smartphones and tablets a responsive website is essential.

If you don’t have a logo yet or would like yours to be updated that’s no problem. We provide a full branding service and can do this for a one-off fee or can increase your monthly payments slightly to cover logo design and branding – this can be as little as £5 a month – please contact us and we will give you an accurate quote based on your needs.

Amazing, sounds great.
Where do I sign up?

Is a pay monthly website for you?

  • You would prefer to keep your cash flow balanced across the year
  • You want to invest in a high quality design and development, but without paying the full balance up front
  • You want more for your business than a cheap budget site or templates
  • You value a good service - face to face meetings and good relationships with your designer
  • You see the advantage that a professionally designed website will give your business

If you want to invest in a high-quality website design but without paying the full balance upfront then its worth considering a pay monthly website. For many companies, the initial outlay for a professional website can be difficult, perhaps you don’t have the balance spare at the moment, you're investing your cashflow elsewhere, or maybe you are just starting out and want more for your business than a cheap DIY starter website.

That’s why we offer a pay monthly website option on all our websites. Our pay monthly websites are exactly the same as our normal website design projects except we break down the cost over a period of time that you feel happy paying.

How does a pay monthly website work?

1

Request your design consultation with your senior website designer.

Complete the form online and we will confirm your booking time by email within 24 hours.

2

Have your design consultation with your senior website designer

Talk with your website designer on the phone about what you are looking to achieve with your website and what you would like it to look like. They will then explain how we will achieve this for you and go over the next steps.

3

Review and approve the website design

We will send you initial design concepts to comment and review before signing off on the final design

4

Your website goes live!

We will develop the website and make it live for the public. We then perform our post-launch tests and optimisations to ensure your website is the best it can be. We then show you how you can manage your website and how you can contact your project manager for further support requests.

Amazing, sounds great. Where do I sign up?
