Graeme recently helped me in the development of a new website. This project was from scratch and I cannot recommend Graeme highly enough. He was willing to listen to my thoughts and ideas, offer his expert opinions on those ideas and work collaboratively to develop something I'm proud of. Graeme worked with me each step of the way and guided me on how the systems worked so now I am confident in the maintenance of my site. Graeme is a pleasure to work with. - Dr Chris Platts, chrisplatts.co.uk

I can build you the perfect website

It started with WordPress

Having worked with WordPress for over a decade, I became frustrated by its limitations:

πŸ‘Ž Stale design
πŸ‘Ž Cluttered editor
πŸ‘Ž Slow load speeds
πŸ‘Ž Reliance on paid-for plugins

WordPress doesn't really know what it is for - it's for anything and so doesn't do one thing well.

I looked at other platforms such as Squarespace, Wix and Webflow but they didn't cut it either.

Then I found Ghost and everything changed.

Introducing Ghost

Ghost runs over 3,000,000 websites. Take a look:

Ghost: The best open source blogging platform
Beautiful, modern publishing with email newsletters and paid subscriptions built-in. Used by Platformer, 404Media, Lever News, Tangle, The Browser, and thousands more.

Ghost was created to focus on professional publishing. The benefits of using Ghost are:

βœ… A modern interface and themes to choose from that look 2024, not 2004
βœ… Open source (Ghost also run their own hosting service - Ghost Pro)
βœ… Outstanding security
βœ… 1,900% faster than WordPress
βœ… Minimalist editor with rich features (you'll love writing again)
βœ… No plugins are needed to capture email addresses, manage and communicate to subscribers
βœ… Easily send posts and newsletters to subscribers and see open rates
βœ… No need for an email client as posts are sent via Ghost's servers (if hosting with Ghost Pro)
βœ… Label subscribers so you can send posts to specific groups or individuals
βœ… Lock off content to encourage readers to subscribe to premium posts
βœ… Make money from your content by setting prices for up to three tiers that subscribers can choose from to access premium content
βœ… Payments linked to Stripe

πŸ‘
Throughout the process, we will meet online so that you are involved in all aspects of the design process. I will also show you how to manage all aspects of your website so that you are confident in its use at the point of sign-off.

Get paid for your content

Ghost also has the unique ability for you to turn subscribers into paying members, allowing you to turn your website into a business:

βœ… Make money from your content by setting prices for up to three tiers that subscribers can choose from to access premium content
βœ… Payments linked to Stripe
βœ… Only Stripe takes a small percentage of each payment - Ghost takes 0%

By thinking of your website as an online publication, you begin to focus on creating content which enables you to build authority, both with your readers and with Google.
