PL1 Web Design offers the best range of services for any new business looking for the online exposure the internet brings. We can provide a website to suit your needs. This could be a simple, neat and tidy business showcase website or a full blown multi-channel eCommerce website, complete with a storage, pick, pack and dispatch service (order fulfilment).
If you already have an old website, we can freshen it up with a redesign and bring it up to date. Being a family run business based in Plymouth we know first-hand from the ground up how important it is to grow and thrive in business these days. We have a wide range of other services you may want to migrate to, which include search engine optimisation and social network feed creation & management.

We can build any type of website. Whether it’s a professional and neatly designed basic information website or a full-blown 100,000 page eCommerce website, we can help.
We believe communication and understanding is key and giving a professional impression is paramount. This is why for all our projects we meet our customers face-to-face for a consultation and discuss their specific requirements and needs. This information will allow us to offer the best proposal of work we can for the best price.
All the websites we build are code compliant, search engine optimised, built to the highest quality, fully upgradable and the content can be easily updated and changed.
Most information style websites we design take approximately 1 to 2 weeks to complete and start from £395. Larger and more complex eCommerce websites will start from £1500 and will take 4 – 6 weeks depending on the specification.

Search Engine Optimisation
If your website is new or the content is not quite up to scratch, this may be the all too common reason why no one is visiting it!
We can analyse your website in detail and correctly identify key areas that can be updated. This will then give it the best possible chance of being discovered organically and most importantly, converting website hits into customers.
Apart from a one-off search engine optimisation service (SEO), we can also offer a monthly SEO package tailored to your needs. In our mind this is the best thing you can do and it is not only our opinion, it is strongly recommended by our customers too. We would actively monitor organic search results for current and new keywords that your potential customers are searching for. We then proactively modify your website on an as needed basis. This is based on the keyword stats from the analytical techniques we employ to gather this data.

Social Network Feed Creation and Management
With Facebook’s 1.1 billion active users and Twitter’s 200 million active users, why wouldn’t you want to engage with your current customers and meet new customers? However, actively engaging with people in these social circles can be difficult even for the tech-savvy.
“That is why we have specifically employed someone who loves to tweet and post to Facebook all day!”
We can setup your business social profiles and actively manage your Facebook posts and tweets with the latest products and services you offer. We can even run fun competitions to boost your profile exposure and following. We have done this for a number of clients and they have, for example, got over 1000 followers in a matter of weeks just by saying and doing the right thing. The followers even interact by sharing your posts and chatting to you (the business) just like a friend. This means they are more likely to spread a positive review about your business and buy your products or services. This is a proven method and has converted into actual orders for one of our eCommerce websites we built. We also maintain their social feeds.

Multi-channel eCommerce Setup
Would you like to grow your online business massively and reach millions of new customers? Would you like to do this without all the hassle of working out how to sign up and going through a gruelling pre-authorisation checklist? You can with our technical know-how, in-depth knowledge of multi-channel eCommerce and contact lists. We can sign your business up to all the top professional merchant marketplaces and fully integrate your stock to be sold on Amazon, Play.com and eBay.
You don’t even need a website! There are many ways to import your current stock. For example, by CSV and Excel, or even a barcode list. The basic information required is your SKU, minimum price and maximum price you wish to sell your products for. Once this information is received we can easily import this into the stock management software and your listings will be created on as many sales channels you require within hours.
Not only that, but incorporated into this software is a competitor price checker. It checks the price of ALL your inventory on every marketplace every hour 24/7. It reprices your products up or down depending on the price of other competitors. This means you can stay competitive 24/7 without fail 365 days of the year. Whilst being reassured every time you sell a product you are always making money. These price rules also mean you can set specific margins on different marketplaces and even price match competitors or reprice by 50p.
There is no extra cost involved for the marketplace repricing software. It is included within the inventory software.
Pricing for a multi-channel stock inventory and repricing system is:
One off setup / full integration fee of £500.
- £50 per month for 1 marketplace, such as eBay.co.uk or Amazon.co.uk.
- £75 per month for 3 marketplaces, such as eBay.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.
- £150 per month for 4 marketplaces, such as eBay.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.Fr and Play.com.
- £300 per month for 5 marketplaces, such as eBay.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.Fr and Play.com.
- £400 per month for 5+ marketplaces, such as eBay.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.Fr, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Play.com.
NO COMMISSION OR FEES ARE TAKEN FROM YOUR SALES, ONLY THE MONTHLY FEE FOR THE AUTO-REPRICING, INVENTORY AND ORDER PROCESSING SERVICE.

Our mail & fulfilment services are now being handled by our dedicated partner company Choice Fulfilment (Services) LTD.

We can download your orders simply by a CSV feed, Excel document or email confirmations with the relevant information in, such as product name, SKU and address.

If you already have a website but struggle to find the time to update it yourself, or your current web host charges an extortionate amount to update your website – we can help!
It’s not just about adding fresh, new content, we can introduce small back-end updates which can help your customers engage more with your business, such as Facebook and Twitter feeds on your website. We would also create new banners / promotional images to give your site a fresh new look if required. We are here to help you build and grow your website with you.
With the recent changes at Google and Bing, it is now essential to update your website regularly to ensure your rankings do not get affected negatively. Google will naturally crawl your website every few weeks so it’s best practice to update your website at least once every 4 weeks as a bare minimum. Although, once a week or bi-weekly is best. It does not effect the price as it would be equally split between different weeks for the month.
Not only that, your website needs to look and feel like you care about your business and the customers you are trying to engage with. A website is very much like a shop window into what your business looks like. Every customer wants to feel like you have taken the time for them by giving them the information they require, quickly and efficiently. If they feel like it’s a “dead website”, it gives the wrong impression. The customer would either think you’ve gone out of business or simply do not care about the impression you give to potential and existing customers.
“It’s all about adding well written, engaging and rich content on a regular basis”
We offer 2 levels of website maintenance with a 3rd bespoke website maintenance service tailored to your exact needs.
If you have an information / brochure style website (not eCommerce), the below maintenance packages are best suited.
Website Maintenance Service 1:
Up to 2 hours per month of updates to your website – £25.
Website Maintenance Service 2:
We host your website and offer up to 2 hours per month of updates to your website – £30.
We can offer a tailored website maintenance package to suit all clients’ needs. For example, if you run an accountancy firm and just require a couple of blog / news posts and basic information updated every week or once a month, our package is perfect. Or if you have an eCommerce site and require a number of updates per week or month, we can discuss the best price for you. Although if you only require a few updates per month, then one of the above quoted packages would suffice.
Call us today on 01752 296 666 and we will be happy to talk over the phone or meet face to face to find out more about your business and what is required.
