Typical Q & A…

What kind of clients do you work with?
We work with any type of individual or business. Whether it’s for a static brochure style website, a blog or an eCommerce website. We can design and build your website to your specification.

What is your turnaround time?
Our turnaround time is based on the specification of the job. For a basic website it generally takes 1 – 2 weeks or for more larger and complex eCommerce websites it can take anywhere from 1 month to 6 months.

Can you get me on page 1 of Google?
There is no sure and fast way to achieve page 1 status on any search engine. You also have to be realistic if it’s a very competitive market you are in. We have found search engines do not favour every page on your website. It can take a very long time to even move 1 page up the rankings or it can take hours! However, we understand Google’s best practices and have a vast pool of experience we can refer to to get the job done as best as we can to give your website the best possible chance. We are always actively learning new techniques to give you the best possible chance of ranking high on search engines. Not sure about our SEO? Why not Google “search engine optimisation in Plymouth“? – we’re on page 1!

I already have a website, can you maintain or update it?
Yes, that’s no problem. We don’t just design websites or only localise design in Plymouth, Devon. If you already have a website designed and built but just need to manage and update your content, that is no problem at all. We have knowledge of all types of platforms including CMS platforms such as WordPress, Joomla and Magento.

Don’t Be Shy

Email or drop us a line anytime, we will be happy to chat and answer any questions as well as discuss any website design, search engine optimisation or multi-channel eCommerce setup requirements.

I had the pleasure of having Dan build me a brand new website for my mobile car body repair and cosmetic repair business. I was very impressed with PL1’s great communication and customer service. What PL1 don’t know about website building isn’t worth knowing. Since I have had the new website and search optimisation, my work load has increased by 30%.

I would like to thank Dan and his team at PL1 Web Design for creating my new website for my yoga classes. From the start of the process, Dan was eager to get my ideas and work with them. He is a very easy-going person to work with and he worked with enthusiasm and expertise to create both an affordable and professional website. I know that Dan understands SEO and all the other important background issues, entailed, with creating a new website.

We had a website that we were not happy with – we found that what we were promised was not what we were given. After looking around we found PL1 – a local company where you can talk to the people face to face, rather than over the phone or via email. Dan walked us through the entire process and we now have more than we thought was possible in both design and function. We have been so impressed with PL1 we have personally recommended PL1 Web Design to other businesses that we work with. PL1 – Locally designed for a Worldwide Audience.
