WEBSITE DESIGN WITH NO HIDDEN CHARGES

FROM OUR OFFICE IN URMSTON, TRAFFORD IN MANCHESTER

The Smart Bear is a business website design and development company based in Urmston, South Manchester and we understand how scary it can be in a ‘techy’ world where the experts try to blind their clients with science; And so, we avoid using jargon and endeavour to explain everything in plain English.

Our mission is simple, we want to help facilitate small businesses looking better and working better online and our ethos is to never oversell or over-complicate the process.

We know how to design a website using WordPress and we’re here to help create good looking websites of a professional standard but at an affordable price by removing anything unnecessary, or anything not required by the client. We feel there is a huge gap between the prices of big-client-big-budget web agencies, and the little guy who is on a tight budget and working hard to make their business work.

And, as we work independently (we’re a small business too!), our overheads are kept low and we can pass these savings on.
We keep our website designs simple and functional whilst also retaining a modern feel. Combining our decade of WordPress experience with newer developments such as search engine optimisation and mobile first responsive websites, our clients obtain a business website which helps to grow their business.

If this sounds like a company you want to help to build your new website or modify/rebrand an existing website, then book in for a free consultation to find out how we can help.

Excellent, fast, spot on! Whenever I have a problem with my self-built Wordpress site (and there have been quite a few!), a quick message to Suzi sorts it out within minutes. So knowledgeable and quick - I can highly recommend The Smart Bear for all your WordPress problems.

I have been a client of Suzi's for years. She has taken my website from humble beginnings and turned it into a delightful site that gets lots of compliments, lots of visits and really boosts my business. Suzi is highly professional, always helpful and knows her stuff inside out!

Working with Suzi, Sarah and all the team at The Smart Bear has been the 'Smart'est move we have ever made. They are extremely approachable, professional, knowledgeable and a 'perfect match' for our company. We started using their services because our website had been hacked, which they remedied immediately and from there we have gone on to launch a brand new website, blogs, and now they have become a fundamental part of our team. Extending the services we use with them, they are now invaluable.
