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 signed up for a power hour with Sarah last month and I cannot shout about it enough! I highly recommend it to anyone who already uses (or wants to use) social media for their business.I love Facebook for my business, I am in a few really great groups and communities of local and UK wide small business owners and I have a page where I share useful hints and tips with my audience. Sarah advised me to continuing doing exactly what I am doing on Facebook, said she loved it and it was great. What a confidence boost!I am on all other platforms too but didn't post as much on any of them.Sarah listened to me and quickly advised me to concentrate on LinkedIn next and forget about the others while I had limited time to work (with 2 young kids at home). It was great advice! And thanks to Sarah, I've now got the confidence to write articles and engage more regualrly on LinkedIn. And I love it.Sarah really knows her stuff. She is so easy to get along with and she explains things really well. She is also empathetic and has the unique skill of understanding your vision and your business in a small space of time. These skills coupled with her extensive knowledge of digital marketing mean she is very well placed to help with all your LinkedIn, Facebook, Insta and Twitter questions and can help and guide you with decisions on how you use them for your business.

I am secretary of a charity, The Toy House, and we turned to Suzi and Sarah for help with our website. They are unfailingly professional and helpful plus they saved us money!Sarah also did some Microsoft training for us which was very helpful. She makes you feel relaxed and confident about solving issues. Highly recommend their service.
