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.

Sarah has been amazing at fixing some previous website glitches and updating our site. I recently attended one of her training sessions, delivered with a great balance of new information, great visuals, lots of humour and the opportunity to share ideas/experience around the subject. Brilliant!

Suzi is brilliant to work with - she's so helpful and knowledgeable and yet is able to explain things in terms that I understand! It was a pleasure to deal with her during the building of my website - she understood exactly what we wanted and her support since then is second to none. I would recommend her and her team 100%
