We’re Wild About WordPress Websites


Business Website Design To Suit Your Business and Your Budget

A company’s website must be their wisest investment; it’s a business asset, and a professional modern website will help you stand out in a competitive market.
We build our websites on WordPress so they’re effortless to edit.
And, WordPress makes websites easier to develop in the future. We believe websites should grow as your business does without having to start from scratch.



Upgrade Your Website, Improve the Style, Increase Traffic

We can help you improve, tweak and develop your website to increase traffic and attract more sales. Or, to improve the functionality and make your life easier.
Does your site need to be more user friendly, cleaner, simplified, or look more professional? Or if you have a big or small problem which needs fixing, we can take a look at it for you and provide a quote.
We also offer monthly care and maintenance subscription packages to take make looking after your website stress-free.



Keyword Optimisation, Technical SEO, Responsiveness and SSLs

If your business website needs optimisation to be ranked higher on search engines like Google, then we can help!
It may need technical aspects like being responsive, adding an SSL certificate, or it may need keyword optimisation. We can provide both one-off overhauls or on-going monthly packages but without blinding you with science!



WordPress training, Social Media training or SEO training

Our qualified trainers can provide either one to one or group bespoke training in a variety of digital subjects like WordPress, Social Media, or the ins and outs of improving your SEO.
Training takes place in Manchester or over Skype. Each session can be booked by the hour or in blocks of courses and we will tailor each session to your needs.



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’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.

Suzi and Sarah have been super helpful, creative and speedy!I approached Suzi for some help with a new website very recently and we already have one, up and running and something I feel really proud of.Suzi and the team are really friendly, helpful and creative. I like how they present you with ideas already narrowed down to what is most likely to suit you. They are good at challenging you and making alternative suggestions.I've found them really flexible and accommodating with some tight timescales and a customer with some exacting standards.Suzi was also great in introducing me to other creative professionals who've been able to assist in the whole process too.I can highly recommend. Great service, great product and great value for money 😁

Fantastic service from Suzi. If I could give 6 stars I would. Had my web site taken down by the hosts because of malware. After many emails and personally dont know much on the IT front for computers etc, Suzi fixed the problem far quicker than expected. Will certainly use again if need be. Top marks

Suzi and her team are quite simply the best out there if you need a WordPress expert to either build or maintain your website. They do a great job looking after the British Recycled Plastic website for us.Recommended. (Y)
