About Our WordPress Web Development

Let us help take your business or organisation's website to the next level!


We provide advanced WordPress development services to tradespeople, SMEs, charities, & other social enterprises

We aim to provide the highest-quality website development & on-page SEO services at great value rates.

We are able to keep our prices down by not having to pay for overheads such as office & studio space.

Whether you need our basic WordPress website development service or something more advanced, Next Level Web Design have WordPress web design packages to suit your needs. 

That’s not all.

With the profits we make from providing our services, we provide basic IT training to vulnerable people to help empower them to use computers and the internet to improve their job prospects or develop their hobbies using IT-related tools.

WordPress Website Development for all

Getting a WordPress website is easy these days; getting a good WordPress website developed is more complicated.

WordPress is an advanced content management system that can easily be customised and extended using WordPress plugins.

If you need it, we can develop plugins for your site that provide any unique functionality that your small business requires.

Getting a high-quality site requires a lot of different skills, tools, and experience. A novice or inexperienced designer may not have all of the skills your business or organisation needs.

You need your site fast-loading, well designed, and optimised for search engines, but that is several different jobs and can get expensive if you’re not careful.

Incorporating a wide variety of advanced functionality and plugins can slow a website down, which could adversely affect your rankings in search engines.

At Next Level Web Design, we use goal & data-driven techniques to create sites that tick all of the boxes in getting a professional online presence but do it in a way that affects your rankings in a positive way rather than negative.

We use white-hat (ethical and preferred by search engines) SEO techniques, which will help increase visitors to your site without Google penalising you for using underhand black or grey-hat strategies.

Whether you decide to go for our most basic WordPress website development service or a completely custom WordPress website development package, we will use the same techniques and tools for each.

Advanced WordPress Development Services

Our more advanced WordPress website development packages include all the tools you need for your business or organisation website to succeed.

Whether you want to use one of our bespoke WordPress web design packages or need some advanced WordPress development package, we can provide your company with the highest-quality website development.

From beefing up your website’s security to adding an automated backup and uptime monitoring, we’ll add the maintenance functions to ensure that your site never goes down. If it should, though, we’ll find out about it quickly, and you will always have a recent backup to restore your site quickly and without problems.

With the more advanced WordPress website development packages, we’ll install functionality that automatically optimises all images you upload to your site to improve the load-time and speed of your website.

We’ll add Schema.org Code Snippets to all of WordPress Web Development Packages.

We’ll add schema.org code snippets to tell search engines exactly what your website is about, and not every website developer will do this, but it is highly recommended.

We’ll also add WordPress security functionality to make sure that your small business site never gets hacked.

If you need a custom design, plugins and themes may not be enough, so theme development is another option.

We will also provide you with training videos that enable you to learn how to update your new site yourselves. We aim to ensure that your organisation is in the best position to succeed.

We will make sure that all of the different elements work correctly. The responsive techniques we use provide your organisation with a clean & functional design, whatever device your visitors are viewing it on.

We use a set website development process that we gradually work through to work out the best ways to help you achieve your business goals for your website.

Pay Per Click Advertising

If you want us to, we can research the best search terms to go for using PPC (Pay Per Click), and we can investigate the search terms that are reachable within your budget using advanced SEO.

We’ll analyse your needs and objectives and then use them to plan the content, features, and functionality you will need to develop and incorporate into your website.

Once we know what content & features you need, we’ll start designing mockups for your new website using Adobe XD before we get your approval on the layout.

Once we have your approval on the design & layout, we’ll move into the development stage and start building your website. This stage is an exciting time for most of our clients as this is where your website starts moving from theoretical to reality.

Well-structured WordPress web development projects:

We’ll build your site from the ground up to be well structured, incorporate all of the content you want us to add, and we’ll start developing & adding all of the functionality you need into your website.

We will help you provide your customers with all of the information they require quickly and easily with an excellent & intuitive user experience.

Our surplus profits help people with mental health problems who slip into addiction

We use our surplus profits to provide and signpost the very best and latest information, tools, support groups/networks, and resources available to those with co-occurring mental health & addiction issues, their carers, family members, & friends, and for the professionals who work with them.

Great customer care - we want to get to know your organisation

Getting a good website developed by anyone requires time and effort of both us and your organisation. This because it is a collaborative effort to develop a good website. In our experience, the better we understand your target audience and how your organisation functions, the more we can help you to develop an effective online presence.

Providing you with the background knowledge you need

Analysis/ Research

The first thing we do after your initial enquiry is to ask you to complete a questionnaire about your business which we will then use to research your target audience(s) & markets. We will meet on Zoom to discuss our findings with you



Using your business' requirements, goals, & budget as a starting point, we will then go on to plan everything that you need for your organisation's website including content and site structure.


After we know everything that you need in design and content, we will design your website using goal-driven responsive web design techniques to make sure that everything looks as you would like.


Once you're happy with the design of your new website, we'll start developing it and incorporate all of the content and functionality that you need.



Once your site has been built, we'll thoroughly test it to make sure that it works correctly and that there are no issues & bugs. We'll also optimise and tweak your site to load as fast as possible.


When you're completely happy with your new site, we'll deploy your website to its final location and make it live.


We'll monitor your site's progress in search engine rankings, tweak anything that we notice needs to be changed or UX that isn't working and gradually grow your website.


If you choose one of our website maintenance plans, we'll make sure that your website is always backed up, is secure, loads quickly and that it's updated regularly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions about our services answered for your convenience...

That very much depends on the site features and functionality that you want.

A simple site that only has a limited number of pages and that doesn't require your site to be optimised for search engines will cost anything from £500 and up.

A more comprehensive service that includes local SEO will start at around £1000+ for a small website that needs SEO.

We give a quote that's completely unique to your site needs & requirements, so get in touch to find out how much your project will cost!

Well, when you're looking for a website designer or devekoper, you'll no doubt come across people and agencies that would happily charge less. The problem with this is that they aren't ever going to be able to put the time and effort into getting to know your business or organisation like we will.

At Next Level Web Design CIC, we usually create a completely unique design that is tailored to suit your needs.

In order to do this, we need to get to know your business and your target markets & audience. This is all time-consuming if it's done properly.

However, we can build sites on a tight budget if you only need a simple website that provides basic information about your business.

We should emphasise that although these packages are suitable for tradesmen, they probably aren't suitable for a business that needs to rank in search engines or that requires some sort of dynamic content.

If your organisation needs advanced functionality such as a forum or you want to tell products & services online, then we recommend investing in your website.

One of the core values at the heart of Next Level Web Design CIC is integrity.

We won't recommend anything you don't need, and will always look into cheaper options if your budget is tight!

We’ve also been asked that question too. We spend a lot of time researching and planning our client's websites if they've opted for a more advanced website development requirements, and this adds a lot of value, but typically cheaper than larger agencies because:

  1. A lot of our customers are small CICs, SMEs, or charities and so we try to keep our overheads down so that we can provide our services at affordable rates to suit small budgets
  2. We don't use an office for our work
  3. We do all of the customer care ourselves so we save on costs because of that

Just remember that we charge on a case by case basis, and if you're a CIC or charity who works in menthal health, or addiction, then we'll also be providing a discount to help your project to succeed.

A simple website development that only has 4 or 5 pages, doesn't need to be optimised for search engines and doesn't require any bespoke or complex functionality is seen by us as a small website.

For tradesmen websites, we often provide the following pages and site functionality for £600:

  1. Home Page
  2. Services Page
  3.  &/or Products Page 
  4. Gallery/Portfolio
  5. Contact Us Page with Contact Form
  6. Help with GDPR compliance

Any project that needs more advanced functionality and/or services included in the site's development such as dynamic content (other than a blog), forums, link building or SEO etc will undoubtedly cost more.

For example, our SEO service on its own starts at £1000 as that rqeuires a lot of work and time for us to complete.

Technically, we will need all of the text , any logos or images, videos or any content that you would like used on your new website.

However, if you're going for one of our more advanced website packages, then this will require that we meet on multiple occassions to discuss your needs.

At Next Level Web Design, we have a whole process that we use on the move complicated websites that we work on as it'll require a lot of research and planning for things like content and site structure.

If you don't feel able to provide us with content, than we can point you in the right direction to find someone who you can pay to write your website's copy.

Like the pricing question, it very much depends on the project we're working on.

For small sites, working quickly but dilegently  is the aim of the game, as time is money  and usually small websites are linked to tight budgets.

For an estimate, a tradesmen website design project would probably take a week, and a much larger website would start at weeks and possibly up to months if it's a really large project like the Dual Diagnosis Hub.

Our SEO service starts at £1000 and includes high-quality content to be written to help you to rank higher in search engines.

It also includes making sure that all of the on-page elements than Google likes to be used will all be optimised in an organic and natural way.

There will also be an ongoing cost of around £300 per month to pay for us guest blogging and other inbound link building strategies and we recommend that you're thinking in terms of 9 to 12 months on going SEO.

We include link building in our SEO packages, and this will enable you to be able to tell us what you need and then forget about it.

We will send you regular emails showing you exactly what we've done with reports on how your search engine rankings are doing.

Since Covid the workplace has changed forever. We no longer meet up with our clients as everything can be done using a combination of telephone, Zoom, email, & WhatsApp messages.

We also don't have an official office, so there isn't anywhere for you to visit.

However, if you would like to meet us in person initially, NLWD are more than happy to meet for a coffee (covid rules permitting).

We don't usually set up our client's social media channels, as it's usually better that the client does that. Same goes for a Google My Business listing, which is why we set up the guide in our tutorials section, but at a push and for a fee, we can help you out with those tasks.

No, is the simple answer.

Next Level Web Design tend to only work with clients that are a good fit, that means that have the budget to pay for their project and that we 100% beleive that we can help.

We usually get a 5-star rating because we only take on clients who are willing to do everything that we require in terms of providing content, and giving us the information we need to help your CIC or company to succeed.

Generally speaking, we don't manage our client's social media channels, but we are willing to help you to create and develop content for them.

Technically, we will need all of the text , any logos or images, videos or any content that you would like used on your new website.

However, if you're going for one of our more advanced website packages, then this will require that we meet on multiple occassions to discuss your needs.

At Next Level Web Design, we have a whole process that we use on the move complicated websites that we work on as it'll require a lot of research and planning for things like content and site structure.

If you don't feel able to provide us with content, than we can point you in the right direction to find someone who you can pay to write your website's copy.
