Marathia Web Design is specialized in high quality, low cost websites for small companies, associations, private persons etc. I don’t do really big, database driven projects involving loads of cgi, php or other scripting, because the company is just me. So, if you want a beautiful presentation on the web without paying through the nose, you’ve come to the right place.
Of course it is important that you like my work, so please take a look at my portfolio of example websites.
Sure! I can improve or redesign your existing website and add additional content as required. I’m always willing to assess your current website and recommend enhancements for your consideration.
If you are making an enquiry about a possible site you would like me to create for you, please provide a brief outline of your requirements. I will mail you back as promptly as possible with an idea of price, timescale and suggestions with regard to your project. You are not obliged to use my services at any stage during this process, so feel free to use the contact form to ask any related questions you may have.
The timescale of a project depends on many factors and is generally dictated by the client. Usually a brand new website takes a few weeks to finish. If you have a deadline in mind please let me know, so I can tell you whether or not I will be able to meet it for you.
What you prefer. You can do it by yourself or I can do that for you if you like.
The cost of a website varies, depending upon the type of site you require. An example: a basic site (5 pages including a gallery and a contact form) will cost approx. € 500. That is: when you have the text and the photographs that will be used.
The only ongoing cost will be your annual hosting fee which will be around €20 yearly.
I aim to give all of my clients ‘value for money’ websites that meet their wishes. Be assured that your site will at least meet the following criteria:
  • custom design - your own unique look and feel.
  • domain name and web hosting
  • ethical coding
  • optimized web pages
  • optimized graphics
  • cross browser compatibility
  • free support
  • free advice
If you would like to use my services all you need to do is send me a brief idea of your wishes. Then, based on your guidance, I will design an initial web page for you.
Then this design will be refined/changed in consultation with you until you’re happy with it. After that, I will need you to forward content and images for your site, so I can start designing your website.
I generally ask for a 25% deposit from clients. The balance of payment is due on completion of the project.
I submit all websites I design to Google and, if applicable, Yahoo! and DMOZ. Unfortunately, influence on the ranking is limited. Search engines’ algorithms (and thus rankings and listings) may occur daily, weekly or even hourly.
I won't fool you into believing there’s a whole team here. In fairness at the moment its just me, and my wife who does most things involving choosing color schemes and taking and selecting pictures.
I know a lot of good people and if I can’t do it properly I’ll get someone who can.
In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary. My sites are generally completed with contact via email, Skype and/or telephone only.
Of course I'm available for after sales service after the completion of a website project. Any slight tweaks or amendments are carried out to the site free of charge in the first month. For any support thereafter I charge an hourly rate of €40.
Sure I have! You can find it here. I know, it’s not something for the faint hearted, but basically everything in there is also discussed on this page.
