Promotion-Oriented Design

I'm pretty certain that you arrived at with promotion in mind - that's what is famous for.

Most Web design companies build sites for their clients, then sub-contract another company to take care of promoting the sites. We should know - our favourite promotion clients are design companies who send us a steady stream of new business!

Now, it doesn't take a genius to work out that the most effective way to promote a site is to incorporate promotion elements throughout the site as it's being built. This is the advantage we have over other design companies; we can create your site with built-in promotion elements. Your site will be promotion-ready on completion, saving you time and money.


There are several reasons you might want to hire us:

  1. Full Site Design

    We'll build your site just the way you want it, while using our experience to guide you in the right direction. Custom graphics, sales copy, secure ordering... you name it, we can do it. We won't spout jargon at you either, we speak plain English British or American, whichever you prefer!

  2. Site Redesign

    If you already have a site and you're not happy with it for any reason, we can turn it around and make it into what you originally hoped for. Perhaps it's not doing very well on the search engines, maybe it's in frames, or you may just not like the look of it. In any case we'll be happy to fix it up for you.

  3. Ongoing Site Maintenance

    If you regularly need to add content to your site, you don't need to hire a full-time employee to do it. I'm extremely reliable and I can make your changes within hours of you requesting them. Deadlock will charge your card once a month, it couldn't be easier.

  4. Custom CGI Programming

    Have us add some nifty interactive features to your site to make your users' experience more enjoyable, or to automate some of your processes to make your life easier. If you can dream up an idea, chances are we can make it a reality for you.


How much will it cost? Well, that's a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string?" We base our prices loosely on a rate of $50/hour ($100 for advanced programming), but that's not much use to you if you don't know how long your job will take.

Here's another reason we differ from most other design companies: we agree the price before we start the work, and then we stick to it!... as long as you don't add to the job while it's in progress, of course.

Please write to us for a Free Estimate. We'll be very happy to discuss your requirements with no obligation on your part. You don't need to worry about us putting you on any mailing list or chasing after you for ever more. We'll have a chat, then you can go away and decide whether you like us or not. You have nothing to lose.
