Website Design Services in Wigan

Creating Websites is very rewarding. 

It's your shop window to the world, literally!

XSitePro is what I use to build websites. 

In fact, this website was built using XSitePro. 

Yes, I know many people like Wordpress.  But I prefer to build a website that's very different from the typical Wordpress layout.

There's nothing like the experience of creating a brand new website from just an idea - and presenting it to the world.


Website Design in Wigan

And with that comes the challenge of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)... which is all about getting the website to move up the Google ranks.

Having created websites of my own - and got them listed on Google, usually on page 1 - with some in position 1 for a number of key words - it was time to offer these services to local business people.

Allow me to share a few of those with you...


Direct Blinds Website



Trevor Knight of Direct Blinds, Wigan"I would have no hesitation in recommending David Withington.

From start to finish, he gives you his full attention to work with you to produce a first class website.

His passion and obvious enjoyment he got from creating, designing and optimising my website to climb to page 1 in the first couple of weeks, for me, made him a pleasure to work with.

Since going live, I have had many hundreds of 'hits' per month and this has increased my sales dramatically, which I know have come from my website.

I cannot thank him enough, he has definitely helped me to turn my business around."

Trevor Knight - Owner of Direct Blinds, Wigan


Trevor Knight, the owner of Direct Blinds of Wigan, wanted a website which would enhance his company's presence online, and convey it as the reputable quality family firm he'd worked hard to develop it into. 

Blinds WiganTrevor's company has been around for well over 30 years.

And until recently, most of his work had been through recommendations and word of mouth.

But Trevor was tired of having a great company with great a service - yet not getting noticed.

He was fed up of seeing the competition beating him online, and wanted to make some digital noise of his own.

Trevor wanted his business to be found on Google by people searching for particular phrases. 

So he and I set to work creating a website, and optimising it.

And pretty soon his new website was ranking on Google for some important search terms.

Now Trevor's window blinds website appears on Google page 1 whenever people search for lots of phrases to do with window blinds and shutters.

A great deal of business is now brought into his company from people finding his website.

Wigan Training Company Website

Wigan Training Company WebsiteSpecialising in Plant Machinery Training Courses, Wigan Training Company can be found at 

Because there are lots of different types of courses offered, this resulted in many pages being created for the website. 

Nevertheless, the goal of keeping it clean, well organised, informative, and easy to navigate, was acheived.

And because it was built in a SEO friendly manner, the website quickly moved up the ranks in Google. 



Wigan Training Company Website Logo"Dave has been solely responsible for the building of the website.

From the initial consultation through to the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the site, Dave worked to a pretty short deadline to give us just what we asked for plus some extras that we hadn't thought of as a company.

He advised us throughout the consulation and construction, and was never too busy to take calls or make changes to pictures or text that we requested.

Dave is very knowledgeable regarding web design and structure and his ideas were always a great help to us in developing the website.

Tony Baldwin of Wigan Training CompanyThe analytics he provides us with are a constant help with updates and marketing.

He is thoroughly professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave to anyone."

Wigan Training Skills Academy Website  

Another specialist training company, Training Skills Academy (formerly Wigan Training Centre), offers Construction and DIY Training Courses, as well as HM Forces Resettlement.

The Training Skills Academy WebsiteTheir website can be found at www.wigantrainingcentre.co.uk .

Ian Tate, the owner, wanted the company to get recognised beyond the town - and wanted to be found for important phrases in the search engines - such as "Tiling Course Wigan".

So we set to work creating a brand new website, and applied search engine optimisation to get the website to rank for major keywords.

And as you can see from Ian's testimonial, it's created the desired professional image, and is getting the business recognised further afield...



"I wanted to re-brand the company to move forward.

We spoke with Dave about the website and its appearance, information, and being user friendly.

Dave explained the process and what he wanted from us to get the best performance on the internet.

Once we had our content, we sent it to Dave. And with regular emails and updates, the site was produced.

Ian Tate of Wigan Training CentreIt has made a difference to the business, and increased the amount of enquiries.

It looks more professional, and with Dave's help it's getting the business recognised in the North West and further afield."

How To Cruise Website DesignHow To Cruise is a popular website within the Cruise Holiday industry. 

Aimed at those thinking about their first cruise, it was created to be a helpful source of information and advice - to help people make sense of the multiplicity of cruise options and terminology, and decide on the best cruise for them.

The How To Cruise website is found on page one of Google for several popular search terms, and, together with its Twitter followers, Facebook fans, and email subscribers, it has proved to be a popular "go-to" source for both first-time and seasoned cruisers.
