We design websites
that make a difference

Beautifully Crafted • Lovingly Nurtured • Sustainably Hosted • From just £30 a month

Your lean, green, creative team

We are Sustained – a small team of two highly experienced web designers with over 15 years combined experience based in the beautiful Welsh valley town of Caerphilly. We offer a truly exceptional and affordable pay monthly website service for small and startup businesses with web sustainability at the heart of what we do.

Unlike many web design companies, our risk-free pay monthly website service has no up front fees, no minimum term and can be cancelled any time. Plus, our pay monthly website packages include regular redesigns of your entire website as standard so you’ll never need to budget for a new website again.

Try us for free

We understand that committing to a design agency upfront is a risk so to show how confident we are that you will love what we do, we offer a design mockup of your home page completely free and with no obligation to continue with the project if you aren’t satisfied with the design. Your first monthly payment is only due if you agree for us to begin building your website based on your approved homepage design. You have nothing to lose so why not see what we can do?

Our process

We believe our process is what sets us apart.

Step 1
Let’s talk

Simply get in touch via phone, email, contact form or live chat.

After discussing your website project and establishing your online goals, we will research your industry and competition and ask you to provide your website’s content such as text, images and videos.

Step 2
Design and refine

We will develop your website content and provide a mockup of your homepage design.

We will refine and develop the design based on your feedback and once you are completely happy, we will send you a link to securely set up your direct debit.

Step 3
Build and launch

After we receive your first payment we will build your website and provide you with a link to explore and review.

We will refine and develop your website until you are completely happy, run final tests and launch!

Step 4
Support and evolve

We will monitor your website’s performance and perform weekly system updates.

Studio time is set aside each month for ongoing content changes and you are also given access to WordPress to add your own content.

Every 24 months we will review and refresh the design of your entire website.

Powerful

We build, host and manage websites with superior performance at their core.

Ultra fast and reliable hosting

We provide UK based SSD cloud hosting for exceptional speed and performance. This will load your web pages many times faster than regular shared hosting. Our package includes unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email addresses and a free SSL certificate.

Built to perform

All our websites are built in WordPress and are stable, ultra fast, very lightweight and uniquely crafted for your business.

Optimised to be found

Search optimised content, structured data and lightning fast load times will give you a head start with search engines. We will do everything we can to help you rank highly in Google.

Focused

Communicate your unique business offerings to your audience as clearly, simply and beautifully as possible.

Defined purpose

Your website relies on finely crafted content that resonates with your audience. We work with you to create balanced, simplified content that clearly speaks to your customers.

Professionally crafted

Website design is an art that requires a deep understanding of aesthetics and online behaviour. Getting this right takes time, passion and experience – and we live for it.

Clear and engaging

We work with you to focus every aspect of your website around your audience, ensuring a clear customer journey that ends with real results for your business.

Evolutionary

Your website needs to adapt to survive.

Adapt to developing trends

Your website will be continuously updated, optimised and developed to disrupt and dominate your competition in a changing digital landscape where only the fittest survive.

Never need a new website again

Even the most modern websites can look outdated very quickly. Our pay monthly website package includes a thorough design review and refresh every 24 months, so your website will always look cutting edge.

We’re in this together – always

Your website will be treated with obsessive care and attention throughout what we hope will be a long lasting, collaborative relationship.

Sustainable

Sustainable web design is a best practice design philosophy focused on simplicity, ease of use and superior performance via clean code and functional, streamlined design. This reduces the amount of processing energy needed to load your website – helping the planet, one website at a time.

Your website will be hosted on UK based servers completely powered by renewable energy. We also power our office and equipment with 100% renewable energy so you can rest assured that your website is not only beautiful but completely sustainable.

The internet consumes the same amount of electricity as the entire United Kingdom.

Frequently asked questions…

A pay monthly managed website is ideal for serious businesses who want a professionally designed website and don’t want to commit to £1000s up-front. This is especially sensible for start-ups who are still pressure testing their business model and are unsure if they will recoup the money spent on their premium website.

Website builders are often viewed as a free or very cheap way of creating a website and if you have the creative knowledge, marketing flare and time it takes to build an effective website, they can be a powerful tool. However, having the tools doesn’t mean you can get the job done well. The difference with our service is our expertise; we are professional designers and marketers providing a premium, hassle-free service and an end product that will out-perform any website created using a DIY website builder. We also ensure the ongoing development, maintenance and regular modernisation of your website, so you can spend your valuable time doing what you do best – running your business.

We understand that you will want to have your new website up and running as quickly as possible but we also want to make sure we take the time needed to create a website for you that provides the results you’re after. Depending on your requirements, the average lead time between initial enquiry and your finished website going live should be around 4 weeks.

At the start of the project you will have an in-depth telephone consultation with us where we will ask questions about your business, your competitors, your industry and any design ideas you may already have. We will then use this information to write optimised content and source the perfect images for your website. Of course, if you have anything already written or images you would like us to use, please email them over.

We will send you a link to quickly and securely setup a direct debit using GoCardless. You will be debited each month for the agreed amount for your package. There is no minimum term and you are free to cancel any time. Just call us or send us an email letting us know you would like to cancel and we will end your direct debit and deactivate your website.

No problem, we can ensure a smooth transition to your new website while retaining your current domain name. We host all of the websites we manage through our tried and tested hosting provider so you will just need to cancel your existing hosting once the website transfer is complete.

All of our websites are built in WordPress – the world’s most popular content management system. We will provide very simple step by step instructions for adding your own pages and blog articles based on preset templates. Our standard package allows up to 30 minutes of studio time per month for any changes you would like us to make for you. You can upgrade to 60 minutes of studio time per month if you would prefer us to manage more of your changes – we can get a surprising amount done in 60 minutes!

We build all of our websites using WordPress and the GeneratePress Pro framework as a solid and secure foundation. GeneratePress acts as a stable, ultra fast and very lightweight (less than 30kb) blank canvas on to which we can cleanly design and code a completely unique website for your business. This efficient approach significantly reduces initial build time, allowing us to spend our time considering and crafting the perfect online experience for your visitors.

We would never make this promise and no other company should either. Google rankings depend on so many different factors. We will however promise to work with you to do everything we can to optimise your website to perform as well as it can.

The success of your website relies as much on your business offering as the website itself. If you are providing something that is desirable for your audience, then we are more than confident that your website will bring you real results. We will work with you and offer our advice and expertise to make sure everything is done to maximise your website’s success.

Yes, after 24 months of payments you will own your website and if you decide to cancel your subscription with us, we will package up your website and supply it to you as a ZIP file for you or your web developer to setup on alternative hosting.

With websites, you almost always get what you pay for. We have no intention on providing budget websites and take huge pride in the standard of web design we offer. We provide a premium service that we are confident won’t be matched on value and high-end quality.

We will work with you at every stage of the design process, from your initial homepage mock-up, to the final finishing touches, to make sure you are completely in love with the design of your website.

Every 24 months, we will thoroughly review and assess the design of your website against the latest online trends and available features, as well as how your website compares to your competition. If required, we will then refresh or completely redesign your website to make sure it is always at the cutting edge of design, functionality and performance.

Let us prove what we can do!
