Vato Design started as a project to enable small and medium businesses to get a professional website back in 2011. As a freelancer needing a website for one of my many projects, I reached out to more than a dozen agencies and freelancers for a quote.
To my surprise, each of them asked for several thousand euros to design a basic website with some text, images, and a contact form. Like so many other business owners before me, my first thought was, “this just won’t do!” – so I decided to learn how to design my own website. But I understand that most business owners don’t have the luxury of spending years perfecting their design skills. Also, I’m stubborn.
Since then, I’ve designed and developed several large e-commerce websites with thousands of products, basic company websites for the local plumber, and everything in-between.
My journey in web design has been fascinating, exciting, frustrating, and rewarding. But one thing is for sure: I’m still designing professional and beautiful websites at a fraction of the cost at other web designers and agencies. How? Let me tell you.
Cutting Costs and Boosting Creativity
To create websites that look great, loads fast, and works perfectly, I had to re-think the entire approach. First of all, I got rid of anything that would increase my costs.
That meant no office, no business trips, and no charging my clients for things like coffee while working. That’s why everything I do is based in the cloud and gets organized from home. So if you want me to hop on a flight to meet up with your team, forget it. If you’re going to pay for needless and time-consuming business meetings, I’m not your guy. We’ll talk on Skype, on the phone, or via e-mail. It’s free and saves both you and me the time and extra cost of business travel. As a bonus, it’s better for the environment, and this way I can spend my time actually working on your website!
Pixel Perfect Web Design in Moments
Then I had to develop a workflow that allowed me to create websites quickly and effectively, while not getting in the way of my creativity. That’s why I exclusively work with WordPress and Divi. It allows me to create pixel-perfect websites with unique layouts for every client while keeping costs down and the workflow effective.
To give you an example: the website you’re on right now took me two days to make from scratch! There’s no pre-built layout; everything is hand-made using WordPress and Divi. With that sort of speed and effectiveness, I can get your company online with a unique website in just a few days. Of course, more extensive projects like e-commerce stores and advanced solutions take more time, but it just goes to show; it doesn’t have to take long or cost an arm and a leg to get a stylish website!
Support that’s Actually Helpful – For Free
To top it all off, I wanted to offer my clients something genuinely different. While most web designers will charge you hourly for their support after your site is done, I give it away for free. Well, it’s not entirely free – I only offer support if you host your website with me.
Blazingly Fast Hosting at a Fraction of the Cost
I think that’s fair, especially considering the blazingly fast and secure hosting you’ll get, starting at just 5,50 euros per month for a service you’d be likely to fork up 50+ euros for with a hosting company.
You see, that’s another thing making Vato Design so different. I know that even the most optimized website will load slowly on a bad host. To be competitive in Google and with your clients, you need a fast website. That’s why I only host my client websites on specialized servers, configurated especially for WordPress.
It Means Peace of Mind
So what does all this mean for you as a company? It means peace of mind, knowing that your website is available and secure with a 99,9% uptime guarantee, loading almost instantly across the globe.
So, there you have it.
By cutting costs wherever I can, perfecting an effective workflow while boosting my creativity, and by giving you the peace of mind you need as a business owner, I genuinely believe what I offer is unique. If you agree, let’s talk about your next project!
