The Clever Clogs

For the team at Clever Business Websites, it’s all about getting to know you and your business. We’re all firm believers in communication being the key to better, more effective business and you’ll find this ethos runs right through the company. This is what makes us stand out from the crowd (and the web design world can get quite crowded!)

About Us

Our ethos from the beginning has always been customer-centric and focused on getting to know our clients and their business to help us create a bespoke website that suits both their business and industry sector. 

We are proud to be different to other web design agencies out there - offering a practical, pay monthly approach.

Start up businesses always need a professional new website to help build up their client base and promote their company. Upfront costs can often deter start-ups from getting the website they need because many website design companies require huge up-front payments to even get the project off the ground.

Our unique approach to website design means our clients have a professional business website without having to pay steep upfront costs. 

Our aim is to work alongside businesses, who require a professional and well polished business website to communicate their personality, business and offerings in the most effective way, as well as achieving it in an affordable monthly plan, with no up-front costs.

Over the past few years, we have built up a loyal customer base, and have designed, created and written content for many Clever Business Websites.  From our Oxfordshire base, we’re ideally placed to not only get involved in the local business community, but also across the country and even have some overseas clients, with a range of different companies we help produce professional pay monthly business websites

We are passionate about what we do, and will support you throughout the project whilst making sure that we understand what you are looking for in your website, who you are appealing to and which design features are most important to you.

Our business is built around pay monthly website plans, which gives you the opportunity to choose the best business website package for you. We will continue to communicate with you even after your website design journey is over as in the long-term we offer regular update facilities, online marketing and robust and secure technical maintenance.
