Looking for a reliable and recommended website designer?
Beechill Park is a small freelance web development studio based in South Belfast, Northern Ireland who can provide you with an effective and affordable web site that will rank highly in search engines.
web design and development
My goal is to design and develop a professional customer-friendly website that gets your customers to contact you, buy your product or find the information they need. Using an attractive site design retains the customer on your site and good copywriting, personal information and testimonials can help to build trust. The result should be to persuade a potential customer to do business with you.

I’ve over 10 years experience of producing software applications for clients, ranging from ecommerce and CMS solutions for small businesses, to management applications for Oil and Gas clients. I now work on a freelance basis, particularly in the area of PHP and Coldfusion development. Please contact me regarding my availability if you are looking for a freelance developer. My rates are flexible depending on the project and can be on a per hour or fixed price basis.
A content management system allows you to make changes to the content of your site yourself. I can advise you on the available options and recommend a system to meet your needs. I’ve experience of developing CMS systems in WordPress, Joomla and also building bespoke CMS systems in Coldfusion and PHP.
search engine optimisation
A great looking website isn’t going to be effective if people can’t find it. I can advise you on methods to optimize and promote your website. I will be open and honest about the SEO strategies I use, which start with simple on-the-page SEO strategies such as entering the correct metatag data, relevant keywords and analysing the keyword density in your content. Although these are well known, I’ve had clients who have had these done incorrectly and have wondered why there are getting poor traffic from search engines.
I will build your website with SEO as a priority and to suit your particular product or market and your geographical location. I will also advise you on how to build effective links from other websites (known as backlinks) and directories so that you will get traffic through referrals.
The field of SEO is filled with people professing to be SEO experts, many who use outdated practices or lack knowledge of what works effectively. I’ve learnt SEO through experience of developing content sites and improving their ranking. I constantly update my knowledge of SEO through research and learning from the experts. There are also a range of tools which can automate the task of improving your ranking and you can use yourself. I can advise you on the effectiveness of these.
“Declan’s knowledge and ability to understand requirements and provide a prompt solution was impressive. Not only did he always provide a workable solution, he exceeded expectations by raising concerns about tasks and solutions that from a technical sense weren’t ideal. His availability and the quality of the work delivered by him was excellent, and he showed great reliability. I would be more than happy to work with him again. ” – Chris Freimann – Design Industries, Melbourne
