Website Design & Build 

Creating websites tailored to your budget & goals

Each website is unique, yet needs to address a visitors 3 key questions within 4 seconds...

Is the relevant to my needs?

Clarity in imagery and words is key. Knowing what pain your visitor is seeking to alleviate or delight they are seeking to experience drive your message.

Is this believable?

Credibility is reinforced by testimonials, qualifications, imagery of you delivering on what you say you can. We are a social species so social proof is key.

What do I do next?

Confusion creates resistance so we need to make the path to enquiry, further information seeking or purchase as smooth as possible.


Upsurge has been brilliant setting me up to update my website by myself

Objectives: Having a website that was easy to use, fast and responsive were my main priorities. Suze from Upsurge has developed a website for me that is all that and more.

Upsurge was great to work with, they got it done on time, they gave me some great ideas and came back to me quickly.

As I am fairly green when it comes to the technical side I was impressed how Suze talked me through how it would fit together, she came up with solutions to a couple of problems and has been brilliant setting me up to update my website by myself.

Upsurge was great value for money. I would thoroughly recommend Upsurge to my friends and colleagues.

Made it sound better and look professional

Dale Logan , Owner of DL Equine

Suze drew the info out and made it sound better and look professional.

I used to spend soo much precious time on my website, it was cluncky to use and just didn’t look professional. I was so frustrated, wasting time and ending up just making a mess!

Then I discovered Suze of Upsurge, where I had developed the website of my dreams!

Suze really is the guru of all website and IT!

Suze has the amazing ability to really listen to what a client wants to achieve and to pull all those ideas that are jumbled in your head into fabulous imagery and writing.

I can’t recommend Suze and upsurge enough! Get your professional website developed by Suze from Upsurge, you won’t be disappointed!


Really happy with final result

Daniel Carroll , Director

Objectives: Support my business, all objectives met, yes, really happy with final result.

Very easy to work with, very responsive, you know your stuff :). The design worked great, very on brand, couldn't be happier. Didn't do copywriting for my site, but helped in some areas with this, which was great as my copywriter isn't a specialist in my area of business or in website copy.

Very good value for money and absolutely recommend UpSurge.


For a techno phob you have made this daunting process a dream

Thanks so much for your amazing services!!


Great communicator throughout the process and very knowledgeable in this space

Jo van der Walle , Director

Suze at Upsurge recently helped me recreate my website on wordpress and I couldn’t recommend her more. She was a great communicator throughout the process and very knowledgeable in this space. She was always available to answer questions over the phone, meet in person and very punctual and reliable with the deadlines given.

Not only did she create an outstanding result she was also able to provide great recommendations along the way and always happy to step outside the brief to make sure my website that bit better.

After outsourcing my website to consultants in other countries – that seemed to have a cheaper hourly rate – the lack of understanding and slow results frustrated me and in the end it would have been much more effective and efficient to use Suze from the get go.


Upsurge interpreted our ideas and our image requirements perfectly

Objectives: To update a very dated and cumbersome site. Yes, these objectives were met.

Very easy to work with. Upsurge took our rough ideas of what we wanted to achieve and very quickly produced a site we liked. We are very happy with the design. Upsurge interpreted our ideas and our image requirements perfectly.

Technical know how was greatly superior to our previous provider. We were very happy with what we got for our money. We think we got very good value.

Definitely recommend!

Often running & promoting the business is the challenging bit - not providing the products and services you are expert in.
