A strategic effective website will...

Elevate your business and brand and gain competitive advantage

Gain trust and help win more leads that convert to real business

Be an informative resource for customers helping reduce repetitive work for staff

Represent your business 24/7 to anyone in the world

Don't worry.
That's exactly why I'm here.

You already have a successful business.
(A business that’s making money with huge potential.)

You deserve a website that pushes your business forward — instead of holding you back from doing more, saying more, and selling more.

Imagine having a website that works hard every day for your business and can scale with your business.

Why Work With Me

Having a website that is both beautiful and effective is more important now than ever, but doing it yourself can be stressful and extremely time consuming. Additionally handing it over to an outside party to manage can feel like a leap of faith.

As a qualified project manager I want to take away the stress by providing consistent communication throughout the project along with resources and customised training once your website is live so you are empowered to use your website moving forward.

I care greatly about the outcome of each project and take pride in my work and truly value being able to help businesses grow online.

Itchy Fingers Design act as a dedicated, long-term partner in building, maintaining and growing your web presence.

I believe

Sales should feel easy, not sleazy. Your website should be your 24/7 salesperson without sounding like a commercial — so you don’t waste time on calls and proposals that go nowhere
Clarity is captivating. Knowing exactly WHO you are, WHO you serve, and WHY is the bedrock of the most effective brand strategy.
"Pretty" doesn't profit. Over-designed websites don’t usually profit. Deliberately designed, strategic websites do
A great website doesn't need to take months and months with tonnes of input from you. We gather information at the start of the project so we need minimum continuous input from you.

How it works

A look at the 6 step process that will transform your website from 'bootstrapped' to stunning 

01

Strategy Session

It all starts with strategy. To kick off your project, you and I will dig into who you are, where you are in your business, and where you want to be. We'll also dig into who your customers are, and what they need right now. 

02

Captivating Content

Have copy, photos, and branding that converts? Great. From there, we’ll structure your website around your content and customer journey and ensure it is effectively optimised for your customers along with SEO.

03

10 Day Design Sprint

We’ll combine your copy, photos, and branding to build and launch a stunning, strategy-focused site from scratch. Thanks to our finely-tuned design process, you’ll get a site that increases your online presence and impact in just 10 days.

04

Live Revisions

Once your initial site is built, you and I will meet over video chat to review each page and tweak the details in real time. Say goodbye to weeks of back-and-forth emails and hello to streamlined, stress-free collaboration.

05

Training & Launch

On launch day, I’ll move your site to your live domain. You will have access to custom video tutorials and a full site walkthrough in your dashboard that you can refer to at any time. Then, it’s time to celebrate on social media and get the word out about your new site.

06

Ongoing Support

After your site is live, I won’t leave you in the lurch. Every project comes with 30 days of complimentary support by email. I also offer ongoing monthly care plans that takes care of backups, updates and maintenance. You will also receive your website owners manual which includes details about your new site.

In the end...

You won’t just have a crystal clear website that…

  • Attracts more customers
  • Generates increased leads
  • Makes more sales
  • Build your reputation
…You’ll have a platform that capitalises on the reputation and positioning you’ve already achieved; so it feels exciting and achievable to reach those bigger goals.

But What Does it really look like?

Here's what some past clients had to say...

We at Lynch Flooring Roscommon are very happy with our new website. Amanda is very professional in her approach and is so easy to work with while explaining each step as the project progresses. She is very aware of deadlines and responds quickly to any queries. We would highly recommend Itchy Finger Design.

It is fantastic to have a person that you can actually chat to about your website design from start to finish. Amanda also provides many tips around working smarter on your website to get the most from it.

I can not recommend Amanda of Itchy Fingers Design enough, her professional and expertise are only surpassed by her patience and understanding. She took the time to fully understand my business and objectives, which was vital to be able to design a website that stands out. Amanda works extremely hard to make sure the end result matches the vision that sometimes is difficult to put into words. I would happily introduce Amanda to clients and friends who are looking for more than an "Out of the box" website design.

Amanda is very professional and patient, delivering a high standard website within our brief. Amanda has gone the extra mile in terms of research and made the whole process a lot easier for us - so thank you so much for the guidance and help -we are delighted with the result!

Extremely professional and creative

Itchy Fingers Design helped us in developing and redesigning two commercial websites recently and I could not recommend them enough. Amanda was a huge help in the process, extremely professional and creative while also being on hand at every stage to give advice and make any necessary changes. She made the process very easy for us while producing websites of a fantastic standard and quality. We will definitely be continuing our work with Itchy Fingers Design for all future projects.

A truly professional approach

Amanda provided a truly professional approach to meet our firm's requirements. Amanda engaged with us to deliver every aspect of our design intent and provided a creative and responsive service to facilitate the delivery of our new website on time, within budget and having fun throughout the process. Great end results and we have recommended Itchy Fingers Design to several of our industry partners.

Great design flair and attention to detail

I recently worked with Amanda to build our website for Payslip. I am thrilled with how the website turned out. Amanda matched our brief completely. I found Amanda really easy to work with, very responsive and timely. We gave her a tight deadline for completion and she managed to get this great site live in that time. Amanda has great design flair and attention to detail. I would highly recommend her and Itchy Fingers Design.

An incredibly easy process right from the start

Working with Amanda on our web design project was an incredibly easy process right from the outset. She listened to our requirements from the beginning and was able to create and develop a very user-friendly website which our customers love. The whole company now use the website on a daily basis and we plan to continually develop it from an SEO perspective using our new content marketing strategy which she oversees.

I would like to say a big thanks for a great job to Amanda (Itchy Fingers Design) for out lovely new web site. It has been a pleasure to have worked with you over the past few months. Thank you for your professionalism, and your pleasant manner throughout all our dealings.

Got some questions?

How long will my project take
Once we've both agreed a start date and content has been provided, I will design your site over 10 days in a design sprint. We will then live edit collaboratively. This makes the entire process much more efficient and removes any obstacles.
I have no graphics or professional logo, what can I do?
For some businesses they may not even have a logo defined or business imagery to work with. We can create a customised package that fits with your requirements and budget and can suggest staged phases for achieving a realistic goal for their business.
How much will my project cost?
Every website is unique, just like every business, but here's the nitty-gritty of what the "starting at" price includes:

Web design + strategy: €3,500

  • x1 60-minute strategy call to plan your site
  • Web design for the 5 most important pages of your site (home, about, work with me, blog, contact)
  • List-building essentials (x1 main email capture form, a "thank you for subscribing" page, and integration with your mailing list provider)
  • All the tech essentials (set up for your domain name, professional email, and Google Analytics, as needed)
  • Custom training video tutorials
  • 30 days of follow up support

Need something that's not included in the core package? Let's discuss! Some common add-ons include:

  • Portfolio page
  • Events calendar
  • Long-form sales page
  • Stock photo curation
  • MailChimp (or other) set-up
  • CRM set-up
  • Calendly (or other) scheduling set-upEcommerce siteForms that can take paymentsPayment plans50% of project fee upon acceptance and 50% (plus any extras) payable before launch or within 30 days following project start, whichever comes first.
What kind of clients do you work with?
I work with clients of all sizes from large to small across many business sectors. They all have one thing in common – they want to grow their business online and present themselves professionally to the world. They understand the importance of investing into their business's web presence.
Can you guarantee me to be on page one of Google?
No, and you should be very wary of anyone that tells you they can. Unfortunately there is no magic formula for achieving a high ranking in search results. However, we will optimise your site to have the best chance possible. We also encourage our clients to produce quality content, which definitely helps. There are many factors that help sites rank well including backlinks, cornerstone content etc. We would be happy to discuss these in more detail.

Here are some resources that explain how to produce great content maximised for search engines and most importantly, your audience:
