Plain Sailing Web Solutions

I bring a software development background to website development. I work with progressive and service-oriented small businesses to provide solutions in a VIP Intensive Package, allowing them to achieve their strategic goals and meet their business aspirations in less time.

VIP Intensive Package

Need your website project done quickly?

Fed up with long, drawn-out projects that never seem to end?

Let me help you. I will work with you in an intensive package that will see you achieve your goals in a matter of days not months.

WordPress Care Plans

Let me take care of your website.

You focus on your business.

Know that I'll be keeping your website up-to-date, backed up and secure.

Add up to 2 hours of small changes each month.

Startup Webpack

Remove the headache of creating a website, have a coming soon page for your visitors and choose a starter template to help you work out your content behind the scenes...
...create your own website, with professional support, on a platform that allows your website to grow as your business grows.


As a qualified proofreader, I know that proofreading is much more than just checking spelling and grammar.

Save money, time and embarrassment by having me professionally proofread any of your online content. This would form part of a package where we are already working together.

Hi I'm Anita

I bring my software development background to website development. I love to work with progressive and service-oriented small businesses to provide solutions in a VIP Intensive Package, allowing you to achieve your business goals and meet your business aspirations in less time.

Taking my years of experience working with longer projects, I have streamlined a process for working with clients to get their website up and running in a matter of days not months.

It means that you can have a professional website that works for you and matches your successful business. You no longer have to deal with long drawn-out projects that don't produce the results you were looking for.

In their words

It was great to have a specific date to focus on the development work and a deadline for when information was required to work to. It was really useful to have an initial kick-off call to get the team together. We came away with a clear vision and well defined objectives.

Working with Anita has been very straightforward. She established precisely what our requirements were ensuring no misunderstandings or confused expectations. The preparation completed as part of the VIP Intensive Package ensured no wasted time on the day. I would be happy to recommend Anita to others.

Power Hour £99

What could we get done? Some examples:

  • Get you set up to use a business email address using familiar software such as gmail;
  • Set up your DNS records so that your email works and your website can be seen;
  • Improve your email deliverability so your emails are less likely go to spam;
  • Add that code from eg, Google Analytics or Trustpilot, to your website that you've been meaning to figure out how to add;
  • Add a custom blog post layout to your website;
  • Give me the image and copy for that blog post. I'll proofread it, optimise and add the image and post it for you;
  • Set up the Google My Business profile for your business (1 Power Hour);
  • A taster session for your chosen website (1 Power Hour) - will include
    • an audit,
    • accessibility review,
    • home page review and
    • 30-minute walkthrough via Zoom;
  • Set up Zapier to automate some mundane, repetitive tasks for you.

We may be able to achieve a few of these things, except where noted.

Can be done remotely via Zoom - or give me what I need (I'll ask) and let me get on with it for you.
