Helpful articles for our clients
Here at Over Alt we go the extra mile in everything we do. From excellent service, to all-inclusive web design packages for our small business customers.
More than that, though, we also want to be the most helpful web designers that we can, which is why we’ve created this blog to provide our clients and future clients with useful, no-nonsense advice.
We know that the online world can be full of jargon and it can be difficult to navigate at times. Which is why we saw that there was the need for this blog.
It’s written only by us (we don’t outsource this to a random writer) and hopefully will give you a flavour of the sort of company we are: hardworking, helpful and straightforward.
If you’re looking for a web designer for your small business and you’ve stumbled across this page then please feel free to check out our web design packages. We think you’ll be very pleasantly surprised at how much we include in our packages as standard.
We really have worked hard to make sure that we include everything a small business needs to establish a professional online web presence – from professional email addresses, to Google Business listings (and a website, of course) – we have it all covered.

How to set a budget when choosing a web designer for your business.
We know what it’s like trying to choose a web designer. It’s hard. Before we started Over Alt, friends and family running small businesses would come to us for advice. The online world is not only full of jargon, but it’s also, well, a little bit like the wild west. This is most apparent in……
Pay monthly Vs Flat Fee web design: which is best for you?
At Over Alt, we like keeping things simple and straightforward, but we appreciate that clients looking around for different web designers will come across different pricing models like “pay monthly web design,” and “flat fee web design”.

Unfortunately, if you have a website, no matter how careful you are, and what tricks you employ, eventually you’ll get spam messages. These can range from harmless, to harmful.
