About Cotswold Websites
Cotswold Websites is a web design agency based in southern Gloucestershire, in the triangle between Wotton-Under-Edge, Tetbury and Badminton, in the heart of the rural South Cotswolds.
Our customers can get the full Internet Marketing experience in-house, by providing services, which include web design, graphic design, search engine optimization (SEO), user experience optimization (UX), photography and video shooting and editing. Further down this page is a brief description of each service, whilst they can be investigated in more detail on their own pages in the Services menu.
Cotswold Websites is particularly interested in helping to promote rural and artisan businesses, farms and estates, along with charities and churches, which traditionally have not had the same need for internet-based services as urban businesses.
We believe that today all companies need a professional-looking online presence if they want to grow their business. A well-designed and promoted website will help you attract new customers or suppliers, and even get your organisation known as a brand or leader in its field or area.
Good-looking websites can now be built relatively inexpensively (depending upon requirements), and therefore become an affordable asset to every organisation, however large or small.
Please contact us for a free consultation about how Cotswold Websites can help you grow your business by having a superb website to promote yourselves.

Did you know that video is one of the most overlooked tools for driving traffic to your website?
Having embedded video in your webpages is a crucial way of getting your website to the top of Google’s rankings. Google has an estimated 90% share of the UK search market. YouTube is by far the largest video search engine in the world – and is also owned by Google! With SEO-optimized videos your website therefore has double the search-juice when they are embedded in your webpages.
Cotswold Websites can help you create and edit videos, and improve any that you may already have. Videos can be as simple as animating a PowerPoint presentation and having a voiceover, to filming an aspect of your business in action.
