Currently Satch uses NameCheap as it's provider for domains and web hosting because the service is fair value for money and suits the type of websites maintained.
Hi, I'm Chris Satchwell, operating under the online name of "Satch". I'm a self-employed webmaster from the UK. I can provide a range of freelance services to your business. I specialise in WordPress and doing user testings but can complete other requirements too. On this page I've outlined details about my experience and services I offer.
Experience and services
I registered as self-employed way back in March 2007! I started out by creating basic content websites uses free HTML templates. A few years later I started to see the power of using a Content Management System compared to basic HTML files. At that time I chose to switch over to use WordPress and have been working with it ever since, now for around 9 years. I currently maintain 5 websites on a day-to-day basis. I manage all aspects of each site, not just the regular maintenance jobs such as updating plugins but also content creation, marketing, monetization, and design alterations.
While working as a freelancer and contributing to crowdworking platforms I've completed a wide range of tasks including the following:
- user tests
- WordPress maintenance and development
- audio recording to help AI development
- podcast and YouTube transcription
- various data entry jobs
- article writing
Please see the portfolio page for a showcase of the websites currently managed day-to-day by Satch.
Be aware that because I already maintain 5 WordPress websites on a day-to-day basis as well as completing other freelance work that my availability can go through significant fluctuations. Sometimes I simply won't be able to take on any work so will not be able to even provide a quote, other times I will be available to take on bigger projects.
Who I provide services for
The vast majority of people I work with are either other self-employed people or those running small businesses. However I'm also open to working with larger companies depending on the scope of the project. Although I'm from the UK I work with people from countries across the world.
Some projects I will complete for a fixed fee. Others I will complete at an agreed hourly fee. I use Trello to accurately monitor hourly projects to ensure you are charged fairly. The pricing will be decided based on the type of work you need completing. When requesting a quote please state which pricing format you would prefer.
Payment methods for agreed work
- UK clients: bank transfer or PayPal
- International: PayPal only
If for any reason you need to cancel our agreement very soon after starting it I charge a 20% abort fee, this means you'll receive 80% of your money back.
Sometimes during projects it becomes clear that the skills to meet a required outcome in a project can be beyond my skillset. This is generally avoided by a clear understanding of the job at hand and a plan of how to complete it before work commences. However, in the rare case that it does happen there will be a full explanation of the situation provided and an agreed refund, depending on what status the project is at. If no progress is made then of course a 100% refund is provided. There is also the option for the work to be sub-contracted if desired. I hope this brings peace of mind to all clients.
