We offer two distinct web design platforms:
A website is a business tool, nothing more and nothing less. Every client is different. We ensure we understand the job before suggesting a tool to do that job. Others often start by throwing the latest 'in vogue' phrases at you - as if the solution is defined before the task.
It may well be that in order to achieve your goals you will not only need a professional website, but you will rely to a large degree on Search Engines, particularly Google, to generate visits. We offer comprehensive SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and PPC (Pay Per Click, such as Google AdWords) services. Click HERE for more.
If your requirements are not a perfect match for our services, software and skills we will be the first to tell you.
Not only are we one of the UK's longest established Web Design Agencies, but our partners had previous senior roles within industry and Television. We understand business needs, media and communication.
We have worked with hundreds of clients from all sorts of trades, skills and professions. We approach you with a desire to find out about your business and requirements rather than simply from a sales orientated approach.
We will recommend the best solution based on our understanding of your needs and preferences.
All projects start with an initial telephone or email conversation, and this will give us some important initial information. If it is clear that a simple WordPress site is the most appropriate, for example because of a tight budget, then we will know at this stage.
In many cases we will need to find out more information, and this is usually done at a free, no-obligation, on-site consultation. See below for more details:
For most projects we visit the client, without obligation, to establish their needs at the quotation stage
After an order is placed there may well be additional visits for an initial project meeting, collection of and review of content material and again for delivery. This will vary depending on budget and other client-specific factors.
However, if you are on a very tight budget with simple requirements (as many small and micro businesses are), or are a long way away from us then visits may not be necessary nor cost effective.
We typically work to the following guidelines:
Cost varies depending on the number and complexity of pages required, and also on which platform (cartXtra or WordPress) is to be used.
For small and micro business wanting just a few pages and using WordPress, prices start at £395+vat.
It is fair to say that the majority of websites we build are between the £995+vat and £3500+vat mark. Sites requiring hundreds of pages can reach five figures.
The price we quote to build your website is a one-off cost that covers the initial design, build and page population of your site, subject to specific details detailed in our quotation.
If you require updates or additions/deletions to your website after it has gone live, then you can either do this yourself using any CMS (content management system) that has been supplied*, or you can pay us to undertake the work.
You will need to pay us for hosting, support and any on-going provision of software (such as our cmsXtra content management software). You will have to pay this for the life of the site and is typically a modest monthly fee (or annual if you prefer).
* In order to maximise security we only allow access to the site admin system of our cmsXtra based websites from known IP addresses. If you want to update your own site frequently it is highly desirable that you have a Static IP Address. You may already have this, but if not your broadband provider should be able to provide you with one often at no cost of for a fairly trivial additional fee. Most broadband connections designed for business rather than home use will come with a static IP as default, but check with your provider.
