Frequently asked questions
I am totally new to this "website thing". How does the whole process work?
We have been working on websites for years, and have designed and built 100's of them. Whilst doing this we have built a process that works well and helps us work with businesses all over the UK. View our website process page to see how we work
How much does a website cost?
Website costs can vary from hundreds to thousands of pounds, depending on what complexity is involved in setting up your website and if you have any unique needs — We keep our pricing very simple. Once we have discussed your website requirements with you, we will then email you a set quote. This will include a setup fee, plus monthly hosting options costs, depending on your needs.
What kind of businesses do you work with?
We work with small and medium sized businesses across the UK from all business sectors.
How long does it take to build a website?
Once you have accepted your quote it can take around 2-4 weeks for the website to be ready to launch. This time will vary from project to project though, as it depends on the size and complexity of the website.
What platform do you build your websites on?
All of our websites are built using the open-source Content Management System (CMS) platform WordPress
Can you help me update my existing website that another web firm built?
No. We only support websites that we have fully built. We have this policy so that we can 100% stand behind everything that we craft. There are issues of liability of multiple programmers touching the same code over time.
Can you help me write content for my website?
Nobody knows your business better than yourself, so it's better if you provide the copy for each page of your website - If you are not comfortable in doing this, then you can source a professional copywriter to help you out.
Will my website rank at the top of Google?
We live in a competitive world, and the likelihood is you will have lots of competition from other businesses on keywords you are trying to rank for, some of whom have been around for years and have a long standing online presence. We will build your website with SEO and google rankings in mind, but cannot guarantee that you are going to appear at the top of your chosen searches. If you have a marketing budget, you can do this in the form of google adwords, who charge on a cost per click basis - or facebook ads can be another way to help drive traffic to your website.
Do you offer ongoing SEO
We will build your website with SEO in mind, however we don't offer any ongoing SEO support. We believe the best way for you to drive traffic to your website, without paying SEO companies hundreds of pounds each month, for results they cannot guarantee, is to make sure you have a blog section on your website and post regularly, focusing on the keywords you are trying to rank for - this will create inbound traffic to your website over time, that you wont need to pay for!
Can you help me source photos for my website?
Yes. We will help you source stock photos, from free stock libraries - if you would like to use paid for stock imagery, this will be at an extra cost on top of your quoted set up fee.
Do I own my website?
YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go.
