The whole way that websites are created, hosted and managed is different now. In the old days you'd produce a visual, buy some server space, and then actually build the site. It was expensive, time consuming and "messy" because most of the time the client didn't really understand what he was paying for, how it was really going to work and what he was going to be responsible for.
Nowadays, sites are hosted on cloud hosted platforms with all the server maintenance handled for you and new functions and features added on a regular basis. The actual "design" is the last piece in the jigsaw. We build the structure of the site first, add some initial pages and content, and then involve you in creating a design that places most emphasis on how the site is navigated and how content is presented. We then show you how to add more content. It is the logical, and most cost effective, way to evolve your website.
Yes, it needs to look great, but that doesn't mean it needs to be fancy. When YOU browse or shop online, you like sites that are fast loading, easy to navigate (so you can find what you want quickly), tell you what you need to know (ie benefits), and what you need to do (ie nearest stockist, call or buy online). Why should you want your own website to be any different?
Our advice is leave it to us to begin with. Firstly with our "No Obligation" service, we are the ones taking the initial risk. Let us do our stuff first. The only things that matter are whether your customers can find it, can navigate to what they want, can assess information on the product/service being offered to them, and then act on it. We want to achieve this for you without you incurring extra expense or having less of your money spent where it should be. Once we have created the structure and added some content, we can then take on board any design related refinements.
In essence our service is centred round a robust chassis that we can easily adapt for any make, model, or colour of car. Providing the car does everything you want it to do (ie start first time, comfortable, powerful, economic and easy handle), you'll be happy. If it turns heads when you drive past, that's an added bonus, but that won't earn you extra money! We concentrate on what matters to you. You'll be judged by how easy the site is to find, navigate and use - NOT by fancy design features.
By concentrating on the structure and content first, and finalising the design last, we are able to substantially reduce the typical cost of setting a website up, and can concentrate on the other key fundamentals involved.
By not getting your website set up properly, you are wasting time, costing yourself business, and losing ground to your competitors. You could be setting your online business back years.
We see loads of small businesses struggling to set their own websites up. If you don't know what you're doing, it can be time consuming, frustrating and the end result is never what you hoped it would be.
We believe you'll get better results if a professional builds your site for you and then shows you how to edit and use it. Our unique "No Obligation" website set up and hosting service is designed to take all the strain and hassle away from you, and ensures your website is set up on a firm foundation, all without breaking the bank.
We don't cut any corners, but by concentrating on what's important and utilising up to date technology that saves time creating and populating a website, we can save you time and money - and your website will have a much better chance of being successful!
Our Small Business Website Set Up Service costs from as little as £500 plus VAT and includes:
We also provide a more comprehensive, detailed and hands on service for those of you with larger or more complex projects and who need more practical help planning their website, identifying key objectives and finding solutions to achieve them.
It includes creating a more bespoke design for the website, help with writing and presenting content, adding all your site content for you, and ensuring your website is properly optimised and promoted via search engines along with other avenues such as social media. It's hard to be more exact about costs until we talk, but as a guide, the initial production budget required for this kind of website development could be anything from £1,500 plus VAT, depending on what's required to make your website successful.
It doesn't matter. In fact, in many cases it's helpful and keeps your costs down as we can adapt the current design and make it responsive, base the new site on the current navigation structure (albeit it with modifications and improvements) and migrate the content from the current site to the new one. We can concentrate on implementing the things that do matter.
