Frequent asked questions
How much does it cost for a website?
We consider ourselves to be at the lower end of the scale when it comes to what design agencies charge for websites. However it is impossible to give an accurate quote without fully understanding your business and its goals or objectives. Having said this, it’s really easy to get a quote from us – just give us a quick call and we’ll be happy to have a friendly and informal chat about your business. You should expect to be asked things like:
- What does your business do?
- What are you hoping your website will do for you?
- Do you already have a website we can look at?
- Are there any websites out there on the world wide web that you really like?
- What do you already have in terms of content for your website (photos, videos, written text and stuff)?
- Are you working to a budget?
It usually takes about 10 minutes to get a good overview of what you need, and we should be able to give you an accurate quote right there and then whilst we’re on the phone together.
How long does it take for a website to be designed?
The basic websites can be turned around quickly once we have all the content required from you. Usually one to two weeks.
For a more complex website, this can take two to four weeks dependent on finalising concept.
What do you use to develop a website?
We pretty much use WordPress exclusively these days. Long gone are the days of designing websites using static HTML and Dreamweaver! WordPress is great because it’s always developing and evolving inline with current web standards. It’s also super customisable if you know how to use it, and we’re confident that we can create any design that we’re ever asked to attempt using it.
Do you offer training, so I can manage my own website?
Yes we offer training, this can be discussed during the development stage.
Do you manage websites for customers?
We love to build working relationships with our customers. So we are more than happy to be involved in contributing to customers online presence, as much as needed.
Will my website work on phones and things?
Mega important question! For most businesses the majority of your website visitors will be using smart phones to view your website. With this in mind, everything we do takes into consideration the experience that ALL your viewers will have, regardless of which device they may be using. Yes was the short answer!
Do you offer hosting?
Yes we do, but if you would prefer your own we can assist you in setting this up and point you in the direction of some hosting providers.
