Our team has been building web experiences since 2006 and in that time we have collectively gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge. This FAQ answers many of the frequently asked questions we were asked along the way.
I’m new to this whole website thing, how does it work?
Never fear, that’s why we are here. You can learn about our time-proven process as outlined on our Pricing page.
How much does a website cost?
It very much depends on what you want. Our website projects start at £4,447. This is what everyone starts with, and it contains what we believe every quality website requires, at a minimum, to be successful. This may well fully meet your needs. However, based on your goals and requirements you may want or need more features on your site. These can be purchased as separate optional add ons. See our Pricing page for more details.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A basic website typically takes between 4 and 8 weeks from beginning to end.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, and we can help you get your domain name. We generally manage all the hosting too. However, if you need to use your own host, we can usually accommodate that.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
Yes it will. All the websites we design are fully responsive and are designed to work on all devices.
Do you do eCommerce/Online Store websites?
What is a Content Management System?
A Content Management System (CMS) is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection. That said, we also offer services to maintain it on your behalf.
Do you provide training?
Yes, we provide all our clients with training on maintaining their website where applicable.
Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?
Yes, we can. As part of your project, we can include social media and email marketing services.
What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimisation is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get.
There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on regular, well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key.
Do you write the content for my site?
We don’t directly write your content, however, if you need help with this we can put you in contact with a copywriter who specialises in writing for the web.
Can you design my logo?
We focus on what we’re good at – designing and building websites, however if you need someone to create your logo for you we have relationships with several graphic designers who specialise in logos and branding.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.co.uk
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer housed in a data centre that runs your website.
