Blog post Frequently asked questions

 

Here are some of my frequently asked questions

 
  • How much does a website cost?

The answer largely depends on how many pages your website has, bespoke functionality and any third-party integrations, so it’s impossible to say without a chat about your specific requirements. We offer a free consultation and quote, so contact us today to find out!

  • How long does it take to design a website?

This again varies depending on the size and scale of your project. A small site could take just a week or two, whereas a much larger site could take anything between 2 to 12 months.

  • What is the process for designing a new website?

Typically we’ll start with a chat about your business and goals. You may already have a brief that gives us an idea of your design and functionality requirements, otherwise, we’ll work with you to create one. A sitemap structure is then produced to determine the sections, pages and content required for the website. From there we’ll put together some initial design concepts for you to review. Based on your comments and feedback I will evolve the design to establish the final look and feel. Once the designs have been signed off, our development team then begin to transform it into a usable, mobile-friendly site, as well as develop any functionality requirements. Finally, the site is then thoroughly tested and optimised before being unveiled to the world!

  • Do you design for mobile and tablet devices?

Of course! Every website we build is responsive, meaning that it will work on even the very latest mobile phones and tablet devices.

  • Do you provide web hosting too?

Yes. We provide a managed hosting and support service and take care of all the infrastructure requirements needed to host your new website. We can even liaise with your existing provider to arrange a smooth transfer.

  • Can you optimise my site for Google?

Yes. We will initially undertake a range of on-page optimisation best practices to ensure you can be found in the search engines. Such measures include populating pages with relevant meta titles and descriptions, configuring an XML sitemap, setting up Google Search Console, using SEO-friendly URLs and ensuring the site loads quickly. This does not however guarantee that your site will appear first or on page one of the search results, especially for competitive keywords and phrases. In such cases, you may wish to engage our ongoing search engine optimisation (SEO) campaign services.

  • Can I manage the website myself?

Yes. The majority of the sites we build use a content management system (CMS) which allow you to add and edit pages, news articles, images, video, files and much more. No technical knowledge is required and we provide training and support as standard.

  • I only need a few pages designed, can you help?

Yes! We regularly design microsites and landing pages for marketing campaigns, events, promotions and more. Just let us know what you need.

  • Can I see some examples of your work?

Yes! Visit our recent work page to see some of the projects we’ve recently worked on.

  • Do you work internationally?

Of course! The advent of online conferencing tools such as Zoom and Skype, to name a few, makes working with companies anywhere in the world pretty simple.

  • Do you offer ongoing help with our new site once it’s launched?

I Provide web support and maintenance, we’ll be here for you.
