WordPress Web Design & Development
Our sites are all built with the WordPress framework meaning you can easily manage your website yourself once it’s built and they are all optimized for responsive display, so they’ll look great on tablets and smartphones.
After your initial enquiry, we’ll have a quick chat to find out what you require and if we can help. If you are local to Hove (don’t worry if you aren’t, we also work by phone or email too) then we will arrange a face-to-face meeting to discuss your requirements further. At that point we will discuss the price and what it includes.
Once we have all the relevant information we build your website on one of our servers. You will be given access to this so you can see the website being built and can easily advise us what you like and what you don’t.
Once we have thoroughly tested the site and you are happy with it we can quickly and easily transfer the site to your domain and go ‘Live’.
It is, of course, important for you to keep your website up to date once it’s built. As we use the WordPress Framework to build our sites, it’s super easy for you to log in and make changes yourself! We will of course show you how to do this when your site goes live.
Once the site is complete and ‘live’ you will then be responsible for updating and maintaining it, including routine and security updates.
This is an extremely important part of running a website.
A poorly maintained website not only looks stale, it can also rank poorly in Google and is at a much higher risk from potential hackers.
If you would prefer to leave this work to someone else so you can concentrate on running your business then we do offer competitively priced care packages to keep you covered. More information on our care packages can be found here.
Price and value.
Asking the price of a website is like asking the price of a car. If you compare a second hand family car to a brand new Mercedes, the price difference is vast, although both basically do the same job by getting you from A to B.
The need for a good looking and well developed website is a very important factor for your business. Potential customers now look at the site of a business before spending money with a business.
The quality of your website is seen as a direct reflection of the quality of your business.
We know from experience that people like to have an idea of price before contacting us so as a rough guide, a simple no frills single page brochure website will start from approx. £600. Prices for multi-page and E-Commerce will depend on the complexity of features needed and amount of content.
The prices quoted relate to the design of the website only. They don’t include purchase of the website name or the various elements required to keep a website running which include things like hosting, security, updating, and backups.
It is an old saying but you do get what you pay for.
We know there are ‘designers’ out there offering websites for £99 inclusive of domain name and hosting, but if you are honest with yourself, you know the quality isn’t going to be very good.
We don’t just design websites, we develop them.
A nicely designed site doesn’t help you get good search engine ranking. A well developed and maintained one will.
