Frequently Asked Questions

Over the years we've answered thousands of customer questions. Here are the one's we're asked most frequently.

How much does a website cost?

Yes you've guessed it, "it depends". We design, build and deliver first class client sites starting at £1,000 with an eCommerce site starting at £2,500.  We pay a lot of attention to the details as well as search engine friendliness so it's not just a site, it's ready to start earning you money.

What is a content management system (CMS)?

A CMS is a platform that allows you to login an admin area and make changes to the website yourself.

What Content Management System do you use?

We develop most of our sites in WordPress. Where appropriate we use Woocommerce for our eCommerce platform. Over the years WordPress has become a world class CMS but there are many others to choose from other open source platforms, paid platforms, and software as a service options. We've found our skills in PHP programming work really well with our WordPress skills allowing us to create anything our clients require.

How long does it take to design and build a website?

Here's our process:

  • Discussion with you about goals and requirements.
  • Research into your market and keyword research.
  • Create a site map.
  • Create a functional specification.
  • Create wireframes to show your new sites layout.
  • Do the design.
  • Put the design into development.
  • Add the customers content and fine tune the site.
  • Go live.

We like 8-12 weeks for this as it allows time for thought and reflection as well as time for clients to edit current content and create new content. We have delivered sites in 2 weeks which required strong commitment from the client as well as ourselves, so anything is possible.

Will my website work on mobile devices?

Yes. Every site we build now is responsive or adaptive for all screen sizes.

Do I need a Domain Name?

Yes. We can help you with this, it's a fairly simple process to procure your domain name and we can advise on the merits of the choices you have available. We recommend you purchase your domain name and keep ownership. Do not let your web developer own the domain name.

We include 2 hours one on one or one to many training in all our website builds.  We also have a complete video training manual in your ADMIN area on the site with each subject broken into a short 5 minute video. If you prefer a written manual we have that too which you can download and use yourself.

Simply put it's the process of making your website as search engine friendly as possible to attract traffic for keyword searches people are doing to find your products or services online.
