Frequently Asked Questions

 

You might have some questions for us. We've tried to answer some of the most common ones here ...

 

Q: How much does it cost for a website?

A: This is one of our most common questions, and not an easy one to answer. Much depends on exactly what it is that you need. For example, a quick website publishing your whereabouts and some information about your company can be finished a lot quicker than a complete on-line shop with e-commerce integration.

 

When you come to us, be clear about what it is that you want ... don't worry about the jargon and the technical side of things - we can deal with that for you. If your clear about what you need then we can understand where you want to get to quickly. We charge a flat hourly rate for our work and provided you don't change direction about what you want in the middle of a project our final invoice will never exceed our original quote to you. Contact Us for a chat and we can give you some guidance which will help.

 

 

Q: Can you write all the website content for me ?

A: We could do this for you but we prefer not to. You will be more of an expert in your field than we are and so it will take time for us to understand your business in a way that optimally gets the message across. This will take time, which will ultimately cost you. Of course we can do this for you, but to help keep your costs to a minimum we recommend that you provide us with suggested content for each section of your website.

 

If you are writing your website content we recommend that you prepare this in Microsoft Word format or in a text editor like Windows Notepad. Having this information already prepared can greatly reduce the final cost to you.

 

 

Q: I'm not very good at writing web site copy ... can you help me with this ?

A: We can help you with this and we will review all content that goes on your site to help you get a good position in search engines like Google, Ask and Yahoo.

 

 

Q: Is there anything I can do to reduce the final cost to me of my website ?

A: We understand that everyone has to work to a budget. We believe that there are 3 things that can greatly reduce the final cost to you of your website:

 

* Be clear about your vision, we can help develop your vision and enhance it but if you are clear about what you are looking for and communicate this to us this will help reduce your costs;


* Prepare your website content for each section. If you can provide this to us in Ms Word or Windows Notepad format then this will reduce the amount of time our designers have to spend producing website content. This will help reduce your costs;


* Optimise your website images. If you have images that you would like us to put on your website, e.g. photographs etc. ... optimise these for use on the web, if you can provide these to us in either .jpg or .gif format and in a reasonably small file size this means that we do not have to spend time optimising and scanning graphics etc. You would be surprised how much time this can take. If you do this, this will help reduce your costs.

 

 

Q: Do you provide hosting space for my website ?

A: Once your website is built you must place it on a computer that is permanently connected to the internet (don't worry, we can organise this for you).

 

This will allow your potential customers to view your website at any time, day or night. We do not provide hosting ourselves, but we have worked with several companies over the past 10 years that we can highly recommend. Of course, you may use your own hosting provider. Our initial quote to you will always include costs for hosting your website for the first year, i.e. hosting costs are included in the price for the first year.
