What it Costs
The money page....or the ‘nitty-gritty’
Let’s be honest here – web site design is time consuming and needs expertise if you are doing it properly. There are a range of ways that you can tackle this one with us, and it really does depend on what your available budget is and what you want to achieve. We can help you to re shape your ideas to match your budget and to make sure that your website has impact. It’s often difficult to understand exactly what takes up the time as it all looks so easy! But we are always happy to explain without getting too bogged down in terminology.
It’s fair to say that we are particularly conscious of giving high value and high quality service, because we are consumers too. Mostly however we look to provide a fair deal and ask you to be fair in return.
An average cost of a fairly straightforward website is likely to cost around £500+vat. There are occasional instances of slightly cheaper exceptions, but the above charge is typical.
Densely populated websites with a lot of content or complex ‘behaviour’ of the website adds cost. This is because there will be many more hours work and more technical design/ programming required.
To give you an idea, higher cost websites can be ecommerce or shops, or database driven designed to run memberships or to capture and store information, for example.
Lower cost websites function more as shop windows or information giving with less functionality. But they can still be beautiful and create a wonderful presence for your business.
Domain purchase is FREE of charge – we will only add the domain cost to your bill. Once you have the domain and the design sorted out – your website needs a place to live. Click here to view our Hosting information.

The small print...
You should know that structural redesign of the approved website during the 12 month period won’t be covered, just because you have changed your mind! We’ll happily make general changes to text and update your information, or swap images and so on whenever you like, however.
