The prime requirement for a website is to
deliver a message. This it must do without distracting or misleading
It must also be:
- fast to download to the visitor.
- easy and intuitive to navigate around.
- pleasing to the eye.
- easy to read and understand.
- consistent and informative.
- inexpensive to create and maintain.
Anybody can create a website using any of
the plethora of tools available, many of which are free, that
is why we provide hosting for those who wish to do so.
But there is more to it than just creating
a website and putting it somewhere. That is why we offer a design/host/manage
service for the less knowledgeable. For example, attracting a
good ranking on the search engines is usually critical to the
success of a website. Do you know how the search engines rank
a web-page ?
Our design, create and host services will relieve
you of those problems and place them in our care. There will still
be some work for you to do , of course you have to decide what
pages you need and give us the words and any images you can provide.
We can help you with some of that.
We then create a site which we perceive is in
keeping with your requirements. Often we get it wrong, so when
we show you a draft, you tell us what to change. Only when you
are 100% happy with your website do we make it go live.
If you need a website up and running quickly,
you might like to consider our template website offer. This means
that you choose a layout from a range of pre-designed sites into
which we put your data. Whilst this gets results quickly, it is
not bespoke to your own individual design. We can of course, maintain
colour compatibility etc. with your company livery.
Whichever path you choose, there are many questions
you need to ask yourself but there are two questions you must
consider very carefully :
- What do I want the site to achieve ?
- Who is the target audience ?
We will discus these issues with you because
it will help us to achieve your aims.
For a brochure type website we have a minimum
£350 which includes up to five pages, additional pages £60.
