Why Wordpress?

We use Wordpress CMS, which enables you to be in full control with websites that are easy to edit and update. It includes unique features that make it the most popular content management system available. We’ll deliver you a CMS that’s built to meet your requirements, providing you with a simple, user-friendly and updateable interface.

WordPress powers nearly a third of the world’s websites, including the complex sites of major brands you’re familiar with such as; Disney, Sony, Vogue, Mercedes Benz and many more. 

How much do your websites cost?

It depends on how big a site it is and what you need it to do. If you need to integrate a booking system, bespoke functionality or an e-commerce store, then this is going to factor into your website cost.

The fastest way to get your project costed is to give us a call and speak to a member of our team to discuss your requirements, they’ll be happy to help with any questions you have.

Can I build my own website?

There are a lot of basic website builders out there for you to use. You can select one of their generic templates and put your content in.

Here are a few things you’ll need to consider:
• Do you have the knowledge, design ability and technical skills to know what works best?
• How many of your competitors are using the same template design?
• Will it be fully responsive across all devices and rank well in search engine results?

These website builders are great for personal blogs, but not ideal if you’re looking for something memorable, relevant and professional for your business.

How long do websites take to build?

Again, this depends on size and functionality. Including the planning and content creation. Typically, a 6-page website project could take between 4-6 weeks.

What other costs are there to be aware of?

Domain Name– These can range in price depending on what you want. We can advise you on what domain names would work well for your business.

Hosting – Prices vary depending on the level of hosting. As site speed is an important factor to the success of your website, you’ll want to make sure you get the right one for your needs.

SSL – Highly recommended as Search Engines post a danger warning for any site without one. SSL certificates make your website secure. Some hosting providers will include a free SSL with their hosting package.

Email – Optional. Custom emails such as john@yourdomain.co.uk will need to be handled through your hosting provider.

What happens after it goes live?

Maintenance – With Wordpress websites, the ‘launch it and leave it’ attitude doesn’t work. Wordpress is built up of three things: core Wordpress files, themes and plugins. As newer versions of these files are released, the old ones will need updating. You can update these files yourself, but most people don’t want to, as done incorrectly, this may break your site. This is where our website maintenance package comes in.

Blogs – Search engines love fresh content. Regular blogging is a great way for you to attract traffic to your website and generate an audience.

How can I get more traffic to my website?

Search Engine Optimisation – We build all our websites with what’s called ‘foundational optimisation’. This means we set up your site structure to be easy to navigate and access all the content. There are many SEO strategies you can use to boost your website’s search rankings such as backlinks and citations.

Pay Per Click Advertising – This involves creating adverts through a program such as Google Adwords to appear above organic results for certain search terms. This can be an extremely effective form of advertising, however, it does come at a cost, needs setting up properly and requires regular monitoring and maintenance.
