If you are a confident computer user and you are on a tight budget, you may find one of the many build your own website service online just right. You rarely need to learn anything too technical, but you will need to make sure you have time to sit down and become accustomed to the user interfaces (which can sometimes be a little fiddly.)
Predesigned templates can be a fantastic way to get a website up quickly at a lower cost and they can be adapted to match the branding of your business. One point to note however is that the templates can be purchased by more than one business so you can’t guarantee that there won’t be another business out there with a very similar website to you.
We work with you to build a unique designed website with customised functionality from e-commerce to online product catalogues, finance calculators and much more. Bespoke sites will cost more to build as they take more time, but this is the better option if you would like a site that is unique to you and perfectly tuned for your business.
Prices for building your own website start from FREE (but more often than not, be prepared to pay up to £20 per month).
Predesigned template sites start from £150+VAT (which includes the cost of the theme license, setup of a basic hosting package (free for 1 year) and install of the theme. Then it's down to you to customise the site how you want. If you would prefer us to make the customisations, we charge an hourly rate (currently £55+VAT per hour). Depending on the number of customisations you require this can take anything from 1-10 hours. We are always happy to price in advance, so you can work out how much you need to budge for.
As every bespoke website is unique, every price is different and it all comes down to your requirements. But as a guide price £1500+VAT is an average price for a 5-page brochure website. All bespoke sites are fully responsive (meaning they will look good on mobiles and tablets too. Bespoke sites with e-commerce start from around £5,000+VAT depending on the complexity of the store.
Well, that's an interesting question! We're much like other web design companies (the good ones that is), we all offer similar services, but our prices will differ quite a bit. You may be able to get a site built by a freelancer for less, but with us, you don't just get a web designer. We have a team of multi-talented people here providing graphic design, photography, marketing, SEO and much more.

We're office based so we can offer a place for you to sit down in peace to discuss your project with us. We invest in software, technology and learning to ensure we can offer a great service.
