All websites developed are tailor-made for you to make your business a success. Once we’ve fully discussed what your website needs to achieve this, I can provide you with the exact cost which I am confident will give you a return on your investment.
Portfolio/Marketing websites – projects typically cost in the region of £2,400+*
eCommerce websites – projects costs start from £4,800*
This does not include the cost of website hosting, software licencing or content entry.
*The prices do not include UK VAT/Taxes as I am not registered.
Once we have agreed on your website requirements and you have paid the initial payment, I will schedule in the work. There is usually a lead time of 1-2 weeks. During this time, you can be getting your content together.
Once the price is agreed upon, payment is split into three stages at key milestones of the project: 40% upfront, 30% at an agreed milestone, and then the final 30% before going live with your website. Payment is made via bank transfer. International customers pay via either PayPal or International Bank Transfer; fees are paid by the client.
Copy/Content – I ask for draft content during the initial stages of the project. This allows me to discuss how your content should be structured to ensure it delivers your goals. The final copy is needed before the website development build stage.
Photos/imagery – High-resolution images of your product, service or branding is essential to do your business justice. If you don’t have these yet we can discuss the type of shots and styling which would be required.
Branding – A vector version (.ai, .eps, .pdf or .svg file) of your logo is required if possible, and any other branding/marketing assets you have.
If you are missing any of these let me know on initial contact and I’ll be able to put you in touch with freelance graphic designers to help.
My process encourages you to get involved. You know your business better than I do, without this knowledge being fed into the project we won’t end up with the best result. I would want us to approach your project as partners rather than a client and developer.
It all depends on certain factors, like, how the original theme was made and its complexity. I can always look at how your theme was originally constructed and give you an independent assessment. Please contact me to find out if I can help.
Absolutely! All websites I build are on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS). This means you can edit and add content to the site. There is no ‘lock in’. Training sessions will be provided if needed to make sure you are confident with updating the content of your website.
Yes! I can arrange one-to-one training sessions with you to walk you through managing your website. Ideally in-person if you live in my area, or over a Microsoft Teams screen share. I would also like to keep in contact with you beyond the launch of your website, to make sure it continues to work for your business.
Yes. The CMS and theme framework I use are 100% SEO friendly. I will build your website with on-page SEO and ensure that Google’s search bots can crawl your website with ease. I will make sure the website is well structured, validates to the latest web standards, images are optimised, contains all fields for metadata, friendly URL structure and is fast to load.
I do not. I feel it’s important the client has complete control of their website domain and hosting, I do not ‘lock’ them in. I will be happy to make a recommendation and help you get set up, including any email addresses or SSLs you need.
Your website is an investment, you need to look at the long-term value that hiring the right developer will give you. Your investment won’t only just get you a modern website; I have years of experience creating sites which connect with users, converting browsers into buyers, delivering you a return on your investment. I’d be working collaboratively with you to make sure we achieve your business goals, and provide a website which can be updated easily by yourself.
Yes! It is recommended that you should purchase an SSL certificate for your website. Customers are becoming increasingly more informed about the safety of the internet. If they can see your website has gone that bit further to be secure it can only help their impression of you. Google is also rewarding websites that have an SSL with higher rankings.
