How much does a new website cost?

It’s difficult to answer this until we’ve discussed your business requirements. Much like buying a car it depends on the quality and the specification you need.

However, for most small businesses our fixed-price packages that include absolutely everything you need, are ideal. Prices for these start at £1495 for a 5 page site. Additional pages are charged at £150/page.

Our pricing is completely transparent and there are no hidden costs.

You’ll find that unlike most agencies, we are completely up front about our prices. The reason for this is that we believe in the quality of our service and that the prices offer excellent value for money.

Can you guarantee #1 position on Google?

Honestly no.

No one can promise this, well not without throwing an enormous amount of money and time at it.

We can however work for or with you on a sensible budget to establish the core elements for a good SEO strategy, namely:

  • Build a standards-based website that incorporates all of the tools necessary to optimise SEO
  • Discuss, research and agree your preferred search terms
  • Organise your website’s content into optimal sections and hierarchy
  • Write or re-write your content so that it’s search engine friendly, user friendly and accessible
  • Use structured data formats and other markup so that search engines and social media sites understand your data
  • Review & monitor your performance metrics and adjust your site and content accordingly

We’ve delivered some outstanding SEO results across a variety of sectors. If you’d like to view some examples of the SEO work and the ranks we’ve achieved for our clients take a look at the SEO projects from our portfolio.

Why shouldn't I build my own website?

You could do it yourself, and there are plenty of website builder solutions out there that promise you a cheap and easy way to build your own website. Squarespace and Wix are examples.

Whilst on face value these companies do a great job of making it look really easy, the reality is that they just don’t measure up in the long run. The visual part of the website you actually see is just a small part of the technical detail necessary to create a website that will work and deliver results.

Here’s a few important reasons why you’d be far better off getting your site built professionally:

  • The design options with drag and drop interfaces are limited
  • It will take far longer than you expect
  • What will you do when you get stuck?
  • SEO relies on the correct technical structure & practices which can’t be achieved using these systems
  • Your competitors’ sites will look superior and work better

The bottom line is that if you’re considering building your own site to save money, in the long run it’ll cost you more in time wasted and missed opportunities. You’ll be far better off if you cost a well-built website into your business plan.

If you’re in any doubt ask yourself this: Would you expect an amateur to be able do your job as well as you?

The chances are the answer’s no. If you’re in business because you’re excellent at what you do, you’ll earn far more by focusing on that, and letting us do an excellent job on your website.

What platform do you build our sites on?

In most cases we build our websites using one of the world’s most popular website platforms called WordPress. Occasionally we will build sites using static html files or in Magento if enterprise level e-commerce is needed.

What’s WordPress?

Well, this website is running on WordPress. It’s our most popular website framework, and now the internet’s leading open source content management system, which powers over 25% of all websites online today.
