We offer what we believe is a very competitive rate for web-design, hosting if required (through our own preferred third party supplier), maintenance and support.

Our Design Principles

Keep it simple, relevant and usable. We don’t try and make our sites overly flashy with too many flash graphics and inbuilt movies. For most web users there is nothing more annoying than waiting ages for a web page to load, and then being asked to download various add-ins and players in order to actually view the content. Our favourite example of a popular website which follows these principles is - one of the most popular sites on the planet.

Relevance comes from the content. Whilst you may be able to attract lots of users to your site through adding irrelevant but popular content they’re not likely to stay very long, come back, or recommend your site, least of all find you to buy the product or service you’re selling.

Usability is back to the simplicity side. Simple navigation and straightforward links are key to a successful site that you want browsed at anything more than home page level. Again many sites fall down by trying to be too clever about floating navigation bars and hotspots. We also ensure multi-device compatibility, including tablets and of course mobiles.

So what can we offer?

We can help you design and build most types of websites, from simple flat page html sites to advertise a single product or service, to more complex interactive sites with forms, shopping carts, and the bells and whistles that you need to make your site and product fly.  We also specialise in website search engine optimisation (SEO). We can even offer a comprehensive Photography service if required.

How about hosting & support?

We also offer an ongoing personalised support service to our customers. We use one of the UK’s best known and reliable third party hosting companies to host all our sites.

So how much will it all cost?

As with all things this depends on what is required, but we can build a site for as little as £750 and support and host it for as little as £150 a year. Let us know what you need and we’ll be happy to provide you a detailed estimate

Can you build me a mobile website?

We have been building mobile websites since 2012 - simple, easy to use and most importantly cross platform compatible. Increasingly however with better broadband speeds and the increased use of tablets the key thing is to make sure your sites are easily navigated with a finger rather than a mouse. See here more more on our mobile website services.
