HOW WE CHARGE FOR WEBSITE WORK
The first thing to know is we are a small business with low overheads. No large offices or teams of permanent employees to fund. As a result we can charge you less for the same quality of work as a large agency may charge you and we don’t charge for initial meetings to discuss a project.
WEBSITE STARTER PACKAGE QUESTIONS
While we go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your website there are some important questions to read below to ensure you are clear on what is being provided and where any extra costs maybe incurred.
CAN WE MEET WITH YOU TO DISCUSS BUILDING OUR WEBSITE?
Our website packages are an online service and priced accordingly. We are very happy for you to visit our office at an agreed time for a brief meeting (up to 1 hour), or we can schedule in a phone or Zoom call. All further communications from the initial meeting are carried out via email or phone. Additional face to face meetings can be carried out however but at a charge off £25 per hour with a minimum cost of 1 hour and based at our office.
Additional off-site meetings can be carried out at a cost of £50 for the first hour (including travel) and £25 per hour thereafter.
All meeting costs above are Isle of Wight based.
BACKUP, TERMS, SEO, SECURITY AND ANALYTICS
Your website comes with free weekly backup of your site plus cookie notice, website terms, privacy pages and a security package to help keep your site secure from hackers.
Regarding being found on Google, you would need our SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) package. This is a separate item due to the extra amount of time and work required.
We also provide a website page tracking analytics package to see how many visitors you are getting. Again this is an additional cost due to the time to set this up.
When a website goes live it isn’t automatically found on Google hence the additional work. You can however register yourself on “Google My Business” for free https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/business but we must stress that it is a bit like fishing, once you register with Google they will throw the fishing line at your site but if you site doesn’t have the bait (ie the SEO search terms spread throughout your site) then Google won’t necessarily catch the fish.
Please also bear in mind that once you register with Google you won’t instantly have a chance of being found as Google refreshes its algorithm usually once a month.
We can also help you purchase your domain registration if you require. It is a very simple process and domain names (the www bit in your website address bar) are usually less than £10 per year for a .co.uk
You will need some website hosting (server rental) to host your website files. Unlike many online website builders who charge a monthly fee, we only charge a nominal annual fee which can save you in some cases literally hundreds of pounds. Talk to us to find out more.
