What do I need to do to get a website?

First we ask you to fill in a brief questionnaireso we can understand what you’re after – don’t worry if you’re not exactly sure, we just need the broad picture. We’ll then arrange a time to have a chat so we can flesh out details and build a plan together.

We can look after everything from registering your domain to creating content so you don’t have to do anything except offer direction. Or we can just provide the technical aspects of website creation if you have everything already and know how you want things. Or anywhere in between – we’ll work to your needs.

How much does it cost to get a website made?

We offer bespoke websites – from one page to complex e-commerce stores – so we don’t have a one size fits all price for how much it costs to get a website made, but our Pricingpage will give you a guideline of our competitive rates. For an exact quote please contact us to discuss your needs and we’ll tailor a proposal for you.

How long will it take for the website to be online?

We like to get things done. The size and complexity of a website will affect the time it takes, but our aim is to deliver the project as soon as possible – as a rough idea, a brochure type website usually takes about 3-4 weeks.

Things you can do to speed up the process:

  • get all necessary permissions signed off in your company or organisation
  • have website content ready and available
  • ensure timely replies for feedback or other communications from us
How long will it take for my website to rank top on Google?

A new website will usually take at least two months to start showing up on Google. This does not necessarily mean in a top ranking spot.

To rank on the first page for a search term will depend on a number of factors but especially how much competition there is for that term. For example if your company name is quite unique, let’s say Branigan & Bower, there’s unlikely to be a lot of competition for that search term so your website will likely rank near the top for it fairly quickly after Google has done the initial on-boarding.

If however your company sells bed linen, ranking top for that broad search term will likely take a lot more time, money and effort as there will be a lot of companies competing for it.

Search Engine Optimisation involves techniques and strategies that we can implement in the back-end and we’ll advise you on what you can do too, to help optimise your website’s chances to rank higher faster.

Can you help me with images and other content?

Yes, we can help you source content or create it for you – from images to logos, from whole articles to just proof reading.

Will the website be mobile friendly?

Yes, all our websites are fully responsive, meaning your website will look good on any screen size whether mobile, tablet or desktop.

Do you provide on-going support?

Yes, we offer maintenance care plans to ensure your website continues at optimal performance and we can be there if anything goes wrong, or if you want to make modifications. We offer a basic plan for technology updates, and optional add-ons for more extensive cover – you’ll find more details on our Services page.

Where are you based?

We’re based in London, Kent and Hampshire but we have clients from all over the UK and abroad. Tools like Zoom mean physical distance is not an issue, and after all we are in the online business.

I have no tech skills, can I still get a website?

Yes! There’s no need for you to have any technical skills at all. After your website is launched we offer on-going maintenance care plans which can include a fully comprehensive service where we’ll take care of everything for you, even frequent content changes.

What if I want to change something on my site later?

No problem. We can make content changes for you as part of our on-going maintenance plans, or we can set up access for you to add content yourself, without accidentally breaking the site. Let us know your requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Do I need to be a business to have a website?

To have a website you don’t have to be a business, and we create websites for individuals, groups, charities and businesses, but we can’t give legal or tax advice and you’ll need to check with your legal advisor for your particular situation.

I know what I want, what’s next?

Great! Contact us and we’ll be happy to help you realise your vision as soon as possible.

I don’t know exactly what I want, can you help me?
