A free website can offer shockingly poor value. Sure it may be free, but what does it actually cost you if it cheapens your company image and damages your brand?
The same can be said for most low cost web design offerings out there. Typically you'll get an ugly template design from the mid 1990's, ill-fitting graphics and colour combinations that'll give visitors a migraine.
This is the rub. Low cost usually means cheap, with a side order of nasty.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
We know that most companies and start-ups are a little strapped for cash at the moment, yet you realise to get on you need to get on the web and get on it fast.
We know that not everyone has thousands of pounds to throw at a website but still want the best in design that limited funds can stretch to.
So we came up with our simple site solution.
A fully bespoke, tailor-made website that's from one to six pages in size, that gets your message on-line, gives your customers a point of contact and does it in a professional – and importantly in an attractive way.
A simple, clean site built uniquely for you with not a template in sight. Your look, your brand, your call.
A beautifully simple, simply beautiful low cost website at a price as low as £100 including hosting.
What is a Simple Site?
Nine times out of ten our simple site solution package is the most a small business will need.
Take this site for example - Yes this website is an example of our simple site solution.
We didn't need anything elaborate and we wanted to show you just what kind of site we can build for you at the lower cost end of our web design services.
We took a basic three page site, opted for a free contact form and three extra pages.
Just what do you get with a simple site package?
A unique, fully bespoke site - hand built just for you. We don't use templates. Ever
You'll get a homepage and up to two inner pages included as standard - a contact form and an "about" page. Each page will have a head (the top navigational area), the content and a footer, again with page links.
If you're hooked up to facebook, twitter, linkedin or any other social networks we can connect your site to them and add any other links you feel would be of benefit to your users.
We'll also opitimise your site as we go, using basic on-page SEO for a single keyword or phrase of your choice, helping your site appear higher in the search engine results for that term.
OK that's the basic structure of our simple site – what else does the package involve?
We'll ask you for images that you want included in the site design, such as your logo if applicable, products or services, or anything that your site is about.
We'll ask for the colours you wish to be used within the site and if there are websites that you like the look, style or feel of - it would be good to know of them, so we can best build your new website around your wishes and tastes.
Most importantly we'll ask you for written content – ie the words you want to appear on each page.
Don't feel you have to write a book (although search engines do like pages with 5-600 words or more).
We'll then take your words, images, colours and our take on your taste and morph them through cunning photoshop artistry, coding and all manner of jiggery pokery into a website.
Hopefully a website that you'll love and adore.
Finally we'll upload that website onto our server and if you've asked for an e-mail address we'll let you know how to access your mail.
That's a simple site.
What's the catch?
There is no catch.
We just need you to provide us with the written content you want on the site and images you'd like to use - on time.
You see, to offer hand-built websites at this kind of price, we run a tight ship and it's vitally important that if you want to keep your position in our build program that we get what we need from you promptly.
Don't worry - we'll send you full and simple instructions when you decide to use our low cost web design service.
