If I had a pound for every
time I was asked…
How much does a website cost?
Annoying answer incoming….. it completely varies depending on your requirements.
I work out my quotes based on the amount of time it takes to me to build, and this depends on the style you’re after, whether or not you have the content, if you need me to do keyword research etc.
To give you a rough idea though, my day rate is £350 and a non-e-commerce 5 page portfolio site usually takes me around 3-5 days.
All of my websites are built from scratch, no templates here!
Can you 'do SEO'?
Every website I build is given the best possible chance of ranking organically on Google: well-researched metadata, focussed pages for your target keywords, a responsive design, an SSL certificate, a local Google My Business listing (if appropriate), a sitemap submitted to Google Search Console and Google Analytics configured so we can gain valuable insights further down the line. In laymen’s terms, if you don’t want to appear on Google, use Wix. If you do, hire me!
I can also do SEO on an ongoing basis for your business too…
How long does it take to build a website?
Again, it depends on what you’re after and how complex the build is.
If it’s a fairly simple website and you have the content already created, then this can be as quick as around 1-2 weeks from the point I get the brief. For a more complex e-commerce site, this will, of course, take longer. However, if needed I can work with some of my contacts to help speed up the process.
If you have a specific deadline, please do let me know!
Can you write content for my website?
Yes, no problem. Whether you’re a plumber or a candlestick maker, I’ll happily learn the ropes and write about your business in whichever tone you wish.
Can you create me an email address which matches my domain?
Can you build e-commerce sites?
Yes, I can create for you an e-commerce website which enables your customers to pay via all the popular payment gateways, e.g. PayPal, Stripe etc.
I already have a website, but I want a new one. How does that work?
No biggie! When working with customers who already have a domain, I usually create the overall look and functionality of your new website on a very separate subdomain. Then, only once you’re 1oo% happy, I move it over to the domain you already have.
