Frequently Asked Questions
We have been building websites since 2007 and in that time have gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge. We have crafted this FAQ page to answer some of the asked questions we get asked most.
How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary. Our website projects generally start in the £1,000 – £1,500 range for basic business sites and range upward depending on your unique needs.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The length of time it takes to create a fully functional website is based on several factors. If we undertake custom design work it can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of revisions you require. Smaller sites can often be completed and live in 4 weeks. If you have an urgent need for a website, talk to us, we may be able to get online in a shorter time period.

There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key.
