How much will it cost?
Well, not nearly as much as if you went to a commercial web design company. As I said before I enjoy web design and I don't look to make lots of profit, nor do I have loads of overheads to meet. My costs depend on two things:
1. How long it takes me to produce it which is directly linked to the complexity and size of the site
2. How much on-costs I incur. That's things like the purchasing of special imagery (photos etc), the cost of the initial hosting and stuff like that. I don't look to profit out of the on-costs, and I get approval from you first.
Typically my web sites cost the client between £Free-£300 plus on-costs which are typically say £20 for purchased imagery and about £50-60 for the initial 2 years web hosting and email services. I'll agree a price with you beforehand. There will be no unpleasant surprises!
What happens if I want to change my web site in the future?
You can call/email me and I'll quote you a one off change price. Little things like a change of contact details will be without charge. It depends on the work required. Incidentally you will get access to all the web site code and imagery so that if I'm not around for any reason you can ask someone else to do it.
Is my site based on a template?
I tend to design a template unique to your requirements in order to give any visitor to your site some continuity from page to page. However unlike many budget web design sites I do not force clients to use standard templates. Each client gets a uniquely designed site; the base layout, colour scheme, navigation and web pages are agreed with you early on in the process.
Will my site be visible on Tablets and Mobiles
Most web sites today are designed such that the page fits on to a tablet or mobile in portrait view. Scrolling downward is acceptable for large pages. However I can design differing layouts and content to make the site more readable on a mobile. The site software can determine automatically what type of device is being used and pick the layout to suit.
Furthermore many providers do not use the latest HTML5 developer language and animated objects such as slide shows do not work on iPads or other Apple Mac computers. Apple does not support Adobe Flash content.
Do I get my own domain address? (e.g. www.anybodyenterprises.co.uk)?
Yes you do. I research what is available for you as part of my service.
Do I get my own email addresses?
Yes you do. You get up to 10 email addresses as part of the hosting package e.g. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or whatever. These can be set up on all popular "POP" email packages such as Outlook or Thunderbird alternatively you can use web mail to access your email from anywhere in the world with an internet connection
Can you design a new logo for me?
I can use your existing logo, or design a new one for you in-keeping with your site design. I can incorporate any design into your web site. I can also design business cards and stationery incorporating your logo such you get a complete theme running through your communications. I can even put it at the bottom of your emails as part of your signature if you wish. Whether you use it on an email or simply switch it off is entirely up to you on an email by email basis.
Can I put a map location on my site?
Yes, I can put a Google location map on your web site
Can I have slide-shows or movies on my site?
Yes you can. There are many different styles to choose from.
Can I have sound on my web site?
Yes you can. I would advise against having sound on your intro page as this can be embarrassing for viewers in an open office environment!
Can I have special effects like this "accordion" effect on my web site?
Can I have links to other web sites on my web site?
Can I incorporate PayPal on my web site
Can I have links to social media like Facebook on my site
Of course. I can even design your home page on Facebook as well, in keeping with the theme of your web site
