Whether you're looking for a basic brochure style website simply advertising your services or a fully content managed ecommerce system allowing users to purchase your goods, I can fulfil your needs.
Having built and run business websites fulltime for several years, I understand the requirements of businesses right down to the finer details. I will gather detailed user requiments beforehand and I will involve you in every aspect of the planning, design, implementation and testing process as little or as much as you wish
All of my sites are developed to the latest usability guidelines and are fully optimised for search engines - ensuring your site achieves optimum visitor levels.
I will also advise on other techniques which can boost your online presence such as utilising social networking services to distribute your news and to engage with your customers.
The cost of a development depends on the complexity, but you can use the following options as a guide.
This could be a 4/5 page site which provides information on your goods or services. There is no database development involved and the site is not searchable.
Guide Price*: £300 - £500
This would be a larger site, possibly around 5-20 pages with a back-end database storing user and product information, allowing visitors to search, register and login.
Guide Price*: £500 - £1,000
Pretty much as described above, but with a more complicated database structure and advanced funtionality.
If you want to control what goes on your website and when, rather than continuing to pay a web developer to add to the site for you, you need a Content Management System , or 'CMS' for short.
We can create a CMS for your existing website or we can develop a new site for you, incorporating a CMS. A CMS is a set of web-pages, usually password protected and hidden in an admin section of your website, which will allow you to login and edit your website's content from anywhere by filling in simple forms. Any changes you make can be instantly published, making editing the site a breeze - and cutting the cost of sending simple changes to your web developer.
Unless you already have a web host, all websites will be hosted by my preferred hosting provider, Netplan Internet Soultions.
