Most consumers today are online based and searching for business services via the internet, if your business does not have a website you effectively have no online advertising. Having a website in place for your business means customers can find you via Google and other search engines to engage with your services.
It is always best to consider what information you want to convey to your customers firstly and then try to structure this information into relevant categories. We can advise on how best to structure the pages on your website and also give direction to content creation.
This completely depends on what you need, our smaller brochure websites can be built in around 2-3 weeks providing we have all the required content within the timescales. With larger more functional websites these can take from 6-8 weeks to properly design website wireframes, concepts, customer flows, databases etc.. The best way to determine this is to provide us with what you need your website to do and we will give you a rough timeframe for development and launch.

This depends on what type of website you want but generally, we could need:
Photos of your team & place of work – (our in-house photographer can arrange a photo shoot at your location if you require headshots/photos).
Content for the website – (text, images, video, PDF’s etc..)
Product Images and descriptions/sizing – This is only required if you are building an E-commerce website.
Good response time with communications – Occasionally we will need some of your input/feedback on design concepts, typography, images, video and functionality. It is great if we can maintain a constant chain of communication throughout the project to ensure we meet the deadlines of the website build and keep everything running as smoothly as possible.
