What can I put in my website pages?

If it’s included in our advertised package price, you can have pretty much whatever you want so long as it doesn’t require any specialist work such as: membership login areas, availability, booking systems, calculators etc. We can still do it but please ask for a price first. Pictures, text, price lists and videos are no problem. Send us as much as you want and a qualified designer will create your lovely new pages.

What if I need extra pages?

Your content management system allows you to add more pages yourself but if you need us to do it, we charge £90 inc. per page. There’s no limit on the amount of text, photos, logos, price lists etc. you can have in your pages so long as it doesn’t require specialist work such as membership login areas, availability calendars, booking systems, calculators etc. for that, please ask us for a separate quote.

What is hosting?

Every website needs hosting. It’s where the website lives. The domain is the ‘www’ bit which you promote but you’ll also need a website designed and hosted somewhere. The domain is the websites unique identifier and it’s linked to the hosting so people can find your website when they type in the URL (the website address). Domains and websites are like a number plates on cars.

How much does hosting cost?

If you choose a website from the starter, business or premium packages then you don’t have to worry about that because it’s included for the first year. After that, the standard fee applies which is…

Starter Package Hosting Fee £110 inc.per year (first year free)
Business Package Hosting Fee £110 inc.per year (first year free)
Premium Package Hosting Fee £160 inc.per year (first year free)

Create your own extra pages

The CMS (Content Management System) is called WordPress and it makes it easy to modify or add extra pages yourself. With one click, you can add a new page and start adding your content right away. Unless your page content requires fancy content such as dynamic database-driven content, you don’t need to worry about what you can put in your pages either – you can have text, images and even videos. Your biggest challenge will be designing the web page so it’s SEO friendly but you can read about that below. If you’ve used Microsoft Word, then the interface you use to create or edit a page is quite similar. If you get stuck however ask us. We charge from £90 inc to create a new page and there’s no limit to the amount of text or images you have in it. Work will be carried out by a degree-qualified and experienced designer.

Blog

A blog is an online diary. Twitter is a mini-blog and blogs are used to add fresh content which others might find value or interest in. You don’t have to use it as a blog though, it could easily be your news page or events page? It’s an area of your website which personifies your website so people can engage with the people behind it and engage in discussions or establish and maintain customer relationships. It’s also great for SEO! We can help out with this for as little as £45 inc. per month.

Site Photography Visits

Apart from requiring the equipment and the skills, taking photographs takes time especialy when you include the time and cost of travel each way and the time spent on site. If we did that too often we’d need to put our prices up which would make us less affordable so we try to avoid it where possible. Most people have a digital camera and can supply photos to us but if you have specialist or high-quality needs, we’re pretty flexible and will try to help out when we can but special trips might cost more. Stock photography is another option you might consider? you can buy great professional photos for less than £5 each.

Copy Editing

We’ll take your digitally supplied text and check it. If you tag each section so we know where it belongs we’ll put it in the right place and use our copywriting experience where appropriate so that search engines will index your pages favourably. The more rich, original and relevant content that you can supply, the greater the chances of a good search engine rank but remember that search engine optimisation is an ongoing process so even if you rank well after a few weeks, you can’t just put your feet up and forget about things – it’s an ongoing process which requires a bit of effort from yourself. If you don;t have the time, we can do it for you or a small monthly fee (from £45 inc.)

Send Email Newsletters

All our packages come with the option to send newsletters to your customers. You can build up a list of email addresses to enter and if you have the skills necessary to create graphic-rich HTML pages, you can send them out for free. Of course, we’d rather do that for you but the choice is yours.

Accept Credit Cards with PayPal

The Premier hosting package costs a bit more because it has more features built in. If you don’t have a separate merchant agreement with a bank to accept credit cards, then you can still set-up the eCommerce software on your Premier website to begin taking payments with PayPal. All you will need is a PayPal account.

eCommerce Facility

The Premier package includes a secure server and a choice of ‘one-click’ shopping cart software which can be installed in very little time. It doesn’t have a pre-installed eCommerce system right out of the box so it will need setting up by somebody who has a reasonable level of I.T. skills. The one-click shopping or ‘eCommerce’ software available to install several payment gateways including PayPal. The software is compatible with other payment gateways but anything other than the likes of PayPal or WordPay will require a separate merchant agreement with a bank which can cost upwards of £25 per month even if you already take credit cards in-store. Don’t blame us – blame the banks.

On Page SEO

All our websites are inherently Google friendly but ongoing optimisation requires an ongoing budget (£45 will buy an hour each month) so we can provide the specialist work required. We don’t do Pay-per-Click but if you want instant results and have enough money, we can recommend a specialist. We specialise in organic optimisation which we find are a lot more cost-effective. Google looks at well over 100 different things every time it ranks your website and whilst everything Google do is a big secret, a whole industry has evolved called SEO and while much of it is based on educated guesswork, we simply follow the recommended Google Webmaster Guidelines so our websites will never get banned. However, getting your website indexed by Google is the easy bit. Many of the factors which influence your website rank are based around quality and regular rich content.


Our Mission Statement

We keep overheads low so we can keep our charges low. We’re like a low-budget airline: We use the same aircraft and can take you to all the same places but if you require newspapers, drinks or in-flight movies, that’s perfectly fine but it will cost a little extra. No nonsense and no hidden extras.

Web Design Links

Our website packages come with design & hosting already included and set up ready to roll but if you want to take care of things yourself, we recommend these guys…
