How we work with you

Working together is important to ensure we give you the best service and you get exactly what you need.

Responsive Website Design

We work with you to take your initial thoughts, layout drawings, colour suggestions, logo, images, scribblings on a napkin etc. and turn them into some outline designs for your review, selection and approval before we move on to development.

Website Development

During this phase we will build the pages, integrate with social media & news feeds and setup any additional features like online shopping or membership subscriptions. For this stage we would need your content for the pages so we will work with you to make sure you know when we need it so there are no delays to the design phase.


This stage is vital and will include us doing various tests from both a website user and development point of view across desktop & mobile to make sure everything works as planned. We will then allow you to have access to the site to test functionality, check text and images etc. to make sure you are happy with the way it looks and works.

Search Engine Optimisation

As e build the site we ensure that each page is setup correctly with the relevant meta data, titles, alt tags on images etc. so when we reach this final stage there should be no surprises. Once you have done your testing agreed the site is ready to go live we will run an SEO report and provide you a copy which will show that all the public pages on the site have been built with the correct information that search engines like google & bing expect to see in order to rank the site. If the report highlights anything that needs addressing we will of course correct it before live.

Go live & support

Once you are happy with everything we push the preverbal big red button to open the site to the public. We will be available to support you and answer any questions or make minor changes to the site. We can even provide training to you and your staff on features like newsletter generation, adding of blog posts, updating your store or any other aspect of your site.


First years running cost included in the Price

As well as the design & development we include various key things that other developers often add on as extras or you might find you need to arrange yourself. These include Domain Name Registration (, .net or .com), Website Hosting and an SSL secure certificate. We will also provide a renewal guide price for these items which will allow you to plan for the cost next year.
