Web site creation and e-marketing
AND DETAILS OF OUR SERVICES AVAILABLE
We can help any business or individual get or overhaul their exiting online presence. More and more people are now using the internet to search out information before they buy. Its now 'expected' that any serious business is online, and we can help provide you with a stylish site that will put you up with the best.
If you are still not sure what you need, you can probably start of with a minimum three page site (e.g. introduction page, contact page, background/ services page) and easily develop or extend it later. We always try to get to know the company and design a site that reflects their business, colour scheme and ethos. You can upgrade everything later anyway when you see what works for you.
We strongly recommend you have your own 'domain name' (generally make name of the domain the same as your company to use on the website and your e-mail address), and we will find help you find a suitable name and guide you through the process (- we believe it is in your own long term interests for you to own your domain name yourself - the cost of this is in the region of £10 per year)
We also understand that without marketing no site will 'succeed' and we fully understand the techniques for marketing your site, and will help you there too.
We know there may be a temptation to do it yourself, however we believe that the time you will waste in understanding systems and creating a site will be more than the cost of letting us produce something truly professional on your behalf. We guide you through the whole process, and if you are local we probably understand your needs much better than a 'design inspired' expensive web creation company or an amateur doing it from his bedroom. We will not try to sell you something which will be over sophisticated than is appropriate for your industry!
It will cost you nothing anyway for a chat or a demonstration. Choose the elements below to suit your requirements and budget. In addition if in the unlikely event that you are not satisfied we will give you all your money back

We can do all the 'copy' and scan the photos, however the more you can provide as text 'copy' and 'photos' in a suitable format the less it will cost you.
Preparation of basic three page web page
including design and content, providing Meta
tags (hidden tags to help search engines find
you), advice on domain names, a visitor counter, at
least one 'up our sleeves trick', clickable (encoded) e-mail links back to
you, uploading the site to the server and initial paid promotion to
Further services £50 per extra page or extra service (e.g. response or contact forms, guest books, weblogs, additional counters, additional 'up our sleeve tricks', ability to download files from your site, search site facility, search internet facility, + an *e-mail letterhead to match your site (*£100).

Extra charges will apply if you require us to scan a large number of photos or us to write most of the 'copy'. Normally we would load the site to the webspace provided by your existing Internet service provider, and we would temporarily require access to your password to do this. If you don't have an account we can help you set one up and also advise if Broadband would be beneficial to you. (Please note that we may not be able to load a site to an AOL account due to their problematic small webspace size and upload restrictions)
Amendments later to update the site would be on the basis of £40.00 per hour (min half hour) - again a quotation would normally be provided in advance. If you have feel you are competent and have suitable software (e.g. M/S Front Page) and require this, we can also set up systems on your own computers + provide training to allow you to update the site yourself. We can also include sections of the site (e.g. news info or price info) that can be updated remotely by yourself as simply as writing an e-mail
Please contact us if you require specialist shopping cart, 'Flash' intros or database based sites as these would very much depend on what was required.
