Keeping your costs down: Factors that Affect Website Design Prices and Rates
Copy typing: Having to transcribe large tracts of text from paper documents takes time. You should always try to provide your copy in electronic format. The actual format is not particularly important as long as it is saved in a format such as word or text or Email.
Changing your mind: Before starting work we will produce an agreed scope of work and develop your website or part of your website as agreed. It important that you carefully specify your website before work commences. Be sure to plan your website and know what you want as changes can be expensive and will usually result in additional costs of some sort.
Photography Digital Images and Product Images
Your website will probably require digital imagery. We can provide licensed stock photography from £1.00 per image, use your own images or provide a professional photographer for products or images (guide price £400 per half day)
Content for your site includes all the "copy", which is the text content and information you want to provide. You know your business better than we do so are probably best placed to provide the site copy content. If you are not comfortable with doing this we can provide this as an additional service. You may also need information on the products and services you want to promote through your website.
Simple Explanation Of SEO A high ranking on the search engines is the best advertising bargain imaginable.
SEO or Search Engine Optimization is about getting your web page noticed and drawing traffic to your site. You can have the best looking web site in the world but without SEO no one will know you are there. Not having SEO on your website is like paying for lots of shiny brochures then leaving them in the office.
SEO is also the process of improving web pages so they rank higher in search engines for your targeted keywords and is your ranking for the organic results not paid results. You can't purchase organic rankings, however, we can optimise your site to increase your rankings organically and help it get found on the search engines by researching your keywords and adjusting your text, content and copy so that you have the best possible chance of being found by the search engines.
If you wish to attract business through your website Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is extremely important.

How do you improve your ranks on the search engines?
Key Words are what gets you found when people are searching for you using a search engine like Google or Yahoo. If someone is searching for cook books the words "cook books" must appear within the text before a website will be listed for this search. The skill is defining what specific search terms people use to find the products or services you offer.
Search Engine Submission is the process of letting the search engines know that your site (URL) exists for inclusion in directory and search engine indices.
Visitor statistics let you see how many people are visiting your site where they came from, how long they stayed, what pages they visited and what search words they used to find you.
