WEBSITES, ECOMMERCE, SEO AND HOSTING
Good websites need to offer a clear layout, ease of finding information and good design, colours layout and typography.
Our basic five page website starts at £295 and you will be in charge of the design, content and layout throughout the development process.
We use either the Joomla or Wordpress content management systems which means you will be able to keep the website up to date with changes or new content whenever you need without contacting a website developer. You will also get the training you need to get you up and running.
Our basic website would be ideal for a pub, cafe, restaurant or small business but sometimes you will need more funtionality like an ecommerce shop to sell your products or a portfolio to show your photography.
We are happy to tailor a quote to your specifications and you will pay no more than the original quote so your costs do not spiral out of control.
