We’ll need text, pictures and some technical details.
If you own your own domain, we’ll need the provider name, username and password to allow us to make changes when needed. If you’re doing ECommerce, we’ll need your merchant codes. We’ll contact you directly for these items when they are needed, so they don’t form part of the checklist directly.
Your site will be fully expandable and upgradeable in the future. However its quicker to add extras to your site during the build process, than at a later date. Therefore we offer a discount on additional items when ordered alongside your site build.
Have your site configured to sell online for only £200 (usually £250). This option can be hidden and revealed later so you can build your shop in the background.
ECommerce can be as simple or as complex as you want. Base ECommerce means clients order and have their delivery sent directly to them. If you want clients to be able to order items and send them to different addresses, or split them up, or send them out white label, add this service for only £120 (usually £150).

Your website is expandable already; you will be able to add pages, menus, and links. To create truly dynamic content, add our Dynamic Content module for only £150 (usually £190) to enable your site to pull content from other pages and posts; i.e. every time you add a Portfolio item, it will appear on all pages that reference your Portfolio. Repeat this for Products, Events, or any dynamically changing event you can think of!

Frequently Asked Questions
Just how expandable is my site?
Your site will be built round one or other of the popular Content Management Systems, dependent on the add-ons you’ve chosen. They are all remarkably similar and easy to use; log into the site, edit pages, add links between pages, and add important pages to menus. You’ll receive training on this. Dependent on the package used, you may be able to expand further with timed/dated posts, galleries, etc quite easily. It depends on your level of technical skill. We either offer monthly updates free to your site (add/edit pages, menus, links) or allow you to perform the work yourself and train you to do so. Once you take over the site and start managing it yourself, we obviously can’t be held responsible for errors made. It really comes down to whether you anticipate monthly (or longer) changes, or far more regular changes. As far as adding modules/functions later goes, its completely possible to add anything to a site at a later date. However decisions made at the beginning of the build, may impact later. For example, if you want a very fluid, photography-based site with animations, parallax and fade-ins, and then later on you decide you want it to display a detailed calendar of events, this may not be possible within the first style, so you’d need to create a seperate system rather than building it into the first. This is why its always better to try and anticipate your next 3 steps before building a site.
Will I get to the first page of Google?
Difficult question, to which the answer is Yes – for your company name, AND for the services you provide uniquely. You can’t force a page to the top of Google – Google decides, Google set the rules, and if you are providing relevant, current and regularly updated content on the services you provide (rather than just saying Cheap T-Shirt Printing over and over again) you will get there. Our sites are white-hat, employ no trickery and are eminently searchable. Our Dynamic Content system will allow you to create more content and have it be more visible to your users. Why not read our infopost about Search Engine Optimisation?
What can I edit?
Your page content, pictures on your site, links between pages, and what is on your menus. You do not get access to the back end or FTP-based code as this is our intellectual property; you have access to your site through a control panel.
Are there any hidden charges?
Not for the first year. Your site includes your hosting, domain name, setup, training and monthly edits. Thereafter your hosting will rebill at £60 annually, your domain dependent on the type, additional training and support can be provided as part of your hosting or by-the-minute, and further edits are charged by-the-minute. Its completely possible to manage your site yourself dependent on what add-ons you have, but you must host with us as a lot of the features we provide are embedded securely in our hosting system and not transferable.
