Websites – charged on an individual basis

Charges commence at around £850 and increase from there dependent on individual requirements. This base set-up fee includes initial briefing, some design and development time in order to agree the structure of the site. Each website is charged on an individual basis based on the content.

An average responsive/CMS brochure site costs from £1350 – £2,500. Directory, e-commerce or specialist sites requiring users log-in, etc can cost substantially more dependent on several factors including number of products on the site or amount of custom coding required.

All supportive work is charged as extra, see below.*
An accurate quotation can be provided further to a complete brief.

Website charges include:-

  • Initial briefing, design work and development of the structure
  • A reasonable amount of changes and corrections
  • Help setting up web hosting accounts and emails if required.
  • Help with Google keywords, tracking code, sitemap submission to Google Indexing and submission to other search engines.
  • Assumed usage of supplied high quality images and final proofed text, both supplied digitally.
  • Coded to current web standards (but we obviously cannot ensure that the site retains this standard if it is maintained elsewhere)

Charges DO NOT include any supportive work, these will be charged as extra. Work such as:-

  • Creation of any company branding (ie logos)
  • Writing / editing finished copy or ‘starter’ copy (text which is written as a general guideline to intended textual content but requires further improvement for use as final copy).
  • Special Pages such as forms.
  • Adding an e-commerce facility
  • Interactive on-page image enlargement.
  • Any images (or animations) which may need to be created, sourced, or manipulated in Adobe Photoshop (or other specialist software). Most images take around .25hr (£16.25) to be retouched, sharpened, brightened, etc. Montaged images / web animations take longer, and the cost is dependent on various factors including time required, how many images are used, and the final size.
  • Photography or sourcing Stock Library images.
  • Scanning photographs or images
