Costs

Although every project is unique, most of what we're asked for falls within four categories:

Portfolio
... from  £129

Single page brochure (static) website provides a basic introduction stating who you are, what you do & how to contact you. The least complex to produce but not editable without knowledge of coding, unsuitable if you need frequent changes.
Brochure Site
... from  £169

A brochure (static) website serves as the online advertisement for your business. They are less complex to produce but are not editable without knowledge of coding, so would be recommended for businesses where content changes infrequently. This website is a brochure build.
Owner-Editable

Web contents management system (dynamic) websites have complex background mechanisms that allow owners to edit much of their contents in plain English, so would be recommended for sites that change frequently or need sophisticated interactive features.
Online Shop

Shopping cart sites (eCommerce) need complex mechanisms to allow owners to securely manage products, prices, promotions, sales, etc. All without the fees associated with auction sites. We build ranges & create test items then show you how to add & manage more.
