One of my favourite shops in the world is Poundland. I love the simplicity of everything (well, most things) being £1.
It’s even better when you find a right bargain for just £1! The few times I have gone to Poundland with my Nana, she will pick up an item and say “How much is this?” or “How much are these biscuits?” and even “ These wipes say they’re £1, is that right?”. After the first question, I stopped replying.
Sometimes we forget that not everything is given. My Nana genuinely didn’t know everything (well, most things) were £1. Just because you know something, not everyone around you does. That may seem silly to say, however, we often forget that not everyone knows the same things we do.
As website designers and creators, we get asked the same questions by clients. We often forget business owners are not clued up on website procedures and jargon. This blog will simply provide answers to the few questions we get asked by most clients.
Don’t worry, we won’t blank you if you ask more than once, unlike my Nana. We can always guide you through every step of the way.
Now, your website questions and answers:
How much does a website cost?
It depends. I know that’s probably not the answer you were looking for.
Websites can range from £0 to thousands. Wix allows you to create a website for free, however, you cannot attach your own domain to the site. Therefore you will be given a Wix URL, which makes your brand look unprofessional.
The price of your site is dependant on the functionality you want for your site. Depending on your business, you will want your website to perform differently. For example, if you are an e-commerce company, you may want your site to feature a shop to sell your products.
To give a basic estimate, we have devised website packages. These are tailored to your area of business. These packages will provide various functions which will be beneficial for your site to contain.
So instead of asking “how much is a website?”, ask “are you free for a conversation?”.
We can get an idea of what you’re looking for, what functions you will need and how much you are looking at for your new and ideal website.
When I ‘purchase’ a website, what comes with the price?
Just like any service, there is a lot of work that is done behind the scenes for that product. Thankfully, with us, the work is included in the price. So the price quoted is the price you pay.
With your amazing end product, the price you pay includes the design of your site, the building of your site, responsiveness to mobile and desktop, on-site SEO, link to Google Search Console, training on how you can edit your site and access to apps you can use on your site.
All these processes help your site to rank higher on search engines, increase your brand’s credibility and reputation and grow your visibility.
Your website makes up a large portion of your marketing, it’s the final touchpoint for your customers to endeavour to and purchase your service or product.
Who hosts the website?
We create all of our stunning websites on Wix, the hosting is also done by Wix. The minute you click the final publish button, the site is being hosted by Wix.
Wix hosts your website on a global content delivery network or a collection of connected secure servers located around the world, in simple-ish terms.
The benefit of Wix having servers across the world is simple redirection if one server goes down. Meaning the likelihood of your website ever fully going down is extremely slim.
We are always at the other end of the phone if you have any more questions or queries about websites. We live and breathe
