Deciding you want a website is only the first decision you have to make. They can achieve hundreds of different things, can look like anything you can imagine with our custom coding and can accommodate the most modest to the most extravagant budgets.
Our designers and coders are happy to guide you in the right direction, but it is vital that we ultimately create something which is in line with your vision. In this blog, we will discuss a few factors which you have to consider before we build your site.

What Do You Want to Achieve?
Websites are an incredibly versatile tool. There are very few businesses, if any, who have nothing to gain from having some form of presence online. However, having us build a website is not enough; you need to tell us what you want it to do.
For example, many people have a product to sell and want to have a place to sell their product. These e-commerce sites facilitate these transactions. Not only will we present your product in an accurate and attractive way, but we will provide a safe environment for the exchange of money allowing customers to shop in confidence.
Alternatively, you may want to increase the exposure of your business. In this regard, we can build a website which incorporates SEO (search engine optimisation). This way, we can force your business to rise up the ranks of search engines. This will introduce your product or service to an entirely new market of customers.
You may even want a booking service. If you run a restaurant, for example, it is important to have a tool which allows customers to schedule a time to visit you. This is incredibly efficient and reduces the amount of time your employees spend on the phone.
These are just three of the countless website styles which we can create to accommodate your needs. If you have something else in mind, don’t hesitate to give us a call and answer some questions.
How Do You Want It to Look?
It is important to keep in mind that as talented as our designers are, the website is ultimately yours. We can have as much or as little control over how it looks as you like, but it is important to us that we deliver a final result that you love.
When you come in to discuss your brief, it helps us if you have some idea of the look you want to achieve. We can offer guidance, criticism, and answer questions, but having a solid foundation before the design process begins is vital.
Before you come in to talk to our designers, have a look at some of your competitors. Naturally, you don’t want to copy them exactly, but you can take inspiration.
One option is to prepare a few websites for us to look at before coming in. These can be within your industry or not, either way, our talented creatives can take our all of the elements which work.
Once we have an idea of what you like and want, our design team can then incorporate your brand into the brief. We will make sure the site projects your brand accurately and reflects the quality of service any customer will receive when dealing with your company.
How Much Do You Want to Spend?
You can use two models when determining what you want us to build for you:
- Tell us what you want, and we will tell you what it costs.
- Tell us your budget, and we will work out what we can achieve.
For example, many people have an idea of what they want their new website to do for their business and the cost of this is secondary.
Many people will approach us saying they are doing well but are struggling to increase their customer base. In other words, they want to access a new market.
To achieve this, SEO can be very effective. Clients will tell us that they have money to spend and that overall they want to gain new customers for their business. Despite the initial investment, the process will very quickly pay for itself.
Our marketing experts and designers will work with you to come up with a tailor-fit strategy in order to increase your profits in the most cost-effective manner possible.
However, not everyone has the budget to facilitate this. Luckily, using our experience and knowledge, we can work with you to make the most of the budget you do have. It may be the case that you only have a few hundred pounds and want to know what we can do with it.
Our marketing team and designers will work with you to make the most of your cash. We aren’t in the business of doing the least work possible; we rely on our reputation and are committed to delivering absolute customer satisfaction.
It doesn’t cost a tremendous amount of money to get an effective website, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
