Budget web design

Why we offer starter website packages

For charities, businesses, creatives and individuals

While we strongly advocate for the unique advantages of custom website design tailored to your specific needs and brand identity, we understand that the current economic climate poses certain challenges. We recognise that not all businesses or individuals have the luxury of an abundant budget, extensive time, or dedicated resources required for a fully bespoke design.

Whether you opt for a custom design or a template solution, our goal is to empower you with options that align with your unique circumstances. Your online presence is a crucial aspect of your business strategy, and we're here to support you in making the choice that best suits your current situation and future aspirations.

To cater to the needs of those with more modest budgets, we have developed a small range of startup packages.

The pricing structure is simple and includes a Content Management System (CMS), site planning, and optional website hosting.

A streamlined, cost-effective solution

Full package website development

Our starter templates handle a significant portion of the intricate work required to establish your website. This streamlined process ensures a prompt and hassle-free setup, all at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional bespoke website design. By utilising our starter templates, you not only save time but also benefit from a cost-effective solution without compromising on quality or customisation.

Our dynamic starter templates are robust, exceptionally flexible, and easily tailored to align with your unique requirements. Each package is meticulously crafted to offer the flexibility needed for developing a professional website, all while fitting within the constraints of a smaller budget.

    Planning normally takes place via video calling apps such as 'Zoom', 'Teams' or 'Sykpe'. We are also very happy to plan your website over the phone and via email. Face-to-face meetings are not included.

  • Does the start-up default hosting package include email accounts?

    Our start-up package does not include email, it's website hosting only. If you require email accounts, we can support you find a third party hosting provider that also includes email. Third party hosting starts from around £60 a year.

  • Can we keep our website hosted with the current hosting company?

    Yes, if your current host meets the CMS requirements we can develop the website with your current host. If your website project requires more resources or a higher spec, a third party hosting provider can be recommended.

  • Does the package include a domain name?

    No, but we can support you to register a domain name via a third party provider. We can also help you point/direct your domain name to the new website.

  • How configurable is a starter website?

    Stylistically, almost everything can be changed to meet your visual requirements. For example, you can change the website's colours, the masthead image, font-face, font-size, font colour and logo. To a certain extent, you can also modify the page layouts. For example have sub-page side-bars (inc sub-menu) placed on the left or right, show/hide news and display 2, 3 or 4 homepages 'teasers'. The navigation can be presented as a standard single-level or multi-level 'drop-down-menu' and of course the website page structure/hierarchy will also be changed to reflect your needs.

    Additionally, you can extend the website further using 'add-on components' such as an 'events calendar', 'image galleries', 'content accordions' and 'donations/fundraising' tools.

  • Can we add more feature or make bespoke changes

    Yes, we have a number of affordable 'add-on' components and are more than happy to make additional bespoke changes (that go beyond the templates pre-determined constraints) to your site.

    Any bespoke changes, including development or planning will be charged at a standard rate of £50 per hour.

  • Can we use our own Logo?

    Yes, of course. Your logo will need to be saved with a png or jpg extension.

  • Do you add VAT?

    No, we are not VAT registered.

  • Can we manage the website ourselves

    Yes, you will be able to manage the website from a Content Manatement System (CMS). You have full control over the whole of your website (not just the primary content section) so we use a CMS that enables you to edit and manage almost every nook and cranny of your site. We will provide you with two hours of CMS training via Zoom and/or telephone.

  • What Content Management System (CMS) is used?

    Your website will be developed and managed using ProcessWire.

  • How many pages can we have?

    The CMS makes it very easy to add as as many pages as you require.

  • Can we 'mix and match' template features?

    Yes, we can combine different features and functions from various templates to form a completly new set of bespoke page layouts. Any bespoke changes, including development or planning will be charged at a standard rate of £50 per hour.

  • Do the packages include maintenance?

    Not by default, but if you wish to include maintenance, affordable packages are available. full details can be found here.
