Many people want to build a website but don't know where to start. You may want a website for business use to promote your business online and sell your products, or you may want a website or blog for personal use to have a presence on the internet. We can certainly help you get started! Many of our customers prefer to use a content management system. A content management system is an accessible website builder. No HTML knowledge is required. As long as you know how to use the internet, you'll be able to build and maintain your website. All the heavy lifting is done for you automatically. Our preferred content management systems are Wordpress and Drupal, and we can offer setup and training for both systems. We can offer you the chance to try both content management systems to see which one you like the best. We can also help you to set your emails up to work with your new website.
Don't want to use a content management system? No problem. Contact us if you have specific requirements for your website and we'll be more than happy to discuss putting a system in place to fulfill your needs.
How much does it cost to get started?
We offer the following packages to fit every budget.
For just £29.99, we can install either Wordpress or Drupal for you configured for accessibility. This package is suitable for those people who have prior knowledge of website development, and want to get up and running with a content management system that's already configured for accessibility. Although we'll be on hand to answer questions, it is assumed that you will have enough knowledge to get started and work the system out for yourself. You can always book extra training if you need to at £15 per half an hour.
For £74.99, we can install your content management system of choice, and provide 1 and a half hours of training to help you get to know the system and answer any questions you may have. We will be happy to place images on to your website to help you get started. We will also supply a text guide in your preferred format with hints and tips on getting started.
For £149.99, we can install your content management system of choice, and provide 5 hours of training to help you get started. This time could be used to upload content to your website, help you get up and running using the system, and provide assistance with placing pictures on to your website. We will also provide a text guide in your preferred format to help you get started.
This package is suitable for those people who are transitioning from 1 website platform to another, or who need a lot of help in getting started and have a specific project in mind. Maybe you have a website that is years out of date but don't want to lose your content or start from scratch. Maybe you want to build a shopping cart system but don't know where to start. For £299.99, we can help you install your content management system of choice, import your existing content, and provide 8 hours of assistance and training and getting started. We can also assist you in uploading images to your website. Text guides will also be provided in your preferred format to insure you can maintain your website.
Can I contact you if I have a specific project in mind that doesn't fit the above packages?
Yes, certainly. Some of our customers would rather not use a content management system. Please don't hesitate to contact us with your project and we'll do our best to help.
Will I be able to upload images independently?
Yes, though we would recommend having someone sighted on hand to double check the pictures look okay and are in the correct place. If you have no sighted help on hand, please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll be more than happy to double check the layout for you.
What document formats will my website support for uploads?
Many people write their website content in Microsoft Word and paste it on to the website. Drupal or Wordpress then converts the content in to web pages for your website. You can also write your pages in HTML or markdown formats.
Do you offer on-going maintenance packages?
Yes. We offer the following packages:
Our basic package.
For £99 a year, we will be more than happy to keep your website up-to-date insuring it has the latest security patches. We will also be more than happy to occasionally upload content that requires visual input, for placing images, posting product reviews, etc.
Our advanced package:
If you require us to keep your website up-to-date regularly with new content and manage your website for you, then this package is for you. For £199.99 a year, we can insure your website is current and take the hassle out of managing your website by uploading and managing your content.
Can I pay for packages on a monthly basis?
Yes. Please contact us for more information; we can certainly come to an agreement.
Do you offer web hosting as part of the above packages?
Many of our customers prefer to purchase their own web hosting packages before starting on building their website. We work with a number of suppliers to get your website online. We can offer web hosting packages from as little as £2 a month. Please don't hesitate to contact us for more information. No matter what you have in mind for your project, we are confident we can provide a solution for you!
