What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimisation is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get.
There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key.
Do you write the content for my site?
We can help you with this for sure. If you don’t feel comfortable putting together your own content let us know and we can build this into your project.
Can you design my logo?
We sure can, we have a designer in our team that can help with all your design and branding needs.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.co.uk
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is basically where your website lives to keep it viewable on the World Wide Web. Every website in the world needs hosting to keep it online. It’s basically a computer housed in a data centre that runs your website and email.
What is your hourly rate?
When quoting work we regularly quote on a fixed price basis, that just works better for both parties then we all know where we stand.
However, in some cases we use hourly billing where tasks are small or the scope is not fully known to give our clients more flexibility to make adjustments and changes as they go.
Our standard hourly rate is £80 plus vat
For clients on one of our plans our rate is £40 plus vat. We also offer discounts for purchasing time blocks.
Note that this requires a minimum hourly purchase of 5 hours (don’t worry, you have 12 months to use any unused time!).
