Can't I build a website for free?

Yes, you can. But free website builders make their money through placing ads on your site. That may work fine for you, but it doesn’t look very professional for a business and you are very limited in the functionality you are able to offer users.

We have the experience and know-how of the ‘grammer’ of how websites are designed and structured, the correct use of text, images and information archecture. Of course, you could learn all that but wouldn’t you be better concentrating on building your business?

What happens if I want to add some features to the website while you’re building it?

Whilst we like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the timeframes and budgets we have allowed.

If this new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives then we may suggest to schedule it for a second update of the website once it has been launched. This will require a new proposal.
