Why is your web design service so inexpensive?
Webeadoodle is a small, niche company offering fuss-free websites to small businesses, organisations and individuals who just need something simple but good looking and easy to arrange. I do all work online.
Do I really need a website?
35% of small businesses think that their business is too small to warrant a website. But most consumers look for local businesses online and will only contact a company if they have looked at their website. If you don't have a website you are losing customers. Webadoodle allows you to have a website at a reasonable cost and with no fuss or technical knowledge.
I already have a website, it's just that it's out-of-date. Can you just take the text and images from there?
Yes. Just tell me the web address and any required changes. I'll design a fresh new website for you with a contemporary design that will work on mobiles, tablets, laptops and desktops.
I already have a website. Can I use my domain name for this new site?
Yes. You can use your existing domain name for your new website.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is just the name of your website. For example, the domain name for the BBC's website is bbc.co.uk. I can suggest a suitable domain name for you and set it up for you if required.
How do we go about deciding what goes on the website?
I will get in touch with you by phone, FaceTime, Zoom or email, as you prefer, to discuss your requirements. I can help you to decide what should be on your website. You don't need any technical knowledge. I'll talk to you in plain English. I will just ask you to tell us about your business. I may ask you to supply any photos, logo and any details to appear on the site e.g. price list or testimonials. I can write text for you if you wish. I will then design the website for you and send you a link.
What happens if I don't like the website you have designed for me?
I am confident that my designs are clean, contemporary, attractive and work well. I am going to make a bespoke design just for you. But if you don't like it, I am happy to make changes to the design. This website will represent your company and mine, I will work hard to ensure you are happy.
Will my website work on a mobile phone?
Yes, your website will be fully responsive. This means it will look great on a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. It's essential for websites to work on mobiles these days as around 80% of all website visits are made on mobiles!
How long until my website is ready?
When I send you the price quote I will also suggest a timetable for your agreement. Typically the whole process takes about three weeks. But if you are in a hurry, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate you. I have turned websites around in just a few days to meet a client's deadlines!
Are there any other costs involved in the design?
I offer fixed price packages which are transparent and include everything you need for your website design. There are no hidden charges and no VAT applicable. Once your website is designed it will need to be put on the internet so people can see it. This involves some modest ongoing costs.
Are there any ongoing costs?
Yes. Once your website is designed, it needs to be published on the internet so people can see it. This involves registering the domain name, paying for website hosting, maintenance and any updates to the content of your site. You can organise and pay for this yourself. Or, if it's easier for you, I can sort out everything out and run your website for you from £29/month.
When and how do I pay?
When you are happy with your website design I will issue you an invoice which can be paid by bank transfer. If you want me to host and run the website for you, I will invoice you monthly and this can be paid by direct debit .
What is the minimum time period for the maintenance packages?
You pay monthly. You can cancel at any time.
What if I don't have any images for my website?
Don't worry, I can find stock images for you. In most cases these will be free of charge. If I can't find appropriate free images for you, I'll recommend paid ones and you can decide if you want to use them.
What if I don't have a logo?
I can design a logo for you for only £100. If you don't want a logo, don't worry, I will just use the name of your business in a nice font so it looks professional.
I'm not very good at writing text. Can you help?
Yes, I will check all spelling and grammar. If required, I'll write the text for you to make it professional, user-friendly and "Google-friendly" (SEO). This is all included in the service.
Does Webadoodle offer any other services ?
In addition to your bespoke website, I can provide these business essentials.
Logo design £100
Email address based on your domain name £100/year or £10/month
Social media banner £50
CMS (database for online directories) from £400
I need something a bit different to your standard packages.
