Why is your web design service so inexpensive?
We are 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. We do all our 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I already have a website, it's just that it's out-of-date.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 us the web address and any required changes. We'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. We can suggest a suitable domain name for you and in almost all cases we can supply that as part of your package at no extra cost.
Do I have to pay up front?
You pay just £99 as an initial payment and you only pay the balance if, and when, you are happy with the finalised design.
How do we go about deciding what goes on the website?
We will get in touch with you by phone, Zoom or email, as you prefer, to discuss your requirements. We can help you to decide what should be on your website. You don't need any technical knowledge. We'll talk to you in plain English. We will just ask you to tell us about your business. We may ask you to supply us with any photos, logo and any details to appear on the site e.g. price list or testimonials. We can write text for you if you wish. We 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?
We are confident that our designs are clean, contemporary, attractive and work well. We are also going to make a bespoke design just for you. But if you don't like it, we are happy to make changes to the design. Remember you only pay £99 as an initial payment and you only pay the balance if, and when, you are happy.
What happens if I need to make a change to the website during the year?
We are happy to make changes at no extra cost. So if you change your phone number or offer a new service, please just email us and we'll adjust your website. We are here to help you grow your business.
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 online?
We will send you a link to your new website design within 7 working days in most cases - sometimes sooner. Please let us know if you'd like any changes. When you approve your design we will ask you to pay the balance and then your website will be published to the world!
Are there any other costs involved?
No, we offer fixed price packages which are transparent and include everything you need for your website (design, hosting, maintenance and domain name if required). If you choose the £299 package, for example, that is what you'll pay. There are no hidden charges and no VAT applicable.
When and how do I pay?
We ask you to pay £99 as an initial non-refundable payment when you place your order. You pay the balance only when you approve the design. We will issue you an invoice.You may pay by bank transfer or PayPal.
What happens after the 12 months is up?
We will email you a reminder before your renewal date. To ensure continuity of service please make payment before your renewal date. You may cancel at any time up to the renewal date. If we don't hear from you by the renewal date your website will simply lapse. For more details, please see our terms and conditions.
What is the minimum time period?
You only sign up for twelve months and there's no commitment to continue. Just let us know before the renewal date.
What if I don't have any images for my website?
Don't worry, we can find stock images for you. In most cases these will be free of charge. If we can't find appropriate free images for you, we'll recommend paid ones and you can decide if you want to use them.
What if I don't have a logo?
We can design a logo for you for only £100. If you don't want a logo, don't worry, we 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, we will check all spelling and grammar. If required, we'll write the text for you to make it professional, user-friendly and "Google-friendly" (SEO). This is all included in the service.
