Frequently asked questions

How Long Does it Take to Build a Website?2021-05-06T15:12:46+00:00

While it’s possible to build a simple website in just a few hours, a professionally designed website takes much longer. It all depends on the size of your website of course. Factor 2-3 weeks for research/ideation, then another 4-6 weeks for design, development can take 2-4 weeks and then a further 2 weeks for adjustments. Ideally, you’ll have already started to write the content otherwise the time to completion can take even longer.

The first stage of web design is the most important. Getting the research and ideation down correctly will save going back and fixing things you wish you’d thought about before. What we’re talking about here is what the website does and how you want users to flow across it, visual ID & SEO optimised content. From there, it’s all about putting those ideas into a wireframe design. Wireframes are a great way of expressing design without lots of coding. Because the design is dialled in at the start, the development should flow like a fine wine. After that, it’s about the fineness.

So if you’re looking to build a website fast, it’s possible to condense these processes. But failure to stick to the guides will only lead to heartache later on.

How Much Does Website Design Cost?2021-05-06T15:13:55+00:00

If you look to build a website yourself on a CMS like WordPress, you’d be looking at a starting cost of around £300-500. To add to your website cost you have hosting, that’s another £120, to begin with. To hire a developer a website price would start at £1,500 for a site with around 8 pages. You may be asking why does website creation cost so much more? A professional designer brings with them experience.

An experienced website designer will consider site speed and accessibility. Then there’s great navigation, UX and making the whole thing have an endpoint i.e. converting visitors into customers. And let’s not forget Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). A well-optimised site drives traffic. A poorly thought out SEO strategy means you’ll be fighting an uphill battle from the start. So when you think about it, the cost of getting a website designed is pretty good value.

So how much is a website in the UK? We think a fair starting price is £1,500 with hosting on top. That goes up to £2,500 for a slightly larger website of 16 pages. For something much bigger, we think around £4,000 is about right. For a fully developed corporate website, the sky is the limit. It all just depends on what you want to do and how unique you want your new website to be.
