Website design & build
Getting you online
In today’s ever changing world, being online is one of the most powerful tools your business can have. Forget opening and closing times, customers have access to you 24 hours a day. But the process of creating a new website needn’t be extensive, or expensive.
We can get you and your business online quickly and efficiently. We don’t regurgitate the same designs or templates, we listen to your business needs and create something your business needs and always within your budget.
Always built for you
Every small businesses needs and requirements differ, that’s why we like to start each project off with a quick chat. This makes sure we can tailor our design and website features to your business needs – not something templated. We don’t want to over complicate your website with features you’ll never need.
The below comes as standard with our website packages…
- A website that you can update easily yourself, if you want to
- A design that has been crafted specifically for your business needs – we never use (boring) templates
- Content that has been written or enhanced with google and SEO in mind
- Designs that work and adapt to mobile and tablet as standard
- A handbook on how to make changes and updates
- A brand new mailbox and email account or an easy transfer of your existing domain
Frequently asked questions
How much does a website cost?
Our website prices start at €600 for a basic site without any 3rd party plugins. For bigger sites, we’ll work on a bespoke quote for your needs.
Do I own my website?
Yes, the website is all yours, stored securely on our servers. Should you decide to move away from us, we charge a small fee to package things up and move them to your new provider.
Can I pay in stages?
We ask for a 50% deposit to get things underway. Then once you’re happy with everything we request the final 50% before setting your new website live.
Can I update my website?
Yes, sure! We build our websites within WordPress – a content management system – so you’re free to change text and add new images. All new websites are supplied with a handbook on how to make changes. Alternatively we offer packages that include monthly content updates.
What's the process?
Once we have your brief and requirements we usually supply one design of your homepage in a PDF format for you to have a look at. Once you’re happy with the design we move onto building the full website on a staging platform. We update you on progress and ask you to make a final check though. Once you’re happy with it – we set things live. It’s as straightforward as that!
How long does it all take?
Ordinarily we say around 4 weeks, but this does depend on a number of factors, including page numbers and complexity of the website. But let us know your deadline and we’ll do our very best to meet them.
Websites that can do A LOT
Some businesses need a simple website to tell customers what they do, others need to sell products online or take bookings and reservations. We have a plethora of plugins to create a website that works for your business needs, here are some of them:
Calendars, book now & reservations
For holiday rentals or restaurants it’s imperative to show potential clients your availability. With our accommodation / restaurant book now functionality, your customers can book directly with you and all monies head straight into your bank! Not via someone else’s.
Sell products online
List your businesses products on your website, not on someone elses, and keep 100% of the profits. We create e-commerce websites that are intuitive too, hiding products when they may be out of stock or highlighting your most popular products. We can ensure you appear higher on Google too so your customers will find you first.
Because who doesn’t want customers from different nationalities?! We can translate your entire website into various languages to reach customers far and wide, including: French, English, German, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Finnish, Polish, Portuguese and even Chinese.
Short-term wedding and event websites
Create an online presence for a specific event (your wedding, a fancy food or wine event etc). Collect all the relevant guest information you need – all in one simple place. What’s more, let us create branded and printed stationery to tie it all together.
Save money in the long run
3rd party companies can have a huge impact on profits for small businesses, with some companies charging up to 30% to sell your products for you.
As an example if you own a holiday home:
If you take 16 weeks of bookings a year @ €1,000 per week = that gives you €16,000 per year
If you pay 5% booking fees each time on your €16,000 turnover = that leaves you with €15,200 and €800 per year slipping out of your grasp!
With a book now functionality, that hard-earned cash goes straight into your back pocket.
