Off the Shelf Websites
Well there is an alternative that is, almost, as good. A professionally designed and built website based on a template.
It doesn’t have to look the same as everyone else’s. Once your branding colours, text and images have been added you’ll find it truly looks different. It will look like yours.
We’ve partnered with the Design Space and use their templates. Why? Well because they are gorgeous, designed for conversion and easy to use.
How does it work?
There are two options:
If you want to Do It Yourself
You will need to purchase
- Your domain name
- Website hosting (we use and recommend Siteground if you’re using a Divi template)
- Divi, Kadence, Elementor or ProPhoto depending on which you’d prefer (we’re fans of Divi) and
- The template from Design Space
The Design Space will then send you full instructions to build your website on their template. They have a great helpdesk if you get stuck.
If you’d like us to do it for you
If you’d like us to do it you just need to purchase the domain name and then book below, letting us know which of The Design Space templates you wish to use (Note we only build in Divi so please choose a Divi template). You don’t need to buy the template or Divi (we’ll do that – it is included in our price).
What does it cost?
If you choose to Do It Yourself the upfront cost (template and Divi) is approx £350 plus you will need hosting (Siteground hosting is currently £3/month for the first year increasing to £12/month – prices exclude VAT). You’ll also need to buy your website domain.
If you’d like us to do it then we charge £1,000 to set it up for you (you just need to buy the domain) then £25/month for our website maintenance package (this includes your SSL certificate, hosting, all tech updates, backups and restore from backup if needed).
How It Works
We build the website over a week. You need to provide us with all information by the close of business on the Friday of the preceding week (don’t worry we’ll let you know what you need to send us and give you some guidance on the content).
On the Monday we’ll set everything up, “right size” images, load the template on your domain, together with the images, your fonts and your colour palette and have a call with you to go through everything.
On the Wednesday we’ll start adding your content to the relevent pages and we’ll aim to finish by Friday lunchtime so we can launch on the Friday afternoon and show you how to make edits.
You’ll therefore need to be available on the Monday and Friday of that week.
At this stage we ask you to book your week. There is the opportunity to reschedule (once) but please be realistic about when you will have the content ready and book for a date after then. We will only be able to work to the extent we have the text and images from you.
