Can I build my own section:

Before you self build ask yourself these questions.

For clarification: The term self build includes templates for WordPress or any other platform/ supplier where you create your own site.

Do I know my hosting requirements? How do I choose an appropriate host?

Do I have the technical/ design skills to make my site look good?

Do I have the time to learn about websites?

How do I make sure it’s responsive across a range of devices

Can I make my branding come across strongly enough?

How much do I know about SEO? Do I have time to learn?

Is it cost effective in the long term? Can I extend it as my business grows?

I

Do I know enough about site security? What happens if it gets hacked? Will I have back ups? How will I know if it goes down?

Do I have images in the right sizes/ formats/ resolution?

Will I give visitors a good experience? Can I ensure my site will look good across a range of devices? Is it fast enough?

Can you see it through? Most developers are extremely wary about taking on sites created by other people and it is often more cost effective to start from scratch than try and unravel a badly put together site.

How does it work?

You pick a template design or choose a series of blocks

We build it

That’s it!

Template designs:

Have a good look at our professionally designed sites and choose a template that you think would suit your business. Don’t forget to look at it on a desktop/ iPad and mobile device to see how it behaves on each. It is also important to think about how it will work with your content.

Remember that we can easily remove any sections you don’t need and WordPress’s huge library of plugins means we can add any functionality you require now or in the future.

Things to bear in mind:

Will it work with your colour scheme/ branding?

Struggling with branding? We also offer a design package and can help with logos, colour palettes etc.

Do you have enough images to support it?

Don’t have enough good quality images? We have a very cost effective image library. Whilst it’s always better to have your own images this is a great way to get you started.

Do you have enough information for each of the sections?

We can remove sections easily included in the cost of your site but it’s often better to remove two as sites will generally be designed to provide contrast between sections. I.e. full width image, white, full width colour section, white.

Two images together would generally look untidy while two white sections would not give enough definition to separate sections.
