How much input is needed from my end?
What if I want to update my website after it’s gone live?
At the end of every website project, and as a part of the service, I would be spending 2 hours with you on Skype for 2 days and take you though the working of the content management system (CMS). This will help you manage the content within your site. Empowering my clients with this option both allows them to retain a feeling of control and ownership whilst also reducing their ongoing cost. If however your edits are beyond your technical expertise then I would gladly quote a rate for the alterations.
Why doesn’t my website look the same in every browser?
You shouldn’t be facing a problem if you are viewing you website in the latest version of Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox or IE as they render your website the same way. The older versions lack this capability and then there may be differences in how your website is displayed in various browsers.
Will my website be on the page one of Google?
I completely understand that everyone wants to be on page one of google for their chosen keywords, however if there are 100 competitors all wanting to rank high then there are going to be 90 of them left disappointed. I won’t mislead you this way by saying that I can get your website ranked high. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a very specialist market and getting on to page one or even position one can cost $ 100′s if not $1,000′s (yes thousands) and can take a team of 20+ a number of weeks to get you there, and is also a never-ending process. I do understand SEO, but I do not promise results that I cannot guarantee.

Yes there are companies that charge less for a website, but you always get what you pay for.
