Trace, where do I get web hosting from?
How do you know what I want?
How many pages do I need?
How long will it take to get my website?
Do you write the content for me?
Do I need SSL?
And just WHAT the chuff is SEO?
Grab a cuppa and a biccie, and I shall explain what’s what, how it all works, and what your investment is…
Before we start a-rockin’ and a-rollin’ we need a good chinwag! Call me, if you’re on WhatsApp, let’s chat or video call, drop me an email, or use the contact button at the bottom of the page. Please don’t send a carrier pigeon, I have a ruthless assassin cat!
The number of pages, colour palette, website specification, and what you are looking for in the design are all covered in your in-depth website consultation. We’ll also discuss what’s happening with your content. Read the next bit!
I don’t write brand new website text content. However, I am great at tweaking the bare bones of your ideas, and have Eagle Eyes for typos! When planning your website, pull together all your content and branding so we are ready to go!
I generally like to work within a 4-8 week timescale, but delays can and do happen! Clients have changed their mind about content, had a total rethink about their brand, had a family emergency, a bereavement, and sometimes plain, simple work commitments can all impact the deadline.
Creating a new website can be stressful for a client, and I’m here to make the process all that bit smoother and hassle-free.
There are some seriously bad hats out there, believe me. WordPress has grown MASSIVELY as the go-to platform for building business websites, and unfortunately hacking attempts go with the territory.
Don’t worry too much though – your website will be secured. I use either the Wordfence or iThemes Security plugins. I’ve only ever had one client website hacked, and it was back online and clean within the same day, phew!
A VERY important thing. Web hosting. Must be UK-based for UK biz. Check out Tsohost Start-up package here. Host up to 3 sites, free domain name and free domain matching email accounts to use with Outlook and on your phone.
Use SUPER10 at checkout to get 10% discount. Of course, other web hosting providers are available! I’ve been with Tsohost for over 5 years now: their Tech Support is ACE!
A necessary evil, folks! Without decent SEO, your website can’t be found easily on Google. Have a nosey around Google Search Console so you can see what’s what.
A website needs to be Indexed and a Sitemap uploaded to GSC, plus “Fetching” your pages. If you hate all things techie, get some SEO quotes from local biz. Your shiny new website will have the SEO Yoast plugin installed, ready for you to optimise your pages. If you want me to sort out your SEO & GSC, it will be £150 on top of your website package.
Google penalise websites in rankings that don’t display secure browsing. Ensure your web hosting provider supports LetsEncrypt and you secure your site for FREE!
If your hosting does not support it, expect to pay through the nose for an SSL Certificate from them, AND jump through HOOPS OF CHUFFIN FIRE getting it installed!!
Please check out this comprehensive list of Web Hosting providers who support LetsEncrypt SSL installation.
All my websites come with a 30 Day Handover Guarantee. That means I will fix any broken links, minor typos that have slipped the net, and other small edits.
If you’re not sure how to update your Divi website, I will also show you how to maintain your new site, and make simple changes.
Like the sound of all this, but still not sure if I’m your woman?
