The 3 Golden Rules for website success
We’ve been building websites for years and have learned there are 3 simple rules for success when building a new website. These rules work so well we’ve created our fixed price fully managed website plans around them.
1. Think big, start small, move fast.
Have your big idea, but focus on getting your new site launched as quickly as possible.
The first 5 pages of a 15 page website could be generating business while the rest are being made.
2. Content is King.
This old saying is as true today as ever. Stand out from your competition by spending as much time as you can on your message and think about what you want a visitor to your site to do.
It’s THE most important part of a website.
3. Keep it simple.
Think about the easiest and fastest way to have your new site working for you. Do you need to wait for a photographer or can stock images fil in for now?
Will your old content re-imaged buy you some time? Do you need the email opt-in Day One?
Strip out the complexity and focus on execution. Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction. We have plenty of time to add all the features you need.
Do you really need bespoke design for your website?
Bespoke design can be very expensive and take a great deal of time. We truly believe most businesses do not need a hand-designed website.
We also understand you don’t want your business looking like others so we offer a middle ground that produces a great-looking mobile website at a lower cost and much shorter timeline.
We build our plans around pre-designed templates to cut the build time from months to weeks. We really think they are the right solution for most requirements.
It goes without saying, this site is built using one.
We have over 900 pre-designed templates we choose from and modify this to perfectly match your business identity.
Our plans cannot match every requirement, so if you do need design work or something more involved, please take a look at Projects.
Extremely professional & competent. Delivered at the estimated budget and great project automation – accept quote, begin work, complete, pay. Highly recommended.
- Reduced development time
- Professionally designed templates
- Project assistance
- Fully managed for a year
- Staging site
- Pay monthly or upfront
Because we don’t need to worry about the basic design elements, we can quickly start modifying a template to fit your requirements.
The quicker we can start building and get a page back to you to review the faster the site can launch.
What used to take weeks of development can be done in days.
Everything can be changed, resized, recoloured, moved and adjusted to suit your business brand.
Take a look at our template gallery.
Standard Site Plans include project management support to help you deliver content and images, with regular status updates.
Standard Website Plans come with Site Management included and Basic Website Plans with Site Essentials.
This allows you to focus on getting the site created and launched and adding to it in the coming months as it evolves and you understand more what you need the site to do for your business. We also add additional time to your plan during the first year as more changes may well be needed as you make better use of your new site.
It is password-protected to keep your brand new site under wraps until you are ready to reveal it.
Both options get you a new website and support, maintenance and hosting for 12 months.
Then, simply select a management plan for Year 2.
We’ve built our project delivery approach based around these rules, too. Launching your new site as soon as possible so it can start working for your business is our key objective.
Our Website Plans
We’ve created our plans to give established and growing businesses a fresh new site, fully managed and hosted with development time included each month for ongoing changes for a fixed monthly price for 12 months.
There are no hidden extras – the price you see is what you will pay but if you want additional pages or features then we can add some time to cover the additional development.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a minimum contract term?
What is a page and a page layout?
- A page holds your content and is served by a different URL
- A layout is simply a unique page design.
Most websites need some different page designs to effectively show the content.
For example, if a simple website had a homepage, a contact page and blog page containing blog posts, it would likely need 4 page layouts to be built.
Wikipedia is a good example – one page layout used across nearly 6m pages.
Can I increase the number of page layouts?
Additional layouts can be added for £100 per layout.
Can I increase the amount of pages?
Additional time needs to be allocated for content upload, QA and ongoing support
Additional pages are £20 each and will be charged as a one-off cost prior to website launch.
Are paid plugins included?
Premium plugins often include features not available within the free version.
Premium Plugins are included in our Standard Website Plan without additional cost.
What is "content"?
Content creation and image sourcing is the customer’s responsibility. We will request content to upload when required.
We can assist with content writing and image selection, at additional cost, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Are images included in the price?
We recommend unsplash.com, pexels.com and pixabay.com as a good source of commercially-licensed free stock images.
What design changes can be made?
Some structural changes such as spacing, duplicating and repositioning sections may also be made without being classed as a new page layout.
Larger changes will likely result in a new page template being created and counted.
Is my website supported after launch?
Our Standard Website Plan comes with a Site Management Plan included the first year
Our Basic Website Plan is bundled with Site Essentials.
Both plans provide security and maintenance support, development time and hosting.
What is Support Time?
Standard Website Plans have 2 hours of Support Time each month during the first year.
