How do you produce quality sites at such a low cost?

The most expensive part of web site design is the designer. I keep other overheads to a minimum and do not normally make site visits - discussion of content and design is done inexpensively via email Skype or telephone. If you require a personal visit, we would discuss the charge at the time. I also ask you to provide the majority of the words and images. I will then optimise the text for search engines. Sites where I am required to provide the images and write the text will inevitably cost more.

Where can I see examples of web sites designed by Chevinside?

Please visit the web design portfolio page where you will find links to some of the sites designed by Chevinside.

How do we order a web site or search engine optimisation?

Contact us by email, telephone (0114 360 1004), email, our contact form or post with a brief description of the nature of your business and the sort of image that you wish to project via the Internet.

How does the design process work?

For web site design I will then draft some possible options and email them to you as images of how the home page would look. You can then view these and decide which you would like. We can combine elements from different designs if you wish. If none of the designs are to your taste, we will repeat the process until one has the right look and feel. Once that is settled, unless you have asked me to source the images and write the copy, the next thing is to send me the words and pictures. We can then move on to building and uploading the site. Once the site is uploaded we can then carry out refinements that you may require.

For search engine optimisation, the process is similar, once we have settled on the SEO package and key search phrases, the work can begin.

Thanks for visiting and I look forward to working with you on your affordable low cost web site and promoting it in the search engines.

When do we pay?

Normally, not until your site is live on the internet. At that point, we will invoice and request payment within 21 days.

When do you require partial or full pre-payment?

For advertising accommodation on our Peak District web site, we require 12 months payment before we add the advert. For large e-commerce sites and sites that involve significant financial outlay for us to purchase software, we would require a deposit.

What marketing comes with our web site?

The standard packages include taking steps to get your web site into the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. Should you require further marketing on the Internet, contact us to discuss requirements and pricing. See the pricing page for more details.
