We offer website and graphic design (e.g. logos), image manipulation & search engine optimisation. Website statistics can be provided to show how many users visit your sites and which pages are most popular.
Choose from a selection of templates then we can tailor the website to fit your needs. You can change the colour scheme, add your own wording, logos, photos, maps etc. Either email or post your photos and images and other details so we can make a start straight away.
This is the name given to your website (usually starting with www...) that allows it to be found on the "world wide web" (internet). No two websites can use the same domain name. However, because part of the domain name ends with a common extension (.com, .co.uk, .net, .me.uk, etc.), two similar websites can exist - for example, www.JoeBloggs.com could be a completely different website to www.JoeBloggs.net.
Website domain names can be created based on any name or phrase, but it is usually best to find a domain name that is unique to your business, or perhaps use your own name (e.g. www.SmithsBuilders.com or www.JoanAllen.me.uk). Sometimes, it is worth having part of your domain name include a keyword (something that is entered into search engines by people looking for a website). We can suggest suitable domain names if you can not decide on one. Request a domain name when you place your order and this will be registered on your behalf (if it is available).
Your website code is hosted on a Windows or Linux server (computer) and provides all the space you need for your website. Email mailboxes can be created (100 MB for no additional cost, or 1 GB for an additional annual fee).
Additional features can be incorporated into your website, e.g. password protection for areas of the website (e.g. for members of an association). Website statistics can be set up using the free tools provided by Google - these can show how often your website pages are accessed and how many new visitors you receive.
"Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users." [Wikipedia]
Submit your request by email or post with any specific information you need incorporating into your graphic or logo - e.g. colour, design, wording, images. All graphic design work is costed against the time taken to complete the work (at £40 per hour, with a minimum charge of £20).
Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
EMAIL REQUEST - send an email to email@example.com with details of the work you would like undertaken.
AGREE PRICE FOR WORK - once we have agreed what your website will look like a price for the work will be agreed. A deposit (50% of the cost) is paid in advance and the remaining 50% is paid on completion of your website (when you are happy that everything has been completed to your satisfaction). A refund of the deposit will only be offered if no work has been carried out on your behalf. Direct costs incurred for domain registration or hosting would not be refunded.
SEND MATERIAL FOR YOUR WEBSITE TO RBWD (UK) - either post or email the relevant material for your website (images, logos, wording, contact details etc.). A temporary website will be created so you can provide feedback and make any necessary changes before your site becomes available to the public. An estimated time for completion will be provided so you know when to expect your website to ‘go live’. If you need an email address to go with your domain (e.g. ask@YourDomain.co.uk) - either forwarding to your current email mailbox or to a new, separate mailbox, please ask.
WEBSITE MAINTENANCE - if you need any changes made to your website, email details to firstname.lastname@example.org and these will be incorporated (at an agreed hourly rate). Allow up to 5 working days for changes to appear on your site.
