How to keep your costs down

The final cost of developing your website will reflect the amount and type of work involved - which in turn, will depend on the choices you make about format, size, complexity and functionality.

But once these decisions have been made, I will be able to give you a clear estimate of likely costs - and this figure will be reflected in the final bill unless you ask for additional items during the development process or make major changes to the specification we've already agreed.

With this in mind, there are a number of ways in which you can help to contain and control your budget.

  • keep your website simple - to avoid the need for complex and time-consuming coding
  • use your existing domain name and web-hosting package, if you are happy with them
  • don't include fancy web devices that you aren't going to use
  • provide your own photos, logos, images and graphics
  • use existing material (where appropriate) for your website content - such as photos, text from your current leaflets and brochures, and any graphics, letterheads or logos that you may have already
  • check your text content carefully, so that I don't have to spend too much time editing it - or writing copy - myself
  • send your content material to me in electronic format, rather than on paper
  • don't make changes to the specification, once agreed!
