Harness the powerful benefits of an in-house Telford website design team without the traditional upfront cost.
Building a first-class website is not cheap. At the lower end of the scale, most website designers charge between £1,000-£2,000 for a basic website and an eCommerce site is more likely to be in the region of £5,000 at the low end. That's a lot of money to lay out for something that may not provide a substantial return on investment for many months to come.
The problem lies not in the finished product, but how the search engines (primarily Google) function. It is usually a good three months from site launch until you begin to see any reasonable traffic from organic search and that also depends on how well your content performs and your external linking strategy.
When you begin fleshing out your cashflow spreadsheet a new website design is going to put you in the red very quickly!
The idea behind pay monthly websites is not a new one but the concept of providing website design as a service is gaining popularity. There is not much to be gained from commissioning a new website unless you are going to promote it actively and consistently improve it. The competition is always working towards a better iteration of their product.
How Does A Pay Monthly Website Plan Work?
There is no setup fee and no upfront charges, so your outlay is absolutely minimal. The contract length is 12 months which means that you are able to spread the cost over a financial year and we can reclaim our expenditure over the same period.
By the time you are fully invested, you will have search engine traffic and a great looking website all without spending heavily upfront in internet technology. It is clearly a win/win proposition.
Why Don't I Build A Website Myself?
Modern website building tools are becoming more sophisticated and easier to use than ever before. It's easy to build a website but to make it look presentable to your clients or customers is a whole other ball game.
I know this because the first website I built was website builder reviews where I reviewed all the best tools for making an eCommerce website. With the success of the site, I was frequently asked to provide extra services like logo design and social media management. In the end, the demand got so big that I built this agency website as a solution!
Using a drag and drop website builder (for example Wix, Weebly) makes the whole creation process straightforward. The problem for you is that you don't have an eye for detail or any photoshop skills let alone an understanding of basic design concepts like white space or font kerning.
This is why so many Shopify sites look the same because they are made from the same template and owners don't have the design skills to be able to modify them.
DIY website builders are great if you have some appreciation of design, but if you want to elevate yourself above the competition, you need more than amateur chops for the gig.
Pay monthly websites are intended to fill the gap in the marketplace between those who are trying to bootstrap their way to success on a shoestring and higher end websites costing tens of thousands of pounds.
What Do I Get For My Money?
You'll get a secure bespoke website built by our expert design team right here in Telford in the heart of the West Midlands. Take a look at our design portfolio for some fantastic inspiration and a tantalising glimpse of what we can produce for you. As well as the completed website we'll also include making content changes, adding content and generally managing the site on your behalf.
You'll have no need to worry about hosting or a domain name, and as your company grows so, your website can also grow with it.
The best bit is that you can reclaim your time. If you don't understand HTML or know your .png from your .jpg then building a website yourself can result in an enormous amount of lost time. That time could be much better utilised contacting prospective new clients or improving your product or service.
What Extra Features Does My Website Come With?
Your pay monthly website comes with everything you would expect from a first class design agency including live chat, a booking and event calendar system, full eCommerce functionality, social media share icons and hosting all included. Did I mention you'll also get a free domain name added as well?
All WeBuildStores websites are fully responsive meaning they will look great on a mobile or tablet as well as a desktop and you can also control the mobile layout seperately if you wish.
Support costs are included so there won't be any additional monthly maintenance charges and your website comes search engine optimised right from day one.
The site will be added to Google search console, a sitemap created and page titles and descriptions fully optimised. Google analytics tracking comes as standard.
To summarise, a pay monthly website gives you all the high class website design aspects that you would normally associate with massive up front cost along with the support and security of working with a talented team of designers and developers.
