How to choose the right web design company ?

  1. Always shop around.
  2. Provide as much detail as you can.
  3. Cheapest is not always the best.
  4. Take your time.
  5. Partnership.


Always shop around.

We recommend that you look around, locally or nationally with your requirements and find the company that works for you. Receiving quotes and recommendations from others only makes your decision more valuable. Search for companies on your preferred search engine [google] and get in touch with at least 3 different businesses that provide the same or similar services.

You might ask why we are telling customers to go look somewhere else ?

The answer is simple: everything we do is 100% transparent, you know what you pay for from day 1 to Launch day GO-LIVE. We have a clear action plan from signing up for your project through the middle of it and the end. You will be always looped in at all points of development so you can reflect on the go and make any changes if required. That is why we use fluid development practices that are the best for your business.

We do not lock you in the box and put scope on your project. 

We do not charge extra if changes do not exceed agreed development time vs Spent.

That is why, we strongly recommend to go and search and find the best deal that works for you. We do partnerships not contracted work. We succeed with you, we grow and are able to scale application and business with your success. Giving you peace of mind for the future.

Provide as much detail as you can.

To get your best and most accurate price for your development, we require as much detail about your business current services or products that you sell. The reason for that is to deliver the most accurate future proofed website application to suit your business.

Every business is unique even if they come from the same sector, and will have their own “POS” point of sale that is unique to them. With that in mind we reflect this in design, and branding across the web application that we develop. It is always good to know the desired result so you can make it as complex or as simple, to reflect your business needs.

This will allow us to give you the best and most accurate quote.

Cheapest is not always the best.

To put it plainly, there are millions of companies that can build a website. From page builder sites like wix, and others that offer you simple drag and drop solutions that will make your information displayed on page and available online. And in most parts there’s nothing wrong with that. If you do not have a budget to spend with a developer or agency this might be your best option to do it yourself, and again this is nothing wrong whatsoever. Everyone is respected for the decisions they are making at the time they need a website. How much does it cost to make a website ? It depends on many factors but let’s just break this down so you can calculate and make sense out of this. Say 5 page website [ Home, 1-2 service pages , about us, contact us].

  1. Project setup usually 1h-2h
  2. Writing content each page needs 600 words as minimum. 3h per page = 15h
  3. Logo; if don’t have and need to make one 4h + time for amends.
  4. Visual concept to make your website home page look nice 8-12h + time for amends
  5. Building the rest of the pages 4-6h + time for amends.
  6. Form building 1h
  7. Review your website time for amends usually 1-2h depending on how many pages
  8. Go live 2h depending on experience.

If we tally this you will spend 1[2h] + 2[15h] + 3[4h optional] + 4[12h] + 5[6h] 6[1h] + 7[2h] + 8[2h] = 44h

As you can see, a simple website will take 44h to make from start to finish assuming you have the technical skills knowledge of basic html css, javascript + eye for detail and you know how to use the tools available to you. If you do not and you just want to do it all and learn as you do multiply that by 5.

You might ask why 5 ?  This will allow you to learn all you need on the go. The time you spend 220h Multiply that by the rate you earn now whatever that is. 

For this example let’s use minimum wage  £9.5 per hour? £2090

The savings come in if you just write the text and supply it to the company that you choose to develop your website. This will save you money and will be more accurate as you know your business.

You would usually will see the quotes for a 5 page simple website bespoke made to your business from £1000 – £1500.

Using the same scenario Web Level up would quote for such a job: 16h [Excludes content writing and logo creation] @ £80 per hour. £1280 + vat again this would vary if other variables are in place this is not a quote but a demonstration on how companies work out their costs.

Like we mentioned before we are transparent on what we do so there are no hidden costs or work done that you don’t see.

Take your time.

Once you receive your first quote do not rush to accept this. Some companies hire sales teams to push to close the deal because they are commission based and all they are interested in is to close and turn the wheel next next next. Take your time deciding the right business you wish to partner with.  In the end it’s who you will entrust to be your online ambassador to lead the way through technology that will help your business grow digital presence.  With Web Level Up is simple, we are here to help you and with that in mind take as long as you need to make the right decision.
