Step 1. Get in touch. If you need a new WordPress website then all we need to get started are a few details, which you can supply by completing the contact form. If the contact form seems inappropriate, just use the email address on the contact page to send whatever information you feel is relevant at this stage.
It helps if you provide a summary of what your organisation does and give us an outline of what you want your website to achieve for you. Please do not attach big files or dozens of images to your initial email – they can stop that all important first email from getting through.
Step 2. Initial work. It is very difficult to produce an estimate at an early stage for what we would charge for a new site. We usually ask for a small upfront payment (£ 120) to get things underway. Once we know a little more, we can give an estimate for remaining work.
We will show you WordPress websites which are in different styles so that you can say which you prefer. For example www.e-air.co.uk and www.e-gold.co.uk are traditional sites with menus. Is that the approach you want, or do you need something more adventurous, like a single page website?
Step 3. Evolution. Our preferred way of working is ‘evolution’. We believe that it is better to make lots of small changes rapidly than to try to get a detailed specification in advance. We want your website to emerge by a process of evolution – bad ideas quickly removed and good features built on.
As this is a WordPress site, you can take it over and edit it yourself at any point. You are never locked in to a long term contract.
Step 4. Go live. Once you are happy with the site design it is time to ‘go live’. If we have been building the site on our internal facility then we will help you find the best WordPress website hosting service for you, then help you transfer the site to them.
Usually, though, the WordPress website host will already have been decided and the site will be there ready to go with our full support.
