The cost of your website and what it includes depends entirely on your wants and needs. I offer a sliding scale pricing system in order to tailor my service to suit your specific needs. I can create simple & functional, to high-performing eCommerce websites; catering for budgets of any size. I offer all manner of functionality from eCommerce Solutions, & Event / Workshop Booking to Diary Display. In no time at all, you’ll be able to grab your shiny new website, and venture out into the world! The support doesn’t end there. I offer an aftercare solution offering complete peace of mind. This monthly maintenance plan includes regular updates and back-ups, and minor changes such as blog post uploading, and image & text editing etc… to increase your functionality so your website remains fluid while your business grows.
Please note, the sliding scale is to give you a rough idea of the cost, every website needs different functionality, and I will quote projects on an individual basis.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PROJECT
Do you have a project in mind? I would love to hear about it, fill out the brief questionnaire below to start the ball rolling!
Whether starting from scratch or refreshing an existing website, I can’t wait to find out more. No one knows your business like you do, so I ask that you provide some details about what you’re looking for before the next step. This ensures I come to your initial consultation (in person, or via Skype) prepared to get into the details.
Once I have received your Web Design Project Form you will have the opportunity to find out more about my process, and book your free 30-minute consultation.

WEBSITE DESIGN FAQs
Why Choose The Indie Design Co. For Your Web Design Project?
I am full to the brim with enthusiasm and creativity with the intelligence and commitment to ensure that the designs created for you are focused, with a strong business rationale. Quality and satisfaction are a guarantee! Well respected within the creative industry, my Cheshire based studio creates some of the most stylish and effective professional websites.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
The Indie Design Co. is based in Daresbury, Cheshire, in the UK. I predominantly work with clients all over the UK, though I have worked with clients as far afield as South Africa. Location is never a problem as there are so many ways to communicate and share ideas and progress.
WHAT KIND OF WEBSITES DO YOU DESIGN?
I create simple brochure websites to fully functional eCommerce websites (specialising in creative industry businesses… although, by no means limited to this!) I use the WordPress platform (to understand more about WordPress, please refer to my WordPress Glossary here). By using WordPress, it will be a dream to navigate and you will be able to easily update your own content from blog posts to shop products. You can be assured of a beautifully designed website built upon robust foundations.
WILL MY WEBSITE BE RESPONSIVE TO ALL SCREENS?
Absolutely! During the final stages of the development process, I test the new website on all the popular web browsers and operating systems. I only ever create responsive websites because many (if not the majority) of your website visitors will browse your website on a mobile phone or tablet. Your website will alter to fit the screen it is being viewed on, sometimes, however, it might be a little off on a particular sized screen and as it is not possible to check them all (who owns all the phones and tablets in the world??) so just let me know and I can rectify the issue.
WHAT IS THE TIMESCALE FOR MY WEBSITE OR PROJECT?
We will discuss and agree upon a timescale for your website or project. Typically a web design project takes 4-6 weeks, however, it could be sooner or later.
WHO WILL MAINTAIN MY WEBSITE?
You can, or I can (or a bit of both!)
I offer monthly maintenance packages to all of my clients. This is a small monthly payment plan for ongoing service where I basically act as the caretaker for your site. This includes things like security updates and website/database backups. Backups are made to the site weekly and are stored securely in the cloud via my business DropBox account. 2 backup versions are kept at all times. The site is monitored 24/7, so that if there are any security breach attempts I am aware and can restrict access, I cannot guarantee that your site will never be hacked (I am pretty sure no one can guarantee that, but I do take security threats seriously and do as much as I can to keep the site clean). Also included: minor changes to the site including adding posts/articles/news, changing images/text. etc… But does not include: the installation of new plugins for functionality which requires a fair bit of work to settings/styling etc… or any major styling changes. Any larger changes will be priced per hour or per project and are not included in the maintenance package.
Alternatively, I will teach you how to make updates to your site when your site goes live. If you choose not to take up the maintenance package you will be responsible for your site completely. If you need assistance after I hand your website over to you, you will be billed at my hourly rate.
You don’t need to buy a maintenance package, however, I would recommend it as all of the components that make up your website are updated constantly and separately of one another, and they don’t always play nicely together.
HOW WILL I KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE VISIT MY SITE?
As standard, I include Google Analytics. It’s a free Google tool that tells you how many visitors you have had, which pages they visited, where they came from, and a whole lot more.
WILL MY WEBSITE BE SEO FRIENDLY?
As standard, I create search engine friendly websites. Included in the project is an SEO plugin to help get you started. Ongoing SEO is a really good idea to help build your business. Social Media and fresh quality content on your website go a long way to build a solid reputation, however, if you want to get serious about your marketing efforts, I can suggest a fantastic company that specialises in this service.
HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
Once you receive my quote and would like to proceed, I request that you sign a contract and pay an initial 30% deposit to secure your spot on my calendar. The second instalment is due just before the project starts, with the final payment due before the website goes live.
I issue invoices electronically and they will have all of my payment details on. Payments can be made via BACS or Cash.
