“Blimey, Danny, is it really going to cost me £55 a month for you to do my website? That sounds like a lot of money.”
Actually, that’s not an unusual reaction from potential clients when they’re told of our fixed rate pricing.
Other customers are less combative on the subject of budgets. But you can just tell from the look on their faces that they’re struggling to work out where all that cash goes!
Now, before you start thinking we must have a very short client list, with customers running away from us at a speed that would give Usain Bolt a run for his money, then you would be completely wrong. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. So hear us out before you abandon ship!
The first thing to point out is this. We will never quote you astronomical figures for giving you a respectable presence on the internet.
In fact, we won’t charge you a single penny upfront for creating a stylish, practical and eye-catching website. No, sir!
What you get for your £55 per month is a bespoke site of up to 10 pages – individually designed and developed in-house (none of that identikit, off-the-shelf stuff), together with unlimited updates and amendments, as well as basic search engine optimisation for title and description tags.
All of our tailored made, eye-catching websites are tried and tested on the most common and up to date platforms, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox & Safari.
Oh, and we’ll also include hosting and three active email addresses.
Here’s a snapshot of what £55 actually gets you:
- No upfront cost - 12 month contract
- Bespoke website design and development
- 10 Pages
- Unlimited updates and amendments
- Responsive website/mobile friendly
- Basic search engine optimisation for Title Tags & Description Tags
- Google Analytics
- Social Media Integration/Links
- Telephone support
- Email support
- Daily backups
- 3 x active sync email addresses
All this for just £660 per year – broken down into 12 easy monthly instalments.
That’s about the same cost as two quarter page adverts in a local weekly newspaper with a very limited shelf life. Whereas, your £660 spend with us provides you with 24/7 exposure to your target audience.
OK, you say, we can now see where you’re coming from. But where will I appear on Google?
The honest answer is that it would be unrealistic to give a cast iron guarantee that you’ll achieve first page on Google all the time. However, that doesn’t mean to say you won’t be top of the hit parade at least some of the time.
Of course, there are things that you can do – or we can do for you – to help improve your SEO rankings. Such as:
- Provide good quality content and changes
- Regular Blogs
- Social Media
- Extra SEO charged at £45 + vat an hour to enhance your rankings, example creating landing pages/areas covered
- Google Plus
Fine. But we haven’t got time to think up material, let alone write it properly, you say.
Well, that won’t be a problem. We employ the services of an experienced and accommodating copywriter who’ll not only provide suggestions for blog material but also write all the copy you need – from scratch. This can be done as frequently as you require, although we would recommend that a monthly blog update would probably be optimal to keep the site fresh and SEO friendly. Talk to us about how to create cost effective website copy and blog packages.
It would be remiss of us to ignore the benefits of social media – and we can make sure that any presence you have on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram or other platforms will all neatly interface with your website.
As an overall package, we think this all adds up to a great deal. From a baseline £55 a month, you can bolt on as much or as little as you like from our additional specialist, upgraded, value-add services.
You may be quoted more elsewhere, you may be quoted less. But we’d stake our reputation on the level of service, expertise and support you’ll find with us.
We like to think this is why, in the space of a few short years, Fountain Digital has attracted, and continues to serve, dozens and dozens of companies – of all shapes, sizes and business sectors across an ever increasing geographical area.
We take our responsibilities very seriously and work hard to build long term relationships with all our clients – to provide the presence needed to help skyrocket your profit and exposure on the world wide web.
