Carlie Qirem, Chief Operating Officer
Do you need a fresh looking website that works for your business?
It’s time to think about replacing the starter website you no longer love but cannot justify spending big replacing. You might have looked at online builders but you know they’ll probably end up frustrating you with their limitations and hidden costs.
Maybe there isn’t even a website at all – with your fledgeling business being run from a seemingly random collection of social media pages, landing pages, email lists, and Paypal links. It’s worked brilliantly so far but you know it’s time to bring everything together into a clean-looking website.
You might have put this off as you don’t have the time to think about it or learn a load of tech skills. It’s not what you do best, after all.
But how can you get the site you want without the big bill you don’t?
Roughly 85% of consumers use the internet to discover and find local businesses
No frills delivery, same quality website
When we set out to create a website plan for freelancers, coaches and startups we started by looking at where the biggest costs in a website project comes from. (Spoiler alert: it’s project management and design)
We’ve already solved the design challenge by using professionally designed templates as the basis for your new site. But how could we remove the project management? After all, the PM is the main driving force for a website project.
The good news? For the small and simple sites, we realised that project management could be removed as the project is small enough for a Developer to manage directly.
This means we can offer you the same quality website while keeping costs down, without cutting quality.
- We use the same development team and pre-built templates for our “done with you” option
- You’ll receive a secure, fully managed, business-optimised WordPress website at a much lower cost.
- You’ll be in the driving seat and you’ll engage directly with your assigned Developer
- We’ll set everything up in our project collaboration tool, BaseCamp, to keep things organised.
Your site can be ready in as little as a week.
Need changes later? No problem – your plan includes 30 minutes of technical support time for additional development – no more surprise bills. Just raise a request through our ServiceDesk and it will be taken care of. No fuss. no drama.
Perfect for startups and businesses with simple website requirements. Ready in as little as a week and fully managed with hosting & 30 minutes of support each month.

Q: How long does it take to build a website?
A: We can build a website in as little as a week.
Q: Will my site look like my competitors?
A: No, unlike some of our competitors, we don’t limit your choices to a few generic templates. We will customise every template to perfectly fit your brand.
Q: Can I change the images?
A: Of course, you can supply your own images and/or find stock images you can use that will fit the design
Q: Can I change the layout?
A: Absolutely. You have full control over how you’ll site will look to make it perfectly fit your personality & brand.
Q: I don’t have a brand (or I don’t want to use it). Is this a problem?
A: It depends. We can build using what you have already but you might want our designers to create something fresh and new, from a simple logo redraw up to a full rebrand.
Ordering & Payments
Q: Can I order and pay online each month?
A: Yes. All plan payments are online via Direct Debit
Q: Can I pay in full instead of Direct Debit?
A: Sure. Drop us a message and we’ll send you an invoice
Q: Who actually owns the website?
A: During the first year, we retain ownership of the site (not your content) until the balance is paid off. At this point, website ownership transfers to you. If paying in full, the site is owned by you from the start
Q: What happens after the first year?
A: If you’d like us to continue managing, hosting and supporting your website then you’ll move to a Care Plan. If , instead, you are leaving us at that stage (we’ve not had one yet) we’ll package and supply your site for you to transfer to your new provider.
Q: Are there any additional costs?
A: No. Our Website Plan prices are all published and fixed. Should your requirements change during the build there may be additional work needed and this will be discussed with you at the time if it requires an adjustment to your monthly fee.
Q: Do I need to do any updates?
A: No – and we recommend you don’t as we’ll review and test on a copy of your website where needed.
Q: Are all plugins included?
A: Yes, free plugins are included in all plans. Premium (paid) plugins are included with Site Management Plans & bespoke websites.
Q: Do you look after security?

Q: What is included in routine maintenance?
A: Updates to WordPress Core, Themes and plugins
Q: What about development? Is this classed as Maintenance?
A: No. Minor Development changes are made using included Support Time included in Site Essentials and Site Management Plans. TimeBank can also be purchased separately for this kind of work.
Q: How do I make changes to my website?
A: You are free to make changes yourself to content to layouts using the Elementor builder, but with up to 60 minutes of support time available each month most of our clients ask us to do it.
Q: How do I get support?
A: Simply visit our ServiceDesk and log a request for our technical team to sort for you.
Q: If I don’t use my support time, does it roll over?
A: No, your support time is reset monthly

Q: What can I ask for help with?
A: Anything. We can sort most routine issues out for you.
