Why?

“Why should I have a website?”

It’s a question we’re asked a lot and the answer is always the same: yes!

It’s actually quite simple: having a website shows you’re serious about your business’s future. In today’s digital world, it’s a must for professionalism, accessibility, and staying competitive. Plus, investing in a website signals adaptability and forward-thinking. Sustainable design adds extra value, aligning with eco-conscious trends and enhancing your brand’s reputation. It’s not just about going green – it’s about showing your commitment to a better future.

First things first

Sometimes working out exactly what you want your website to do can be a little overwhelming. We’re more than happy to break out the Good Biscuits and invite you to come and spend some time with us discussing your options. In the meantime, have a look at the list below and hopefully, this should help you outline a brief.

  • Work out what you don’t like
    It does sound counterintuitive but trust us, you might have more of an opinion than you think! This information is really useful to us, when
  • Who is it aimed at?
    Who is your target audience – the ideal customers or clients? Describe them as a person: their age interests and needs. By making it personal, it will give you a better idea of the content needed and general feel of the site.

  • What’s your timeframe?
    Do you have a launch date in mind? Is there something you’d like to align with? Time of year, business anniversary?

  • What’s your budget?
    Yes, I know it’s a taboo question but it has to be asked. Work out which areas need to stand out and assign more budget there:

    • if your words are important, hire a copywriter;
    • if excellent imagery is essential, hire a photographer or purchase licensed stock imagery;
    • if you have specific website functionality needed, allocate budget towards that, e.g. membership area.
  • Who’s going to maintain it?
    We’ll take care of the overall maintenance but what about content updates? Uploading new products or events? What about blog posts?

Getting technical

Since the beginning of 2024, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint as a business. Alongside our green statement, we use industry-recognised best practices to create low carbon websites for our clients.

  • We convert imagery to WEBP to create smaller, richer images to make your site faster.
  • We choose design elements that require minimal energy to render, such as simple layouts and lightweight graphics.
  • We use caching mechanisms and implement lazy loading to reduce server loading.
  • We prioritise efficiency over resource-heavy, complicated design elements where possible. If unavoidable, we offer other ways to offset the environmental impact.

Pricing

We’ve simplified our pricing structure to offer 3 styles, all which offer:

  • hosting on our dedicated UK server, run on 100% renewable energy;
