We Get Digital – FAQs Websites and SEO
Frequently Asked Questions
With consideration, thought and detail.
We wrote a book on Website Planning back in 2009 and so much of it is still relevant today – happy to send you a PDF copy if you want!
Planning your website is critical for the whole project to run smoothly. For you to get the website you and your clients want and also for your website designer and builder to fully understand what you are requiring.
If you are not sure of exactly what you want then any website design worth their salt will have a good planning session with you and between you make the right decisions for your website and business and even marketing moving forward.
One of the first things we ask is for our prospective clients to research and send us a couple of websites that they aspire to and why. If not the whole website then to find websites and elements of websites which we can work to and gain a thorough understanding of what is liked and required. This is a great starting point.
If you have any questions at all about website planning we are always happy to chat on 0203 730 1785.
We mainly use WordPress as we find this to be the most versatile, flexible and manageable platform. Many of our clients find WordPress easy to maintain when they want to change an image or add some text once their site is built.
We also build customised (coded) websites if required.
You will need to have a good amount of copy for your website. Ideally at least 600 words on a page minimum. 2000 words is good. Don’t worry about writing too much because we can ‘hide’ copy in design elements so that the website is still visually appealing.
If you are not concerned with SEO then the minimum of 600 words should suffice. If you are concerned with SEO then you will need to seriously consider using a professional copywriter to help with this. We have a fantastic SEO copywriter who we collaborate with on a regular basis.
Website hosting is where all the files and folders of your website sit. A bit like a computer but it is called a server. Everyone who has a website need hosting.
There are various hosting packages and it can be very confusing. However, if you think about it also like a computer and the bigger your site and the faster and more secure and proficient you want the computer to be then this is going to cost more.
We have a hosting package which is suitable for most small to medium sized business websites. We have top notch security and the correct certification and speeds to make sure that your site will always run efficiently. It is also fully managed hosting so that if anything happens to your site regarding the hosting side of things we will fix it. Contact us at any time for details about our hosting. Call 0203 7301785 for a chat about hosting and any questions you have regarding this element of a website.
This is very much like “how long is a piece of string” unfortunately! It’s very hard to quote an accurate price for a new website until we know the full scope of the work required and how long we estimate the job to take. But you can visit this page to see more about the cost and what you get for your Website investment.
We Get Digital are highly competitive price-wise, and we have some fantastic 5-Start reviews from many satisfied customers. REVIEWS
No. We spread the cost of your new website over 3 payments, but we are happy to extend these terms a little if that helps, please ask.
Your website will be 100% yours (providing full payment has been made) but we are happy to help you manage and maintain the site moving forward. We have a very comprehensive and affordable maintenance and management service, ask us for details!
With careful planning and understanding of exactly what your needs are and, more importantly, what you clients are wanting to see as well.
Yes, of course you are involved! We want you to be very involved in the whole process, it is YOUR website after all! We always work very closely with our clients. We will keep you up-dated on progress and have live meetings (usually over Zoom or in-person if suitable) to check progress and discuss design etc.
If you are looking to run your own website and do all your own updates moving forward, we will provide a few screencasts which will help you do this.
As we are sure you can imagine this entirely depends on the complexity of the website. One of the main things that holds up and delays a website design and build is the creation of content, choosing and editing images and videos.
We can, of course, help with content creation but this is usually a separate job and most of the time we are receiving content from our clients.
So, design is one thing and building is another – but the content is King… as always.
Contact us for any questions you may have at this stage. It is really important to have a plan for the content creation as this also informs the design and structure of your website. 0203 730 1785
Our websites are very user-friendly in the back-end dashboard area. We can show you how to add images or amend any copy. We will provide a few screencasts for you so that you can do this yourself if you want to. We do include an element of amends within our Maintenance and Mangement packages.
Please note, any major work or additions would have to be carried out by an experienced web developer or someone with the relevant skills.
