How much does a bespoke website cost?

‘It depends’.

What about maintenance and support, content updates
and producing other digital/print assets?

Once a project is completed, clients will often ask if they can retain our services on an ongoing basis. This can be anything from regular WordPress maintenance, backing up your website’s database and hosted files to regular content updates and be producing other digital/print assets.

Managing your website and email accounts including a full backup is free for the first month after launch. Thereafter from time to time, your website’s HTML, theme, plugins and WordPress version will require updating. Updates typically happen when security patches or extra functionality is released. It’s good practice to keep your website updated to the latest versions. The top two reasons for sites being hacked are insecure passwords and outdated, vulnerable software.

Maintaining your website and keeping a backup off-site start from as little as £5.85 a month. You may also want to update your website with content on a regular basis or require the production of additional digital/print assets.

We offer long-term, retainer-based support for all clients. Usually, this support is tailored to your requirements with an agreed budget and a minimum commitment of 3 months. If you prefer to receive support without undertaking a contract, our pay-as-you-go rate is £40/hour or £300/day.

You may wish to use a Debit/Credit Card to purchase a fixed-term support package. Below are 2 bundles available to choose from.
