So you need a new website, where do you start?

 

"I'd like a simple website, how much would you charge?"

We get asked this a lot. It's a fair question, but if I asked "how much does a small house cost?"
The response would sound something like...
"Well, how many bedrooms? Town or country? With a garden?"

Don't just ask what it costs,
understand what you need, and ask the right questions

Here are some guides to help you work with your website designer and get a website that works for you now, and for the future.

A little time now, will  save a lot of time later - save time, save money
