F.A.Q.

03. Will I need to supply my images optimised?

The quick answe is no.  It’s DONE FOR YOU.

You will be pleased to know that you don’t have to do anything except supply your photographs for the web design.  No cropping is required.  We resize and optimise your images for your website so the final dimensions are correct for the layout and content of your pages.

This is a complimentary service for you included with the build.

01. How soon will my Website be live?

To establish the build and start date we will need to collate all of the information for your website, colour palette, text, images, links and any embedded downloads ready for the work to begin.  An online portal will be sent to you.

Once we have collated the relevant information we need to build your site,  a week will be allocated in the diary so that we can work exclusively on your web design.  We aim to get the site completed and ready for approval within 10 days.   Websites need content without it the website cannot be built.   A manual of requirements will be sent to you in advance.

02. Do I need a Care Plan?

It is often true that the first time you know your website isn’t working is when you get a message to say so…. which could be days or even weeks before you know!  Especially if you don’t visit your website regularly maintain the upkeep of your site.

Our Care Plans give you peace of mind so that you can concentrate on running your business knowing that your website is being cared for!

“ I am so over the moon with my new website!  Just love it!!!   Thank you, thank you,  AMAZING!!!  Although my new website has only been live for the past couple of days I have already had several enquires and bookings!  What a result. The website has already paid for itself within a week!   It feels fantastic to have a professional-looking website for my business, and the design of the site is just me! I’ve had so much positive feedback from my customers.

I really can’t thank Julie Oswin enough, she has been amazing and worked so hard to get it looking perfect. In my eyes, it was excellent from the first preview, but Julie,  being the perfectionist she is,  made sure it worked and looked terrific on all platforms. 

Julie also designed my logo, which I absolutely love! I wish I had found her years ago to help me with the branding and my website.  You will not be disappointed if you choose Julie to create your website for you!”   Thanks again, Tracey x
