What is Web Design?

Any design is to do with the arrangement of text and graphics in an attractive way.  A website essentially arranges text and pictures in a nice way using the internet and web browsers such as internet explorer, safari and Firefox.  Web designers can use code to produce websites from scratch (ideal for bespoke or custom sites) or you can often use ‘do it yourself’ builders on the internet.

Who Needs a Website?

Most businesses benefit from a website!  It is a great way to allow visitors to find out more about your brand, what you offer and the services you provide.  It is a fab way to encourage people to buy from you, as you can produce amazing online shops which are easy to use (and save people from leaving the house!).  Many businesses use their website as a means to advertise themselves online and to provide information for their customers.

Why are Websites Useful for Businesses?

Websites enable visitors to find out more about a company easily, which was not as simple before the internet was created!  Lots of shoppers prefer to browse online before buying, especially for high value items where the cost is an important factor.  By having a functional and attractive website, you can encourage more people to choose your products over a competitor’s site.

How Much Does a Website Cost?

How long is a piece of string?!  In all seriousness, it is not simple to answer.  Much depends on the complexity of the website, how many features you want and how much the designer and developer need to write in code.  Some simple websites could cost around £1000, other more complex ones could be anywhere from £3000-£30,000!  It is very dependant on the needs of the website.
