Install and customise

Step 1

Contact us first by email or phone to discuss the basics of your website requirements.  We can then either arrange a meeting, have a chat over the phone or we can even do it all by email. We provide a fully detailed quote that follows the outcome of our discussion and then we decide on a mutually agreeable timescale.  As soon as we have a plan you are happy with, we can make a start.

Step 2

We host your development website with our WordPress-specific hosting provider WP Engine, in a ‘staging’ area until it is ready to go live. Over the course of the next couple of months we work closely with you to ensure that your new website will meet all your requirements.  This stage is all about constant communication between you and us to ensure a flexible evolution of the site to take into account changes you may wish to make along the way.

Step 3

At the end of the project the site is made live and we process it through Google to ensure that it is indexed as soon as possible. We generate handover documentation for you and provide initial technical support to guide you through taking full control of your new website.  Our hosting company WP Engine ensure that your site is as secure and as fast as it can possibly be.  Get in touch now to get your project started.

"The new website has been very well received and is clean, informative and straightforward to update."

"Totally innovative, enthusiastic and helpful … may be relied upon to “pull out all the stops” when the pressure is on."

"The end result was excellent and the personal service much appreciated."
