Design & Build Websites
A web presence that makes your business
stand out from the crowd.
Are you taking the first steps towards setting up a website for your business? Or perhaps your company has an established and successful web presence, but it’s time for a refresh.
Whatever your situation, Greaves Design can work with you to design and build a website that will take your company to the next level. We’ve built hundreds of successful websites for UK businesses, ranging from sole traders through to internationally renowned brands. That means we know what works and how to deliver a website that will exceed your expectations.
There are many ways to design and build a website. We could start with a blank piece of paper, then brainstorm the colours, styles, layouts, images, contents and functions that you like.
Alternatively, we can look at other websites with you to get an idea of what you like. Perhaps you already have set ideas about what you want. Whatever your starting point, we’ll work with you to design and build a website that’s an attractive and effective ‘shop window’ for your company.
What is consistent across all our web design projects is our 3-stage approach. This is what you can expect when Greaves Design designs and builds your website.
This stage is all about discovering the scope of the project and what you want to achieve. You may have a very clear idea of what you want for your new website; you may not really know. Perhaps all you can really say is that you want it to look impressive or professional. It doesn’t matter – we’ll work with you to imagine and implement the very best web presence it’s possible to achieve.
It all starts with a conversation – this could be a face-to-face meeting, but we’re equally happy to work with you over the phone or email. However we work together, we’ll take time to chat with you about what you need, what you like and dislike, and find out more about you and your company.
Then we’ll send you a no-obligation quote by email. If you’re happy to go ahead, we’ll start working out some ideas and concepts with you. The time and input required from you at this stage will vary, according to the kinds of features you want, such as an online shop, database and so on.
We can also create the content for your website – if you require this, we’ll send you a short email questionnaire to find out more about your company. This will help our skilled writers to get the content right first time. Alternatively, we can interview you over the telephone – whatever you prefer!
- It’s all about you: we want to get to know you and your business in as much depth as possible, so we can create the perfect website for you
- We’re flexible and can talk or meet at a time to suit you
- We understand you’re busy so we take care of as much as we can, to save you time
- But we make sure you’re involved and consulted every step of the way.
The second stage once we have established price, timescale, and what sort of website we are going to create for you is to get our copy writers (if required) to write the content for the website. Once this is done, the website is put together, using the ideas and themes agreed on.
This stage normally takes 7-10 days for standard brochure style websites – of course we can be flexible about this, according to your timescales.
- We want you to be happy: call or email us any time for an update
- We’ll let you know straight away if there are any delays or issues
- We can also take care of your domain names [link to that page] and hosting [link] – or work with your existing domain name and hosting set-up
- Nothing is set in stone: everything is flexible to fit around your requirements.
The final stage of building a website is normally down to you. This is your opportunity to review the website and its content, before it goes live, and let us know anything you want us to change or develop further.
Because we work very closely with all our clients to identify needs and preferences at the discovery stage, there are usually very few changes required by now. However, whether you simply want us to change a few lines of text, or require more radical changes, it’s not a problem. We’re not happy until you’re happy.
There’s no set timescale for this stage – take as long as you need to look at the draft site and give us your feedback. You might also want to get your staff or trusted clients to review and test it. We’ll wait until you’re completely satisfied before we set your website live.
- This stage is all about you: take as little or as long as you like
- We’re flexible and will keep making changes until you’re happy
- Ask us about anything technical – we’ll be able to find a solution
- If we’re setting up a linked email address, we’ll talk you through this and set them up on your computer or phone.
