Sites to behold
How do I get a website that works?
“Right from the start Kabo were fantastic – they asked all the right questions about our customer and what the website needed to do, and they kept a focus on that throughout the project, helping us refine our ideas into a well laid out, conversion friendly website.”
Marketing Consultant, Carters Steam Fair
There’s nothing we like better than a chat with a new customer. We’ll jump on a 30-60 minute call to learn more about what you do and what you need.
We build great websites because we take the time to learn about your business, how the website will contribute to that, why you want a new website and what you want it to do.
So we’ll ask you to submit a short (brief!) brief, and we’ll ask some thoughtful scoping questions to make sure we fully understand the project. We’ll use all this information to build a website that exceeds your expectations!
Once we’ve got all the information we need (and checked it with you), we’ll deliver a proposal that covers exactly what we’ll do for you and how much it will cost.
We’ll start designing your website and any unique assets. Then we’ll ask you to take a look and offer your feedback so we all know it’s just right before we begin development.
Once the design has been agreed, we’ll build your website in WordPress. This part can be a bit quiet; there’s not much to share while Penni’s hammering away at the code!
The best part! We’ll launch your new website and provide you with some training so you can update the website content without us. Not that we’re going anywhere because…
We stick around
We’ll continue to handle hosting and regular maintenance. Enjoy the peace of mind of knowing we’re working to keep your site running smoothly.
We won’t abandon you
That’s just not our style. In fact, we love building long-term relationships with our customers. For some of them, we’re extensions of their team, doing regular work with them. For others, we work on projects as and when they occur. For all of them, we’re a phone call away if you need help and support.
We won’t abandon you. Promise.
Penni has made a complex website easy to use for us. That’s no small thing: her work has saved us many hours every week.
I usually come to Penni with problems, and she leaves me with solutions. No fuss, just brilliance 🙂 They’re some of my favourite people to work with, and I would happily recommend them time and again.”
Co-Founder, The Marketing Meetup
Our clients ask questions. We love to answer them.
From “how long will my website take?” to “what is DNS?”, we’re here to answer any question you might have. Here are some of the ones we answer most often. But if you have a question that’s not listed here, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re always happy to help!
How long will my website take?
- The scope of work to be done
- How quickly our client can provide feedback
- The number of revisions
The easiest way to find out how long your website will take is to ask us! Get in touch and we can give you a personalised estimate.
How much will my website cost?
Of course, websites that are complex, require more customisation, or are particularly large tend to cost more.
For ongoing support, we work with our clients on an hourly rate basis. Our hourly rate is £70/hr (exc. VAT).
Who do you work with?
We tend to work with businesses that either:
- Have marketing teams of 1 – 5 people;
- Are established owner-operated, or;
- Are startups with a clear plan and a little funding in the bank.
Do you host websites?
So we host our clients’ websites with Kinsta, a market-leading WordPress hosting company hosted on Google’s Cloud network. They’re top tier technical wizards who are very good at what they do, using only the best technology to keep your website up and running at its best.
We offer our clients a hosting and maintenance package at £75/month (exc. VAT) which includes a full goody bag of benefits:
- Hosting with Kinsta
- Monthly website plugin, theme and WordPress updates
- Premium plugins and tools: Akismet, Postmark SMTP, Perfmatters, Gravity Forms Elite, Divi Theme
- Hack fix guarantee
- Staging sites: your very own sandbox to safely break things in!
- Daily backups
Can you support my existing website(s)?
Maybe. We have lovely customers we’ve done this for and it’s worked out brilliantly for us all. We’ve chatted to others and we just weren’t the best fit for what they needed.
If the site(s) in question are using WordPress we’d be happy to have a chat.
What about SEO?
- Your website will have a sitemap which will be submitted to Google Search Console.
- There will be the tools available for you to add meta descriptions and titles for each page and post.
- Thought will be put into which archive pages should and should not be indexed.
- Your site will have a logical website structure with relevant URLs.
- Images will be given names and alt text that are relevant, accessible, and search engine-friendly.
- Your website will be built with performance in mind.
And while we don’t offer ongoing SEO services ourselves, we do know some brilliant SEOs we’re happy to recommend.
