Are you looking to grow your business? Do you want your business to get seen by all of your ideal customers every single day? Or do you want to improve your image?
What makes an effective Website?
So what should you include on your site?
How does it work?
How does our design process work? Every project follows the same process. This ensures everything stays on track and both parties are aware of whats going on.
1. Understanding Site Goals
We chat to you about your business, where you want to take it in the short and long term. Understanding your goals is essential to building the right strategy.
2. Create a Wireframe
A wireframe is essentially a rough mockup of what your website will look like. Although the wireframe does have a rough design it is more for site structure and to plan the user experience.
3. Build the site
Once you’re happy with the how the site will be designed we will get cracking with building a 1st draft. All of our sites will be built on WordPress.
4. Review and Test
After submitting a 1st draft there will be x2 more additional revisions to get the website complete. The website will be fully user tested for different browsers and devices.
What people have to say about us
Frequently asked questions
The length of time it takes to build a website depends on many factors. The first and most obvious reason would be the size of the website. Second would be how complex it is. Does it need special or custom features? The third is any holdups that may occur. If the web designer needs information off of the client sometimes this can take quite some time. Business owners are often busy with their business and do not get time to supply the web designer with the required information for the project.
To give you an estimate most projects take anything between 1 to 2 months but can take longer because of the points above.
Yes, your website will need to be updated and backed up regularly. This ensures it is always running efficiently and it always has a newly updated back up off-site in case of any outside attacks on your site. A maintenance plan can be set up where we would look after your website for you.
Once your website is complete and is paid for in full the website becomes fully your property and will therefore be handed over to you. If you want to make changes we can show you how to make them or if your uncomfortable with making changes we can arrange a maintenance plan. Maintenance plans vary in price depending on what needs to be done. Usually, they are around £100 per month or if you do not need maintenance regularly it can be charged hourly at £50 per hour.
We will always re-build websites instead of redesigning an existing one. Quite often a rebuild would be quicker to do than a redesign. With a rebuild, we can also ensure it has been built correctly and there are no problems. We can use all the existing content on your old website and we would build the new site on an alternative domain meaning there would be no disruption to your existing site whilst the new one is being built.
Yes absolutely. Building a new website does not mean you need a new domain name. Having an older domain name is also beneficial for search engine optimisation so we would encourage you to keep your existing domain if possible instead of buying a new one.
Different web designers or web design agencies will charge for websites in different ways. Some will charge by the number of pages, some will charge an hourly rate, others sometimes charge a monthly subscription.
Whilst none of the above is the right or wrong way to price a website here at OA Design Services, we price websites slightly different.
We’re committed to helping you to achieve your business goals. We see your website as a tool. Therefore, we implement project-based pricing. Our prices are based on the return on investment we think you will get from a project. That way we know you will be getting good value for money. We build solution-based websites and not just websites that look pretty.
Our websites typically range anything from £1000 to £10,000 depending on your business goals and needs. There are no hidden cost in our prices and once you have paid we do not ask for more money throughout the project; everything is priced in.
The face behind the company
Shortly after completing my degree in graphic design BA (hons) I set up my business.
I take huge pride in what I do and there is nothing more satisfying than having a happy client.
Although I appreciate good design I also know that good design alone will not cut it when it comes to business.
The design needs to be functional and help the business owner achieve their long and short term goals.
Outside of work I like to keep active. My hobbies include, motorcycling, skiing, going to the gym, boxing, fishing and just generally socialising with friends and family.
