How do I send the text?

email the information as a Microsoft WORD document. You
can also send the information on CD or a memory stick or

your web page. As with pictures, text should be clearly
labeled with page 1, page 2, etc or with the title of the

What Happens Then?
A. Once we have agreed on your requirements we will begin
to design your website. We produce an initial draft which
we host on the internet in a Customer Demonstration area.
We aim to have a draft design ready for your approval within
7/14 working days. If you are happy with the draft design
we will then create your website in the same style.
Q. How long does the process take?
A. It really depends on the complexity of your website and
how quickly we agree on your specific requirements and we
receive all the relevant materials. It could be up to 30
days to complete a design and once I have received the final
payment the site becomes live.
What is the 'Typical' solution to designing a new website?
A typical solution is based upon 3 stages as outlined below:
Stage One - Initial Requirements Specification
Following an initial meeting to discuss your requirements
and the functionality, look and feel of your website we
will produce a detailed specification and costing for review,
amendment and final agreement. The website address (domain
name/url) is agreed and registered by us (subject to availability)
and a holding page set up on our dedicated servers showing
your company details.
Stage Two - Prototyping
A draft website is produced to define the 'look and feel'
and is hosted on our Customer Demonstration server to allow
for your review of progress to date. The initial draft is
intended to identify a set of features which may then be
refined into an acceptable design. Once the design has been
search phrases will also be researched and agreed, so that
the website will achieve a reasonable position in the search
Stage Three - Build and Review
When an acceptable draft design has been agreed, the functionality
is added, the system is tested and optimised for search
engines. At this point your new website will be 'released'
onto the desired web address (URL) and made available to
the general public.
Following release, we will market the website by submitting
to appropriate free directories and search engines. It should
be noted that Google may take up to 6 months for your website
to appear on the front page of the rankings.
website design quotation includes the first year of hosting
and minor ongoing updates. The annual management fee includes
12 months hosting on our dedicated servers, continued domain
name registration and minor in year updates and website
promotions. Any major re-designs will be subject to further
requirements capture and quotation.
