How much will a website cost me?
The amount that I charge per website design is based upon the solution needed for your requirements.

The amount for website hosting which is also includes secure hosting, domain registration and email accounts is a monthly cost of £10.
The pricing for budget friendly web design and hosting packages can be found here.
How does the website design process work?
I always aim to make the web design process as simple as possible for any project but they normally consist the following stages..
1) Planning and preparation
Depending on the complexity of the project, this can range from a simple phone call to several meetings in which the outcome is the main purpose of the website, a clear indication of your requirements, the audience the website is for and a creative solution proposed.
The next step would be for myself to create a series of mock up web site designs in which you will be asked to carefully consider each one and review.
Once the website design is signed off, a process usually required to be confirmed in writing, the domain name is registered, the hosting set up and the actual creation of the web site begins.
Upon completion of your web site, and after uploading to a testing server, it is time to test the site.
Once you’re happy with the website, it’s now ready to go live!
5) Final Analysis
New websites are monitored carefully after launch to make sure that Google has started taking notice and tweaks made regularly to increase your online listing in the search engines
I don’t have that much knowledge of websites, does that matter?
It certainly doesn’t. I have a range of experience in dealing with all types of clients from the nervous older generation to leading industry professionals. I can give you as much guidance as you need at every step of the process.
What do you need from me?
Once I get the go-ahead on a web design project, I will let you know anything required at each step. After the planning and preparation stage in which I gather the main purpose of the website and a clear indication of your requirements, I generally require an idea of the site layout, structure, any existing branding, photography and content for the website design. Other details include the domain name to be registered and any email accounts to be set up.
What images can I use on my website?
You are not allowed to use any images found from the internet as these will be covered by copyright laws and there can be legal consequences. You are allowed to use images taken by yourself, images owned by the company and stock photography. I can help you source appropriate images and give you guidance on image usage if required.
I already have a website, can you change it?
I can amend or completely redesign an existing web site. To change a website hosted elsewhere, the only information I require is the FTP details from your hosting company and any platform logins. Should you choose to host your website with TJ Design, I can give you advice and guide you through the moving process.
Will I be able to update the website myself?
If you would like to be able to update your website yourself, let me know and I can choose the most appropriate, easy to use platform for you to use. I also guide you through using the new website and give you training to be able to edit your new website.
Can I sell from my website?
I can normally give you several options depending on the amount of products and your budget, from a simple ecommerce website which takes PayPal payments to a complete ecommerce platform with multiple payment options and advanced functionality.
Will my website be mobile friendly?
Definitely! All websites created by TJ Design are mobile friendly as standard.
The change from Google in 2015 meant that non-responsive websites (websites which are not optimised for phones, tablets and other smaller devices) could see an impact in their listing for the search engines.
Search Engine Optimisation
How do I attract more visitors to my website?
You can attract more visitors to your website by improving the search engine optimisation of your website.
SEO is included in every website designed by myself and I will advise you at every stage of the process to make sure you have plenty of keywords in your website content so that is as search engine friendly as possible.
I can also offer monthly SEO maintenance on your website and social media strategies for maximum visibility and website performance.
