Why use an expert like Construction Websites?
Unlike your average website designer, We have been working with companies in all aspects of the construction industry for over 21 years. Many of the website designers out there have just been building websites for a few years and don’t really know what is required to make your website a success. Common mistakes include using free web builders and services like yell to build your website, as well as using free themes and poorly coded themes for professional websites.
Knowing the exact price
Unlike so many other web design agencies we provide a set price & time frame for your website right from the start. That way you have complete peace of mind knowing what your website is going to cost, and when it will be completed and ready. People often get caught out with an ever escalating bill from other web designers because they often give you an estimated price based on their hourly rate and an estimated number of hours that it might take to build your website. Then it usually turns out that the project takes longer than they expected, and you are paying an hourly rate with no actual end in sight.
We are different, we do not have any reason to want to drag out the project for as long as possible, in fact it is in our interest to complete within the timeframe that we have given you. Our reputation means everything to us and so we do not have any hidden costs or ongoing charges that you didn’t anticipate. Each customer will be given a quote for the website, and told how long it will take to complete. You will have the option to choose a maintenance package and an optimisation package if you wish, or you can simply pay for the website and maintain and update it yourself. The only ongoing costs in this case are your domain name renewal, which costs an average of £10 per year depending on who you used to register the domain name, and your hosting account, which costs an average of £60 a year depending on who you are using to host your website.
Your website absolutely needs to be fully mobile and tablet compatible and 100% responsive. This is vital for several reasons, firstly because most of your customers will probably use their mobile phone or a tablet like an iPad to look up your website. If your website wasn’t designed to work on these properly, then they will get frustrated and will quickly abandon your website and go looking for your competitors.
It isn’t only prospective customers who are going to take an interest in whether or not your website is mobile compatible. Google pays particular interest and if it isn’t properly built and fully mobile and tablet compatible, they wont show it to those who are searching using a mobile device.
You might be thinking that you can find your own website using your tablet or mobile when you search Google, and you know that it isn’t a responsive website and it wasn’t built for miles, so how comes you can find it using a mobile then, if that is that case?
The answer is simple, Google knows it is your website, at least they know that it is a website that you have visited plenty of times before. So they show it to you because they can read the cookies embedded in your internet history. But your customer who has never visited your website before and is just searching for a professional on Google using their mobile, is never going to find your website unless it is properly mobile compatible and is indexed properly in Google.
What if I need to update my website?
You will have 2 options, you can login to the website and edit the text and add images yourself. Or you can get us to do it for you.
To make simple small changes to the text on the website yourself will require some basic technical abilities, but it really isn’t very difficult at all and most people can learn to do it in a couple of minutes. We will build your website with the ability for you to login and make small changes yourself. It will be up to you to decide if you want to or if you prefer to have an expert make the changes for you. Larger changes will require an expert and we will need to make these for you.
If like many busy professionals you simply don’t have the time, or you prefer to have the website updated by a professional we offer maintenance packages for ongoing changes, or we offer one off updates as and when you need them for a small fee .
