I genuinely believe that Rugby Web Design offers the very best choice for a small business based in the Midlands.
Price-wise, I sit somewhere between a self-build and the 'national network' model. Longer term, my prices become more competitive as I don't charge ongoing subscriptions for the life of the website.
Before we compare prices, lets take a brief look at other web design options.
Great for a hobby project, but a 'self-build' won’t give a business a professional image.
Most lack the functionality to optimise the website effectively for search engines.
These 'drag n drop' builders generate very poor back-end code, which can lead to serious performance issues or errors.
Can you afford to spend many (frustrating) days away from your core business role?
Some web design companies form part of a national network or franchise model.
Some flood the internet with a website for every town, giving the impression of being local to you, but the reality can be quite different.
You'll be dealing with a sales agent, as the people building the websites are likely to be thousands of miles away.
There will be a whole team of people working on your project, each bringing their own specialisms to the different stages of the project content, design and development.
Granted, you'll get a fantastic website, but the fee will be eye watering.
These companies are really best suited to those requiring specialist website functionality.
Brief: "An 8-page brochure website with content management".
