How I work

…with Radio 3 and a cup of coffee, of course!

I work for my clients in two ways:

1. A simple build, all content provided: this is the cheaper, faster option.  My client sends me the content they would like, and I use that to create a website.  The steps are:

      • Please give me a call first: to have a brief chat, particularly so I can let you know my availability
      • PowerPoint: you write all your own content, and send me your final version in PowerPoint (1 slide per page, please, including any links you’d like, and your chosen images)
      • Proposal: Based on your content, I quote for how many days /hours I think the site will take. If my quote is accepted, we agree the date of the build
      • Domain: We either set your domain up together, or use your existing domain name if you have already bought one
      • Build: I use all the content you have sent me to create your website (instantly live)
      • Payment on delivery!

2. Vague idea to finished article: this option costs more, but you would need to do far less. The steps are:

      • Meeting: I meet you for an initial hour (free of charge) to find out what you’d like.  We discuss pages, content, links and images required, as well as the overall nature and aim of your website.  Meetings can take place either in Sloane Square, London (at Café Colbert), or at your office, as you prefer!
      • Proposal: By email, I confirm the outline of the site, and an estimate of how long I think it will take.  If my quote is accepted…
      • Preparation: I write, research, link and finalise all the content and send it back to you for approval (at my hourly rate)
      • Proofing: You can review and approve the content and images which I have prepared for you
      • Domain: We either set your domain up together, or use your existing domain name if you have already bought one
      • Build: I use your approved, finalised content used to create your website (instantly live)
      • Payment for preparation phase would be by weekly invoice; payment for site on delivery

The advantage of setting a specific date for a build is that we both know when I am working on your site – and when it will be done!

Future proofing…

If you would like me to give your site regular updates in the future, I will happily do so, on either:

  • an ad hoc basis: send me whatever you’d like to be added by email whenever it occurs to you, and I will add it (maximum three day turnaround); or,
  • a quarterly basis: and I’ll even send you a reminder a month before your update is due, so that you won’t miss anything out!
