Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to some of the common questions I receive from prospective clients.

I need a quote / how much do you charge?

To provide you with an accurate quote I need to know about your business, your goals and your expectations. Filling in my project enquiry form provides me with the information I need to get started.

Why don't you have a phone number on your site?

I direct all new project enquiries through my enquiry form where I ask 5 short questions.

The questions are designed to get key information about your business, find out the reasons behind the project, and help you to consolidate your thoughts. It gives me an excellent foundation to follow up with a call or email to arrange a meeting.

My mobile number and address are available to all of my clients.

Do you work with Wordpress?

No I work with Craft CMS and recommend it to all of my clients. Craft is more secure, more flexible and provides a much better publishing experience than Wordpress. It carries a small one-off licensing fee which I build into my costs.

On the other hand Wordpress is free, has a large community, and has countless pre-made templates and add-ons available. It’s a great solution if you want to get a basic site up and running quickly - however my focus has always been on quality and flexibility, for which Craft is unrivalled.

How do you handle payments?

If we choose to move forward and work together I'll provide a contract which will break everything down, but as a general rule I require a 50% deposit up front and 50% on completion.
