Website Design Cost – When you build a custom designed website there are minor annual costs such as Website Hosting (150), One Email Account (50), Domain Name Registration (40) and an SSL Certificate (100), total 340. These are some third party costs that relate to the design and development of a website. Before you even get into the development and website design cost!
At Digital Sales we have Web Servers in Ireland, Britain and the US, servers that need to be maintained, supported and secure to ensure that our clients websites stay free of Malware, Viruses and have a 99.99% up-time. So, before we speak about website design cost, lets look at the ‘Value’ that ‘Digital Sales’ offers for a start off website. Lets take a look at www.CombinedServices.ie which was just launched (October 2018) and see what they achieved from a consultancy, creative development, digital sales and lead generation perspective.
The company name was DOR Electrical Engineering, however the company provided not just Electrical services, but Heating and Maintenance services. So, we advised a company re-brand to DOR Combined Services which encapsulated all of DOR’s services and also the domain name www.CombinedServices.ie was available to buy.
The logo had to be redesign and the process was:
The website Homepage was built with as much Social Proofing as possible, working with high end brands, company accreditation’s, breath of locations covered by the company and Testimonials. And a Call to Action (CTA) was built into each page within the site.
As you can see the website is well designed and portrays an image of professionalism. The site is built in HTML 5 and php which provides ultimate design and coding flexibility and security against the weaknesses of Content Management Systems. The page download speed for the website on Desktop is 83%, which can be difficult to achieve using a CMS or Template Designs.
Strategic Keywords were selected for each page and best practice on-page SEO was applied to each page. Page content was written with keyword repetition and page layout agreed.
Extremely important for good Click Through Rates and often ignored, see this link for more information. DOR Combing Services went with:
‘DOR Combined Services for all your Electrical | Maintenance | Servicing needs (Industrial, Commercial & Domestic) – Complimentary quotation and assessment – www.CombinedServices.ie’
All Social Media platforms were established for DOR Combined Services and embedded into the website footer and Contact Us page:
