YOUR CURRENT SITUATION
Do you need a NEW website?
You’ve got to the stage where you need a new website. Either you’re starting a new venture, your business has developed or your competitors are making headway and you need to be at the forefront of your industry.
B. Or are you looking for a website REFRESH?
Is it that your website needs updating, you’ve neglected it or haven’t invested in it for some time now and it doesn’t reflect your business at this present moment and where you are looking to take your business over the next few years.
Working with a local agency
As with all areas of business, it’s beneficial to create and maintain excellent working relationships and there’s no better way to do this than meeting your website designer face to face, before embarking on a project as important as your website.
As a Leicestershire based agency, Little Gem Creative is situated in Market Harborough, only 15 minutes on the train to central Leicester and easily accessible to the Leicester area by car.
Before we begin a project, we like to meet our clients to obtain a good understanding of their business, the people involved and your aims and objectives. We do this to make sure that your website represents who you are, what you do and communicates clearly and effectively to your customers.
The process includes meetings, content gathering and creation and training. We believe that having a real-life relationship with our clients is essential for you to get the very best premium service from us.
What your website says about your business
It’s often the first point of contact a potential customer or client has with your business, so you need to get this right!
Even if you run a successful business and have been established for generations, with solid business relationships with your clients. It’s still vital that you are represented effectively online. When you meet clients for meetings and presentations, you don’t take anything for granted, so this is the same approach we’d advise you to have towards your website and all your brand communications.
What type of website do you need?
We can discuss using a preferred CMS platform or see if you are looking for a bespoke website. Either way, it will be designed and built to current trends and with the latest technologies available. You will end up with an impressive responsive website that is viewed and navigated by potential customers on all devices.
There are various types of website, these include:
WHERE TO START?
Contact Little Gem Creative to help you kick start your website project. Utilise our expert experience throughout the process of the project using us as a design and consultancy resource, so that you efficiently work through the process of getting your website live!
Defining your strategy
This is something we can work on together. By asking you a series of questions, we can find out essential information about your business, industry, the market and competitors which will enable us to present you with a Defined Marketing Strategy for your website and online presence. This will be a simple activity we can cover in a single meeting with you, at a set cost. We believe this is essential to make sure that you get the website your business needs to engage with new customers effectively.
Creating a project brief
We will ask you the right questions and gather information from you, that will help us to create a project brief together. Once agreed, the expectations are set and everyone knows what they are going to get at the end of the project.
Set a budget – Dictate the price!
We can of course provide you with a set price for a set amount of work, but we find that by the client dictating a budget, you are comfortable in knowing that costs won’t spiral and you are in control of the pace and scalability of your website. After all, websites are modular, which means you can set a budget for the initial build and then add to it when you are ready.
As well as the website design, build and consultancy, you will need to consider additional costs. These include:
Gathering and generating content
Your website is only as good as its content. Therefore, we start out by gathering the content you have readily available, utilising the skills you already have to hand, as long as they are suited to the project, before we advise that you take on our additional creative services.
If required, our core services include Photography, Video and Copywriting, Social Media and SEO, which are often needed to populate your website.
If you are ready to start your website project, then simply contact Little Gem Creative to arrange our first meeting! We look forward to hearing form you.
