Website development service addressing issues, goals, and other requirements, using both code and plugins to implement or repair functionality.
Website Development: How Much?
Your development needs will be discussed and a price will be quoted based on the amount of work and/or complexity. Hourly maintenance is calculated at £25 p/h.
This includes information gathering, website backups. planning, coding, designing and testing.
An initial consultation is free and can be done in person or via Skype.
What Type of Website Do You Have?
I build most websites using WordPress, so working and developing on existing WordPress is preferable. I can take a blended approach with using both free/paid WP plugins as well as some code in the
functions.php file as well as the other files in the WordPress installation.
If, for example, you want to turn your existing website into an eCommerce shop (to sell products and services) I’d recommend something like WooCommerce or Shopify.
WooCommerce is a free WordPress extension that can do much out of the box, but requires a lot of work and testing to get it functioning correctly.
How is Website Development Work Conducted?
I’ll be using a “localhost” such as the WAMP server sandbox to work on a cloned version of your site offline and in safety. No live edits or changes will be made to your website.
Work done in the localhost will be showed to you on a screenshare or private video, and once you, me and other stakeholders are satisfied, the site will be uploaded to a private, secure web server for you to properly examine and stress-test the changes.
User testing to probe for unexpected problems on all different devices and different browsers is one of the most important steps for ensuring whack-a-mole style problems have not developed as a result of website redevelopment work.
