Whistlefield Associates offers website design and promotion services to customers all over England and Wales. We can arrange complete design, build and hosting packages or upgrades to an existing site.
We specialise in the design of quality, affordable websites focussed on the needs of clients. If you are thinking of establishing an online presence, and if you are looking for a friendly and expert website design service — we are here to help.
Why have a website and internet presence?
Your website should be an integral part of your business development plan and it is important to discuss this with your web site designer from the outset. In addition you need to agree how updates and changes will be made to your web site. For a few organisations changes may be almost constant but even a static web site should be reviewed every month or so. Any required updates can either be on a pay as you go basis or can be the subject of an annual contract.
An alternative is that a member of your team can be trained to undertake content management of the site. Again this is most easily achieved if taken into consideration at the design stage of the web site.
Many web-sites are graphically exciting but are not easily "read" by search engines (e.g. Google, Yahoo and Alta Vista). Though it may seem perverse – it is usually more important to have you site "search engine friendly" rather than full of glitzy movement and graphics, particularly if your marketing budget is modest.

How much will it cost?
Web sites can cost many thousands of pounds but most need not be more than a few hundred. A simple three page brochure site will cost from around £300. Additional pages start at £90.
Content Managed Sites (ideal for DIY maintenance) cost more to set up but additional pages are usually less expensive. They are definitely worth it if you have five or more pages and expect to make frequent changes to the site content.
Secure E-commerce sites (through which clients can purchase and pay for products) are more complex and start at £800.
