If you are planning a new website or website redesign shortly
it's a good idea to start gathering the website material (text, photos
, video, user manuals etc) that you will need as it can take a while

suppliers to send you material. We're really good at that kind of
work so we can go through it with you if you'd prefer.
It's a good idea to get the best photos possible of your
products, machinery, staff or whatever else you need photographed.
Blurry photos, small photos or photos taken in bad
light don't improve once they get to
the website so make sure you have good photos from the start.
A 2 hour photo
shoot with a good photographer is a lot more
affordable now than it used to be

give them a call.
If you have already registered a website name, that will save you time
as you will need your domain name well before the point where
the new website goes live.
Make sure you have the contact details of the company you registered it with.

select and register one yourself if you'd prefer.
While we're discussing your website design, material and content
management we will also discuss your website marketing plans.
It is well known that new visitors won't arrive on your new
website as frequently as you would like but there are numerous
ways of attracting them in - and we can go through those
marketing channels with you.
