Why have a website?

There are many reasons for having a website. Firstly, it is one of the quickest ways for people to find information about a company or product without having to actually speak to someone. Imagine people being able to access information about the products and services your company offers but rather than just 9:00am Ė 5:30pm they can all the time 7 days a week 365 days a year. Thatís what the Internet can give you.

A website allows you to promote yourself to a larger audience than you could traditionally target. It will allow you to display more of your products and services to current and potential clients than you would normally be able to reach through print.

It will allow you to maintain your brochure online and display your goods and services in a live and interactive medium. This has the advantage over a printed brochure because your website will be cheaper to maintain and is updateable, which is useful for promotions and special offers. Your printed adverts can be referenced to your website address where special offers or deals can be viewed in greater detail.

What kind of websites can we create for you?

We create websites either from scratch (bespoke design) or by using a pre-made design of your choice to meet your requirements and budget. There is a large and varied range, which can be tailored to your own specification. Please Click here to view all our designs

To customise or create bespoke designs, we currently use programs such as the Macromedia MX Studio, which comprises of Dreamweaver, MX for HTML sites, Flash MX, for Flash based interactive sites and Firework MX, for menuís and other navigational objects to create our websites mixed with those Adobe Photoshop 7 for other graphical needs. This gives us the cutting edge of technology and software to create pretty much anything you or your company desires, whether thatís animations, scrolling text, interactive navigation systems or just a simple static HTML website.

We also have a great database developer capable of creating any database solution needed whether its website or system based.

How much will my website cost?

The cost of a website varies depending on your needs. Generally, other website companies charge on a per page basis with discounted rates if a high number of pages are needed but we believe that this can be unfair and not the way forward. We price all our websites individually on customer wants and needs. This is beneficial to you because we will not add on extra pages that wonít necessarily add to the impact you are looking for. We also have a policy in place, that if you find a cheaper quote anywhere else we will do our best to match it, providing you send us a copy of the quote outlining what work is included. We aim to match these wherever possible because your business is important to us. We also provide Flash movies or banner advertisements but these are usually quoted at an additional cost unless otherwise stated. If you already have a site and want to give it a new look we price this at an hourly rate. This is because all the text and images are in a computerised format and can be easily manipulated into your new design.

Included within the cost of a new website:

      • Scanning your supplied images (up to A4)*
      • Inputting the prepared text (either on disk or on typed A4 pages clearly labelled)*
      • Testing Your Site
      • Uploading to your host web space
      • Extra testing and user acceptance

Additional items can be added to your site but at extra cost for these please contact us.

* We can prepare your material and source your pictures for your website from your brochure or other printed material but this is charged at an additional rate.

For a fee we will use the latest e-commerce software to design your shop, provide a secure server to store your online shop and register you for either a net bank or other online credit card facility to take payments for your goods. You will have the opportunity to update your own product list with new items or sale promotions if required or why not save the bother and let us update it for you?

We have various solutions on offer from a simple cost effective package using Paypal to a custom built package made for your needs.

How can I keep the website up to date?

Keeping your website up to date is almost as important as having a website on the Internet. If people visit your site for the first time and then visit it again a few months later and the information is exactly the same the chances are your information or products will be out of date. This will prove frustrating and they may choose a competitor instead. This is why it is important to update your site as often as you can. Even if its only your main home page once every few months.

DCS provide a variety of solutions for updating your website ranging from us doing it for you or we can provide a web based option where updating your site is as easy as sending an email or writing a letter on a word processing program such as Microsoft Word.

What Happens if i want DCS to design my website?

If you like what you have read so far the next step is to contact us to discuss in detail the requirements for your site. We will then collate all the information and produce an in depth quote. It is then for you to confirm your needs have been met and once you have signed and returned the contract and payment we will begin construction of your site.
