We are confident you will love our service, however you do want to leave after the initial 12 month period then we will transfer the site and domain to a place or your choosing.

Because our core ethos is to work in partnership with our clients we do not offer website development for a one off fee. However if you want us to create a website for you then you can become a member and cancel after 12 months if you would like. Any website created could then be transfered to your own management.

Premium domain names are not included directly in our memberships but can still be obtained as a one off add on if required

+ WHAT ONGONG CHANGES TO THE CONTENT ON MY WEBSITE ARE INCLUDED IN MY MEMBERSHIP?
All of our membership plans are personalised so the changes that are inlcuded will depend on your individual website and membership package. As a general rule of thumb once your website is created then ongoing changes to the exisiting content are included & we will always agree with you in advance what is covered by our developers whilst designing and building your website.
We will also provide you with access to make simple content changes such as adding and amending text, images, products, blogs etc by yourself. You will have unlimited access to make these changes.
+ WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED CHANGES TO THE CONTENT ON MY WEBSITE THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED IN MY MEMBERSHIP?
We are happy to help with any changes that are outside of your current membership package. All our memberships have unlimited access to our Knowledge Hub meaning you can discuss your requirements with us in advance to understand the scale of the development and get a quote at no cost.
If you choose to proceed then our preferred option is to simply make a change to your memebership package, this means that you avoid any one off costs and ongoing changes to your new content can be included going forward. However, changes can be made 'on demand' if needed in which case we will quote individually for you.
