I started developing websites with one for my own practice some years ago. Having been a practising veterinary surgeon I have personal knowledge of the field and understand the requirements of these projects. I am able to provide a good deal of 'generic' content which is an excellent starting point for individual practices to amend or re-write to their own requirements.
I have also developed sites for a number of businesses and smaller organisations using compliant HTML5/CSS standards.
Media queries are used to provide a responsive (RWD) viewing experience across different devices and to optimise mobile display. Check this website on your mobile to see the result.
I have a good understanding of optimisation (SEO) for recognition in Google and other search engine listings.
The development site is hosted on my own server so that all parties are able to see the work in progress and discuss the project as it moves forward.
A professionally designed logo incorporating the preferred colour scheme will usually be a starting point for the design process. Good quality digital images will be needed to provide an interesting and informative user experience.
A domain name will need to be registered and web hosting arranged. Typical charges for hosting may be from £30.00 to £70.00 per annum for smaller sites.
My charge for veterinary practice sites will be from £600 depending on the complexity of the website, number of pages and time taken for development.
Site maintenance, routine tweaks and updates are included for 3 months after the site is launched. More major work and amendments are charged at an hourly rate for time employed. Hosting is charged separately as above.
Once the website is launched those with some familiarity with HTML code may manage the site independently through the control panel or by FTP upload. (CuteFTP is popular)
More usually I maintain the website as required charging an hourly rate for time employed.
Smaller or larger sites are charged according to complexity and time employed in development.
