Corsham Print

Since the 1980’s we have enjoyed helping businesses

grow with our creative services. We want everyone to

be able to benefit from the very latest ideas and

technology in design, print, web and marketing.

We have launched nettl of Corsham to increase our

product range and expand our online offering.


Yet again Corsham Print stepped up to produce the print

materials for the show. They also helped with aspects of

design and the quality of their work is outstanding. I

commend them at all levels and if you are looking for a

local business, then they are your people.

Throughout many years of association with Corsham Print

we have always found them cooperative, professional,

competitively priced and consistently capable of delivering

on time. When we needed a fresh, contemporary look for

our catalogues, they redesigned every aspect of it. We do

not believe that we could have done better elsewhere.

Let’s find your fast path

A website that you’re proud of and which accurately reflects

your brand is one of the most important aspects of any

business. Research suggests that having a website can

increase turnover by around 45%. Despite this, it is thought

that around two million UK businesses still don’t have one.

We don’t believe ‘one size fits all’. Every business is

different… and so is every website we create.

DID YOU KNOW?

81% of people conduct

research online before

purchasing a product.

This guide will help you

choose whats right for your

business now and how we

could develop it for you in the

future.

Our sites are built to last. They can grow as your business

grows. You don’t want to find your site is redundant next

month just because you need to add a new feature.

This modular approach means we get you online quickly with

our proven paths and then upgrade your site in a structured

way when you’re ready.

It’s useful if you know where you want to go, but you don’t

need to do everything at once. We find it’s best to

continuously develop your site, deploying small changes, as

and when you need them.


Types of websites

The internet is vast, there are billions of websites online, all

competing for some share of peoples online browsing each

day. When you’re starting a new website, it can be

overwhelming to think about all the other websites out there.

To keep things simple we breakdown our sites in four types:

nettl:one - basic website

A basic website is made up of one to five pages, and requires

only very simple functionality. They are ‘brochure style’

websites. In addition to the core pages, they have a contact

and landing page.

Basic websites are great if you’re after a very simple, stripped

back online presence. It is a place to showcase your business,

and receive enquiries. Think of it kind of like a modern day

business card.

A great place to start and we ensure that it is future proof for

further development.

nettl:one upfront costs

Design £200 to £500

Domain

from £4.99 / year

ongoing costs

Hosting

£10 / month

Care package

£0 to £25 / month


nettl:connect - small business website

A small business website is the perfect size for a business that

requires a little more than just a very basic website. These are

also ‘brochure style’, but are far more feature-rich. Such

features may include: integrating social media, a content

management system, google analytics and google maps.

Perhaps you want to have online booking, live appointments

or room reservations? They will also have more pages than a

basic website.

Online bookings Integrated with

your telephone booking system.

Reviews Ask for feedback and

publish reviews.

Small business websites don’t

sell anything directly, but rather

encourage visitors to get in

contact, a lead generation tool

or make a booking with you.

nettl:connect upfront costs

Design £500 to £2000

Domain

from £4.99 / year

ongoing costs

Hosting

£10 / month

Care package

£0 to £55 / month

Reservations

Online reservations synced

with your offline system.

Appointments

Show availability so

customers can book online.


nettl:commerce - e-commerce website

Where people can directly buy products from you. Any

website that includes a shopping cart and a way for people to

provide credit card information to make a purchase falls into

this category.

If you’re setting up a website for your business and plan to

sell your products through the site, then this is the type of

website you need to build.

The cost of ecommerce websites can vary massively. The

price is impacted by the number of items you want to stock,

and the number of varieties of each item that are available. It

will also, of course, depend on the number of additional

features that you want to incorporate. Normally we would

include an order management system, delivery tracking

functionality and a live chat facility, in addition to the features

included in a small business website.

For businesses requiring complex functionality eg. financial

fitness businesses, architects etc. Any business requiring

complex functionality may well find that they fall into the

bespoke price bracket.

Bespoke websites are great for larger companies requiring

more functionality, with a higher number of visitors or with

more information to share.

devised a variety of payment opitions to help you spread the

cost of your investment. Please ask for more details.

only, exclude VAT and are subject to

our terms and conditions. Please ask

Additional Costs

The costs we have already mentioned are based on

you suppling content including, logos, text and

imagery. Here are some additional services and costs

that you should consider:

Brand Design

If you are a new business or don’t have any branding

we can help you create your one for you from a

simple logo design to full brand creation, from £100

Content production

Producing written content is something that you can

do yourself to keep costs down. However, it can be

worth getting us to help. We charge £25 per hour for

content generation.

Imagery

We can source stock images and graphics from your

site from £10 per image

We can also arrange a photographer to collect a bank

SEO / Marketing / Adwords

Let’s say you own a cupcake shop in Bristol. Googling

‘cupcake Bristol’ produces millions of results. So how

do you make sure that your business appears near the

top? A lot of it has to do with how relevant your

business is, how up-to-date the content on your site

is, and how many visitors you get coming in from

other areas, eg. social media. However there are also

some additional steps you can take to make sure

you’re securing the best position possible.

That’s where SEO comes in. SEO stands for Search

Engine Optimisation. It’s the process of making a site

the best that it can be in terms of search engines.

Search engines give preference to sites that load fast

and offer the information that people are searching

for, amongst other things.

We offer SOE packages that ensure you get results

from your online activities, from £200 per month


Web design process

So you have a rough idea of how much your

site might cost, now you want to know how long will

it take?

It should come as no surprise that the answer

will depend on the size and complexity of your

desired site. A nettl:one site could be live within a

week, whereas a bespoke site could take up to six

months. We can give you a better idea at the proposal

stage.

To get a clearer idea of how your project will progress,

it helps to have an idea of the steps involved.

Proposal

After an initial consultation we will provide you with a

detailed proposal for your project, which clearly show

what is included and options availabe to you.

Wire Frame Stucture

Depending on the complexity of your project the next

stage is creating a wire frame structure of the site.

Simple black and white layouts that outline the

specific size and placement of page elements, site

features, and navigation for your website.

Design

Following aproval of the wire frame we will design the

site with your content, using your branding. We will

give you access to the site via an administration link

for you to approve the design.

Testing

Once the design has been approved we will move the

site into a testing phase when the integrity of the site

is tested to ensure all navigation links work correctly.

Launch

Finally the site will be launched on an agreed date,

but this is not the end of our support. We allow for

minor amendments and corrections for 4 weeks after

the launch date to make sure you get exactly want

you want.


Things your should know

To own and operate an effective website there are a few

things you will need to bear in mind.

Domian Names

Your Domain Name is your business’ home on the web, your

online identity. As a website address it’s the gateway for

people to see what you have to offer. It tells people who you

are, where you are, and what you do.

We can register and manage your domain for you or you can

register it yourself and send us the details.

Prices vary depending on how popular your chosen domain

name is, .co.uk domains cost as little as £4.99 per year

whereas .com domains can range from £9.99 upwards.

Hosting

Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called

servers. A web hosting service provider, is a business that

provides the technologies and services needed for the

website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet.

When an internet users wants to view your website, all they

need to do is type your website address or domain into their

browser. Their computer will then connect to the server and

your webpages will be delivered to them through the

browser.

All our sites are hosted on the most advanced Amazon

servers based in the UK.

SSL Certificate

An SSL certificate ensures that the provider is who they claim

to be and also indicates secure connections between

personal devices and websites. SSL certificates are important

for website trust and to help protect customers from

becoming a victim to scammers.

You can see if a site has SSL by looking at the small padlock in

your browser, if it is locked the site is secure.

Maintanance

The worldwide web is constantly changing, software updates,

search engine changes, plug in up dates and legislation to

name a few. Your site needs to be maintained to remain

effective.

We give you the tools and training to do this and also offer

care packages that guarantee your site remains current.
