Nothing is final at this stage, so we can change layouts, colours and fonts.


Once you are happy for the site to go live, we make sure that all the behind the scenes work is complete. 

We make sure the site has all the data the search engines need, we then submit your new website to all the major search engines for indexing.

We then arrange a training session to show you how to maintain the website.
