The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary. Though my website projects generally start in the £5,000* range for brochure business websites and range upward depending on client’s unique needs.
What your website will cost will depend, to a great extent, on what you want (number of pages required, functions on the website, content management systems) – as every website is unique, the time involved in one can vary considerably compared to another. To be able to give you a rough estimate as to how much the project will cost, first you’ll need to complete the form here (takes less than 5 minutes).
Hint: The more budget you can put aside for your website project, the better will be the final product.
I DO NOT charge an hourly rate, I only charge a flat rate per project.
Large projects: The project starts with a 50% deposit. After design sign off and before I move into programming, I collect 25%. Once I have completed and fulfilled my scope, the final 25% is collected and your website is then scheduled for launch.
Smaller projects: I request 100% payment upfront.
This largely depends on what is involved, as well as how soon you, as the client, are able provide me with the essential documents, such as copy and pictures. A simple brochure site can be up and running in 6 or 7 weeks. More complex projects can take longer. When I know your exact requirements, I will send you a contract with a realistic end date. I know that project deadlines are very important : I will always do my utmost to meet them.
Yes. All of the websites I build are fully responsive: I build mobile friendly and responsive websites that ensure optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices including iPhones and iPads. Your site will be available on all devices.
Absolutely! In fact, I encourage it. I build your website on my development server, and provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and monitor the progress of your site. During this phase, I encourage your feedback if something isn’t quite the way you envisioned it or if you’ve changed your mind. Once your site is ready and you have provided your approval, I release it live on your server.
Yes. By using the internet, email and the telephone, I can communicate effectively with clients in any location.
I build all of my websites on the open-source Content Management System (CMS) platform called WordPress.
Yes. Many of my design projects are undertaken for large corporations who plan product and company launches months, even years, in advance. In order to work on their projects, Erik Reart may need access to proprietary information which my clients wish to keep as trade secrets. Accordingly, when I’m asked, I’m more than happy to sign client-supplied non-disclosure agreements or similar contracts.
A Content Management System (CMS) gives you complete control over your website, by allowing you to add or change any content on your website – pages, images, news, products descriptions and prices, the list is endless.
YES! Everything that I build will be 100% owned by you. Most of my clients stay with me for the life of the website. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, I will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and I want you to take it wherever you go.

Absolutely not. I have a strict Clip Art Free Zone policy since day one. I also don’t use ‘Ready-Made’ logos, recycled logos (rejects from previous design projects) or DIY logo generator software. All my logos are built lovingly, by hand, from the ground up.
Yes. In additional to vector** based files, I also supply pixel based formats (.JPG files & .PNG files) which can be used on your website, or in most desktop office software.
** Only available in Full Packages

Of course, however I’m unable to offer technical support, maintenance or updates for websites that I don’t host. The Data Protection Act leaves me unable to manage any aspect of your hosting account if it is in your or your companies name as your individual hosting company will not be able to speak with me to resolve any issues.
