The credit crunch is hitting companies hard right now. The last thing a business wants to do is spend potentially thousands of pounds on a new website. But it really is vital, especially now, to have a sharp online presence to give maximum impact and stay ahead of your competitors.
Nantwich, Cheshire (PRWEB) February 17, 2009
Big Dot Media Limited already provides its services free of charge to non-profit organisations. Now they have extended this services to all companies based in Cheshire or Staffordshire.
Steve McGrath, Managing Director of Big Dot Media, says "The credit crunch is hitting companies hard right now. The last thing a business wants to do is spend potentially thousands of pounds on a new website. But it really is vital, especially now, to have a sharp online presence to give maximum impact and stay ahead of your competitors."
McGrath continues "We genuinely wanted to find a way to help businesses through these difficult times, so now we are offering website design services for free to companies based in Cheshire and Staffordshire- this includes meeting the client, obtaining a design brief, creating numerous draft concepts, including content management systems if necessary, and tweaking the design until we create a design exactly as the client envisioned."
Big Dot Media are offering the website service FREE, so the only charge they pass on is the hosting of the website Big Dot Media charges just £25 a month (or £250 for the year if paid upfront) for hosting the website once it's ready to go live. It's fairly normal practice for website design companies to be charging anywhere from £1,000 to £10,000 upwards for a website, so this really is a great offer.
It is a stipulation of the free site design service that clients take out hosting with Big Dot Media, and a contract will be in place agreeing to this. This makes sure Big Dot Meda cover their costs and it also gives them a chance to create a lasting relationship with clients - something they are well known for and proud of. Big Dot Media Limited is not just a website design company after all. They deal in all kinds of online and offline media, including stationery design and print, brochure design and print, mail shots, CD presentations, brand awareness and so much more. They hope to be able to help clients with other areas of their business in the future should the need arise, thus creating more of a long lasting business relationship.
Is there a catch?
McGrath says no, but he does say, "We will not offer our services to any companies we consider to incite hatred, violence or racism, or if adult content is involved. We reserve the right to decline our services to anybody we consider unethical. We are an extremely ethically aware company. Any company with the need for complex database work may be subject to a minimal cost-covering fee. This will be discussed and agreed upon prior to commencement of the project."
