If you need some help in writing this text, please specify below and we can include a portion of the overall budget towards employing the help of a copywriter who is skilled in writing copy specifically for websites. *
SEO relates to search engine optimisation - the copy/ text that you supply should be written in such a way that helps your website rank better in google organic searches. This is achieved by writing unique copy for your business or product by including key words and locations that relate to your business. (You should never cut and paste text/copy from other websites as google will delist or de-rank you for this)

Having a Strategic Marketing Plan is critical if a business is having difficulty marketing their business or needs help with direction on marketing, budgeting and planning for the business. If the answer is yes to the above, we would then relay our strategic marketing partner to you directly and once they have discussed your requirements with you we can include their fees in your quote.  
Do you understand that your new website will require ongoing maintenance to keep your website functioning and running optimally? *
Website maintenance is critical to ensure your website functions correctly and ensures all of the plug-ins and hardware on your website is kept up to date. Please note, it is not mandatory to carry out the maintenance with Designwest this can be done directly with any developer of your choice but please understand that non-maintenance of your website will most likely lead to either your website being hacked, inability of your site to perform its functions or as in some cases being taken offline by the hosting company because it poses a security risk to other websites on the server. It can also lead to Google delisting or de-ranking the site because infected sites are flagged by Google.
Please give us an overview of your overall wishes for the new website and what you hope it will achieve for your business. *
Have you any other questions or queries you would like us to answer in relation to your website?
