Here’s the deal.
Free! is just that – a free website, with contact form, lightbox, help videos, 1Gb space, domain mapping thrown in (and much much more). Free! is totally DIY.
Plus! Options are … completely optional. You hate DIY but want a new feature, extra space, a different theme or some help, we’ll do it for a flat fee of £24 (or quote you if your requirement is more challenging).
If you are an unfunded project, i.e. you only have voluntary members and no budget, we’ll half the fee (or give us a sensible donation).
But if you are spending £100s perhaps £1000s on printing and distributing leaflets, purchasing paint or fancy banners and buying giveaway free gifts, then £24 X 10 is still really really cheap.
How much to make me a website? £250 for a pretty but basic one, but the more you need (content writing, photography, design) the more it will cost – but remember you don’t need everything at once – in our experience many projects that should only take a week at most are delayed by the pursuit of perfection (which isn’t to say we ain’t perfectionsists – we are).
Also if you already paid £1000s to get your website up and running, chances are you are familiar with the improbably fast and high quality support you got after you paid your money. No? We’ll help you out long after others have spent your money down the pub, but don’t expect to eat the wonderful cake we made!
If you have special requirements that cannot be met by a combination of Free! and Plus! Options, then maybe NonPlus! is for you. NonPlus! gives much more control and independence, but with extra power comes greater responsibility and none of the Free! features!
