Website Pages, Text Content & Features
How many pages are included?
9 pages are included as standard, which are:
- Latest Properties (contains default property powering)
- Properties For Sale (contains default property powering)
- Properties To Let (contains default property powering)
- Our Services
- About Us
- Request a Valuation (contains default form)
- Register With Us (contains default form)
- Contact Us
*does not include sub pages via a drop down.
Can I change any of the pages?
Yes, if you would like to remove a page and replace it with another of equal content then we can do that for you.
For example instead of ‘Properties To Let’ you might want ‘Commercial Property’. Or instead of ‘About Us’ you may prefer ‘Mortgages’. However, it must be a ‘like for like’ page or it would be classed as an extra page and subject to a charge to create.
Can I add extra pages?
Yes, we can add extra pages to the website if the standard 9 are not enough and they will adopt the same content layout as per the theme you have chosen.
They will incur an extra hourly charge to setup and further design time will need to be allocated. This could extend the build time of the website so please keep this in mind.
Additional pages over 9 are charged at an hourly rate of £60+vat, with a minimum of an hours charge. A quote will be provided for any extra pages once we have received all written content, or unless otherwise agreed.
We recommend no more than 15 pages in total to keep the website and build time sensible.
How much text content can I display?
The ‘Content Guide’ we send out upon project start will confirm the ideal text content required for your chosen theme. But as a rough guide we tend to recommend no more than around 1 side of A4 text per page.
However, on certain areas of the website such as the home page, there are restrictions on the amount of text. This is to ensure the design of the website continues to look its best and how it was intended to display. Text quantity for such areas is outlined in our content guides for each theme.
Can I have more ‘Call to Actions’ on the home page?
As defined below:
R1 – x3 as standard (1x more available on request*)
R2 – Unlimited*
R3 – x4 as standard (more available on request*)
R4 – None included
R5 – 3x as standard (more available on request*)
R6 – 2x as standard (1x more available on request*)
R7 – 4x as standard (more available on request*)
R8 – 6x as standard
R9 – 4x as standard (more available on request*)
R10 – 6x as standard (more available on request*)
R11 – x3 as standard (more available on request*)
R12 – 6x as standard (more available on request*)
* extra ‘call to actions’ beyond the standard quota are subject to an additional charge.
Can I have a blog feature?
We have an integrated blog feature for a one off setup fee of £80+vat. The feature will allow you to add/edit/delete blog posts and upload images via a front-end editor access. Login details for this page are provided after website sign off.
The editor will also allow you to apply a meta description to each post to benefit seo. If you are interested in having a blog page on the website we can provide a link to a sample blog page.
Can I update the text content myself?
Once the website has been signed off we can provide front-end editor access to the website which will allow you to edit the main text area of each page. However, there are some areas of the website you will not be able to update, in which case we will need to apply them for you.
It’s also worth noting that depending on the layout of text on some pages, especially any with custom layouts, they could contain HTML code i.e. where multiple columns of text appear or tabled data. Not being familiar with how to edit HTML code could cause problems when certain tags are removed by mistake. So for this reason it’s often easier and safer to simply direct any simple text changes over to the Design team instead.
We can confirm more on any potential editing problems once the website is constructed and then you can decide.
Can you apply changes after sign off/go live?
The Design team will respond to all inbound communication in the order it is received. We aim to reply within 1-2 working days, however this can fluctuate during busy times.
Minor text changes which are quick to apply, such as changing an address, telephone number or a single paragraph of text will be applied by us at a convenient time, without charge, whilst within contract. We aim to apply small non-chargeable changes within 7 working days of being received, however this can fluctuate during busy times.
Changes which are more lengthy to apply such as logo/branding changes, restyling, extra pages, coding, multiple staff or image changes etc will incur a charge to apply based on our standard hourly rate of £60+vat, minimum of an hours charge.
The Design team will always review and advise if a charge applies to any requested changes before proceeding with the work, so that you have a choice as to whether to proceed or revise your request. We aim to apply chargeable changes within 15 days of the signed order-confirmation being received, however this can fluctuate during busy times.
Where any website changes or additions require completion by a particular deadline please provide advance warning and final supporting content at least 3 weeks prior to ensure it can be factored in around other projects.
Can I have a Live Chat Feature?
If you would like to integrate a live chat feature in to your new website we can likely accommodate this. You will need to source a provider for your live chat service and provide us with some sample code, allowing us to test it in the website first before you subscribe. We have many customers who use such features successfully.
Can I use an Instant Valuation Tool?
Yes! Subscribe to our Instant Valuation tool for full integration into your new website, to generate more leads and increase revenue.
Contact our Customer Services team on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you would instead prefer to use a 3rd party provider for your instant valuation tool then this is something we can likely integrate into your website. Simply email the supplied code to our Design team and they will confirm this for you, and add to your website *subject to charge.
Can I add a privacy or complaints statement to my website?
Can I display my ‘client money protection’ certificate?
We can link to your certificate as a .pdf file either from the website footer or alongside relevant text on the Services page. Please supply us with the certificate in a .pdf format.
