Finding the right website agency is hard, so we've created this page to help you decide if Bigfork are right for you.
Any questions? Feel free to get in touch, we're always happy to help.
What websites do you design?
We design custom websites where we’re involved from discovery through to design and development, though are happy to support you with any of these elements. We only work with B2B and public sector clients, and only where we think our expertise can create value for you.
If you have a website that needs looking after, we're happy to take a look.
What budget sizes do you work with?
We provide 2 or 3 budget options when we quote for a new B2B website. Below are some examples.
£10-15k is a 5-10 page website (+ blog) with no special integrations, custom functionality, or complex animations.
£15-£25k will have 10-50 pages, more complex design including interactions and effects, bespoke functionality, and simple integrations.
£25-40k is for a 50+ page site with user testing, complex integrations or complex custom functionality.
For a maintenance contract, from £1,800 / month.
How long does a website take?
Anything from 12 weeks is realistic, though it depends massively on the project scope. If you have a specific launch date we'll create a time plan to get you over the line.
How do I brief you?
We've a website briefing template to get you going. Even if you don't choose to work with us, a great brief means you should get like-for-like proposals and be able to make an informed decision.
What comes after the brief?
If we think the project is a good fit for us, we'll put together a proposal to present in person or over a video call. We don't send any files until we've presented, we want to know you're serious, and any worthwhile partnership starts with a proper conversation.
How would you build our website?
Everything we do is from scratch, we don't do "off-the-shelf" nor do we rely on plugins to do our job. We typically build with Silverstripe CMS, WordPress, or Statamic, and can suggest which might work best for your project.
Do you provide ongoing website support and maintenance?
Absolutely! We understand your website is important and you can rely on us to make sure your website is free of bugs and quickly fix any issues. And if you need any new improvements to your website, just get in touch.
What is your process for creating websites?
Our focus is on quality and our process is proven to deliver that. You'll get an in depth discovery workshop, a bucket load of planning, user tested design concepts, content that works, custom development and lots, lots more. Its a process that includes you at every step and has been built on many years of experience.
Will we own the website?
Yes. Once the website is signed off, live and paid for, it's yours. There are no hidden clauses or nasty surprises. You are free to continue working with us, take it in house or appoint someone else. All of our websites are custom builds, but they are built on open source CMS platforms such as Wordpress and Silverstripe. Which means most experienced developers will be able to work on them.
Are you the right size agency for us?
We are small but mighty! Our clients range from global corporates to SMEs with websites of all sizes. If we don't think we're the right people for the job or we can't deliver what you need, then we'll tell you. Apart from our core team, we also have a network of freelance specialists and partner agencies who we use and recommend when needed.
