Static Websites

Don’t want to have to edit your site? Then you may need a non-editable website, also known as a static website.

Whilst pro­fes­sional design or affordable website packages are best for most startups and small busi­nesses, some don’t need that flex­ib­ility. Learning to use a Content Management System (CMS) just to get some basic inform­ation online can seem like a hassle, too.

So if your business doesn’t change much, and you don’t expect search engines to be a key traffic source, you may prefer a static site.

Why Choose A Static Website?

Small busi­nesses often choose static web­sites for the wrong reasons. So let’s be clear on a few things:

  • Static web­sites are not cheaper or easier to build than editable ones
  • Customers and search engines prefer sites that are kept up to date
  • Editable sites can support more powerful features
  • I can help with edits on either type of site

Still, if you really don’t plan to to update your site much, these static website packages can be a little cheaper to set up, simply because they don’t require any trainng in how to edit them. Otherwise, choose pro­fes­sional design to max­imise flex­ib­ility, or an affordable website package for your best options on a limited budget.

The Basic Static Site Package

Static sites tend to be “bro­chure” sites, as they can’t easily support things like blogs or eco­m­merce. So the static sites I build all include:
  • Up to 5 pages1
  • Mobile-friendly “responsive” design
  • Lead Capture/Contact form
  • Stock images
  • Legal com­pliance help2
  • Social Media Marketing tools & guides
  • Site stats setup (optional)
  • Basic SEO features
  • SSL security
  • Basic Hosting
  • Domain3

1 Base package — extra pages from £150 each
2 FREE integ­ration of recom­mended legal solu­tions
3 .com/.org/.co.uk (optional)

Most sites have Home, About and Contact pages, plus one page for each of the main products or ser­vices on offer. So to keep things simple, I offer a basic package cov­ering up to five pages. If you need more, we can build up from there.
