Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Web Development cost?

Unfortunately, we don't have set project prices. Every brief we work on has different requirements which alters the spec of the job. So, once we've received the brief - we can give you an indication of the cost and timescale.

We have a limited budget, will you still work with us?

We work with a range of clients - from start-up brands through to large global organisations such as the NHS and Blackberry. Our mindset is that we want to work with clients of the same vision. If you want to improve your brand online, and understand the way we work - and the discussions are of mutual understanding - then we want to work with you.

In terms of budget, the easiest way to find out if a project is possible... is to let us know what your budget is. That way, if we know the budget, we can advise the best way of spending your money. We wrote this article about the importance of a website budget a while back that is still relevant.

Why are you so expensive?

At Shape we don’t use any templates when developing your website, meaning it takes a lot of time to build each and every site we do from scratch. This ensures that your site is tailored to your brief and specific needs. If you have a smaller budget, we can advise you on the best way to use it. Head to our project planner to get started today.

How long does it take to build a website?

It all depends on the size of your project and the requirements of your brief. Some functionalities can take longer to develop, so it's best to let us know so we can give you more accurate timescales. Generally speaking, we can get a website live from start to finish in 4 weeks for smaller projects, larger projects take longer.

What if I don’t like the website?

We don’t get that very often but if we do, that’s fine! If you don’t like the design or build of your website tell us what you dislike and we’ll change it. It is our aim to make sure you're happy with your site, so let us know and we will make amends until you're happy! Check out our testimonials to hear from our clients.
