Full Website Builds
We build feature-packed sites.
As official Wix Legend Partners (the highest level) we try to stay as native to Wix as possible, in terms of apps and features they provide. We do so as we feel assured that Wix will ensure these apps continue to work.
We specialise in Wix Apps including their blog, bookings, events, stores, pricing plans (subscriptions) and online programs (courses) apps. This means your site can have a range of revenue-generating functions and ways of connecting with your audience. But - without the price tag!
Whether you are wanting to book participants into a class, blog to your community, host tutorials and videos, sell online or run an online course - we can take care of it.
All our sites have a dedicated mobile friendly view, are tested on a range of browsers and devices and have back-end functions to help you run your business. They also have an in-built CRM so you can manage and nurture your contacts.
We've used a range of website builders as well as Wordpress but for us Wix is a good all rounder (and has won awards to that effect!).
It's easy for our clients to use once built, there's no signs that Wix is disappearing anytime soon (their financial performance continues to impress!) and it offers great value for money. Importantly, for us as website designers, it's enjoyable and flexible to build within and so we're not trapped to particular themes.
As Wix Legend Partners, ESME Creative receive priority support from Wix, a dedicated account manager, custom solutions, early access to updates and exclusive training.
How much will my website cost?
There isn't a fixed amount that a website will cost - all websites are different in terms of number of pages, features and levels of any design and consultancy input. However, we've built enough to be able to provide you with an average.
1-3 page simple brochure site including domain name and hosting for one year = approx £700
Online store with 1-3 pages and 3 products (capacity for more and we'll show you how) including hosting plan and domain name, plus 1-hour coaching = approx £850
Project site showcasing a university, charity or publicly funded project outlining the project, featuring options to interact (forms, links to surveys) and outlining contact details. Strong attention to accessibility, security and data protection = approx £1200 (exc domain and hosting plan).
We understand that websites can be a significant outlay and may be able to find an alternative way of pricing our sites (for instance leaving you to pay the Wix hosting plan monthly whilst we take care of design only).
For website work under £100 we take full payment upfront. For website work over £100 we take 50% of the balance on commission and 50% on completion and before handover.

Research: Market and SEO research to better inform your site development.
