Cost effective websites built to your specifications
When you first start off in business, everyone wants to grab some money off you. Many companies and individuals will promise and try to convince you that by investing hundreds (mostly thousands) of pounds in their advertising campaign, that your business will ultimately be successful. WRONG - your business will only be successful depending on how you are, what you offer and a host of other criteria.
Comparing Prices - A monthly magazine or a 24/7 website
When you think about a website you immediately think this might cost me a lot of money. But with a 123 Simples website you will be pleasantly surprised how our charges measure up to traditional forms of advertising, such as magazines and mailshots.
A leading magazine advertising charges
We looked at a local Waterlooville Magazine Publisher and Distributor. They offer various advertising options, and in order to make a fair comparison on value for money and prices, we looked at different advertising campaigns available. The cheapest option available online was choosing an eight of a page, with a tie in of 1 year, a monthly distribution (depending on which area of magazine you went in) that ranged from 3000 magazines per month up to 14,750 - which would cost you per year £240.00 PLUS Vat.
An eight of a page by the way measured 46mm x 64mm - that is less than a normal business card size! A full page in this case was 191mm x 134mm - or in other words approximately the size of a A5 piece of paper.

A 123 Simples website is a little larger than a A5 piece of paper. It is many pages usually and the page size is governed by a typical computer monitor or screen. A website has no limit to the amount of people that can view it. Unlike a traditional magazine, it cannot be thrown into the recycling bin. It can evolve, grow and adapt to the needs of the customer. Best of all - pound for pound, it is the cheapest and most cost effective form of advertising any business could have.

Your requirements for a website
Before you rush into having your own website, you need to really understand what kind of website you want, and how much money you are willing to invest in having your own website.
If you are just looking for a really basic website
If you are only looking for a really basic website, and are not looking for anything special, then you have a few options available. For example, you can just go onto Google Search and type in "cheap web design" and you can find lots of websites offering you unbelievable deals starting from just £49.00 for a one page website design.
Professional web design
If on the other hand, you are looking for a website that compliments your business, pushes work your way, and helps your business grow, then you will need to look at choosing a web design company that is going to look after you, and help you.
Our prices for websites are very competitive and offer real value for money. Okay they may not be £49.00 for a website, but then they are reasonably priced, and offer start up and new businesses affordable web design. Our web design packages start from just £249.00 and when you maybe compare this to a magazine advertisement, then you begin to realise that a website is far more cost effective:
