FAQs

Q?

What do your websites cost

A.

The short answer: Our prices depend on so many factors, it’s impossible to say in one sentence. Avoid any web developer who can answer this question without a long talk.

The long answer: To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, give us a quick phone call. We’ll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we’ll be able to give you a ballpark figure. If you’re still interested, we’ll come to your place of business and come up with a firm quote.

If you talk to a web developer who gives you an instant quote, run away! Imagine telling someone you want a car and having them immediately giving you a price for that car. Any fair and honest car salesperson would want to know the make, model and engine type of the car you’re looking to purchase, right? The same goes for building web sites.

Q?

Another company says they can build a web site for us for €300. Why shouldn’t we use them?

A.

We’ve seen those ads on the side of the road, too. Be wary of anyone who says they’ll build you a web site for €300. There’s a possibility they’ll take your money and run. What’s more likely is that they’ll take your money and then build your site with a static template. They’ll probably provide you five pages of text and then slap it into a template and that’s it. You can’t have custom graphic design; you can’t have any interactivity; your site won’t be optimized for search engines and it will look like a €300 site.

Remember, a consultation with Acornmedia Design Studios is always free and we just might be able to prevent you from wasting your money.

Q?

Does Acornmedia provide copywriting services? How about photography?

A.

We provide a full copyrighting service along with both a photography and video editing service

Q?

Do you ask for a deposit before the design process starts?

A.

We do ask for a fully refundable deposit deposit before the design process begins. This covers the initial costs and protects both the client and the designer. The final payment is then only due once the site is complete and the client is fully satisfied with the results

Q?

Does Acornmedia provide web hosting services?

A.

We provide a full web and email hosting service at a small additional charge via one of the major web hosting companies in Ireland.
