“I was really impressed with how well things ran on this project. The KIJO team was able to translate our ask into a reality with very little intervention from us, and it was basically perfect on the first round. I also appreciated how various members of the team offered us additional help/feedback outside of the scope of the project!”

Frequently Asked Questions

01
How much will developing a website cost?

The scope of a website can vary massively. After a 30-minute consultation call with a member of the Partnerships team we will be able to produce a proposal for your project that will include costs. As a starting point though, a budget under £10,000 would not be realistic for developing a website that’s going to move your business forward.

02
How long does the full website development process take?

This depends on the size and complexity of the website. We have designed a process that captures all the essential elements of a website. We involve you throughout the process. The most common cause of delays on projects is unfortunately usually the client. We usually advise a project will take around 12 weeks if all sign off points completely on time.

03
Are there any on-going costs once my website is fully developed?

All websites need to have a hosting agreement in place with a hosting company. KIJO also offers managed Cloud hosting with a WordPress specialist hosting company which means we can handle all your hosting requirements. Our hosting packages can be found via the following link: KIJO.co.uk/wordpress-hosting. KIJO also offers WordPress maintenance packages. It is generally considered best practice for all WordPress websites to have a maintenance package in place. To view our WordPress maintenance packages please click on the following link: KIJO.co.uk/wordpress-maintenance

04
Can you advise me on how to gain users for my website?

We don’t offer website marketing services in house at KIJO. However, we can refer you to a trusted 3rd party agency who will offer you preferential rates due to our referral should you use them for website marketing services.

05
Is the website’s IP ours once developed?

This is all handled in the project contract. We will transfer all new IP created on the project, if requested, over to you. We will also discuss any existing KIJO IP we wish to use on the project, if any, and the licensing terms associated with that IP.

06
Do you have examples of websites you have previously developed?

Yes, we have a large portfolio of sites for you to look at. The best and easiest way to check out our recent websites portfolio is via the following link: https://kijo.co.uk/work/websites/
